I gave Cierra a few choices, and this is what came of it. The bodice of the dress will be this yummy snow-fur looking chiffon. It is super light-weight and not TOO slippery to sew.
The gathered sash of the dress and shoulder drapes will be this white sheer sparkly organza.

Beardy Update: After sitting all night and turning the tank lights on first thing in the morning, the temps are steady and PEERFFECT! Tomorrow is when Cierra n I'll buy our new bearded dragon, otherwise Saturday'll have to do.
Cierra's teacher just moved here last year from Germany (her hubby's in the AF). She's super nice and slightly spazzy so I'm happy that Cierra got a GOOD teacher. I told her that I will be subbing once my application goes through, and she said she'd make sure who needs to know........ .does know, so that I can sub primarily at Wherry and Sandia.
My car is FINALLY fixed. Manny's bestest friend Al came over tonight and saved the day by helping me figure out what was wrong with my damn car. Manny saved my summer though- he let me drive his car till I could fix mine. He makes sure I don't stress about anything...I'm really lucky.
My Human Resources class (that I was supposed to take every Thurs. night for 8 weeks) got cancelled do to lack of enrollment. I am bummed. I called UNM to enroll there for a Graduate level class and I have to get permission from Anderson School of Management. Friggin JOY. I go next Wednesday to speak with the advisor and 'apply'. The UNM campus irritates me when parking, but Oh well... I'll go next week. Cross your fingers for me. ....
Tomorrow should be a fun and FULL day! Takin Cierra to school, then getting my oil changed, n running that baby through the car warsh. (It's been sittin in my parking lot for like two months). I may or may not get baby beardy at that time, so I can surprise Cierra after school (haven't decided yet). Then I'll run the counter at the shop http://www.customtattoo-nm.com/CustomArtists.htm til five. (thanks you guys for lettin me, by the way). Finally I will pick up Cierra and GO HOME! Valency is gonna hopefully bring Talullah (her teeny, tiny,squeezy, scrumptious baby puppy) over--- I bought yummy cheese n bread.
I invited Arianne, Nancy (who lives in South Santa Fe) and my friend Allison (who is moving back to France in three weeks)- but the ballet is still out on them.
Oh! and if you're REALLY bored I am linking a 'lion fish' article that is also pretty neeto. They are reeking major havoc on the East Coast.

So we are almost done settin up the bearded dragon tank. We put everything in its place. Now just need to make sure that the heat side of the tank gets hot enough( 90-100 degrees), and the cool side stays cool enough(70). The UVB lamp has a bit of a flicker to it, so I may need to replace. The picture below hyper exaggerates the rays- so you can see them. (It also exaggerates my want for a big red stage looking curtain for the window at the end of my living room) Ha! Here is is, dark shot. You are probably driving yourself crazy lookin for our baby dragon- NOT there yet! I want to make sure the tamps and lighting are correct before buying. The heat lamp (left) corner of the tank doesn't quite get bright enough, so I'll either have to buy a light emitting heat lamp (right now I just have the ceramic lamp), or up the wattage in the long UVB bulb. Anyway, if you're wondering why all the hub-ub about the lighting, it is simple. Bearded dragons, as well as need UVB full spectrum lighting to help their bodies produce Vitamin D. The deficiency cannot be replaced by supplements. A Vitamin D and Calcium deficiency can cause poor eating habits, dragons that sleep all the time, defects, tremors and even death. Anyway... enough about that. I promise to post more pictures once we BUY! :o) ssSO Sssuper excited!

This is Cierra's "Twitch" impersonation. (from So You Think You Can Dance) He is her favorite,and I was laughin like crazy as she did this face to EVERYONE we stopped next to at stop lights. We were in the flamed out BUG, everyone loves looking at the car anyway, so the fact that she was doing this as well, was pretty priceless- I was entertainined anyway. lol
