The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Here's our Saturday, the good, bad and ugly.

Good:
  • We practiced a hairstyle for Jadyn to wear as a flowergirl. The wedding isn't until July, but I need practice. It came out pretty decent. Used 31 pins in that girl's hair!

  • Jadyn made valentines. She often asks to do this. I didn't have the heart to tell her that people don't usually do this in April, so we did valentines.

  • Jadyn gave Mousie a bath. You may remember Mousie from a post last year. :)

  • My mom's on Facebook!
  • We went for a nice walk this evening.

  • Dad's giving Jadyn her bath and putting her to bed, even as we speak.


Bad:

  • Cut myself shaving. Enough said.

Ugly:

  • I made a really big mess in the kitchen.

    I dropped a bottle of Wite Out. Yes, I really did. It bounced from the counter to the floor. Lucky me, it was Quick Dry Wite Out. That stuff was drying before I even had the paper towels in hand.

    I quickly ran downstairs to the computer and Googled "cleaning up Wite Out." They suggested several things, one of which was citrus-based cleaners. Hooray! Goo Remover to the rescue! I was so relieved that it took all of it off. It was everywhere - on the counter, my hands, my address book, the cabinet, the sink. Took me a while to clean up, but I was just glad it worked.

Believe it or not, there was a smiley face in all of that mess. I'd already cleaned up around it when I snapped this photo. Oddly, I sort of wondered if he was laughing at me.

I hope your day was only good!

My mom is on Facebook, too! What is UP with that?

And I love the hair.

Well my mom isn't on Facebook...I don't think!

Love the smiley face and hair. So cute!

My mom is on facebook too, but it is my fault since I signed her up.

Jayden's hair looks darling! I am a bad hair mommy. Big bow, and I call it good. I can't do anything else.

And thankfully no white-out. But India broke a glass, and then a few hours later, Don broke one of my favorite polka-dot wine glasses. Both were big messes. UGH!

But at the end of the day, we heard froggies chirping, so it was a good day.

Love Jayden's hair! It looks perfect. I can't do hair to save my life. Gabby really wants to take dance but I keep thinking of the recital at the end of the year.. the one where their hair is all perfect and the makeup overdone. I'd be like.. does she REALLY have to wear that much makeup? and.. how am I supposed to do her hair like that??
I would have died over that white out! Good thing there was a nice smiley face at the end. LOL! Too cute!!

The hair is adorable! I could never do that.

Love the smiley face in the wite-out! What are the odds of that happening again?

My mom is on Facebook too! But, we helped her sign up. :-)

Kim said...

Love her hair!! How'd you get Jaydn to sit still that long?

Yikes with the wite-out! Glad it came off.

Laura,
First of all the hairdo is beautiful, looks like it was done by a professional! Seriously, Im impressed. Second of all you came and visited by blog and asked a question about our little boy and where he was adopted from. I have looked for your email address and cant find it. Im still pretty new to the whole blogging thing and am catching on little by little. I sure did want you to think that I had just blown you off. If you would like to email me your address that would be great. Tracy
