I know I've been slacking on posts lately, but my family and I have gone through a lot in the past month.
From sickness to a passing of a family member, it's been a rough time.
I promise to start back to normal posts after Thanksgiving, and maybe a few Christmas gift ideas for my husband and maybe yours!

Have you heard there's a new Cinderella movie coming out?!
I just finished watching the trailer and can't wait to take Bella to see it!
I loved Cinderella as a child and hope Bella will too.
Here's the trailer... Enjoy!
Cinderella hits movie theaters March 13, 2015!

I'm finally FINALLY back to normal and not horribly sick! Woo!!
When I'm in a rush (usually at 5 a.m. getting ready for work) I tend to either put on a light eyeshadow and a great eyeliner or skip the shadow all together. It's easy and actually looks pretty without all the fuss of figuring out which color eyeshadow looks good with my outfit/other eyeshadows.
And let's face it, I'm lazy when it comes to makeup in the mornings so the faster the better.
I've found my perfect quick as can be eyeshadow & eyeliner combo.
Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance in Champagne - This is a primer and beautiful eyeshadow in one! I love love love the color & it lasts all day! They have 3 colors to choose from (a light yellow, champagne, & candlelight) but champagne is definitely my favorite! Also, when you order from their website they send you good sized samples of a few of their other products!
Almay Intense i-color Liquid Liner - I use the Topaz color for blue eyes. (I actually have green and it looks amazing on with them) This has been my holy grail go-to eyeliner for years, but I hated because it wasn't waterproof and would come off 1/2 way through the day. Then I put it over the shadow insurance and it literally did not move, bleed, anything all dang day! It's perfect together. The best thing about this eyeliner? It's around $5!! Heck yes!
What's your favorite products on the go?

Sorry I've been MIA for the last week or so, but I've been pretty sickly lately.
Without going into too much let's just say blogging on strong pain meds isn't the smartest idea, so I'm just going to post a little quick diddy here and will start back posting once I'm up and around again.
Last night Bella had a Veteran's Day show at school. The Hubs, Grandma, Grandpa, & I all went to see and cheer her on and she did awesome! Here's some pics from it. So proud of this little girl!!
She's so lucky to have such amazing grandparents!
They show up to every show, every game, etc.
These kids did amazing last night and got big cheers from the entire crowd!
Way to go 2nd graders!
The 3 of us after her show.
Bare with me, I had no makeup on and feeling not so great, but wouldn't have missed her show for the world!

Halloween weekend is finally over...
Friday was crazy and Bella was exhausted and asleep by 10 p.m.
We had a great time trick or treating and celebrating with friends.
Saturday morning Bella had her playoffs for flag football. They played their hearts out and Bella almost made a touchdown! We were so proud, but unfortunately they lost 14-12. Tough game but the Texans did amazing and we're so proud of them!
Bella and her coaches!
She's already talking about playing again in the Spring!
My sweet girl was so proud of her newest trophy!
All her trophies are proudly displayed on our mantle.
Sunday we relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
Bella wasn't feeling 100% so we got her into the after hours doctor and got her on some antibiotics.
By the end of the day she was still moving slower than normal, but feeling much better.
It was super chilly out all weekend (God Bless America it is finally not sweltering!) so I made my mom's Sausage and Mushroom soup for dinner.
It was delicious and a perfect way to end the weekend!
