Random note: Spoils of War?

Ok spoils of war may be a bit  over the top,I love these tulips  got the on sale last Friday as
a birthday present to me.They actually lasted longer than I thought.I also got this bad boy(Canon camera)
in the mail last Friday I've already taken some pictures may even take we're in that getting  to know each other stage If I plan everything right I should have some new images up next week.Last but not least
a long over due pedicure.  I probably tramatized some poor nail tech, but I needed these  thangs worked On !
My pride was only hurt for 5 seconds when she broke out that drill .  It was worth it .  The butterfly is symbolic of my transformation.  I am no longer willing to live my life on someone else's terms.   I love blogging about the things I love to do! Also I wanted
to send a shout out to all the ladies at Pages In Time(ning group)   and Milliande (ning group)  The know
