novelphoto this has been my best friend the past few days... go get yourself some! #ihatestylingmyhair #sprayandgo 5d
  •   thevintagefrock Ohh! Where is this from? I've been using the suave brand and really like it, but could always try something new! 5d
  •   novelphoto I actually got this at TJ Max and they had a few different scents to choose from. I try not to wash my hair everyday and this works so great! @thevintagefrock 5d
  •   kristengiuliani Never heard of this brand before! I love dry shampoo--I usually only wash mine twice a week. I too have used the Sauve @thevintagefrock and Bumble & Bumble brand. Is it a good scent? #thickhairdontcare 5d
  •   novelphoto Yes! The scent is very nice. It's a wee pricey compared to the suave $8 at TJ. But it's regularly $15 at Ulta and Sephora, so still cheaper. And I'm cheesy and a sucker for packaging #itlooksprettyonmycounter @kristengiuliani 5d

  •   novelphoto Yes! They begged to try it this year. So far they are transitioning well... we have a few friends from previous duty stations, so that helps. But not going to lie- I'm a wee bit nervous about my teaching (and patience) abilities 😕 @kristengiuliani 3w
  •   mom_and_a_camera Haha. I don't know a single homeschool mom who wasn't nervous about her ability, especially her patience! :-D #yougotthis #youwillrockit #theywilldoawesome #okiamdone 2w
  •   novelphoto Yes. I'm sure it will all go way better than I'm imagining lol. It's really just finding our groove right now @mom_and_a_camera 2w
  •   kristengiuliani Pray it all goes well for you guys! I am starting preschool homeschool with Freddy--but we will send him to school for kindergarten. 2w
  •   novelphoto Yes! I did that with them when they were younger... we did a little catechism/Bible class and phonics and art and it was such a sweet simple time with them. Sometimes I wish i could go back to those days. But this age is fun too lol @kristengiuliani 2w

  •   novelphoto Well it's grown on me @mkvphoyt I think it was the initial filth of it. The previous owner lived alone with a three year old and a huge dog and obviously never took the time to clean. It took us much longer to unpack this time around because we had to clean very thoroughly 3w
  •   holly_katrina Teach him the art of coffee making and cork screws and you'll be set. 3w
