Today, I spent my bithday $ on new Jane Iredale makeup; seen here. I got the liquid minerals, powder spf, and circle/delete concealer. I got these at a local spa, but would also love the sample palettes with eyeshadow/blush/lipstick on the website. It's been a long while since I got new, quality makeup. But honestly, with the frequency that I have to replace drugstore makeup, I'm not sure that I'm saving that much money by going cheap. My mom used this for a while after a spa visit and I tried it on and loved how airy it felt. So I'll let you know how I like it over the long run. Pre-boys, I was a makeup/skincare junky. Some women are clothes/jewelry junkies, but not me. I guess wearing scrubs a couple of days a week takes the fun out of the wardrobe world for me. The boys, young as they are, do not understand these girly purchases of mine. Why in the world would I not buy myself the latest megatoy? They looked at me as if I had just written a formal letter to Santa requesting only socks and underwear for Christmas. The hubby partially understands these ' for me and only me' purchases. They are good for the parenting soul.

I must admit that we southerners feel a need to take multiple views of our homes and yards whenever it snows and these pics are rather misleading regarding our normal climate. We are working diligently at 'staging' our home for quick sale (dreaming, I know) this spring. And then there's the matter of balancing those boys in the midst of all this change...it should be an adventure. Will post updates and moments of insanity as they occur!
