I'm going to take back what I said about the Chubby Sticks by Clinique. Ignoring the fact that it has a terrible name, and ignoring the fact that I still am not in love- I found mine and actually have been using it like a chap stick. It is semi moisturizing and the color is natural, although not long lasting. I change my review and give it 3/5 lippies. It still doesn't last and it is not as moisturizing as lip balm. Give me lip balm and give me lipstick!

God Has Blessed Me

Let me ask you if this ever happens to you:

Life gets a little busy. Maybe the kids get sick, the hubby gets crabby, you can't find your favorite jeans, and your best friend calls you and vents about her bad day. At the end of the week, you feel like you got hit by a bus. You're too afraid to go to date night because your body is tired.

Then it happens. Someone experiences something much worse. In my case, a dear friend lost an adult child. It's like a GIANT wake up call! The lord has reminded me how lucky I really am.

Who cares if my toddler daughters are fighting non stop? They are alive and well and I should be thanking my lucky stars.

Who cares if my hubby gets tired and crabby after a long day's work? The lord has blessed him with good work, a solid career, and a roof over our heads.

Who cares if a friendship becomes more needy than helpful? Friendship has it's ups and downs. I am blessed to have people that value my opinion.

Thank you lord, for opening my eyes. I am forever grateful for my christian husband and our family. I am forever thankful for our faith in Jesus.

This may not be about makeup... it's about much more.

Live your life to the fullest and be thankful!

Super Bowl 2012: Ranked #2 in eating after Thanksgiving

We are having a party at our house and I can't wait to eat the food! Should I try the artichoke dip first or the jimmy johns subs? We have various chocolate bars from award winning Linda's Bakery and chocolate chip cookies. Ultimate football food! Nothing too stuffy today. Just plain old good grub.

Cheers to you and your favorite team! Go Giants!!

Beautiful Mother of the Month: My Mom

The Ivy Spa: Minneapolis, a Disappointment

Bekah and I had the opportunity to go to the Ivy in November for another spa weekend. We were excited to go to Minneapolis's top rated spa. As far as the hotel went, it was GORGEOUS and contemporary. We stayed in a suite that was expensive and a little uninviting for my taste. But we were happy. Then we went to the spa and I had the worst massage of my life. The masseuse was awkward and kept the lights on the entire time. She rushed with the rubbing part and slapped lotion on my back. It was such a disappointment, I had to report to management. Ultimately, they credited us for the massage and ended up offering us a discount to come back. But I have not taken them up on the offer, simply because there are so many lovely spas who get it right.

Anyone else have a better experience? I'd love to hear about it. Comments are great!

Here is a picture of my manicured hand after the trip... my only lovely memory!

Clinique's Chubby Sticks

I just don't get it. It's like when they came out with chubby eye liners.. This really doesn't do anything. No color. No shine. No reason to purchase. Ever.

My Rating 1/5
