date night hair

I'm in a little bit of fragile pregnant emotions mode right now. I had the most stressful day in a long line of stressful days with my three kiddos today. I had texted my husband to say how overwhelmed I was and he responded that he already had a babysitter lined up for the night and we were going out to dinner! Aside from the timing being dead on, my husband has never planned a date out A.)without me telling him to take me out, and B.)done any of the arrangements on his own. He is a really great man and wonderful husband, but planning dates just isn't his forte, so this news on this day was amazing.

I kept the kids busy for a bit before I started to work on my hair and I had literally just finished and was about to lay on a good shellac of hairspray when the phone rang. It was my sweet husband, calling to say that there was a situation at work and we weren't going to be able to go out tonight after all. Despite his reassurances that it's all good to go for tomorrow night instead, I couldn't help but sit on the edge of the tub and cry my little preggo eyes out. Never the less, my hair looks good and I want photographic evidence of it.

Those stinkin' french twists are tougher than they look! I'm sure it doesn't help that I haven't really had hair long enough to do one in YEARS so it's completely foreign to me.

My husband has no clue when he'll be able to get home. I'm going to guess it'll be after the kids go to bed, so I need to get some sort of dinner going now that it's 7pm.


  1. You are so talented! I understand your frustrations but to have them magnified by pregnancy and hormones, it can seem overwhelming sometimes. I think you are amazing!

  2. Your hair looks stunning!! I hope everything worked out and you got your dinner date in the end:)

  3. You are so beautiful, and I SOOOO relate with your life and being a busy mom in need of a little TLC and romantic night away. I agree, YOU LOOK FAB and this was a worthy photo documentation and thats even better than lasting one night! XOXO!

  4. So happy I found your blog (though this post made me sad for you). Looking forward to reading your future posts. Couple of questions...where did you get your glasses? They are fab! And your 'do is amazing! Will you do us a favor and post a how-to on the backcombing?
