Showing Off Again

Hello Everybodeeee!

Tuesdays are always interesting here. I work and sleep all weekend, catch up on a little more sleep on Monday, and Tuesday I feel as though I'm starting life all over again. Everything from last week? Clean slate. Totally gone.

In an effort to hold onto a little of my weekend, I want to show you my mommy's day gifts. And make you all horribly jealous by telling you that the Hunny and kids made grilled chicken fajitas for my dinner, just before I left for work. They were
divine! And my Mommy brought a cheesecake! Perfect! I'm drooling. Excuse me ...

Lookit what my mommy brought me for Mother's Day!


Isn't it beautiful? I squishy heart it something fierce. If you can't tell, it's a creamy orchid, fading into a dusty rose. GORGEOUS. Thank you, Mommy!

Hunny and the kids gave me the one and only thing I asked for (I'm getting better about asking for what I want - yay me!) - a good flat iron! No more borrowing Maybelline's! See it? It has curved plates! And temperature controls (up to 450 degrees!)! And an on/off switch! And the plates are tourmaline!


I haven't used it yet. shut up


You may now return to your regularly scheduled blog reading.

Until I write again ...

So that orchid is beautiful. 450 degrees? Now Flea I don't want to open your blog and see sizzled hair one of these days. Is that legal.....450 degrees?

That orchid is beautiful. And, why would you want to cook your hair at 450 degrees? Wouldn't that, like, disintegrate your hair? But what do I know. Really. Now I want some pictures!

What a lovely day you had! Well deserved!

Just remember that the higher settings are for very strong hair with large shaft diameter. The average hair shaft should not be taken up to 450. Just sayin'

YOUR mommy gave you a prezzie for Mudder's Dayz? How cool.

And that flat iron, awesome but be very careful of the temp ... not just your hairs, but yer fingers too!

I love my flat iron too, but I don't use it nearly often enough. I won't tell if you won't.

Your orchid is gorgeous! I'm glad it went to your house instead of mine. If if found it's way here to the Black Thumb of Death it would have no choice but to curl up and die on the spot in self-defense!

But, you are now part of my regularly scheduled blog reading....

Lovely orchid! And, am happy if you're happy to have a hair iron. Such a device is beyond my comprehension as my hair is pretty much flat and straight as a stick anyway. I have a daughter with a head of curly hair (lucky, lucky) and she sometimes straightens it....it takes her an hour to do and then she looks like an entirely different person.

I need to search your blog to find out where you are employed on the weekends.

What a gorgeous orchid! And now I want fajitas ...

Ooh, orchids!

The flowers are beautiful. Happy Mother's day!

I ran over to see if you'd posted your own mini pictures and was disappointed :)

Though I do flip over orchids . . .

Glad you had a good Mother's Day. I guess I really had some catching up to do.
