CURRENTLY / by Jenny Strebe






Sometimes it feels a little strange being a "hair blogger." I envy all the fabulous blogs out there where women really get to let the world into their lives. I feel like with me being a professional hairstylist that I need to be just that, and 99 percent of the time talk about hair. Maybe it's just the emotional side of me lately waiting for my baby boy to be born, but I'm sitting here reflecting on the past few weeks and really want to do a "Currently" post like my friend Danielle over at Sometimes Sweet does. I mean, I'm not just a hairstylist. I'm a women, a daughter, a mom, a friend, a wife and a happy fun loving person, who isn't always serious about hair all the time. So in honor of my pregnancy induced emotional hormones, I wanted to do a "Currently" post of my own, and let you all in the hairstylists life from home, not just from behind the chair.

Anxious for when my baby boy is going to enter the world. So excited to cuddle with him and be able to look into his sweet little eyes. But mostly excited to have my two year old daughter Magnolia lay her eyes on our sweet little boy for the first time. This will be my last baby, so it's exciting that this will be my lovely family for the rest of my life. This will be a moment I won't want to share with anyone, just my husband.  Selfish I know, but I'm really looking forward to it. Am the only one that has felt this way?

Nervous for the next couple of weeks at work, as I really could go into labor any day now. My daughter was 16 days late, so this time I have booked a few clients a couple of days past my due date. Call me crazy, but I'd rather be working huge, swollen and all, then be sitting around eating bon bon's.

Blessed that I'm having so much fun filming tutorials for my YouTube Channel. I'm so happy that I have the opportunity to work with such amazing people that are helping me grow and challenge myself. I have some really neat upcoming opportunities in the works and I can't wait to share with everyone.

Eating Tofutti cones like no other. I'm vegetarian not vegan, but these are the best frozen treats around. And for all you lactose intolerant peeps, these are 100 percent dairy free. I'm pretty sure I have gained a few extra baby lbs due to the fact that I can't stop eating these delicious treats. Have you tried these yet??

Sensitive on how people can be so insensitive on YouTube. So stupid I know, but maybe its the extra pregnancy hormones, but I feel like I'm giving away my tricks of the trade that I've learned over the past 13 years of doing hair for free, so if you don't like it, don't watch it. But I do want to kindly thank those who leave postive feedback and kind comments.

Wishing for long hair again so I can do some long haired tutorials on myself for everyone in the very near future. Last pregnancy my hair grew crazy fast, and this time it's growing so slow. Baby boy is sucking the life out of me, but of course totally worth it. Am the only one??

Excited to try some new hair products that a new up and coming hair product company called Indie Hair products sent me to give a try. I love me some new products to dabble in. If you haven't seen this product line yet, you will soon so make sure you check it out. 

Fortunate that I found Melanie at My Billie Designs who has been helping me with all sorts of projects that have to do with graphics, because I'm clueless and my brain just doesn't function that way. Make sure to check her out if you need any help with blog design or any other kind of graphic design. She's sooooo amazing!

Looking forward to being skinny again. I've gained 29lbs so far this pregnancy and have a couple more weeks to go. I know I'm in the healthy range of weight gain, but did you know I started filming my tutorials at 6 months pregnant? I just want to come back from my leave, back to my old self with tons of great energy to bring you some really great tutorials and not feel self conscious on my weight or pregnant self. Or let alone try to fit into fun clothes. <----- so hard!

Crazy for being almost 38 weeks (9  1/2 months)  pregnant and just getting back home from Prescott, AZ over the weekend. I kind of gambled going  2 hours away from home to go to my daughters little School camp, as it was in the middle of absolute now where, and baby boy is full term and come at anytime. But it was so worth seeing her have such an amazing time in nature. Luckily I've made it home still pregnant and safe. Although I'm a bit tired from sleeping on a crappy camp mattress. Enjoy a few pictures below.
