Hello Monday!

Monday, January 23, 2017

Hi friends! Happy Monday!!

I am joining my lovely friend Johannah for her "Hello Monday" link up party...and sharing a few randoms to start the week off! 
I picked up a few new items of makeup on Friday...which is always so fun!! I have been wanting to try ELF's Sheer High Definition Powder, so I got that as well as two highly rated under eye concealers! I always check Meg. O's ratings on drugstore makeup brands- check her blog out HERE! She suggested two concealers by Maybelline- so that is what I got! I bought Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer, have used it twice and I really like it! The other one I got was Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer. I am going to try that one out sometime this week! 
I shared this a couple times last week- but wanted to let you all know- today is the last day to sign up for the Nail Polish Swap Johannah, Heather, Jennifer and I are hosting!! The more people who sign up for the swap- the better! We would love if you joined us! It's so simple and FUN- just fill out this FORM and you will get paired up with a friend! You send her some new nail polishes and she will send you some! I already have my nail polishes ready to go for my friend- I am so excited to send them...I got some fun colors!! :)

Speaking of makeup and nail polish...isn't this little pouch the cutest?!? I have my regular makeup bag that I keep in my bathroom and then I keep this smaller makeup bag in my van. I throw it in my gym bag when I take a shower after I work out and sometimes- I still in the driveway while James watches a show in the van and put on my makeup! HA! You do what you gotta do, right?!? And P.S.- my adorable mini-zipper pouch in this cute charcoal polka dot pattern is on sale right now!!
And since we're talking all things about some pretty pink and red sugar cookies?? We don't let the kids have dessert during the week- but on Saturday and Sunday they get a little treat after dinner :) I made some sugar cookies yesterday (using my favorite sugar cookie mix from Aldi!!) and dipped them in pink and red sprinkles per my girls' requests :) We made ice cream sundaes with sugar cookies on the side and we had some happy kids at the dinner table! Heck- who I am kidding...Aaron and I helped ourselves to several cookies too! HA!
 It's the last full week of January...can you even believe that?!? 
Hope you have the BEST Monday and an AWESOME week!


  1. Those sugar cookies are precious!! They look so yummy! I love that graphic!!! HA

  2. I'm so excited about our swap =) And that polka dot bag is just too cute!
    I hope you have a great Monday!!

  3. Those cookies are so cute and festive. I also love the pouch. I have not tried any makeup from ELF but I am going to have to try soon! What is your favorite product from them? Have a great Monday!

  4. Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer is a game changer. I never realized how much I needed it till I ran out!

  5. I signed up for the swap, when should I be getting the email about my pairing? Thanks!

  6. Fun new makeup! I've never heard of Meg O so I've got to check her out. I should also implement your desserts only the weekend rule at my house. That's smart and your cookies look so festive. I'm sure your girls loved making them. I'm hoping to decorate for Valentine's Day today.

  7. I love the makeup finds, it's always fun to see what other Mama's love :)

  8. Ahhh drug store cosmetics are my spirit animal! I need to freshen up my nail polish bot in my bag and on my nails!

  9. Thank you so much for the sweet shout out! Those Maybelline concealers are some of my holy grail items!! Hope you love them!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
