so i attempted this hairstyle for church on sunday. i only twirled up the top section of my hair, leaving the rest down. i threw a flower clip in the mix too. it was a fun change and took hardly any work whatsoever. via real simple. it took me back to high school when i loved to twirl my hair in little knots on a weekly basis.
b and me had benji and mama's day of fun today. (remember janice and joey's day of fun on friends?) it was sunny and beautiful which was a good excuse to hit the park, the zoo, visit papa and a new-to-us bakery downtown. then a long afternoon nap. it was dreamy.
i am trying out google chrome these days and am really liking it. another thing i really liked is hil's five minute jello. i doubt i'll ever make jello the real way again. if you are making jello the old way and waiting 10 hours for it to set up, you must give this a try. it's completely delicious. i feel like i could be sitting on my grandma's barstool while eating it up, like an old-fashioned delight. your kids will love it. be forewarned, hold the blender lid on real tight. we had a bit of a frothy cherry volcano.
we must have a cricket living right outside our window. i cannot see him, but i hear him all day and all night long. i feel like i live on walden pond.
weekend visitors are coming to stay, i can hardly wait. it has been a most compelling motivation to review my recipes, wipe out the fridge, and get the house all ship shape. dan always wonders aloud if our visitors will really inspect the microwave, but i just love a good excuse to get the house in order. am in the process of framing new photos and re-vamping the bookshelves. therefore right now the house is a disaster.
walmart photo lab is having a sale on 4x6 prints when ordered online. they are only 10 cents each. which is 3 cents less than costco, if you're counting. am trying to update the family photo album before benji turns two.
for those of you who inquired about my ribbon collection, i keep it stashed away in a large bottom drawer. get a peek of my office space right here. the ribbon situation is not as organized or color-coded as i would like, but it does the job. i talked about where i purchase ribbon right here. and if you live near an xpedx paper supply store, they sell perfect cellophane bags in a huge assortment of sizes. that place is what dreams are made of.
