Makeup Monday

Good morning hope everyone had a great weekend! It's Makeup Monday and today I just have to tell you about one of my new favorites. It came in the last Birchbox shipment I got and before I go on if you have not signed up for this box it is amazing and you should check it out HERE. Okay so this time they sent Jouer Lip Enhancer 

Okay it is official I love this stuff and will be ordering the full size best part it is only $14.00! It moisturizes and makes your lips look fuller I put it on now everyday before whatever lipstick / gloss I'm going to wear currently loving the Clinique Chubby Stick in Graped Up.
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Graped Up

What is your current must have?

Friday, September 23, 2011


I don't know about any of you but I am so glad it's FRIDAY! It has been a crazy week and I want/need a break. I better enjoy this one because there is something planned already for 3 weekends in October. This weekend is also very special because Sunday is my 7 year anniversary. I need to remind B that I want to hear my song that day:) He sang "Always and Forever" to me at our wedding so sweet and he has the most amazing voice!
This is Bryan and I on our wedding day wow seems like forever ago (and looks like it to wow me at 23) in some ways and in others time has just seemed to fly.  We have definitely had our ups and downs just like any couple and more arguments that I could even begin to count but at the end of the day I still have my best friend. He understands me in a way few people in my life actually do. He puts up with me the good bad and ugly and loves me anyway. It is constant give and take and something you have to work on everyday. After I Do does not mean happily ever don't get me wrong I love a good fairy tale but that's just not real life you have to work on it. There are so many things that only he can truly understand about me and I think that some of the situations we have had where most people grow apart has actually brought us closer. People from the outside looking in just can't truly understand but he is the only one that knows how it felt every month when once again I'm not pregnant. I may get angry, mad or whatever but I can't imagine my life with anybody else. So I just want to say that I love you Bryan always and forever!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Fabulous Fall Challenge Day 3

Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge
So I'm linking up with Neely & Amber for the Fall Blog Challenge today is what do you do for Halloween.
When we lived in town we just stayed home to pass out candy to the kids (and of course there were always some adults that showed up wanting candy not dressed up and no we did not know them.. really???) Since we moved we have not done this because the only ones that stop by are friends/ family with children.
As I have mentioned before sadly as an adult I have never dressed up for Halloween so this year I AM! Hopefully B will do it with me so it can be a couple thing but if not I'm still gonna do it! So here are some of the costumes i have been looking at what are your opinions???
These are from Party City
Women's Flight Dress and Men's Flight Suit Top Gun Couples Costumes
okay in case you didn't know I LOVE TOP GUN! But I don't think I want to wear anything that short!
Elite Southern Belle and Gunslinger Couples Costumes
I have to say this one is my FAVORITE!!!! How beautiful is that dress!
Roman Empress and Centurion Couples Costumes
This is my 2nd Favorite
Now the next one is what I have always wanted to dress up but I know I never will there is no way I'm showing my stomach and legs like tha! That is unless someone wants to plastic surgery before then lol. But really how cute is that!
Adult I Dream of Jeannie Costume
What are your suggestions / opinions?

Ever have those days you feel like your all alone? Well that's been me  lately far to often. It seems like when one thing goes wrong everything just starts falling down around me. I swear the only person you can count on is yourself. People say things then don't do them I'm tired of being angry or having my feelings hurt over it.  I want to move but B says no still gonna keep on asking though maybe one day he will change his mind. Oh well maybe tomorrow will be better. Sorry just had to vent somewhere today.
