    We have a chair that's the rose and green colors and our futon/couch is beige.  I think it'll be really great.  We even have an old map poster print on the wall.

    I didn't do anything all day either.  It makes me feel a little better that I wasn't the only unproductive one today.  I actually got out of my PJ's around 5 just because I was out of wine and needed to go to the store.

    Oh, and in serious answers to what I've done today: well, it's only just past midday. H and I were going to go out and buy an SLR (late birthday present for me) but the model we want hasn't hit the stores yet so that plan didn't come to fruition. It's sort of cool today so I'm currently sitting by the fire (probably last fireplace use for awhile as it's been hot for the past couple of weeks). I spent this morning packing our suitcase for Hawaii and Osaka- fun! Getting excited now it's so close.

    Come along with us, Tide.  It's supposed to be 80* and sunny.  It'll be fun.

    Does your local fire or police station help with carseat installations?  I never felt like I had the belt tight enough.

    I want some too! I thought they were kind of an unnecessary splurge, but DSW has so many in the $40-50 range lately that I might just up and do it. I suppose I can wear them with any outfit I'd usually pair black heels with...

    Yup, ankle boots!

    Ive wanted an SLR for a long time, but our finances have just never had room for me to get something of value - something seems to always come up when we get enough money :( What kind of things do you want to photograph?

    Opal - I think the same thing. I want to wear them with work pants. They would be cute with pants OR a skirt so I like the versatility of that.

    I have actually had some really good luck with boots.  I have a great pair of booties I got a few years ago that are Steve Madden and two other pairs one kind of slouchy suede boots and the other a dark tan leather that go up about midcalf from Aldo both for half off because my little sister was working there at the time

    Spread the seams apart and look for the bugs themselves, eggs, poop and dead things. I woudl look up how to check for bed bugs to make sure you know exactly what youre looking for.

I remember once when I was working for child safety (aka CPS) and I had to go and pick up a baby to take him back to the office for visitation with his mother. I put him in the carseat and then spent about 15 minutes trying to adjust it. The whole time, the foster parents were inside and I was thinking, dear lord, please do not let them see me struggling with this seat! It was pretty clear I'd never used one before. Now I think back, I shudder that they actually had me pick up the baby in the first place when I was never trained in fitting/adjusting the baby seats!</p>

    To me, ankle boots are the ones that come up over the top of the ankle and look awkward with pretty much anything but pants. Booties are cut at or below the ankle so they look more flattering with dresses too.

    But either is right, I think. "Booties" was probably just the cool, new thing to call it when they started to get popular.

    haha thanks night! I thought you were joking! 

     

    I'm not sure about a fringe. I had one when I was a child that has left me with PTSD (it was REALLY bad and my mother forced me to keep it until I was 11). I'm just scared I'll look like that again!

    Fleas are evil. When I was living with the ex's crazy grandmother she had them, and Demon got crazy infested. I felt like such a bad cat mom because she didn't scratch or anything until they got really bad.
