Our 7 year wedding anniversary

I can't believe that we've been married for 7 years today. We took a cruise to Bermuda. The weather was awesome.
This was the 1st night on the ship. I drank a bit too much that night (no one told me that the drinks we're stronger on cruises. Don't drink martinis too much anymore).

 Beautiful day.

We didn't have much of a honeymoon since we had friends & family with us on the cruise. We hope to go back someday & have our real honeymoon. We did go to NYC for a few days after we got back. So much fun.

Memorial day parade

Tara was in the Memorial day parade yesterday with her Daisy troop. Her 1st parade. She had so much fun. 1 of the mom's made an awesome banner (she's a Stampin' up lady). I don't want to post it because it has our town name & the troop # on it.

The weather has been horrible here the past week. Rainy & cool. The sun finally came out today. Tomorrow is suppose to hit 72 & be sunny. It does not feel like Summer. By the end of the week it will be close to 90 degrees. I'm getting excited for our Summer trips & day trips. So much going on the next few weekends, so the day trips will be on hold. Lots of fun things coming up in the next few weeks.

I was thinking today about my fave holidays:

1. My birthday (I know it's not a holiday for everyone, but it is for me. I never worked on my b-day & we always go away on vacay every year. So it is like a holiday for us).
2. 4th of July. Something about 4th of July is just magical to me.
3. Memorial Day weekend.

date night

Today we went on a date night to Cheesecake factory. I love their food, hubs doesn't. He found a blade in his food about 6 years ago. We had a 40 min wait, so he went to the food court & had Indian food. He did have Cheesecake with me. I got Hershey choc cheesecake. It was so good. Really rich & a huge peace.So I have leftovers.

Yummy Jw's pink lemonade

Nail Files. Week # 72

Today I'm wearing DelSol~Calypso (pink) & Maybelline color show~Boho gold. Not loving them together. I was at the hair salon last week & the stylest had on pink & gold on the same nails, but I liked hers a lot better. I think I'm going to change it tonight or tomorrow. I just bought Essie's Butler Please, so I might change it to that.

I love me who do you love

That sounds so weird, but my Mom use to say that to me whenever I asked her to take a photo of me when I was growing up. I always loved to pose. Now I do tons of selfies. Everyone now does that for Facebook, Instagram, Blogs etc... So I don't seem so strange anymore. haha. Someday when I have time I'll scan some of my older poser photos. Now Tara does the same thing with my ipod. I found these 2 last week.

When I'm bored I take photos of myself (& other things too). Usually when I'm waiting for the school bus. I took this 1 today. I never take photos of myself not smiling because I look really mean, but I did 1 today & it's not too bad. I guess I'm sort of smiling.

Happy Mother's Day

Today I got this cute frame from Tara for Mother's day. She made it at Daisies.

We went out to eat with Anthony's parents. Now I'm getting ready to scrapbook.

Hair cut day

Today all 3 of us in our family had our hair trimmed. 1st we went to Snipits & had Tara's hair trimmed. The girl straightened her hair. It looked so pretty. She's never had her hair straightened. I've thought of straightening it myself for her, but I'm so clumsy that I figure I'll burn her with the flat iron. We both have crazy thick frizzy hair that is always out of control. I straighten my own hair once-in-a-while, but I have carpal tunnel, so my hands always hurt after.

My Mother's day wish list

Alex & Ani Bracelet
Oragami Owl charms & holder

Stack ring with Tara's name on it. The stone fell out of the ring that I won.
Wristlet from 31

In reality I'm planning on getting a new tattoo this month. It will be a present combining Mother's Day & our anni on 5/30. But my birthday is at the end of June, so I could still get any of these for my Birthday.
