Friday Friend...Meet Sarah

Meet Sarah...she is my hair stylist turned friend and everyone should have one. Who can say they went to birthing class with their hair stylist? I can! Sarah now cuts hair out of her bathroom on Wednesdays and she sits on her toilet (no...not going) and we catch up.

A friend of mine from high school was going to Calvin College and started going to a salon near there. My 3rd girl in a row at Design One had just left after having a baby and I was desperately looking for someone to cut my hair. I heard about Sarah and 7 years later here we are. Not only does she do a great job, but her prices are AmAzInG! I can never redo my hair the next day quite like she does after a cut, so don't hold that against her.

She is super funny and sarcastic and we have the same parenting philosophies. Her oldest is 7 weeks younger than Tyler and they would have been only 2 weeks apart if Tyler hadn't come so early. Sarah went on to add one more to her brood in January and keeps urging me to catch up. Our husbands are a lot alike too, which gave us some awesome Mother's Day stories to chat about...

From Sarah:
I am honored and embarrassed all the the same time....don't really think people would care about my boring life:)
oh well, here it goes:

*Favorite food:
if i HAD to pick one i would say pizza, but spicy mexican would be a very close 2nd place

*childhood memory:
our family vacation to west virginia. We couldn't really afford lavish vacations, but my mom believed it was important to do something as a family every year. SO, that year we packed a tent and put all our bikes on a trailer behind my dad's pickup and drove there. The funniest/crazy part is it had enough room for 3 up front, so my parents had the kids take turns sitting in the bed of the truck (with a cap on) in recliner lawn chairs! (definitly wouldn't fly with state police these days!

*funny thing that happened this week:
My son came up to me and said, "I want boogers for supper, mommy!"

*Sleep with your mouth open or closed?
I sleep with my mouth closed.

*What you love most about your hubby?
I love my husbands sense of humor, and how he can make most people laugh.

*What in your life has gone a different direction than you thought at 16?
EVERYTHING in my life has gone a different direction than when i was 16! THANK YOU LORD!!!!!!!! One of those times you are thankful you don't get everything you ask for!

*Official name of your bathroom salon?
THe salon has an unofficial name of "Sarah's Bathroom Salon Emporiom" Given by her husband:)

*Are your toes painted right now?
My toes are painted, but barely.....i keep saying that i am going to get a pedicure, but it just doesn't seem to happen.

*Easiest part about 2 kids? Hardest?
easiest part of having 2 kids: hmmm....loving them... that's pretty easy, and the fact that they are STARTING to entertain each other. Hardest part is getting out of the house.

*Cake or ice cream?
Cake or ice cream is a trick question for me because they are both sweets.....anything sweet is a yes for me.

*Favorite tv show?
everybody loves raymond is my favorite....can't watch an episode without laughing out loud.

*Last book you read?
*last book: Maggie by Charles Martin. (one of the few books i can read more than once)

*Last thing you did for yourself.....
hmmm........i went shopping for the day and out with my girlfriends that night about a month ago. I guess it's time to do that again!:)
