How was your weekend?
We didn’t do anything too exciting. The weather is still cold so we’re not able to take the baby and toddlers outside like we’d like. It’s a bummer, too, because it’s April and yet it feels like December! We even had a few snow showers last week. Thank goodness it didn’t stick.
Although, I know some of my friends who live in the east had a blast of snow. If we had a snowstorm in the spring, I’d be saying a few colorful words. Haha. I’d get over it, though, and probably use the snowy weather as a good excuse to stay home and binge watch my favorite TV shows and eat a lot of good food.
My Favorite TV Show Right Now
Speaking of binge-watching TV shows, right now Michala and I are hooked on the K-Drama Shopping King Louie. We’ve been streaming it on Hulu. (I hate the commercials, even though we pay a monthly fee for it.) I am hooked on this show, you guys!
It’s a romantic comedy about a young, wealthy man named Louie who is in an accident and has amnesia. He is also heir to his family’s company. Louie meets Bok-Shil, a young woman who is of the working class and she finds Louie wearing her younger brother’s clothes. Since Bok-Shil’s younger brother has gone missing, she believes Louie knows her brother. Bok-Shil ends up helping Louie and taking care of him in hopes Louie will help her find her brother.
Louie has a lot of lavish spending habits, a trait from his rich life, and Bok-Shil tries to teach Louie how to be more responsible and find joy in living a simple life. Louis ends up changing and the two fall in love. There are, of course, a lot of twists and turns in the storyline which also makes the show very interesting. There are sixteen episodes on the show and we are on episode 12. I definitely recommend adding Shopping King Louie to your watch list!
Update on Unemployment
I’ve had a few people send me messages to offer words of encouragement about Travis’ job loss. Everyone has been very kind in offering advice and encouraging us during a time of uncertainty. It has been stressful, to say the least, but I think we have done a great job with remaining strong and working through it.
Travis hasn’t found full-time employment yet but he did get hired to work a temporary job assignment in Metro Detroit. We’re grateful for the opportunity even if it is for only a few weeks. These last six months have felt like we’re living a different life. I guess in a way we are living a different life because (1) we had a new baby, (2) we’re adjusting to being a family with five kids, and (3) Travis lost his job.
We’re learning many valuable lessons during this time and I have to say, I am starting to feel grateful for the experience. On a different day, I’ll have to write about why I feel grateful for going through a season of unemployment.
Rockin’ a New Hair Style
So I made a big change that was not planned AT ALL. I cut my hair. Eek! It was a spur of the moment decision that I must say I am glad I did. I am currently transitioning from wearing a headcovering to wearing my hair out and my hair was very dry from wearing the headcovering. (That’s another post I need to share in the future: my headcovering journey.)
I just couldn’t take my hair being so dry anymore so I asked Travis and Michala to help me cut my hair. I have my own set of hair scissors I use for cutting out knots when I detangle my hair. Hey, #naturalhairlife! I also just started cutting the toddlers’ hair because it saves us money.
I was really nervous about cutting my hair because I have been wanting to grow my hair out. I also have postpartum hair loss, unfortunately, so I felt cutting my hair would also help a little with the hair loss issue. I’m really happy with the way my hair turned out and I love my new hairstyle! I think it is just what I needed to make my hair healthy again and for a boost in my confidence.
What do you think?
Hope you have a blessed week!
