Confession Day 9/17

Morning Everyone,

Vodka and Soda

Confession Day is the best day of the week. Seriously even better than Friday around these parts....

...I confess that I seriously do not know how I survive sometimes....I spent 20 minutes looking for my hair clip....just FYI it was attached to my shirt....the shirt I was wearing. Yep, I did that. 

... I confess I have eaten WAY too many of these in the past few weeks but I cannot help myself. They have been injected with crack I swear. 

...I confess that inspired by Kathy's organization I totally redid my pantry. As in I moved all the food stuffs into this cabinet. I don't have a before picture because I'm a hot mess like that. Whatever. 

Here is the finished product...the pic should show up now!!!!!

...I confess that I am totally working on my Christmas/Birthday list already. #sorrynotsorry

...I confess that I am so jealous that my husband got 4 freaking days away. He didn't have to be a dad or a husband, he just got to go and be a guy for 4 whole freaking days. I got to clean the house and watch the I do every day.

...I confess that I haven't left my house except to go to my mom's (which is five minutes away) in a week. I have freaking cabin fever SO BAD. 

...I confess that because I obviously don't waste enough time on the internet, I joined tumblr. So long productivity! 

That's it for this week, Peace.

Worth Every Cent

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I am doing a post that I originally saw over at Steph's Page and I thought it was just the most awesome post! Everyone puts different priorities on things and everyone has different opinions on what is worth spending their money on! I loved seeing her list and thought it would be a really fun post to share a list of my own! (Plus if you have been here long you know how much I LOVE a good list!) 

1) Clarisonic Mia- I put this off forever but honestly now that I have one I am not sure I could go without one! When I was out of town for Labor Day I didn't take it with me and seriously my face felt so awful! I have an issue with "texture" and the occasional monthly breakout. My Clarisonic has totally changed all of that! I use it nightly with the sensitive brush head and I have absolutely no regrets with this purchase! 
2) Benefit Porefessional- It is a primer that you put on before your makeup and it runs about $30.....which is pretty pricey. However it seriously makes your makeup go on so much smoother and it really does help to minimize the appearance of pores. It helps my makeup stay on really well but I will warn you that if you are super oily you might want to check out the new Smashbox Pore Minimizing primer which is supposed to be amazing. I haven't tried it yet but I hear very good things about it! 
3) Pedicures- I know that Steph said this but it is TRUE.

4) Boppy- This one is for the Mama's out there. I use my Boppy EVERYDAY. Kyra has loved it since she was a tiny thing and still nursing. She still loves to sleep on it during nap times! 
Boppy Bare Naked Pillow with Slipcover & $30 Bonus Gift - Pink Owls
5) EOS Lip Balm- Warning you will want to collect them all...

6) Extra Long iPhone/iPad chargers (seriously the Freedom!!!) 

7) Google Chromecast- This is probably my Most Used Christmas gift from last year! 

8) Amazon Prime Membership - again Steph mentioned this but honestly...we save So Much at Christmas time!

9) Makeup Brushes- Okay I fought tooth and nail against this but honestly....since I switched to Real Techniques brushes and better brushes in general instead of just using my fingers or the little ones that come with the makeup...well it has been a game changer! Honestly a good brush can make even the lowest budget makeup look awesome ( I am not a makeup snob, I love expensive makeup sure but I will drug store it up ANYTIME! Wet n' Wild is my LOVE!)

10) Books- I know this is like a general statement but I NEVER feel badly about spending money on books. I don't care what type of book....books are one of the few bits of magic that we are capable of!
So true...

So what is worth every cent to you? I know you all have other things you like to spend your hard earned money on! Share in the comments!

Confession~ Sick Day Edition

Good Morning Everyone,

I am finally starting to shake the cold and Kyra seems to be feeling a lot better as well so hopefully we have finally got this thing out of our house!

Now that we are on the mend I am ready to get some Confessions out there! 

Vodka and Soda

Here we go: 

1) I am usually a pretty big baby when I am sick, however now that I am a mom I don't really have that luxury anymore, it was a bummer and honestly if I had known that my sickness would be so ignored I would have milked all previous illnesses for all they were worth! 

2) When I am sick I always look a little bit like death. I try to play it off though...sorta....

3) I used to be one of those people at work that viewed "sick days" as basically just personal days that required me to cough into the phone a couple times when I called in....I'm sorry but when the sick days WAY out number the vacation days what do you think is going to happen??

4) The most sick I have ever been was when I was pregnant. I had morning sickness and caught the flu at the same time. I was nearly put into the hospital due to dehydration but I forced myself to down fluids as fast as they were coming out because I hate IVs SO MUCH. 

5) Seeing your kid sick and not being able to help is possibly one of the worst things ever. Listening to her wheeze at night and not be able to breathe properly freaking tugged my heartstrings....

6) You know that saying "starve a fever, feed a cold" ? Yeah that's me. For some reason when I have a cold all I want to do is EAT. Comfort food is always my downfall....

7) While I want to eat all the things, I have NO desire to cook anything....therefore usually end up eating my weight in crackers....

8) I get obsessive about washing ALL. THE. THINGS. when we are sick. Seriously I wash the bedding every day and vacuum like a crazy person. You have to get the germs out!!! 

9) I have no less than three vaporizers going in the house. Not even sorry. 

10) All that being said....I really loved the extra cuddle time that Kyra and I had. She is a real snuggler when she doesn't feel well and I was all too happy to curl up with her!

That's it for me today, Happy Wednesday Everyone, See Ya Tomorrow!

Weekend Recapish

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm still not feeling super awesome with the cold and now with my ankle deciding to be a pain, but thank you all for your awesome comments yesterday and well wishes. You all made the day so much better!!! 

Today I thought I would share the pictures from the past weekend in a weekend recap type thing, and by thing I mean that I only have pictures from our trip to Ren Fest on Saturday.....

So here we go:

So this is My Fairy House that I submitted at RenFest. This is pretty much the first creative project (non writing) that I have ever finished all on my own!
(Back View)
Of course this is my parents' submission. Do you see the Epicness? Yeah, THEY have talent. I missed that gene...

That is a Willow root, and lots of gourds that they grew in the garden and then painted to perfection.

Isn't that just awesome?

This is one of the other submissions at the Fest....You can't see it in this picture but there is a tiny book on a bench that is titled "Fifty Shades of Fey" ....Hilarious!

Another Submission...So Adorable!

And Another.....

And Another....Seriously SO MUCH TALENT and CREATIVITY!

I love the roof on this one! Awesome Submission.
Then I took one of the fairies home. Isn't she so cute with her Pop Pop (my dad) ?!?!

Kyra clearly thought this mermaid was hilarious.....
This is my little 15 month old looking like she is all grown up....STOP IT RIGHT NOW!
And because I am turning into one of "those" girls....a shameless Selfie.....

So there you have it, Hope Everyone is having a great day, be sure to come back tomorrow for Confession Day!!!!
