Happy Halloween!!

The Cosmetology department had an awesome time dressing up for
Halloween!  The girls really went all out.  We had some pretty good costumes.
The students on campus, came into our department and voted on us, while we
were doing clients.  Yes, we had to work on clients while we were in full costume!
It was a riot!  Here are a few shots of the fun we had!



Yep, that's me!  I'm the Wicked Witch of the West!!  I had so much fun dressing up!

Pretty Little Dollhouse

Didn't you always want a beautiful dollhouse to play with when you were a child?  My grandfather made me one when I was 9 years old and I loved that house!!  It was ginormous!!  It only fit in my grandparents garage, so I didn't get to play with it all the time.  I really wish I had pictures of that house.  It reminded me of the Gone With the Wind house.  Just beautiful!

Kailey had been wanting one for years, but I knew the daunting task of putting this thing together.  But, on her 11th birthday Memaw and Grandaddy bought her the kit fro Hobby Lobby and said "Have fun building!"
And, so we did!  It took a combined effort of David, Kailey and me over 3 months time.  We only worked on it over the weekends.  Here are some pics of our pride and joy!


We painted the house a pretty green color called "Witch Hazel" from
Home Depot.  Spray painted the shutters and door black and painted all
the trim white.  It turned out lovely!








I found this turntable that holds a lot of weight and this helps to turn it around
when she wants to play with it.









This is the baby and little girl room




Kailey did all the decorating herself! She used scrap book paper for wallpaper.  Genius!!
The letters are from Hobby Lobby and I thought that was a cute idea to Put "ABC" on
the wall.



She also put scrap book paper on the bed.  It was a plain white bed and she jazzed it up
a bit with the pink with black polka dot paper.  She loves the name "Reese" so she spelled
it out over the bed.



Here is the Momma and Daddy room.  We found most of the furniture from
Melissa & Doug.  The family also came from there.




Scrap book paper again for the walls.





Family Room



My Daddy painted that little watercolor over the fireplace for her.  Too sweet!


We found the kitchen cabinets at Hobby Lobby.  They have a whole section for dollhouses
and accessories.  The green color with the bead board is precious!




My very talented Aunt LaTrelle made this cross stitched little rug for her last Christmas.
She will cherish this!



The letters are so cute that spell out "eat"


Now this was a whipping!  Kailey and I stained every single little shingle on this roof!!
I would dip each shingle in the stain with tweezers and Kailey would wipe it off with
a towel.  This took us a few weekends to do!



We are all very proud of this little house and will keep it for generations to come!
Sometimes Kailey will even find me playing and rearranging furniture!
Wouldn't you?

Blessings,

Kailey's 13th Birthday


I say it every year, but I really can't believe my baby is growing up!
She has turned into a teenager!  Now, I really can't believe that one!
She was so excited to turn 13, and I can completely remember that same feeling
when I turned 13.  So, I wanted to make it a special one.  We had some of
her girlfriends for a "Spa" day at an actual spa!  The girls had an absolute blast!



My grown up girl!




The girls got to wear these super cute robes.  They loved it!






Each girl got their toes done and had nail art applied. 
This lady was a true artist!  She worked with acyrlic paints instead
of nail polish.







The girls worked on flip flops with rag ties while they waited on their stations. 
We had music going, and the girls would dance and be crazy!  It was hilarous!





Here is someone's creation.



Everyone got mini facials.  They ended it, with a chocolate mask, which smelled yummy!



They all had to walk around with this chocolate on their faces until it dried. 
It was a sight, let me tell you!





We ended up back at our place and we had a photo booth waiting for them.
It was so much fun!  We had these mustaches on a stick for them to pose with.
I got them from an Etsy store called Little Retreats.  She has the cutest props and
banners.  The "Photo Booth" sign is also from there.





Tell the girls to pose and they run with it!  We had a pretty good "photo session"!
Girls love to pose!







Kailey found these super cute straws with lips on them and we had to
get those!  It's another Etsy store called Hey YoYo.  She has wonderful
vintage inspired birthday items.  Anything you can think of, she has it.



What a sweet and fun bunch of girls.  Kailey is blessed to have them in her life!


Blessings,
