It's been a long time baby...

Lawd it's been a long, long time but I think I am finally back on the radar.  I have just not been feeling like chit chatting on the computer, posting pics, or just doing anything, my poor blog has suffered and so has my Youtube channel, bless their hearts.  Lately I have been doing a lot of crafting and sewing and what not and decided to give this thing they call "blogging" another chance.  I see the last post was in February, I seriously thought I had posted something newer than that but I guess not, I am going to give it one more shot and if it does not go well this time then so be it.
So what have I been up to?
Lots of stuff, way too much to post in this one blog so I will give you a little of what is going on with my hair, crafting, and family for the right now and as the days go by I will post more updates.
My hair is in stretched loose two strand twists that I saw Alicia James do a tutorial on on her Youtube channel, if you want to see it check it out.  My hair has been twisted for two weeks and is actually coming down on this Sunday cause my scalp is getting itchy and my hair really just needs to be washed.  I really love these twists and can't wait to do them again

Today I wore a head scarf for the first time and now I think I am in love with them, I was feeling really cute in it too, I got this scarf from a thrift store.

I pulled my twists into a low pony and wrapped the ends of the scarf around it creating the bun, you can find some really good scarf tieing tutorials on Youtube.

So on to crafting: my two recent projects finished this week.

Project #1

This is a quilt I made for a coworker, she gave me  6 boxes of tshirts that she has had for who knows how long and I made her a quilt. It actually turned great but I won't be making another for a while.

Project #2, I took these bootcut jeans and turned them into skinny pink jeans, so me! Luv them and the color pink!

I got this project from Pinterest, that sight rocks, surely got more to come.

Lastly just a few pictures from my family reunion in Slidell, Louisian, for those of you who don't know where that is, it is about 30 minutes from New Orleans right over the bridge. We had a wonderful time celebrating the Rockett family, whoop, whoop!

Cafe Du Monde got the bomb beignets...I think that was my husbands
highlight of the whole trip.
Lake Pontchartrain

So these are some of the right now things I got going on.  Stay tuned to more..... hugs and kisses.

Hair Goodies and last Saturday hair

So today was one of my ho hum hair days, like the one I had ehen I almost got a texturizer, yeah we won't talk about that. It was hair styling time and I just wadn't feeling it so I decided to make me some hair pins to try and get out the funk.
These are so easy and fun to make, once I got started I couldn't quit, I love hair candy and can't wait to wear one tomorrow.
Any straight pins will work, I had a broken EZ-comb so I even added beads to the two combs.
Also....forgot to post last Saturday and Sunday hair so I threw a pic in of that too.
Check out below.

Still waiting

So the last personal bit of information I shared with you was about my miscarriage in December and all that I went through, definitely have moved on from that and back to feeling great. So hubby and I have been trying since last month...nothing yet. My birthday came and went on the 23 of January so a week later was testing time and nothing happened, wow what a shocker considering that with the first two pregnancies when we said lets have a baby I was magically pregnant the next day, not really but that's just how fast my body works, so when I wasn't this time I think we were kind of sad (I was mostly shocked) for about a day and then we were back to normal. I think my husband was more sad, I could see it in his face.
Fast forward to now, I am feeling some anxiety now because what if it doesn't happen again this time? I try to keep my mind off it and just let nature do what it do but that's hard, I know it's harder to get pregnant the older you get but goodness I ain't even 35 yet...and by the way my plan is to not have anymore babies after that age, don't judge me. I'm sure it's normal for me to feel this way  considering my past hoping there is nothing wrong with me after hearing how "easy" it is to get pregnant after a miscarriage.
Hubby and I have also decided that if it doesn't happen this month we are putting it off until the summer cause we don't want another December baby, two December birthdays is more enough. Right now I am just going with the flow, do I get excited of what may be but trying not to get too excited about what may not.
Anywho...I will get back with you when I have more news to share, until then check out Saturdays hair. I just had to throw some hair in there.

Thursday hair

Here is Thursday hair, I must say that I had a great time styling my hair on last week, it was a break from the usual twists that I keep in my pinup style. It only started because I was not all the way happy with the twists I had put in so I just decided to wear my hair out, it definitely is great to be able to style my hair now and not always wear twist outs. Check out pics.
Hair is just rolled and tucked to the back and with a side ponytail, hair is then just pinned under to protect the ends.
