Too Faced

Let's be honest here, I have a serious problem or more of a serious obsession...

with makeup. Well mostly Too Faced products. So whenever the new Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar was announced I was ecstatic. As soon as I could order it on Sephora I did and then I waited, and waited, and waited. Finally today it arrived and....
it looked like this. Actually not even like this. This is after I spent forever cleaning it up. Actually it looked like a black sandy mess when I first opened the box. Whoever packed this needs to relearn how to pack a palette that is going to be shipped across the country. Seriously, there wasn't any packing material in the box except one tiny square of bubble wrap on the bottom of the box. Come on Sephora! Ugh! They are sending me another and lets hope that this time it makes it all in one piece. The waiting again is going to be killer though. So disappointing. I know.. no one probably actually cares about this except my select few friends that are also makeup hoarders. Not everyone has had the opportunity to have their lives changed by a Chocolate Bar. :)

Anyways, we are on the home stretch as far as moving goes now. All of the last of our stuff is pretty much in the trailer but we have been iced in by the ice storm going on here in Odessa. Also let's talk about this ice storm business for a second. I thought people were messing around with me when they told me that they receive these here. Ice storms are a little frightening. I can drive in the snow, the rain, you name it but there is no way I am leaving my little niche in this stuff again. This whole thing doesn't even make sense to me or Baby Daddy. We both are having a hard time understanding how it could be so cold here, with some kind of moisture falling from the sky yet, it's not snow. Shouldn't it be snow? (Don't start rattling off a bunch of meteorology jargon to me either. Just let me have my rant.) And drivers... ok, I thought that Texas drivers were scary before... this is like Ruidoso after a snowstorm during Christmas break times fifty when they are all coming off the ski mountain and no one owns a four wheel drive. Just saying. I have to get out of here ASAP.

Also, would you like to hear a fun story.... According to my neighbor we literally dodged a bullet a few nights ago. While we were in New Mexico someone decided to go up and down our street and shoot every one's vehicles up. Thankfully we had both of our pickups with us and they missed Baby Daddy's work pickup but man... I am going to be so glad to be out of this place in a few days. (And we live in the nice part of town!)

Cue Phil Collins... So take, take me home.....

The semester is over! Thank you Baby Jesus! Now the fun part begins... moving.

"I'm going to burn all of this $h!t to the ground next time we have to move because I AM NOT moving all of these things again.", I say this every single time we get ready to move and every time we move guess what happens.....nothing. I pack every single little nic-nac and useless item we own. *banging head on desk* Why? Why must we have so many things? It is a little alarming to me that we own enough crap to fill a three bedroom house yet we do not actually own a three bedroom house. Also, Baby Daddy and I have been married two years and have lived in four houses. FOUR kids! F-O-U-R! About to be five. We must enjoy this sick punishment in which we keep dealing out to ourselves. I don't have any other way to explain it. *sigh*However we did find a house....
There it is... can you see it? Hehe. So our "new house" is actually very old and in need of some SERIOUS t.l.c. but before we discuss what is wrong with this house lets talk about what is awesome about this house. First of all, do you see my neighbors? No? Oh... that's right... I DO NOT HAVE NEIGHBORS. Well not "real" neighbors. I mean people live down the road from us but not close enough that my dogs are going to go bat shit crazy every time one of them walks outside of their house.  Not close enough that I have to hear them walking past my bedroom windows with their idiot girlfriend who laughs like a dolphin at all hours of the night. No... my neighbors are cows and cranes and Canadian geese (depending on the time of the year), and quite frankly I enjoy listening to them. If you are wondering about all of that blank space around us, that is the cotton field that my house sits in the middle of. We were lucky enough to find a rental right smack dab in the middle of a farm.

Also price was a major deciding factor. Well not really, I was probably going to go with this anyways but we will be paying $1,200 less every month compared to our current house and almost all of our utilities are included in our rent. So yeah.... Odessa rentals are a RIP OFF.

