Excitement!!

I got back from vacation to find out I had been chosen as a runner up in the swimsuit cover up contest!!! I am very excited! I never win anything, so this is an awesome feeling.

So, I will finally have a real dress form of my very own. I have been wanting one for so long, it hasn't sunk in yet that I will really be getting one. Oh yeah, here is the link to the announcement. My entry was the strawberry cover-up (from my last post).

I wish I had hung something behind it to hide my messy room. Apparently that didn't matter, but it bugs me. Oh well. Here are the detail pics of my other entry that I didn't include in my last post.






I expected my first post back from vacation to be about our vacation, but I had to share this exciting news. We had a great time at the beach, though. I regretfully didn't take any pictures until we went to the aquarium. I kept forgetting my camera, and honestly, sand got all over everything, so it's probably best I did forget it.

Becca-Lynn hasn't been to the beach since she was two and didn't remember it, and Meadow had never been, so I glad they got a chance to see it. The sad thing is, we only live 2 hours from the beach, so we should've been before now. The hotel cost are just too much for out budget though. We were very fortunate to be able to go this year. Becca-Lynn really loved it once she got over her initial fears, but Meadow wanted nothing to do with the water. The waves were really rough while we were there though, so it's probably a blessing she wasn't eager to get in the water.

My best friend, Brandy, and her boyfriend went too. It was really great to spend time with her. She moved 3 hours away a few years ago, and we don't get to see each other like we would like. We grew up two houses apart from each other, so the move was a big change. We still talk on the phone constantly though. In fact, she's about the only person I can stand to be on the phone with for more than about 5 minutes.

I am not a phone person. I don't even have a cell phone. Not because I'm cheap (which I am) but because I don't want people calling me all the time. It's hard enough to go to town with two kids without a phone ringing, and there ain't no way I'm gonna talk on one while I'm driving. I also think it's rude to be on a phone in a public place. I'm not that bothered when other people do it (to a point), I just can't bring myself to do it. I got way off track there, sorry. I have a tendency to ramble.

Hope every one is having a good weekend!
