What's in my makeup bag?

First of all, I don't wear makeup very often. I should. I always feel better when I take the time to actually get ready, dry my hair, put on makeup, and all that. But, since you asked (even though you didn't), this is what's in my makeup bag:

Bare Essentials foundation and blush, Smashbox foundation, a couple of bare essentials eyeshadows and liners, and mascara.

Interesting, huh?

In other news, today was Christmas for us. Since we're leaving town tomorrow, we decided to celebrate today. Alice got a new play kitchen. I set it up last night and decided to nap on the couch until erik got home from work at 2 so that we could finish putting stuff up together. I woke up to the sound of Alice playing with the kitchen. It was before Erik got home since he got stuck on the freeway. Alice immediately walked over to me and said, "I want to cuddle with you" she seemed to know that she wasn't supposed to be down there playing, but didn't know what else to do. I took her upstairs and started asking her what she saw since I was only half awake and not quite sure what had happened. She told me:

"I was calling you, but you were asleep. I came downstairs and you were asleep. I was playing with my kitchen in the front room. I was making Spadetti"

It was hard to be upset with her, even though I really wanted to see her face when she first saw the kitchen.

Also, Erik got me a Kindle. It is awesome. I love it already! It's the year of the Kindle.  So many people we know are getting them :) Its a good thing for amazon, I suppose.

Our favorite place to eat

We have lots of favorites. Pretty much any time we can go out and not have to cook at home, it's a good thing. Our favorite lately has been:

It's mostly b/c of the free kids quesadilla with strawberry. That thing is really good and free kids food is ALWAYS appreciated. :)

The last item I purchased:

The last thing I bought was groceries. Among other things, this included potatoes. We are doing Raclette tomorrow with the Breakfast Clubbers, and we are in charge of the veggies. We'll also be doing a gift exchange white elephant style.

This Christmas has been the most spread out Christmas I've ever had. We had parties as early as the 12th, plus Alice even had her own party this year. It's been awesome. I'm excited to continue into the week of Christmas :)

The song

This is the song that has been stuck in my head for the past little while, and the only one I can think of to match my mood. I am so excited for Christmas!

There, Bridget. Are you happy? ;)

Dream Wedding?

I tried to write a post off of the prompt about my dream wedding... but it's too dumb of a prompt. I think that marriage is important, but not weddings. Don't get me wrong, I loved mine and seeing so many people i love there. The ceremony was great, but it was only the two of us plus... maybe 30 people? So... the wedding itself was pretty small scale which I guess was always how I pictured it.

In other news, in the past 3 days, 3 of my friends have had babies. How weird. My baby is no longer the babiest baby anymore. He's growing up and getting more interactive. I love his smiles and coos. I'm so ready to get his hair cut, too. It's getting out of control! We'll get it cut by a friend's mom when we're in CO, just shortly after his 3 month birthday. I can't wait. he'll look so cute :)

An animal I'd love to keep as a pet

Don't you think that a miniature elephant would be the cutest thing? Can't you picture it tromping around the house? Instead of a dog barking, you'd hear the little trumpet when someone rings the doorbell. You'd never lose anything because your elephant would always remember where you put it.  How awesome would that be!?

I hope that miniature elephants would be cuddly. And not bite.

Me 2 years ago

This is me and Alice at Sushi for Santa 2 years ago. I don't feel like I look much different, but Alice has changed a lot. :)

Favorite picture of my best friend

I haven't actually called someone my "best friend" for a long time. I have a lot of good friends, and we all have a different relationship dynamic. Some of my closest friends have stayed the same for years and some have changed. Since this post is looking for my best friend, though, I'll post a picture of the 2 people who I last remember really calling my "best friend"

I actually don't have very many pictures of them on my computer so I guess that this is my favorite b/c it's pretty much the only one I have :)

A perfect first date

Seriously, I don't think I'm very picky when it comes to dates. The only thing that I would have wanted out of a first date is for the conversation to flow naturally. I don't like awkward silence, especially when you are trying to get to know someone to see if you would like to continue dating them.

Erik passed the first date conversation flow test.

Right now, the perfect date would be to go somewhere fancy dressed up nice (not completely formal, but nice). No kids, which would mean that Jack would have to be happy taking a bottle. We're still working on that. Though I do have to say that I love taking Jack to the movies b/c I can just cuddle him the whole time.

We saw Tangled today and it was surprisingly really cute. I thought it looked dumb, but Mom convinced me to go. Alice loved it and I loved watching her watch it.

A photo of something I ate today

So I'm totally cheating on this one since I was really busy yesterday with building our shelving unit in the laundry closet. Yesterday, something I ate was:

It was the 2 piece meal with salad. It's ridiculously good. If you've never been and you get the opportunity, go.

We still have a long ways to go on the shelves, but we got the hardest part done.

A picture of me and my day today

Here's a recent picture of me from our trip to Disney World. Alice loves riding the carousel and we were lucky enough to have grandpa get a shot of the 3 of us (Jack was riding in one of the stationary cars with grandma)

So that's me. I don't really look that blond lately, so I guess it was just the lighting.

My day today has been relatively uneventful, though I guess when compared to other days in the life of a stay at home mom, it's been pretty normal. I held Jack for a nap since his swing wasn't plugged in and I didn't want to find another outlet. Then a friend came over to drop off some supplies from cub scouts yesterday. She had subbed for me since Alice was sick :( I hate it when my kids are sick.

After that... I ate some cold pizza for lunch and put Alice down for a nap. For the whole morning, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was playing in the background.

Right now, there's a load of whites in and I'm listening to our washing machine do this weird gear grinding thing that it's done for the past couple months. It's not a good sound. I'm looking forward to our new set that we are having delivered on thursday. They stack, so we'll be able to use the other half of the laundry closet for a pantry :)

Speaking of our new set... does anyone need a washer or drier? They still work (besides the gear grinding thing... and the drier doesn't have the auto dry feature anymore. That broke some time last year) and we're looking to get rid of them for maybe $50.
