Five Favorites...

Joining Grace this week for...

1.  Chewbeads.

My mother-in-law just sent these to me for John Paul.  He loves them, and I love that I'm not worried about him choking down one of my necklaces.  Thanks!

2.  This read.

While I absolutely adore my husband, and believe we are perfect together, this article hits the nail on the head.  Regardless of who we marry, on the days when we really have to choose to love, it isn't a sign that we married the wrong person.  Rather, it's an opportunity to experience really what it means to selflessly live our vows.

3.  Revlon ColorStay Suede Lipstick in Silhouette.

I'm trying to venture from my go-to nude/brown shades.  I hate orangey lipstick, and I'm not brave enough for red.  Okay, I've tried it, and then when I answer the door for the UPS man remembering my lips are bright red, I feel like a big dork (although I like the burgundy colors coming this fall!) I tried this.  Not much color, but I like it. And, it stays on.

4.  Mac Lipstick in Media

Here's the burgundy I got for fall (that I'll probably wear twice and return to my typical no lipstick routine).

5.  The Bongo Room

I will be here, eating these (White Chocolate Pretzel Pancakes),with this girl,  in a few short days.  Chicago, here I come!

  1. I love that Mac shade! I need to be a little more daring and try out something like that, instead of my safe/boring Burt's Bees tinted lip gloss.

  2. SO jealous. Seriously. SO jealous. Of you being in Chicago. But mostly of you seeing Rozann. Or eating the pancakes. It's really a close call there for me. :) You girls have SO much fun!


  3. Chicago is my favorite vacation spot (it helps to have relatives there too!). The museums! The Pier! The fireworks! The restaurants! SO wonderful for a country girl's vacation. But I never heard of white chocolate pretzel pancakes before...methinks there's a story behind those.
