Heather's Hair.

I cut and colored heather's hair again, this time we put red highlights and a few blonde peek-a-boos in the back. I also razored her hair and dried it with a round brush to give it a fuller appearance :) I can't wait to get more clients!

Cades Cove, TN

Me and the family went to cades cove on Sunday, and we had a blast! We went to some old abandoned churches and walked through some old grave yards, it was really cool and historic. The kids had a blast, and got nice and dirty! We will be back sooner than later :)

Kids and Volkswagens...

This morning as I made breakfast Brooklynn was playing at my feet so I picked her up and put her on my side and she started screaming Bus! Bus! Bus! Bc of a pic I drew my husband! Hahaha I love that my 2 year old can distinguish between a VW and another car! Hahaha, I think Jackson can name any VW thanks to my husband, he has already told us he wants a beetle for his first car! I freaking love these kids!

Beauty School Rocks and The Owl Tattoo ;)

I've been doing alot of haircuts here lately! Alot at achool and alot at home, which I can't get paid for yet, but the practice is nice. The worst part is the book work, we have to learn anatomy and chemicals and all kinds of really smart people stuff! Hahaha it's really not that bad ;)  I've got a few pics of some haircuts I've done and I'll post those soon. Here is a pic of Heathers first hair cut, I will later post a pic of her new haircut. I also got a really cool owl tattoo on my forearm, it's so cool and I can't wait for everyone to see it! Oh! And I can't wait to post a pic of my tattoo! Enjoy the pics :)

Savannah, GA.

We are on vacation in Tybee Island, GA. And Savannah, GA is really close by, so we decided to go down to riverwalk and look at all of the shops! This is an antique shop with a walkway that crosses over a little road, it looks like a different country here! I just love it and I totally want to open a spa down here one day!!! The kids are loving the ocean and we have seen all kinds of dolphins and have collected tons of shells. Brooklynn already has a huge tan, way better than the rest of us, Jacksons little butt is getting whiter and whiter each day though ;)

I live in the best city in the world! This is Market Square you can see my kids playing in the fountains again, and yes Jackson is in his underware again! I was applying at Spa Viasage today, bc I am in cosmetology school and will need a good job doing hair! I thought I was going to get to shop at the Farmers Market today BUT... That obviously isn't happening! I rather be watching these silly kids anyways!

Sir Edward

This is Sir Edward, he is ridiculous. He is a miniature schnauzer chiuahuah mix, and he is Mr. Moody! He loves me and the family but no one else, he growls at everyone that walks through or even near our door, any advice on taming him would be fantastic!

Oh the life of a dog :)

This is my little old lady.

This is Brooklynn she is an old soul. I don't know what it is about this kid that is so funny, is it the old lady glasses? The fact that she CANNOT leave our house without hoarding every tiny thing she can possibly fit into her little grasp? Is it the striped sweater that's 3 times the size of her that she demands she has to wear? I don't know but I can tell you this, when she grows up I can bet that she will be just as vintage and yet modern as I am , but as I love to get rid of old things to make room for more, she will be a packrat and always be my little old lady baby.

Oh Beauty School!

Oh cosmetology school is so close! With two weeks until the start date of my classes, I am completely unprepared! My loan papers have yet to be mailed to me, the school won't accept my application until my loan goes through, etc.etc.etc... I am although in high spirits that everything will work out! I can't wait to let the creative side out of me! Like a wild thunderstorm I will be running through that campus with blurs of blue and pink colors flying everywhere! I can't wait for the day to add cosmetology license to my already existing aesthetics license! I love working in a spa, but there's only so much organic one person can handle! Hahaha! I can't wait to alternate between being quite and relaxing to being a wild hair fixing maniac!

On an alternate note the kiddies and myself along with my bestie Julia and her kids will be headed down to Fort kid tomorrow evening for a picnic dinner! I can't wait to show you guys some pictures. If you're not from here then you can't comprehend how fantabulous Fort kid is! A bunch of volunteers got together and built a huge fort out of wood, it's so big and there are hidden passages and little places to hind, it is a childhood wonderland! See you guys tomorrow!

Peace Jessi

My kids in Market Square Fountains!

Just a quick pic of the kiddies in Market Square! We love it here and you can so tell!

Crazy few weeks!

