Shopping for beauty products … who knew it could be so shocking?



Last week my brother and his family were in town. Yay!

My niece is 13 (isn’t she adorable?) and really, really, really into doing her nails. This is a girl after my own heart; I, too, cannot resist the glitter and glam of nail polish. I totally get her obsession. Painted toenails makes the world a happier place. That’s such a reasonable perspective. Thanks to my niece my toenails are currently painted emerald green, and I have to admit, I love ’em!

Anyway, on one of our outings we stopped by the local Ulta to check out their selection of nail polish, scrubs, body polishes, yummy smelling shampoos and hair doodads. And then we made the mistake of wandering over to the lip gloss aisle.

Matrimonial bliss



A little over two weeks ago I headed out to Oklahoma for Jack’s sister’s wedding. We threw her a bridal shower, helped out with the wedding preparations, partied with family and friends and of course, attended the wedding. I’m happy to report that all went swimmingly. The happy couple were indeed married and are currently basking in matrimonial bliss on the beaches of St Thomas.

While they are basking the rest of us are recovering.

More photos shortly.

Sorting … sorting … sorting.

Need more beer.
