Lighten up for Spring

I hope I’m not speaking too soon here, but I think our winter weather is just about over. It’s been looking more and more like Spring around here and last week we were actually in the 50’s and had some sunshine. Watch out…heat wave! Of course, we’ve also been having a ton of rain and even a thunderstorm, but I’m pretty confident that the snow and freezing temperatures are gone. Fingers crossed.
The warmer weather and the change of season means it’s time to change up the hair. I’ve been doing the ombre thing for a while now and I contemplated getting rid of it altogether this winter. I’m so glad I didn’t now though because I decided to kick it up a notch and lighten up my hair a bit more. Thankfully I have some awesome hair friends that I went to beauty school with, so we set something up and she came over with bleach and foils in hand and we got started. I asked her to bring the foils up around my face more and it came out better than I imagined.

I’m so happy with the results! Everything blends perfectly and it really lightened the whole thing up a lot. The great thing about ombre is is that it’s such low maintenance. There are no roots to deal with, which is a huge plus for someone like me because my hair grows really fast. If I did regular highlights I’d have roots showing in about a week. With this color there’s way less up-keep. 
While my color was processing, Ayden got a hair cut too.

Usually I’d cut his hair myself, but with this pregnancy I haven’t been wanting to do it at all. Unless he just wanted me to shave it off, but he wasn’t too excited about that idea. I’m thankful I have a great friend who makes house calls!
Speaking of warmer weather, the kids started swim lessons at our local YMCA to get ready for summer. Neither of them really knows how to swim, and I figured now is the time since I’ll be hugely pregnant this summer. I don’t want to have to haul my big ol’ butt in after them if they start drowning or something, and next summer I’ll have three kids to keep an eye on (which is crazy to think still). They are loving lessons and I love watching them practice and show off their skills.

So what do you think of my hair? Ombre- yay or nay?
And what’s the weather like where you’re at? I hope it’s warming up a little.
Don’t forget- Tuesday is the big day! Ultrasound day!
Can’t wait to update you all with the big news.
