* Wigs were (mostly) not worn. (As in, Josie wore hers part of the time and Caleb wore it for the picture!)
* Lessons were learned (Do not try to make a wig again! Just buy one!! side note: they did look better than in the picture, but we had to throw them on them quickly and snap the picture before tears and torn up wigs resulted!)
* Way too much candy is now in my house! Eeek!

Debby, you are a COUNTRY CASUAL
Your home expresses your open, easygoing approach to life. You love unique finds, and can turn a few mismatched garden chairs or floral teacups into a charming arrangement. You appreciate a pretty mix of relaxed pieces, like painted wood or weathered furniture, lovely florals and other patterns, lots of throws and pillows, mementos and bunches of fresh flowers that give your home a unique sense of breeziness and charm.
You value order. You feel happiest if your home is well organized. You understand that when your house is in order, your mind feels clearer. Rather than a lot of meaningless objects or overly-designed items, you are happier with a few well-placed things. Your home is your respite from a busy life. Try to avoid letting things into your home that you don't really love.

The following is a progression to fully document my obsession with tweaking! ;)
This arrangement on the front door has also changed already, but I haven't taken a new picture yet.
And these are the other projects I worked on today.
Whew! I think it actually took me longer to do this post than to do all of the things around the house today!

I can't explain to you what that does to me! I feel it in my bones!
I need a good sniff of that fresh, sweet, salty Maine air.
I need to creep ever so slowly into that frigid water!
I need to walk along the beach collecting beach glass, pretty shells and other treasures.
I need to climb across the huge rocks along the shoreline and explore.
I need to walk out onto the Rockland Breakwater.
I need to lift up some big clods of seaweed during low tide and find some cute little crabs scurry away.
I need to sit on the porch of a cottage and watch sailboats and schooners glide by.
I need to walk along a dirt road and pick wild berries and gobble them up before getting them home.
I need to walk around in Camden (please don't confuse it with Camden, NJ ...so very different!) and stop in all of the fun, cute, quaint little shops.
I need to drive by the Belted Galloways (pretty cows - yes, I said pretty!)
I need to drive across that bridge on my way into Maine and roll down the windows half way across and just breathe deeply and enjoy the air and blast "Portland Town" by Schooner Fare.
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, I NEED a big, juicy, home cooked Maine lobster bought right down on the dock and boiled up at home with some cucumber salad and sweet corn on the cob on the side and a nice bowl of melted butter for dipping (no worries about diets when eating Maine lobster!!)
Can you see how much I want to go back to Maine?! We had great times in Maine as kids and I really miss that!!
To those of you family members who're reading this: #1 I apologize because I know what seeing these pictures has done to you. #2 Now when are we going to plan another family trip???!!!
