Jaime is working on reconstructing the blog. It's really in need of something more appealing, now that the template designer can be used. Expect it to look a little--errmmm--out of place and strange for a while!

Just so you all know, I will be posting a jewelry making part 2 as soon as I get pictures.  It will probably be about making necklaces with barrel clasps.  I am also hoping to post a few of my favorite favorite hairstyles.  I might do videos for the hairstyles, but I might not.  It all depends.....

5 Random Things Post

Hey Everyone!!!!!  It's Jaime, I know I haven't posted in FOREVER!  

The first random thing is quilts.  I just finished a baby quilt, and it's so cute!!!  It's my first quilt and really simple, but still cute.  Its theme is cute cartoon frogs.  Me and Mom went to the store a while ago and found three froggy themed materials and one plain green.  Court just finished cutting out squares for a quilt and she just a few minutes ago started sewing.

The second random thing is Mikey.  He came back for a visit!  He's grown soooo much.  He's taller, can talk more (though he's forgotten a few animal sounds), and has really long hair.  When we watched him a little while ago, we actually put a barrette in his hair to hold his bangs back.  Shhhh...don't tell his dad.  :)

The third random thing is August.  This August we kids are going to go to our grandparents house in North Carolina.  We are probably going to stay there about a week.  And their neighbor has offered to let us swim in her underground pool.  I can hardly wait to go there!!!!!

The fourth random thing is just a couple hairstyle blogs that I like.  The first is cutegirlshairstyles.com.  I really love this blog.  It has some really cute hairstyle ideas.  The other is princesshairstyles.com.  I really like this one too.  They both have really cute hairstyles.

And, last but definitely not least, my fifth random thing.  Aunt Becky and our cousins are moving back to Virginia!!!  I'm so excited!!!  They had moved to Delaware, but they found it wasn't a very nice place.  Their were alot of child molesters around their and they didn't feel safe.  They're moving back into a giant house.  I think it has about 7 bedrooms and is two story with a basement.  So yeah.  But I'm so excited!!

Well, that's it for my five random things post.  Hope you liked it!


P.S.  If you read this, I miss you Lexi!!

Contacts For Courtney

Guess what?!  Forget about guessing; I'll just tell you.

Yesterday, I went to the eye doctor.  I haven't been in about 5 years, so...  Yeah, it's been a while.

They ran through all the tests and told me that my eyes had hardly changed at all.  They also said that my eyes would be perfect for contacts.

 The man who examined my eyes had actually offered me tinted contacts in the case that I wanted to change my eye color, and although I really like blue eyes, I figured getting those kind of contacts would be like trying to be something I'm not.

Not to mention, God made me who I am, and I wouldn't want to change that.  And so, I went with the clear contacts.  =)

Once the man had finished checking my eyes, he sent me to this lady who showed me how to put my contacts in.  I thought it'd be kind of hard to get them in, but it was a snap!  =D

The lady was all like, "I love you...  You're so easy.  Some people take hours...."

Once I got my contacts in, the lady told me all about how to take care of them and gave me a bag with some starter supplies.

I also picked out new glasses while we were in there.  They're different than the ones I have right now, but they aren't bad.

Took me a while to pick 'em out though.  The lady kept giving me all these different pairs of glasses, most of which looked really WEIRD on me.  O.o

I'm pretty happy with the ones I picked out though...  And I'm ESPECIALLY happy about the contacts.  I've been waiting YEARS for these things!!

I can hardly even feel they're there.  It's almost like I can just automatically see.  =)

Well, I guess that's it for now.  Later!
