About Us

Welcome to Hales Family Happenings!

I’m Ashleigh (a DUKE Blue Devil), and I live in North Carolina with my AMAZING hubby James (a DILLARD Bleu Devil) and our daughter Lauren. We met in 2007, were married in 2009, and 6 months later: Surprise! We were pregnant.

We’re both work full time as engineers (me – construction, him – computers) and are doing our best to raise a little girl who loves God and having random adventures as much as we do!

Come along with us as we try to balance being good parents to her, lovers to each other, friends to everyone else, engineers to anything and everything, and stewards of all God has blessed us with. :)

    I saw your post on natuarl hair. My Gabi who is 2.5 has thick hair aswell. I use ORGANIC Root Stimulator Olive Oil Cream Extra Rich for Dry, Thirsty Hair. It is wonderful. I put some on while it’s wet and like magic I am able to comb through. As for her scalp I use ISOPLUS Castor Oil Hair and Scalp Conditioner. As for shampoo’s currently I am using Shea Moisture Baby products. All seems to be going well!

    Hope this helps.

    I haven’t visited your page in a while…like the new set-up. I discovered you almost three years ago when I was researching hair products for my little girl. Since then, I have checked your site just to see how your little one is growing and learning how this thing called life works! :) I have a 4 year old myself and she loves a lot of the same things your little one loves. I am a guidance counselor by trade and a lover of all things creative by passion. This year I launched a unique line of accessories that encourage girls to be proud of themselves. I would love to send your little one an accessory kit. Out website is http://WWW.BUKNEEQUE.com.
    I look forward to hearing form you!
