I AM GOING TO NEW YORK!!! Well my next little adventure out of the south will be to the "Big Apple". I am so excited! My mom, my sister and I will be going to New York in March. I have so many things that I want to do and not sure if I have enough time to fit them all in! We are planning on staying in Time Square. My mom has booked us a Sex In The City Tour and Momma Mia on Broadway. This will be my first Broadway show! We are also planning on going to FAO Schwarz(the toy store in Home Alone).I hope to go to Jimmy Choo's too!

This is going to be so much fun! My sister has never flown before so this will be an experience for her! I love to fly! So if anyone knows of some things you must do in New York post me a comment!

Thank You!!

My Weekend Treats!!

Well I had a great weekend. I spent some time with my parents, made an Alabama football blanket (I will post it tomorrow!), and then went shopping today. My mom spoils me with all kinds of things...she is truly the best! Here are my weekend finds..enjoy!!

1. E.L.F 5 piece professional brush set( which I LOVE)
I only paid like $5 for all of them and they are soooo soft!

2. Lancome Absolu Foundation( its the best)
I am trying this for the first time. I love the way it feels and has great coverage.

3. Lancome Mauicomplet Concealer(miracle in a tube!!)
i have been looking for this stuff all my life! I wish I would have knew about this long before now. I have a few red splotches on my face and this stuff makes it disappear!!!

4. Lancome Photogenic Loose Powder(and I got a free gift)
This powder is amazing. My mom was telling me about it. She uses it and it has somewhat of a shimmer to it. I like it a lot too!

5. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Body Oil
This is actually a very good make up remover its good for dry skin. You use it to remove your make up and mascara and then you use you face wash. I love it!!

6. LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara
So one of the blogs that I follow, Kelli, talks about this mascara a lot. Mascara is my favorite thing out of make up. She swears by it , so I tried it and now I am hooked!!!Its the best mascara ever!

7.Rimmel Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
This is really good for stubborn "water-proof" mascara and it doesn't burn your eyes. I use it to try to get all of my mascara that the oil doesn't get.

So I am going to love playing with all of my new things! I am so excited about them all!!I also got a free gift with my make up. I haven't had a chance to play with it all yet so I will have to update you on my other "goodies".

Tomorrow I will post pictures of my new Alabama blanket that I made. I <3 class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_8">soooo cute! They are so easy to make too!

Well I hope that everyone else had a great weekend!!

E.L.F ~ Eyes Lips face

Today as I was looking around on blogger I stumbled upon a girl teaching how to do a "light make-up". I loved the brushes that she used and cute eye shadow. She had a lot of good techniques! She tells you where you can find all of the things that she uses and where you can find them.
I logged on to the E.L.F website and found the make-up is cute and inexpensive. I looked up what stores carried it, so I am going to check it out and keep you all posted!
I love this kind of stuff! It makes every girl smile!!

I started today on MyFitnessPal. This website rocks! You can find any food that you can think of in their database. You just log what you eat daily and it adds it up for you! You also get helpful tips from other members on the message boards. It tracks your progress and lets you manage your weight loss, exercise, daily foods, BMI and all kinds of other stuff!

I am enjoying it so far. I haven't found one thing that the do not have listed in their food database. So if you are attempting on loosing weight or managing your current weight, you should check it out!!!

Good Luck-

The G2 by Pilot

To some this may be a stupid post. A post about a pen? Well, this isn't just any pen. It's the G2 by Pilot. I absolutely LOVE this pen. I have several in my purse, because it's the only pen I like to use.

They come in a 2 pack and you can get them almost anywhere. I always grab a pack when I go to WalMart ( I would hate to not have an extra).

It may sound really silly, but since I have to write a lot I wanted to find a pen that I love. Thanks to my friend and co-worker Stefanie, I am now hooked on this pen.

So if any one has to write a lot like I do, you should check it out( sure you will <3 it!) By the way they come in "bold" and "fine". Fine is the best , bold puts out a little to much ink.

Hope that you enjoy my silly "pen post"

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So many women are affected by this disease each year. I am sure that everyone has a story to tell about someone they know that has battled Breast Cancer and I want to share mine.About a year ago I started working with one of the Cardiologist at Mobile Infirmary. I had known his nurse before I started working with him and she is one of those memorable people that you just don't forget, her name is Charlene. Charlene and I would go every Wednesday to Monroeville, Alabama and have clinic at one of the offices up there. It makes it easier for the people that cannot drive all the way to Mobile to see their doctor. So we got to know each other more and more and became good friends. In April of this year Charlene was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I hated so bad to know that she was going to have to battle this horrible disease. Not that I would want to see anybody have to struggle through it , but especially not her. I knew that she was and still is a very strong person and I knew she could beat it. I also knew that she would have a long road ahead of her, but with all the supporters on her side she could do it. She had the tumor removed and started Chemotherapy in the beginning of the summer. She had a total of 8 treatments that she would have to take ( 4 of one and 4 of another).After the 2nd or 3rd treatment she started to loose her hair. She went through many treatments that were bad, but not horrible. After the first treatment of the second type of Chemo she knew that this one was going to be the worst. She even worked while taking her treatments! Even though many days she just couldn't make it she put forth a lot of effort. I cannot imagine taking Chemo and working. So for that Charlene I applaud you! Charlene has been such an inspiration to me. She is such a sweet and kind person who has done so much for me. She is a great person to work with as well. Thank you Charlene for all you have done for me, you will never know how much it has all meant to me !

Charlene is one of many that have fought this disease and I am sure she will not be the last. So to all you women who have fought it - Congratulations!

Please support the Cure for Breast Cancer!

Starting My Blog

I have been thinking about starting a blog. It seems like it may be a fun little "outlet" to share things with my friends and family. I am learning how to get it all set up, so if you have any suggestions....I am up for them.

Hopefully it will be fun and creative! I think I am really going to enjoy it!
