On a heartfelt note.. your friend Mark is in my prayers its always hard when one loses a family member. God Bless and just remember he is in his paradise now.

Will keep Mark and his family in my thoughts and prayers.

Wow! Those colors are bright. I can't believe you got all that Easter Egg dye for $5.00. I was going to call you a dye-hard-slut. But I'll refrain.

Love those colors - and does anyone else wonder why one person has that much easter egg dye? What did they buy it all for??

Leaving for Vegas this Sunday..(WOO!!) and staying at the Venetian! (although, that really would have been weird if I was staying at the same hotel...)

Dyeing your own is a lot of fun. I just tried it for the first time on Sunday and had some great results! Enjoy.
