Sweet Home Alabama!

Heading to Alabama today to see my sister, brother-in-law and nieces!!! I haven't seen them since Christmas ... that is a long time for us!


This picture was taken going over the Arkansas River. So pretty!

We aren't telling the girls - just showing up to surprise them! They are 6 and 3. I'm going to try and get it on video. Should be fun!! I'll try to post it later.

We are going to be near Huntsville, Alabama. For those that have been there or are from there, what are some must go to places that we need to try? I really want to make the drive to Memphis to try out Neely's BBQ!

Tarte & Epiphanie

I've been wanting to do a post about these two products because I love them so much!  I got them both from the Hubs for Christmas.  He did good!  What girl doesn't want her stocking jam packed with makeup?!?!

Ok, so the first thing is the Tarte Cosmetics NeutralEyes Eyeshadow Palette - Volume II.  This is my go-to eyeshadow every morning.  Even if I am using other eyeshadows, I always come back to this one and use a few of the shimmery ones to blend everything in.  And I can't say enough about the packaging!  I thought it was a clutch at first.  It came with their emphasEYES Aqua-gel Eyeliner in Brown, which I am absolutely in love with.  It may be my favorite eyeliner right now.  A brush and primer were also included.  I'm not sure if this is still available in the stores since he got it at Christmas but I did find it online here.

See, I told you - looks like a clutch!

Notice: While getting this out to take a picture, I dropped it and the one on the top broke.  So. Very. Sad.

Aren't these pretty colors??  The top row is all matte and bottom is shimmery.  I love it because they all compliment each other and you pretty much can't go wrong.  My kind of eyeshadow.  

My next favorite thing right now, is my Epiphanie Camera bag.  I searched and searched for a girly camera bag because I didn't want a plain black one.  I wanted the durability and functionality of those bags but I wanted it to match my style.  I found this website and I was like a kid in a candy store...candy website...whatever!

Isn't it just LOVELY?!?!  This picture does not even do the color justice!  And the little camera makes me smile every time I see it!  My favorite thing about this bag...it's lightweight.  It doesn't hurt my shoulders from carrying it around all day.

On the inside, there are all these compartments you can put several lenses in.  I use one for my wallet when I'm using this as a purse.  And yes, I do use this as a purse when I know I'm going to need my camera.  

Here are two more of my favorites from their website.  

These are a bit pricey but worth every penny!  Especially if your hubby buys it for you! :)

Snow, Dessert, and Valentine's - Oh My!

It snowed in Oklahoma City this week!  Loved it!!  I just wish it would've stuck for a little bit longer.

Front door Valentine Decor - got it at Gordman's.  They always have such cute holiday decorations!

Ally didn't know what to think of the snow at first but then she loved running and playing in it!

Had our monthly cousins/aunts lunch this week - we go all out on dessert!  We each get something different and then share :)

Here are my office Valentine decorations.  I got them at Kohl's last year after Valentine's on clearance!

We played Secret Cupid at work this week - here are my goodies!
My person knew me so well!

Love these coasters!  These coasters gave my person away because she has some and every time I'm in her office, I always talk about how cute they are.

Love this potpourri bowl and the back scratcher!!  Who doesn't need a back scratcher?!?!

These were from my boss - these are quite possible my FAVORITE chocolate candy!  We always steal them from her desk so she got us all some.

David sent me flowers - love his corny little poem!

Then I came home to this.  He has always done cute little drawings on the envelopes (I love that he is cheezy)  He also surprised me with tickets to a weekend yoga workshop that I've talked about ... he DOES listen to me!!



Yummy!!!

Here's are the chocolates I got him - my envelopes are BORING!!!  Now you know one of the cheezy names I call him...gag!  lol  Sorry for the blurry pic - Ally jumped on me as soon as I took it.  I got him tickets to a comedy show.

We got Ally one stuffed toy because as you'll see...they don't last long!

Sweetheart Blog Swap Reveal

I have to be honest...I've lacked the motivation to blog lately.  It's been almost a MONTH!  But - I have managed to cross off a couple more things from my 30 Before 30 List so I haven't been a complete slacker!!

I recently participated in a Valentine's Bloggy Swap hosted by lovelies Savanah and Ashlee.

I was paired with Katie - she sent me this AMAZING cookbook all about cupcakes.  She's a girl after my own heart!  I love everything about cupcakes (except the calories) - check out my cupcake proposal here


Look at some of these fun cupcakes - I can't wait to start trying them out!  The hubs will need that golf on :)


Thank you so much Katie!  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
