Vacation: Day 15

Six years he's been begging us. Six years.

"Dad PLEASE can we go to Bear World this time? PLEASE??!!
You always say no but, PLEASE can we go this year?
I promise I'll even walk super fast through the gift shop and won't ask for anything!
And I won't bug you for quarters at the penny press machine. Those are sorta dumb anyway.
It will be so much fun. I know  you're gonna love it and remember it forever. Please??!!"

Congrats Kelson J Walker. You won. After six years you finally won.

And although your Dad and I would never admit to you that you were right, we did have a great time and will remember it forever (especially when Ted climbed on our car) We are greatful for your persistence. BUT...don't you dare ask us to go back for another six years!:)

In less that 24 hours we will be home. Home! Home! Home! Hallelulah!
And in leass than 48 hours my Children go back to school (a silent inside-my-head hallelulah cheer).

Skinny Talk

Skipping breakfast makes you fat. The end. 
 Have you had your Wheaties?

10 Reasons to Feed Your Belly in the AM
1. If you don't, you'll be a grumpy pants.
2. You need the energy it provides to start your day. 
3. It will make your brain smarter (seriously).
4. It will make you less likely to grab a handful of Doritos at 10Am
5. It puts you on track to lead a healthy lifestyle.
6. It does a physical body good.
7. Fills you with nutrients you're not likely to get at other meals.
8. It's delicious!
9. It will make you poop (thank you fiber).
10. Eating breakfast will make rock those skinny jeans!

Are you a breakfast boycotter?

At our house we consume a lot of green smoothies, egg white omelets, 
and whole wheat peanut butter toast. 

Love these two charts!

(Note: Use frozen fruit or add ice for more of a smoothie texture.)

Eat Up my friends!

It's Monday. Make it a great one!

Congratulations Berks!
You did it.
You finally pooped on the potty all by yourself.
I am sooo proud of you.
Shall we celebrate?
Okay lets!
How about new shoes for Mommy for doing such a good job of training you.
Do you like them?
Me too.
Keep up the good work buddy. Mommy needs a new pair of jeans.

P.S. Shoes are from Nords. Unless you are special and have a Nords card they'll be available (on sale!) for purchase July19.

The Feline Flick

Lets just say make up application is not my bff. I like make up. I like it a lot actually. Especially lipstick (yum). Brightly colored lipstick to be exact (double yum). Eye shadow is sort of my enemy. I'm horrible with color choice and if it's something more than a light neutral I tend to look like I got in a fight with my own fist. Maybe that's why I'm in love with the simple cat eye. Bright lips, glowy complexion, pink tinted cheeks, and a killer cat eye~gorgeous.  So, why is it that I can only master the art of the perfect cat eye after midnight? (Yes my friends, I do strange things at midnight like practice my cat eye.) Give me a liquid liner pen at 9AM when I'm fresh and perky...guaranteed the right eye will be from Southeast Asia and the left will be walking with the Egyptians. So frustrating. Maybe I should apply at midnight and sleep with it on. Now there's an idea I never thought of.

Here are some of my favorite kitty cat looks:

Do you respect the cat eye?

P.S. I tend to play in my own closet at midnight as well. So weird. Often times the hubs will catch me and ask me where I'm going. I always tell him Paris!

Hair 101

Pretty much for the last 48 hours I have been lying in bed. Apparently a case of the achy/chills/stomach-turned-inside-out found me Monday night. Seriously? However, there is ONE thing that will get out of bed no matter how terrible I feel. A hair appointment. The hair appointment that I had to reschedule about 5 times due to kid activities. Sorry Tabs if I secretly passed the bug onto you. I did my best not to breath.

Some dreamy hair I may someday adorn on my head. 

Updos Anyone?

Hope you all have a spectacular July 4th. 
Stay safe. Stay cool. Wear something amazing!

P.S. THIS and THIS are my latest hair products. Stay tuned for critique.
