Thank You Jesus it is Friday

Crazy Cass LIFE. 
I have been neglecting the bloglife. I love having this space for my writing and logging our life….. staying inspired and connecting with you……but, sometimes I get tired. I think it is the month 6 of winter syndrome. I need Spring. I don't want to space to be vent/crab fest…so I have been keeping my thoughts to myself…. :) 
All in All, many things to be thankful for.  This past week was busy at Tala and the homefront. Here are a few pix. ( Linking up with Lauren and Jeanett

Donuts with my best friend. Why is it so hard to even make time for our favorite people………Much needed girlfriend time while our children ran around. 

Princess clothes and apple slices.

I am excited to have Easter later in the season this year- maybe it will be more Spring like. Painting eggs :) in swimsuits, of course.

Iced coffee and snow pants playing with sidewalk chalk. #mnprobs

A BEFORE pix of a corner I am working on (revamping) in my living room. I had Andy hang up this shelf for me! I want this to be a reading/coffee nook. 

 I am also working on Zion's bedroom right now. I made the tassel garland this week! Zakiyah has successfully slept in the pack-n-play for 4 nights! We are moving the girls into the same room to make room for a office/art studio/guest room ;) 

My ladies sharing a room! 

Spring nails. LOVE!

Happy Friday friends.

random: is there anything you want to see on this blog? any post ideas? fav things that I share…. I would love to hear your thoughts…… Please leave a comment below!

Lock Love Thursday…… Opps

Happy Lock Love Wednesday on THURSDAY! (insert- embarrassed face) I started LLW to keep this hairstylist accountable. It is so easy to get in a hair rut and not style my own hair! I have fun sharing with you anything Hair related! Today, is Before + After day! I even colored my hair this week!  Follow me on Instagram @ talahairlife #locklovewed and #locklovewednesday 

 I love Ashley's transformation! We went with a beautiful copper red and cleaned up her hair length a few inches overall!!!! She looks amazing!

I gave Kristin two colors in foils for a high dimension, yet subtle contrast. I used a high lift natural blonde and a copper/strawberry blonde! I gave her fun layers and curled her hair with a 1" curling iron!  

 It is spring now and I am embracing it! I don't care that there is snow on the ground! This lady is rocking neon and floral headbands. Nuff said. Happy LLT! :)

Can I go back?

pix the HUS took of me on our morning sunrise date! BLISS>

Sorry for my absence on the blog. Between being on vaca, getting back to the grind and facing the fact that our vacation is over……… I have been procrastinating writing and even looking at the pix. We had a lovely time on our florida trip, but this lady didn't want it to end. ;) 
Needed it.

We stayed with good friends of ours -- Cordie and Katherine -- who happen to be our old youth kids back in the day! They moved to Jax last summer and I was so excited to go and visit them. They love our kids and were so gracious to host us at their place for 7 days! It was perfect!!!!! 

Here are some of our favs off my canon. I will post more this week from our friend's cam and my phone……….

The weather didn't care that the Cass fam was visiting for first 4 days :( But we made the most of it! The first day we took the girls to see the ocean for the first time! Bundled up and made it quick! Coffee at Lillies to follow ;) 

When I travel, I like coffee + doughnuts! A lot of C + D! Dunkin. Krispy Kreme. BLISS. My ladies approved! 

With the rain and colder temps, we got creative. We shopped…… hit up a science museum……Andy/Cordie took Zion to The Lego movie…… we relaxed….. went for coffee…… and go carting……. It was fun! 

On our first nice day, we went to a local park for sunshine in the morning! AMEN! 

After the park we hit up the beach for the rest of the day!!!!! 

Zi collecting sea shells. 

Zakiyah getting used to the sand. 

Us 4,  before we went to dinner at Mellow Mushroom- our fav from the trip. Amaze pizza!!!! 

We went to Celebration Church on Sunday! It was amazing!!!!!! After church, we went to St. Augustine for the afternoon. I love that city! It is the first city in the U.S. Lots of tourists…..shopping, food and all…..

After we bummed around the city, we hit the beach for a few hours……

We spent 3 days at the beach. PERFECT!!!!! 

my fav laugh by my HUS. He cray cray.

post emerging from the sand! Jesus, is that you? HILAR.

pretty sure my ladies love the sand. the ocean. the sun…….. sigh.

Hus and my date for sunrise//americanos//apple + blueberry muffins. Perfect way to start your day. 

Thanks Cordie and Katherine for hosting us and making our trip amaze. Loved getting away and spending time in the sun.