We also really loved this house because they are down with us parking all of our crap, three vehicles, the glamper, Baby Daddy's trailer, and they are cool with all of my Fuzzies! That means it is time for my Junk Yard Cat to come home! I am so happy to have my DaBear kitten back and I am pretty sure my parents are ready too. Well... maybe Mom. Surprisingly Dad is objecting to this because they are now officially "buddies".
However, I have to admit that even with all of the things that we are looking forward to, there are some negatives to this house. For one it is super small. Most of our things are going to storage which isn't entirely bad because honestly I have wanted to get rid of a lot of things but we will have to pay for a storage until we can whittle all of the things down. Also the house is not in great shape. It needs new flooring throughout the whole house and we are going to have to paint it at some point. Who ever lived there previously tried to cover up stuff on the walls by taking glossy white paint and painting over whatever it was on what is more of a matte white so there are awful looking paint marks everywhere and if you have ever walked into a house with my husband you would know that things like this drive the contractor in him absolutely CRAZY. The good news is, the farmer that owns the house has given me the green light to do whatever I want and if you know me, then you know that I have an obsession with painting. The poor Capitan house was constantly being painted.

The other con is... we live across the road from a dairy. Well, it's not that big of a con if you consider how great the dove hunting will be right there basically out our back door but the smell. Eek. That should be interesting. I keep thinking to myself, "Self, you grew up in Clayton, not even that... you grew up spending all of your out of school/away from the ranch time with your Dad either in a corn field cutting silage or in the semi at the feedlot this should be like coming home." I am also a little worried about how my husband will end up feeling about this. Even though he is rugged and outdoorsy I am not sure how he will adapt to this detail. Hopefully well because I am NOT moving back into town.

On another note... BabyLove and I decided to start a new tradition together. After lots of Pinterest research we decided to start a 12 Nights of Christmas reading tradition. I purchased 12 Christmas books and wrapped each. Every night starting on December 12th Baby chooses one and unwraps it so I can read it to him. So far it has been so much fun and I think he is really enjoying it. On the first night we read "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer's Slide and Find".
Daddy and Tiberius helped pick out the first book.
He loves interactive books... 
And the Island of Misfit toys train and plane. (of course)

Tonight was our second night and unfortunately Daddy wasn't able to be home because he ended up working late. Tiberius was still an excellent helper and listened to us read, "The Polar Bear who Saved Christmas"
He opened this one all by himself after I got it started for him. Momma tends to go a little crazy with the tape. 
Little Smarty Pants Kid! 
This was such a fun book! 

It worked out perfectly that we started this on the 12th. Apparently I still suck at math because my husband pointed out to me that we would actually be done on the 23rd with all of our books and not on the 24th like I was thinking but we open presents on Christmas Eve so he will be to busy with new toys and will not care about reading I assume. Stay tuned for more 12 Nights of Christmas reading posts. I was able to find some pretty neat books this year!

#575 #505 ... For life yo!

I've been on a little bit of a blogging hiatus lately because things have been super busy. Also, I'm a little bit lazy. My apologies. Between school, raising a one year old (Note: I have yet to come to terms with this.), Baby Daddy's work schedule, and being stuck in Tex-ass I just haven't found the energy to sit down and write. This month has also been a little hard for me. A year ago we lost our sweet Grammy and it still feels like it was yesterday because not only am I lazy, I'm also really, really, really bad at mourning.

So...let's catch up!

Bam! Those are my grades right now. With roughly 46 days left out of about 110  I am kind of patting myself on the back right now. Let me tell you... it has been a struggle. Do you know what's harder then going to school with a newborn? Going to school with a one year old, obviously. My sweet little boy is EVERYWHERE! In fact if he were here right now this blog would look like this... jljg liYA;OYzriysiY'V$ua"ciyYA'VU4" u"ouvvvcUDOKH;Ok Y"oy. Do you know why? Because the Smarty Pants has recently discovered that Momma's laptop is the coolest thing EVER and also not something he is allowed to play with. Which makes it that much cooler. Thankfully he is snug in his bed with his little Max the Raccoon and Pooh Bear!

Speaking of the Smarty Pants, let us now address the elephant in the room. The fact that I am now a mother of a one year old. Let me tell you folks... I never in a million years imagined this. I imagined myself pregnant once, I imagined myself with a baby, but now I am freaking out. Holy shit y'all... I have a one year old. One of these days I'll have a five year old and then ... a teenager. It's a strange feeling to wake up and wonder how your parents did it. Also, if I am about to pay for my raising which I think I am, I would just like to offer my parents an apology for being such a brat. I called my Dad and Step-Mom the other night so I could wish my Step-Mom a happy birthday and while I was on the phone with my Dad I told him about Reeves recent little defiant streak he's been going through. Baby thinks that it is hilarious to feed the dogs. Being as how Murphy has the most sensitive stomach ever I try to keep an eye on this. The other day I told Baby not to feed the dogs and I know he knows what this means. We have been over it a million times. So what does he do... he picks up another piece of pasta and throws it on the ground while staring me down.  Do you know what my Dad had to say about this... he laughed and said... "Yessss.... it's a beautiful thing Baby!" I have to admit though... I am a little excited my kid exhibits so much of my personality because I am hoping it makes him tough and stubborn. I hope that my son will be the kind of person that never let's anyone walk all over him and he'll be brave enough to stand up for himself and others. My own little John Wayne.

