I’m not a girl who likes to go out of my comfort zone and do things I’m not sure I’ll really succeed at, in fear that I will fail miserably at what I’m attempting to do. Let’s just add it to my list of other insecurities! But I’m honestly tired of playing it safe. Why not come out of my comfort zone and do things I might fail at. How will I ever know if I’m not go at something if I don’t try, right? Who cares what people will say or what people will think…? I just need to start doing it!
On Monday I was getting tired of how long Jayden’s hair was getting and just wanted to trim it up a bit. I’m no hair dresser, NEVER claimed to be one; but I though “what could it hurt?!” I questioned myself A LOT, was I really capable of giving my son a little trim? Was I going to have to get it fixed once I was finished? After the first snip, I couldn’t really think about it anymore… I had already begun to either make my son look like a freak or give him that nice cut I had envisioned in my head. (It always looks better in your head).
So we sat Jayden down (cookies in hand) and started trimming away. He did really well, I was so proud of him! I didn’t take too much off, just enough around the ears and some off the back and bangs. I did what I thought was best and honestly, I think it turned out pretty good! I’m sure if you looked SUPER close you would find problems with my cutting… but I can’t worry about that now.
Here is my big boy right after, cookies on face and all. It took A LOT of cookies ;)
My second attempts of trying something new were decorating my first cake after my decorating class last night. For those who don’t know, the hubby was amazing and bought me cake decorating classes for Christmas and I was super excited to do them.
Again, I’m no cake boss but I really had fun doing it! It was my first attempts at a rose and flowers. I also made the icing from scratch!
My family will get to enjoy it at family dinner tonight so that is why I wrote family on it.
Hope you all are having a fantastic week!
