Stepping on Dinosaurs



Today I feel like if I have Mumps...my throat hurts and it feels really swollen, like I have a lump in it...lovely. But I still did my Leslie Samson Cardio burning exercise! I don't feel so hot right now, so I'm not really caring that I keep stepping on Dinosaurs- cause they multiply here- nor that the big lego blocks are the worst thing to give to your kids when their Mom has OCD...but he loves it so all over they stay.


Bad timing to get sick, my schedule is crazy for the next 6 weeks but we are going to NYC this weekend. My lovely Sister in law, is due in September so we are having a small baby shower at the park. Should be lovely but not fancy, she is after all one of the simplest woman I've ever met in my life. She doesn't care for fashion, or makeup, or bags or heels. It's the strangest thing, but she is seriously a great SIL and a great friend.


Then I'll be at the Airport on Sunday picking up the Mom-ster and my Daddy-o, I can't wait to see them {yes, you read correct, and I'm not even being sarcastic}, should be fun to have an excuse to go out more, visit Georgetown cupcakes {which I will only have 1/2 of one} and shopping, apparently the Mom-ster comes with a plan of attacking all the store...my poor, poor Dad :)


On to some other stuff...I'm trying my hardest the work the coupon thing, sometimes I dont get it, some days I score. I actually signed up thru FB and got 2 coupons of $2.99 for Herbal Essences and Aussie and this is what I got:




I pay $0.40 total because the gal at WM combined the 2 coupons, score! I haven't use HE in ages but is free so I will give it a go (this one is for Long hair) and the Aussie I heard great things about it, even though I don't need that much conditioner but it smells SOOOOOOO good I had to get it.


And here is the stuff I got in the mail this week:


First I won this cereal package from the lovely Molly of Stilettos & Diapers, which includes this little contraption in which you can carry a bowl, a container for the milk and even the spoon!







This has been perfect for a snack for the little guy, and I got to try the Cinnamon burst which I LOVED.
I also order these trousers Jeans from QVC, they where on sale, and 3 payments...yeah, that works for me. They are still on sale but I actually got them for a few dollars less last week. I'll post a pic of me wearing them this weekend.




Oh, and next week I should have my Birchbox box and new nail polishes from Zoya (don't worry, got them on sale buy one get two, which is the only way I purchase them. If you are interested in their deals make sure to open a free account with them, they will send you an email when the next promo becomes available. Here are the colors I choose:



Zoya Jem (Jem, the music’s contagious, Outrageous! Jem is my name, no one else is the same, Jem is my name, JEM!- totally 80's kid)


Zoya Envy

Zoya Cynthia

and finally Zoya Angelina, and yes I was going for a dark period on nail polishes :)
I hope you guys are being healthy, staying beautiful and specially, sane!

Over & out

***pics of nails are totally NOT mine, I saved them from Google images when I was deciding on the colors and now have no clue where they are from***

same here Ash, I get some coupons but then go to the store and find another brand way cheaper without coupons. I only try with the things I know we are really going to need/use.
