InstaSaturday #25 - Asking lots of advice.

I'm the worst blogger. I started doing InstaFridays so I could link up with other bloggers who do it and get all community like. But I always forget to link up, or I wait until midnight on Friday when all the good little community bloggers have long ago put away their laptops. Oh well. At least I try(ish).

First thing.....

I decided that light brown ombre look from last month was a little too safe. 

So I pulled out all the stops and went SERIOUS brunette. 

Kind of freaking out. Can't decide what I think about it. This is a big change.

Should I keep it? You can see the "blond me" on the right hand side bar for comparison. 

LOVE my stylist! She's awesome and has great prices. She's in Meridian, so if anyone is looking for a new hair gal, its Jenni at Grand Illusion

That above photo is pretty much the only time I've had my hair out of a bun since I had it done. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cold here!!!!! The frigid air is reeking havoc on my new do. It's too staticy to do anything. 

What do you guys use to tame your winter static?

Boise is not supposed to be this cold. But it sure is beautiful.

Shane told the kids all week that he would pull them on the sled when he gets home from work. But he's been working extra late and has been leaving before they are even out of bed. So the other day he called in to work and said he would be a little late, pulled the kids through the neighborhood before the sun was up. What a good daddy.

Been waking up every morning to this little face, instead of the bearded one I'm used to. 

Cannot keep Collin in his bed! I used to keep a babygate across his door, but he'd just call to me 5 times a night telling me he had to go the bathroom. 

What do you do to keep your kids in their beds without locking them in their rooms???

And lastly....


No really. Baby Jesus had been missing from our nativity set since mid December. 
The Southern part of me thought it deserved a formal proclamation. :)

Ok. That's my thrilling week.

P.S. Did anyone catch that tiny detail on Downton Abbey that might lead to setting Bates free???

Ohhh, the brunette is beautiful! You look very Angelina Jolie-ish in that pic :) All of your snow looks fun. I love playing in the snow with my kids - but I hate cold! If we could have snow, but it be warm at the same time, I would be ecstatic!!

I've heard that if you blow out your hair in a humid room, it tames the maybe run the shower for a bit while you style? I think the brunette is really cute! It's very sophisticated looking, IMHO.

I gave my daughter treats every day she stayed in her bed.

Love, love the brunette!!!

LOVE the brown hair!! So chic! Sometimes I run a dryer sheet over top of my hair if it's too static-y :)

Lucky is the man who gets to fall asleep and wake up next to that beautiful head of hair.

I've not read any dissenting post, but damned be the wretched soul that aspires to be the first. Be it known to the world how gorgeous I think your hair looks- brunette, blonde, or bald (but don't go bald if you can help it; that was just a hypothetical).

Thank you Shane :)

I looooove the dark hair. It looks really pretty and I think you should keep it!

Love the dark hair! Dryer sheet for static hair. My son is almost 2 and is still in a crib, so I have no idea how to keep a child in his bed. :)

burnette is RIGHt on for winter. Then you can slightly start adding blonde back for summer. I do it almost every single year. I love yours :)

Date night with your hubby, check. Confirmation that your dye job was the right choice, check. Run-in with a random lady at Kneaders, double check!

Good to meet you...thanks for letting me crash your evening for a few minutes! Amy
