10 on 10

today i patched up a beloved stuffie that a certain dog mauled in broad daylight. i still have a large tear at the bottom to fix up. i thought we would have to call him frankenfrog, but i did an impressive job (considering my ability) and we can still just call him frog. every one was treated to hair cuts and either iced americanos or ice cream. no question as to which one i chose. a trip to the library proved frustrating, which is usually the norm in my case, but this time it wasn't because they didn't have the books i was looking for. no, it was because every bathroom was closed. who does that? would you not leave at least one bathroom open for your patrons? i'm still perplexed by this, but i digress . . .
we received some much needed rain. the rain made the chalk that was left in the driveway perfectly suitable for coloring bea's hair (once it was dried and combed it looked really cute). she has been wanting pink hair for some time now. she literally gasped when she saw herself in the mirror. i think she was pleased with the chalk-do. boyd was relieved we finally made it home, but annoyed that we took so long getting in the house. because like me at the library, he really needed to go. one of the neighbor kids peeked in on us. again. i'm beginning to wonder if she has a schedule made up for looking in our windows. i think i'm noticing a pattern.  the day came to a close with a bit of backyard hooping, but sadly my hooping skills aren't on par with my minimal sewing abilities, so that didn't last too long. i'll try again tomorrow.



 i bet you wouldn't mind brightening up your day a bit, right? then click over to carmen's blog and see what loveliness she has posted today before you do anything else! you'll be glad you did.

  3. I'm not sure what I love more: the tats on the woman cutting Matt's hair, your new 'do, or Bea with the pink streaks. And ditto on the shoes . . . amazingly awesome!

  4. Way too much cool in this post.
    No fair.
    Pink chalk-hair Bea is an idea I'm going to steal. But I need Bea, okay? Her hair is just right for that.
    YOU are adorable in a sexy mamma kind of way. Love that bokeh over your face.

    1. that rain was the perfect slow drizzle yesterday. we needed it, but it wasn't too much that we minded walking around and getting a little damp.

  5. Did Matt chop his hair? Was it short when I was there?! I stayed so drunk at your house, I honestly can't remember. LOL. My heart melts for Boyd <3 A day with you magical people wasn't enough.

    1. he did! this wasn't the trim though. is it horrible i can't remember if it was cut when you were here. it was such a whirlwind! i think it was, but maybe he had a hat on?

    1. he is really a sweet dog. and once he calms down he's going to be so good.
      also, my hair will not look like that until i go in for another cut. i can never recreate that look.
      those shoes would look super cute on you, just saying : )

    1. the girl that cuts my hair recommended doing that with the chalk! i was asking about a safe way to color bea's hair (well, just bits of it) and she said to try chalk. it lasted the whole day and washed out! the bonus was it didn't rub off on the furniture, too!

    1. i know i felt awful for henry. he was a champ and handled it well, but he wanted to watch me fix him. i guess to make sure i didn't botch it up.

      i request a portrait done by you. how's that? just the thought of getting us all in a self portrait makes my head hurt.

    1. journey's, maybe? on the clearance rack! if not there a similar store. i don't venture into the mall often, the stores all kind of blur together. they're vans, so i know you can find them online. get yourself some!
