Is it just me or does it seem like EVERYONE has a cold? Yikes. My friends and I sent out a group text message a couple days ago to get together and I swear more than half of them wrote back saying that they were sick, their husband was sick or both. I DO NOT want to get sick over this break, so I’m currently drinking some Emergen-C. I’m also thinking about going into seclusion to keep the germs away. Because being pregnant and sick is the WORST. Praying you all stay healthy too!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I may be a day late, but the sentiment is still the same. I pray you all enjoyed your day yesterday with family and don’t have too much of a mess to clean up today!

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

During this holiday season, I’m offending people left and right. It’s true. So I apologize right now to the barista at Starbucks, the checker at the grocery store and my mailman. I’m sorry that I can’t help saying “Merry Christmas”. I find such joy sharing these two magical words with people. If you celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, feel free to tell me your special greeting and I’ll take it in stride. But in my world, “Merry Christmas” ALWAYS trumps “Happy Holidays”.

My New Favorite Lip Color

I love lipstick, of any kind, especially during this chilly season when my lips are so white you’d think I was dead.

So I am incredibly happy to announce this new amazing lip pencil by CoverGirl. It is the jumbo gloss balm from the Queen collection. I got the Disco Punch shade and I’m in love.

It is large like a crayon, so it is super easy to apply, but it is glossy, so it gives you just the most perfect translucent natural color. It also stays on even after eating.

AND to top it all off, it’s less than $10!

Happy Fashion Friday!

Sometimes I look at myself and am amazed at how much I’ve grown and how “normal” I’ve become in the fourteen years since I graduated high school (yikes that’s a long time!). And then I have a conversation with another human being and I realize I haven’t changed much since I was that nerdy awkward girl walking the halls. I swear my brain stops working when I have even the slightest interaction with an acquaintance or stranger. I jumble my words into one…the other day I told my coworker her necklace was “preautiful” (yup, that would be pretty and beautiful…duh). It’s very Brian Regan “take luck” (listen to this and fast forward to 1:50). And you should see me talking to servers in restaurants. It’s like George Costanza, complete train wreck. So go ahead and look at my pictures and make believe that I’m a confident, well-spoken individual. Ha!!
