Miscellany Monday {10.01.2012}

Going to link up with Carissa from lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday.

Photobucket

ONE:

I got these about a month ago and love them!
People do stare at me when I'm out and about because they are so bright, but I don't care!

They are Nike.

TWO:

I also got a new make-up bag and some new make-up items from E.L.F. Love it all and will be doing a separate blog post soon about my products.

Have you tried any E.L.F. products?

THREE:

I wrapped up editing 2 senior photo shoots over the weekend. What a releif.

FOUR:

Wayne went to a benefit about a month ago for a girl that died. She was super young (only 21 or 22) and her Grandma makes these blankets and gave one to us for Hailey. The whole family is so nice and thoughtful. She has made these blankets for all her grandkids and they all love them so much that they end up bringing them to college even. She said she would only give one to Wayne if he went straight home and wrapped his little girl in it. I thought that was so sweet and it is so perfect for Hailey.

FIVE:

I finally found a good toy holder for the shower/tub. I just didn't like any of the ones I was finding, but finally found this one at Target of all places.

SIX:

My Husband's birthday was at the beginning of August and so he needed to get his license renewed.
Here is his before and after:

So crazy to see how much weight he's lost. Way to go hunny!

SEVEN:

Don't get me wrong, I love my SUV and I've always said I would NEVER get a mini-van or be a mini-van Mom. But I have to say I see the appeal now more than ever and I am questioning if maybe I should have gotten a mini-van instead of my SUV. For instance the 3rd row seating. That is the one thing I think I would love as I cart around my two sisters, Hailey and hopefully at some point at least 1 more kid. I know there are SUV's that have the 3 row seating, but most of them are $1 million and to fill the tank is another $1 million.

EIGHT:

I thought having a kid was supposed to make you a morning person? Wrong. Not in my case. If anything it's made me regress further into NOT being a morning person.

NINE:

Anyone else love this guy and this song? I know he won American Idol, but I didn't watch it. I REALLY like this song. And I guess he's not bad looking either.



TEN:

I have recently changed my Danielson Photography website into a blog now and have been working with a blog designer to re-vamp. So excited. This is the proof she sent me and I will be re-launching it soon.

Proof-01

ELEVEN:

I'm thinking about getting a paper planner again. I don't know 100% why yet. I've been trying to be totally electronic since I got my iPhone last year and I don't really use the calendar at home (mostly because I don't like it). There are a few places that I have seen and looked into...Erin Condren and Paper Coterie.

Any thoughts?

TWELVE:

A couple weeks ago I got this new purse.

Photobucket

I needed a smaller one for concerts and going out and for times I don't feel like lugging around a larger one. Since I got it, I've been trying to downsize and really only use this one. So far so good. It can still be challenging at times to manage all my stuff, but so far it's working out all right. I'm still trying to get used to a smaller bag and only bringing with me the minimal.

THIRTEEN:

I took off my fake nails about a month ago and while I LOVE them when they are on, my nails look like shit crap when they come off. I got a gel manicure which was all fine, but the place I went to only had the OPI gel polish and I have never had good luck with it staying on and not peeling.

IMG_3376

Well, needless to say only a few days later they all peeled off. I plan on going again, but will be going back to my place and getting the CND gel polish.

FOURTEEN:

I got into a mood yesterday and cleaned. Not only did I do my regular cleaning, but I also did the "move all the furniture and clean behind things" cleaning. I get into this winter hibernation mode, where I want to clean and purge. So I did and it felt great. I also got out the halloween decorations. Too early? I don't care

TrickorTreat

FIFTEEN:

Now with the weather getting cooler, I have packed up most of Hailey's too small/summer clothes as well as her sandals. Very bitter-sweet, but that means time for new stuff! Yay! Here are 2 new pairs of shoes.

Gramma Kimmy got these:

And I got these from Target.

I also got her a snow pant/jacket set. It was on sale and too cute. I couldn't pass it up. Love it!!

IMG_3383

Now I just need boots for her and me!

SIXTEEN:

Anybody else love fall tv as much as I do? I'm loving that most of my shows are back...Revenge, New Girl, Parenthood. The list goes on and on! Also, did you see who the next Bachelor is? Sean!

Photobucket

Not sure how I feel about it. I didn't think he had much of a personality, but I felt the same way about Emily and ended up loving her. And I know I will watch it. I always do.

SEVENTEEN:

My cousin asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I"M SO EXCITED!! She was in my wedding cica 2006.

N and L

And now I will be in hers! She's getting married in April 2013. I went and ordered my dress and picked it up last week. The color is lapas...purplish and it is one shoulder.

Forgive me for the horrible photos.

And here is a picture of her German Shepard puppy, Duke.

Ain't he cute?

Wow that was a lot of randomness.
