Well, it took almost 4 years, but I made it to 200 posts!

I use these products as part of my night time getting-ready-for-bed routine. I've already pronounced my love for Pond's cold cream before. It does an awesome job removing my makeup. The cleanser from Acne Free has been a miracle for me. And I love Aveeno's ultra calming moisturizer. I think I started using moisturizer once I hit 35, I should have started sooner!

Made a trip to the library over the weekend.

Jeannie Out of the Bottle by Barbara Eden with Wendy Leigh. My Granny B had this big square ottoman thing that I used to pretend was the inside of Jeannie's bottle. Who doesn't want a really cool space like the inside of that bottle?

The Alice Behind Wonderland by Simon Winchester. It's only about 100 pages. I hope it's interesting.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.

Naturally Thin by Bethenny Frankel with Eve Adamson. I loooooovvveee Bethenny.

Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella.

Happy Reading!

I like this picture. I took this in August 2009 at an Arkansas Travelers baseball game. We try to go to at least one every year and the new season starts next week! On April 19, they are having something called Bark in the Park - "Bring your canine friend to the game for free. Enjoy doggie games and a pre-game on-field dog parade!" Maybe we will bring Sheldon!

Giving up painting my nails for Lent is haaaaaarrrrdd. This is a pic from 2010 when we went to see KISS in concert. It's kind of blurry and I've got some major tip wear going on, but you get the idea.

More birthday treats! I think the B plaque is supposed to be a stepping stone.

I needed something tall next to the tv. The little bit of 'grass' that I had bought wasn't quite enough, so I went outside for branches to fill it up a little more.

I looooooooooovvvvee my wedding book. I've had it just laying on the end table, but I finally got a stand for it. And that box?

It hides candles!

I've been waiting for this to go on sale for 3 weeks now. Finally, 50% off!

I've seen a few of these magnetic boards on Pinterest used mostly for storage and organization, but I made one specifically for actual magnets. I wanted this to be a cheap project, that's why the $3 frame looks exactly like a $3 frame. I may need to upgrade, especially if this stays in the hallway. I also may need to upgrade if I ever decide to visit any more states! Seventeen down...33 to go!

These are all the rosebushes I got with some of my birthday money. I can't wait until they start blooming! Hopefully, they will bloom. I know nothing about them - how to plant them, how to take care of them, I didn't even really know what I was picking out, I just went for different colors. I decided to plant them all on the east (ish) side of the house. It's not a place that I will get to admire them growing, my plan is to cut all the blooms to put in a vase inside the house.

I had French onion soup at Panera Bread this weekend and loved it so much, that I actually made some later that night. I used this recipe, more or less. is great because you get to take suggestions from all the reviews. I get a lot of recipes from Allison's site, and I know she has a French onion soup recipe too. I'll have to try hers sometime to compare.

This is DKNY's Be Delicious and Golden Delicious Rollerball Duo. Billy got it for me for my birthday. That was very sweet of him, especially since I told him no surprise gifts this year because I wanted him to buy me a bunch of landscaping stuff. I think I'm going to return it. This is going to sound rude, but how can he not know what scents I like by now? Vanilla! Coconut! We've had discussions, especially since he's gotten me perfume before. He did say that he just wanted to get me something from Sephora because I was talking about not being able to find any of my little Sephora bags anywhere (I'm going to frame my gift bags, idea from Pinterest, will post later (much later, because I'm nowhere near starting that project)).

This is turning into a long story. Anyway, he's ok with me returning it especially since he returned the mechanic's creeper I got him for his birthday.

Today is my birthday and since it's my birthday, I'm being totally vain and posting a picture of myself. I'm 39. Wow. That pic is me at the young age of 38.

I opened cards and presents while having breakfast (crumb cake and mini chocolate cupcakes) in bed. Billy planted 4 rosebushes I got with birthday money. I think I'll go back tomorrow and get 4 more. I can't wait to have a row of blooming rosebushes. I had my first shamrock shake from Mcd's - yum. And, because I've been wearing my pj's since 3 this afternoon and I didn't feel like putting on real clothes, we got take out from Chili's.

It was a great day!

A crazy bird thing happened today. About 11:30 this morning, I noticed a zillion birds at the birdbath. Turns out they were cedar waxwings. They were scared off by something, so I went and filled up the birdbath until it overflowed. About 2 hours later, it was completely empty!

Todays library selections -

Bossypants by Tina Fey. Can't wait to read this!

Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King.

Wild Ride by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. This is the last Crusie book they have (that I haven't read), so I need to start looking around for more fun romance books after this one.

Happy Reading!

I've cut off my nails and I've stopped polishing them for Lent. This may not seem so difficult, but for me it is. Especially since I got a new polish while on vacation and I haven't tried it yet. My sister is visiting today, maybe I will force her to polish her nails with it.

And so, for my nail post this week, this is an old pic of OPI Louvre Me Louvre Me Not.

When Allison posted funnel cakes on her blog, I commented that it looked so easy that maybe I will give it a try. Well, it took me a year, but I finally gave it a try! And they were easy, and so good that I'm sure I will be making these again soon.
