Single best vacation ever. We stayed at Paradise Pier in the Disneyland Resort and they had a roof top pool where we enjoyed our afternoon breaks.

I got a great tan, we did some awesome shopping (I got a Jack Skellington alarm clock--one of the traditional ones with bells on top), ate some great food, and had the time of our lives!

A Disneyland employee told me, very seriously, that I was eating my churro upside down. I actually stopped to check. So this is me proving that a churro can be eaten from both ends.

We are SO getting annual passes for Christmas. We didn't get our fill.

Now that I'm back from vacation and I came home to a big box of art supplies, I'm getting started on art again. :) Stay tuned!

I apologize. I am still on vacation.

Ya know how I haven't blogged about anything in a long time?

That's because I've been on vacation. And will continue to be on vacation until September 12th. I have a lot of new art supplies coming my way, though, so new things will begin to pop up soon. I have many, many ideas.

As a testament to my vacation, my Etsy bill was $4.00 this month. That is how much of a vacation I am on. In June, it was $90.00 with sales and renewals and new items. This month: $4.00. Pleasant financial surprise/ugly reminder that I have not done a thing with my business for two months.

I have not been paying any attention to anything except getting semi-swimsuit-ready. (Yes, at the end of the summer. Paradise Pier has a roof-top pool with waterslides and we like to take breaks from Disneyland crowds from 2-5 p.m.) Still not exactly happy with my thighs (ugh) but at least my arms look good and I'm tan (because I have braved the world in my Victoria's Secret push-up tankini two weekends in a row now) and I've still got three days to do lunges and squats and calf-raises and Jillian Michaels workouts.

That's all for now. Just thought I'd let you all know that I will be back soon, just not yet. I haven't forgotten about my blog or my blog friends or even my newsletter--though that has suffered from my summer vacation as well.

Also, I now love yoga. Just throwing that out there. I can wrap my hands around the bottoms of my feet. And I can get into crane for like, 2 seconds before I fall flat on my face (into my "crane pose safety pillow" to protect my face, of course). I think I deserve a trophy.

Though my crane is not nearly as pretty as this lady's (and where is her safety pillow?!):
