We Want to Know Wednesday: Week 40

This week is all about makeup and style.  My answers are a bit boring since I've never really been much of a girly girl.

{1} What is your "can't go without it" beauty product/cosmetic?
Um.....shampoo?  LOL  seriously I don't use a whole lot of product for anything. 
{2} Do you apply make-up before or after doing your hair?
If  I even wear makeup I'll put it on after doing my hair.  My hairstyle now is pretty easy and I just blow it dry right after showering.  I usually don't wear makeup and if I do it's just some powder foundation and blush.  I don't do mascara anymore because it just doesn't agree with me because 1) My lashes suck, I barely have any bottom ones and it's a pain to apply it without it ended up all over my eye! and 2) My eyes tend to water a lot so it just ends up smearing anyway! 
3} How would you describe your personal style?


Very casual, kinda lazy!  I'm a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes girl.  If I'm at home I'm usually in sweats or pajama pants.
{4} How long does it take you to get ready each day?
I can usually shower and be ready in less than a half hour.
 {5} What is your one pamper, just for you, beauty splurge?
 I got nothin'! 
Well unless you count having my hair cut by a "professional".  I used to just go to Great Clips or whatever because it was cheap. I didn't get it cut often and  I kept my hair long and put it up a lot.   But I got sick of it being a different person every time, my haircut was different every time and if I didn't put it up it looked like crap.  So now I have someone that knows my hair and it actually looks decent without much work.

Happy Post

The things I'm happy about this week....
I completed my goal of reading 12 books this year.  I know not much, but early in the year I decided I was not reading enough.  Sometimes it would take me months to finish a book so I started with a goal of one book per month.  I reached it and even beat it by one book so far!!
Saturday movie nights with my family.  We try to do this as often as possible when the kids aren't off on a sleepover....or working now.  We watched "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper (Yum! Though he was kinda scrubbily gross in parts of the movie!)  Here's a pic just because....

You're welcome.....Hmm, random pics of hot celebs make me happy maybe I should do that on my blog more often!
Lazy plans, no place to go, relaxing at home and everybody getting along!  It's that time of year where I start wishing I could just hibernate trough the cold and snowy months!
A husband that loves me no matter what!

We Want to Know Wednesday: Week 29

Be sure to visit the hosts:  Mamarazzi , Queso and  Crazymama

{1} How did you celebrate Halloween? Trick or treating? Adult party? Trunk or treat?

We are pretty boring.  We stay home and hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters.  This is the first year neither of my kids trick-or-treated.  One had to work, the other stayed home to hand out candy.  They're getting too old for it anyway if you ask me.

Never heard of Trunk or Treat....

They did each carve a pumpkin this year.

{2} What candy is your favorite/the first thing you steal from the kids?

Usually anything chocolate is good!  But I'll go for Mr. Goodbar or Reeses peanut butter cups or Baby Ruth first I guess.

{3} What kind of candy do you give out, is it your favorite? or something you know you won't be tempted to eat?

We do a little of both depending on what we find on sale.  We hand out the stuff we don't care for as much first so if we do end up with leftovers it's the stuff we LIKE to eat!

{4} How soon after Halloween do you take down decorations and put away costumes?

Well we didn't even bother decorating this year except for the pumpkins.  Just not into it I guess, probably because the kids are getting older.  I never was much of a decorator anyway. 

{5} When do you decorate for the next holiday?

Again, not being much of a decorator I really don't do anything for Thanksgiving.  We do hang up lights on the house for Christmas.  We do that whenever the weather cooperates in mid November but don't turn them on until AFTER Thanksgiving!

We do the inside of the house a week or two before Christmas depending on when we have time to get and put up the tree. 

We don't really have any set schedule or tradition.

Happy Post


Again I had a hard time with this.  Why do I have to think so hard.  I wish it came naturally.

Anyway, this week...

I'm HAPPY because Psych is back with new episodes!  ThatsWhatImTalkingAbout!  James Roday and Dule Hill make a great team.  

I'm HAPPY because I bought my tickets for the Midnight showing of Breaking Dawn part 1!!  Going with a friend of mine without any kids this time.  Looking forward to it!

My awesome new PURPLE socks make me HAPPY!

And in the background you can see a portion of the screen on my new computer that makes me HAPPY! 
My laptop bit the dust which was the pits but we were able to get 18 months of interest free financing which really makes me HAPPY because we could not have come up with the entire amount right now and this gives us some breathing room.  I went with an all in one this time with a wireless keyboard and mouse and a nice big screen.  So far I love it! 

My daughter and I took a basic Zentangle class at the craft store last Wednesday.  It was a nice night with my girl and I also think I may have found myself another obsession.  It makes me HAPPY because even though I feel I can't draw I was able to do this!  Here are a few of the tangles we learned that night.

We learned them individually, but if you take a look at the site you are eventually meant to combine them in different ways to create some really cool stuff.  Take a look!
I may start sharing some more if I keep it up and create anything decent. 

What made you happy this week?
