I love our Granite counter tops but man the cleaner can get quite spendy. So today I am whipping some of this up in a big spray bottle and saving myself some green :)
Head over to Eighty MPH Mom, where you can win a pair of iWave Earbuds (2 winners)!

for the last three years I have become a Shutterfly addict http://www.shutterfly.com I have received photos and photo holiday cards, once even I used their birth annoucements http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-birth-announcements It seems in the two of the last three years we have added two more kids. I keep a holiday card from each year to show how my kids have grown. This year will be no different. I will be getting my new card from http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/holiday-cards
Last year we did a beautiful snowflake theme on a red background with three pictures of my little ones. This year I am looking at the Merry & Bright 4x8 photo card it is a one picture card with a beautiful cocoa brown theme and what makes Shutterfly is they offer awesome promotions including the current 20% off of holiday cards http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery
I will continue to be a loyal Shutterfly customer and receive my digital prints for my scrapbooking. Shutterfly makes getting prints from your digital camera beyond simple with a high quality product :)

My mineral veil came in the mail today and my elf concealer came yesterday...If my husband would quit running me into the ground with work I could actually do my makeup...I have tried three times today to apply it.
I decided that not only would I be working on myself I would completely change my families whole diet so we could be as healthy as we can be. I have been getting all of my recipes off of www.sparkpeople.com Which is an awesome resource and we have had good luck with taste and satisfaction. Thanks to Paige for the recommendation I will be trying that mask.

I exfoliated my face and used my normal cleaner. Then applied that fun acne solution followed by the all natural emollient. Let that soak in and then I have to find the concealer brush dab and tap and hide the bags under my eyes, Then I apply the all over mineral foundation followed by bronzer. Then had to fill in the eyebrows and set them. Eye shadow came next, three shades to be exact and I had to hold tissue under my eye so that none of the eyeshadow spilt onto my face (it was mineral eyeshadow so it can drip) I did the top eye in gold eyeliner, then applied mascara, followed by a darker gold on the bottom.
I am looking at my bikini wax and my preggo belly and wondering how in the world I am going to manage to wax myself with such short arms. This should be interesting, After that I am planning on a mani/pedi. I really need one and deserve it. Well tomorrow should be interesting since i get more of a break

Last night I went ahead and washed my face with St Ives make up remover/face wash and then patted dry of course then I followed with Got to Be cucumber face peel. I felt like I had that mask on forever but once I took it off my skin did feel softer. I went online to my favorite store (eBay) and got some great deals on Bare Mineral foundation and Mineral Veil (which I have used and loved), Elf concealer (which I have never used but am willing to try based on reviews) and then I went on a search of skin products wow there were so many on there. I found a great deal on a face mask with Caviar in it....seem so luxurious but frivolous (I may break down and try it in the future) I cannot wait for my make up to get here I am really looking forward to the mineral veil and the concealer as this pregnancy is wrecking havoc on my skin.
Today I exfoliated with St Ives Invigorating scrub and then washed with my St Ives facial cleaner. I put on my acne medicine followed by some natural emollient. My skin still feels soft today. Now for makeup...sometimes I wonder why I even bother since I wear glasses most of the time. I have to get my contacts in the middle of the month. Then I have to do my hair and keep myself looking fresh all day as I take care of my kids.....this should be fun like I said