This has been a few crazy weeks! My little girl turned 2 and we went down to Market Square and had lunch and then we let the kids run around in the fountains! It was so much fun, and there was a farmers market so we got to do some shopping as well. I happen to have a favorite restaurant in town, it's called Tomato Head! I don't know if you've heard of it but it is soooo awesome, they use local foods and alot of organic and vegan foods. If you go you've got to try the "oh boy sandwich" oor their tuna sandwich they are both really sweet!

I wonder if any of you have a hidden talent? You do? Well share it with me and I'll share mine! It's finding four leaf clovers! You probably think that's lame but let me tell you! I can find a four leaf clover in any clover patch! It's true! I found 6 in about 2 mins, seriously! It kinda freaks my husband out a little, but I keep thinking that we will win the lottery one day! Hahaha it may not be a super power but it's pretty cool in my book :)

And on a last note, some of you know that I am an esthetician and I work in a spa in Pigeon Foreg and I love it! Now I will be going to school for cosmetology in the next few weeks, I will be attending tennessee School of Beauty, any of you go there? I will keep posted all of the hairstyles and cuts that I will be accompishing! Keep up with the blog bc I will be running specials as soon as I get out there in the world of hair care in Knoxville, TN!

Peace and Love <3 Jessi

My Brooklynn will be 2 tomorrow!

Here is a picture of my little girl wearing her favorite accessory, the tutu! Tomorrow will be her birthday OMgosh crazy stuff! And what a sad day for me! My sweet baby girl will be 2 yrs old tomorrow, time flies by and I have decided to go part time at work .I'm so super excited about it. I can't wait to sleep in with my little lovies! Well, I got her some of the cutest stuff for her birthday this year, she's really girly so I got her a little pink back sack, that sinches at the top, and it has her name embroidered across the top of it in lime green which is so cute! Then I got her a lunch tote that's kinda retro looking of course ;) and she got some of the prettiest dresses, and of course some toy story stuff thrown in there.

Whoa! Check out these freaking awesome shoes I just made!

I just bought a shoe pattern online and made some sweet shoes! The black pair is the "pre" or first pair and the second green ones are the actual shoes made out of canvas and burlap with a vinyl sole! Love them, I don't know if I enjoyed them enough to sell them though. Maybe if the kids shoes are easier to make I'll sell them in a little store in the old city or market square! That would be pretty sweet!
I've wore them to work for two days and I've had no problems yet, yay!

Also on a side note the bus fund is going pretty awesome! I'm still searching for the right bus and I've found a few in surrounding cities, but they just haven't been the right bus for me :P I'm still holding out for the perfect "Jessi" bus! Ha ha I may be waiting a long time.

The search is on for a VW bus!

So I would love to fulfill my dreams of owning a vw bus, be it camper or not at this point, and I am starting to save up for said bus and I'm going to take you guys along with me! I hope it's a fun ride, I looked at a bus this week, but it just needed to much done to it even though it was running and the motor was perfect, but needed some body work done to it, and I just don't have that amount of time, with the 2 kids and I am currently working 5 days a week still. Sooo, with that said I will be looking on thesamba.com and on craigslist, which is where I found this weeks bus :) Also if any of you know where a perfect bus is that someone would like to give me a deal on just throw me a wink will ya ;) Haha!

new blanket and some pyrex references!

I have decided to get Brooklynn a twin bed for her birthday that is coming up in a few weeks. I found an old bed on craigslist and it was only $5! It's real wood, but it was soooo ugly, with orangy brown paint and blue brush strokes all over it, like someone had tried to paint it with very little paint. So I sanded it and repainted it a baby pink, and it is oh so cute a chic! Then I bought some vintage bed rails and painted them a sage green, so now all we need is the mattress! I also decided to make her a retro looking quilt with some owls on it. She's gonna love it! just look at the pics ;P

For the pyrex references: In Jay-z's song forever young there is a verse that says forever my name will be remembered and passed down from generations like pyrex pots! How flipping awesome is that!!! Hahaha. The second one is in the movie adventureland, at the very end when the two are in the apartment, when Kristen Stewart opens the cabinet there is a pink gooseberry mixing bowl in the cabinet!!! That is so super cool!!! Love it!

what Jackson did once upon a time!

