This should really be called “Thursday Favorites” instead of Friday Favorites since all the photos are from yesterday, but hey whatever. Lots of bloggers do a Friday Favorites thing, so here we go. And let’s not forget that this is the THIRD time I’m blogging this week! Go figure, right after I write the post about why I’m struggling to blog, I do a halfway decent job this week. Hopefully I’m onto something!
So on Wednesday, I got the express keratin treatment at Preston Salon Spa. My hair is super frizzy and the humidity in St. Louis is out of control. I literally cannot even straighten my hair in the summer because it frizzes so much. I don’t mind curling my hair, but I feel like I always look super done up or not put together at all if my hair is not curled and just thrown up. Anyway, it’s been years since I’ve gotten a keratin treatment and last time I loved it and this time is no different. I snapped this selfie at the Butterfly House which is very humid and my hair was still bone straight with no frizz!
And check out my blonde! My stylist at Preston Salon Spa put tons of blonde in my hair a couple of weeks ago and then did the keratin treatment in my hair this week. I love her! Preston is definitely THE place to go to for hair in St. Louis!
William posed by a giant butterfly before heading in.
The Butterfly House was shorter lived than I anticipated. William was pretty tired and didn’t understand that you couldn’t touch and kiss the butterflies and had to stay on the path. He did fine while we were there, but it was definitely time to go once we made it through.
We went to my parents’ house afterwards for a couple of hours. We had a blast, as always, but William fell asleep on the car ride home and woke up when I was transferring him. I couldn’t get him back down which is never a good thing. My boy needs his sleep! So I needed to find a distraction and FAST. Over to my sister’s we headed.
Jacob and Audrey provided just the entertainment that William needed! They stacked up their Pottery Barn Kids chairs to make a tower and all piled on top. All fun and games until it crumbled. Luckily, nobody got hurt! We had a fun afternoon over there and did a million things. We baked a cake, the kids played school, the boys played soccer, and Audrey took several selfies of her and William with my phone.
In every selfie, William was mimicking Audrey exactly. Too funny!
And because we like to stay busy, we met our friends Julie and Wolf out for dinner at Five Star Burgers. Julie and I actually went there last week and it was awesome. I had ordered a mushroom and swiss burger that you can see on Instagram. We went for their happy hour with our little ones because they have $1.50 sliders and sides (sweet potato fries!). The boys wouldn’t quite cooperate for a picture (hello, two year olds!), so I’ll share a cute one I got of William walking around the fountain outside the restaurant.
That’s one happy kiddo!
