Smiles...



One of my best birthday memories of this year happened without me, but I smile everytime I think of it. While we were in New York City my sister treated me to a spa treatment. So, while I was with her, Andy had to find something to do with the boys. They decided on the ESPN Zone, but first they made a quick stop into Sephora for a birthday present for me. The boys have been in Sephora with me before and ultimately it ends up with me, asking one of them, to stop playing with the make-up or the tester bottles of perfume. It's way too much temptation for two boys. But this time they asked some nice young woman to help them. So she took them to the bath and body section and my men stood there and smelled each and every type of bath wash to see which one fit me the most. They settled on the guava. And I'm here to tell you it was the perfect choice. They also gave me the spray oil and the body butter (which Matt said was just plain wrong to put butter on the body...somedays he is really brilliant and then others... I'm not sure about him). But the real kicker was the lipstick that they picked out for me. Ryan was quite concerned that it was too dark, since I usually just wear clear gloss. His concern just makes me smile more.



And FYI
ilee has her new calendars up for 2010. They make great gifts and look great on your desk.

When visiting etsy I found these. I don't crochet but thought they looked really cute. Her shop has some cute stuff in it. It's Saturday...time to go shopping!


Happy weekend everyone!

Oh, gosh! I LOVE the image of the boys in Sephora, finding you something. (Especially contrasting it with the image of you going in there WITH them, trying to shop for yourself, because I'm guessing THAT is not half as fun. Or at least it's not when I do it!) And I LOVE ilee (thanks to you, I might add!) Will definitely check out her new calendars!

Great story about your guys in Sephora! I don't really mind my kids touching everything when i'm shopping it's just that i can't actually pay for anything because the littlest one refuses to stand in line and prefers to run around the store unattended! oh, well we usually just leave with very soft skin and no purchase. Thanks for the link to the calendars. And I too wish I knew how to crochet!
