|It's just nuts|
|Who, me? Make a huge mess?|
I have continued to step it up a bit with my appearance. I got my first Stitch Fix and it was okay. I kept two things and I wear them a lot. I'm waiting for a few more shipments before I decide how I feel about it and I'll show you guys some of the clothes then. I've also been wearing my lipstick, and even received a compliment on it the other day. Yesterday I had another 25% off coupon and some extra bucks so I decided to buy some hair products. I purchased a volumizing mousse, velcro rollers, and bobby pins. Taking it to the NEXT LEVEL. I love buying all this stuff at CVS because if I don't like it, I just return it. I ended up returning 2 mascaras before I found the one I really like, which is Loreal Manga and I really recommend it. Going to CVS is definitely a highlight for me.
Besides Uri traveling like crazy, things are pretty good. Anna is doing well in Kinder and has made some friends, Ethan is walking like a pro and cracking me up all the time, I have plenty of wine and a few pumpkin beers. Oh! And I got my IUD put in and it didn't even hurt! Amazing! Since I'm still nursing Ethan, I haven't even had my period yet and if I keep it up with the IUDs I may never have another period again. That is such amazingly great news. Periods are the worst.
We had a trip planned to Cabo for Thanksgiving and wouldn't you know, the whole place was really banged up by a hurricane. It's a really sad situation and I feel bad for all the people there - so many lost their homes. We canceled our trip because it's just too much destruction and not too safe with the kids. The whole thing made me rethink where we will make future travel plans with the kids. Things got a little dicey down there after the storm and I'm so glad we didn't have to deal with an emergency like that. There was so much looting and uncertainty. We're not going to stop traveling, we're just going to be more thoughtful about where we choose to go. We rescheduled our Thanksgiving trip to Santa Barbara - Uri's cousin is also getting married there that weekend, so it's a win-win. We won't be laying out in the sun by the pool, but hopefully it will be a nice trip anyway. We're staying in the same hotel we stayed in four years ago with Anna. During that trip, it poured almost the whole time so hopefully we'll have better luck with the weather.
Speaking of weather, things have been cooling down a little and leaves are starting to fall. I am so thrilled about the cooler weather! I can't wait until I can wear boots and sweaters all the time again. Yay for Fall. Something about Fall has made me start thinking about buying a house again. I don't know if it's the routine of school or the change of weather or what. Just like last year when we went to some open houses. So I was walking Anna to school and this house in a nice cul de sac we walk through went up for sale. I got home and checked the price and good gracious! Stupid house is over $4 million dollars! I guess it's quite a bit larger (and more gaudy) than it looks from the outside but, geeze. We're still not actively looking but I check things out here and there. Maybe next year.
Well, have a great weekend!
