Mama Wants some New Ink

Hello friends!! I am going to share with you my latest business. My birthday is in a few weeks - yes another year closer to 30 - damn I think I just got another wrinkle and 30 new gray hairs. So the Huz - oooh that makes him sound so bad a**, anyway he asked me what I want. Well mama needs some new ink but Mr. needs a little convincing since my dude charges some serious scratch - that's right I called him mine but really anyone can go to him. Peeps I am an artist and I refuse to go let some stupid head who woke up one day and thought "I will tattoo people for a living, yeah that makes me cool" trace a photo copy of some junky design that half the state of MA has on their person. I go to an ARTIST who actually has a clue what the hell he is doing. Hey if I am going to have something on my body for the rest of my life - I do plan on sticking around this place for a good long time - so my ink can't be trash. It has been a few years since the last one so it is about time I went back for a little self torture. I still have not fallen in love with anything in particular but I know what I want. I am trying to design something with influences from the Art Nouveau era and has a bird or birds in it. I want it to fit on my right shoulder - kind of like a cap-sleeve. I simply will not settle for anything but the best!!! I will let you know how things turn out.

Breakfast this morning was yogurt, oat bran & PB Puffins.

Around 10 I decided to go run my tush off again - well the booty is still there, if I got rid of it the Huz would disown me. He will settle for a flat chest but not a flat a** - hey I need to give him something to roll his eyes around. Just so you know how bootilicious he finds me check out the proof I found on my camera last night when I downloaded my photos. This is what he was doing while I was doing some blading. BTW I did another 8 miler.

I find pictures of my rear end on the camera all the time - he is a sneaky little devil. I am sometimes amazed at the poses he can catch me in - I didn't even know my body did that.

For lunch today I tried a new brand of tuna that I found at Whole Foods the other day. This was so good. The tuna stayed in large chunks and it was not at all fishy. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it.

I mixed the tuna with an apple, 1/4 cup cooked brown rice (it was cold), a mini box of raisins and 1/2 oz. chopped walnuts. Super delicious!!

I also had some raw baby carrots.

The sun is shining and it is a hot one here in good old Bellingham. I am not sure what the rest of the day is going to be like but I know there is laundry to be done - yeah fun, fun, fun I just love laundry - not really. Enjoy your day.

Ha! That's too funny about the pictures... hey, running is definitely great for the booty.

Looking forward to seeing what you decide on for your tattoo :)

I really enjoy reading your blog, I think I stumbled into it from Kath's or somewhere else..

I just wanted to comment on your tat idea. I recently got a kind of "cap sleeve" that I really have ended up loving. it shows up just enough under my tshirt, looks great with a tube top/tank but I can hide it when I need to. I drew mine myself and wanted a traditional mendhi look. Check out the pics!

I can't wait to see what you design! And I definitely agree that its worth to pay a good price...
