No Makeup Selfie

I've never been one to wear a lot of makeup.  Growing up as a dancer, makeup was always for the stage.  I was always annoyed by the amount of time it took to put on, and inevitably it would sweat off.  As I got older, I never got the appeal of putting makeup on every day - mostly because I'm too lazy to take it off every night.  

Oliver's 2nd Birthday!

Today our godson Oliver turned 2!  We took a quick day trip up to Minnesota to celebrate with pizza, cake and presents!  He is learning so much lately, every time we see him (once every other month or so) he knows so many new words.  My favorite thing is that the kids have taught him to call me Aunt Bunny.  It started as a joke with Grant, but I love the nickname and wanted it to stick - and it has!  Here are some pictures from the day. 

Amazing Pop-up Party!

Today I threw my first pop-up boutique with a hostess I didn't previously know.  I "met" Kristin through my online VIP group - she fast became a very good customer, and she was excited to host a pop-up when I asked.  Little did I know how awesome it would be!  Her house was adorably decorated, she had great food and drinks, and a whole ton of friends who came to shop!

I love when fortune cookies seem to speak to my current circumstance:

Discontent has definitely been the name of the game for me recently...let's hope it starts to lead to some progress!

Today was a long day, that ended with a disappointing evening at a multi-consultant sale.  We didn't sell anything (not surprising since only 3 customers showed the whole night), but we were able to make a lot of trades which helped make the time worth it.  We came home to a new box of inventory which is always my favorite thing!  Today there was a beautiful Nicole in my size...and I just had to have it!  

New Game

We went to Ames today on a trip to drop off some LuLaRoe, some tax documents, and, most importantly, pick up some Spinach Artichoke dip from Sam's Club.  I know it sounds crazy to drive an hour for dip...but this stuff is amazing.  It's cheaper than buying the ingredients to make it myself, and better than any I've ever made or had at a restaurant! 

Since we were in town, we decided to swing by Joel's old game store.  When I saw this on the shelves I had to have it: 

Wear A Dress Tuesday #7

Today two of my favorite holidays merged - it was Valentine's Day AND Wear a Dress Tuesday!  #WADT can totally count as a holiday, right?  Even though I made it up and it happens every week?  You can get back to me on that.   I went with my classic red Amelia and Valentine's leggings today.  The beautiful orchid I'm hugging is something we picked up at Aldi last night for 10 bucks!  Cheaper than a bouquet and will last a million times longer?  Yes please!

After work today I immediately changed out of my nice clothes and into some off season leggings.  I've been trying to wear my leggings evenly so I don't wear out my favorite pairs too quickly.  Thus Halloween leggings in February!

Super Duper Cleaning Day

I feel so accomplished today which makes me super happy.  My goal was to get 90% of my house cleaned today - dusted, vacuumed, picked up, etc.  I say only 90% because I did not have the energy to touch the bathrooms.  A girl can only do so much in one day.  I'm proud to say I accomplished my goal, and finished a few small organizing task along the way!
