Blue Lagoon

Forget Disney, I want to go here! The water is 104 and full of minerals and silica mud and during certain times of the year, you can see the Northern Lights. The only downside? You're required to shower *nude* both before and after in a communal stall...but I guess it would be worth it.

Ocean in her new dress

and miraculously (with the help of a hershey's kiss), I actually got a barrette in her hair!

One Man's Trash is Russell's Treasure: Scary Shit at the 'Rents, part 1

I could probably dedicate a whole separate blog to this matter. Seriously. But for now I'll just post one item of interest each time we visit. Despite the collection of cross-country skis (no one on our family skis, mind you) and old vacuum cleaners salvaged from people's trash, I'm pretty sure they are not *certifiable* hoarders. They do and can get rid of stuff, although they consistently seem to take in more than goes out. But my Dad is unarguably a collector.
So our first specimen is this shelf in the kitchen....filled with Avon collectible steins (in my Dad's defense, my step-granmother gives him one each year for Christmas) and fishing lures. Fishing lures can be found, literally, in every single room in the house, but this is particularly hefty clusterfuck of 'em. Be careful when you get up from the table because you could get hooked. I know, because it's happened to me.

I just have to post this so I have proof (of my mystic powers) just in case it comes true...last night I dreamt both of my cousins, Joanna & Rachel, were pregnant at the same time.
As far as I know, neither are planning on having kids in the near future, although it would be cool if they did :)
