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

She’s Baaaack!

Well hey there. 
I do believe it has been far too long. 
Sorry chics, I went a little MIA on ya. 
Truth is I had two weeks off from work, so just kinda got out of the swing of things with Christmas and New Years etc. It was SO nice not having to worry about anything… and sleeping until 10. Now I iz spoiled. 
So let’s play a little catch up, shall we?
Christmas was wonderful, got to spend time with my amazing family. I love my parents house at Christmas. 
As you can see I turned Baby Lou in Cindy Lou Who. HA. Amaze. 
Sadie however, was not as eager to embrace her inner Christmas spirit. 
But she took one for the team…
Post xmas, post CATS game, and post a few towers of blue moon, I managed to lose my camera in the beer cave of speedway. 
Why you ask? 
Because Chrissy and I thought it was a superb idea to have a beer cave photo shoot, duh. 
Luckily for all of us, the camera is now safely back in my purse. 
New Years was great also. I wore a sequin skirt and turtleneck from Arden B, and black pumps from Target. I was just going to a party at Leah’s so I kept it simple. Apparently cream coats were the thing to have that night.
Hmmm what elseโ€ฆ 
oh yeah.
I bought a new car! Woop woop!
It was finally time to retire Jeepie. So I got a brand new little white Jetta! Love her. Her name is Pearl. And yes, I thought she wanted a bow for the pic. 
So… now that we are all caught up, I figure we can start fresh with 2012. 
Going to show you all my room improvements tomorrow. Get excited.
๐Ÿ˜‰ xoxo MISSED you girls!
