I got myself a new haircut.

I'm still getting used to it, I've never had my hair cut over my ears before!  
 Oh well, it's only hair, right?
I'm super glad I tried it ... if only to realize I need my bangs much longer and fuller or my sides longer or something a little less SO SHORT, I don't know. :-)

Family Time

Brandon took Friday off so we could spend the whole day together out and about doing whatever we darn-well wanted!  I love our family time together!

We went to see 'The Amazing Spiderman' movie ... in 3-D nonetheless!!!  I've never been much of a big fan of the superhero movies, but I enjoy seeing one when they're new out and Brandon can explain what I don't get.  There wasn't much to explain in this one because it's a re-boot - an actual term I learned from Brandon a few months back that we argued over because I thought he made the word up to explain that a movie was a re-make ... apparently there's a big difference people - big difference!  I conceded after googling it and calling my brother to confirm.  "TheGoogle" doesn't know everything does it?

We spent the rest of the day walking through just about any/and every store I wanted to.  I love that about Brandon - even though he doesn't much like shopping, he knows I LOVE it and is willing to wander through my favorites with me without one ounce of complaint!  Then sushi for dinner, Yum-o-licous!

It was a great night!  Have I mentioned how much I love our family time together?!? Sure do!

Oh!  By the way, I had to share these pics!  My nieces came over for a sleep-over last night and we brought some fishy-friends over for a sleep-over in Diesel's swimming pool too!  Diesel was so curious (the fish were quite big)!  I think at one point he was trying to figure out how to "play" with them like he does with his cat by pouncing at them - it was hilarious!

After a bit he was content to just watch them swim.  I think he thought he had a few new pets to keep!
Happy Summer!

On the 4th of July, Brandon and I thought we had figured out the best spot to watch fireworks - at the lake!  "Wouldn't that be awesome?" we thought... but we were wrong, very wrong!  I think that Brandon will ever lovingly refer to it as 'mosquito swamp' from now on!  We (me, Brandon, my parents, sister and her kids) only lasted about 5 minutes before the full can of bug spray was about empty - it didn't even phase the little buggers!  We went back to my parents' house and watched from a distance, no bugs, nice!
Love this one! Glad I could zoom in a bit on my camera!
It looks like a giant sparkler!

 Hope you had a happy (and safe) 4th of July!
