Wishful Wednesday....

'I wish' .... I could play a character's role in a book and it would be
BELLA SWAN from The Twilight Series

Okay girls, let's be honest here - who would NOT want to be swept off their feet by Edward Cullen and become best friends with Alice Cullen!! :) I am not just talking about Robert Pattinson either, don't get me wrong he is "easy on the eyes" but the character Edward Cullen... MERCY!!

Jump on over to The Seattle Smith's to join in the Wishful Weds. fun!!

Fill in the blank FRIDAY!!

I thought this was a very cute post so I wanted to join in on the fun. Hop on over to Lauren's blog to see all the Fill In The Blank Friday posts!!

1. If I could medal in an olympic event it would be the luge, it just looks so fun, dangerous but FUN .

2. If I was stranded on a deserted island I'd take my family, my nook, my ipod - hey I would have some entertainment as long as the battery last!! HA!

3. Throwing up (just being honest) is my most irrational fear.

4. I'd rather eat something like brussel sprouts everyday, than have to watch Wow Wow Wubbzy (its a kid show, and it gets on your nerves QUICK everyday.

5. I am not feeling good today .

6. I should really be doing some last min. homework for class tomorrow morning .

7. One of my favorite things in all the world is listening to my step daughter and daughter laugh together, even though they are 10 years apart they really enjoy each other! .

Absolutely Alice

We are VERY excited around our house about the March 5th release of Alice in Wonderland, Addison saw the preview back in the summer and that is when Alicemania hit out house. I saw a post on a friends Facebook about some "Absolutely Alice" OPI nail polish that has been released. Well my Alice ABSOLUTELY had to have it!! I called several stores in town today and was able to snag a bottle at Ulta. I am sure before it is all said and done we will have all the colors, I wanna try to find the Mad as a Hatter shade next!! Here is shot of Alices's, oh i mean Addison's nails!! (Please do not judge my nail painting skills - it was hard to do on a giggly, wiggly, 4 year old!!)

My Jesus - I heard this song on the way home from school and it brought tears to my eyes as I listened to these words. Powerful.

Project Life - Week 5

I have been sick with a horrid sinus infection, you know the kind that feels like your head could just blow off your neck at any second!! I did get to the doctor today and get some meds so I will be better soon. (I HOPE!) Anyway, I was NOT going to miss out on my project life post this week - its technically Weds now but as they say, better late than never!!

2.2 - Addison went to a birthday party at Glitz and Glam tonight - she dressed up like Alice and of course found her favorite book!!

2.3 keeping with the Alice theme this week - she found these at the Disney store today, she was SO excited because they usually do not carry Alice in Wonderland but with the new Tim Burton version coming out there is stuff EVERYWHERE

2.4 My Alice in her own wonderland

2.5 - Addison playing like she is a cat and batting around a paper towel roll, all the toys she has and she is playing with cardboard!!

Show Us Your Life - Beauty Tips and Favorite Products

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

It's show us your life Friday over at Kelly's Korner! This week's topic is Beauty Tips and Favorite Products. I can honestly say that I don't have many beauty tips, however I have MANY favorite products. Let's start with hair shall we??

I use HG color savor shampoo, my amazing hair dresser introduced me to this line of products a few months ago and I love it! I also use the HG Fast Food leave in conditioner from time to time. I had my thyroid removed in Aug of 2008 and a lasting side effect from that is EXTREMELY dry hair. This shampoo has helped quite a bit. I would also recommend to other products for dry hair. One would be Moroccan oil the picture below is the only brand I have ever used but it leave your hair so shiny and silky but not a bit oily. A tiny tiny bit of this goes a VERY long way!

Let's move on to eyes. My favorite eyeliner is Urban Decay, its waterproof and I can assure you that it is NOT coming off even if you cry!! You can scrub and scrub at night and have a hard time getting if off with eye makeup remover. I like to try funky colors every once and while here are a few of my favorite shades.

Last but not least is perfumes! I have been wearing Juicy Couture "Viva La Juicy".

I am constantly getting complements or asking what fragrance I am wearing. Tonight a friend and I went to Sephora to "test smell" Kim Kardashian's new scent. I did not like it, but just because it has a strong floral smell to it and I am not a floral kinda gal. Those scents tend to give me a headache after a while of wearing them. Jessica on the other hand really liked the smell and she bought a small bottle; I asked her to bring it to the office tomorrow because I REALLY don't want to give up on my girl Kim just yet!

I can wait to read every one's post - maybe I can add some more favorites to my list!

Wishful Wednesday....Spotlight

Wishful Wednesday

I wish..... I could have stolen LADY GAGA's spotlight at the Grammy's. I know, I know she's strange, freakish, just plain ODD - but oh how I just LIKE her!! Her performance with Elton John was absolutely "killer". I am a HUGE fan of musicals and I really liked how they brought her out with the guy telling a story before she sang Poker Face. Then the story continued and then she came back with Elton John. Like I said - I know she's strange, but there is just something about her that gets my attention! Different or NOT - the girl can SING!!!!!

That's what it's ALL about...

Check out these party full of princesses that I came across tonight - esp. check out the Lil Alice in the blue dress (white bow on the back and white polka dots) - she has some mad skills when it comes to shaking it all about!! :) Addison went to a friends birthday party tonight at Glitz and Glam Boutique in Bartlett, she had an absolute B L A S T!! I would recommend this place again and again for a little girl party!

Project Life - Week 4!!

YAY!!!! - It's Tuesday!! I get so excited about sharing my pictures from my Project Life album for the week. Enjoy!!

1.26 - My Project Life kit came today - I was soo excited to get it all set up and ready to fill with memories!!

1.27 - I was chosen to be The Treasurer of the S.T.E.A. (student teacher education association) at Crichton College - we held our first members meeting tonight.

1.28 - Our Tivo box died earlier this week -you can read that post here. The new box came in this bubble wrap aka - the new bed for all the stuffed animals!

1.29 - we woke up to snow falling today! Kids out of school - we all hung out and stayed warm!

1.30 - The girls went outside for about 10 mins - this was NOT fun snow, it was mostly ice as you can see on the street behind the girls.

1.30 - Addison was 100% stir crazy and was ready to get out of the house - she was thrilled to go to my moms and play in this pillowcase!! Silly girl!!

1.31 - The ice is slowly melting - streets are clear but there are still several frozen trees, windchimes, and parking lots!!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
