It's my birthday and I'll blog if I want to.

Well, it is my birthday ... and I'm using it as an excuse to write a blog. But really, I haven't thought of anything good to write about it a long time!!!!

Anyways, taking a break for today to digest my HUGE meal of chicken burritos and margaritas. 

Yay 28!

Greetings from Maine!

Wish you were here! Maine (Bar Harbor more exactly) looks like an Anthropologie catalog... and the air smells so amazing ... fresh and cool like autumn, with sweet smoke mixed in.

We've spent a lot of time going around Acadia National Park ... lots of moss and smooth stone beaches. 

Tomorrow we head on our trip back south --- down towards Boston way. 

I'm sure the lobsters will not miss us.

The little things ...

Sometimes, the most exciting things in life are the most mundane. Take, for example, my new little "package decor" that I'm trying out.

It's mostly to cover-up fed-ex labels and such on recycled packing ...but isn't it just too cute?

I've used stamps I ordered from SugarSkull on Etsy -- ---she's super cool.

And Frida -- I love Frida. She could rock the flower headband look like none other.

New book!

I bought this book --- "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" for the beach 2 weeks ago. It's apparently a HUGE bestseller -- and I figured 'you can't go wrong' with a bestseller. (I know you can name a few rotten eggs, but still!)

It's pretty good so far. I'm about halfway though and it's starting to get all interesting.

Definitely a crime/mystery novel --- not my usual genre, but it's definitely worth a read!

Anyone else read or reading it now? We should have a book club discussion thingy :)

VACATION --- Part 1.

Cost of two tickets for Ferris Wheel: $16

Time spent waiting to board Ferris Wheel: 25 minutes

Number of bad country songs blasted in our ears in waiting line: at least 4

View of Ocean City at night: PRICELESS!!

hahaa --- cynical me.

But really, we had a GREAT time at the beach!

The best part was the food and the long hours just laying in the sand doing nothing. My favorite thing by far.

My parents will be shocked to hear that ate mostly seafood! I have apparently just developed my adult taste buds and love fish now. I ate mahi mahi with a cashew crust ... a broiled flounder ... and some fried clam strips (but I liked those before because they are mostly just fried stuff.)

Anyways ... a good time all around! :)

BUT --- the bad part of vacation (the only bad part) is the coming home and feeling "out of it" part. I'm definitely going through that. It takes me a long time to get back into a rhythm of life .. especially with my business!

We took lots of photos today, and that usually helps get me going.

And GUESS WHAT!!! In two weeks we're going on ANOTHER vacation! This time to New England (Maine/Massachusetts, etc.)

It's a bit hectic for myself, but Rich didn't have much of a choice about when he would have off this year, so we're really making them count!

I can't complain though :)
