My Winter Must Haves

I don't know about you all but I am officially over winter.  But since it is still only February I figured I would share my winter must haves

I am obsessed with self tanner.  I love the spray because you get a light coverage and it dries really fast.  I use this 2-3 times a week and it gives me the perfect glow.  Be sure to dry brush and exfoliate before you use it

The magic elixir, I use this on my lips every night along with my feet, cuticles, elbows and everything else that hates the cold.   
I LOVE this stuff.  I have bottles and bottles of half used lotion because I was looking for this perfect combination.  I have insanely dry skin and this has been amazing for me.

Infinity scarfs... I have been rocking this at least 4 times a week.  I think they are the perfect accessory

Tunics, leggins and boots.  I can not get over how much I love this look and how comfortable it is for working at a desk

Found at Bath and Body Works...  again a miracle elixir and it tastes and smells amazing.   I love using it on my super dry nose and cuticles

Any new tools I should know about.  Let a dry skin sister know!

A lovers weekend

Since Nick moved two hours away and we only see each other on weekends we try and make our weekends really special.  For Valentines we went to DC!!  We have gone there 3 or 4 valentines weekends and it never gets old.

Sipping some amazing HO CHO in front of the capitol.  Don't let my hatless/gloveless self fool you into thinking it was a gorgeous day...  omg it was freezing!

Headed up to DC!

The start of brunch... I may or may not have asked for two servings... that ain't no cool whip  that is legit whipped cream... divine

New Orleans style french toast... 

I would probably give my right arm to live in Alexandria... it is so adorable

The Grace was my favorite!

Starting our "chocolate tour" with Diva Hot Chocolate

Next we hit up Co Co Sala 

$8 chocolate covered bacon... it was pretty horrible

Me and Samuel L Jackson... no big deal

A small chocolatier in Georgetown.. really delish cookies

Defrosting after walking around DC

My man is a stud...

Fingers crossed an engagement ring comes in the next few weeks!!!

Awesome and Awkward


In a presentation I was helping with the kids had to draw "Me flags" and I found a don't tread on me from a Kindergartner hahaha!!
I did 100 deadlifts...  I could barely walk the next day but I felt pretty legit

I found these on my doorstep!!  A friend from church dropped them off because I was plagued with a never ending cold

I was speechless when I found these... words can not describe how appalled I am that people wore crap like that in the 70s never the less I still consider them awesome

Why wouldn't you wear a cape to the mall??   What are the rest of us thinking.   Bravo man  BRAVO

Relaxing on a Sunday with an iPad and a plate of cookies ...  

I found this when I came back from NY, he left them hidden all over so I have been finding them all month!

Nick's niece sent him this when Beyonce was singing "if you like it then you should of put a ring on it"  hahaha    AMEN sister

After I had eaten my body weight in bacon wrapped smokies and pizza.... ugh

Headed to a night of carbo loading-  Penne alla vodka had my name written all over it that night

Nick and I found a brick oven pizza place.... AMAZE BALLS... totally worth the hour long wait


Lee Jackson day in Lexington VA... you may or may not find confederate flags all over... especially at your local chinese buffet
If the flags weren't enough, you can always find Confederate soldiers piling on the fried rice

My cat was really confused about snow flakes... she had a major freak out session

Getting caught taking a selfie... there is not covering that one up
So this does not look like a big deal right?... wouldnt you know I got stuck twice and had to leave my car over night and be picked up in a jeep because of this craziness!!!  When will mother nature realize that the south can not handle snow... it's gotta stop
