Mommy Hair, Madness and Moving

I need two things:
A truckload of ibuprofen and about a 4 hour nap.
What at week!! 
I'm trying to remember to count my blessings and be thankful for everything that I
have..... like my health, my family, etc, etc, etc....
BUT, I do want Baby B's first birthday party to go smoothly.
It's been quite a week with the preparation for the
big event piled onto the fact that my child is sick AND my husband is sick.
AND I'm not feeling like a champ either.

Speaking of things piled ontop of things:
Here is what my nest of hair has looked like recently:

Don't adjust your screens.  I DID actually take a mirror shot of myself.
Never say never, it seems...

The look I was aiming for was a chic topknot (a la Olivia Palermo featured above).
Instead, I end up looking more like I plopped my hair atop my head to wash my face, yet forgot to do something with my mop of hair before running out of the house with child in tow....
....Okay, so that IS really the truth.  Either way, it's easy, takes only a minute, and there are only two
little pieces holding up my VERY thick, long hair.
Goody Spin Pins rock!
I only need two of these to hold my hair up ALL day.
They also come in different shades to match your hair.
They're made by Goody so you can find them just about anywhere.
Speaking of drugstore finds, most people don't realize that I only wash my hair about twice a week. 
I understand it sounds disgusting, but in all reality, my hair is SO color treated and course, there's no way  I could wash and dry it everyday.  NO WAY!! 
A few years ago, a friend of mine and I started using this stuff:

I've tried plenty of brands, and this one is my all time favorite!
You can also find it at most drugstores.
One catch:
It's basically aerosol powder, so if you have dark hair, you really have to brush it through,
otherwise you end up with a white head.
I use it between trips to the salon to camoflauge my roots.

Now that I've surely grossed you out for the day.....

On to some other news:

We're Moving!!!

Not out of our house! To a brand new blog address!!

Take note!! 

I'll be back next week with some birthday party updates!

Have a great weekend!
