Lets talk about HAIR!

Hey there! Lets talk about summer hair!

Summe hair takes a beating. After spending all that time in the pool and spending more time outside in the hot summer heat, my hair is usually pretty sad looking by September. How about you? (are you nodding?)

It is usually this time of year when I start perusing drug store shelves trying to find a new product that will help me keep my hair happy during the summer. When Intelligent Nutrients gave me the amazing opportunity to review two of their products, I was so excited!  Intelligent Nutrients was founded by Horst M. Rechelbacher- the original founder of the Aveda Corportation. The Intelligent Nutrients Harmonic haircare line  (shampoo & conditioner) are certified organic and gluten free (seriously!). They smell heavenly and contain an ingredient list that you can actually read.

Heidi at Intelligent Nutrients said this to say  – “We use ingredients that are food-grade organic, meaning the best for both your body and the planet.” which I found pretty awesome. Knowing that what I was putting on my scalp was something that was free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, ethoxylates, PEG, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances was a great feeling. It also let my dry softly and CURLY! After using the product a couple times I noticed that the natural wave in my hair was totally loving the shampoo. Oh, and the minty tingle was an added bonus.

Well ladies, it is good stuff. I love how these products work with my hair. I am excited to continue to use these products over the summer!

I have finished two books that I really liked recently. The Paris Wife & The Light Between Oceans – Currently reading: The Good House 

Chris and I made a Google doc spreadsheet of all of the houses that we want to visit. This makes me beyond excited.

Butternut Squashington has an appointment to get professional photos taken next week. I am splurging for a good cause! Every year a local business puts together a calendar of pups that have been rescued. This calendar is then sold for a local animal organization. I am able to get Bud’s pictures taken at a great rate, and there is a chance he will be in a calendar! How cool is that?

I PASSED MY LIBRARY EXAM! Finally! Knowing that I am DONE taking NYS teaching exams is a fantastic feeling.

On the docket for this long weekend: Reading, running & resting.

How about you? 

Farewell, wiener dog friends.

Today two of my favorite pups passed away. Chris’s parents had two older dachshunds that were both not doing very well. Farewell, Bob and Dug. You will forever be missed.

Dug is the larger short haired wiener dog (Darth Vader), and Bob is the one with crazy grey hair (Chewbacca). Cooper is a BABY in this video. He plays Hans Solo.

Cory (Chris’s brother) made this video about 5 years ago.
