Week In The Life: Friday

I’m doing daily posts this week as part of Week In The Life, a scrapbooking project spearheaded by Ali Edwards. Other days of the project can be found here: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday.

Friday was apparently makeover day. New couch and chairs, new haircut. Here’s the day in photos:

Starting off with the mundane. We’ve just switched to this brand of toothpaste, it has less junk in it than the usual brands. And I find the tube to be aesthetically pleasing. Stamps by Elise Joy.

Post-teaching mirror selfie. The “before” shot? Soon to have new hairs.

My dad came over to watch Malcolm so I could jaunt off to the salon for the afternoon.

With Matty, my hair guy for the past four years. He’s fantastic. I haven’t colored my hair for years, so this was fun!

Yessssssss! Out with the old couch. Sayonara stripes. Now the only stripes in our house will be (let’s be honest) all of mine and Malcolm’s clothes.

Solid color furniture makes the living room look so clean!

I’m not the only one who obsessively photographs everything!

It hasn’t been that long that we’ve been able to count on Malcolm going to sleep when he’s supposed to go to sleep. Friday nights are the only night where I don’t have to go to bed at a certain time because I don’t teach on Saturday mornings, and it’s really lovely to have a few hours where we’re not anticipating him waking up and having to be rocked or bounced back to sleep. We can go into the back yard and chill on the patio. We can go downstairs and watch an episode of Orange is the New Black. There were definitely some months when this relaxed Friday night seemed so far in the future I couldn’t even picture it. Parenthood, man. Everything changes all the time.
