5 on Friday.

So this week.....well, it's been a week.
 
Since "work life" has been a bit weighty, I thought I'd just do a quick, light hearted post today on the blog.
 
:)
 
1. Matrix Oil Wonders.
 
AKA - The Mother Ship of Hair Products.
 
For the past few years, I've been using Marc Anthony Strictly Curls products from Ulta and have loved them.  I especially like the curl cream, and still use it.  But in February, I felt like my hair was getting kind of dry and brittle.  I figured part of it was that it was winter, and the air is just drier here then, but I thought maybe my product wasn't helping as much as it could too.

 
I'd gotten a sample of Matrix's Oil Wonders sent to me in my last Ulta order, and after using it I fell in love.  So I ordered a bottle of the Amazonian oil, and a set of the Oil Wonders shampoo & conditioner.
 
And I am hooked.

I love these products, and how healthy they make my hair feel.  They're a bit pricey, but I feel like they are totally worth it. And for the first time ever - I can do "second day hair" since the oil in the products leaves my hair bouncy and separated.
 
So, if you're looking for a new product - I'd recommend these!
 
2. House Update.
 
Things are moving along!

 
The drywall got textured last week, and was painted and primed this week.  Our contractor ordered our flooring (so excited for it!) and the shower guy was here last week to measure for the pan and walls.  We're also working on refinishing a set of cabinets that came out of another house here at the ranch, so that we can prime/paint them and use them in the mudroom.
 
Once floors go down, we can have our furniture set delivered for our bedroom and then I think things will really start to pull together then.  I can't wait!
 
Paint - Sherwin Williams "Accessible Beige" for the walls
 
Utility Sink - Costco

 


3. The Funhaver's Motel
 
I was in John Day this week for work meetings, and there was a bit of a mix up when it came to hotels.  The hotel we were supposed to stay at had rooms available, but not at the government rate so a few of us got to stay at The Dreamer's Motel instead.

We called it the {Funhaver's Motel}.


And while it might not have been 4 star, the owner was so sweet and accommodating and was truly thankful for our business.

I'd be happy to stay there again with that kind of service.


4. A Great Sign.

 
This sign was hanging in the restaurant we ate lunch at yesterday in John Day, and I thought it was hilarious.

Except I'm more of a Samoa girl myself.  ;)

 
5. Favorite pictures of the week.
 
Clint drove a team for Jack & Deana's wedding last week, and I loved taking pictures of him and the team!




A big thank you to Lee & Mary Jean for letting us borrow their team and surrey - we appreciate it!

Happy Friday!

Keep living the dream!
