Going, Going, BLONDE

You guys I got new hair!!!! I'm really excited to introduce to you a nice little change up in my look! I've shifted to the blonde side of things. While my last hair stylist was amazingly talented when it comes to doing hair, it was time for me to press the reset button. And like Sheryl Crow says "a change, a change would do you good" - because I relate most things in life to music and my religious beliefs haha. A new and beautiful friend was able to help me out and recommended me to another amazingly talented stylist. (Thanks Jenna, you da best!) Not only did I get my hair did (Missy Elliot voice- see told ya I relate it all to music) but David (Jenna's husband) made Will and I the BEST burgers and Wings and we met at their beautiful home so we got to make a fun night of it all. The new stylist is a published hair stylist from Vegas but she travels to Oklahoma every few months to tend to her Oklahoma clients. With all of that said, if you are in need of a change up, if you're stylist has moved, you've moved, or you just need to push the refresh button like I did, you should check her out. Her coloring techniques are amazing! If you don't believe me, check out her insta page @sheartale , LOOK at those fade techniques, wowzers!

Now, to the fun part of this post, look at this new do! While I've always been happy with my old hair, I had reeeeally been wanting to go frozen blonde and it hadn't been quite achieved yet, my hair is super dark so I get it. This time, though, we were able to achieve the look I was aiming for and we did olaplex, (new to me) so my hair is healthy and blonde, which I kind of never thought would be possible. I think I'll stick with this look for a little bit!

Side by side for ya... 


Before

Here's the photo of the hair (via pinterest of course)
I've been shooting for and been using as reference to the stylist I've had the pleasure of working with

AFTER... tadaaaaa I'm swoon guys! 


*Oh and also, if you need some music to get your morning started, I've posted a video for you to jam out with me!


What do you guys think of the new do?! Happy HUMP DAY by the way, it's sure been on "those weeks" this week for me so far. Work has been crazy!!!! Hope you guys are having an awesome week though, and I know mine will get better as we are having some of our framily over this weekend to enjoy a pool day! We are so excited!

Just for clarification my old hair stylist is here local in Norman, and is extremely talented! She has reasonable pricing, but she's a very busy lady as she has a ton of clients! If you need your hair fixed pretty I highly recommend looking in to what she can do for you too. You can find her at the mane man salon, and I'd say just ask for the most talented individual there and I'm sure all of the other stylist will openly admit she's your girl and she will get you taken care of!

Since I'm really into cooking lately...

I thought I would share some recipes every once in a blue moon post that I've tried out. But only the ones that are pretty tasty of course! You should try them, if you like to cook or just have the itch to try something different. They are super easy and require little effort... my kind of cooking ;)

Cajun Sausage Pasta:

Ingredients:
- 1 (14 ounce) package of smoked turkey sausage cut into 1/4 inch slices
- 8 ounces of pasta of your choice (I used thin spaghetti noodles)
- 2 cups of milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp of cajun seasoning
- 2 1/2 tbsp of flour
- 2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese (so much better than the Parmesan that comes in a shaker)

Directions:
1)  Prepare & cook pasta the way you normally would and then sit to the side

2) Saute sliced sausage in a large skillet over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes, turning every once in a while

2) Add milk, flour & cajun seasoning and bring to a boil

3) Reduce heat, simmer gently for about 10-12 minutes with a tight lid, only removing the lid to stir. Stir until sauce is thickened.

4) Remove from heat and stir sauce and sausage into your pot of pasta, then mix in the cheese

Enjoy!!!

Wills loved this meal, he's a huge fan of skillet meals like hamburger helper, I thought this was a step up and SUPER easy, I'll be making this again soon!
