My Hair Journey

I have been trying to grow my hair out over the last few years. I had long hair for awhile and I cut it off in frustration. I regret that day every day as growing it back out has been a pain in the ass. I have wanted super long hair for years since then and I have never been able to get it to grow past a certain length. This is mostly my own fault. I have for years, used a flat iron on my hair. I know how horrible they are for your hair and I have still used one. I finally cut it out. I am back to straightening my hair with a round brush and blow dryer and I hope to cut out the blow dryer eventually. I need to also get trims on a more regular basis as well.

So here is a nice history in my hair.  I figured a nice timeline of photos would be sufficient. I will start with the day I chopped the hair off.










 This was over the past few years. Now below is today. I must say, the hair game is good today!

 




















I have recently started a once a week coconut oil mask on my hair. I did that last night and my hair loved it! I can tell it will help my hair a lot. I only did the bottom where all of the damage is from the flat iron. I am also in need a trim, I know! I can see it in the picture above. If you have any good tips for growing out your hair, Let me know! I could use them!

Weekend Recap

Can we talk about how amazing the weather was in Virginia over the weekend? Holy moly. It is February but feels like April/May. We have been having 60-70 degree days and I am loving it. I know it means global warming but weather, please stay. Mr. Groundhog, you were wrong about your winter prediction.

1. I went out for drinks and a movie with the girls. We saw the new Fifty Shades Darker. I will say I do like it but the books are much much much better. Do not knock the movie until you atleast give it a chance.


2. Over the weekend, was the year anniversary from when I met and got to work out with Thomas Rhett. I put a post on Instagram about it and how it helped kick start my weight loss and how I am 40 pounds down. Well, Thomas Rhett actually commented on it and that really made my day yesterday.


3. I took Willow to the vet for her second round of puppy shots. She did really good and is growing super fast. She is 20 pounds already and hates walking on a leash. She has been a little sore since the vet appointment and I am hoping it is just the shots. 


Other than that, I enjoyed my weekend, cleaned house and had the windows open because it is so damn nice here in Central Virginia. I hope everyone else is getting this amazing weather like we are!!
