Echo Echo Echo & Giveaway Winner

Have you ever talked into a microphone? I did for the first time at my sisters wedding and let me tell you, it is a little weird. You hear your echo which kind of throws you off when trying to speak. I had my Maid (Matron) of Honor speech all prepared and I practiced it to ensure that I wouldn’t mess up but then when I started speaking, I heard my echo which caused me to stumble over my words a little bit. And then when I would turn my head to look at my sister during my speech I would forget to move the mic with my head so people couldn’t hear me and I’d have to repeat myself. I guess hosting any sort of awards show, like the Gramy’s, is out of the picture for me due to my inability to speak into a microphone. At least everyone said my speech was good and my little mistakes made it cute and added personality to the toast. And the wedding was beautiful and me sister was absolutely gorgeous so all was a success!!!

P.S. The SkinCareRX Giveaway winner is Marisa- Broke With Designer Taste. Congrats!!! Email me to claim your prize.

The Wonders of Lotion

This probably isn’t news to you but… lotion works wonders to make your skin soft and silky! I know, I am a little behind on the times with this information but I just discovered how great lotion is. It has never been a part of my daily beauty routine until recently. I think its that I’m just too cheap to buy lotion. One bottle could buy me some ice cream. And when it comes to ice cream or lotion, ice cream wins. But recently I decided to splurge (I bought both ice cream and lotion) and my skin is thanking me for it. I’m so soft now!

My sister is getting married this weekend to Austin, my husbands best friend since 2nd grade!!!! I’m the Maid (actually the matron but I don’t like that word) of Honor and the hubby is the Best Man…so fun! The hubs and I set them up (yes, you can call us Cupid or The Cupid Couple) and we are so happy for them!!!!
Let the wedding festivities begin!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

You might remember my post Life of the Mint Jeans, where I told the story of the short life of my mint jeans and what led to their destruction. They put up good fight the whole way through but sadly, they didn’t make it to the end as mint jeans.

Well, here they are reincarnated as lime green shorts! Yes, these are the same bottoms just with a whole new look! Hopefully their life as lime green shorts will last longer then their life as mint jeans.

If you are dying to destroy your mint jeans and make them into lime green shorts, just follow the steps in this post to create the look 😉
