I'm inspired

So, I'm not very crafty. Or artistic. I don't scrapbook. I don't stamp. I don't draw. I don't sew (although sometimes I DO knit!). But I have a very talented, artistic cousin (maybe THAT'S where Sis gets it... because it's not from Don or me!). She's recently started a blog that you can find here, that focuses on her latest artistic endeavors.

One of her blogs that I really enjoyed (here) was about reusing old fabrics and being inspired to make wrist cuffs. Today we had lunch, and she gave me one!

It doesn't match my outfit at all today, but I'm wearing it anyway, because it's so cute! (and yes, I know I need a manicure! hehe).

Hair today, gone tomorrow

Here's Bub while we were on vacation in San Antonio (see all the Pottery Barn boxes in the background? It was an outlet... Awesome!). Anyway, Bub was ready to talk (but only talk) about cutting his hair shorter for the summer. But he was waffling...

So Don and I told him he could get ANY crazy haircut he wanted for his birthday weekend, but he'd have to cut it all off at the end of the weekend. We said he could even choose a MULLET if he wanted!!!

But he chose...

Yup, a spiky Mohawk. And yes, he carried his WWE belt with him practically the whole time his hair was like this.

Then came Sunday...

How cute is he???? Don't get me wrong... I like it long, too, but it's so cute now!

On a related note

From the minute I even saw Sis's ultrasound picture, I could tell she resembled Don's side of the family. It was the nose! She already had the same nose as his mom, sister AND niece! Once Sis was born and we saw her coloring, we realized how MUCH she resembled Don's mom!

Ten years later, there's still no doubt they're related!
