Beautiful Week

After our Disney trip I have been a bit of a homebody, partly due to weather but also an overdose of people at Disney. A week of being stuck indoors left my legs rather campy so I was very glad to get back out and exercising this week.
We started out the week with a lazy canoe trip with a group of friends. The water was a bit dark because of so much rain the week before but it was a beautiful mild day and we couldn't have asked for better weather. A special treat while paddling was the owls, so many owls.We heard them calling from both sides of the river and saw a handful fly across. Most of the calls and the owls we spotted were barred owls but when Hubby and I took a small detour by ourselves we saw a big great horned in flight. 
Last summer when we canoed the Wacissa we didn't see a single alligator, this time we saw lots.
This fella was hanging out on the floating platform at Big Blue (a big spring and popular hangout on the Wacissa). He was only about 5-6 feet so when he realized our group was all bigger than him he crawled into the water and swam away to hid in a patch of river weeds. After he was a good distance away we claimed the platform and ate our lunches.
The trip was great but I think I tweaked my bad knee a bit, it has been a little sore in the joint this week but nothing is swollen so I'm not too worried. I ordered a compression sleeve for it to see if that helps, I have a brace somewhere but klepto kitten always steals and hides it.
Today I cut my walk back a little so I could pick up a friend for lunch who was in a car accident and currently without a car. It feels like forever since I got to dress up and go out. I finally got to wear this beautiful dress that a friend gave me. Isn't it perfect? It combines so many of my favorite things: sailor style dresses, mermaids, and tattoos. Now I have a super bad "need" to get one of these lovely ladies tattooed, I've wanted a mermaid for ages but this may finally be the year, I just need to save up a bit.

Ooh, ouch. Hair color touch up is next week. Been putting it off because I plan on going swimming this weekend.

Can you tell I just made another Colourpop order? I've been hooked since a girlfriend gave me a color that didn't work on her. This was my first time using the brow color and wow, this stuff is amazing. I've been using powder to fill but I'll never be able to go back to it now. I also tried out their gel liner, I'm a bit out of practice with a liner brush (and I need to get a stiffer one to use with this). They were out of the two colors I really wanted (Fast Lane and Bee Sting) but I took a chance on the darkened forest green and I really like. I wish I had gotten a picture that really showed it off but I'm sure I'll get better shots in the future. I tossed the Lippie Stix in my bag at the last moment on a whim, I have been looking for a slightly darker red than I normally wear and this is just the color I've been looking for.

I can't wait for this weekend, it's the bachelorette party for two of my sweet friends. It's tropical themed and I can't wait to dress up and wish them all the happiness in the world.
