Obviously she's beyond talented, and luckily, I caught a little lesson from her!
My sister-in-law Brandi is one heck of a designer. The first picture is where we spent our Friday afternoon at her place. Not too shabby! She taught me tips and tricks on how to pin, wrap and twist to make a boutonnier.
Lovely, I'd say.
I suppose Brady woke up Saturday morning in the mood to pretend. He tried on my glasses, so I figured he'd appreciate the sombrero, too. This was the extent of our Cinco de Mayo, along with an incredible filling Mexican lunch with dad.
(The child has me wrapped.)
Saturday afternoon, a bridal portrait updo for a special lady was on the book.
If you want to know the truth...I have a love-hate relationship with very important updos.
Probably because she's relying on me to give her the hairstyle she's always imagined.
-That's pressure, love.-
Hairstylists carry an art of keeping emotions hidden, you know.
The afternoon held a trip with a trunk full of potting soil, herbs to plant, and a can of black glossy paint. Cilantro was #1 on my list, but also brought home boxwood basil, sweet mint, and orange mint.
I haven't kept the best record of keeping plants in their best condition, or even alive for that matter, but buying plants is sort of like a new beginning to grow something special! (Or to say you didn't kill it.) Now that salsa is a staple in our home, cilantro is in high demand.
I feel like there's too much to blog about! The construction in the back yard is coming right along. I can't wait to show before and after pictures.
Also, my most recent big change: LIFE IN THE NEW SALON.
I'll be proudly posting pictures, soon!
