Pucker Up!

I love shopping!
Seriously, it's an illness. I think.
Tonight I took thing 3 and thing 4 to get some milk.
We also bought ice-cream.
But that's not the point.
Can I just tell you how much I love Target!
When you shop with a teenage girl you will often find yourself browsing through the cosmetics.
Have you seen this fabulously retro line of products they've started carrying?
Let me be the first to show you!
The line is called Soap & Glory.

I had to have this one! After all, what girl could possibly resist a package that says motherpucker!
Some of the great packaging flair reads "Scientist confirm: size matters! fuller lips attract men more" and "INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: It's easy. Just put your lips together and glow!"
Somewhere inside me is this great desire to be like Carrot Jello. Lets face it. She's clever, witty, and her blog has a flair for the 50's. So when I saw this line of products, with their retro look, I was hooked.
I really do want it all!


Oh, and I definitely need this in my kitchen and both bathrooms! "WASH YOUR HANDS OF IT" Look ma, I'm Pontius Pilate!
Lately I find myself in need of this particular product. For some reason after falling in to blissful, percocet inspired, sleep for a week, I can no longer fall asleep on my own. This one says "YOUTHFUL LOOKING INSOMNIAC ADMITS HER BRIGHT UNDER EYE AREA ALL COMES DOWN TO TRICK AND TREATMENT"

Finally, you can "SCRUB YOU NOSE IN IT". To reduce the size of you pores. Or relax in the tub with "CALM ONE CALM ALL"

These are just a sample of some of the products in this line. Want to see more? Well, what are you waiting for? You can either click on the link I added for SOAP & GLORY, or get yourself over to Target.

If you happen to see me there, get out of my way because I saw it first! Oh, and don't tell my hubby what a sucker I am for great packaging.

Hmm... Maybe someone will want to pay me with free products for advertising their stuff on my blog! It could happen!

With Honor

Home at last!
My nephew returned from serving 2 years in the Columbia, South Carolina mission. After spending his entire day Thursday in the airport with flights being cancelled and then delayed, he finally made it home after 11pm. Note, that's 12 hours later than he was originally supposed to arrive.
His poor mom.
Can you imagine what that must have been like!
You haven't seen your son in 2 years, and then waiting for him to be able to even get out of the airport! Ugh!
But, at last, he's here!
It was wonderful to get to see him!
I hugged him tight, and then hugged him again. And somehow managed to not cry.
Sunday we got to listen to him report on his mission.
What an amazing experience he had!
He saw lots of conversions, made new and eternal friends,
and most importantly, he served and returned with honor.
I am so proud of you Josh!
I love you!
I'll post a pic as soon as I get someone to send me one.
What can I say. I'm still loopy from surgery and didn't take any photos myself.

I'm Alive

Yes, I survived.
These are all the super fun wrist bands I came home from the hospital wearing. I never fell, but I did drop a glass of water in the middle of the night. It was my second night home and I got up to get some water so I could take more pain meds. My poor, sweet husband must have been sleeping like a new mommy. You know what I mean. Attentive to any sound I might make. Sweet!
He jumped up.
He didn't just sit up in bed and ask me what was wrong. He jumped and landed on his feet. Guess he was expecting a repeat performance of the first night home. That was not good....

It's only been a week, and I am recovering so well, I don't even need to take most of this stuff anymore.
That's it for now. This balancing act of sitting on only one butt cheek is wearing me out!
