Getting out of my "darker clothes" rut




Can you believe it's the end of March already?!  I can't believe how fast it flew by.  I can't say I'm too sad about it though, because I have really been looking forward to some warmer weather!  I'm so sick of the cold!  The weather around here has been really bipolar lately.  One day it was close to 70 degrees and the next day we had snowflakes!  I also ended up with a cold...or allergies.  I haven't figured it out yet.  So far it's just my nose going crazy and a dry throat.

Over the weekend I did some thrift shopping!  I found so many great things too!  I'm going to be sharing a March budget post tomorrow and share everything that I bought.  So no judgement!!  I got a bit carried away this month!



 
I swear I've been wearing my white jeans constantly!  I just can't get enough of them!  I've been trying to force myself out of my "dark colors rut" that I've been in lately too.  I'm trying to get into the spring spirit and wear some lighter colors.  I just seem to gravitate more toward darker colors, I guess.

Our weekend was spent running around like crazy. lol!  We are house sitting for my father in law and feeding his cat while he's on vacation, so we've been back and forth there, grocery shopping, and summer clothes shopping for our little one.  BUT  I didn't have any headaches so I guess that's a plus!  This week is supposed to be my bad week for headaches/migraines so we will see how it goes.  Luckily, I got all my post written for the week, just in case!



Did you do anything fun over the weekend?

Bourbon, Lipstick, and Stilettos & A Giveaway!!


If there was an award for best blog name ever, I'm almost positive Lindsay would win that title.  I knew I was in blogger love the second I read the name.  I love it!  It's also great to know that someone else has the same social media pet peeves as me.  I'm not alone in my rage, and that is a beautiful thing.

As you all have probably heard me mention a bunch of times by now, I've really been on the hunt to find beauty products that I really love.  I love her product picks posts and I can't wait to give a few of them a try!  If beauty products are not what floats your boat, she's also shared a few of her tv show recommendations that I will definitely be adding to my "watch" list, and I've already started "You're the Worst" and I'm LOVING it!  Thanks girl!!

With out further ado, Here's Lindsay:

1. Tell me a little about yourself and your blog.
I'm a 29-year-old Technical Writer from Kentucky. My blog mainly focuses on beauty products and tutorials, but I'll throw posts about clothes, shoes, drinks, television, and opinions. I also do a series every Thursday called "Beauty A-Z." I discuss my favorite products and tutorials as I walk through the alphabet!

2. Have you read any great books lately? If not, what are your favorite tv shows at the moment?
I am embarrassed to say that I haven't read anything lately, aside from blogs! My current favorite tv shows are Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Mindy Project, House of Cards, New Girl, and Mad Men. I'm SO SAD it's ending next month!

3. What are your biggest pet peeves?
My biggest pet peeve of all time is rudeness. I can't stand it. I also find myself increasingly annoyed with people who have bad manners.

4. If you had your choice of one food that you had to live off of forever what would it be?
Pizza! And chocolate. Can I choose two?

5. What are your favorite 3 posts that you wrote?
Can We Stop Being Judgmental About Food
Beauty A-Z: D is for Drugstore Dupes
Go Your Own Way

You want to know another reason why Lindsay is awesome?!  She is also giving you a chance to win this super cute Harry Potter print by entering the Rafflecopter below.  I don't know many people who don't like Harry Potter.  I am a huge Harry Potter nerd and this is my very favorite quote from the book/movie EVER!  If I could enter to win, I would! haha!

The Guy Behind the Blog #2


Hi everybody!  I took a little bit of a blogging break yesterday and the day before because I had a pretty killer migraine.  But hopefully I have it under control again and can catch up on some of the posts that I am behind on.  ANYWAY, enough of that!  Today I am bringing my husband back again to take over my blog for Betsy's "The Guy Behind the Blog" link up.  Every month she comes up with new questions for us to ask our guys, so you can get to know them a little bit better too.  I like this link up because I think it's interesting to learn more about my favorite blogger's lives.  I'm nosey like that.. lol!  This is only my second time linking up.  If you want, you can read the first one here.

1. Do you have a good luck charm or ritual? (like a lucky coin, or you always used to listen to a certain pump-up song when you played sports in high school or college?)
Chris: Julie bought me a ring when we first started dating, kind of like a promise ring. It's a silver band with lightning bolts engraved into it, because she knows I love watching thunderstorms. I really feel strange if I'm not wearing it and I think its definitely my good luck charm.
Me: Awww!!  That ring is almost seven years old and he still wears it every single day!

2. What is your favorite dish that your wife/fiance/girlfriend makes for you? do you have any fun memories of a time when she tried to cook and it totally flopped or does she get it right every time?
Chris: More often than not, it's me that "flops" making dinner.  It's simple, but I love it when she makes spaghetti or ziti.
Me: He's just being nice.  I've "flopped" plenty of times!  And he's a great cook.  He makes coconut shrimp drizzled in honey that are to die for!

3. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Chris: Spider-Man.  Duh!  Or Batman... ok, let's make them fight and whoever wins that's who I'll be!
Me: hahaha!!  I knew this answer was coming.  He's such a HUGE Spiderman fan.

4. Which of the five senses is your strongest?
Chris: Spider-sense.  Duh!  Er.. back to reality.  I'd say my sense of sight is pretty good.  "I can see for miles and miles!"  (That was a Who reference that nobody will understand but me.)
Me: He does have really great eyesight.  I'm pretty jealous about it actually.  I am hoping that my daughter's eyesight will take after his though

5. Would you ever run for president?
Chris: Bahahaha.. bah. Bahahahahahaha.  Wait... seriously!?  No.  I'm not that great of an actor.  I'd just tell people how it is and likely start a war because I'd just tell the truth!
Me: Yeah, I can honestly say that I would never want that job either.  No, thank you!
