Phew. It's been a while since I posted a weekend wrap up, but I figure it's an easy way to keep everyone in the loop while I'm still all crazed and unorganized over here since the move. I'm really really hoping things settle down soon so that I can devote more time to the blog again- I sure do miss it! We have a few more changes for us coming up next weekend, and hopefully after that I will be able to get back to my normal routine and some semblance of sanity.
Let's take a look at what happened on & off the blog this week.
I bought this new mascara and talked about how I make some of my purchasing decisions based on how the packaging looks. In my head Im all OK, I want length and volume. Conditioning would be nice...no, not waterproof. Black, not brown. OOOOH! A pretty packaging! The people at Revlon can rest assure that their marketing techniques do, in fact, work on me.
I got to see this little cutie pie- isn't my niece adorable? Loved her little tutu outfit!
These two spent a lot of time outside and loved raking leaves. I'm not about to argue with kids who actually want to do chores.
Speaking of being outside a lot- we also made a trip to a really gorgeous park in our area. I hadn't been here in a number of years and Lily had never been, so we made a family day out of it. I took a lot of pictures, so make sure to check them out!
The kids got me on the trampoline. Anyone other moms out there feel like they are going to pee their pants when they are on a trampoline?! Sorry if that's TMI- but it's a mom problem for sure #MomLife.
The kids and I were bored, so Ayden suggested a board game (not realize the spelling/meaning were different- silly kid). We played two games and I won both times. Now if only I could win at real life.
I got another Influenster VoxBox! This one is for Dr. Scholl's Active Series inserts. They are pretty awesome and help reduce the shock/injury while running or working out. I put them in my running shoes and they make my feet feel amazing! More on those later. And for anyone wanting to join Influenster- I have a few invites left! If you're interested just let me know and I can email you one :)
I have a friend who does photography and she was looking to take pictures of someone with tattoos for a specific type of shoot she wanted to do. Well, I have a few tattoos, and I've never had professional pictures done before, so I figured it would be fun. It was! Here is just one shot she showed me so far. It was hard posing and trying to look good when people were walking by watching you, but I think this one came out pretty great! I loved her ideas for backdrops and locations and I'm excited to see the rest of them. Check out her photography page here!
And book lovers- do you ever read so much that you get different book series mixed up? It happens to me all the time. I've been not-so-patiently awaiting the release of Veronica Roth's 3rd book in her Divergent trilogy, but I realized I totally forgot everything I read in the first 2 books. I guess I need to do some re-reading so I can dive into this one!
