No Swimming

Another gem from OKC. The sign reads "NO WADING, NO SWIMMING, NO CLIMBING"

There were kids taking laps around the fountain. That's an infection waiting to happen.

No Pets, Please

The sign says "The presences of animals of all types is prohibited on festival grounds." Guess that puppy can't read.

Here's a random picture of S and Sally.

This weekend a couple of friends and I are going to Oklahoma City for the Memorial Marathon (Relay). I'm running the first 10K then handing the timing chip off to rkyarns. In 2007, I ran the half-marathon at this race and it was amazing.

I will be running at 6:30am on Sunday so send me fast vibes.

Gudonya Too

My friend introduced me to the Gudonya etsy shop at Christmas with a gift of whipped shave cream. The smell is amazing and it really protects from razor burn. My favorite scent is Tahitian Vanilla-it's so sweet just like Sweet Tarts.

I have been happy with everything that I have ordered from this shop. But my all time favorite thing is the sMOOchy skin bar. This is the instructions from the website:

"Here's how it works.... You take a bath or shower as usual. When you're ready to step out, don't. Just step back out of the water. Rub your sMOOchy all over yourself, then rinse with water only. (If even the salt is too aggressive for you, simply rub the sMOOchy on your hands, then rub your hands on your body.) Step out and dry. That's it! It'll leave your body sMOOchably soft and lightly fragranced. You won't even need any lotion"

It is true, I don't even use lotion on my body after using the bar and the scent is heavenly.

I had a few friends over yesterday afternoon for a BeautiControl party. There were no mud masks like last time, but there was yummy food, make-up, and knitting.

Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Sunday was rainy and wet so we decided to delay the egg hunt. Yesterday we went to a friend's house and had a big egg hunt. The eggs were filled with candy, stickers, tattoos, and MONEY!

Mommy and me

For those of you who haven't seen it, I chopped 8.5 inches off my hair. Now I have to blow dry and straight irons it but I think it looks cute. In a couple of weeks, when I go in for a trim I might have her take it to a pixie which would require less work.

When I look at this picture I can see the a lot of my features in S's face. I think the lower half of are faces are very similar. The chin, cheeks and smile especially.

The BIG 3-1

Here's a little sample of the wonderful gifts I received for my birthday. There are many things that are not pictures because they are already being put to good use-such as cute socks from Lia and a great headband from Shelly. Thanks to everyone who has texted, e-mailed, or "raveled" me a happy birthday. My friends are the best.

Over the past couple of months I have been toying with idea of getting a Rigid Heddle Loom. I even tried one out on our last trip to Lawrence. But I have resisted.

Then this week, two things happened. First, I got the new issue of Living Crafts and they had a wonderful article about weaving with kids. Second, I found a well built kid's loom kit at a book fair.

On the left is my first attempt. I think this loom is enough for me right now but I think a Rigid Heddle might be on my Christmas list.

(Check this out. When I search for the Learn to Weave kit on Amazon it is selling for $114. That must be a mistake)
