First, here's what we looked like on the 4th of July; VERY PATRIOTIC!!
|Yes, that's grass in Dexter's mouth haha|
Well, that time has come to an end. Cody and I match ALL THE TIME NOW! Sometimes on accident, and I don't even make him go change! I'm growing up, you guys!
Second noteworthy thing: I've stopped using shampoo and conditioner! (Ew, gross..) NOT! It's actually really awesome. I've been off shampoo and conditioner for a little over a month, and it's called "No-poo" haha, no joke. I use a mixture of baking soda and water on my roots and vinegar/water on my ends. I've been in the transition period this whole time, meaning my hair just looks like it's sopping wet all the time and super nasty (because the shampoo and conditioner have stripped my hair of all the natural oils, and it's taking a long time for my head to regulate the making of said oils) UNTIL THIS PICTURE DAY! I washed my hair, and VOILA! It was looking SO, SO much better. I did a happy dance, for sure. I've been having to wear my hair up and curly so it would look alright, and for once, it dried and looked good! Still not the best, but I'm getting there (: I was really excited to hear about this, because if you'll remember a long time ago, I posted about switching my face wash to Yes To products? Well, I was all for going with the product with less chemicals and trying to get more into the natural beauty products, so when I heard about "No-poo"ing, I was stoked! Also, my sister-in-law Jenae has a blog and she writes the most amazing posts that are so spiritual, enlightening, and awesome. She's an amazing person, who also makes her own cosmetics! So sometime in the near future, I'll be joining her and my other sisters-in-law and mother-in-law for a girls day where we'll be making all of that fun stuff with her! I'm so excited to continue this chemical free lifestyle!!

Third thing, this actually happened back in May and I forgot to post anything about it. SORRY BRITTNEY! Brittney Escudero, my longest, best friend, moved to Utah! And I took her to Bridal Veil falls for her first time! We went in the middle of the day, and NO ONE was there! It was wonderful! Just her, me, and Dexter! Dex loved it because he got to be off his leash just running around in the water, chasing birds and looking at the fish.
|I love his little wet chicken legs (:|
Fourth, Cody really truly loves me. Want proof?
Fifth, if you've stalked our pictures and memorized our entire house, you'll realize that our bedroom wall in the photo above is now gray! And you'd be so right! And creepy! Well, here are the pictures to document the changes that our room has gone through (and it still has so much more that will happen to it.. I just need money first :)
|Note the wallpaper. Also, those pictures on the right had just gotten moved.. I was trying to figure out how to hide the breaker box, but they were above my jewelry and then the other was above Cody's night stand.|
|Started painting the far wall gray to see what it looked like, and the back wall was like a nasty yellow color.|
|This is the windowsill. Disgusting. Look at the picture with the air conditioner (way up there) and you might be able to see that it looks much better now!|
|While Cody was installing the air conditioner, Dex found a good spot right on the bottom shelf of my nightstand, and stayed there for half an hour! Such a silly puppy!|
|The lines between the gray wall and the white wall aren't perfect, but this is to show that the wall and door are now the same, bright white!|
|Then onto the next part of our painting the bedroom.. WRITING!|
|The pencil sketch of the word wall, copied from A Beautiful Mess|
|Do you see the typo there? Two lines above the orange line, "I love you more ever..." haha, whoops! It's now a new phrase for Cody and I (:|
It's not perfect, and it didn't turn out how I had imagined it.. So it's still not my favorite thing, but it's good for now (: And it'll look much better when we finish decorating the rest of the room, I'm sure. It's fun, it's different, it's us!
Sixth, Cody and I have been learning this song:
He's learning the guitar part, and I am learning the piano part! I love this song (:
Seventh, I made this Parmesan Chicken Bake for dinner last night, and HOLY YUM!! SO good and so easy to make!! And I only made like 3 dirty dishes from it! You definitely need to make it tonight!
Well, I'm off to go wash my hair (haha, I can be one of those girls that uses that as an excuse for not going somewhere, because not using shampoo/conditioner takes a lot longer)! Have a great Tuesday!
