Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

One Week!

One Week from today I will be in Florida! YAYY! About darn time. LouLou needs a vacay STAT. The fam and I still do family vacay ever year (I know, I know, STILL) and I love it. This year Lil’ LouLou’s boyfriend is coming with. 
{Sidenote: How cute are they? Don’t they just make you sick?}
Should be super fun! They are actually in Vegas this week with his family, and will go straight to Florida with us! Lucky bish. 
Baby Lou and I (seen below as a kangaroo) will probably stick together and patrol the beach in search of bud light lime and underage boys. 
I KID. I kid. 😉 
We are gonna tone it down a notch this year on family vacay. Last year we got grounded if you will, HA! We were a little wild. My dad turned to my mom at one point said “I’m not sure when it happened, but we went from Blues Clues to Booze Cruise” I mean seriously mom and dad, what did you expect taking three 20 something girls on a CRUISE for a week. We ran those night clubs 😉 
So this year I plan on relaxing, and reading this book…

while lounging in some of my new VS swimsuits,

with a skinny girl ‘rita in hand. 
That’s all for today 😉

    HAHAHA omg, when I was 17 and my sisters were 15, we all went on a family cruise and of course, legal drinking age on the ship was 17, so you know I was buying up those vodka bottles, and my sis and I had a freaking BLAST running amuck. Oh, memories…
