I could dye

It was a fun day with my sister. You know. Shopping. Trying on clothes. Giving opinions. Giggling.

Then Sis had the bright idea to get her eyelashes dyed. I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to one up her. Lashes AND brows. Bring it!

We lucked into a walk-in appointment at a fancy little spa in the area. Weren't we feeling the magic?

The nice lady put tape under our eyes, to prevent the dye from seeping all over everywhere.

When removing my sister's tape, the nice lady took skin. OUCH!

When removing my tape, the nice lady said "OOOPS!" The tape didn't prevent seeping.

She tried to remove the oops with some kind of acid.
(Well, that's what it felt like, as I jumped out of the treatment bed. )

Yes. I went home looking like this. Nope. I didn't have to pay for the Alice Cooper look. Wasn't I lucky?

Thankfully, it's worn off now. And my sister's skin grew back, too.

Note to self: From this day forward, avoid the nice lady at the fancy spa.

Happy Day!


ps. This didn't ruin our day. As soon as we got in the car, we called Mom and the laughing started up all over again!

I missed you in May!

Wow! In all my years of blogging, I've never missed an entire month of blogging! Oops! I may do better in June.

Hi! I really have missed you! Here's what you missed in May:

We celebrated David's 50th Birthday.

I hosted the 6th Annual Roadkill Chili Cookoff at my place. With 12 chilis entered, it may have been one of the most competitive cookoffs yet! My Mom won 1st place!

David, the love of my life, won 2nd place. (I promise this cookoff isn't rigged! Not even maybe.)
David - 2nd place!

Butterscotch may have celebrated a little too much with Bud.

We found a dead Northern Scarlet Snake in the middle of the road. I put it in a baggie and put it in my freezer. Seriously! I could fill you in with more details, but maybe David will blog about it.


We moved The Primitique into Tipsy Tango in Quinlan, Texas. We're still fluffing and filling, but the feel is there. Very exciting! Maybe you can come see for yourself?


We hope to have it in good shopping shape by this Saturday. Come see us!


I hope you had a great May!

May your June be, well, June-a-licioius!!
