About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

I know I'm not Oprah but....

I know I'm not Oprah but..... here is a few of my Favorite things this last few months:

Favorite relaxing thing: Spa comfort eye pillows

You can get this on Amazon (I purchased mine at a local spa) but "I love it!!" I heat this pillow up in the microwave for about 45-50 seconds then lay on top of my eyes as I relax or try to go to sleep - heaven!!!

My second favorite thing of the summer: If you missed the season finale of "Modern Family" stop what you are doing and go watch this episode!

This last episode is so funny!! Especially from a "mom's point of view" whenever you find yourself harping, being a little obsessive, trying to be perfect, or get your family to be perfect - you just have to watch this - be prepared to laugh!!! Especially if you tried to take a family picture this year on the beach!!!

The third favorite thing of mine: being a "non morning kinda of gal" I just love how a cool hat, and shades can get a mom through the car line for back 2 school in style!!!

My fourth favorite thing is my handy dandy drink:

Yep, that's right I love Happy Hour at Sonic, and my favorite is a "vanilla diet Dr. Pepper"

My fifth favorite thing this summer is the new TV show "Rubicon" on AMC:

Such a good thriller!!!!! It will keep you on your toes, and looking over your shoulder!

My very favorite movie of the summer had to be: "letters to Juliet"

Which I will go into more details "why" on tomorrow's post.

I hope you all enjoyed your summer, and your "back to school" has started off on a good foot!!

  4. Loved reading this. I too love a good pair of sunglasses, especially when I'm too lazy to put on makeup! Can't wear hats--they give me a headache, but I do like a ponytail now and then. My favorite things this summer are all under the age of 4, under 3 ft tall, and unfortunately live in other states!

  7. Love Modern Family. Haven't seen Rubicon or Letters to Julia but they will now be on my to do list.
    I would recommend reading The Help, Benefit's eyebrow pencil and I never did my eyebrows. I am a blonde. I thought they were fine until I stopped at the Benefit counter and the sales person used this on me.
    Loved Bethany Getting Married? and Mad Men and reading your blog. :)

  8. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Modern Family. We laughed out loud every time we watch, even reruns. Can't wait for the new season :)

    We're still out of school for 2 more wks, but I cant totally relate to a good hat/glasses.

  9. Haven't seen the movie yet and I hadn't heard of Rubicon? Sounds like a show I would love!!
    You know how to find me. :)
