(1)Awesome business idea alert! A studio or art shop that specializes in black and white photography named...
wait for it....
By the Power of GrayscaleI know!
(my girls and I came up with this incredible, fantastic idea earlier today while discussing their art projects. They didn't want me to tell you guys because you might "steal my idea". But I am just. That. Generous. You're welcome.)
Speaking of girls who are big and awesome, check it:
My 10 year old made these delish biscuity scone-ish things yesterday by herself, from scratch. And they were so good! And she cleaned up after herself! And the angels sang triumphantly!
All you ladies with only little kids and no big kids and a huge mess in your house and no one to cook or clean except YOU, take heart. Your day will come. It will come. Until then, just breathe into this paper bag....
(3)Speaking of good news, here's some news that's the opposite of good: I had a minor brain "event", got out the scissors, and proceeded to give myself huge-gantical Texas hair and now I look like Luanne from King of the Hill
This is not open for discussion, seeing as it is fact and all.
I didn't mind it so much yesterday when I first did it, probably because I was temporarily blind or something.
But then today I was trying to take my duck-face portrait (as advised by Mary Kate and Katie ) and I finally just got to scrolling through the photos and I'm all "SWEET BITS OF DONKEY DUNG, WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!?!
(4)Anyway, it also turns out that maybe I don't know how to do the duck face after all:
I tried, guys. I really tried!
(5)Definitely Cari needs to make me a Luanne/Dweej mashup photo in Photoshop, though, seeing as how I can't bring myself to share the other atrocities hidden so carefully on this here hard drive. No! Can't make me!
(6)Enough about me. Look at this baby.
She'll be 4 months old on Monday. FOUR! MONTHS! And we still don't know what color her eyes are.
Can you believe it? I thought not.
Completely unrelated, we've started shopping for a used commuter car for Tommy to take to work so he can leave me my van and then I can go places during the day and take my children to those places with me and not demand that other people come and pick them up and not go grocery shopping on Saturdays because who goes grocery shopping on Saturdays? EVERYONE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE REGION, APPARENTLY.
So if any of you have owned a Toyota Corolla/Honda Civic/Toyota Camry/Honda Accord/Hyundai Elantra, feel free to share your encouragement/warnings/horror stories/gas mileage averages in the combox/facebook post/twitter responses (I needed a third list of things. Sorry about that), okey dokey? Gracias!
