Product of the Week

This little gem has changed my skin! boscia Make-up Break-up Cleansing Oil is the ultimate in clean skin. I have combination skin that is very prone to breakouts and I was worried to even test this product. Boy, am I glad I did. Yes, when you apply it to your skin (dry skin) it is an oil. I massage the oil into my skin for about a minute or so and then rinse with warm water. As you rinse the oil turns white and rinses completely clean. It is so weird how your skin isn't oily at all. Afterwards, I was with an acne wash, but there is no need to. This oil removes even the toughest waterproof make-up and leaves skin so cleansed and balanced!

Ink Pins

I'm totally in love with tattoos! They are intensely personal and I always love to hear the stories behind them. I have one tattoo on my foot and one day I will share it with you soon.

I'm sharing some of my favorite tattoo pins this week. I love each of these, the placement and the meaning, and would get any one of them.

10 Things

10 things you probably don't know about me...

1. I love to mark things off a list. An actual list, not a list on my phone.
2. I also, do not like digital calendars. I am the old fashioned paper calendar planner type of gal.
3. I am very particular with the type of pens I use. Bic Crystal pens (blue or black) and Papermate fine tip felt markers (multi colored pack).
4. I am obsessed with Peach Cobbler. It is my favorite dessert!
5. I will only eat medium buffalo flavored wings. They are called Buffalo Wings, not lemon pepper wings or jalapeno jack wings!
6. I occasionally cheat on Words With Friends-Yes it is true. We all get stuck sometimes.
7. I'm a total facebook stalker. Don't judge! You do it too!
8.If I'm at the beach/pool/lake I have to read a paperback book. No hardcovers or electronic books here.There is just something about curling the cover backwards.
9. I talk to my parents EVERY DAY!
10. I enjoy killing weeds. I get great satisfaction our of spraying weed killer and watching them turn brown over the next day or two.

Hope you know me just a little better now.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

It Happened

Yes, it finally happened. At first I was petrified and then when I realized what had happened... I was THRILLED!

Although it means time is passing and sometimes too quickly, I still can't believe we have hit this milestone so early.

Want to know what happened???


Yes, he did. Every night since Thursday. 

Friday morning I was jolted from bed at 5:00am paniced that something was wrong. I rush into Ben's room to find him sleeping so soundly. I almost cried he looked so perfect.

Saturday and Sunday mornings were much the same.

So I hope you have a well rested week!

I'm Going to Miss This Face!

I have enjoyed the last two weeks with Ben. I took a break from blogging and only did the minimum at home to savor my last 2 full weeks home with my little man. They were great! He is growing so much, sleeping longer at night, responding to our voices and silly faces.

So today is bittersweet. While I enjoy working, what I do and the awesome people I work with, I am going to miss this face.

Product of the Week

As you know by now I love coffee. It is my drink of choice in the morning and the worst part of making coffee in the morning is that I haven't had a cup yet to help me.

I'm usually a grind my beans and brew kind of girl. Fresh ground coffee is like no other. I won't use one of the single cup brewers because WHO JUST HAS A SINGLE CUP IN THE MORNING????

When I work I greatly enjoy an afternoon cup around 3:00. Not for the pick me up, but 1. I love coffee and there is nothing better than a fresh cup! 2. Meeting up with all of my wonderful co-workers and chatting while it brews.

I usually enjoy my up of Joe with a little half and half and sugar, but thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law I have found this amazing creamer!!!!

This has the perfect creaminess and sweetness without being too much. I don't even need sugar!

I have been pairing it with Starbucks' new Blonde roast.

They have two different blends, Willow and Veranda. Both are amazing! I prefer the beans that I can grind, but it comes already ground. Target usually has it at a great price ($7.99 a bag).

This has become my go to cup of coffee in the mornings. I'm sure when I head back to work in a week I'll miss it in my afternoon cup I am sure to have.

Grab a bag and a bottle and enjoy every last drop!

Book Swap


 I'm back! Yes, I now have a working computer and my beloved laptop will be returned to me tomorrow. Even better news is my hard drive was not damaged so all my graphic and photography work is safe! No more backing up once a week.

Ok, now on to what I missed on Monday. Heather @ Blonde...Undercover Blonde hosted another book swap. I entered and was paired with Jennie @ Well Shut The Fron Door (who is so hilarious and has an amazing blog you MUST check out!).

Jennie and I have quite the same taste in books and she sent me two great pics.

She always wanted to belong...just not to a dysfunctional pirate crew
Juli has trouble fitting in, though she'd prefer to keep the reasons to herself. But when she mistakenly stows away on a ship of misfit corporate castoffs, her own secrets become the least of her concerns.
He knows plotting a diamond heist may be considered unusual behavior...
But Alex isn't feeling very normal when his unscrupulous boss kicks him to the curb. Meeting Juli doesn't do much to restore normalcy to Alex's life either, but it sure is exhilarating!
As Alex and Juli bare their secrets-and a whole lot more-they find that while normal is nice, weird can be wonderful.

This book made me laugh so hard and was a quick read. Very entertaining and a must read for the summer!

Yes, my swap partner was that awesome that I received a second book.

The fast lane is much too slow for Rachel Walsh. And Manhattan is the perfect place for a young Irish female to overdo everything. But Rachel's love of a good time is about to land her in the emergency room. It will also cost her a job and the boyfriend she adores.

When her loving family hustles her back home and checks her into Ireland's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, Rachel is hopeful. Perhaps it will be lovely -- spa treatments, celebrities, that kind of thing. Instead, she finds a lot of group therapy, which leads her, against her will, to some important self-knowledge. She will also find something that all women like herself fear: a man who might actually be good for her.

Thanks to Heather for hosting and Jennie for being a great partner!

I'm not missing!

I know it has been FOREVER since I posted. Just a quick update...

The motherboard on our computer crashed. My lifeline to the Internet and blogging has been taken away and sent to be revived and will hopefully return shortly. In the meantime my AMAZING husband has taken an old desktop to a computer repair man to be spruced up so I can be reconnected to y'all while my laptop is gone (approximately 2-3 weeks). I should be up and running in a day or two. I'm not a phone blogger. Too time consuming and while I'm pecking away at the keyboard I often forget what I want to say.

Until then...

Pinterest Picks

Sorry this is late. I'm still without a computer and attempting this on my phone.
