date night

OH MY GOSH. I cannot believe it is January 21st already. This year is already going by so fast! These last couple weeks have been jam packed with a ton of fun and a ton of nothing. We have spent most our days at home reading books, coloring and catching up on some serious cuddles on the couch!
However, it had been a while since my son and I had done anything together.  I know he needs some special time with either my husband or I when damn near every other word coming out of his mouth is "MINE" or "NO". His little sister has broken two molars in the last month...so you can imagine the chaos my little home has endured during the holidays.
SO when I saw Mickey's Rockin' Music Festival was coming to town you bet I was on the phone with my husband faster than you can even imagine! He didn't argue when I asked if I could do date night with Kanon while him and Kyah spent some time together...since it hasn't really happened yet (she is kind of a mama's girl!)
We shared a wonderful evening filled with DQ treats and overly priced Disney apparel from the show with some of our best friends!
 We seriously had a BLAST!
And this little girl...

She had SO much fun with her dad, and he had just as much of a good time as she did! She hung out with the guys and thought she was pretty cool sitting in their trucks!
My husband is so sweet he even gave me a mama's dinner out this last Friday. And let me tell you, it was just what I needed. My girls and I shared so many funny stories and laughs at dinner. They all sipped on some yummy adult beverages while I treated myself to a virgin margarita with salt, Y U M. Although we were timed, we all had such a good time and vowed to keep those dinners up!
Needless to say its been quite a fun year already and its only starting. Now...if I can just get my man and I to the spa this weekend for our massages we got eachother for Christmas...that would be the cherry on top of my January!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!

a little about me...


My name is Desiree. My life has completely changed in the last 3 and a half years.
Started out as me wanting to do nothing but hair and make up... it was so much more than a hobby to me so I decided to go to cosmetology school when I was 20...after realizing community college (at that time) was so "not for me". That being said, now that I am 25 years old I cannot wait until I can go back to some kind of school!
As soon as I started doing hair full time I found out that I was going to be a mom that next year! My highschool sweetheart and I  started our family out with a crazy little boy named Kanon...one kid and another year later we have a gorgeous little girl, Kyah, and are also welcoming another babe this summer!

I still love doing hair just not as much as I love being a mom. My other half is an amazing husband and dad and has given me the best gift ever of being able to be a stay at home mom! In all honesty, I don't know that I could even keep a job seeing as how I'm almost always late. Ask any of my friends. However I'm improving on that flaw...slowly but surely! I love to cook and bake. Cooking is starting to become a little easier thanks to Pinterest! ...Baking, well, I'm still working on it!
 Starting a blog has been on my "to-do list" for at least a year now, so I thought the start of a new year would be a perfect time to jump into the internet world. Since having two kids I  actually realize how fast time flies and I would love to be able to have a fun little documentary of our life to look back on. I want to share hobbies of mine, memories of my family ...and anything that's really sparking my interest at the time.  There is so much I want to learn more about in 2014 from healthy cooking to gardening, to fun activities to do with my little ones, and not to mention so many more fun beauty secrets I can tuck up my sleeve to share!
