What's Up Wednesday?!?

Hubby took me to see Eclipse at the 12:30am showing. I wore this hoody, cuz I represent! We got home at 3am ... he went to work at 6am. What a guy!! No spoilers here, but I loved the movie!!
(Want one? Check out Nordstrom's BP dept.)
We went to an evening wedding on Saturday, so I had the fabulous artists at MAC do my make-up for me. Come back on Friday to see what I wore ... here is the 411 on my look:

Eyes: MAC Technakohl Liner in GraphBlack, Eyeshadow in Tilt, Pigment in Cornflower, Opulash Mascara in Bad, Bad, Black on top and bottom lashes, Brows lined with a brown pencil (didn't catch the name)
Face: MAC Studio Moisture Tint in Medium (LOVE this product and use it as a foundation to even out my skin tone, VERY light weight and is SPF 15), Sheertone Shimmer Blush in SunBasque (peachy and pretty)
Lips: DazzleGlass in Girl's Delight (not sure if I am in love with this ... it is very nude, but I will give it a few more tries)

The Way You Love Me ...

Today, we have been married 9 years. You have been my best friend for over 11 years, and there is no where else I'd rather be. You are my world ... my everything. Thank you baby for providing such a wonderful life for me and our boys. You are the most incredible man I know and I am forever blessed to call you my man. You are my strength, you are my protector, you are my love.
Happy 9 Year Anniversary, Tim!!

My Goodies ...

My title makes me wanna bust out to a little Ciara. Love that song!
This post is all about the summer swap goodies I received yesterday from a sweet girly named Jennifer. Check it out ...
An Aeropostale beach tote, Old Navy flip flops in my fave color, cute toe rings, Ed Hardy hair pins (perfect to control all my fly-aways), fun nail glitter with purple stars, a journal for all my many thoughts and ideas (I heart journals), raspberry lemon dew gum - yum, a magazine devoted to my obsession, AND these hot shades (she got 'em at Wet Seal)!!!

{Don't I look fly?}

I am loving all my gifts ... the colors, the styles ... THANK YOU JENN!!

I am really hoping everyone is having a successful swap! I have had a couple pairs not able to follow through in their communications, which bums me out for the ones who really wanted to participate. {insert sad face} If you are having issues, please contact me so I can try to help. If you already received your package, let us all know (blog about it) so we can see what you got!! If you don't have a blog and wanna share, just send me a pic and description and I will post it here on!

Wanna know what I sent? Jenn will be posting this week, but here is a pic of what I packaged up for her. I think it is funny that we both thought of some of the same things!

{Hair bands, flip flops, sunglasses, magazine, gum, nail polishes, Kiss My Face lip balm, cupcake body spray, pedicure separators and a zebra print wristlet}

Teardrops are fallin' from my eyes ...

It is June 20th. This is the weather forecast for this week. I want to cry. I need sunshine.
Sniff. Sniff.

On a serious note ...

(click on picture to enlarge)
Kyron Hormon disappeared from his school on June 4th and still hasn't been found. This little boy's unfortunate and devastating story hits very close to home. He was dropped off at school in the morning and was reported absent by his teacher. He is 7 years old. My heart aches and I have actually cried for this child to be found. I pray for him daily.
I am posting this in hopes of bringing this little guy home. If by random chance you see him, PLEASE call 911. Any other information can be reported to the tip line at 503-261-2847.
Thank you.

Post Numero Six-O-Six

Wow! Over 600 posts here on !!! I am coming up on my 2-year blogiversary (June 26th), and I have had a lot to talk about the last couple years! Ha ha!
Summertime is here (well, the calender says so, but Oregon weather still hasn't gotten the memo), which means school is out and comments are down. It is time to get outside and enjoy the heat (hopefully it will arrive here soon)!! I will drop down to 3 posts per week here on my blog - Music Mondays, What's Up Wednesdays, and Fashion Fridays. My Wednesday posts will be my miscellaneous days where you'll find product reviews, celeb gossip, giveaways, cocktail recipes, and ramblings of my week. I hope you all continue to peek in and say hi ... summer schedules definitely get a bit busier, so I will be keeping things light and fun around here!
Check in tomorrow for my Fashion Friday post ... I think I am going to dress like it is 85 degrees (it is currently 52 degrees & raining) and maybe - just maybe - the weather fairies will make the sunshine happen!

