An assortment of FABULOUS links:

1. My next tattoo would be something like this.  Found via oh, hello friend.

2. Instead of the ombre hair trend... how about ombre nails!!

3. A swimming pool in your living room.  What?!?!

4. I can never get enough of crystal necklaces (bona drag).

5. Binder clips to secure cords-- GENIUS.

6. Red and white polka dots, as seen on Sincerely, Jules.

7. Pretty colors, on Cocoa & Hearts paintings.

8. Painted rainbow bench -- reminds me of Em's Xylophone.

9. Gwen Stefani for Target? Yes, Please!

10. Hello Kitty glasses.

Marc went to a retirement party for one of his co-workers on Saturday.  It happened to be at the Perry & Price (local radio personalities) show at Jimmy Buffet's.  He won one of the prize drawings for a trip to Vegas!!!!

How fabulous is that?  Only thing-- leaves on Tuesday.  Perfect for Marc since he's a School Counselor and on Summer Break right now (so jealous).  Although we got married in Vegas-- it's not my most favorite place to visit, and I have to he's taking his Dad.  You know that if it was someplace like, say... San Francisco-- I'd be THERE!

Since Marc's leaving this week-- we decided to do a family day today.  We surprised Em Jay by taking her to the fair.  Or as she calls it, "the carvinal".  She was so HAPPY. 

Marc seems to be a winner this week, doesn't he?