A few months ago my husband had to watch our children all day by himself. Jackson was 3 and Brooklynn was still a baby. While I was at work Jackson decided it would be awesome if he could show his daddy that he could make a cup of milk all by his self! While Mike was watching Brooklynn, Jackson snuck off into the kitchen and opened the fridge and then grabbed a cup. Then he proceeded to open the milk and pour it into the cup as well as my entire kitchen! At this point Mike still has no idea whats going on and he is very confused when Jackson runs into the living room and says,"Ummm, Daddy just stay right here, don't go into the kitchen OK." So my husband starts to get up and Jackson is screaming and waving his hand," NOOOO daddy NOOOOO don't go!"
Mike said Jackson just went to the couch and laid down bc he known he was going to be in timeout. Mike proceeds to clean up the milyway and calls me and tells me whats going on. The next day as I'm getting cereal ready for breakfast, I pour Jackson and Brooklynns bowls then I get mine ready and start to pour the milk when all of the sudden it stops flowing. But the jug still feels heavy? Weird. So I look in the jug and to my amazement I find a bunch of paper towels! Paper towels you may ask? Well before Jackson ran to my husband he thought he could clean the mess up by himself, but after he used all of the towels up he didn't know where to put them so he stuffed them back down into the jug so we wouldn't find them and he wouldn't have to go to timeout! So funny, I wish I could have the imagination of a kid again!

some more pyrex thrift store finds.

Today at the thrift store I found some fantastic Pyrex pink flamingo colored plates and saucers, but at $5 a plate I had to pass them up. Maybe someday I will be like my great Pyrex inspiration Julia, she found an entire box of these plates at a church sale and paid $5 for the whole box! Now that's a steal, when I come across that special box just for me, I will let you know ;p I did however find the two clear 10oz Pyrex bowls I talked about in an earlier post, so it was a great day indeed! Yesterday I found a set of 8 Pyrex mugs with the woodland print on them for only $3. I can't wait to clean them up and display them in my kitchen. I am off on Monday and I will be recieving some other Pyrex items and I will show them to you as soon as I get them cleaned up! So be looking for my new post :)

Monday, June 28, 2010


So I bought some daisies for myself the other day, and when Jackson saw them he asked me if we were getting married. I said "I don't know are we?" Then he said,"yes and we will have a big party in the back yard and everyone will be invited. We will have balloons and cake too!" He was so super excited, and it makes me sad to think that he will be 4 yrs old tomorrow. So Happy Birthday Jackson! My little man is growing up!

On a seperate note my little girl is starting to drink out of a "big" cup! This is so exciting I'm pretty much over the whole sippy cup thing! wow to think of how many sippy cups we've gone through in the past 4yrs is crazy :)

And on the last note, I went to a little shop in town called Living Vintage on saturday. I found some really cool stuff, like the table pictured, and my husband works for 7up and I found this really old 7up can turned into a lamp (which may be a future present)! My boss called me and told me I could take the whole day off so I did a little shopping and found a really old wooden magazine rack at a yard sale. It had $4 on it but I only had $3 in cash, so I asked if she would take that and she said she would. I will take some pictures of it at a later time and show you how it looks all cleaned up and super spiffy! Hope you all have a fantastic night ;)

some pyrex bowls and vintage chairs

Well I had a nice little post about my morning and Jackson wanting bubble gum for breakfast, but Jackson was hitting the keyboard and hit backspace so... everything got deleted, and now I'm gonna show you guys some awesome pyrex bowls! I got these from a lady a couple of towns over, I got 4 for $20 and they have barely even been used so I thought it was a steal! Also I got two freaking awesome vintage chairs at a yardsale this past weekend, they look like they have hardly been used and the women said they've been in her basement for years. She had $5 for both seats and I asked if she would take any less and she said she would take $3 for both, so I snagged them! Now if you know the retro side of me... I was freaking excited!!!

Monday, June 21, 2010

my first...

Yay my first blog...finally :) I have been wanting to create a blog for sometime now, so this is really exciting for me! First off let me tell you about my kids, Jackson is my first, he will be 4 yrs old June 29th. And he has got to be the funniest kid I have ever met! I'm not saying that b/c he's mine, ask any of my friends! He's so curious about the world and he doesn't stop talking, or moving for that matter! Then I have Brooklynn, she will be 2 on Aug. 14th. She is the prettiest little thing, and oh sooo girly, I love it! She's going to be a huge talker also ;) I have this huge love for all things vintage, i have a pretty cool pyrex collection and some old vintage kitchen chairs, my husband got me a really cool light that hangs above my stove. It goes fantastic with my cat clock (you know the ones with moving eyes and tail?) Well I'm sure I will have plenty of time to show you guys everything! I'll be back later :) Peace
