Joining Hallie (and Jen) this week for the first time ever. Hallie, by the time you read this, I hope you have a baby in your arms! And Many Happy Returns!
Visiting this home made me simultaneously appreciate the beauty of the home and its art, realize the impracticality of living in a home that doubles as a museum to your art collection, and recognize how far I am from ever rubbing elbows with "old money." But I'm ok with that. Doesn't it look a tiny bit like Longbourne? You know the Bennett family home in the only Pride and Prejudice film whose existence I acknowledge.
3. Old Navy Denim Jacket- How did I live so long without this staple. Houston, please hold onto spring a little bit longer because I love wearing it! But why oh why don't you have pockets?
Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick- After reading this review of it on The Small Things Blog, I decided to give this long wear color a try. It goes on smooth, then goes through a sticky phase where I don't recommend smooshing your lips together, and then sets to a matte shade of the original glossy color. While the color does last for hours, but I made the mistake of thinking that since I have similar coloring to Kate of Small Things, I got the two lighter colors she reviewed. They didn't really work for me, but if my grocery still has the $2 off Revlon products coupon, I think I'll give it a try in the color pictured about, "It Girl."
Smoothie King- Some people join gyms for New Year's. Mark and I joined one the day after Easter. And signed up for a personal trainer to boot. Hopefully, that price tag will keep us motivated the whole year through. Our first session was today and the anxiety I experienced beforehand was eerily similar to pre-confession anxiety. But it went great. Our trainer wasn't too peppy, did nothing to make us feel terrible about our past choices, but did work us hard. I wanted to die after the first 5 minutes. But now, I'm basking in that post work-out glow that only a smoothie can make better. Don't worry, it was dinner. We didn't just undo all that good work. In other news, it had been so long since I last pushed myself that hard that I completely forgot I have exercise-induced asthma. I know that sounds made up but it's a real thing! Time to find that inhaler.
