death by hair straightener.

adam under a rainbow with his golf ball. never been so happy.

Adam got up at the crack of dawn this morning to golf with his pops, so I had a nice leisurely morning alone. Long shower, breakfast, yada yada yada.
Then, I almost died.
The culprit=hair straightener.
3 inches away from my face and >KaBoOm!<
A fireball the size of a bowling ball.
I may not have died, but i'm surprised the flames didn't burn my eyeballs out.
It wasn't until I got to work that I noticed the palm of my hand was BLACK.
...and now my mouth tastes like metal. (?)

mmm k.
kinda traumatic.
Naturally, I googled "hair straightener explosions" and found a forum of survivors who made me feel that I wasn't alone:

"my hair straightener tried to kill me!"
"OMG my straightener exploded!"
"A flame coming from the center of my hair straightener!"
" I got a big zap and my hair was scorched!"
"My new hair straightener isn't life-threatening"

yikes. I don't know if my hair will ever look as good again...

I know that flower posts are boring, but I was so excited to see these finally bloom!
Our backyard smells like heaven.
I wish I could post something more exciting,
but last night we played scrabble and had egg whites for dinner.
and that's about as exciting as we get.

the weekend is almost here~that's something to be excited about.
maybe we'll get crazy and play pictionary.

I found this picture I took a few months ago. Unfortunately my lemon tree does NOT look like that anymore~Today it looks more like a tumble weed...

Looks like i will be spending the weekend nurturing this lemon friend.
I could use some help from any green thumbs out there ;)

happy wife.

April 2011
Saturday night I came home to a spotless house. Dishes cleaned, bed made, floors mopped, lawn mowed.
The following morning I awoke to Adam singing Michael Jackson's "Heal the world, Make it a better place..." in the shower.

I don't know what has come over him, but i like it.

I just don't know how much he'll like me after reading this.

Just when I thought Amy Butler's home tour was the best of the best, I came across Keri Russel's home in Brooklyn. It takes the freaking cake.

I'm a PGA wife in training. I don't golf; but I shop, swim, and eat.
And we sure did a lot of that.

If adam didn't have a game tonight i would soooo make these.

happy birthday, miss audrey.

strange. yesterday i stopped by the store to pick up some items when i passed the movie section and found 'breakfast at tiffany's' for 5 dollah.
I contemplated buying it but set it down and went on my way. Later that night my friend Troy randomly told me that it was miss audrey's birthday today. hmmm...definitely going back to pick that movie up.
I think miss audrey is speaking to me.
