TT (Trendy Tuesday)

First of all...

It's mustache day at school. 
You know me and mustaches. LOVE them. 
Fake ones, not real ones that is!

Second of all...

It will change your life. And body.
The end.
I was talking to this girl the other day and she was going on (and on) about not wanting to "bulk" up. UGH with an eye roll on the side.  Fine. Embrace those flabby triceps you're sporting. If you are using the "I don't want to bulk up" excuse that means you just don't want to do it. 
Girls don't "bulk" up. 
(Yes there are rare exceptions, but I'm fairly certain this doesn't apply to you.)
Just do it. 
 Sorry. Just had to add that in today. I've been having too many conversations lately with nutty women who are too scared to lift weights.
What they should be scared of is how hot they'd be if they'd do it.

And lastly...

How about a pair of shoes with a shiny cap toe?
It's Trendy Tuesday...
Do you DARE?
P.S. I do!

Weekend at My House

Good Morning!
Did you start with a good breakfast?
You know, it's the most important meal of the day.
At least that's what Grover from Sesame Street tells me over and over and over again everyday in the car. 

Someone else in our family had a birthday.

 Oh Thomas we love you.
Thank you for providing hours of entertainment.

 And he has officially enetered into the terrible 2's.
See that little warning sticker. Wish one of those was attached to his bum when he was born so I could  prepare myself.

 Tassel sneaker loafers.
The loafer for the mom on the go.

My birthday wish came true. Thank you Prince Charming. XO

 Lastly, our ticket system is working flawlessly. So far that is.
An idea I found on pinterest. And if I could find the link I would link it. Sorry.

It's Monday...
Make it a great one!

Have you seen this TRENDY new product
 My curiosity got the best of me so I broke my bank ($35 bucks) and purchased the kit.
Lets just say my lashes looked nothing like the lashes pictured on the box. Not that I expected them to but for $35 I was hopeful.

Conclusion: Save the cash and take yourself on a Target cosmetic shopping spree instead
or invest in still one of my most favorite mascaras ever called
Zoom Lash by MAC.
It's Trendy Tuesday...Do you Dare?

P.S. Did you know that when you buy cosmetics from Sephora you can return them if you hate them? Keep the receipt!

Was it a good morning for you?
Me? Sure.
It all began with the hub's alarm going off at an insane hour so that he could catch a plane to Vegas. Then two hrs. later the crashing (serious crashing) of toys rolling down the stairs woke me to a heart attack. Thanks Kels. Didn't I ask you to put those away last night? Then the screaming devil toddler showed up at my bedside throwing fruit roll ups at my head. Oh, and devil toddler had a poopie diaper.
Do you ever wake up and think you have the dumbest life ever?
Good Morning Sunshine!
It's Monday...Make it a great one!

Halloween House

Let the Halloween festivities begin!
Today we are making plans for our
Halloween Pumpkin Pancake Party.
Say that five times fast.
We'll let you know what we come up with.

Honestly, I had no desire to decorate for Halloween this year. I would have skipped it all together with the exception of a pumpkin or two. But when you wake up to Halloween bins all over the living room that your 10 yr old has drug in from the garage, how can one say no? Three hours later and $35 bucks in pumpkins~Voila~it's officially Halloween at my house.
