Photo Friday {Week 7 - Saturday Edition}

One of these weeks I'll actually post on a Friday. Until then...

2.12 - Another day, another cupcake.

2.13 - Will you be my valentine?

2.14 - The Teeb gets major love from Kindergartners 
{yes, that's her valentines mailbox}

2.15 - Mr. Willi and Me, through 5-year-old eyes.

{Can you see the resemblance? I can! ☺}

2.16 - Post-class treat {from across the street!} 

2.17 - Why, yes, I will be starting a collection of these adorable bottles.

2.18 - Already have a collection of these adorable bottles.
{one of those weeks.}

OK, I'm tired of making goals and not sticking to them. Next week all shots will be outside... pinky swear. Wish me luck!

Happy three-day weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

This "holiday" is kind of weird... but it is another excuse to indulge in goodies {as if I needed one of those}, so I guess I shouldn't complain. My day was pretty awesome-- started out being showered with sweets and tokens of affection from my class... followed by {forgetting to pass out} my oh-so-charming homemade valentines...

...ended with this little gem that I found when I got home:

Reason no. 8,587,344 that I love my husband: He's a cornball, and he speaks the truth even in greeting cards. What a rare find, hah! :-)

Hope your Valentine's Day was wonderful!

Photo Friday {Week 6 - Saturday Edition}

Rough week-- not much photo snapping...

2.5 - Greeting. Lovely and simple design.

2.6 - Happiness. {aka} Georgetown Cupcake 

2.7 - Pad Thai. All healthy and what not, thanks to Bethenny!

2.8 - Tired. What a sleepy babe.

2.9 - New adventures.

2.10 - Hot Cocoa {aka} did somebody put some hot cocoa in my marshmallows?

2.11 - Valentine's carnations. NINE! From my kiddos. {I LVE my job!}

Well, there you have it. Last week the goal was to get outside. That obviously didn't happen. I blame the weather. A "warming trend" is supposed to swing on through next week, so my goal is to have at least two outside shots. Wish me luck!

Let's get naked...

...PALETTE, that is! What were you thinking? 

Spent a little while sweating it out on Urban Decay's waitlist, but it's finally here! 

After our wedding {and subsequent professional beautification}, I decided my face needed a little shake up from the daily routine of wearing absolutely nothing. I did what any makeup newb would do-- walked into a MAC cosmetics store and plopped myself down on a stool for a couple hours. I walked out looking like something straight off Hollywood Boulevard, but I was fully stocked with the goods to make myself look like an actual, living person {instead of a zombie}. I still haven't made the leap to everyday application, but my Kindergartners think I'm beautiful, so I'm not too concerned. 

Turns out, I LIKE looking awake—and dare I say—pretty! 

I ordered this palette out of *pure* vanity and I can't wait to play :)

It's 12 neutral shades ranging from shimmery champagnes to "gritty" darks for smoky eyes. Yum. 

The set comes with black and brown smooth eyeliner and an eyelid primer for long-lasting wear.  

Now I just need somewhere to go this weekend. Who's takin' me out?!

Photo Friday {Week 5}

I know, I know-- a day late, but here goes...

1.29 - "Serve chilled" indeed.

1.31 -  New toy - fantastic for pad thai

2.2 - Champagne Saturday Creations

2.3 - Houseguest - Meet Dierks, Tiegan's boyfriend!

2.4 - Embarrassment - "Mama, why'd you tell everyone about my boyfriend, gahh!"

My goal for next week is to get OUTside. For the most part, the last five weeks have been things around our home. I think my photos have cabin fever!

A Little Kindness...

...goes a long way!

I got a package in my mailbox at school yesterday. Here's what was inside:

A bundle of snowflake cookies and sweet note from one of my instructors from the fall semester. What a lovely reminder of the amazing support I have in my grad program.  

Thanks, Katie!
