High/Low Linky with A First For Everything

When I first began to think about this post, I was thinking that I didn't have much to talk about for this week.  But as the day went by, I grew more excited to link up and share.  So here's a link up with Julie from A First For Everything:
I'm going to start with my low since it is so fresh on my heart and nothing else seems so low right now.
We just got back from NM.  I had to leave my mommy.  And that was SUPER hard because we were there for my beautiful grandmother's funeral.  It was a perfect celebration of her life and so nice to see all of my family.  I have the gift of so many amazing memories with her.  While there, my hubby and I got to take a quick picture of the beautiful scenery near her burial location.  
Today, I was able to get into my classroom to begin the task of setting it back up.  It was a relief to get in before the original date given to us and the AC was on for the 2nd half of the day.
So here's the before pic.  I will take some more to compare the process as I go.  
I forgot to snap a few more pics before I left today.  I was able to get most furniture in place and unpack a few things and put them into their places.  Hopeful to begin the decorating part soon!
Ok - to give a little background…I have had some really bad luck with finding a hairdresser in the various locations we have lived over the past several years.  My favorite one was in Dallas but when I moved to Florida, I attempted to find someone with as much skill and didn't have any luck.  I tried another one in California with no luck either.  So when we moved to Houston,  I decided to pass on the chances and just make the 3-4 hour trip up to Dallas and back to my original stylist every 3-5 months.  Today, I decided to try out a girl I found on FB.  I was so nervous, but am so glad I did!! {please look away from the grays}
I love it!  I wanted a subtle ombre and trim.  It came out so perfect!  No more driving to Dallas for this girl!
