If you haven't noticed, I have been fairly absent from blog posting lately. This is due to a number of things, including Blog Block, Revisionitis, Extreme Traveling, and Summer Slowdown - which involves markedly less hours online, and a much higher intake of fried pickles. Just kidding.
SF, on the other hand, has been upping her intake of blogohol and has been sweating blog posts out of her pores. Thanks SF!
I am now in Virginia, so I thought I'd tell you about a couple of things that have happened while here.
Are you ready?
I yanked out about a third of the eyelashes over my right eye. I kid you not, I was putting on my new Bare Escentuals mascara (which I ADORE) and with curler in hand, slipped somehow and accidentally pulled out a chunk of eyelashes!!! YOWZA! Panic ensued and an early a.m. phone call to Carrie (SF's and my hairdresser). She advised me to trash the old school eyelash curler and buy the new battery operated heated kind that acts like a mini curling iron. Do y'all use these? I can't wait to get home and get one!
Today we went to a local parade that was so cute and felt like we were in some random New England town. My favorite parade event was a group of 40 somethings (about 16 of them) that marched together - each carrying a non-matching lawn chair (like the above photo). Their leader would blow the whistle and they would either just open the chairs and sit for a minute, or they would wave their chairs into "the wave," or they might make some random formation or sing some silly song, but they were having a ball and were loads of fun to watch. It was adorable.
I will post pics soon (and NO - not of my bald eye).
HAPPY FOURTH Y'ALL!!!!!! I have to go now. Gotta help Dad fire up the grill.
