Happy Bday Blue Mhoon! (2 months ago)

How do you celebrate your brother turning 34?
.....Take him to Fast Lanes for a bowling suprise party, of course! I realize this was about 2.5 months ago, but I never said I was the most punctual person. Happy Birthday, Blue!

Woops, forgot to take a before photo.

Blue, bowling seriously. Only way he knows how.

My Dream CAN Come True!

So, I was googling and thought "hmm, I wonder if there really is such a thing as pickled lip gloss? because then my life would be complete" Guess what, there is and I can make it. It looks like it might be a little difficult to find some of the ingredients, but farely simple to make. Here is what I will attempt. Please let me know if you have suggestions on where to find any of the ingredients. Oh yeah, and I also came across this website, which might be one of the strangest blogs I've run into.

Dill Pickle Lip Gloss
Makes 4 1/3 oz. Roll-On Bottles

2 teaspoons Glycerin
1/4 ounce Grape Seed Oil
1/4 ounce Cucumber Seed Oil
10 drops Dill Seed Essential Oil
1 - 2 drops Liquid FD&C Blue #1
2 - 4 drops Liquid FD&C Yellow #5

In a small paper cup, mix the Glycerin and Liquid Dyes together, to create a lovely shade of green. In a second cup, mix together the Grapeseed Oil, Cucumber Seed Oil, and Dill Seed Essential Oils. Carefully Pour the Glycerin Mixture evenly between four 1/3 oz. Roll-On Bottles. Next, pour the Oil mixture between the four bottles. Cap the bottles, then shake well. The mixture inside the bottles will separate, creating a lovely, two layered appearance.

easter-egg-hunt-Race '09

So, Blue and I are 34 and 27 respectively, and our mother STILL hides Easter eggs for us to hunt. Through the years it has evolved into more of a contest/RACE, due to our competitive nature. I honestly couldn't tell you when or why the started (more like "never ended"); but it's AWESOME! I highly recommend it if you think you are on the verge of getting old and boring. Happy Spring!

Well today is my last day of "vacation". I had a blast the last 2 1/2 weeks. Got to see some awesome basketball (go hogs!), hung out with the greatest friends I could ask for, drank lots of wine, wii'd, had tamale's, had Christmas, New Years, saw my family, and chilled with jay. Here are a few pics of the last few weeks. Back to real life tomorrow.
