Favorite toy...Peddler's Mall...happy hair

So, what was (or is) your favorite toy?  That's what we want to know over at TAAFOMFT.  At the moment, my favorite toy is my iPhone.  It's my camera, my social network, my games...oh, and it's also a phone.  :)  I've been saving this telephone game card that I received from Martha some time ago for just such an occasion.  So make sure you head over to the blog and join us!

(Also, if you participated in the last challenge, you really need to see this post.)  :)

While we're on the topic of toys, I met Mike at Lowe's after he did some work at school today. We went fan-shopping, then he went to the library to work on his class. I had a little over an hour before my hair appointment, so I went to the Peddler's Mall (of course).  One of the booths had these:

I was all about the Fisher-Price Little People when I was little.  We had the barn and the school...I think.  (Mom, feel free to verify this.)  Oh, and these two lovelies followed me home.  Five dollars well spent.

Oh, and that hair appointment I mentioned?  I may have lost a few pounds while there.  I haven't had my hair cut since December.  It feels so much better.  I was getting tired of long hair in this heat and humidity.  Plus, my hair does this weird thing when it gets to a certain length -- it all flips in one direction.  No curling iron can fix it at that point.

New Haircut

I hope you all have a great day!  Tomorrow's a big day in the Bess household...well, I think it's a big deal.  Mike never gets excited about it.

I had both of those Little People toys!! I used to love them so much. The Little People stuff is so disappointing these days, compared to what it used to be.

Love the Kodak instant camera, too!
