{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life.

This past spring I attended a fundraiser for a sweet girl in our town.  I ended up having the highest bid on one of the silent auction items, a gift certificate to a newer local beauty salon & day spa!  I have been meaning to schedule an appointment for months, but with the expiration date coming up next month I finally got around to doing so... just in time for Thanksgiving! 

My three pretty girls all had the appointments for their haircuts this morning.

Very happy that the new (to us) hairdresser not only washed their hair in a big fancy sink, but braided their hair (and showed me how) too!

Rose, however, didn't know what to think about her very first haircut....

Home again!  Now if we can just figure out a way to open the front door without one of the cats trying to sneak in every. single. time.

Tomorrow it is my turn for a little pampering, 
including a cut, style and even a spa pedicure!!

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more pictures of contentment.
