I need a birthday fairy.

Well we made it back from Beaufort today and didn’t do anything at all.  No workout, no cooking, nothing.  We sort of went all out on Friday night and are still slowly recovering.  Got back up to Lake Bowen to find that a lot changed in the backyard, so that was good!  For those of you who have been to John’s, you are going to be SO happy to see how much easier it is to get from the lake to the house.

There is something wrong with my camera, so I didn’t take many pics this weekend.  It works outside, but not inside with artificial lighting.  Every time I take a pic it puts a halo around any type of light and it’s really getting on my nerves.  I’m seriously ready for a DSLR.

I was going to save up for one, but John made me a deal instead.  He said that he will get me one for Christmas as a joint bday/Christmas present under one condition; I pay off as much of my car as I can each month instead of spending money on stuff I “need.”  I’m not so sure this is a good deal because my bday is in 2 weeks (August 13) and Christmas is forever away.  I could definitely save up before then.  Oh well…he’s probably right about me needing to pay off the car instead of buying clothes.  I say I’m going to save every month, but it never fails that I find something I “need” to get…like shoes. 

I’ve made a bday wishlist, but I don’t really know who’s going to give me these presents…a birthday fairy maybe?

Alright, I’m going to quit dreaming so I can concentrate on Entourage…toots!

P.S. tomorrow is John’s 30th bday!!!!!!!!!!  I wish the birthday fairy would come to give me funds to take him somewhere cool….
