Is it really really bad that i like the post tentacle thing? are you going to ban me from your blog?

Love the new 'do!
Mine will be up tonight.

Love the new 'do!

that salt shaker is pretty cool, too :-)

Do the grapefruit blossoms smell citrusy at all? I've been having wicked cravings for grapefruit lately!

EGADS! Remind me to not piss you off! Axe throwing competition? Yikes (and yes!)

And your hair is gorgeous, do you think we'd say anything otherwise after that axe crashing through the air or that eyebrow raised in I dare you?

But really, it's hot. (God, paris hilton has ruined that word.)

Hehe I put my pics up before you did. I think I cheated a bit this week though. ;)

Love the new 'do.

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Reb said...

Love the new do! I also really like the saltshaker.

Where is your highland garb though? Congrats to you, your Grandmother and your mom!

Love the spork bangle.

That salt shaker is wonderful!

Love your new 'do!

Way to go on the axe throwing. Remind me to never get you upset near an axe. . . Or I'm glad you weren't holding one in Jay's dream.

Your haircut is awesome! I'd love to do that again to myself, but I've been told many a time by the husband, "you can do anything you want to your hair, just don't cut it."

This is why I dye it so many different colours.

I'm off to check the Etsy Picks and WTF's. . .

are you kidding me, you 3 won the top prizes in axe throwing?????????? If your ex employer had known this, I wondder if they would have laid off somebody else, cause you GOT SKILLS!

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Julie said...

I heart that you, your mom, and your grandmother were the ax throwing competition place winners. great new do and, leave it to a guy to have no clue what you are talking about when you say spork bangle. That one especially made me laugh.

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Jay said...

I love the new do! And the cut-offs. ;-)

Hey, that was a compliment. What are you doing with that ax? haha

What's really cool is that even if you piss the person you're pissed off at with the ax, your grandmother and mother won't. I'm sure they'd do that for you too.

Of course I was going to make a crack about you getting beat by two people older than you, but then though better of it. I'm betting you aim below the belt.

I also love the salt shaker whale. I wonder how many millions of those are for sale in beach side gift shops in Florida? hehe

Guess what? We've got WWC pictures over at our place! Hooray for us.

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger HalfAsstic.com said...

Well, How cute are you?! Hey! Are you winking at me! heh
We just need to let Hoop know in a very pleasant, non threatening way that you possess the talent to disembowel him with an ax if he gets out of line... I'm just saying, an ounce of prevention... ;-)

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger g-man said...

Excellent job, white picket fences!! (Not as good as Jay's tighty whities, but close ;)

Congrats on the axe throwing. (Note to self don't be near angry Tink when she has an axe)

Nice doo. It goes well with your wonky eye.

I'll get my WWC posted some time today. maybe.

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Gordo said...

Hmm ... If your recently-previous employer was aware that you threw axes, they might have hesitated. ;-)

Congratualtions! The family that throws axes together ... does whatever they want!

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Mary said...

your hair looks great! nice work on 3rd place, and I think it's awesome that the 2 who did better were your mom and grandma!

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger furiousBall said...

that is a definite axe-thrower haircut, next year i bet you kick grandma's ass

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Fortune Cookies said...

that new do is perfect for you! hey, that rhymed!
I really like the white fish saltshaker. In fact, I think I covet it, just a little bit.
A family of axe-throwers, eh? So Hoop gets to say "So I married an ax-eh...thrower" ok, that was lame. I hope to get back into the WWC game very soon. I miss playing along.

"All the women in my family are champion ax-throwers" would be an excellent facebook status. Is Hoop proud of you, or worried? ;)
Just to be safe, he should probably buy you that spork bangle.
I think my favorite pic of yours is the white picket fence (although your hair does look great!) and knowing that those lovely blossoms are for grapefruit is making me crave some ruby goodness right now.

Mine are up (and cold)!

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger fiwa said...

A family of championship axe throwers? That is so freaking awesome! You're like some kind of mean-machine-axthrowin-hitwimmin!

I love the new do - it frames your face so nicely. :)

 
At 03 March, 2009, Blogger Chris said...

The 'do is awesome. And dang, I can see family arguments getting a little bloody 'round your house...

 
At 03 March, 2009, Anonymous The Beer Geek said...

Yeah the do is nice! :)
But I think Tink could cut her hair anyway she wanted to and it would look great!
Thanks again you two for your great birthday present yesterday! We three beer freaks OMyself, Eric and George will put it to good use and hopefully make many many a good home brew with the Mr Beer Kit :)

BTW: God bless you Hoop for taking that pic of Tink! LOL

 
At 04 March, 2009, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

You look very pretty :)

 
At 04 March, 2009, Blogger Terri said...

axe thrower eh? wow, you have the most amazing hidden talents! The hair looks fantastic.

My pics and some other random garbage are up at my place. I failed miserably at mailbox/slot and you'd think that one would be easy as pie, but it just didn't happen for me!

Women's ax throwing champions, eh? I'm thinking all the men in your family should really watch it. You guys are deadly!. And that mailbox picture cracked me up!

 
At 04 March, 2009, Blogger Dr.John said...

Very good pictures.
You might be able to get a cereal commercial as the family of champions.

 
At 04 March, 2009, Blogger mamatulip said...

Seeing your new 'do makes me want to grow my hair.

 
At 04 March, 2009, Blogger CRUSTYBEEF said...
