I cut all my hair off!

I've always wanted to do it, but I always totally chickened out, but this time I actually went ahead and cut all of my hair off. It's a little crazy of me, but I love it!

I've been swamped at work. We're understaffed (anyone need a job? haha), and so I've been working extra hours... Which means more money for me. I did some work and shopping for my spoilee's kit this weekend. I really can't wait to finish it off and send it out. I get just as excited sending out my kits as I do recieving one. I hope that she likes it as much as I do. lol...

Anyway, that's all I've been up to pretty much. Just dropping in to keep my blog updated...

Sorry for my recent inactivity

I went to the beach this weekend and stayed with my friend, Michelle. As a graduation gift she got us a complimentary room at the Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. When we got there we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite. It was beautiful. Not too mention insanely relaxing to get out of vegas and enjoy the ocean. (Sometimes it pays to work a crap office job when your bff is your boss and can totally hook you up with stuff like that.) We spent Saturday morning walking around the city, Saturday afternoon napping at the pool while we looked out at the ocean. Then sunday morning we had breakfast and spent the day at the beach. Then we had to drive home... :( Here are some pictures so that you can all be insanely jealous.

Casa del Mar... I took this picture standing in the ocean

(I have the white sweater, Michelle has the grey hoodie)

Then yesterday the pregnant girl at work had her baby and finally started her maternity leave, so with the exception of today, I know have to work until 6 everyday. Which kind of sucks because I really started getting used to getting home early. Oh well, it's more money for me.

Today, my day off, my boyfriends boss totally hooked me and my friend Jamie up with a free cabana out at the Palms' pool. Those usually run at about $400 a day and so I'll be spending my entire day poolside having cocktails. (My boyfriend woks front desk at the Palms... I felt I should mention that)

Now I'm off to take Rocky to the vet and then get Jamie and head out to the pool. YAY! This is the last weekday that I will ever have off and I'm making it count.

I'm dead

I'm dead. I already received my hat from the dueling club.... I finished mine and never got to the post offie to send it off. So I guess that's what I get then. Anyways, congratulations to Ophelia Crookshanks. At leaset I got beat by a fellow Slytherin. I'll be rooting for her to win it now. hahaha. I'll be sending my hat out today.

I think I might knit the rest of the hats and send them to other people, or just give them to family members. I really need to do some de-stashing.... It's getting horrible. I have yarn overflowing from everywhere.
