Favorite Products

If you know me personally, you probably have figured out I am a pretty low maintenance girl when it comes to grooming. My philosophy is less is more...I also think its much better to use one great product than wasting money on a whole bunch of so-so ones. Now, by NO MEANS am I any kind of expert in beauty products (the idea is laughable!)...but these are some of the things I use almost daily that I love!

Sebastian whipped cream goes on so makes my curly hair manageable and makes my straight styles a breeze.

I LOVE Philosophy products. This love affair started when my fabulous mother in law came to visit a couple of years ago and I noticed her skin was RADIANT! I had to know what she was using and I was introduced. Philosophy is well worth the money and I especially love this moisturizer!

Oh Stila...where have you been all my life? I haven't tried the smudge pots yet but I hear they are great. I currently am in love with the above shade "kitten." Its sheer enough to wear everyday but also special enough to turn heads.

Bad Gal by Benefit: Best mascara I have tried. Hands down.
My mom asked be if I curled my eyelashes! Nope, I Just use this fabulous mascara!

Nars Blush in Orgasm (sorry, this IS a family friendly just happens to be the name) This blush is beautiful! It will make you beautiful! I promise!

Cetaphil- Everything! I buy it in bulk at Costco. I am a nurse so I wash my hands a zillion times a day...I also have super dry and sensitive skin, so winter time= very unhappy skin. Cetaphil cleansers are great for hand and body washing and the moisturizers will leave your body silky smooth!

So I would love to hear, what are some of YOUR favorite things??

A sweet valentine treat

I found these suckers at Sprouts a while ago and A LOVES them. I am on a mission to have healthier food in our this is what I sent for Valentines treats to school this year.
They are made from real fruit and are all natural with some interesting flavors. One of my philosophies in getting kids to eat well is to make sure they are exposed to lots of different spices, fruits, and vegetables...not just the ones you see everyday.

I believe our Savior hears us when we cry to Him.
I believe He answers prayers.

Tales of my unsupervised child, cont.

I think this is a picture of the TV?
Hungry Hungry Hippo anyone?, I guess this is what happens when you leave your camera out...

Cowboy Day at GCS

So R called me at work last week to tell me Annaleigh had "cowgirl" day at school the next morning. We had been out of town and apparently had missed the memo. If you didn't know, I am a nurse and work the night shift, so I knew I wasn't going to have time to go to the store to find something so I kinda had a freak out. Russell told me not to get upset because he had already gone to the store and found her a western shirt. Whewwww....Daddy saved the day AGAIN!!!

Winterfest 2010

We are so blessed to be able to work with such a great group of kids in ministry. Our wonderful parents and sponsors make our jobs a joy because of all their love, support, and encouragement!
