Monday Musings

During my maternity leave, my mom has driven up to Charlotte one day a week to give me an extra set of hands. This has been absolutely invaluable ... and a lot of FUN. I have always appreciated her so much, but seeing her as a grandmother now, the way she loves Camille with her whole heart -- it is truly the best.

Her weekly visits are also a great time for me to get some errands done that are easier to do solo -- I've been to the doctor, eye doctor, and dentist, and this past Thursday I got my hair chopped!


The decision was made around 3am the night prior when we had a little spit-up-in-the-hair situation. No bueno. I had about four or five inches taken off, layers added too. It was a huge change from how long it was to begin with.


My hair inspiration was Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York. She's such a hoot -- maybe my most favorite of the Housewives. And this season, her hair is ON POINT. I showed these two photos to my hair gal.



I love having shorter hair, and although I didn't think those few inches would make a big difference in styling time, they really do!

Saturday night Ian and I decided to throw a little caution to the wind and we had a date nite. Camille was with the best babysitter ever, I'll give you one guess. :) We saw Ray Lamontagne in concert and loved, loved, loved the show. It was a sit-down concert which was awesome. Not to sound old, but that was the best. Isn't it a little crazy that we all buy seats at concerts and then stand in front of them the whole time?

Yep, I'm old.



Although he didn't play our wedding first dance song, You Are The Best Thing, he put on quite a show! We missed our Millie but loved the time together as a couple.

Time for us to head out to Baby Power Hour this morning so mama can get her sweat on. Happy Monday!

I know Camille is loving spending extra time with her grandma and some time alone for your is definitely invaluable! Love the new haircut by the way. I've been dying to chop mine off for over a year but I just can't bring myself to do it.

  17. Ahh the mom chop! I decided to do that early and saying goodbye to 4.5 inches of hair is still haunting me. However I know once I have a little lady crying in the background while I am getting ready I will be thankful. I bet Ray in concert was amazing, I love him. I already have a babysitter (aka grandma) lined up to see Citizen Cope in SF with the hubs in November, looking forward to it he is amazing live!
