So glad I spent all that time on my hair today

100% humidity has a certain way of FRO-ing out my hair. I seriously could've saved a lot of money on perms in the 80's if I'd have just moved to the coast. Live and learn.

Here's a few Ellie-isms from today.
At Seaworld: Mom, I wanna go home (and didn't we all know it).

At the tide pools in La Jolla: Mom, I wanna swim on a whale out there.

In the car on the way home: Nic, your face is green. What face is my...what face is my...what face is my? What color is my face? (she did this about 15 times and somehow it got funnier every time she said it).

You see how she's sitting there (ignore all facial expressions,please - they're beside the point), that is how she felt ALL day. Little Miss Do My Own Thang. She is so grounded from family vacations until she is, oh, about SEVEN.

As a side note: I lost my favorite earring getting this shot, was it worth it? Yeah, that's a big fat no - unless, of course, Mr. O takes me back to New York to get another pair - then it's totally worth it. I thought I took it surprisingly well (only said one bad word) and laughed it off.

Oh, how I WISH I were there! Beautiful. I looks like you are having so much fun, even if your little one wants to come home.

I'm sitting here watching snow falling. Yes, I wish I were kidding.
