My favorite pic from camping!

We've taken alot of pics this year, some close ups, some of nature, some of the kids, Hubby and I will snap anything that comes our way! But of all the pics we've taken this year, this is one of my favorites!
We went camping alot this summer, and my daughter enjoys walking around just looking at the birds, trees, etc. Her and Daddy went walking to find the trails and we got this awesome pic of her, I just love the colors and how it's like a Hide and Seek pic of her!

It's days like these I love!!

This past week has been such a tiring one, I told myself this weekend was going to be one of rest and relaxation. That meant for me, no shopping till I drop, no cleaning for hours, and def. no staying up all night! Now, I cannot say that I didn't do any of them, in fact, I did go shopping, I did clean the house, and I did stay up too late last night, BUT, I also got a TON of books and spent almost all afternoon Saturday reading! I haven't really read a book from start to finish in one day in a long time, but I actually finished 2 books, and my daughter finished 4! I'm so glad at least one of my kids got my love of reading!
I don't know if anyone else does this, but as a kid, I read so many books that when I see them now, in Used bookstores or Thrift stores, I have to buy them and read them! I was a huge Babysitters Club fan, had them all, and so now I'm trying to get my daughter into them. If she doesn't enjoy them, I'll still enjoy reading them, lol!
I'm hoping tomorrow will be another nice, relaxing day, however, because I spent the whole day reading today, I now have a big load of laundry staring at me... maybe I'll stay up late again tonight and finish it!

Loving the Conair You Curl!

I've been wanting a You Curl since I first saw them in stores, but me being cheap, was not going to spend $40 on something that I probably would only use every once in awhile. So, I waited, and waited, and on Cyber Monday found it for $28 on Amazon! Throw in my $20 giftcode I had, and paying $8 for it, well, that I could handle!
First off, I love the fact that it heats up almost instantly! I plugged it in and turned around for a second, checked it seconds later and it was ready! The curls are AMAZING! I experimented, did some spiral, some waves, and they all came out perfect : )
BUT, the only problem I'm having is figuring out how to do the BACK of my hair! Normally, I just straighten my hair and go, and I've been doing that for over `11 years so I got that down pat. This new task, is not only stressful, but a pain in the neck, literally : } My sis told me using 2 mirrors would work, so that will be tried out tomorrow. Any other tips are GREATLY welcome!
