HOLIDAY HAIR SERIES: Finale! Topsy Tail Updo
Holiday Hair Series || Topsy Tail Updo || Episode 4 || A Dash of Salter

This is the final episode in my Holiday Hair Series. My first hair tutorial series, ever. It was so much fun to put these together. I definitely have learned a lot about shooting video and I know I still have a long way to go. I want to know what you guys think though…are the videos more helpful or should I revert back to pictorials? 

Anyway, I love this Topsy Tail Updo! It looks surprisingly chic with hardly any effort. It’s what I wish every hairstyle could be. (#momlife am I right?!) It’s all I have the time and energy for these days. 

Bumpdate for you guys. I’m 23 weeks now, I’ve gained 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks and i officially feel the waddle coming on. I know the discomfort has only just begun, but it’s so fun that I’m showing now. It’s obvious that I’m pregnant and not just putting on the holiday pounds. 

Even though there’s been plenty of that too. 

Baby Grey is kicking all the time and I can’t believe how strong he is already. I’m hoping he is just a little lighter than Turner was (8 lbs 1 oz) come birthing time, but so far he seems just as big if not bigger. I’m starting to think about how crazy it’s going to be to have two little boys in diapers, which is giving me just a little anxiety. Probably more than I actually realize.

And yet, watching Turner this holiday season has made me more excited than ever to have another precious little human around. His enthusiasm to the trees, lights, snow, nativity, music, and giving has made my heart so full this year. He is so curious and eager to learn. His daily discoveries bring so much joy into my life. I can only imagine what it will be like to watch Turner interact with his little brother and they can learn together. 

Christmas is this Friday and we’re officially ready for it to arrive! Gifts are wrapped, groceries are purchased and we’re ready for a week full of cuddles, reflection, and love with our family! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas filled with joy and love! XO

All of Matthew's presents have come in the mail, except one! The rest are wrapped and ready to go! Now I'm just anxious to give them. I love the spirit of giving at Christmas time. We have some service activities planned for people we love and those who are less fortunate. It warms my heart so much to know we're helping others feel joy and love this time of year. I'm so grateful for all I have and that I'm able to give. I hope your holidays have been filled with joy and love so far! Do you have special giving traditions? I'd love to here about them! Lots of love!

HOLIDAY HAIR SERIES: Messy Top Knot
Holiday Hair Series || Messy Top Knot || Episode 2 || Video Tutorial

Hey, guys! It's that time again. The time to share the second episode in my Holiday Hair Series! I wanted to share a more casual look with you today. Because, let's be real, most of the time before the holidays I feel like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get things done before it's too late. This look is perfect for all of those errands and endless amounts of gift wrapping! I wear it ALL THE TIME. Plus, it goes great with the closet full of chunky scarves I own. Haha! I've always struggled to get the perfect messy look until I figured out this style. It's the perfect amount of messy and I can do it in minutes!! I hope you enjoy and stay tuned for the next two videos in my series! I'm saving the best for last! ;)
