51-Target Beauty Box

April 22, 2014

I received this about a month ago and have been meaning to post about it for weeks, but you know, life and stuff. Anyway, I don't have time for a proper post, so here are some pictures.:)

Contents of the box:
  • TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray (2.5 fl oz)
  •  L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (.22 fl oz)
  • Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo (1.7 oz)
  • COVERGIRL Smoochies Sizzle Gloss (.44 fl oz)
  • Jergens BB Cream Light (2 fl oz)
I have not tried any of these things yet, and I already gave the lip gloss away, but I am excited to use the mascara. Overall, I am happy with this box and definitely feel it was worth $5. :)

50-Happies & Crappies

Scissors and a Whisk: Happies and Crappies Link Up


- The weather. It has been so nice (and warm) this week and I've been able to take Carly on daily walks.:)
- I made an A on my fourth grad class. I really am surprised because I have so little time and motivation lately.
- On that note, I've had this whole week off from school and have done nothing productive. It's been great, lol.
- I'm back to blogging! I love to post random stuff that no one in real life wants to listen to, lol.


- My wisdom tooth is coming out (again!) and it hurts so much.:/
- Carly goes to sleep late and I am up by 6:30 a.m. so I am sleep deprived.:/
- My class starts on Sunday. This isn't really crappy; I'm just not feeling school right now.
- I love being able to stay at home right now that Carly is so little, but jeez is it boring when she's asleep!

49-Random Thursday: Movies I hate to admit I loved

February 20, 2014

I'm back! I'm not actually embarrassed that I love these movies. In fact, I had a really hard time paring this list down.
Mean Girls
I LOVE this movie! There are so many great quotes (which I say irl all the time) and Rachel McAdams is great in the role of Regina.

I say this to my kids ALL the time, lol.

Little Black Book
Brittany Murphy is one of my favorite actresses and I love all of her movies, but this one has Carly Simon's music in it, which I also love (and should probably also be embarrassed about).

I grew up watching this and still love it. I even force my kids to watch it. 

Troop Beverly Hills
Another movie I grew up watching. I didn't even realize that Jenny Lewis is in it, but I love her music.:)

She's Out of Control
Can you tell I love 80's movies? This one is fun and funny and probably every dad's worst nightmare, lol.

Meet the Robinsons
I like many cartoon movies, but this is one that I watched as an adult. I love the message in this movie; it's very heart warming. And I may or may not have cried during it.;)

Nacho Libre
I'm beginning to realize that I quote a lot of movies irl. Yes, this is another one, lol.

Malibu's Most Wanted
This is the one I should probably be most embarrassed about, but I love it. There are so many great quotes (which I also use irl) and it is so funny.

So, what embarrassing movies do y'all love?

48-2013 reflections

January 15, 2014

I'm back! I have lots to update about, but I want to post this first.:)
Favorite Makeup: Concealer. Pregnancy made my under eye circles worse and all I really tried to do was not look like I got punched in the eyes, lol. 

Favorite Book:I read so many good books this year. I can't choose just one (who can?), so top five (ok, so it's really seven. Whatever):

The Hunger Games Trilogy-
Skipping a Beat-
The Opposite of Love-
Night-Elie Wiesel
Favorite Song/Album: Don't judge me, lol.

Favorite Movie: I don’t watch a lot of movies (and I don't even remember all of them), but I have to choose Fast and Furious 6. I don't want to spoil it, but let me just say: Letty and Dom!

One thing you're grateful for: My family. My kids and boyfriend are the best.♥

Greatest Challenge: 2013 was actually a really good year for me. Yeah, there were moments when I freaked out, but overall life was good. :)
What are you looking forward to in 2013: Driving, watching my kids grow, doing well in school, spending time with my family, and getting married(!).
