Sunday Six

1.) I went shopping yesterday for the first time in about a month. Sometimes I get that sudden urge to buy skirts or dresses, you know? Especially now that the weather is getting warmer. (Although it's still kind of overcast outside. Damn you, clouds!) I ended up buying a black accordion skirt from Zara, which surprised me since I usually stay away from black. But I love how flouncy it is! *Flounces*

2.) Since Justin is gone on a business trip, my little sis and I have been spending a lot of time together. Little sisters are awesome! Today, we went to a local garden to walk around and to scare off the Canadian geese. (I hate how they poop everywhere. Damn geese!) Here I am in my flouncy black skirt! You can't really see how flouncy, it is. I should've been skipping...

3.) And here's Kristy looking over the great wilds of the garden. We've decided that we're going to move here some day and build a house overlooking the pond and gazebo. You're all invited! You can stay in our guesthouse. We'll have three of those.

4.) The best part of the garden was the roses! *Dies* They were so, so, so pretty. Especially this pink one with a yellow center. It looked like a sunrise.

5.) Speaking of sisters, I made a mock-up this weekend for Kristy's new blog. She's going to China this fall for study abroad and she wants a blog to share pictures with friends and family since the Chinese government has banned Facebook. Ah, the Chinese government! I'm so glad my grandparents fled from you.

By the way, I'm seriously loving this blog design thing. So. Much. Fun. And so much easier than writing a book!

6.) And finally, THANK YOU for all of your encouragement! I sent an excerpt of my WIP to Jim on Thursday and now I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. Fingers crossed he'll like it!

How are you guys doing? What did you do this weekend?
