Happy New Year 2015!!!


This year, we’re having just a few more people than the 4 of us last year. I got the girls all dolled up in their matching Chinese Kimonos!

I even managed to snatch my Husband up for a couple quick selfies before everyone arrived.

My dreads were lookin’ mighty fine on this lovely day!


New Year’s Tradition: Fruit Pizza.

Table’s all set and ready to go for the homemade Chili I’ve been Crockpot simmering ALL DAY!


We are soooo lucky, blessed and grateful to be able to bring in 2015 with our two beautiful girls and our best friends.

John, Stacy, Cody and Lauren all made the 45 minute trek up to our house in the mountains, bearing sleeping bags and gear to crash at our place for the night. With the appetizers armed and dangerous, we were all amped up and ready to have a great time!

This would be their 10th New Year’s together, and it is our 10th New Year’s together as well!!!

What a great milestone to be celebrating with our friends!

We’ve come a long way in 10 years, Nic!!!

10 years later

For starters…and most importantly…we have two beautiful little girls now!

Trying to get them all to take a picture is hard. Getting them to look at me & smile is difficult. Getting them to do all of the above and hold still…

Freaking Nic. Stop moving.

I seriously would take a bullet for these two.


I’ve got sooooo much love for the people sitting at this table.

We toasted, kissed and put the girls to bed! After I finished off nearly everyone’s Champagne…(seriously…I had no idea I was the only one that liked Champagne, lol)…I was ready to get this party started…or pass out. Either way. Good times.

Big mouthed, drunk Zoe…pretending to know how to play darts.

I probably hit the wall, lol.


We hung out playing darts and huddling beside the 5 electric & propane heaters we had going. Someone should really insulate this garage!

We all passed out a couple hours later. The following morning, I was finally intelligent (or coherent) enough to get the tripod out to take a pic of all of us. Naturally, everyone was thrilled with me. Who doesn’t love a good Hangover photo??? I know I do. MEMORIES PEOPLE!!!


I love each and everyone of you. Thank you so much for coming up to celebrate New Year’s with us! It was awesome and meant the world to us!

HELLO 2015!!!

My locs wouldn’t be even a tenth as awesome if it wasn’t for this special little girl. She’s been separating them for me since day 1.

Snowy dreads.

My first ever Baking Soda soak!!!
It helps to deep clean and shrink the dreads…better than the normal wash in the shower.

Doesn’t everyone lie on the kitchen counter?
I forgot to add salt to the soak, so they didn’t shrink as much as they could’ve…but there was *some* shrinkage…

He hates my dreads, lol!
The back is shrinking hella fast.
I can’t pull them up in my bun anymore.
IMAG7437   IMAG7438
My favorite dread…it has like a bazillion loopies.
I haven’t brushed my bangs in forever…but I’m too impatient to wait for them to lock naturally…I’m gonna have to do something about that…

After 2 weeks of my honey being gone for work…I’m stoke to welcome him home on Christmas Eve!
A week later.
And Happy 5 Month Dreadiversary to me!!!
