Make-Up Monday: Red, White and Blue

Today, I am thankful for a day off to lie on the couch and paint my nails red and watch trashy TV.  (Hello, OPI's High Maintenance and Secret Life of the American Teenager on Netflix!)

Of course, I also realize that Memorial Day has a much deeper meaning, and I am thankful for those men and women who have served and continue to serve our country.

In addition, I am thankful for Memorial Day picnics and blue stripe-y dresses and great minds who sometimes think alike.

I hope your weekend has been fun and relaxing and has involved several different kinds of dessert.

Leggings are Magic

Because leggings turned this slightly-too-short-for-work dress into a totally-appropriate-for-work dress.

Bibiddi bobbidi boo.

Keep Your Head Up

I don't know if I'm coming or going this week.

I have been spending time with my fabulous friends and their fabulous babies and taking my first graders on a field trip and trying to keep my head above water at grad school.

I heard this song on the radio on Monday morning, and it felt like the universe was sending me a message that everything is going to be just fine.

Just So You Know

- Bridesmaids is pretty flipping hilarious.  You should definitely go see it if you haven't already.

- This skirt from Old Navy is the longer version of my very favorite Old Navy jersey skirt.  I would like it to cost less than the 30 dollars that it currently costs.

- There is still no news on the pregnancy front.  There is, however, a slight chance that I found myself tearing up in the baby aisle at Stop and Shop yesterday.

(Lack of) Make-Up Monday

Phew, May is just one of those months.  There are so many graduations and showers and birthday parties and little sisters going to prom.

(O.k., just one little sister going to prom, but she looked fabulous, right?)

I would like to say that I've been bothering to do more than just my basic routine in the morning, but I definitely have not.

In fact, these past couple weeks I have been lucky if I leave the house fully dressed with mascara on.

(True confession: Sometimes I put the mascara on at red lights).

I would like...

... to see the movie Bridesmaids this weekend.

... to have someone else correct my kiddos' papers.

... a day on the couch to watch Psych on Netflix with Mr. Kinne.  (Have you guys seen this show?  It is pretty hilarious).

... a giant Oreo milkshake.

... and a straw.

Tiara Sold Separately

I was a ballerina once... for a few months... when I was five.

But, let's face it, this may have been the most adorable time in my life.

Can you blame me for wanting to re-live my glory days in this fabulous ballerina dress from Land's End Canvas?

That skirt was made for twirling.

Make-Up Tuesday: CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara

Here was the thought process I went through in picking this mascara.

"Well, I like the one in the orange tube..."

Yep, that was pretty much it.

But, it turns out the mascara in the purple tube makes my lashes look sort of wimpy.  It makes them a little longer, but they stay super skinny.

Next time, I might try the pink tube.
