Ramble Much?

Okay-so this post is going to be full of randoms because as we all know Blogger has been down for 2 days a million years! 

I got my second Birchbox in this week and I like it much better than last month's box

This month's box of samples included:
  • Shampoo/Conditioner samples
  • A TinyPrints card and promo code
  • Stila eyeshadow
  • Bvlgari perfume
  • Erno Lazlo firming creme
  • Some smell good soap
I love getting packages in the mail.  It makes me happy :)  And for $10 a month I get to play with makeup and new products without breaking the bank!
"What happened to your face?"
Oh poor Bristol.  She thinks that a new chin will make her feel better.  Why does every teenager in the public eye feel like plastic surgery is the only answer?  I mean there is nothing wrong with having some baby fat or a gobbler on your chin! That's the way God made stick with it!

In other news: I am having major issues with my picky eater.  He does eat some foods, but is extremely picky when it comes to meat and veggies.  Anything remotely solid he spits out and his big phrase right now is "uh oh!"  ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO GET THIS CHILD TO EAT???
We also got Connor's new big boy car seat in this week.  I must say I liked the smaller car seat much better!  It's a pain in the butt to take this thing in and out of the car every day.  We did have fun with the box though ;)  I put Connor in the box and was dragging him in it like a sled.  He LOVED it!  He was just giggling and giggling!!!  Who knew such fun came from a cardboard box?

This past weekend I forgot to mention that we attended a lovely lunch for Terence's Aunt Loyce.  She recently got engaged and we couldn't be more happy for her!  We had a yummy lunch at a tea room/ antique mall and I found so many cute things in there!  There is so much unique stuff in antique malls.

Below: My food, Grandma, nephew Jacob, and the bride to be Aunt Loyce
I'm in love with these two pieces of furniture that were there.  They were painted and distressed a baby blue color.  I don't know what I would put in all those drawers....but I am sure I could find something!

The smaller chest was $275.  Is that a good or bad price?
 Other fun stuff....
In & Out Burger recently opened it's first two locations in Texas this week!  I am so excited about this and can't wait to get my grubby little paws on one again ;)

Here I am enjoying my very 1st In & Out Burger a few years ago in Vegas:

We've been playing outside a lot these days and I captured these pics of Connor last just amazes me how fast he is growing these days!  He looks like such a big boy now!

Hope ya'll have a great weekend!!!

AGH! I liked Bristol's chunky face MUCH better. Now she looks like every Hollywood girl :/ Oh well, if it makes her feel better I guess.

And I am soooo jealous about In N Out, I am dying for one down here in SA!! You better post some pics when you finally get some ;)

Jessica Renee said...

And I don't mean chunky in a mean way at all - I have a chunky face too! LOL She just looked sweeter I guess.

I have a 16 month old girl who seems to have those same picky eating habits. If you get any good suggestions, will you please send them my way. Are you on facebook, so we can connect?

Oh, those furniture pieces are just gorgeous!! That would be fun to try and duplicate. That is sad about Bristol...I wish more girl would set an example that being YOU is perfectly okay. Happy Friday!

I love antique stores too! You never know what you'll find.

I'm so happy for your Aunt Loyce! That's so exciting and she looks radiant in that picture.

I think Bristol look a lot better before. I agree w/ another commenter.. now she looks just like any other Hollywood girl.

I think being a picky eater just goes along with the toddler stage. Both my kids are super picky and I know it's pretty common with other toddlers too. I'm happy as long as my kids are eating something thats not junk food. I wouldn't stress over Connor not eating as balanced of a diet as you'd like.... he'll probably be picky for awhile and go through phases of loving/hating certain foods, eating well, then not so well, etc.

That's so cute of Connor in the box! :)

Didn't mean to write a novel here! Hope you have a great weekend!!

I did feel like a million years didn't it? But at least it's back up now, and hopefully it will be a long time, if ever, something like that happens again!

I passed the In and Out yesterday on my way to Homegoods and it was freaking PACKED! My daughter was the pickiest eater ever until she hit 2 and I switched her to skim milk, the very next day she started eating everything in site and hasn't looked back! I had no idea the whole milk was filling her up so much, now she eats EVERYTHING!

Oh my gosh, those chests of drawers are AMAZING. I want them! No idea what would go in them, but they look amazing.

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Ohh, and why have I not heard about Birchbox? Or not paid attention? I waant it.

Tina said...

That's fun to get makeup every month! And love those drawers!! Awesome! Is that the antique store off I30 & Montgomery St? I've been to that one and love it. They have an awesome chicken salad at the little tearoom!

Hey Becky! Ok, a few things.... 1. I was in ft. worth two weeks ago (my parents live in Azle) and we drove by TCU and it made me think of you!
2. I got my Birchbox for the second month this week too... I love the samples, but you're getting WAY better stuff than me :)
3. love Connor in his little owl shirt.. so cute!
4. My sister lives in LA, so of course in n out is a hot spot when I visit... I CANNOT wait for my next trip to Tx to enjoy a little animal style!
5. Hope you're having a good weekend!
