It’s my birthday and…

So, last week was my birthday and it was kinda a big one.

35.

I’m not old per se, but I’m not exactly young either.  I’m thinking that’s why this number feels a bit different than say 33 or 34… not a bad different, just well, different.  Like I should be doing those things I said I would do for my health.  My gosh, that sounds like something an old person would say!!

With that in mind I decided that I would VOW to do two things every morning.

1.  First thing, drink a tall glass of water.  I wake up thirsty and then what do I do?  Drink coffee – no bueno.

2.  Wear a “real” sunscreen everyday.  (Apparently, products with SPF aren’t good enough?!?!  Then why do they make the bloody stuff?!?!)

And so far, so good!!

To treat myself, I also went out and bought what any 35 year old should have….a kick ass skin serum.

Caudalie Elixir  Now, I don’t know if this works (it’s only been a week) but omg, I lllooovveee the smell and the feel of it.  Curious what a dry oil feels like?  It really is a dry-oil.  I mean, it’s pretty amazing.

And wondering what my fabulous boys got for me?  Well, they nailed it.  I’m SO EXCITED!

I can’t wait to curl up in here, watch the boys swim and read a book.  Like a REAL book.  Like I used to.  And relax.  (My blood pressure just went down dreaming about it!)

It’s on back order, but I will share details as soon as it’s in my powerful grip.

And even though I got some fab-u stuff, yes, there were a few items still on my bday wish list.  Maybe next year?  Or maybe one of you will snag up one of these?

White S Chair; I think these would work well at my breakfast table now that we don’t have enough chairs for the whole crew, Bare Minerals; a glowing complexion?  Yes, please, GM Yoga Meltdown; one of my mom GF’s says this video is amazing.  I should just buy the damn thing right now for $8!!, Gaetano Petite Chandelier; perfect for my closet!, Paint brushes; Can’t get enough of these!, Router; would really round out my tool arsenal,  Mobile; SO curious about this – what do you think?, Cricut machine; Then I could make you some decals, wouldn’t that be cool?, Vitamix; because I could make one big batch for all the boys instead of 2-3.

Anything on your list right now??

Happy Creating (and treating yourself)!!  Jessica

Gifts for Your Sweetie – Valentine’s Day

Happy February Peeps!

And by that I mean, Happy Valentine’s Day, cause man, that crap is aaaallllll over de place! Who is gonna buy a singing dog thingie?!  Please, PLEASE tell me that isn’t you!  Sometimes I just have to shake my head and ask myself, What’s Up Wit Dat?!? What’s-Up-Wit-Dat?!? (SNL fans, you know what I’m singing!)

In my mind, Valentine’s Day is a special day to give your sweetie a laugh or small treat that they would enjoy, but maybe had never thought of.  In my marriage, we don’t take this stuff too seriously… I take an extra moment to remind myself of how lucky I am to have love in my life…from the kids, to my family and obvs, my other half.  Of course, who wouldn’t love a serenade by Bruno Mars and a crazy, romantic, extravagant evening, but after the first year, you’ll probably be saying, Oh, it’s just Bruno.  Again.

Tell me I’m not lying.

So, that’s why I like to keep it simple.  My husband?  He wants nothing more than a little extra sweetness.  Done!  As for me?  Well, I like presents.  So, yes buy me s-o-m-e-t-h-i-n-g.  Cute, small, funny.  I love it all!!

If you’re needing ideas, check it out!  I’ve got a bunch!!
