April Favorites

We've reached the end of yet another month. How does that happen so quickly?

Since it's Friday Favorites time, I thought I'd do another end of the month favorites/recap post all in one. 


Let's begin, shall we?



I met people

 



I cooked. (Which never ever happens!)






I updated my pages.

I partied. 


My Nanny turned 90 this month!

C's Last Fling

Woodland Baby Shower





And it was super scary!




I 'bon-fired'. 
Yes, I made that into a verb. 

First bonfire of the year! :)




I had niece-time.






I decorated. 

Print from Hobby Lobby for my dining room. 

Back door

House # for front door.

I snuggled.





April has been a busy month and I've had a blast. Here's to May!

Currently: April Edition

It's about that time.....
How has April flown by so quickly, y'all? Sheesh.



Reading

Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman



I'm basically reading while in car line for job #2, so I get in several pages in that time frame. Unfortunately, that's about the only time I read, so it takes me awhile to get through a book. I'm anxious to see what the uproar is about. 

Listening To
Country. That's pretty much all I listen to. Newest faves are:


And obviously all of my Pop2K and 90s on 9 on XM radio. That will never stop.

Wearing

Layers. I love wearing layers! Also- My favorite jeans from Target and my new Yellow Box Flip Flop. I bought the graphite stones instead of clear, and this is seriously the most comfortable brand of flip flops I own. 

Watching
 Netflix, as usual.



I'm trying to make my way through Season 3, but it is sooooo slow. Killing me.

and

Real Housewives, of course. I can't get enough!
Dallas....New York....Beverly Hills. I'm watching them all!


Needing
A landscaper! The previous owner didn't finish anything she started, in terms of landscaping, and it's a mess. Holes in flower beds, weeds everywhere, dead flowers along the side, and empty spots where she didn't finish putting rock down. As you can see in the very top picture, I have lots to do. And did I mention I hate hate hate yard work. Ugh.

Wanting
To paint my office and bathroom. I've got lots of things on my "to-do" list, but those rooms are at the top. I just need to get over my apprehension, buy the paint, and get started!


This room will be a bright coral; won't that look awesome with my leopard chair and ottoman????

Avoiding
Well, if you've read this far, you know I'm avoiding painting and landscaping. I need a handyman. Anyone?


Looking Forward To
My little baby nephew will be here in just a couple of weeks. I can't wait to meet little Owen Lee.


See the shower I threw for him here

Feeling
Happy.
Ya know, it's a good feeling when, even though there are always things you want to happen, but you just feel happy and good and at peace. Yeah. I'm there.

Bag Review and What's In My Bag All Wrapped Up in a Video

Well. I did it. Probably one of the most embarrassing things I've ever done. 

I videoed myself. 

And NO! Not one of those videos! A you tube video of my new bag review and a what's in my bag. 

Watch. Tell me what you think. Be brutally honest. 



So tell me.... do I have a future as a you tuber? I'd love to hear what you honestly think!

Let's Talk: Hair & Makeup

This will be a scary post for one reason, and one reason only. 

Bed head. 


It's real. And it's scary! 
And no, I'm not ashamed that I shared that for the world to see. 

Erika and Andrea are talking today. And they're talking about hair and makeup routines. I try to keep mine short and sweet. Here we go....



After hitting snooze one or two times, and taking the dog out, 
I head to the bathroom to put my face on. 

I keep all of my makeup in one of these little containers. It's not very organized, but my bathroom vanity is tiny, and there just isn't room for organization. 



I pull my hair back, and slather on this moisturizer sample from Merle Norman. I love it. 



Then I paint this on my face. 



And top it with this for a more matte finish. 

NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation Medium Beige

I am such a fan of these Mary Kay eye shadows. I've used them for years. While I've tried others, I keep coming back to these favorites.
Moonstone
; Granite
; Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color / Shadow ~ sweet plum


Next goes the eyeliner (Cover Girl is my fave), and then the mascara. 

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Mascara (BLACK) Full Size

And then we go to the hair. Y'all. My hair is a nightmare. 
It never curls the same, is always frizzy, and will look totally different by the end of the day. 

Because it was so crazy this morning, I decided to use the curling iron and create some loose curls. I've been on this method for about a week, but I'll probably get tired of it, and go back to the easy way. 



And we're finished.



The only product I used today was this big sexy hair spray. It has major hold, which I need if I want to see these orchestrated curls in a few hours. 

Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Hairspray

And here's the finished look.  


Ready for Monday....or as ready as I can be. 

Share your hair and makeup routine; I'd love to see how you get ready!
