The days seem to be flying past as spring turns into summer. Here's a break-down of what's been occupying our household this season:
1. New Hair
After almost year of lying fallow, my poor noggin finally got some attention. I opted for a dark brown to red ombré, and I really like how it turned out! I can't wait until the more subtle red fades away so I can cast it with something more punky. (PS: I used this coupon for 20% off services at Carlton salons. Feel free to take for yourself!)
2. Another Avatar
The creators of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" have struck a home run again with their new series, "The Legend of Korra." This time, the avatar is a 17-year-old girl from the southern Water Tribe, and I freaking love her. She's brash, hot-headed, stubborn, and confident, which of course reminds me of a certain female quappa member of our household. They even look similar (although Korra has a water bender's trademark blue eyes)! As final proof, I submit to you this clip:
Totally Emi, right? Right.
3. The end of the school year
Speaking of our little avatar, Emi's last day of Pre-K is tomorrow. I am more than a bit weepy at the thought of my baby girl finally graduating from schools that can kick her out! Long live public education, where kids are pretty much stuck there (well, at least without a lot of legalese pomp and circumstance). Whew. A long, long saga will come to a close tomorrow, that's for sure.
An old friend of mine just left his job at Mattel, and on the way out he snatched a literal trunkload of toys for the kids. I expected Emi to be in Barbie heaven, and she is, but I did not predict that we had another Barbie fan:
So...let me know what you guys are up to! Is school out for you already, and how are you spending your days?
