Hosted a big pool playdate at our house today. Total 8 Mommies plus 16 kids! Managed to get a cup of coffee/tea in before we opened up the pool for swimming. It was hectic but kids loved it.
One of the mommies got in the pool last to take this photo. You can see my son and his friend doing their crazy jumps in the back. They are becoming such great swimmers!
After swimming we had lunch. Everyone brought something to share and we had plenty of food. Of course with 16 kids we sat half around the kid table and the other half on the grass picnic style:

My 'Martha Stewart' friend made this amazing fruit pizza for dessert. It had a sugar cookie like crust and cream cheese frosting. Super yummy and beautiful looking!
After lunch the kids played a little more. Everyone helped out cleanning up and when they all left everything was put away! Just dishes left. I put the kids down and they both slept great.
Late afternoon my husband came home and I left for some retail therapy! Enjoyed the nice and silent ride to the mall even in traffic I didn't mind. Amazing how silence can be so precious for a SAHM!
I visited Anthropologie which is where I had a gift certificate from. Got great items from sale. Then Victoria's secret another store I had gift cards from. Got to love retail stores that send you gift cards to use on your b-day month! I bought their new kohl eyeliner and the exotic lipstick in coral. Loved it.
Then it was Forever 21 and you know that in itself is an hour long trip. Scored some amazing flare jeans, army jacket and some accessories. I had a gift certificate from there too. It was so much fun.
Oh, here are the photos from our hair coloring experiment last night!
Got the colors all mixed up over the sink!
My bf mixing her color. You can see how she had caramel highlights in her hair already. These all became red afterwards and looked great.
First I do her hair. Started before the kids went to bed. You can see my son watching us with great interest from the top of the tub!
Then she colored mine!
