Here are some pics from our vacation
(excuse the photo quality, these are a mix of 4 different cameras and cell phones)
Visiting with friends
Playing with the cousins
Enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Oregon Coast and Tillamook
Spending lots of time with the Grandparents
My husband and I got to go on 2 great dates with my sister and brother in law. One of them was to a Cinetopia for dinner and a movie
The other was to go shooting at a range. We rented a couple of different kinds of guns as well as using my brother in laws' firearms
And then of course, shopping!
It was a blast to have a mall to shop at. I'm kinda thankful I can't do that all the time. It's more fun for the occasional treat.
My Mom went with us on one of the days ♥
I got my hair cut and colored for the first time since April. I don't have anyone I trust here to do it, so I'm just willing to wait for my visits back home.
Since I'm growing it out, she just did some trimming and added layers and texture. We did some highlights and lowlights as well as doing two sections of lavender. I loved it, but the color washed out within a couple of days :(
I went back in and she added true purple, which is REALLY dark and a little too "punk" for my taste, but it will fade with time. I'm enjoying having a little bit of sassy fun in my hair!
We came back to Alaska with her snow and -28F temperatures. These temps have been holding strong and gotten colder, hanging around -40F+, so the kids and I have only left the house one time in a week. We're holed up, watching Christmas movies, doing school and small household chores. It's been lovely. We're so ready for Christmas.