So now I am going to be really real with you guys... You may already know this about me but here we go.... I. hate. Texas. It's true. I came here with an open mind but I'm not impressed. Here is the thing, Baby Daddy has an awesome job here that has allowed me to stay home and focus on Baby Love and school and for that we are so grateful but come on... this place is not my favorite. Here are some of the reasons why I am NOT in love with this place:

1.Public Land (or lack of)- Come on y'all! There isn't anywhere to hunt here and you want me to pay how much for a lease??? Maybe I am spoiled rotten after growing up in my little mountain paradise or my HiLo country but you have to admit, this is ridiculous. I was under the impression y'all loved to kill shit.
2. Gun laws- Do I really need to go into this? I will give you a little cred on the whole castle law thing but otherwise...
3. Texas highways/drivers- What is up with all of these frontage roads. Can't we be consistent? Also... blinkers! They are useful, they could save your life, use them.
4. Sports and Shopping- Ok I do love shopping but there isn't anything else better to do here and after awhile it get's old.
5. Let's just admit it... if Texas was so wonderful Texans wouldn't spend their weekends traveling to New Mexico. (Credit for this one goes to my husband for recently pointing it out to me.)
6. Area Codes- I come from the land that has two... I am SO confused with all these damn area codes!

I'm going to stop there before I get myself in trouble. Basically I just miss my state. This is the first time I have ever lived outside of New Mexico and it will be the last. It's just to far from family and home and quite frankly, we don't feel comfortable here.We like to hunt and fish, we like to take a drive up the mountain on a Sunday morning and not have to worry about traffic and a million other people.

Anyways... that's how I feel about that.

As for missing Grammy, it's not getting any easier. In fact it seems like it's getting harder. It kind of feels like someone just keeps ripping the band-aid off every time we all think it's going to be ok.

Thursday, August 14, 2014


Crazy things have been happening here at Casa de Lopez lately. For one... BabyLove thinks he is a grown up these days. What?! Where has the time gone? Pretty soon my sweet little babe will be a year old and his mother is still trying to figure out how we got here so fast. Wasn't it just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital? Wasn't it just yesterday that I spent every extra moment that I wasn't screeching and freaking out apologizing to my nurses and midwives for screaming out the F word over and over again? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was certain those 36 hours of waiting, and pain, and hallucinating were never going to end? Wasn't it just yesterday I was asking God to please let me meet my BabyLove face to face? For the record... as crazy and painful as that whole experience was, it was still the best 36 hours of my life because I learned so much about myself, my loving, loyal, strong husband, and my amazingly tough kid. Also... has anyone else ever reached a level of pain in which they began to hallucinate? That was the craziest experience of my life and something that I did not even know was possible. With all of my back surgeries I have never been that out of it.

Anyways... speaking of painful situations... BabyLove has finally pushed that first little tooth through and the second one is almost there. We have had a few bad days and nights but really, he has been pretty tough. I however have been a big ball of emotions. He is beginning to look more and more like a little boy and less like a baby boy. Tonight Baby Daddy said... "I just can't believe how much he has changed. He doesn't even remind me of the baby we brought home." Well yeah... because he is every where these days! We have a really long hallway in our house and no joke the kid can crawl down it within just seconds and he pulls up on everything. In just the last few days he has began trying to stand from a seated position without pulling up on anything. The personality and attitude he has developed is also something else...
Generally he is a very happy baby but I will admit that he most definitely has a Reeves' temper. I was really hoping he would be laid back like his Daddy but unfortunately he is just like his Momma in that department. Either way... he is still the most amazing person I know.

School will be starting soon and I recently received all of my books in the mail! (and a new NMSU sweater because obviously I needed another one to go with all of the others.)
I am a little nervous about how this semester is going to go but I am trying to stay ahead by reading as much as I can now. The other night I was laying in bed reading when Baby Daddy came in and made fun of me for it. 

