What are your plans for the day?
My husband and I normally stay home with the kiddos — we live in the largest town in the area, meaning…our restaurants feed a LOT of people from other towns. Forget about a bunch of Olive Garden on V Day — you’ll be waiting for hours.
I’m not about to wait fourteen hours for alfredo. I’ll take a home cooked meal, my best boys and a Amazon Instant video ANY DAY. Thanks.
Tonight my church actually put a date night together, so we have a sitter and everything!! And no waiting in long lines for food!! We are going to see comedian Tim Hawkins. I’ve seen him before and he’s a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to it. It will be our first real life Valentine’s Day date in YEARS.
Lucy Goose is getting LONG hair!! I’m considering taking her to get it shaped up, but not sure my brain is strong enough to deal with the hassle.
I finally finished our Home Command Center (holla, Pinterest!!). It took me awhile to get a good chore system in place (they’re laminated cards on a ring) but I finally found a idea I loved on Pinterest and they’re working for us. The whole thing was inexpensive — I used PicMonkey to make my own prints so I can change them later if I need new inspiration. I’ll share all the details on materials in the next week or so. It’s nice to have everything in one spot!!
I am a sucker for a good pinky/nude and this one from Tarte is my current favorite. I love lip pencils like this because you are able to get definition you can’t get with a lipstick, and this Power Pigment line doesn’t dry out your lips at all — it’s really rich and shiny. Such a pretty color and great for every day.
I am a crown teaser through and through and this brush works like NO OTHER. If you want pretty volume that LASTS, you need this brush.
I watched The Price of Gold on Netflix yesterday –it’s all about the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding scandal and was really interesting. I definitely recommend it.
Looking for a good book? In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing my favorite romance novels. From classics, to quirky and even some young adult novels, I’ve got you covered!!
No 50 Shades, though. Not my kind of romance, sorry.
I am recapping the week in pop culture on That’s What WE Said.
Can someone make Miley’s dad stop talking?
Are you watching The Bachelor? I can honestly say, this is my least favorite season of all time. JP is my least favorite Bachelor of all time, and his creepy noises and wiggly eyebrows are my least favorite…you get the point. However — duty calls (she said duty) and I’m recapping the latest episode HERE.
That’s it for this week — I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day and a great weekend!!
