Card Samples

It’s saturday night 10:49pm and I AM DAMN PRETTY

And I feel like talking about nothing…LOL!  I went out on date night with hub-o-rama.  I wanted to go to the mall SO badly to buy makeup.  MAKEUP… I already had my fill of stamping supplies today (bought the most STUNNING paper(new basic grey-PHOEBE)… got my favorite scissors, mini paper clips-see sample below (did I mention how HAPPY those made me?), a fresh black memories ink pad (i am sick in the head for THAT making me happy), the newest and COOLEST prima flowers with polkadots, GINGHAM (yes GINGHAM) and solids.. umm how many brackets am I using here??? not sure if I closed them all off or if I left you hanging without a last bracket (OMG I AM PEEING IN MY PANTS RIGHT NOW thinking about these brackets and my grammar (do you spell it that way?  OMG ANOTHER BRACKET).. )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) there.. everything should be closed off and finished.

Ok, back to makeup cuz that’s what I feel like talking about OK? I am sure no one is interested.. I won’t go into gory details I promise.  but I bought SO MUCH.. found this new Bare Minerals collection.  I am SO IN LOVE with it.. foundation, setter, eyeshadow, bronzer and YES a special *CASE* for the foundation for your purse.. yes, ANOTHER CASE.. LOLOL.  this lovely gentleman at Sephora saw DOLLAR signs and DESPERATION in my eyes when I walked in.. *giggles* and he showed me everything he could possibly show me in 15 minutes and I TOOK EVERY SINGLE THING (even bought brushes and brush ‘shampoo’).  Ryan went to Sunglass Hut ( like you care) and left me and as I was gathering my treasures and was at the cash I was praying that he wouldn’t come in… as she rings up the last item and the total is BLARING on the register, I feel a tap on my shoulder… I jump.  It’s him.  HIM.  He saw the total.. then he saw the perfect GLOW of my face.. the SHEER happiness in my smile and he looked at me and said “you look beautiful”.  And I gave my VISA, and I paid for my goodies in a shiny black Sephora bag.. and I left the store proudly (and ‘brokely’.. is that a word?) and I was SOOOOO HAPPY.

Today was a GOOD day my sistahs

  5. sounds like an awesome night! my DH always goes into Hat World, so I can relate! also got my first set of Bellas yesterday and can’t wait to ink ’em up!! supa cute – love them!!

    Don’t you just love Bare Essentials!! What an awesome hubby for compelementing you. Enjoy! Last night was date night for us too — 1st one in a LOOOONG time — I was sitting there and all of a sudden I just about screamed, “OMG, I forgot to put on makeup!” Came home at 10:30 and he went to his computer, so I played with my Bellas. (Hmmm, maybe I should have remembered my makeup, LOL!)

  7. I am so the exact same way. As soon as I walk in Gap I tell him to just go somewhere else. Unfortunately, he always comes back so then I try to distract him with the baby. In the end he doesn’t care but I always get so nervous. I’m lucky I don’t live near a Sephora because I always go wild in there. Unfortunately, doesn’t help my cause. Have fun with your new makeup!!!

  9. LisaBella says:

    Oh sounds like you had a great date – and a great day!!

  10. Julie Masse says:

    Emily you are tooooo funny!! My husband and I went on a “date” yesterday too – only the first part was to a funeral 🙁 (someone we know’s mother). Anyway, then we went to the mall (first time in like years!!!) and bought a BED!! Am I a total freak for being soooo excited about a new bed???? Well, having 3 (almost 4) children and a Full size bed for 7 years (you know how the little ones almost always end up in mommy & daddy’s bed???? why is that???) – we decided to buy a king. So, 1 hour and lots of $$$$$$$ later (some supplied by good ole’ M-I-L) we have a new select comfort bed coming. Ok, sorry for the long comment . . . just had to let you know, we’re with you all the way!!! Glad you had a great time!!! I’m off to play with my bellas! 🙂

    OMG! Finally, something I can get excited about too. I’m so happy you jumped on the Bare Minerals bandwagon, because that little purse compact? Is delicious. I knew you’d get it after drooling all over mine :).
    I’m sure you look beautiful – as always- wif or wifout your minerals.

  16. Kisa says:

    I love Bare Escentuals! You missed it on QVC just Saturday night – I think it was! It was a today’s special value! I’ve been using it for 5 years – I think and I love it! Make sure you check out QVC – you get great deals!

  17. Heidi says:

    I love reading your blog! Always entertaining 🙂 My favorite things in life (besides my family) are Makeup and papercrafting so I had to chime in.
    Did you know that MAC has a new collection coming out this week? It is called Barbie! I could just scream I am sooooo excited! It is pure beauty so if you have any money left go check it out. So cute! LOL

  18. Melissa says:

    You and your blog are going to get me in trouble! Of course the most time in my day to read it is when I’m at work and I’m laughing so hard and trying desparately not to attract any attention and the bathroom is too far way!!

    How sweet your hubby is! Hope you had a super awesome date night.
