Highlights of the day:

* Brought my coffee outside this morning and this greeted me:

When my sis moved she sent over all her plants to our house. She hadn't watered them for a while and this cactus was half dead. I thought it was a lost cause... Hmmmm. There is a life lesson in that huh?! Never give up, baby.

* Have you seen this website? Get your Gangsta Name. Mine (and it is sooooo flippin perfect) is: Sweet Hoopti Rida
