Hair cutting

Cutting Each Other’s Hair + Playtime

As soon as Sadie got home from spending the night at my parents’ it was full speed ahead with playtime. We were stuck indoors due to rain, but we lit a candle and made the best of it!

I have started keeping Sadie’s toys up high and getting them down for her when she asks and whoa has it been life changing.

Things are a little less messy around here and her toys feel new to her when it has been a while since she last played with them. I think her favorite “toy” is just time with mom and dad. She rode around on Jimmy’s back and thought it was the coolest.

Us girls had some reading time together, which I cherish so much. We were reading Cookie’s Week (<– affiliate link!) in the photo below, which is a big favorite with us. What’s better than a children’s book about a cute cat?!

After we put little Sader Tot to bed, Jimmy and I cut each other’s hair. This definitely wasn’t my first time cutting Jimmy’s hair, but it was his first time cutting mine!

He was way more nervous than me about making a mistake while giving me a trim but I assured him that my crazy hair hides any cutting mishaps pretty well 🙂

Yeah, we totally have a barber cape for Jimmy and a smock for me. I take my hair cutting duties seriously 😉

Have you ever cut your own hair or someone else’s?

Things I want to remember

Garden Card

Receiving the cutest card via snail mail from Amy. Love her.


Falling asleep (while reading, ha) next to one of my favorite dogs (Haley–a pup I pet sit) and waking up to realize she was still there. This dog has pretty much stolen my heart over the past year.

Philippians 4 13

How much fun it is to watercolor scripture.

Cat on dryer

Finding a client’s cat on top of their dryer. If I had to guess, the top of the dryer is probably 10 feet off the ground!

Jimmy Before A HaircutJimmy after haircut

My husband before and after I cut his hair. He’s adorable in a barber cape. My prayer is that if we ever have a son, I hope he’s just like Jimmy. Kind and smart and cute and funny. I love him so much.
