  1. A short bob would be cute on you and you can stick your hair behind your ears orb use a Barrett to pull the top back. 

  2. I saw the video of Caleb skiing and he is doing a great job – so are you as his instructor. That story about the boy with the giant feet gives me hope that maybe I can get a pair of shoes made to fit my strange feet …I have wide feet and it’s hard to get what I want in my size. Glad you and Maria ha a good “date” night – though I’m not sure a basketball game would have been my choice…lol…..I like the before/after kitchen Maria linked to though I’m not huge fan of all of the open shelving. The ruffle jacket is cute and I think it’s a goo idea to make clothing list like you do a grocery list – I’m going to try doing that too. The hipster repackaging made me feel guilty for some reason – like it showed how shallow I can be about how things are packaged and I’m not even a hipster….lol…don’t have a dinner staple – which is really sad – going to have to work on that. Have a good weekend!

  3. hey y’all- great list! The food looks amazing! Maria you should get your hair cut! It would look so good! Good luck
