Valentines Gift for...ME!

I am just about out of my basic makeup, so I decided to order some more from my favorite online makeup company, ELF. I blogged about them ages ago, but if you don't remember...they sell all their makeup (eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner, bronzer, coverup...) for ONE DOLLAR. Having worked for clinque and been involved with makeup for many many years....I can let you in on a little secret. Its all the same dang thing. It's not going to make you break out because its "cheap" Wash youre face at the end of the day, and youre all set....I used to be a makeup snob and only wear Clinique--and don't get me wrong, I love their colors...but it wears just as good as ELF, lasts just as long...and I'm not spending $30 on my coverup anymore.
Anyway, thats my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I used to coupon code MUMMY for 50% an order up to $15.

Family Home Evening Site

I can't remember if I ever mentioned this site, but I wanted to recognize the lady that runs this blog, that she is WONDERFUL.
I have debated on when I would start Briggy on FHE and Im still not so sure...I'm thinking 2 years old...
When do you all think is an appropriate age?

I know they have a lot of books you can buy with week to week ideas, but it seems like most of them are for school-age children. I came across this blog awhile back, and love all her ideas...she just lays it all out for helpful.

its geared for children 0-5 years of age.

just thought id share before I forgot to post about it again.....
my memory is so shot. preggo-brain is the WORST!

Baby Girl on the Brain

Since day 1 Tom has assured me that we are having a little girl. I was hesitant to think so--mainly because I want another cute fun little boy like Briggy---and a girl is a whole new territory that I'm not sure I'm ready to explore. But the past week or two, I keep thinking and referring to the baby as a girl.
I was right about Briggy, but the feeling was immediate. This time I feel so wishy-washy and I just want to know now!!!!
We have our ultra-sound appointment on Feb. 26th to find out the sex....and thankfully Tom will be there. (He's flying in the night before!)

I still can't stop thinking about girly things. Looking at girly clothes, how I will decorate her girly room....

Here are a few ideas for her room:

One of my favorite Heather Bailey fabrics:

I want the room to be bright/cheery and frisky. I'm not really into the baby pinks and pastels.
I want hot pink, orange, teal blue, yellow....
I think this fabric would make a great crib sheet/blankets.
The only thing I'm wondering about is if it would be practical as far as washing goes.

I like tutu tulle in those bright colors and would want them represented in some fashion throughout the room...either as a window valance, crib skirt, or table this: (but in my much cooler colors :)

Not to mention ALL THE GORGEOUS girl outfits out for spring--I love all of Carters new little girl dresses. Bright colors, polka dots, flowers...matching cardigans. Who could ask for more?

The anticipation is driving me nutso! I want to shoppppp! helpppppp!
