Lost and Found
I feel like I've gone on some kind of journey... and got really really lost! But, I've found my way back to the land of the living - I think. I believe that the culprit for my headaches was a new (read: cheaper) detergent we were using. It had a really strong smell and every time I would put on clothes that had been washed in it, the pounding would begin. Not fun... so, thank you for all the well wishes! Hopefully this won't happen again!
Now, onto some random summer fun! I gave the boys hair cuts the other day. It's always a struggle to get Little Bug's hair cut, but we managed in the end. Then, I gave Red a mohawk... as a joke. He loved it! He really wanted to keep it. And I? Well, I kinda thought it was fun too.

But Hubby wasn't as impressed... so I gave him a mohawk when I cut his hair too!He still loves me... and in the end I shaved off both mohawks. Maybe next time.
The kids have been spending a lot of time in the pool... aw... aren't they cute?Yeah... except, this is what it USUALLY looks like... Little Bug wasn't excited about the thought of having his picture taken that day...
As for my own summer fun, I was on the receiving end of some fun packages! I got one from Elasticwaistband Lady a few weeks ago! Inside the box there were fruit roll ups that the kids devoured...

two fun wash cloths....and flip flops for Baby Girl and myself!This picture does not convey the happiness felt by Baby Girl with these flip flops! She completely adores them!
Then, I participated in a "Favorite Things" swap hosted by Sariqd and she ended up with my name. First we have two pairs of earrings that she made herself, a canvas world market bag and then the silver pen with charms at the end that make a lovely jingling sound whenever I write.Then we have a sarong (I'm still trying to figure out how to tie it), some gel pens, note cards and a notebook!And last, but not least, this fun do rag! I used to wear these all the time, but lost my rags a long time ago! Can't wait to tie this one on!All in all I've been terribly spoiled, but I'm not complaining! Now, I'm off to read blogs. I'm a tad behind after more than a week of feeling cruddy! See ya around the blogosphere...

I am so glad you found the problem--sometimes cheaper doesn't mean better for you, does it. That is annoying though.

Love the mohawk--too cute.

With your heat I'm sure the kids loving being at the pool--probably the only way to get relief. Love the pictures.

Those flip flops are so cute.

What a fun favorite things swap.

What a fun day you had! I'm glad you found the headache solution. Scents can really do a whammy on me too.

I gave Kaden a temporary mohawk too. He thought it was AWESOME... I'll have to post pics. You've inspired me! :)

I don't know how I missed this post!!!

I'm glad your daughter loves the flip-flops! It wasn't easy convincing Melody to stop coveting them and trying to take them out of the box for herself.
