Five on Friday

One. Makeup

I got a few of the things I asked for on my Christmas wishlist that I'm absolutely loving. One of them is the Naked 3 palette. I don't think I've ever had makeup like this before. I'm a drugstore girl, none of my makeup costs more than $15! To say I was excited to get this palette is an understatement. I love all the colors, most of which I can use on a daily basis and others I can save for a hot night out. ;)

Two. The Affair

Have you heard of this show? It was on Showtime on Sunday nights. The finale aired two weeks ago, for a total of ten episodes, so if you haven't seen it, find it, you'll be hooked and finish it within a few days! I'll watch anything that Pacey (Joshua Jackson) is in, I just love him. I loved how this show is told from two different perspectives, leaving you wondering exactly what happened. 

Three. New Year, No Resolutions

I feel kind of funny not making any resolutions this year. I made a few last year and feel somewhst good about some of the progress I made with them. I wanted to get more organized, eat better, exercise, yada yada. This year I'm going to be completely realistic..I'm going to have another person to care for! I don't see myself making any kind of goals except for keeping my head above water and making sure we're all fed and clothed. Hopefully I can achieve that!

Four. Date Nights = Good for the Soul

While we were back home we managed to have a night away. The entire night. We haven't done that since Miss A was five months old. We went out to dinner to one of my favorite places in Miami- Lincoln Road, and people watched, strolled through shops, and had a giant chocolate chip sundae for dessert. Afterwards we stayed at the beach apartment my in-laws co-own and listened to the sound of the waves. I was SO relaxed, a mini vacation is just what we needed. 

Five. Baby #2

I'm 28 weeks, feeling baby boy move all the time, and hoping to hold on to my energy before it slips away as I get further into the third trimester. We're slowly setting up little man's room- we've got the dresser, wall art, and a lamp purchased so far. I can't wait to get it all together! Miss A has been so sweet and loving with my belly, giving kisses and saying "hi baby" all the time. I think she's really starting to get it!

Happy New Year friends, as always I must thank you for reading and taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you! May you have a wonderful, happy, healthy new year!
