New Summer Do's
















so these aren't the best pictures of the girls, as the sun was pretty bright and the wind was blowing but you can at least get an idea. we were at the park on memorial day when i saw a girl about kati's age with the cutest hair cut. just a simple bob, hair tucked behind her ear. i told terry i liked her hair. of course being the guy he is, he just shrugged his shoulders. well, later that night he said, "maybe we should cut kati's hair." so the next day we headed to the "plaid monkey", a cute hair salon for kids. this was kati's first major hair cut. she cut a good 4-5" off. the salon was really cute. they host b-day parties for girls also so there was a lot of glitter, boas and plastic high heal shoes. which caught lauren's eye! we were driving home from getting kati's hair cut and lauren says, "mom, i want to get my hair cut!" i told her she'd have to talk to her dad about that one! he has always wanted her to have long hair. i have mentioned cutting in several times and my idea was always shot down! but i knew if she told him she wanted it cut then she had a better chance of getting it cut. which only makes sense. it won't be long and we'll be in the 100's w/ 90% humidity! so we went back the next day and lauren got her hair cut! i'd like for kati's to be a little shorter but i was chicken!




i've been battling a cold for the past 2 weeks...i'm about tired of it! by mid day i'm feeling pretty good but at night when i go to bed i cough and cough and i wake up feeling like i've been hit by a mac truck! i keep telling myself one more day and then i'm going to the dr. ha ha i still haven't gone. i'm one of those people who has to be on their death bed before i go into the dr. i get that from my parents! not always a good trait to have, huh. but i don't feel like it's anything other than a cold. so i'll give it a few more days....LOL!




when we were in california on vacation we went to a very cool restaurant called "the slanted door". i guess it's a very well known (popular) restaurant. the food was awesome and the atmosphere was very neat. anyway, i asked for a diet coke (i'm not really picky but it always comes out as a diet coke vs. diet soda, although diet coke is my preference) the waiter brings me this bottle of diet soda. boylan diet soda. i had never heard of it before but it had a different kind of flavor to it. not like a diet coke. almost better. i can't even describe it but i've been craving one ever since!!!!!!!! terry and i went into a trader joes to pick up some goodies when we were there and i thought for sure they would have it. well i came across the diet creme soda which wasn't as good but not bad. i haven't found it here yet...darn it.




i thought i'd leave you with an old project i did way back when i was on the design team for scrapbook answers. i don't recall what issue it was in but i used a light switch plate cover as my album cover....


have a great weekend!

Looks like a very cool hair salon for kids, how fun! I needed a cute little chair like that when I was struggling to cut little kid's hair! Their haircuts are so cute, make their hair look thicker. You will like it a lot more too, especially when having to comb it. Cute project too! Chat with you soon!

Love the haircuts Kori!!! I bet your your girls love it in this heat. I went and got a pedicure today and it was so nice but just being out in the heat a little bit just killed me. The humidity......ahhhhhh it is so hot! I love the light switch cover! What a cute idea. Have a great weekend.

The girls look adorable! Mine are both growing theirs out, and they look pretty scruffy. lol

I love the little switchplate book. Very cute.

I love your lightswitch album... I might have to scraplift that one! I'm re-doing my place right now and have partially painted it. I took the old light switch covers off in order to replace them...what a great use for an old one.
