  1. LOVE the hair! perfect for winter:) I love red hair, but it never holds well in my hair (except it pulls red when i want to cover it!) I was told about this product called Kenra that works wonders on hair color! I love it, I highly recommend looking into it. The beauty supply in slo off of Los Osos Valley road carries it… hopefully you can get your hands on it!

  2. Hi! I love that you are a very real person (that happens to take a mean photo). Thanks for sharing sweet, simple joys.
    Happy Monday (or Tuesday night as it happens to be right now…)

  3. I love your red hair!!!
    Hello, Monday.
    Hello to no electricity, no hot water (what I miss the most) no heat and no trick or treaters.
    Surprise snowstorm on Saturday in Massachusetts knocked out power to our whole little town and others too.
    I have a massive pile of tree branches in my yard and don’t know when I’ll have power. But your blog makes me smile whenever I visit.
    Keep up the adorable posts. You have a very cute family.


  4. You look like a natural redhead with that fair skin! Rock it!

    Hello, Monday! Hello payday!! Sheesh! Hello to trick-or-treating with our little jack o’lantern and nurse tonight! Hello to a gorgeous fall day and a low-key week ahead {it’s about time!}.


  6. Hello to Lisa’s new red hair! You look great!

    And hello to a Monday/Halloween home with the kids, due to a teachers’ professional day. Nice way to start the week!

  7. When my oldest daughter was around 3 we took her to a bookstore for the first time. She had been to the library on a regular basis since birth. At the bookstore she “picked out” lots of books to checkout. We had to explain that these had to be bought. She was a little confused!

  8. Lisa, you are a bombshell with that red hair of yours. Congrats for being so brave – the results are amazing!!!!!

    Today is Monday so it’s Gratitude Journal time at my blog. Stop by if you have the time!

    Happy Halloween and I love the “boo”tiful pics!

  9. Lisa you are so adorable. I think you could dye your hair purple and totally pull it off with cool sophistication! Happy Halloween and candy eating to you all! I guess with three kiddos, I might be saying hello to calories!

  10. Hello to You lisa, and dinner with friends 🙂
    Love Love your new look!!! I would love to see how short is your hair cut from the back. 😉

  11. hello lisa! i’m saying hello to your beautiful blog. it’s my first time looking at it today- and i LOVE it!!! thanks for sharing your lovely photos! ps. your hair is gorgeous!

  12. I’m sorry – you do spend Halloween?

    It’s just a cultural thing or is it in contradiction with Christian faith?
