Disney Social Media Moms Invite

O....M....Disney!!!  Look what was in my inbox last night........

You're Invited...
To the Most Magical Social Media Conference of the Year!
The 2014 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration!


I am beyond excited and dissapointed all at the same time.  To even be invited is a HUGE honor.  But, we're in Florida and airfare out to California is just way too high right now.  So, we can't go.  I was up all night last night trying to figure out if there was any way that we could swing it and I keep coming up with nothing.  SO BUMMED!!  

But, I'm going to start saving right NOW in hopes that I get invited next year.  Because there's no way I'm passing it up twice!

To everyone who is able to attend.....take lots of pictures and I can't wait to hear all about it.  To those who were invited but can't make it....I feel your pain.  Let's encourage each other to save up for next year.  And for those who didn't get an invite....keep your fingers crossed.  Maybe they'll keep sending out invites as the rest of us sadly decline. 

Have a Magical Day!!

Lancôme DreamTone review

SheSpeaks recently offered me the opportunity to review Lancôme DreamTone. Of course I jumped on the chance. Who doesn't like to try new products that have already received great feedback?  So, I chose the fair/light formula and got started.  I've been using it twice a day for about 4 weeks now. Now, I don't think my skin tone was too bad before I started, but it's definitely got more of a glow now.  I also have a small dark spot on my cheek that popped up not to long ago, so I was excited to try it out on it and see the results.  Here are my #bareselfie 's
Before:

After:

My dark spot isn't completely gone, but I feel that it's lighter. I think I'll continue using the rest of the bottle and see what happens!



Disclaimer: I was given a bottle of Lancôme DreamTone in exchange for this review.  I did not receive any monetary compensation and the views in this post are my own.

Day 2

Tonight we rented a movie and snuggled on the couch. It was a nice end to a rainy day.

Day 1

Today I'm thankful for good friends. 
It's been a crazy past few months and to be able to go out to dinner with friends and just have a good time is a wonderful escape.

I just vacuumed my oven

Yep, you read that right.  I just vacuumed my oven.

Over the many years of having to clean in, around and under my oven, I've never thought to take the vacuum to it.  I've always done it the hard way.  Take a wet rag and wipe out the inside, taking the time to scoop up all of the burnt tidbits that have fallen to the bottom.  Then I pull out the drawer underneath, remove all of the pans that are stored in it, and then dump it into th trash can and wipe it down.  Then I would stick my hand into the dark opening where that drawer goes and wipe out whatever happens to be lurking under there.  Well not today!!

Today I had the vacuum out with the attachment on it going around all of the baseboards in the kitchen and thought hmmmm.....I bet that would work.  So I rolled it on over to the oven and gave it a try.  And it worked really well.  It sucked up all of those tidbits inside, in the drawer and even in that scary opening underneath.  And I didn't have to stick my hand in anything gross!  So, yes, this will definitely be my new method of cleaning the oven from now on.  Just makes me wonder why it took me so long to figure out in the first place!

should have stayed in bed...

So who else has had "one of those days" today?

Had a feeling this morning that I shouldn't leave the house.  Then realized I really shouldn't have. 

Kids spilled milk and apple juice all over the kitchen this morning, we were late for story time at the library, someone backed into my truck while waiting in line at the drive thru, there were no kids at the park for my son to play with by the time we got there, missed our field trip because we had to take the truck to get checked, spent way too much for way too little at the grocery store, and got popped in the face with hot oil while getting the meatballs ready for dinner. 

AND it's not even 5:00 yet.  *sigh*
