Bath and Body Works Haul

As I was getting my eyebrow done today the girl doing them informed me that Bath and Body was having a sale. I don't go in there much unless I need to buy a gift or they have a sale. So they had their candles 50% off, Selected hand soaps $3 and Selected body Mist $5 plus I had a $10 off $30 

I had never bought their candles before and I had been wanting to try them for awhile but at $20 a candle its definitely a splurge. With the sale and coupon I paid $6 and some change for the large candle. I also got a sleeve for it similar to this one but mine is the taller kind. 
Lately I have fallen in love with this mist. They seem to last for a long time and I spray it like 5x each time I use them! I would have bought the matching lotions but they where sold out. 


I love their hand soaps and whenever they go on sale I try to buy more than one. I prefer the foam ones    but I could not find the pictures of them online and I was to lazy to take my own. I got Mango Berry Sparkle, Fresh Picked Pears, and Fresh Picked Tangerines.

Christmas Gift

I saw these at Journeys about one month before Christmas and I knew they where the only thing i wanted for Christmas. I emailed my husband the link with the size (a kid size since i can where those and they are cheeper than women size). I week before Christmas I asked him about it and he had not gotten them. Matter a fact when he first got the email, a month ago, the link did not work but he never mentioned that. N/e he ended up paying more than I would have for them but they did get here on the 24th!

They are super comfy and I just love the bows!

Our 2012 Christmas ornament

Last Christmas for our ornament I was looking for two doves but did not come across one I liked. This year I was looking for the same thing so I Googled it and found that Hallmark is doing a serious called "The 12 days of Christmas" and this year happens to be day 2 which is TWWWOOOO TURTLE DOVES!!! As soon as I saw it I fell in love with it. What do you think? Do any of you get new ornaments to represent something in your family?

Thrifty Find

I love ornaments and each year sinceI have been married I have always tried to find and ornament for Raul and I. Ounce Mason was born we started getting him ornaments. When ever I find a unique ornament and at a bargain I have to have it. Well at by boutique (Goodwill) I came across this glass ornament I just thought it was so pretty. I love the little swirl at the top and the different color glass all melted together. Looks expensive but I only paid $2.99 for it. I'm thinking ill put a cute ribbon on, or hang it in one of those individual ornament hangers. I would hate for it to fall off the tree n shatter a good possibility with little ones in the house. For right now I'm looking for a unique box to store it. I have to say the picture does it no justice but you get the idea.

The News

I love watching CNN and my favorite guy is Anderson Cooper ...I have to say I have a little crush on the guy! When my husband deploys I avoid the news as much as I can. I just hate to hear all the bad news and like to stay in my bubble as my husband calls it. This week I just had to watch what had happen. As I was reading my heart just ached for all the families dealing with the loss of their children. I thought about my little boy and I just cried. Such innocence in his eyes, such joy at the world he sees. I got to the point where I just could not read about it anymore or see pictures of all those babies. I cant help but think about who these kids would have become. Even though their lives where cut short I know Gods plan is greater and beyond my understanding. Praying for healing for everyone involved.

Now back to my bubble I go.

Product Rave

St Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish Control

I came across this product when I finished my Clinique scrub and wanted to try something new. I found that the Clinique scrub was a little to abrasive no matter how gentle I scrubbed it still felt harsh. I love to YouTube products and hear other peoples favorite products. I came across one review on St Ives Apricot Scrub and decided to give it a try. I bought it at Walmart for about $4. I have to say from  the first time I used it I really enjoyed it. It makes my face feel fresh and the small grains in it are not to harsh but seem to do the job. I can also feel like theres enough of them where it does not feel like your trying to move just one grain for your whole face. As for the blemish control I don't break out to often but in the last month that I have been using it I do notice my skin looking better.  This is definitely a product I would repurchase and for the price I would say it was well worth it.

Cream Corn Dip

I don't know if I have shared this recipe before but it's supper easy and it was given to me by my fellow Army wife Leslie.

1 can cream corn
1 can whole corn drained
8 oz of cream cheese
Frito chips

Put first three ingredients in a crock pot I would say takes about a hour or less half way through stir it. The corn Frito chips are great for dipping

I'm making this tonight for our works ornament exchange.

Goodwill Finds

So Sunday I headed out to my "boutique" see what I could find. The color of the week was red so everything I got was 50% since it was all red tags.

I picked up some sweaters for work , I have scrubs to wear but when it's cold it's just not thick enough fabric so casual clothes like the sweaters work great.

I got a couple of blouses one included a Nine West blouse with the tag still on! 

 This was my outfit for the day.  I got the shirt n Steve Madden boots at the "boutique" the leggings (pack of two) I got at a new store in town called Bargain Hunt they sell new stuff at a discount. My  whole outfit cost about $15.


So today I experienced a total Fail with my little guy.
Background story at the beginning of the school year they have us a calendar of events well that's what I go by.
Last week they sent a paper home saying it was going to be pajama day and polar express day. Well this mama did not notice the date had changed I just assume it was going to be for 12/14 that's Tomorrow since that's whats on my original calendar of events. Well this morning as I walked in to school first thought " masons teacher sure is dressed weird today" looked around some more and noticed everyone is wearing pjs!!! Not only that but the teacher informs me that they have to school on friday they are off for the holidays. Makes sense why pajama day was today and not tomorrow!
So what did I do ... Called work that I was going to be late! I could not get over the thought of all his classmates wearing pjs and then here is my kid with no pjs. I went home picked up some pjs and the teacher gifts I had bought for Christmas ( luckily I did plan those ahead of time) and drove back to school.

Ok you might be thinking that's my fail but it's not!

I had picked up two pjs since I know my child is picky and is better if I give him a choice.

I asked "Mason do you want to wear pjs like your friends"


"Ok choose the one you want"

He chooses his grinch pjs

I'm changing him


Mason- "mommy you FORGOT"

Yes ppl my heart sunk " yes baby I did forget And I'm very sorry"

In the process of changing him not only did he remind me I forgot but he told me 3x!!!


But being late to work worth it just to make sure my little guy is taken care even if I did forget. Makes me think how many more times this will happen!

Has stuff like this happen to you as a mom???