A girl can only hope.

HELP! I need somebody ...

I was given a $25 gift card to Sephora for my birthday back in April, and I have no idea what to spend it on!!! I spent a half hour in the store last week, and walked out with nothing! There is so much to look at and play with, and all the different displays shine so pretty and bright! I simply can't decide on anything!
I need some help!! What are your favorite products you get at Sephora? What brands do you adore? I will send a little gift to the person who suggests the product I end up buying!!

Fashion Friday

Still raining ... tired of posting myself dressed in jeans. Blah!

But here is some fun news!

I ran across a website while looking for that adorable green and yellow striped top that Carrie wore to lunch after the gay wedding in Sex and the City 2. Unfortunately, I haven't found the top yet (or even a picture of it to show y'all what I am even talking about), but this website, SeenON, claims to offer "Stunning Private Sales Straight From The Sets". Anyone heard of them yet? It looks like they have done giveaways in the recent past for outfits that were actually worn on TV shows (like 90210), and that they offer these private 3-day sales to members only.

Apparently they are having an event debuting styles inspired by Sex and the City on June 14th. Being that the styles are inspired by SATC, I am assuming these clothes won't be directly from the movie sets, but if you are curious (like I am) at what they will be offering, then sign up (it's free) by clicking on this link.
Happy Friday!!

Yay for Giveaways!!

My sis-in-law, Jackie is having a fabulous giveaway on her blog ... anyone want a $60 gift certificate to CSN Stores?? Ya know I do!! Head on over there and tell her I sent you!! Happy Thursday!!

What's Up Wednesday?!?

I adore Will Smith and his family. Jaden is pretty fly and I am actually looking forward to taking my boys to see The Karate Kid this weekend. What is up with Willow's style though?? That poor girl needs some fashion classes! Jada mentioned on Oprah that she likes the free and spirited style her daughter possesses, but I am thinking it is a little scary.

The MTV Award for Best Kiss went to Rob and Kristen for their kiss in New Moon. As big of a Saga fan as I am, this kiss did NOT deserve to win! It was awkward and gross, and it looked painful! Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds definitely should have gotten kudos for their kiss in The Proposal. There was no grunting involved in their kiss.

JWoww is launching her new clothing line in the next couple of weeks, Filthy Couture. Ummm ... first of all, 'filthy' and 'couture' just don't seem to pair well, and outside of the Dirty Jerz, I am just not sure how this clothing line is going to fly. Maybe Katy Perry will snag a few outfits for her next video?

I love the girl, but what is this look about?

And finally, Heidi Montag has filed for legal separation from her crazy yahoo of a husband, Spencer Pratt. Anyone else see this coming? With The Hills being in its final season, the charade must end as well. I sure hope these two got paid well to fake a marriage for this long.

Getting my wisdom tooth pulled yesterday was a biotch, but with the help of Vicodin, I am doing great today! Thanks so much for all the well wishes and sympathy! xoxo

Make You Say Ahhh ...

I am having a wisdom tooth pulled today. Definitely no fun, but I have let this one go long enough. I have had 2 removed already, and have been dragging my feet on the last two. {Sigh}
In more painful news, hubby and I have been doing abs and arms the last couple nights, and I am s.o.r.e. No pain, no gain though, right? It's a good hurt, even though I feel like my muscles have ripped apart.
Helping me through all the suffering is the excitement of seeing my boyfriend in just 22 more days!! Oh yeah!

A Fond Farewell ...

Wow! Is December already upon us? Good golly this year has flown right by! I have been a busy girl lately, hence the blog break. Unfortu...
