It’s Friday Friday!!
I’m SO excited to finally be able to rent Catching Fire tonight. I saw it in theaters, but the boys haven’t seen it yet. And I’m DYING to see it again.
J. Law fo’ LIFE!!
I finally transitioned Lucy to one nap a day instead of two…and it’s not working out the best. You’d think she’d be exhausted by the time her nap rolls around — but I’m lucky if she sleeps an hour. She does FALL asleep much faster though, so that’s something. I’m really hoping if I just stick with it she will eventually fall into a better rhythm.
Also, we had another ice storm this week. School was cancelled, tacking yet ANOTHER day on to the end of the school year. I am SO over it!! By Monday evening, I was seriously looking for a bottle of whiskey I might have hidden somewhere.
Families aren’t meant to spend that much time confined with a toddler who won’t nap. They just aren’t.
I started watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. I’m planning on watching House of Cards, but I tried one episode and I could tell that it really required my full attention — it’s not something I can watch while I bake and work on the computer. So I will start that in the evenings if I can get my husband to stay awake long enough to watch with me!
Pretty Little Liars hasn’t grabbed me the way Sons of Anarchy or Nashville did, but it’s entertaining, semi-mindless, and I love looking for clothes and hair inspiration. Lots of great make up going on, too!
I’m still on the second book of The Dark Tower series. So far it’s really good!! There is a list of books I want to read that’s about a trillion miles long — I am ready to retire so I can do nothing but read and bake cookies. Can’t that be a thing that thirty four year olds do all day for a job?
Did you watch the Oscars? SO many pretty dresses this year!! I shared some favorites (and UNfavorites) HERE.
Oh…Juan Pablo. Did you watch The Women Tell All this week? It was not as full of shocking revelations as I had hoped. Shelly recapped it HERE, and I’ll be back next week with a recap of the FINALE!! Any guesses on who wins?
Can we talk about foundation for a minute?
I have yet to find my “holy grail”. I recently tried the Philosophy Hope in a Jar foundation, which I liked well enough…and finally decided to give MAC a go. The Studio Sculpt in NW 15 was recommended to me, which is a pale shade on the warm end of the spectrum. MAC does things a little differently and recommends warm shades for cool toned skin to neutralize it. The foundation is nice and thick, and I’m a full coverage girl (if I put on make up I want to look MADE UP) but I swear, it’s almost too orangey. It’s the lightest shade they have and I do a lot of blending with a brush and beauty blender, but I still think it’s too orange.
Keep in mind, I am SUPER sensitive about orange face, so if it’s even a tad, I am NOT happy.
Anyways, I’d love to hear what you use and love. I really want something pale (obvi), full coverage, and I go for the glowy look versus matte. My friend Shelly swears by this Armani foundation, but I’m obviously not about to spend that kind of money if I haven’t even TRIED it in person (no Nordstrom here in Arkansas). She says it lasts forever, so there’s that.
Years and years ago, before primers and setting sprays were really a thing, I used a foundation by Avon religiously. It dried fast, so I had to apply quickly, but it was a perfect match for my skin, didn’t budge ALL DAY, and I got compliments CONSTANTLY. Literally every day. And of course, it no longer exists.
Annoying. So tell me about what YOU use and love!!
Cake!! You need this Shamrock Shake cake in your life.
Key Lime Cake Pops – want a dozen?
I’m so frustrated that Downton left us wondering who Mary will choose. Which of her suitors do YOU think is the best match? I’m taking a vote HERE.
That’s it for this week. Tell me about yours!!
