  • I am still ticked that I didn't get Monday off. Instead, I had to dress up because our company president was visiting the office for the day. Ironic? At least they served us free lunch.
  • I finally got my hands on Maybelline Baby Lips and I love it. It's lip balm but it adds a nice color to your lips. I have been trying to buy it for at least a month, but it has been sold out everywhere. I picked up the very last one and I didn't even care what color it was. I was just happy to get one and I'm even happier I ended up liking the color - Cherry Me. (FYI: You can print a $1 off coupon for any Maybelline product at Target, which will make this lip balm $1.99!)
  • Starbucks grande size is a joke. It is so small and they end up adding so much ice anyway, you practically have to order a venti to have more than a few sips of your drink.
  • I know it's early, but I'm already thinking about St. Patrick's Day. I will have a how to video blog up next week on an easy project. It's my first vlog! Much like the last time, I couldn't stop laughing every time Chris tried to film me. He gave up and left me to my own devices so it's not perfect but at least I got it done. Look for it next Monday. Sneak peek below:

  • I have to talk about my new favorite pants. They are from Target and they remind me of the J.Crew Minnie's, but for only $24.99. I put these pants on and they fit like a glove. Perfect in the waist and more importantly, the perfect ankle length and width (skinny!). I bought them because I needed some pants for dress up day at work (see first bullet), but I know that I will wear them all the time! I wore them all day and they didn't stretch or get baggy in all the wrong places so I know they are a winner. They might not look like much online, but they may surprise you. Go check them out - they come in black and blue!
  • We watched The Artist last weekend. I really wish that I could be more cultured and appreciative of a movie like this, but I didn't really like it. Unfortunately, I'm of the age where The Vow knocks my socks off and a beautifully done silent film bores me. Sad. I know Chris is very disappointed in me (seriously, he told me). I can still appreciate the acting and the story it told, but I won't be dying to watch it again. I did love the dog, though!
  • If you follow me on Instagram, then you already saw this picture. On Saturday I woke up and made pancakes for Chris and got a little creative! Fun, huh?

That's all I've got for today!

Your pancakes are so cute! I had planned to do something similar for Ty, but could not find my heart shaped cookie cutter anywhere! Donuts were a good substitute, though. :)

Kristin said...

I have been meaning to try Baby Lips, but I can't find it anywhere either!

Caitlin said...

I love those pants in the royal blue--great price to try a "trend" :) how does sizing work? pretty true to size??

KatiePerk said...

Pretty pancakes! I also have been stalking Baby Lips but can't find it on the east coast either!

Glitterista said...

I am seriously obsessed with the Maybelline Baby Lips, and I live in cropped pants for work!

Dollface said...

I seriously think the same exact thing about the Iced Grande drinks ... so I just upsize and get the Venti, hehe!

A couple things:

1) I would be pissed if I had to work on President's Day too. Ugh. That sucks.

2) Starbucks secret - if you don't like the size of the cup they give you but want the same amount of liquid, ask for a bigger size cup. For example, I'm a hot chocolate and whipped cream freak, so I ask for a small hot chocolate but in a medium sized cup so that I can get more whipped cream. They have NEVER rolled their eyes and not complied, and I've never been charged extra. So if ice is taking up all that space in your drink, ask for the size drink you want, but tell them you want it in a bigger cup to allow for all the ice they dump in. It'll work!

3) What's your handle on Instagram? I'd love to follow you! I'm "tracyclifton". :)
