Pre-Summer Fun

Today was HOT! It was about 85 give or take a few degrees! Too nice of a day to waste away inside with the air conditioning! I was watching my niece Hailey and decided it was a great day for swimming! I went to the store and got a cute little blow up pool and some swim diapers (for Hailey of course!) Once I got home, not thinking at the time about the fact that I have a little pump for such times as these, proceeded to blow up the pool myself! By the time I was done, my lips were dead! Oops! We had a lot of fun swimming (okay, mostly splashing around in a VERY little pool getting each other wet!) It was a great day! I love summer! I can't believe that just a few weeks ago it was snowing! Oh, boy!
Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of our swimming adventures :(

Where's the camera when you need it?

So for the last year and a half I have not had a full length mirror at my disposal. For most people it wouldn't really be a problem, and for me so far it had not! I had become creative in my ways to see the bottom 1/4 of my body. I would either run outside and look at my reflection in my window (which can only be done during the day and when the weather is good, I might add) or I would stand on my swirly and unstable office chair that is in my room. Well today, if you can imagine it, me in my skirt almost ready for church and I had to make sure the shoes went, so I stood up on the unstable chair in my heels. Decided that they did indeed look fine with my outfit and proceeded to jump off the chair (not a good idea in heels) as I got my momentum up to jump, the chair flew out from underneath me and WAM! I face plant in on my floor and somehow ended up with a bruise on my knee! My only regret is wasn't caught on tape! Moral of the story... don't try to jump off a swirly chair in heels!

Hailey Bug

My niece Hailey is one of the cutest kids! She can be really shy sometimes but when it's just us hanging out.... man she is cheesy! I love her to death! Almost makes me want one of my own.... almost! You can't tell from the front, but I actually put two little pig-tails in her hair in the back! Boy was that tricky!
