All sorts of unrelated stuff

Today things are scattered all over the place. I've got some pics from here, from there, from everywhere! And since a picture is worth a thousand words, lets get to it.

My Birchbox! A few people have asked about my Birchbox. This is what it looks like when it comes in the mail. More below. By the way...if you want to check it out and get on the waiting list (crazy that there is a waiting list huh!) go here

This month's theme was getting ready for the fall season. I got a cute little makeup/accessory bag, the "latest" color that looks more like black to me, my fav type of hair tie, some Go beauty facial cleanser and foundation, some sort of energizing oil, some Twirl perfume and a mini mag full of the latest trends. Its all sample size for the most part but awesome all the same. Its my little treat to myelf.

The boys and I crashed the parents' block party yesterday. I feel like I'm part of the block as I know most the people who live there and my kids are friends with most of the that makes it okay right? :) There were yummy burgers and hot dogs, all sorts of potato dishes, pasta salad, chips and sooooooo many desserts to get fat from! Absolutely delish and a great way to spend the evening!

My quest to eat healthy tonight...Chicken Stir Fry. For anyone who knows me really well, I am not a veggie fan. It takes ALOT to get me to eat veggies but I'm trying to do better and the boys need to start learning how to eat healthy too so we are. They hate me for it but will love me when they are older (their wives probably will too hopefully). It was pretty good. and more filling than I expected. Not too shabby.


  1. I cancelled my Birchbox a couple of months ago. I like the New Beauty test tube better but haven't brought myself to sign up for it yet. I have enjoyed the Julep boxes though. I'm unsure if I'm going to pass this month or not

    1. I will have to look into those. I've heard of the Beauty Tube before and think its a pretty interesting concept. Thanks! :)