Baby Daddy: What are you reading?
Me: A book about teaching to juveniles behind bars.
Baby Daddy: Are you going to teach to juveniles behind bars? 
Me: Well I wasn't planning on it but it does seem interesting, I think I could probably actually enjoy a job like that. 
Baby Daddy: Doesn't sound interesting. Sounds like a bad idea. Where did you even get this book from? 
Me: It's one of my textbooks for a special topics class. 
Baby Daddy: Wait.... you are reading a textbook? 
Me: Yes.
Baby Daddy: School hasn't even started yet. 
Me: I know. 
Baby Daddy: Wow.... you are like the biggest nerd I know. 
Me: Hey now! 
Baby Daddy: Nope it's official... I married a nerd. My wife is a nerd. 
Me: Shut it. 
Baby Daddy: Whateva.... nerd. 

He thinks he is sooo clever. Anyways... like I was saying, I am nervous because my child is so active these days and I am not sure if I am prepared yet for all of the sleepless study nights that are ahead of me. I have to keep reminding myself... "Self... you are SOOOOOO close to the end."

Where have I been?

It's been almost two months since the last time I posted...Sorry about that. Apparently I have been every where but here. So... let's talk about what happened while I was gone!

First of all my little sister got hitched y'all. I still can not even believe that this happened. Can someone please pinch me and wake me up from this dream? Just yesterday she was this cute little blonde headed ball of annoying little sister and then... a beautiful bride? I don't even know how this happened. The wedding however was beautiful and Baby Love stole the show for a second by riding in all kick-backed-like in his little red wagon, tons of tears were shed, I of course delivered a wonderful maid of honor speech in which I threatened my new brother-in-law with my chihuahua-ness, and a good time was had by all. After the wedding though Baby Daddy and I decided we were in need of a mini vacation/late anniversary trip and let me tell you... WE WERE!

We enjoyed a day in the middle of the Santa Fe Plaza, did some fishing in the Jemez, and saw a lot of family including our sweet little Grandma Mae and Grumpy Grandpa. (Also I decided that one day I want to be a rich, yuppie, weekend warrior, hippie, ranch owner who hangs out at the La Fonda on the Plaza sipping Blue Winged Olive from the Wines of the San Juan. I know... that probably sounds taboo to everyone but I don't even care. Make fun of me all you want but it sounds like heaven.) On the way home we picked up a couple of stowaways....
More Aunts!!! We love the Aunts! The Aunts (my sisters-in-law) stayed with us for 2 weeks. During that time we went shopping, ice skating, to the pool, we painted our own pottery, we made smores every night and watched Grav3yard Girl & Eleventh Gorgeous videos, and played with Baby Love and celebrated the fourth... SO MUCH FUN! We also baby sat these cute little critters while their parents were out of town. Sweet little Bear and Bailey!

After that....

Grams and Aunt TayTay came to visit. They brought frogs and suckers and Baby loved it! We also did some pottery painting, crafting, shopping, and Grav3yard Girl watching! Oh and sushi... Aunt TayTay and I enjoyed lots of tasty sushi while Gram's gagged at us. It was soooo tasty.

Now the company has all gone home, back to their normal lives and we are slowly getting back to ours. Baby has recently been getting adjusted to a new sleep schedule and now sleeps in his own crib all the time. (It is however still in our room because. A. I am paranoid. B. I am lazy... I am not walking across the hall way half asleep.) School is about to start back up and let me tell you... I am a little nervous about how this semester is going to go down because my kid is EVERY WHERE and in EVERY THING! Drawers... he opens them, doors he opens them, bags... he tears everything out. I recently moved our entire movie collection into a hallway linen closet which took me an hour to do because we own probably 500+ (This is actually not an exaggeration) dvds and my BabyLove loves nothing more than to rip every single one of them down out of it's place and throw them ALL OVER THE HOUSE! Pray for me this semester. Pray that I find time for sleep and showering!

