Pinkalicious Fauxhawks

In honor of summer vacation, I took the boys to get haircuts this week, and they both choose to get Fauxhawks. What is a fauxhawk, you might ask? Well, it's not as dramatic as a mohawk, that's for sure.

Both boys had long, shaggy hair, which I liked, but it fun to do something different.

Here's Remy's before picture:

And, here's Remy's AFTER picture:

I can see his beautiful eyes again!!

Here's Donny's BEFORE picture:

And here's his AFTER picture. Once again, those eyes, I knew he had some, I just hadn't seen them in a while:

Now, on a totally unrelated subject...I participated in a Pinkalicious Swap sponsored by Tangee at A Sparkly Messy Life.

I sent a gift to my swap partner and she sent a gift to me. Here's what Cynthia at sent me:

A very cool bag, pink nail polish and make-up, a yummy smelling candle, a pink bath scrub, great smelling cherry almond wash and some chocolate bars, and a pink bandana! Perfect!
And, here I am modeling my new pedicure and the pink beaded anklets I also received in the package. Cute stuff!!

Some great stuff along the PINK ALICIOUS theme! It was fun to receive something exciting in the mail. Thanks, Cynthia, for the package and thanks, Tangee, for the swap hostessing!

You do a Goddess proud!

I am sooooo behind in the manicure/pedicure department. Dang. I do them myself so I guess I better get working on that!
I'm lovin' your anklets! I have people asking for them but there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day....

Very cute fauxhawks! School ends next week for mine but he's already asking to get his hair cut with the hot streak we had this past week.

Oh, a pedicure. THAT is what I need.

You got mail. How fun was that? It has been ages since we got a real package. ;)

Love the fauxhawks! They look so proud. And that swap looks awesome! If i thought i could have got my druthers together, i would have participated. Maybe next time. Hopefully the mailman will be delivering another great box to you today! (or it might come tomorrow, depending on how slow the mail service is running these days...)

Hi ;) Thanks for stopping by my spot!
If the Hubs gets the position it'll be in Odessa. Are you anywhere near there? Not sure if we'll LIVE there, but obviously it'd be close...

Crystal Chick - You should make anklets!! I'd totally buy some of your beautiful anklets if you made them. :o) (I normally do my own toes also, it ain't pretty, but once a year or so I get the real pedicure and it was NICE)

Oh Mommy - I had a MAN do my pedicure. I had no idea men did that. I was so surprised, but he did a great job.

I Beati - It is fun to be a little wild with the hair and do fun summer things. I'm lovin it! I just bought some PURPLE nail polish that will end up on my toes soon...

Angie - I can't wait to receive another awesome package!! YAY!

Muffy - Thanks for coming by my place! It was a real treat to receive a fun package...instead of BILLS in the mail.

One Wired Woman - Thanks for coming by!! The boys did need a little shorter haircuts for this Texas heat. I thought about cutting my hair short too...but if I leave it long it goes up better in pony tails and such.

Shanna - Thanks for coming by!! Odessa isn't close to me, it's more west Texas. I don't know much about it...but it might not be the best part of Texas. lol

Look at your box of pink! I haven't gotten mine yet. I am going to get a pedicure tomorrow - gotta have pretty toes before I head to Texas. And I don't do my own. They would look a mess.

And the boys' haircuts look great! Love Remy's expression in his after photo. Too cute!

Kellan said...

Cute boys - I love their new hair cuts - very cool!

Have a good day - Kellan

Melissa said...

what a fun idea! How cute to send things to each other. Hope you enjoyed it all.

Jennifer S said...

Love the summer haircuts.

Great stuff in that package! What a fun idea.

Rhea said...

Kat - I bet you can't wait to receive your Pinkalicious swap gift! Let me know when you do.

Kellan - Nice to meet you! Thanks for the sweet compliments. The boys are getting lots of stares and comments on their new hairstyles. And they love it!

Motherhood for Dummies - I had never done a swap before, but I'm glad I joined because it was fun.

Jennifer H - I couldn't stand the thought of the boys going for buzz cuts, I just love their hair, so this was a nice compromise. :o)

Heather said...
