So today I cashed in on a birthday present to myself.  My lovely sister in law kindly agreed to do my hair!  She's a keeper!  I really like it, Frank however, well he will get used to it.  He prefers long hair (why do most guys prefer long hair?).

 I had Frank take a picture of the top of my head to show the highlights she did.  I'm about tickled pink with the Carmel or blonde color she put in there.  I really like it (next time, in a few years, I might have more put in there...I say a few years because that's how long it takes me to find a style I like). 
I went short because I'm tired of the long hair, but also because I want to be able to use my straightener and hot curlers.  With long hair it's just so annoying for an amature like me to deal with...there's just SO much hair!  Don't get me wrong, I like my hair but the length and thickness is daunting for someone who didn't do anything with her hair until I turned 30...then I got brave.  I have loved it ever since.  Now I get to learn how to curl with my could get interesting around here!

My next gift to myself (did I mention I love birthday money!!!) is getting an hour massage by my other sister in law.  I'm going to get a massage before we leave for Disneyland (although as I am writing this I think I did that backwards...I should have saved it for after Disneyland....oh well).  So I can't wait for the massage.  I had such a hard time spending all my birthday money (as a matter of fact I still have to spend...why do I have this problem???), but I think it's well spent and another thank you to those of you who enabled me to do these things for myself!  Otherwise I'm not sure I'd ever do these things for's a nice feeling.


  1. Absolutely perfect! I am debating getting blond/carmel highlights or keep the deep red/plum ones I have. Us ladies have tough decisions to make!

Dru joined in the fun...they really do enjoy it when daddy holds the big brother down, easy target!
Lee really going for it...check his stance out!Even Eli got in on the fun...he didn't spank nearly as hard as the other brothers...of course he wasn't quite sure what was going on anyway...he just wanted to do it too!Ian and his birthday ice cream cake! He lives for ice cream cake! What a handsome fella!
He had a good day and got a gift he's been waiting for since he saw it and Grandpa Lee and Grandma Paulson's house on Christmas day....thank goodness they came through and got it for him! He got some money and some great outdoor games and items! He had a great day! I l…

 My birthday boy!  Has 4 years really gone by so quickly!?!  This year his birthday was the day before Thanksgiving...I am NOT cooking a birthday dinner tonight!  We will be going to Pizza Hut and having a party there...Eli is SO excited and is so happy that his day is finally here!!  It's been a long year of everyone else having their birthdays and not him.

 Birthday spankings!!  Thank goodness it is only 4 and a pinch to grow an inch!
Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