Speaking of prayers... the one year anniversary of my Grammy joining the Lord is coming up and lets face it... I just have been having a really hard time with it lately. The thing is... it felt like she had kicked cancer's butt so many times before that I think a big part of all of us just expected that she would be able to keep doing it. When she lost her battle I feel like I was just in shock and I still feel like a little bit of that is lingering. I can't not help but think about it a hundred times a day and it makes me feel guilty because I have a lot of wonderful grandparents that I also should be worrying about. It's just that... she was so young, and it's not fair. However... something amazing came from all of this the other day. I was having a down day and was drowning in a lot of emotions over this. I had decided that I needed to unpack some boxes (yes I'm still unpacking... don't judge) while Baby was taking a nap. I came across a book that she had given me and whenever Grammy gave me a book she would always include a special little note inside. This note talked about marriage and love and she included some verses with it. I looked up the verses and I don't want to talk a lot about them because then I start crying and I can't see what I am typing and my mascara runs but basically... she taught me something else. I always said that I idolized her marriage and what she had to tell me made me appreciate my sweet husband a little more then I already do. Baby Daddy and I recently celebrated our second anniversary and sometimes it's easy to get lost in a marriage when you are just going through every day life. When you stay home all day long paying attention to another tiny person and forgetting about yourself it is easy to just want to block every one else out at the end of the day. I am so guilty of tuning out my sweet husband every time he wants to show me the latest camo that just came out, or a new duck call, or a new Sage fly rod, or what GHG is doing this year. I forget some times at the end of the day that he wants my attention too, that he needs my attention and that after our faith, he comes next in my lineup. So anyways.. long story short.. there was Grammy, reminding me, teaching me, and I can't be more grateful for that.

Nursey update!

Hi!, I have been pretty busy lately and lacking in blogging inspiration! I'm not even sure how that is possible with this cute kid that I could be writing about. I guess what I should say is that I have been lacking in motivation. Especially because......
It's soooooo HOT here and all I want to do is watch this sweet boy play in his palm tree pool! Also I have been reading a lot lately. I go though stages in which I will binge read for a few weeks. I've gone through and started rereading all of my favorites lately... "Favorite Memories of a Country Vet", "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels", "Madame Millie", and "With Love from Baghdad". I also found a V.C. Andrews series that I have read a million times on iBooks the other day and devoured the entire series within three nights. I also picked up "The Fault in our Stars" but regretted reading it afterwards. To soon to be reading books about cancer I think, but still I think it would have been an O.K. book if it wouldn't have tossed me back into thinking about my family's recent loss.

I have also been working on the house, which has not been going well. I just hate unpacking! I do have Baby Love's nursery pretty much done though...
Baby and I have decided to share some photos of it! 
The sunflower yellow peg board is our newest addition to nursery decor! Dang Pinterest has to many adorable ideas and I feel like I need to do all of them! And of course, no nursery would be complete without an old Murph dog!
The Tipi has been the best thing ever! We have spent hours playing in and around the TiPi! 
Baby recently started becoming very interested with his tiny rocking chair from Great Grandma & Grandpa in the corner. You should see him rock in it! So cute! 
We also really love this Melissa & Doug barnyard set from Aunt Nannon! He wants to play with it all the time! 
And of course his new walk in closet! 

I am still missing something for the area over his crib because I was unable to salvage the vinyl ducks sign from his old room. (Parts of it did however find its way into his baby book.) But we are working with the Grandducks Vickie and Randy to figure something out. Our new walls have a very rough texture and V, suggested putting one on a sign but I haven't been able to find anything I would want to put it on yet.

Speaking of his crib, something amazing has been happening lately. Well amazing for me anyways. My son has started sleeping in his own bed! And not just sleeping in his own bed, I lay him down at nine o'clock and he goes to sleep by himself without crying! We started this about three weeks ago. The first night he cried for about five minutes, the second night he cried for a couple minutes, and since then he hasn't cried a single night. I thought that this was going to be hard, turns out the only person who had a hard time at first was me. It had started to become way to hot for us to all sleep in the same bed though and he has recently started wiggling EVERY WHERE! The Baby Daddy can sleep through being kicked and gouged usually but I can not! For now he is sleeping in his own bed in our room because he is still nursing and I am to lazy to walk my sleepy self across the hall way at 3am but soon we will start introducing him into sleeping in his own crib in his own room. 
He still hasn't started crawling either, he does however scoot around on his butt and roll to whatever he wants. He also pulls himself up on everything. I'm starting to wonder if he will be one of those babies who goes straight to walking and by passes crawling. Someone has been hanging out everyday though and encouraging him to become more mobile on his own... 
He wants to go everywhere that his four legged blond brother goes. 

I love these three... and my kids natural faux hawk that has begun to come back!

Redecorating and Lushin' it up!

What?! Two blogs in a 24 hr period? I'm on a roll y'all. Actually... I have recently been working on Baby's sleep schedule again. With all of the traveling we have done over the past three months his schedule was upside down! Finally after a week of being settled he is starting to get back into his own groove. Thank you Baby Jesus! I was about to pull my hair out.

Anyways... I am writing this to show you all the fun things we have acquired today!

