I thought that I would share a few pictures of my trip in June to see the monster trucks. My dad loves going to these events every year and this was his father’s day present from me, especially since he has been so supportive about my decision to have and raise the baby. He really wants to help and is looking forward to taking care of a little one again. He’s even felt the little one kick once. It’s funny that she’s already kicking, but other people cannot always feel it. I have hypersensitivity, so I sensed his kicks pretty early on. I also cannot take my medication while pregnant, so that is why I have been so sensitive to everything. The medication numbs my heightened sense of feeling, so I can be normal. Where my stomach digesting my food doesn’t send me into a frenzy of pain. Anyways, here are some pictures from the event to enjoy.
Wow. I cannot believe that it is July already. Half of the year is already gone and it is just so exciting! I don’t have a lot of favorites, but I do have a few. I loved getting my ultrasound pictures and seeing my baby for the first time. It really made everything real for me, more real than what I was already feeling anyway. It was really fun to go to Monster Jam again with my dad. We really had a blast all day long, even standing in line for two hours was somehow fun. I also had a yummy snow cone, so there was that. Otherwise, I loved ordering and getting my Erin Condren Life Planner. I loved decorating the month spread and my first week spread as well. I don’t think I did any other fun things though. I don’t usually have very eventful months, just years.
I enjoy the little things in life really. I didn’t really buy anything this month, except some clothes and things. If I use up a lot of my stuff this month, I might indulge in a Victoria Secrets/Bath & Body Works haul this summer. Oh! My dogs got their 3 year rabies shots and their licenses to walk around. The tags are bone shaped and PURPLE this year! So cute. Anyways, I’m happy that my dogs will not need to go back to the vets for three more years, unless they develop problems. Serena still needs her three year booster and a checkup though. Shadow needs her blood work in September along with her booster as well. So many appointments to keep track of! Anyhow, that was my month in a nutshell.
I’ve been a little naughty today on my day off of work. First, I went and bought my Monster Jam tickets online today for June for Father’s Day. He’s so excited to be going again and I have to say that I am too. It’s growing on me. What can I say? So, I will be having pictures of the event coming soon and I’ll make sure to get a couple of pictures for myself as well. I then have Birchbox points burning a whole in my pocket, so I had to spend them. I paid 10.79 USD out of pocket for 62.99 USD worth of stuff! I had 30 USD in Birchbox points, a coupon for 20% [takeoff20] that took off 9.60 USD, free shipping worth 5 USD, and a free sample gift package with purchase of 35 USD or more worth 10 USD. I had so many great deals. I won’t tell you what I bough though. It will be an upcoming haul post. I will tell you three of the brands though: Stila, Paula’s Choice, and Yes To. These are all brands that I have tried before and loved. I’ve never tried what I bought though, so fingers crossed! I will be back tomorrow with my Perfume Collection post. Have a Good Friday for those celebrating like me and have a Happy Friday for everyone else.
No meat until Saturday and making a big roast. My bf says hi. lol. He says he’s gonna die of starvation before the lamb roast on Sunday. He’s so dramatic. Yay for sleep over parties. Love Ya!
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?
