Days Like Today

It's days like today that I reflect on my life and what I want for myself.

I want to spend my time doing things I love

I want to be a loving wife

Healthy Family, Healthy Earth

Have you seen No Impact Man?  If you haven't, you should.  I know for a fact it's on Netflix, if you have it.  Anyway, it's a documentary about one family and what they did to live an environmentally impact free lifestyle.  I found it really inspiring.  First of all, I know they saved tons of money.  Secondly, it seemed to bring simplicity back to their lives.  One thing that stood out to me, was a comment that the wife made about not having a TV.  She said the days seemed to last forever.  They would spend time doing things together, instead of watching TV or sitting on their computers.  That is an extremely refreshing concept in our increasingly electronic world.

To be honest, I'm not extremely passionate about saving the earth.  I'm cool with it, but really I care more about the health of my family.  Fortunately, for the earth, things that are healthier for my family, are generally healthier for the earth.

A Name On It

My dear friend got married last month.  They didn't have a registry, and didn't really need anything.  Hooray!  I good excuse to make something instead.  I much prefer personal gifts, anyway.
I saw this idea online and thought I'd try it for their gift.  Sorry I don't know where I saw it, but there are several resources for etching glass if you google it.

The first thing I did (after I bought a $7 casserole dish at Wally World), was sketch a bunch of  ideas to decide what to put on the thing.

Then, I cut everything out and taped it on the dish to get the right placement.

Who Doesn't Love Free Makeup?!

I went to the Bare Escentuals store at the mall, today, to pick up some more foundation.  If you haven't tried Bare Minerals makeup, you really should.  It's awesome!

Anyway, I just happened to go in during their 35 year birthday celebration.  Look at all the free stuff I got, and I didn't buy any more than what I came for!

I mean, who doesn't love free makeup?!
