Ya know, every once in a while, I spend way too much money. This wound up being one of those times. I have put off buying what I needed for myself for so long that when I did finally buy what I needed for my own upkeep, it came out to be more than I anticipated. Oh the joys of being beautiful and well kept. Fortunately, my husband has no idea what it costs for us women to be beautiful for our men. Also fortunately, he doesn't get spitting angry when I go overboard. I just tighten down and make what is left work and reign it in in the coming months. It all works out in the end.

On a different note... I am attending a weekend class for my career. I am trying to get licensed as a real estate agent and am preparing for the license exam. That is where this class comes in. It is all day Saturday and all day Sunday. The next availability for the exam to be booked is the end of March. The week prior to when we go on vacation to Texas. However, I cannot book it just quite yet. Keep me in your prayers for my results when I do take the exam. I really want to pass this exam, but it does have a high failure rate. I just do not want to be apart of that statistic.

Youtube is my friend. If you watch Youtube, who or what channel is your favorite?

Here is me learning new eye makeup colors. This is the set of Mary Kay makeup. I don't remember the name but they don't offer it any more. It was one of their last summer color sets. I have been on Youtube this past week playing with everyone's makeup tutorials. I've had so much fun! I went to the mall and to the local store today to buy more makeup. I even bought an 88 color palette set off of Amazon today too. I love love LOVE makeup. And you can never spend too much to keep yourself looking good for your husband! I'll do another post on everything I bought. I even bought a new bra from Victoria Secrets. It's called Body by Victoria. It's so comfortable. Totally worth it!

Here is what the look is. Very subtle but with some pretty colors. I have a green for the bottom. A basic brown for the crease, and then a blue for the top accent. I never would have mixed green and blue in the same look, but it works here.

Please excuse the hair stuck to my lip! Lol.

Here I am!

Here is the other eye. Look how pretty it is!

Show me your makeup look.

What a bunch of cuties this breed is!

Here is Camie (the blonde dapple) and her son Bentley (the blonde-red).

I took these pictures for a couple of people that might be interested in taking her.

Here's her story.

She is the mother of my Datschund. She had to have an emergency hysterectomy immediately following her delivery of her litter. She's 2 years old now and is the most mild-mannered dog I've seen. She is an absolute pleasure to have around. We joke that we will wind up with her and be giving our dog to my grandmother.

My grandmother has 2 datschunds right now. The oldest is 8 years old and the youngest is turning 4. She has been keeping an eye out for another one since she has one getting old. So both of these fit her needs perfectly. She will be spending the day with them to see if she even wants to take it home with her. They are so precious as a pair. But we already have another dog and cannot have more than 2 dogs as per our housing office.

This has been me for the past 5 days now. I just had surgery on Monday and can only sleep in an incline position. I am fine now and doing much much better. Percocet was my friend the first few days. Now its Vicodin. He's now my friend but not so often anymore. I've been camping out on my living room couch with a rolling microwave cart holding all my things. It's quite convenient to have it hold my drinks and magazines, my laptop, and my yard for knitting. A nice break from it all, in a way. The only hard part is the not lifting my baby girl. She's 4 months now and I feed her in her swing. Now granted that is her favorite place to be, but she needs to be up and looking around now. She gets that time with Daddy though so all is not lost.

I've been watching bits and pieces of the Olympics for the first time in years. Is it just me, or is this year a good year to watch? I also watched the Westminster Dog Show. I missed the overall winners though. I just watched the showings. I did DVR my all-time-favorite show. It came on as a marathon for a few hours yesterday and the new show came on. The Real Housewives of Orange County!!!! I know I am one of the few left that still likes Vickie! I do. I like Alexis also. I would like to see more of her and her husband on there. But they are kinda drama-free which is what I like. But they are so darling together!

