Ernie Comes home (finally!!) ;)

This weekend I tasted a Green Tea Frappuccino from Starbucks, and I'm in love. It's the best :) With all the "frap" I'm sure it takes any and all nutrition benefits away, but it's totally worth it.

Anyway, that was the highlight of my Easter. Saturday I got up at 5:30 in the morning, which is just wrong!! It should be against the law to be up that early on the weekend. I was trying to make it out to my birth fathers (or as Andrew likes to call him now - my "bio-dad" - which sounds so weird!) for an Easter egg hunt they were having locally at 9 am. I was early, but we were still late to the hunt. So it was all in vain. Ah well, what can you do?

All in all it wasn't a bad day, just a little exhausting because I had brought both of my mutts, who are huge pains, and then also having to keep an eye on Audrey most of the time. She worries me because she is so fearless, and just plain ornery.

I did sneak out at one point and went to a new shop in town, "trade post" something..I can't remember the exact name. Anyway, it's a used shop with a bunch of cool antiques, and other rare things found at auctions and stuff. The prices were great too.

I'm proud to say that I finally got my turtle I was wanting for months now!! I mean, sure he's got a glass shell that lights up from a light bulb from the inside..but regardless, he's a turtle, and he's mine. Of course I named him Ernie. I will post pics of him later. :) I got him at the shop for $10! I think it was meant to be.

So those were the highlights of my weekend, at least it wasn't totally boring.

Yesterday the girls and I stopped at a scenic overlook right outside Manhattan and I took some pics, they turned out pretty good, I'll post them later too. I have one pic "as is" and then another one where I adjusted the color and made the sky purple and the trees and hills a lush green. I have to say, I like it better with the purple sky!
