Hi everybody! First order of business, I got my hair trimmed.....yes, again! I took in a picture of this girls hair and the hairdresser gave me the cut and wet it looks almost the same.....
.....but once again I am reminded of the thickness of my hair. Mine, when dry, will never lay close and wavy to my head like that. I love it though! It only took an hour for it to air dry this morning, yeah!
Why am I wearing pants in the summer when skirts are so much cooler and much more summery looking? I'll let you in on a little secret.....it's only when I wear pants that I'm a lazy butt and skip shaving my legs....TMI?....maybe..... but am I pretty sure that most of you do the same thing?.....Yep!.....You know who you are! ;-)
Button Down: ShopKo
Cami: Jc Penny (one of their cheap tanks turned around back wards)
Jeans: Venezia via eBay
Necklace: B-day gift.
As soon as I saw this necklace at Hallmark I fell in love with it. It's like a locket and they have tons of the little charms you can pick out to out inside! =)
An awesome RAINBOW (check out the link) that showed up two days in a row!
I noticed it showed up better when I was wearing my sunglasses, so I put them in front of the camera lens and took a few pics! My own make shift lens filter, I felt so Magyver-y!
My Dad is letting me play with his DSLR and it's making my little point and shoot seem so very sad and slow by comparison!! I love the manual focus for macro shots!
And lastly my B-day breakfast were the worlds BEST doughnuts! They are just normal raised doughnuts, but the pink frosting is berry flavored or something, it's sooooo yummy and they usually only put it on the cake doughnuts, which I don't like. So, one year I asked if we could order these special and even though every time we get them the lady grumbles, I still make my family get them for me! What can I say? They really are the best! =)

This. Guy. Is. Awesome!
He is one person whose videos I will faithfully check up on to see if he's done anything new. He can do the -I'm a guy but I'm singing like a girl- thing with out the usual creepiness factor. Go ahead and watch, you won't be sorry! He works as an animator for Disney and that only adds to the coolness factor. =)

....or in other words, why I haven't been posting! ;-)
~It's VBS this week and I am in charge of rewriting the skits, getting rehearsals together and acting in them. While it's not very much work during VBS for me this year, the time leading up to it was way busier the normal and I am gone fore 4-5 hours in the afternoon. Cowabunga dudes!
~We're getting my little sis(Maybe not so little now that she's 18!) off to Latvia for 6 weeks to intern at a summer camp. GO BECCA!!!
~There were two b-days. Becca turned 18 and I turned 25!
I went to my new favorite restaurant and had the best dessert EVER. Creme brulee cheesecake, yum! Some one had the genius ideas to combine my two favorite desserts, so I would no longer have to choose between them, thank you Greg's Grill!!
I also got to try Ice Wine, which I have been fascinated by since I heard about 5 years ago. It lived up to my expectations which was a pretty tall order there folks!
~My Dad very kindly left his very nice DSLR camera for me to play with, but when I went to get the pics off of it, I failed! The memory card I found was HUGE and there is no slot on my computer the right size and I can't find a cable to that would work either. So, as soon as I get the pics off of that you'll get to see some awesome(hopefully) pics!
That's about it, hopefully after we get my sister off and VBS ends, things will calm down and I can start posting more regularly again!

Grace over at Puddles of Memories is hosting a blog party....I may be a few days late, but I'm going to try and keep up from now on!!
Today we are supposed to post a list of the books we are planning on reading this summer! I'm funny, I always feel the urge to reread some of my favorite books in the summer, so most of these I've read before, I'll let you know if it's a new one!
~The Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce
I love these books, I first read them when I was 11 and have been in love with Tamera's work ever since! These I reread every summer!
~Gone With the Wind and Scarlett
I hate Ashley and love Rhett. I know should act like Melanie, but there is a small part of me that soo wants to be Scarlett! The sequel was written by Alexandra Ripely and takes place mostly in Ireland. A definite must read for the Gone With the Wind fan. STAY away from the movie adaption of the sequel, it is garbage! =)
~Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow
I just got done reading this one, but will be reading again soon. It is a MUST read for anyone who worries, and who doesn't?? I devoured it the first time I read it and need some time to process before I go through it again. Hopefully I will find someone to do the bible study with me.....anyone interested? We could work something out over the internet I'm sure, weekly posts or something like that, let me know! =)
.....and that's all I officially have planned! I'm more of a, let's go to the library and browse spur of the moment kind of reader! I read tons in the summer (okay, I read tons all the time, but it seems like even more in the summer!) and am looking forward to revisiting my old summer faves!
Oh! I will also be rereading/retyping the books I need to edit and re-enter into my computer, so let's add...
Into the Woods (A modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast)
Refrigerate After Death (Book one in the Rolling Pin Murders)
...to that above list!
