Another month checked of of my calendar and we are officially in my birthday month. I am super excited to be getting my birthday treats and having a great second Mother’s day. I cannot wait for the day that Dean makes me Mother’s Day gifts from school. Speaking of school, that will be a big topic for me next year in regards to Dean. I was discussing it with his EI Speech therapist and I realized that he won’t be in mainstream classes. Since Dean is nonverbal, he will have different goals than the other kids and after kindergarten, will be separated and put in the “special” classroom with the other children that have autism, down syndrome, and mental handicaps. Part of me is glad that he won’t be made fun of and the other part of me is sad that he’ll be segregated from neurotypicals. I have very mixed and raw feelings about this right now.

That is it you guys. Really small empties post this last month. I am hoping that May will be a bigger month, because it is my birthday month. If I am going to be using some stuff and pampering, this will be the month for it. I am hoping to finish off a face powder and a lip gloss this month. Anything else will be a nice bonus, because I am not focusing on anything. I am just enjoying the stuff that I have and using it up will just follow naturally. I don’t want to use stuff up for the sake of using stuff up, you know?
I cannot believe that today is the first of March! Another month has come and pass and now another month has come to be. This month I have a few favorites to share with you. Let’s see…I have one beauty product to have the spotlight on for this month, but we will wait until later in this post to bring it up and talk about it. First off, my number one favorite this month was going to Monster Jam for Valentines Day, which was really nice. I’ll show you a few pictures down below. It was an unforgettable experience that I will treasure forever.
Another favorite on mine was the two vacation days that I took in February leading up to the Monster Jam show. It is nice to take a long break from work and to just relax and de-stress. My hours also changed this month, which was nice. The hours suit me better and give me more time in the evening to blog, read, and cook dinner. I’m more of a nigh time doer anyway.
My two unfavorites of the month were busting up my toe and Shadow being diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. On the 16th of March, Shadow is going back to the vet for blood work to see if the food is working. If not, she will have to go on medication for her condition.
My favorite beauty product of the month was…a candle! Yes, you heard it hear. It was a delicious Blueberry Cheesecake scented candle from Home & Garden Party, a store that no longer exists. That is how old my candle is. I think it was bought for my 6th birthday, because I was really into smelling candles. So, I kept it for the longest time. I am burning it now. It is a little mason jar candle and it smells incredible! When I light it, my dad always asks if I’m cooking desert. It has that fresh, home baked scent that makes your home very inviting.
I also want to tag on a few little bits that I bought at Kmart today. I bought Scrubbing Bubbles for my bathroom based on a recommendation by Danielle. Is this the right kind? I already used it on my bathroom today and I thought that it did a really great job. Speaking of which, you could do cleaner reviews. I’d like to know what products you think are best.
Okay, so I cheated. I bought myself a candle, even though I have not finished a candle yet. It is Glade 2 in 1 Candle Fresh Berries & Wild Raspberry 3.8 oz glass jar. It smells like Spring and it was only 3 USD, which is cheap for a candle. I never know what to do with the little glass jars. I have I think two empty glass jars right now just sitting in my room. I have a bigger one for holding q-tips. Maybe, I will make one of the little ones hold q-tips and turn the big one into a makeup brush holder? That sounds like a project!
I also bought a new hairbrush. Right now, I only have a knockoff wet brush detangler. Now, I have a brush that I can use on dry hair to brush it out and to style it a lot easier. It is by Goody and called Smooth Blends. It is infused with ceramic and natural boar bristles to enhance shine. I really like the look and feel of this brush. I’ll let you know how I like it in the long run.
And finally, I bought a new tooth brush. It is Oral-B 3D White Luxe Soft Toothbrush with Stain Eraser that gently removes stains. I thought that this would be a nice introduction to whitening my teeth. I’m taking baby steps to whiten them. I’m going to use this toothbrush. Then, in a month, buy a whitening pen to use. Then, upgrade to whitening toothpaste and mouthwash. Finally, if my teeth is not to my desired whiteness, I am going to buy the strips. I have sensitive teeth, so I want to introduce everything gradually.
That is it for now. Did you buy anything? What was your favorites?
