|Here are some more pics of the girls' night out.|
Brandi did not want to try on this hat with us, due to static. As you can see, peer pressure won out.
Trying to take a picture of all 4 of us, about 2 in the morning. Not our best looks, but fun.
Brandi and her birthday cupcake. Nicole trying to steal it.
Soaking our feet in the jacuzzi tub.
Last, a picture of the lovely lip gloss rings Tiffany brought.
Reminiscent of the following picture, taken at Nicole's wedding in
Now a picture of Luke, a la sweet potatoes:
|I had a fun time with my friends this weekend. We partied all night and
got some great deals in Branson the next day. We're awesome like that. |
Here is Luke and his first experience with chocolate.
"Hmmm...this looks interesting!"
"Mom, what IS this?"
The addiction begins.
And last, more fun with laundry:
|Overheard in my class today: "Man, I can't believe you would rather listen to "thump, thump" than some good bluegrass music!"|
At least one teenager in this country has his musical priorities straight!
|I used my new shopping bags today, and it felt pretty darn GOOD. I'm
not overly concerned about the environment, although I do think we
could all do something to cut down on waste. I'm more concerned with
all the plastic bags that end up in my pantry. What I got today fit in
two recycle bags, but if I hadn't have used them I would have ended up
with 10 Wal-Mart bags! No thanks. If I look uppity using them, so be it.|
Too bad the previous cashier wasn't working. I looked for her on
purpose, but she evidently couldn't handle my do-gooderness twice in
one week. (PS--Shirley, her name starts with S...)
|Luke and I went grocery shopping yesterday, at what is usually my
favorite store: Wal-Mart. For a month now I've noticed those reusable
grocery bags at the end of the cereal aisle and have thought to myself, "I'm at Wal-Mart so much that
I really should get some of those and cut down on the mountain of
plastic bags in my pantry." They only cost a dollar so yesterday I
decided to get some, and I bought 4. |
I get to the checkouts and I do my usual inspection of the cashiers
working. I used to work at Wal-Mart and I know some of them and if I'm
not in the mood to stand there and talk for half an hour and/or answer
personal questions, I just won't go through their line. Luke was
getting fussy so I had to pick the shortest line this time, and it just
so happens that the most hateful former co-worker of mine was working
it. (Shirley, you might know who I'm talking about!)
I didn't have that much stuff so I thought, "Okay, I'll just grin and
bear it." All was going well, despite hundreds (maybe millions) of
questions about Luke and how long it's been since I've worked at
Wal-Mart and what I'm doing now, blah, blah, blah. (Now back to the
reusable shopping bags...) She gets to the bags and says hatefully, of
course, "Oh. Did you want me to put all this in these?"
I told her no, because they were all tethered shut so you can't use
them until you buy them and cut the plastic ties off, but she continued
to be hateful and act like I was all uppity or something because I want to recycle.
WHATEVER!! I think it's going to take awhile for the whole "green"movement to catch on in MG.
