1. Best Valentine's Day you’ve ever had

I think our first valentine's Day (2009) is definitely the winner. When The Princess and I got to his house he had put hershey kisses all over the floor and had a bunch of goodies and flowers set up on the table for both of us. It was so sweet. Then later that evening he and I had a romantic dinner.

My Valentine

 
This will be my 4th Valentine's Day with my fiance. When we started dating, he was so wonderful that I didn't know what to do with myself. I had never experienced a man treating me right. Now, almost 5 years later, he's still making me smile. I'm so thankful that I have such a wonderful man to be my Valentine today and for the rest of my life.

Valentine's Day cards and treats

The Princess had a hard time deciding what to do for her Valentine's Day cards this year. We were going to do a stampin up craft, but just procrastincated a little too long on ordering supplies. After looking online, we finally we decided to do a 3d lollipop card. One of my preschool students did it last year and we thought it was adorable!

Review: Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation/ Complexion Started Kit


I decided to try Make Up For Ever's HD Invisible Cover Foundation in spite of it's high cost because I heard so many amazing things about it and wanted to see what all of the fuss was about. It is available in wide variety of shades and promises medium to full coverage resulting in the appearance of flawless skin. At Sephora, I was convinced to buy the Complexion Started Kit to get the full benefit of the foundation. I've heard so many great things about this foundations that my hopes were very high and I was sadly very disappointed with my experience.

Car Seat Safety/ Mommy Brain Mixer

Have you all seen that adorable video of the baby girl  wakes up and dances to Gangnam Style? It's the cutest!

Anyway, today as I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed, I saw that someone had posted a photo pointing out how the girls' were not properly buckled in. I'll admit that it was one of the first things I noticed when I watched the video, and I am all for spreading car seat awareness. But I'm just not sure that public shaming is the best way to go about it. So I decided that today, I would like to talk about car seat safety.

If you know me in real life, you most likely know that I have a car seat safety obsession. My daughter is 7 years old and still rides in a 5 point harness seat.  I recommend keeping your child in a 5 point harness as long as possible. My daughter is in the Britax Frontier (pictured to the left). I love it because the height and weight requirements are the highest I have found. If you are in the market for a good convertable seat that will last, I definitely recommend it!
  • Forward Facing: Minimum Weight: 25 Lb., Maximum Weight: 85 Lb., 30 "; Maximum Height: 57 "
  • Booster: Minimum Weight: 40.0 Lb., Maximum Weight: 120.0 Lb., Minimum Height: 42.0 ", Maximum Height: 65.0

Here are some basic car seat safety guidelines to go by. The laws vary from state to state, but I don't think any of them are as safe as these guidelines recommended by the AAP. If you would like more information  than what is provided below click here

Hair color dilemma!

I have an appointment this Thursday to get my hair done and I'm still not completely sure what I want to do with it!!

I have been blondish since last summer. This is definitely the lightest my hair has ever been, but it has been a fun change. I really have been loving it, but the bleach is killing my hair! Which is why I think it's maybe time to say goodbye to the blond.
