It's been .... awhile!

So, it's been a bit since I last posted on here.  Today I had so many things going on in my head I just had to let it out somewhere!!!!  Sometimes I think Facebook is just NOT the place for me to bitch.. so.. I'll do it here!  I do have exciting news since the last time I blogged.  I'm pregnant!!!  Currently 14 weeks and super excited to have moved into the second trimester!  The first few weeks were a whirlwind.  We found out right before New Years and were just so excited!  I remember at the New Years Party we went to I asked if I could have a non-alcoholic margarita and immediately regretted it because that was definitely not the slyest move in my book.  Kevin told his friends that were at the party and all I had to do was look across the room at his giddy guilty face to KNOW he told them.  I couldn't be too mad though because we really were just oh so excited!  After the excitement started to settle and reality started kicking in that we're having a baby and need to get some stuff finished up at home is right around when the nausea started creeping in.  Morning sickness/all day sickness sure is interesting.  I always used to say I'd never had morning sickness when I got pregnant because I already dealt with it every morning.  Usually my blood sugar is super low in the morning and I feel pretty crappy, but I was definitely wrong.  Pregnancy morning sickness is a whole different icky feeling.  I'm happy to report moving into week 14 now most of it is starting to fade away and with the help of my anti nausea meds my appetite is BACK with a vengeance!    I think about mid January we had my friend Kelly take some awesome pictures of us to eventually put on Facebook. I really wanted to wait until the 12 week mark.  I had a pregnancy loss last fall super early and have sort of been on edge to make sure everything is going right and a bit timid to let too many know before we were in the clear. 

Yesterday it snowed like crazy in the evening!  We went from absolutely nothing to at least 3-4 inches in just hours!!  Kevin's classes were cancelled and we were super glad because just his drive home from work was awful and his car looked dreadful by the time it made it into the garage!  He said it was an awful drive!  Kahlua on the other hand was soooooooooooooooo excited!  She LOVES snow and was out eating it at any and all opportunities!  Little Jewels isn't as crazy about the snow.  She's 8 and I think she's outgrown any fun that can come from playing in the snow.  She ate a little after seeing Kahlua chow down, but sadly it all came back up after she got in the house.  Poor old girl, her tummy just doesn't like it! 
So, the rant I was thinking about today..  Ok, so.. I have a confession.  I don't wear makeup.  Like... ever.. for any reason.  I used to, but I just don't anymore.  I think it makes my face feel heavy, it smells, gives me a headache, makes my face feel greasy, and gross.  In the past I've sold Arbonne, AND Mary Kay and I don't like any of it.  I bought myself Bare Minerals to wear for my wedding because everyone kept saying "oh you'll love it.. just try it".. and I hate to say it, but I was not sold.  Don't like it.  Nothing special or awesome about it.  Not impressed.  I'm most happy to wear some lip gloss and go.  My husband doesn't even like me in makeup.  Makes life easy!  :)  Also, I don't wash my face.  You know like on a daily basis.  Don't do it and am more than happy with my skin.  I think it's all a ploy to suck up your money.  I remember when I sold Arbonne there was an entire 6 step process of applying their serum and lotions.  It was a load of crock looking back.  There is no gold in the bottles that you are applying, it's not better than anything you could buy at a grocery store.  It's not even like it's organic.  Just a money pit.  I will admit I use Burts Bees face cleanser in the shower occasionally, but NOT everyday.  I think sometimes people think I'm crazy.  When I tell someone I don't wear makeup I get odd looks like "what.. how can you NOT" and I want to yell back "WHY should I HAVE to?"
I don't know if I've posted it on here, but I have also opened an Etsy shop!!!!!  I've been making cutesy Owls, shell picture frames, burp cloths, and soon I will add some Mood Monsters for your desk at work!!!  Can't wait!!!  Here are some pics!!!

Woohooo!!!  Well I'm off for now!  I've also got a purple mood monster to finish for someone so maybe you'll see it on here or my Etsy shop soon!!!
