at least I kept laughing
Although the baby wasn't in the hospital last week, he was still really sick so these are little things which made me laugh but I couldn't find the time to post. Random quip 1: At the hospital the other week, we were asked about religion. Nurse: Do you have a religious preferences?

Just in case you were putting off #Lent , I'm here to help! I can justify 40 days of pedicures! You're welcome.
Lent started on Ash Wednesday, but I'm still struggling to figure out how to acknowledge it in my life. Hence, I've taken my six extra days of no Lent to figure it out, and I'll just have to do one of these ten things on Sundays as well. Don't tell God! Obviously, I don't just want to add a ...

My first common  #fostercare  question answered.

Terrifying.
NEW YORK—A full 20 minutes after running into casual acquaintance Dan Ehrlemeyer at a CVS drugstore Wednesday and exchanging pleasant small talk with him, area man Jason Ditmas, 32, told reporters he was still really shaken up by the experience.

I love Mango. I have been going for almost 4 years now and after trying a LOT of different salons in town. I've had long hair, short hair, colored hair and everything in between and have not been disappointed with their ideas and outcomes. I have always felt like the way I am treated at the salon plus my haircuts and styles (and the scalp massage during the hair wash) lives up to the prices. I especially love my current stylist Merritt although I hesitate to write that because I don't want it to be hard to get an appointment with her because everyone else falls in love with her. Oh well.
