I'm an evil rotten mom.

Three cheers for having a kid that's such a good sport.

It's seriously very hot...and even warmer in the house. Let's just put it this way...the fan and air-conditioning aisle in Target tonight was completely empty. Nothing at all.

Despite that, I bribed my son into modeling the hat I made him. Yes. I'm knitting hats in the middle of summer! Actually I have a couple pretty involved projects going / planned so I whipped up this hat mostly because it was a quick knit-it gave me a sense of accomplishment without having to invest a lot of time into it. Most important though, is that he loves the hat. LOVES it. And he looks adorable in it.


Thought I'd put a picture of Cassie up, since some folks have been asking for Cassie pictures. She's a really small dog...about 6 pounds. Just to put that into perspective, my cat George, the car bed thief, is 13 pounds. Twice her size. I adore her though, and she, for some insane reason, seems to like me a lot too, and there's not much that I can do or anything that goes on around here that she doesn't stick her nose into.

She's handled the move and the new house like a champ. She's never more than a foot away from me for the most part, except for when she's trying hard to be a cat and chasing the kitties around. Like they're gonna fall for that. But it's sweet to see her want to play with them. It's not like those cats couldn't kick her ass or anything. I don't think she really cares about that. She just follows them around, anxiously wagging her tail with this pitiful "like me" look on her face.


We found a stand alone basketball hoop at a garage sale our neighbors were having the other day. I was pretty excited about that, because Sebastian seems to really enjoy hoop shooting, but the only hoop we've had is the one over his bedroom door. Gotta love garage sales!

Andrea was by yesterday, and managed to magically transform my blond hair back to a color that's closer to my natural one. I was astounded at how well the color turned out, because the last time I attempted something like that, I ended up with Elvira hair. That's why it's best once in a while to trust someone that's a professional with half a clue, instead of attempting stupid things with your own hair. She also cut it for me, so it's short again, which to be honest, I've kind of missed. And with the heat wave we've had, it couldn't have better timing. Then with a new haircut, I had to have new earrings. I mean, that's a law somewhere, right? And Andrea is like one stop shopping, because she was kind enough to bring me her Cookie Lee jewelry to roll around in and drool over. MAN is there EVER some cute stuff, and I think I need all of it. If anyone out there needs a haircut, color, or cute jewelry, lemme know and I'll hook you up. :)

Well, I'm going to cut this short tonight. We had Annie and Adrian over tonight, grilled burgers and hot dogs, and let all the kids loose on the slip-n-slide and the little pool in hopes that they'd be worn out enough to all go to bed at a decent hour. I think that this evil plan has backfired in our faces, because tonight, it is the parents who are yawning and crawling to the coffee pot, and the kids looked like they could have gone another few hours.

Pictures to come tomorrow. Have a good night!

I need color and jewelry. I know we already sort of discussed this, but I'm bringing it up again because I'm totally serious and a big nag :)
