I take my vitamin every morning. I got my flu shot. I did everything right. Wash my hands, use hand sanitizer.

I guess if you're going to get sick, you're going to get sick.


I'm sick.

Flu? No. Swine Flu? Nope. STREP! I have strep! UGH!

The last time I had strep was when I caught it on the plane on my way home from my cousin's wedding.

I do not like being sick. I hate being sick.

I've had a sore throat and headache since Monday, but of course I've been self-medicating myself with orange juice, chicken noodle soup, and some throat drops.

I guess I needed a little something more. Something like penicillin.

Oh well. Guess its part of working with 5 year olds and all their lovely germs!

Keep washing your hands and taking your vitamins everyone! Pin It

Bare Escentuals

A few weeks back (when we were in Charlotte on our girl's weekend) Holly and I were both in need of some new makeup. We went to Sephora to see what we could find. We decided to try out the Bare Minerals system from Bare Escentuals. One test run later and we both were buying kits.

If you don't know anything about this makeup, it is a mineral based makeup that goes on as a powder but covers like a liquid. You can build your makeup based on the amount of coverage you want. If you want a lot, use more of the powder. If you want a light coverage, go lighter. EASY! I also love the fact that it is a pure makeup with only 3 or 4 ingredients in it. I truly believe it is better and more natural for your skin.

I must say I have been very pleased with my purchase. I was so pleased that when I was in NYC a few weeks ago I stopped at the Sephora on 5th Avenue and had my eyes done with the Bare Minerals line. I ended up buying it and I'm loving it!

I began to get a little low on my foundation and was dreading having to drive out to Ulta to get it (I know, I far)! Much to my surprise my mom told me the best news ever - the mall now has a Bare Escentuals store!!! I took a trip there last weekend and Mom even ended up buying a kit. Of course she is having a harder time adjusting to the makeup, because it really is a whole new way of applying makeup. I hope she sticks with it, because I know she'll love it!

So for all of you out there looking for a new makeup or just want to try something new I totally recommending trying it out! You won't be disappointed! At least I think you won't. What about you, Holly? Pin It

Yesterday I went to a new dentist. Everything went great. (I even had a parafin wax treatment on my hands while I had my teeth cleaned.) At the end of the visit the dentist came in and started doing the standard exam. She started looking at my teeth and the first thing she said was, "WOW! You are quite the teeth grinder!"

Excuse me?

She then asked me if anyone had every told me that and I said no. Apparently the amount of enamel I have worn off my teeth indicates I have been doing it since I was a child! She couldn't believe how much enamel has been worn by me at my age. GREAT!

I then told her it made perfect sense because I do have jaw soreness in the morning and I've always been a HUGE stresser/worrier. I don't think I actually make grinding noises when I do it but it is more of a clenching thing. Dave says he never hears it when I sleep.

Anyway, the dentist said she would like to see me in a night guard. I asked her for how long and she said, "the rest of your life." That tells you how much damage I've already done! :(

Do any of you out there have a night guard or grind your teeth? I'd love to hear some feedback. Pin It
