Bullet Time

  • Baby E is sick. I don't get it. No illness for the first 11 months of her life, then two colds in the past month and a half.
  • I finally got my hair cut after a NINE MONTH lapse and my hairdresser said I only needed a half inch off because my hair is in really good condition! She said to keep up whatever I've been doing (that would be: curling hair no more than twice a month, wearing a ponytail nearly every day, and rarely brushing). So. Stop brushing and curling your hair. It will apparently thank you.
  • I am making Oreo Truffles for Dh for Father's Day, and if you think those sound delicious, well, you're right. They are freaking good. I plan on secretly hiding half for myself.
  • I went shopping by myself on Saturday and had a lot of fun. I scored some cool stuff at the Banana outlet and wandered dreamily through Anthropologie.
  • I got pulled over on Tuesday for making an illegal U-turn and nearly crapped my pants in fear. Not of the cop, no no, fear of the massive and eternal lecture Dh would give me. Wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, said cop gave me a warning. And I have not said a word to Dh. Nor will I.
  • The women in my church stake put together a collection of writings - poetry, short stories, essays, etc. I accepted one on Sunday, thinking hopefully it would be so bad that I would get some good laughs. Well, none of it is really bad enough to laugh at, mostly just inspires turning the page and rolling one's eyes. Some of it though is really good. I am surprised and delighted.
  • Katie referred me to this blog. If you delight in life, love, and your child(ren), you should check it out. Also check out this cooking blog by the same author. It will make you salivate!!

I have never been pulled over before, and I would probably crap my pants in fear of the cop. Lucky for you it was only a warning.

I hope Baby E is better soon.

wow--you're so lucky that baby e hasn't been sick yet. i feel like we get sick every 6 weeks in our house.
i do hope she's feeling right as rain...STAT. it's just so heartbreaking to see them not feeling happy and well. :-(
and *phew* for the warning! i know it's bad, but i am absolutely petrified of being pulled over. which is why i drive like a grandma.

I hardly do anything to my hair--no conditioner, no nothing--and it's in great shape. As far as I can tell all the products are just for the people who damage their hair with other products.
