yikes! long time, no blog!

Follow my blog with bloglovin!

I e-mailed Mom some pics I took today with my phone, and when she replied "You better be posting these on your blog," I realized how long it's been since I posted. Holy crap! Well, abandoned blog no more. :)

Today I went out to grab a few things (dog treats, drain cleaner, hand cream...), and somehow ended up at MAC first. What else is new??? Anyways, I was really proud of myself: I only bought ONE thing! The one thing? A lipglass from the just released All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection called "Glamour For All." Christine from Temptalia posted a review of the lipglasses here.

Possibly my favorite buy of the day though was something totally unexpected:

These rings were from the Sanrio store (which I hadn't visited in MONTHS -- can't believe the willpower that took) and each about $5! A total steal for such cuteness, in my opinion. :) The one in the center is a mood ring.

So... I have lots of big news since the last post I made, but I'll sum it up REALLY quickly. 1) My boyfriend got called to work on a cruise ship in Hawaii and he'll be gone until APRIL. TORTURE. 2) My family visited for Christmas and it was one of the best I've had. I wish I could have them around more often for sure! :) 3) I also got some AMAZING, UNBELIEVABLY thoughtful and generous gifts, including my newly beloveds:

**note: I will be making the payments! I'm not THAT spoiled, okay?


amongst other lovely and well-loved things!

  1. I love this post! Great pix! And I choked at the picture of the car. That wasn't a gift -- you're the one making payments, chica!
