Meanwhile back at the ranch...

Hmm... So I guess turning 28 means I don't blog anymore? I don't know. It's probably because Satan's latest tool (pinterest) has sucked up all my internet time.

We've also been busy (which I just accidentally typed busty, and we are definitely not that) although I can't even remember what we've been doing. We had a miraculous 4 or so days of nice weather last week and I was pretty much in a panic over it. "Get outside Logan, quick! Before it's gone! Go! GO!" The house looked like a tornado went through it by the end of the week but I'm glad we spent every second we could outside because now that nice weather is gone and I'm back to scrubbing toilets.

In a semi-related topic, guess what this is:
a. A Harry Potter potion ingredient
b. A delicacy from Tyson's mission (Honduras)
c. Our latest catch from the tide pools at Cannon Beach
d. Something boring like plant bulbs
 If you guessed.......

D., you were right! These are the bulbs of the ranunculus (which I prefer to call redonkulous) flower which I planted in my yard last week. What was not boring about these was when I forgot to plant them and let them soak just a few (ok, 18) hours longer than the recommended 24 they smelled like rotten baby poop.


And then my hands stunk for 2 days. The bulbs were probably all rotten. Guess we'll see if they grow.

In more news from last week, Tyson went to Florida for work so I drove up to Olympia to see my dear friend Ashley. We had great talks, food, did zumba, ran, and generally had a great time. During all that I only took one picture.
A dud.

More news; I got my hair cut. It's only been about 10 months since my last trim so I guess it was time to make a change. I cut a few inches off the bottom and...
my biennial bangs are back. Somehow I must have stumbled upon the secret to doing bangs. I can't tell you what it is, because I don't know, but they have been super easy to do this time around. Must be the cut!

I have more to say, but it's late and I wanted to post something today so this will have to do! Remind me to tell you how I'm going to be an extreme couponer. But probably not.



  1. So this one time you came to visit me today, and I got the "something about her hair is different" vibe, but couldn't figure it out. BANGS! Duh. Looks good! :)

  2. "Satan's latest tool" Bwahahaha! I'm thinking about jumping on the bangs bandwagon, but I'm not sure yet. I don't want to not be good at doing them & be stuck with them until they grow out. Ha ha!

  3. Love your haircut!!! You look gorgeous! I wish mine looked that good!

  4. Wow, Mari, I can't believe how time has flown. I still remember you at 19 in our little apartment together, blasting the heat up to 90 degrees during the winter. lol now you're 28, married w/a child and I'm well into my 30s. You still look 19 and as beautiful as ever!
