I can't believe tomorrow is September! Where has the year gone? So it's the Friday before a long weekend... love them! I'm just crossing my fingers that this means I get to leave work early today :D I need to do a little clean-up because Rick and Erin are coming with Ben for the night before they fly home to Virginia tomorrow. I can't wait to see my adorable little nephew (and Rick and Erin too, of course ;)!
I FINALLY, after almost 9 months, got a haircut last night. It's the simple things in life that make me the happiest. I felt that as I walked out of the salon, and then again while I was in my little attic listening to music and coloring a stamped giraffe with colored pencils. Silly, but it was just so relaxing! It was nice to work on a layout again (another Africa one, obviously ;), and I'm really excited for slightly cooler weather that should be just around the corner. I think half of my reticence in scrapbooking has been the thought of facing that room when it's hot. Fan or no fan!
In other news... I was at Target last night, very assiduously following my shopping list, when what did I see? A new flavor of Hershey's kiss. Tempting in and of itself, but these are candy corn flavored! I love candy corn. I mean seriously. It doesn't matter that candy corn is pretty much made of solid corn syrup and I can only eat about 5 pieces before I'm completely sugar shocked and done. I still love them. But candy corn kisses? I had to get some. They look like candy corn too, aren't they cute? (here's where I admit that I stole this picture from another blog because I was lazy and didn't do my own. I'll remedy that and upload my own picture soon... at least, that's the current plan. lol). I was hoping that it would be some kind of candy corn filling, but alas, they taste mostly like white chocolate. They're still good, but I think they look better than they taste. Which, of course, is much more beneficial to my current healthy eating plan than the alternative would have been. :)
Only two weeks until NHL training camps start up! I'm not counting down or anything. ;) (Note my new Avs News tracker to the left. Am I a total geek or what? lol).
