The Great Tree Hunt 2016The Great Tree Hunt 2016The Great Tree Hunt 2016This year we decided to check out a tree farm we’ve never been to and it was so rainy and COLD. We were soaking wet and completely covered in mud!! I didn’t realize how cold it was going to be and how long it would take to get there, so by the time we arrived it was already getting dark and we were definitely not bundled nearly enough! Stormy and Everly were very serious about picking out the right tree, whenever we would ask “this one?”, one of them would always say no not THAT one! We were taking so long that it got too dark and we had to hike back and pick out one that was already cut because we couldn’t see them anymore (I know, totally lame), but we were just thankful to finally get one and get outta there so we could warm up! We got the kids their very first hot chocolate on the way home to celebrate, surprisingly Stormy didn’t like it but now Ev’s is hooked! I’m not sure how someone doesn’t like liquid chocolate, but Justin and I were happy to take over drinking it 😉 We woke up the next day to a gorgeous sunny day, ha! But we had so much fun and made memories that will last our lifetime, and that is definitely worth being a little cold and wet for a few hours. <3

That’s one big banana!!! Ha! 😉 On a recent drive back from visiting family in Oregon, we decided to make a quick stop in Portland to grab some Mississippi Pizza (they have the absolute best gluten free pizza and live music for kids! Can’t pass that up right?). On our way there we spotted this giant banana mural, which is most likely the biggest banana we’ll ever see in our lifetime, so we had to get out and show the kids. They seriously loved it and kept taking turns running up and smacking it! It was hilarious! I’m trying hard to imagine what that must be like, being so little and seeing an enormous version of your favorite food plastered on a wall, probably had something to do with why they were giggling so much. Stormy was also really excited about that little gorilla and came up with some pretty darn good impersonations…it was some great road trip entertainment for the rest of our drive back!

Mommy and Me Matching Mohawk Hairdo

Mommy and Me Matching Mohawk HairdoMommy and Me Matching Mohawk HairdoMommy and Me Matching Mohawk HairdoMommy and Me Matching Mohawk HairdoMommy and Me Matching Mohawk HairdoI do my hair in this faux hawk updo pretty often (you may have noticed from my profile pic and Instagram page) …maybe even a little too often. But it’s one of those hairdo’s that looks like it took a long time when it’s actually very quick and easy, therefore it has become my go to. Besides that, a basic topknot looks TERRIBLE on me, I think it may be due to my large head. I tend to gravitate towards bigger hairstyles that will hopefully compensate for this noggin of mine, haha, good theory right? So, as soon as Ev’s hair grew out long enough I just had to do this hairdo on her too! Baby hawks are seriously the cutest, and I gotta get my matchy matchy time in while I still can 😉

To replicate this faux hawk updo, just divide hair into 3-5 topknots down the middle of your head (I do 3 when I have less time and usually poof up the front of my hair), and that’s it! So easy and definitely adds that extra bit of spunk to any outfit. One of these days when I have a bit more time I’m going to try adding some braids! I’ll let you know how it turns out!
