It’s Friday and that means it’s time for me to share a few of my favorites from this past week. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy my recap.
Monday night we had a chance to take pictures in a beautiful field full of bluebonnets. You can see all of the pictures here.
However, I think this one is my favorite. The things you have to do to get the perfect picture.
Woohoo for granite!!! Our new bathroom counter-top arrived this week.
This week the bathroom remodel has been very slow. We are in a holding pattern until next week because we are waiting for the new glass for our shower and all of the painting will be done this weekend. Earlier this week I posted a picture on instagram with five different gray paints. I had a lot of great paint suggestions from friends but we ultimately decided on – Anonymous (Behr paint).
This week we were invited to attend our girl’s monthly school assembly. Kate had no idea we were coming and was so surprised to see us. She received Rachel’s Challenge Super Friend Award. We are so proud of her!
This past week has been a week we’ll always remember. I’m so embarrassed and mortified to say this but my girls had lice last week. I was watching a movie with my girlfriends and Danny texted me and told me he had found lice in Abigail’s hair. I instantly starting scratching my head, literally. I left immediately and headed to Target to get an over the counter treatment. I also called her teacher and informed her that Abigail had lice. Abigail said that she had gotten it from a friend at school 😦 . We treated Abigail Thursday night and I was still not satisfied so I made an appointment at The Lice Place. This place got everything out of the her hair but I’ll be honest they were very pricey. However, in may case it was worth every penny. I’ve been checking myself daily, I’ve had our school nurse check me twice and so far I am in the clear. But sadly we found one in Kate’s hair Monday night. I was so frustrated because we were taking every precaution and had cleaned the house from top to bottom. So we started the treatment and cleaning process with her Monday night.
These little bugs freak me out so we did another treatment on the girls (just in case) Wednesday night. My friend swears by this treatment – LiceMD. I even treated myself just to make sure I didn’t have any in my hair.
This week I have been researching any and every home remedy out there. Another friend told me to try this recipe…
- Saturate hair with Listerine (Original). Put a shower cap on your head and leave it one for 45 minutes.
- Wash hair with Green Apple Suave
- Saturate hair with Apple Cider Vinegar. Put a shower cap on your head and leave it on for 45 minutes.
- Rinse out the apple cider vinegar and apply Suave Coconut conditioner. While the conditioner is on your hair come through the hair with a Nit comb (ordered mine on amazon).
- Finally do one last rinse of the hair.
I have not tried this home remedy but I have all of the items just in case I need to do something again. I have been applying Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel Hair Spray to their hair daily and they also have been wearing their hair in a pony tail or bun everyday. I am praying that we don’t have do this again. Does anyone have any other advice of how to deal with this?
Almost every day at work I am sharing funny memes or videos with my office mate. So I thought I would share a few of my favorites that I found this week.
I am constantly pinning things on my pinterest board and this is totally me…
I probably lose my keys on a daily basis…
This one is too funny and so true…
I have been focused on eating healthy but I would love to have a plate full of pizza rolls…
This is exactly what my kids do daily…
I hope these memes brightened your day. Have a wonderful WEEKEND!!
Live life. Experience love. Be real.
