Ben: I'm so hungry, I need to get some food now.
Me: Do you want me to make you something? I can make you a chicken and cheese quesadilla really quick.
Ben: No, I don't want that. Quesadillas are fattening and don't fill me up. I'm going to go out and pick up some dinner.
Me: What is that? Taco Bell?
Ben: (sheepishly) Yeah...
Me: (looking closer at the see-through bag) Ohmigosh, you just got a quesadilla, didn't you?!?
Ben: No.... maybe.... yes...
Way to be cool, husband.

We really do love each other, I swear.

Last night Ben and I finally went to see Mamma Mia. I absolutely loved the movie- we saw the play on Broadway during our honeymoon, so I have a soft spot in my heart for it. Ben didn't share my love- he said that it was the worst movie he had ever seen. Whatev, I was happy- singing, dancing, and Colin Firth? Sounds great to me.

So I go to Kohls, find a cute tank and light light cardigan to layer it with. Bought them. Feeling pretty happy. Went back to work, changed out of the stained shirt and into the new ones. Sit down at my desk, ready to resume my tasks. Take a drink out of my DDP. SPILL MY DRINK ALL OVER MYSELF AGAIN.
Today is not looking very promising.
Ben says that I can't, because he thinks that we'd end up looking like this family:
Whatev, I guess my options are limited to blonde and brown. Fine. I mean, it's not like I've ever let Ben make my decisions before, so part of me says,"Just do it." Even so, a little part of me understands what he means about not wanting to look like the Weasley's. I've heard too many times already that me and Ben look like brother and sister... I don't think that us both having orange hair would help that compairison any.

Here are some highlights of my 52 hour stay at camp:
- I came packed for August weather, however temps ranged from about 40-70 degrees. Brrrr.
- It rained SO much. 10 minutes from the end of the hike it began pouring and hailing. I had never been so wet- thank goodness I brought extra pants and shoes!
- When sharing a cabin, it is smart to have earplugs for bedtime. You never know who might snore and the decibels their snores can reach :)
-Large quantities of chocolate are a must
-The leaders almost gave our girls a heart attack when doing our "Hot, hot desert" skit. I wish there were pictures!
- This was the longest I've gone without a shower. The showers were literally ice cold and since it was so cold outside anyway, I felt that filth was more desirable than freezing in the shower.
- In lieu of a real shower, baby wipe showers and a bandanna on my head were lifesavers.
Me and my girls getting ready to canoe around the lake. My hot outfit of workout pants and hoodie, layered with a poncho and a life jacket earned me the nickname of Miss Puffy. I was very attractive.

Getting the book was super fun as well- Erna, Stacey, Jessica and I met in Murray to attend the release party and get our books together. It was a fun party and the time passed very quickly. It was great to hang out with the girls- I don't see them nearly enough and we always have fun together. Sorry to the unfortunate man standing behind us in line- he probably had to hear way too much info from us.
