Week’s End / 10 Things… (August 2014)

Hello hello hello!

It’s Friday so that means Week’s End, but it’s also the first of the month which means another dose of 10 Things…

Here we go!

1. I am THOROUGHLY looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning. Last Friday our AC decided it was going to freeze up and not work, so at the last minute we decided to go stay over at Hubs’ parent’s house. Thank goodness they are close by! We stayed there until Tuesday morning, when the AC was fixed and we could move back into our house. (I didn’t realize how many things I use on a daily basis. Meaning – there was SO much stuff to bring over. It was pure craziness.)

2. In case you were wondering – there was nothing wrong with the AC motor like we originally thought. We had a leaky pipe that leaked all of our Freon which caused our unit to freeze up. It’s all fixed now!

3. Fritos BBQ Honey Twist are pretty much the bomb diggity.

4. Peanut will be SEVEN months old in a week. How?!

5. I’ve started Christmas shopping. (I say I’m going to start early every year, and this year I’m finally doing it!)

6. I really want to post a “101 Things in 1001 Days” list, but it’s taking me forever to come up with 101 things…

7. I wanted to take Peanut to the pool a lot this Summer but we have yet to go. At all.

8. Oh! Hubs’ aunt had open heart surgery and she is doing well! Yay!

9. Is it 4:30 PM yet? (No, it’s 10:27 AM.)

10. I have a lot to do this weekend.

Week's End

I try not to be a “complainer”, I really do. But sometimes life is very overwhelming!

- Please pray for a family member who is having open heart surgery today.

- The dumb AC is on the frits AGAIN! We have someone coming to look at it on Monday. I’m very grateful that the unit is under a home warranty, it’s just frustrating that the company will do anything they possibly can to fix it, opposed to just replacing it. It just means that we have to keep calling, over and over.

- I don’t know what I did, but my back hurts! I’ve been doing a lot of “lifting with my back” lately. I know that’s not good, but it’s kind of hard not to when you have to lean over to pick the baby up – bath tub, play pen, etc.

- We are still on the hunt for a truck for Hubs. I try not say I hate things, but I LOATHE vehicle shopping! He has had about four trucks swept from under him. He called and called and called about specific trucks, said we would be there right after work, called before leaving the house – truck is still there, halfway there and we get a call that the truck sold. Like, I know they’re just salespeople but GR!

Okay, I think I’m done complaining. :]

IPSY – July 2014

IPSY

Here’s what I got:

Super cute, bright pink, zip top make up bag.

Four sample sized products:
5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15
Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray Conditioning & Texturizing Spray
Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in Pretty Pink

One FULL Size product:
Pop Beauty Sunkissed Bronzer – value $10

So for $10 I actually got about $10+ dollars worth of product.
As you can see, I only got one full sized product this time, but the sample products are actually really nice sizes. None of them are “one use” sizes. I’m sure they have a value, but I’m not all about dividing the full size product price by the amount of content and then multiplying by the size of the sample. Blah blah. I got more than my money’s worth so YAY!

My verdict: I really like this bag! The pebbled, matte pink make up bag is really cute!
The 5-in-1 BB cream eyeshadow is a really nice shade.
I probably won’t try the dark tanning oil, but hey, this is only my second box and I can tweak my preferences.
I can’t wait to try the beach spray! I’m really excited about it!
The Pixi mini balm is fabulous! I love the shade of pink – it’s girly but still very neutral. It’s a tad bit drying, but I just put chapstick under (or over) and ta-da! Problem solved.
I don’t use bronzer, but this sparkly-ish brown would make a really pretty eye shadow!

All in all, this bag is a win!

 

Sharing My Weekend – My Mom Was Here!

That tired/wiped out look pretty much describes all of us this Monday morning. We had such a good, fun, long weekend with my mom here! (She’s actually still here. She’s leaving today when I get off of work.) I took Wednesday-Sunday off so it really was a long weekend!

Wednesday:
We went to Once Upon A Child to get some clothes for Peanut. Then we went to Ross, Target and Carter’s. While we were at Target I convinced my mom to upgrade her phone to the iPhone 5c! She didn’t like it at first but now she loves it! ;]

Thursday:
Peanut had his six month check up! He weighed 15.15 pounds and was 25.5 inches long. Happy, healthy baby! He barely even cried when he got his shots! After his appointment, we went to Old Navy and then to the mall to eat, shop, and just walk around. On the way home I made a quick stop at Target.

At his six month check up.

Friday:

We went to Five Below so my mom could get a case for her phone. Then we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and my mom got us one of those single brew Keurig things. We are now a part of “The Keurig Club” Ha! Then we went to TJ Maxx to shop around. (I love TJ Maxx.)

Saturday:
- We drove around because Hubs is looking for a used truck. (No luck.) Then we went to Hubs’ parents house for a cook out and then out for ice cream. Yum!
There was a “super moon” or something like that and it was pretty cool.

Sunday:

My mom watched Peanut while Hubs and I ran to the gun shop and the grocery store. When we got back my mom and I went and got manicures and pedicures.

Now it’s Monday and I’m at work while my mom is watching Peanut. She’ll head home once I get home from work/trying to make a stop at the DMV. Gr, wish me luck!

Full belly!