I should be making lists and planning our vacation that is coming up at the end of March, but I just cannot seem to be kicking it into gear. This is the perfect time. Laid all up on the couch and all... (LOL). But the drug induced sleep comes more than the fuzz free thinking does. So for now, I leave you with warm thoughts and best wishes for the rest of your day today. Have a great Friday!

p.s. There is another wonderful give-away on Kag's blog. Go here to enter!

p.p.s There is another give-away from Beth Dunn's blog Social Climbers. If you haven't read her book yet, you have to run right now to go buy it! It's filled with humor. She is also have a give-away to kick off The Preppy Mafia.

For anyone who has actually read her biography has to admit that she is an extremely smart woman. Albeit troubled and went through hell in her life, but she came out a superwoman. I am extremely proud of her and her achievements. She has made an empire for her and her future. I am not a porn fan, nor do I watch porn. However, her story is what touches me. For someone to go through the life she has led and to turn it into a success at her caliber, deserves her props. I know this is normally not the type of post that I blog about, but there are some women out there that deserve to be recognized. And I intend to show you the women that I think deserve their recognition by their accomplishments and from where they came from to where they ended up.

Who are your superwomen you admire for their accomplishments?

I am impatiently awaiting for the Preppy Mafia online to open up!! Right now, Social Climbers is having a giveaway in celebration of their new website. It is still currently under construction, but I bet it will be a great place to find all things preppy. Go check out Social Climbers and find out what you can do to me entered into the giveaway.

I am currently home and starting my recovery of surgery. So please excuse any typos and the shortness of this entry. Love you all.

Wip (Work in progress)

This is my brand new project. I haven't tried needlepoint before, but love the look of needlepoint. I may be tackling a bigger project than I can handle for a beginner. I have been known to jump in over my head before. All is good.

I had a garage sale this morning. I have two different infant seats in almost new condition out there. I stated their price to this lady that came by. I said that one seat was $50 and the newest one was $75. She immediately looked at me and offered $10. I couldn't help but laugh and say no. What did she think I was going to say? I mean really. I can sell them both online at Craigslist (my other all time favorite for reselling anything place) and actually get my asking price.

Tomorrow is the day of love. I am making sugar cookies in the shapes of hearts today for friends and new neighbors. We have 2 new neighbors that have moved in. My son's class stated that there will be no cupcakes, cookies, or anything like that. Just cards. So I have left over cupcake and cookie makings to make. Sounds like a good way to spend the day in preparation for tomorrow. And my husband has to work a long day today to make up for having tomorrow off.

I am in LOVE with my new Mac!! I am still learning how to use it, but it is so much cooler than any pc laptop I've ever had. I spent yesterday going through my bookmark of blogs and adding them to this laptop. I have quite a lot that I like to go and look at. They are my inspirations. I get a ton of creative ideas from others. One of which is the needlepoint picture above.

Well, there is a lot for me to do today. I must get off this wonderful machine of mine and get to it. Love you guys!

This is me talking to my husband while just finding Photobooth on my Macbook Pro. I am so in love with my new laptop!! I just cannot explain how cool this freakin' laptop is. I am nowhere near understanding some of the things this baby can do. I lurv it!

I am learning a new craft. Needlepoint. Since I love the look of needlepoint, I decided to have a go at it. I am still learning. Literally I have about 10 stitches started. Started. Can I tell you how frustrating it is to separate those stupid yarn threads? Frustrating. That is me. There has got to be a trick to it. What is funny is that I am listening to a You Tube video on Stillness and I'm doing 3 things here. Blogging to you lovely people, learning to needlepoint, and listening to You Tube. I am totally addicted to You Tube though. Lol. I will also figure out how to download more pictures to this baby and share with you. I have a ton of posts that I want to share with you but have been not-so-patiently waiting for this baby to download my pictures onto so that I can share them with y'all. Hang in there a few more days and I will get it down for you.

Love you all out there in bloggityville.

Today I am missing having my own computer.

Today I have a ton of stuff I need to take to Goodwill but we only have 1 vehicle.

Today my girls left me Fruit Loops all over the living room floor when I went upstairs to get dressed.

Today I am missing someone.
Today a loved one is in the hospital.
Today is the beginning of a very good month. It's my birthday this month.
Today I am excited and anxious.
Today I wish I had pictures downloaded to share with you.
