Better Late Than Never

I'm back to the real world just in time for the weekend! Little Red has been fever free for 36 hours and is now having fun at school wearing his Superman pj shirt & cape. Don't judge me! We made a deal and he is wearing jeans.

Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes and love! As my birthday week wraps up, I am so excited to share with you some of my favorite things. It's not like I've built it up or anything... One of my most favorite things is hearing product recommendations from others and I am (usually) open to trying them out.

Hope you enjoy mine! Drum roll, please...

Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper- Even Mr. Sass is digging this tasty drink and he hates ALL things diet.

L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara- This stuff rocks. A cute chick recommended it to me in the make-up aisle at Wally World and she was right on. It doesn't run and it comes off in clumps when you wash your face. No more burning eyes, plus my lashes are long and loverly.

Bath & Body Works Wallflowers in Coconut Lime Verbena & Honeysuckle- These thing are AWE-SOME! I especially love having one in my laundry room. Every time I open the door I get a whiff of wonderfulness. I don't even notice the stench of manly funk. Anymore.

Avon Glazeware Lip Gloss- I'm digging Raisin Glaze & Iced Pink right now. Wear them separately or together.

Juicy Couture Perfume (as always)- This is my signature scent. I just don't see it changing any time soon.

Little Debbie’s 100 Calorie Marshmallow Treats- YUM-O! They are good and I feel like I'm eating something I shouldn't. Just be sure you only eat one, otherwise the whole hundred calorie thing doesn't really apply. They even come in cutesy Easter colors.

These Boots from Target- I feel like I wear them every day. They go with dresses, skirts, pants, jeans, etc. It's a good thing flip-flop season is on the horizon or my work peeps might just think I'm going ca-razy. I rarely wear the same shoes twice in one week. That was before I fell in love with these boots. Note-my new Volatile wedges are quickly catching up!

Nike Tempo Running Shorts- Perfect for working out or lounging around. I have 4 pair. Seriously. They have them at Ross (one of my favorite stores) for about $10 right now. That is almost half price. Shut the front door. I seem to be more likely to work out if I have cute clothes to do it in. And thanks to my dear lil sis, Becca. Now I have 5 pairs and I couldn't be happier!

Jergens Natural Glow Lotion- Gradual color that moisturizes at the same time. Way better than orangey self tanner and perfect for just a touch of color.

Everything Allison at Accents by Alli does- I love her tags, letters, frames, etc. She has FINALLY opened an Etsy shop. You must check her out. Look at the sassy tag she made me. It is almost more cuteness than I can handle.

Fox River Moisture Wick Socks- Best. Socks. Ever. I have never put a lot of thought into the socks I wear until recently. I have realized that the socks are ALMOST as important as the shoes. I said almost. Plus, I love everything Fox River stands for from supporting breast cancer to supplying socks for our overseas troops. BTW, Mr. Sass gave me some Nike moisture wick socks for my bday. I’ll let you know how they stack up. Hot Tamales Candy- I love these little yummies! I attribute part of my weight loss to them since they are actually a low(er) calorie candy. They are perfect for snacking on between meals.

GO MOM! Products- Perfect for staying on top of life and work. I don’t know what I’d do without them.

I drink diet DP everyday but don't think I've seen the cherry. Definitely need to find some!

I have you on my google reader already! Great stuff!!

Coco said...

I have 10 pairs of the tempo running shorts and wear them

Did you know that they are what the sorority girls at UT, Tech, A&M are wearing to class these days? My baby sitter thinks I am super hip because I own so many pairs!
I was just being comfy on my runs!

And the DP? Very tasty. I agree.
