random happies

Well, it has been a super long time since I've done a random happies post. You can check out the others here, here and here.

With no further ado, it's baaackkk.

Here's what is floating my boat lately.

I used to be a make-up snob. Then I quit my teaching job to stay at home with the kids. For a while I simply didn't wear make- up because I was in sweats and shirts with crusty baby spit up for about 5 years straight.

Well, maybe I'm exaggerating.

Maybe not.

Recently, I read in a magazine that this mascara is a must have. And I must tell you that it most certainly is a must have. I love it!

So the last book I read was a biography about the deadliest climbing year on Everest. Fascinating? Yes. Morbid? A bit. I'm sooo super duper thrilled to start this book tonight. Plus, I got it on sale...woo hoo!!!!

Ever have a friend walk across the school parking lot with a brown bagged bottle of wine? Me neither. Until today. My hilarious friend, Lisa, thought this was all too appropriate for me.

Hmmm...maybe a subliminal hint???

And now that my youngest is 3, I'm seeing the light, friends. Yes, I'm seeing the light. It looks good. Suddenly, I have a new interest in looking fashionable again. Since ray ban aviators have been on the trend list for a bit, I thought I pick them up on a budget price.

ray bans: $189

I bought mine at my most despised store. Any guesses??? It starts with W and ends in T.

I'm cool with it because I look trendy for $5. Catch me trying to pose a la "Mad Housewife"?

Peace out, peeps. The hubs is gone for a work dinner tonight so it is off to prepping cereal for dinner.

Much love,
Katie

Love the cute glasses and for $5 who cares if someone sits on them or steps on them (which always happens to mine). That wine label is hilarious!

The Help...loved it! The aviators looks fab on you. I can't pull them off with my face shape so I'll stick to my big-bug eye shades instead.
