the weekend

this would have been a nice weekend to have an extra day of... anyone game for making monday a just-cause-we-want-another-break paid holiday? i even contemplated for a second to go to work in sweats in the a.m., but don't worry, stacey and clinton, i won't - unless you'll put me on your show and give me a 5,000 dollar shopping spree!!! :)
oh, and because i know you're all so interested in my hair adventures, i ended up dying it again. i decided to dye it because i'm going to be in that wedding soon and really can't keep up on the cost of maintanance to stay blonde - although i did like it. and even though i've been black before, this dark brown seemed pretty dark coming from being semi-blonde, but i like it. it should lighten up a bit though. Thanks for your "picky" help treen!
also, we took jorel for a dip in the hot tub and didn't have any swim diapers so he went in with his plastic one hahaha... it was so funny. what a goof
and one last thing... my dang camera's buttons are all sticking and i'm guessing it's because of the millions of pictures i've taken on it in the last couple years. i've taken pretty good care of it, but oh how i would love to get this one (thanks a lot sis... haha jk it's super cool!) (
