Make-Up Monday: Friends and Family

It is that glorious time of year when Sephora gives 20% off to their friends and family!

Here is what is going into my cart:

(Love this stuff.  Like, when I finished the last tube, I kept peering down into the bottom like maybe there was a tiny bit left.  That kind of love.)
(So many months of coveting this palette.)

(Who's going to tell this guy we might be moving?)

We put a bid in on a house, and we have been waiting to hear back for approximately a thousand years now.

It is like waiting for a cute boy to call, except instead of obsessively checking some boy's Facebook, I am obsessively checking

This is the same house that we put a bid on a couple weeks ago, only to be told that another bidder had gotten there first.  Then, we got a call that the other bidder's financing had fallen through!

To quote Grizz from 30 Rock, "It's like a roller coaster ride of emotion in here."

Anyone have a great story about how it took them a long time to get into a new house, but then it turned out perfectly and they lived happily ever after?  Anyone?

Three Things

1. Remember that time I didn't blog for a whole month?  It was, well, the whole last month. The combination of school, work and grad school has me running around like a crazy person.  

(And the fact that one of my grad classes is a history course with approximately 13 million pages of reading each week?  Not really helping.)

2. We have officially begun house hunting! It is all very grown-up and scary, and the words "30-year fixed mortgage" have become a part of our daily conversations.

3. I very much want this purple dress from Old Navy to come hang out in my closet and maybe take me out to dinner every once and a while.
