Hello Friday, my sweet, sweet friend!! It’s been crazy around these parts lately, and my head is a whirl with activity today, so I’ll just throw it all out there. Here’s what’s up this weekend at Casa Sugarplum.
You know I’m not a frequent hair-washer, but did you know Mr. Sugarplum colors it? (I get some help in the blonde department. Shocker, I know.) Granted I don’t use off-the-shelf box color, since my Nashville bff is a rock-star hairstylist, she keeps me stocked with the good stuff. And even though Mr. Sugarplum does a bang-up job, it doesn’t compare to a professional. In the six years we’ve lived here, I’ve been relying on him and frequent visits with my friend to keep me from looking like a wildebeest. As hard as it is, it’s time to find a local hairstylist. I’ve got an appointment tomorrow with someone new, and I’m bringing these pictures with me. Does anyone do blonde and bangs better than Reese?
My son is single-handedly keeping the healthcare industry in business. Yesterday he had his third x-ray this year…busted foot, sprained thumb and now fractured arm. Next up is the appointment with an orthopedic. Is this just a boy thing??
Since it appears Google isn’t going to come to their senses and keep Picnik around, it’s time to face the inevitable. I’ve been playing around with the different photo-editing sites available, and PicMonkey is by far my favorite. It was created by former Picnik people, so it’s veeeeeery similar. I edited this post and this post completely with PicMonkey. It’s free for now, but I’m sure once they add more features (and Picnik closes for good), they’ll start charging.
Slowly but surely, I’ve been going through our digital pictures and making a family photo book for each year, but ran out of steam around 2009. Snapfish is having a sale on all photo books, so here’s hoping I find time for 2010 and 2011! Use code CelebrateBKS for 50% off until April 15, or Bookit40 for 40% off until April 30.
And lastly, I’d like to welcome my newest sponsors! I’m so honored they want to be part of this blog. If you’re interested in reaching the hottest, most clever readers in blogland, shoot me an email.
What have you got going on this beautiful Spring weekend? Enjoy, lovebugs!
