I'm Baaaack!

I'm back! This has been a super hard week for my family, but we are just trying to keep in mind that she's better off now :) Thanks to ya'll for all the sweet words and encouragment!

My sister and I got matching tattoos of our grandma's intials with a little heart.. I LOVE it, and I think my grandma would too. When I got my first tattoo (the sparrow) and showed her, she said I should have gotten her name instead:) Well, now I have it Granny!

The place we went [Knight Times] was HORRIBLE and I will never ever go there again. We went Friday night, and they said about 40 dollars but they were busy so to come back at 12 on Saturday. We get there at 12:10 Sat., they tell us 65 dollars. Boo. But we really wanted it right then so we said okay. The guy makes us pay, and doesn't even draw it up first...ooookay, but then he's like you guys are going to have to come back in about 45 minutes because he had to set up and eat lunch. WHAT? If you open at 12, shouldn't you eat lunch BEFORE you open. We were so irritated. Finally around 1:45, they bring us back and the guy who did our tattoos was really off. He said the N word [my sister's baby is mixed], talked about smoking weed, told us how he judges people and if he doesn't like the way they look- he ups the price, had his girlfriend,who didn't work there, sitting by him the whole time and kept saying how he loved the shirt she was wearing. So innappropriate. But we ended up getting what we wanted, and now we know for next time to wait and get a appointment somewhere else.

And my whole family... I included names because there are so many of us! Ha! Yes. My mom did dress all the little kids alike. She's funny like that :)

Well... I'm off to catch up on everyone's blogs. Please keep sending prayers and thoughts for my sweet grandpa :)

On another note - I love your hair down. And, I'll be there in 2 days!!!!! Are you still game??
