Making My Monday
If you’re wondering how I spent my Saturday night, I was online gushing about this foundation from Stila. It’s definitely Making My Monday. I have fairly good skin (finally, at 34…thank god!) but am prone to dark spots, the occasional blemish and pores that I have been told are genetically impossible to get rid of. So I like some good reliable coverage, especially around the T-zone area. This does just that, and it LASTS, without feeling heavy or Kardashian-esque.
Today, my dad and my sister both celebrate birthdays. It’s always been fun that they have a joint birthday (fun fact: Little D was born on her paternal grandmother’s birthday, too!) and seeing them both embrace another year that is sure to be an exciting one is great.
My lovely friend Erin at Such Small Steps (she works in book publishing and her blog is great, check it out!) was kind enough to offer me a box-set of Barefoot Contessa cookbooks gathering dust in her garage (only because she already has them). I am giddy with excitement to receive them, so generous of her to offer! And via Twitter, no less. Love the internet sometimes.
My husband is home! He was traveling for the past seven days (I know, I know, it’s not an eternity or anything) and by day seven, I was getting a little burnt out on the whole solo mom gig. Kai is at an all-time high on the energy level these days and Little D was sick and home from school and work can’t go on pause ever, so…we’re happy he’s back!
I have to head up to Ventura later this week for a work event so we decided to spend a few nights and make it a little family mini-break. I am over the moon excited to stay at the Ojai Valley Inn. Have heard fabulous things and I have a feeling a few days in the mountains of Ojai, drinking in all its goodness, is just what this girl needs.
Happy Monday ~
