Operation Escalones {#4} – Get SO Much Done!

***EDIT***

For some reason, some of the pictures in this post are upside down if you are on a computer, and some random devices. They’re right on some, and upside down on others. I have the blog people on it…until then…stand on your head?

So sorry for the inconvenience!

*carry on*

————————————–

Oh my gosh you guys! I have gotten so much done this weekend!

There have been a few projects that I wanted to complete, and for the most part they’re done, but I don’t have pictures of all of them! So I will tell you about the one I do have pictures of today, and hopefully I’ll pull it together soon for the other ones.

First, an update.

I just got off the phone with the Geek Squad…

THEY FOUND MY PICTURES!!!!!!

Don’t know what that means? Check out my post here.

Okay seriously, I cried.

This is such a relief. Not to mention the fact that I’m finally getting my computer back soon! So happy!!!

Next, I DID dye my hair darker. Like, much darker. See my post about my options here. As I teased promised on Friday, here is a look at my new hair!

As a refresher, here is what my hair looked like before.

I realize that you can only see a part of it, but it shows really well how light it was. Plus, how cute are my kids when they’re sleeping?

Now, granted, that was dyed also. But, I haven’t been this dark pretty much ever. My natural color is a few shades lighter than this color I have now. And not as red. You can’t tell in the pictures, but it has quite a red tint in the light. I LOVE this new color.

Excuse the random picture, Noah was practicing his photography skills.

Here is another (blurry) picture of my hair, and it’s also picture of one of the projects that I was working on this weekend. My sweet friend, Natalie, just moved into a new house, and she needed some stuff on the walls! So we worked on putting some pictures and some new art in her brand-new house. I think it’s perfect for her and this new adventure in her life!

My hair didn’t turn out so awesome that night. I’m still working on the right style for the extra layers she added. But the art behind us on the wall turned out super super cute!

I bought some fabric quarters and canvases at Joann, and then used my dad’s staple gun to staple the fabric onto the canvases. I love the color combination!

Then, with a few more canvases, I just painted the background the three different colors from that flower fabric. The quote is from something I saw when I went shopping the other day, but it didn’t match the colors, so I figured I could just make something that would match perfectly. It says, “This house is filled with love, laughter, friendship.” Then she had some metal art that she spray painted white and green to complement the rest of the cluster.

**side note** those are some awesome girls! I’m so blessed to have such awesome friends!

One last picture of my hair, and (bonus) with Natalie!

Oops. I lied. Noah was sad he wasn’t in this haircut post, because he just got his hair cut today, too. So here he is with his new haircut. Isn’t he handsome!?

image

And there you have it! New hair, new house (for a friend), new art!

Did you get anything done this weekend project-wise? What do you think of Noah’s haircut? Let me hear about it!
