Fancy Date Night


I'm sitting here waiting out a thunderstorm...

no umbrella in sight...

no desire to be wet from getting into the car...
waiting...

& wondering how my peeps are doing...

Daddy P & the kids went to the lake with my parents.
(hello, McFly...did you check the radar??)
*sigh*

I just don't love the lake...
maybe I've seen JAWS too many times, 

 I just don't like to be in water where I cannot 

a). see who is swimming with me
and 
b). go to the little potty when I need to tinkle

I'm more of a pool girl.

But, don't mistake me for some prissy city slicker...
I like to rough it sometimes (ha)

You can definitely call me a canoe fool...



it's hard to beat floating in 3-5 feet of 
icy crystal clear water 
on a day when it's 98 degrees, 
watching the fishes 
(& even an occasional snake) swimming by.


Big O heads to camp next weekend...
I'm hoping we can squeeze in a quick canoe trip before he goes...
my big boys fish, Miss O & Sneaky E swim & collect rocks, mama relaxes in the shade with a book (& a bag of Cheetos)...

ahem...

fun times! ;)


*********************************************

Last night Daddy P & I headed out on our annual "dressed up" date,
the fund raiser dinner for our Alma mater...

it was so horribly hot, we didn't get many pics.

Miss O was our un-official photographer...





she LOVES to get pictures of her mommy & daddy having fun. ;)

She's a pretty funny kid! 

This past week I decided to try a new nail thing,
it's call Shellac.
Have you tried this?

I'm on Day 5 now 
& my nails still look like they were just done:



except, I can tell they have grown just a pinch
(& my cuticles could use some oil).
(& that spray tan stain has still not worn of the inside of my palm)
I'll keep you posted on this stuff, 
so far I am loving it
(but I haven't tried to get it off).

Well, rain has stopped.
I'm hopping up to run some CHILD FREE errands...

I'll leave you with a shot of the kitten we've decided to keep,

"Bill Whiskers" ;)

If cuteness could kill...



Have a beautiful Sunday!
