Short Stories

How is it already Friday?  My days are really getting away from me.  This happens every fall.  It's such a busy time of year.  Christmas is less than 9 weeks away.  Mind blown.  

Here are a few short stories about my weekly happenings. 

1.  Call Me Casper....  I ran out of my beloved Bare Minerals BareSkin Foundation a few days ago.  I've been putting on whatever drug store products I could find at the back of my make-up drawer until I could get to Ulta.  I was still using the darker color (#3) that I bought at the beginning of the summer (this stuff lasts forever) and need a much lighter shade now that I resemble one of Dracula's relatives.  They matched me with a shade #1!  Ha!  I'm as pale as Bare Minerals deems possible.  White girl problems.  

2.  Addicted to the Sauce....  I made Pioneer Woman's (I am obsessed with everything she makes) Spicy Shrimp on Monday.  Oh My Word.  Go out and get yourself some shrimp and make this dish as soon as you can.  I honestly could have turned up the pan and drank the sauce.  I'm salivating just thinking about it.  I think it would be tasty to make chicken wings in place of shrimp.  Honestly, anything would taste amazing in this sauce.  I ate about half a crusty loaf of bread dipped in it.  Yum.  

3.  A Name to Remember.....  Ashley recommended the Better Than Sex Mascara a few weeks ago.  I'm always on the hunt for the best mascara in the world, so I've been stalking the local Ulta, waiting for them to get it back in stock.  I think it's a good sign that they're always sold out.  Low and behold, they had it today when I got my foundation.  It's good.  Real good.  No clumps, lots of drama, length, separation and volume.  Try it especially because it has a cool name.

4.  Can't Stop, Won't Stop....  Reading, that is.  I've been reading like a mad woman lately.  I have so many books to share, but I have to tell you about the last one.  It's a page turner.  Thrilling, romantic, trash.   Just the way I like them.  

5.  Champagne Taste and Caviar Dreams.... I need to give up shopping.  I swear that every time I go to a store, I fall in love with the most expensive thing for sale.  I swear it must be a gift and I need to give in and accept it.  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. 

Have a great weekend friends!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because my co-chairperson just basically quit on me for the big family night I'm planning at Baby Girl's school.  WHY ME!!!!????  I'm trying to change it up and make it easier but need approval, volunteers, more funds, etc, etc.  Please remind me of this next time I sign up to help out.  


  1. I have that same gift!!! I always fall in love with the most expensive item no matter what. I need to try that mascara- I was between that and the Tarte and went with the Tarte and it's awful!! I need to get that foundation and that shrimp sounds amazing!

  2. Need to try that mascara and shrimp. Pioneer Woman can do no wrong!!

  3. Oh my gosh, I thought I was alone. I got matched with #2 and nearly passed out. And that was like a month ago, so I'm sure I'm #1 by now...eek!! Or should I say "BOO!" Thrilling, romantic, trash! HA! I need that in my life. Ugh I still miss Twilight...nothing will ever compare!!

  4. That recipe first of all I was highly entertained just reading the post on how to make it......I need to make that ASAP. It looks so good! Second I am so with you on the expensive taste every time I'm flipping through racks I always zero in on the most expensive piece same thing with purses! It's a blessing and a curse ;-) Hope you're having a nice weekend!

  5. I need to try that foundation! I'm almost out of my MUFE HD and I rarely buy something twice...glad I'm not the only one that falls into the #1 palest shade on the spectrum of foundations!! ha!

  6. I love the shopping quote...I'm much like the girls in the Marshall's commercials lately that you see picking up the item at the boutique and crying at the price and then finding it at Marshall's for way cheap and acting as if I won the lottery :-) And OMG..the shrimp. looks. amazing! I must try it.

  7. I've got to try that recipe!! Maybe tonight?! I'm always the lightest foundation shade too. Whenever I go to buy a new bottle the lady always says let's try a different shade and I'm like nope I'm the lightest shade don't waste your time. I want to read that book now!!

  8. So glad you liked the mascara! I’m heading to Ulta this week to pick up some more since I ran out. The shrimp recipe sounds delicious! Pinning so I remember to make soon!

  9. At least they had no. 1 in stock! I am a no. 2 and apparently that is the most common skin tone and they almost NEVER have it in stock!


A toast to you for sharing your thoughts!
