Oh yes, that new picture of Bruno? Apparently he likes to eat paint. Silly puggie.

My height is correct; I'm a girl so that could be expected.
But given that same gender, you can correctly infer that I lied about my weight. The license was issued right after Chuck and I were married and I moved back to Maryland. I had put on weight (eating lots of Pop Tarts while driving across the country will do that to a girl) and hadn't been running. So I lied and put down a number I wanted my weight to be. However, after getting back to running and ditching the Pop Tarts (but now that Kellogg's has introduced the low-fat cinnamon and brown sugar maybe I can splurge once in a while), I dropped to about five pounds below my license weight! So then I was saddened that I hadn't lied more. Right now with the still-carried baby weight, the license weight is spot on.

Locks of Love?" Turns out that they don't accept highlighted hair. Cross off that, I guess. But leaving it as is is definitely out of the question. The longer it gets, the heavier it gets, and the heavier it gets, well, the more I look like a blonde Mortitia. It's bad. It's flat and lifeless. Blah.
Problem is: I hate it. Six days of seven it's in a pony tail. To spice up that pony tail, I may or may not put a braid in it. And if I'm feeling really saucy, I might add a headband. I think you see the problem.
I thought, "Hey, if it's this long, why not donate it to
But now what? Anyone who knows me well knows how much I detest doing my hair. I usually say that I hate showering. Turns out that I don't hate the act of showering by itself, rather, I hate all the stuff that follows the shower. Especially the hair part. So it gets ignored.
Anyone have any ideas? How short do you think my face can take? What about a body wave perm? Anyone have experience with this? Remember that it's me you're talking to. This means almost no product and no implements other than a round brush and a hair dryer. Do I even have any options? Where is Nick Arrojo when I need him???
P.S. Holy crap! Did anyone else see that to get a haircut from Nick is a cool $500??

We're definitely enjoying the Wii Fit. Thanks Mom and Dad for the early birthday present. We may not be any lighter when we see you next, but at least we're having fun!

However, I don't feel nearly as bad as I thought I would (or should) feel. I guess that's just confirmation that I'm doing this for the right reasons. (That shouldn't imply that those who do feel bad are doing it for the wrong reasons. Maybe there just is something wrong with me.) But because of these two ten-hour days we have a house. We can continue to save for Rhett's college education. We can save for retirement. None of these things was possible on Chuck's salary alone.
Don't let me fool you however. I looked at this picture about 30 times today. Wouldn't you?

I finished these cafe curtains for the kitchen when the tension rods finally arrived yesterday. (This picture doesn't show the second window.)
And the interesting branch above the cutout? I think it's one of those things you either love or hate. Obviously, I'm feeling the love.

But with a baby who is finally learning to take good naps (he's got 90 minutes already into this one!), I'm finally able to start getting some stuff done. Hallelujah. Just in time for me to go back to work...sigh.
Anyway, here's the handiwork of the weekend, when we should have been writing sacrament talks instead. The top color looks a little brighter than it is in real life, but it's pretty close. We're super pleased. We just hope Rhett is too. It is his room after all.
And during yesterday's morning nap, I was able to finish these. I am in LOVE with them and walk by them at least 40 times a day.
I am waiting for the rest of the hardware to arrive so that I can finish my cafe curtains for the two windows in the kitchen.
Viva la nap time!
