Little of This and That


A couple of weeks ago, my hubby and I decided to purchase our first home!  It's something we've been dreaming of and waiting for the right opportunity.  Even though we had been looking for awhile, it seems that it was just sort of impulsive when we finally did find our dream home.  The only drag is that it is being built so I have to be patient but at the same time, it's going to be built to our specifications.  We had so much fun a couple weekends ago picking out the counters, cabinets, and flooring!  We felt so grown up!  I've been a pinning machine and pretty much the only room I know exactly how I'll decorate is...Lucas' room!  Figures.


These earrings sent to me by the lovely Marlene of MDC Artistic Designs.  I love me some jewelry but something I hardly ever gravitate towards are earrings.  No reason, I just always go for necklaces instead.  Then I saw these beauties and couldn't wait to wear them because I love the colors so much.  Marlene makes beautiful jewelry and I know I will be wearing these a lot this summer.
 
Stop what you're doing and get thee this Too Faced Chocolate Palette instantly!  I am a makeup junkie...a junkie I tell you.  I have two MAC palettes that I made, all of the naked palettes, some smaller Too Faced palettes, the Urban Decay anniversary palette...but this Chocolate palette is my favorite ever and not just because it smells like chocolate (which it does and it's amazing!)  My hubby surprised me with this after hearing me talk about this and after a particularly rough week and I have not stopped using it since.  I like natural shadows that are long lasting because I do not reapply makeup during the day and because I'm gone for 10 hours or so during the day.  Not only are these shadows long lasting but the colors are so beautiful.  There are so many different combos and color variations that I could only just use this palette forever.  Love this!

This crazy type-A mommy is starting to plan Lucas' first birthday party.  He's only nine months but with the move happening, I don't want anything to slip through.  It's his first birthday after all!  I'm definitely having more fun planning the party than he probably will at the actual party but oh well.  I'm going to try to get crafty and hopefully all the craft supplies actually end up being something other than folded up in a store bag.
