Things have been a little crazy around the Johnson household the past couple of weeks. Work is insane and Miss Emma is one big handful. Luckily we have a lot of people willing to help out. (Thanks for picking up the slack the past couple of weeks Mom! I know Emma loves spending time with her Nanny!)

Jeremy's dad had surgery last week to remove some skin cancer. Luckily they were able to remove it all and he's going to be good as new. But, it really got me thinking about my absolute love of the tanning bed. Maybe I need to give that up. But I'm not the type of girl to go around pasty white in the summer. So, if anybody has any recommendations on a good self tanner please pass it along. Otherwise, my vanity and lust for golden skin may outweigh my good intentions!

Also, I chopped off some more hair. Jeremy threatened to ban me from the salon and has decided to grow his hair out as retribution. We'll see how long that lasts! I had to do it though. It is just too stinking hot to have all my thick unruly hair on my neck! The bangs are still the same but the length only comes to just below my chin and the back is stacked. Love.

I've got a lot of projects going on at the homestead. Our bathroom renovation is still ongoing. We've gotten a little lazy since our shower is working. (Maybe I should correct that-the hubs has gotten a little lazy. ) It's tough keeping him motivated because he would rather be spending time with us than working. But hey, I am not one to tolerate disorder and we had a come to Jesus confrontation the other night. The toilet bowl sitting on my carport, added to a hellish day at work, was the last straw. We are not white trash and I went into orbit about the toilet that has been sitting on my carport since we began renovations in MAY!! A girl can only take so much. I love my hubs, truly, but I can't vent to him because it will just delay the project even further. So, sorry guys-you get stuck hearing it! As much as I hate to miss out on my Emma time I may need to see if I can let her spend some time with a grandparent one Saturday afternoon so I can get my house back in order. (Can you hear the extreme guilt I suffer at times for being a working mom?)

I've also prepared Jeremy for my thoughts on Emma's bday party-cowgirl theme! Yee Haw! I'm going pink and purple instead of the traditional blue and red because I've found some awesome stuff online. And I can have the party outdoors because a lot of decorations will already be in place via my fall decorating frenzy. Jeremy already has his to-do list of projects that need to be finished up outdoors. Here's hoping he pulls through and I don't have to cancel or move the party at the last minute!

Going back to work now!

I love the hair too! LOVE!
Also, I too would have gone insane if there were a toilet sitting in my carport for two months. I would have killed someone.

I love your hair! Good for you for helping Jeremy "see the light." Why must we stay on guys to make them finish projects???

My curling iron broke a few weeks ago, and it's still being held together by some unidentifiable metal clamp instead of being glued back together with the super glue I bought him right after it broke. Go figure.