First we will start with Baby Love's new nursery stuff!
So, as you may know, leaving the old house behind was especially hard for me because I was not ready to leave Baby's nursery. There is just something special about a room that you pour all your heart into for your first munchkin. It was the room that I envisioned him in while he was still kicking away at my ribs. It was the room that I spent hours rearranging and searching for just the right stuff to go in. So when we had to pack it up after he only spent five months there... ugh, I was a wreck about it. When we picked out the house we are in now I looked for two things, a big back yard for my fuzzies and a sweet room for my Baby Love. I found both. His new room is huge though! I mean gigantic compared to what he had before so now I am working on revamping the nursery. I have lots of projects in the works which I will show you when I am done but for now I will show you our Amazon score.
How much fun is this? (Sorry the photo is so grainy) This is Baby's new night light! It's a light projector that is supposed to make his ceiling look like the bottom of the ocean! I can also plug my iPhone or iPod into it and it will play music. 
We also ended up with... 
A (faux) sheepskin rug for the Tipi! No tipi is complete without a furry rug! Duh! Chief Thunder Britches is in love with it by the way. He loves the way it feels. Also, I think I want to live in his Tipi. It's just so cute! I want one for myself. I could put it right next to his and we could be neighbors! :)

Today we celebrated Mother's Day because we were missing the Daddy for the actual day. Baby Daddy has been working crazy hours lately so we hadn't really seen or spent any time with him until today. He and Baby gave me a Mother's Day gift today though. 
First they gave me Duck Commander wine! 
And then they gave me a big ol' bag of Victoria's Secret! 
Nothing says Happy Mother's Day like booze and undies! Actually I think the Baby Daddy has ulterior motives here. He has been talking about another kid lately. He probably thinks this is the ticket to baby #2. Luckily for me... 

 He's at work and I'm being a lush so... that's not going to work. Just sayin'!

Regrets already!

When Baby Daddy comes staggering through the door at 6am after getting off of work I will regret staying up to write this blog. Baby Daddy has one volume, loud. So Ti will hear him coming through the door and he will bark very loudly, which will scare the heck out of the tiny baby that stays curled up against me and then... he will refuse to go back to sleep and I will spend the day exhausted and hating myself for staying up and writing this blog. Yep, that will happen. However... many things have happened since my last blog and so I have no choice but to continue on for my loyal fans. *sigh*

Things I have done since last time...
First I finished burning down the second Diamond Candle and this is what was in it. Once again, more costume jewelry but still very pretty.
And then...

I bombed my Spanish final!!! My 93 went to a 76.4 with one damn test. I was robbed! Ok, it was all my fault but holy macaroni y'all, I'm never going to learn Spanish! Not that way anyways. Either way, one more semester down and two more to go. (Also... sorry if that photo looks weird!)
This happened...
Why yes!, That is a Too Faced Chocolate Bar! I have been in love with/obsessed with/desperately wanting a Chocolate Bar for awhile now and the other day I decided that I was going to take my birthday money and splurge. It's so beautiful.
Ugh! I just adore it!
After that I experienced my first Mother's Day! Which was glorious! I spent all day with the Boy that made me a Momma! I also found out that my yard turtles were hiding an itty bitty secret!
Apparently Morty and Macy are parents! If you are wondering where I suddenly acquired turtles from... they came with the house and once belonged to the late previous owner. No one ever had the heart to take them away from their home and so now I have become their caretaker. I love them! Baby and I can both spend HOURS watching them! So I was very surprised to walk past the patio door and suddenly see this tiny little girl!
She's so cute! And currently nameless. I have a list going but none that I have decided on yet.
I spent the day missing the mothers in my life... Momzy, Grandmas, Great Grandmas, and Sissy!
But one mother was on my mind a lot yesterday... Grammy.
Pretty sure I listened to her voicemails on my phone about thirty times yesterday. She'd probably be mad if she saw what a sap I was being. I bet everything was pretty glorious in heaven though.
On a lighter note...
I have a new subscription box because Ipsy and having an Ulta literally right down the road are not enough. Maybe Mom is right, maybe I am a makeup hoarder. Anyways, this is a Glossybox and so far I haven't decided how I feel about it yet. It is $20/month but the products are usually full size. This box is worth about $78. Not bad.
I received my Ipsy bag today and I am not as impressed this month as I usually am. I just don't like to mix up the skin care products. I am currently having hell with my Clinique skin care system and I am not so sure introducing anything new in is the best idea. I am also upset I missed out on the Too Faced Bronzer a lot of the other subscribers ended up with. :( Sad.
