Memorial Day weekend was fantastic. Laid back, at the beach or lounging in the back yard........no complaints!
I volunteered at Preschool last week and met their two new fish. Don't you love the names?
This is random......but funny enough I thought to share. I have more hair than about 22 people put together. I get it thinned out every time I get it cut. Never have had a hair dresser not remark on how ridiculously thick it is. My best plan of attack in order to straighten it is to wash it at night, go to sleep with it damp and let it somewhat flatten out on its own. Then, I wake and use a flat iron to straighten.
On Friday, I had to wash it mid-afternoon........dry it with a blow dryer......and then straighten. This is what it looks like using this method. Before I straighten it, of course.
It's not good, people.
Blake looked at me in his usual wonder of "What in the hell is she up to now?" and Carter was horrified. Exactly the reaction I was looking for.
Moving on......this pic is for Julie S. I bet she's been to Duke's a time or two.
It's officially summer here in Southern California! Lifeguards are out in full force.
Just discovered a little trivia about the town we live in. The little bungalow that Kelly McGillis's character lived in during the movie, Top Gun, is still in tact and sitting on private land, with its fate yet to be determined.
It's ocean view property........and is surrounded by a fence and all the houses around it have been torn down. We've driven by it dozens of times and always wondered what the significance of it was. Now we know.
And, just so YOU know, that sign has not been up there for long. We're not that stupid.
Pretty day. Love these colorful umbrellas.
Carter brought a friend. He fit right in with this bunch.
Davidges came over for a Memorial Day cookout. Lainey was in love, as always, with Ainsley.
Me, too. :)
Lamb shanks, spicy Louisiana sausage and dogs for the kids.
Mike and Blake.
Kids kept buy in the pool and water table.
It was a good night with great friends!
I have a new obsession. Weboo shoes. Already got these for Jack. Won the pink puffer variety for Laine on Ebay. I've never made a bid on Ebay before. That's how much I love these shoes. Well made, good for growing kids, and super unique. We'll be getting the dinosaur version for Jack this fall. Unicorns for Laine.
Been working on a few home improvements. Since we live in about 90 square feet total, space is limited. My desk has been overtaken by work, school stuff, medical records, coupons, etc, etc. I finally created this communication center in the hall way. Two cork boards and two magnetic/dry erase boards and our family calendar. Feeling more organized already!
Off to run carpool, bake biscuits for a teacher breakfast in the morning, straighten the house and tackle 5,342 loads of laundry. I really need an assistant. Not a nanny. An assistant.......what was Kramer's intern's name? Kevin, I think. Someone like him might work perfectly for me.
Summer List coming soon!
