getting lippy

So today I bought some lipstick.
This is a big deal for me, because it's rare that I wear anything on my lips.
Even my Vitamin E lip balm from the Body Shop doesn't get on them too often.
My lips are often chapped and nibbled on...

so I got Revlon's Kiss Me Coral.

Lipstick for me has always been kind of an old lady idea.
Or bad memories from my years of dance (bright reds, blacks, silvers, etc).
I'm hoping this will be a fun slide into the grown up make up phase...

And maybe distract people from my green jawline.
(Yup, still bruised)

snatch fest

Last night was the first Snatch Fest of the new lessons set. We went to Beacon Hill Drive In, where we had sundaes - mmm. Then through Uplands to Starbucks which we took back to my house. Tried to take some photos of the gang... Emily was not cooperating.

Before Jess and Em came to pick us up, Sarah and I went to do some window shopping at the mall. And some really shopping - because I got an Aldo headband, - Sarah got sunnies and sandals.

We are getting ready for summer!

There were some sweet sunnies at Le Chateau, rather Alexander Wang-ish. I love them and want them. Also a safari style romper at Costa Blanca.

Today I went to the dentist.
And then work at 2:30.
It was a very pain filled day.

Now home to shower and then Snatch Fest.

i have yet to master the messy bun...

So work wasn't too bad yesterday, partially because I was on my drugs. Wee! Felt like I was in a whirlpool. Today maybe I will be a mermaid.

Two of my little kids last night said I looked like a frog. Nice.

I will admit, my face is quite green and puffy. But I hope I look more like a colourful Amazon tree frog rather than some British toad.

Anyways, I'm working 9-11:30 today so hopefully that will go well.

Must dash to the condo to try and find my wetsuits!

Em is subbing the rest of my evening shift but I may have to pop back in. Boo.

Enjoy this lovely sunshiney day!

it's nap time

but i'm quickly posting todays outfit...
boots - le chateau
leggings - tna from aritzia
dress - strapless from american eagle
cardi - gap
please excuse my puffy cheeks :)
I have been reading this blog quite a bit lately: This Time Tomorrow @
Krystal is gorgeous, stylish, and quite the photographer.
Always has fantastic outfits and the cutest smile.
Also still loving stalking tumblr for delightful photos.
I really need to get out and take some.
I have been living in pjs and sweatpants for eons
(or else my wetsuit) so have not gotten
around to doing any outfit posts for awhile.
My bad!

Perseus is coming out of his shell. He's a lot more adventurous and has a wee bit of an attitude. I love the little bugger, though. Especially when he cuddles with me...

spring has sprung

Whenever I heard/read the word "sprung" I think of Sir Mixalot's - Baby Got Back. I have no idea why, I just do.

It is absolutely gorgeous out. Yesterday was lovely as well but I was feeling tres crappy.

I do not see a single cloud in the sky so hopefully I will make it outside with the camera!

Yesterday I went to visit the parents (who are in town till today) and as I was feeling quite ill due to the teeth I mainly rode around in the back of the car while they did errands.

Then I had them drop me off at my house so I could have a nap. And nap I did. As did the wee buns. Who are bffs now. **Perseus just came scampering out of the bedroom and stood up on his hindlegs meerkat style looking for his sister**

Jess came over after my nap so we could work on a Jeopardy project for her, and Em and Sarah joined us later. They also brought me a milkshake so that was nice. I need to pay her back - forgot.

The Percocets and Advil are starting to kick in. Thank goodness. It's always so sore when I wake up, probably because I sleep with my mouth open. Aw, baby Dica just came to visit me on the bed. What a lovely girl.

So I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday.

Appt was scheduled for 11:30 and I didn't get into the chair until 12:40. I was in recovery at 1:40 and then Amanda and Josie picked me up and we spent the rest of the day at their house. Watched Tinkerball and some other shows.

It took me over an hour to eat my first pudding. My freezing didn't go out until about 4pm. Amanda was making them dinner and I was SO hungry! But in so much pain.
The percocets haven't been working so I called the dentist office today. Looks like I can up my dosage to two Percocets and 2 super strength Advil 400.

Josie is here today and we've watched Peter Pan and are in the middle of Finding Nemo.
I love this little kid. She's so cute!
