A Puppy and Her Pig

My sweet little girl's fourth birthday is Thursday!  {Can I just say, that I can't believe that the underweight puppy we adopted is going to be four already!  It seems like just yesterday she was staging the great escape out of her zip-up kennel and causing minor destruction of my apartment while I was at work!}  Tom and I were already planning on going to Petsmart this past weekend to pick her up some more dog food and I decided that I would get her a birthday present while we were there!  I picked her up a Kong tennis ball-material retriever toy {we got Tom's parents' dog one for Christmas and every time Elli goes over to their house, she automatically goes looking for that thing!}.  Tom pointed out the "indestructible" pig toy that we always look at while we are there, but never buy. Something convinced me that I just HAD to have this toy for Elli.

When we get home, we drop the bags in the kitchen and go to the guest bedroom to let Elli out of her kennel.  She immediately runs in to the kitchen to inspect our purchases.  Before I can get to the kitchen, I hear the shopping bags rustling and she has the pig out of the bag!  So much for waiting until her actual birthday!!

She is absolutely in love with this pig.  It is so big, the only places that she can pick it up to carry it around are the ears and the nose, but that doesn't stop her!

I am so glad that I just decided to spend the money on the "expensive" dog toy--her happiness is all that matters! {We are in BIG trouble when we actually have human children...I am going to have S-U-C-K-E-R written on my forehead!}

Current Makeup Favorites

I by no means am a beauty blogger, but I do love when I find great products.  I wear makeup on almost a daily basis--I just feel like it makes me look much more put together even when I'm just running errands wearing yoga pants!

My go-to brand for makeup is Bobbi Brown.  I have been using this brand since high school and, while I've found other products I like from other brands, I keep finding myself going back to Bobbi Brown time after time.

Without much more chatter, here are my current favorite makeup products...

What are your favorite makeup products right now? I am always open to trying new products!!

I am so behind in posting, but good news! We got a desktop computer for Christmas, so I will finally be back to having a working computer. Which means, lots of posting to my blog!!

This year, we had tons of pictures to choose from for our Christmas card from our wedding pictures, so I went with a collage card from Shutterfly.

Here is our Christmas card from 2012:



I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Years and I cannot wait to be back to blogging regularly!!
