Bead & Jewelry Linky Love

Superman now lives at our house. (To be honest, it's a little difficult to distinguish him from the Short One when they're asleep - along with the gazillion other stuffed toys that the SO likes to put in bed with him.) A friend of mine tipped us off to a special deal Six Flags was running this week for season passes, so we decided to try it this summer.

The SO appears to have all of the makings of a true coaster aficionado - much to his Dad's satisfaction. (I personally have terrible motion sickness and have been known to fall prey to it even on normal airplane descents, so I'm happy he didn't inherit that from me.)

He also was able to exchange high fives with Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl and Scooby-Doo during our visit, which was a definite plus in the SO's books. As you can see from the photo, he's currrently working on maintaining his secret identity.

I hope everyone else had a nice weekend. I can't believe it's Bead & Button Show week, finally! I'll be sharing my 2010 Bead Dreams entries Monday or Tuesday, so please do check back. In the meantime, here are your bead and jewelry links for the week:
