Topped Off with a 'Stache

Dear Friday,

Why, hello.  It's so nice of you to join us.  I'm not trying to make you feel guilty, but... we've been waiting for you.  I appreciate that you're always on schedule, but I wouldn't mind it if you showed up early to the party every once in awhile.  I'm an awfully good planner, so I'd be happy to discuss how we can make this happen.  Thoughts?

With the kindest of pushiness,

That would be me using an old name tag of my dad's from eons ago (1980?) as a 'stache. 
It's one of my finer, sexier looks, no?


New link-up with Ashley at Adventures of Newlyweds,
brought to you by Emmy June, my Blog BFF!

And just as I do every Friday, I'm linking up with Lauren,
the beauty behind From My Grey Desk for:


I wrote my first guest post over at 5ohWifey yesterday!  I shared Part 2 of my DIY Wedding series.  Did you see it?  How did I do?  Have any feedback before I write my next guest post?

Can you say tax refund?  Why, yes, I can.
TAX REFUND!  Which needs to hurry its sweet behind to us.

Some women collect shoes.  Others obsess over purses.  I love lip balm and gloss.  Here is the newest addition:

eos Lip Balm in Sweet Mint
Certified organic and cruelty-free?  Now we're talkin'!

I won a giveaway at Miss Kait Online last week!  I finally decided what I wanted from the shop of isavirtue, and my package was sent today.  I can't wait to get it, and of course, I'll be sharing the goods with you as soon as I do!

This picture of Boone made me think of Homer's Odyssey and how much I loved that book!
If you love cats, you'll love this true story of "the blind wondercat"!
If you don't like cats, clearly, you haven't met mine.

Happy weekend, friends! 
And for all of you fancy spring break have-ers, have fun and play safely!

I like lip gloss and lip balm too. I am such an addict!

Okay I need to try those EOS lip balm. I have always loved Burt's Bees but maybe this would be good too.

Kate said...

I have a problem with collecting lip balm too (mostly because I'm always losing it!) That's funny, I just bought eos in summer fruit the other day... so far so good!

Jess said...

I just bought some of that egg lip balm, too!
I've only used it once and I'm gonna go ahead and admit that I feel so weird holding it up to my mouth...just me?! haha!

Oh look how sweet and innocent Boone is looking...yeah just wait until midnight..when you're trying to SLEEP ;)

Happy Friday, girlfraaaan!

Just came across your blog from Ashley's link-up and I love it! I am also a lip-gloss hoarder. There are probably at least 10 in the bottom of my purse right now! You have a new follower :)

Visiting from IB4M!

That lip balm looks seriously awesome. Personally, I love my Burt's Bees tinted lip balm. I needs me a little color with my moisture!

Michelle said...

Bahaha, I love your letter to Friday! I feel the same darn way. That lip balm looks awesome! I will be scouring for that. I'm a sucker for lip stuff too :)

P.S. you're so adorable. And I love the hat you're wearing in your picture!

I am in love with those lip balms.. in fact I took them for everyone when I visited home last year.. and they liked them so much they asked if I had leftovers so they can have seconds.
