Just chillin'

I've been taking a little break this weekend, from blogging/scrapping/cleaning, etc. We had such a wonderful weekend together. Friday we bought J some summer toys- a baby pool and a sand table. We also got him a Wall-E toy, and he loves it. He was so excited about it Friday night that he spent the better part of the evening falling asleep talking to it. I know money can't buy happiness, but gosh it was close. :)

Saturday I got my hair cut. First time in a while. She took off 3 inches and I still can still pull it back in a ponytail. But it feels so much lighter and healthier. I couldn't understand a word the haircutting lady said, but she did a great job. Sometimes it's like living in a foreign country around here, I don't understand a word people are saying (they talk in their native language, not English), and I'm afraid to drink the water. Of course, I felt this way when I lived in rural NC too.
I also got some summer clothes with a gift certificate at LL Bean. I love their shorts and tops. I still have my bathing suit from last year. I've lost some weight since then, I hope it fits better but I suspect that I probably just lost, um mass from chest, so the top will be down to my naval, which will be extremely helpful to distract the eye from my hips. :)
I cleaned up the bedrooms this am, and J and I are about to head outside. I was editing some photos. I'm not sure whether or not I like the vignette on this photo. What do you think? I feel myself being pulled back to some black and white photos lately. I seem to have gotten into scrapping only color photos, and I'm ready for a change. Or at least to scrap both. Is it really a Monday? Until tomorrow.

I like the vignette, actually you did such a good job that I didn't notice at first (which is a good thing!). Have a great day!

I like the photo, and the vignette on it. Glad Wall-E can be a happiness bringing toy! Always good to have a few of those around.

Hey girl! Thanks for the lemonade award! I'll try to get that on my blog sometime soon here! And thanks for your sweet comments about my KOTC peeks, (even though I know you are kissing my b*tt now!) lol :P
The vignette looks cool! I've been doing that a lot too! You are so funny about your chest mass! Join the club there! Why the hell is that that we lose weight there first anyways! It's not just you!I'm sure you look great! And hope you guys are having a great weekend- no house hunting this weekend huh?
