Diniwilk Stew

  • If anyone was wondering where the heck I've been, I'm still HERE, just crazy busy. Work has been pretty much nonstop, and the kiddos aren't cutting me a break either. Both girls have been sick at least twice over the last couple of weeks, and have decided that naps and bedtimes are for sissies.

  • Speaking of bedtime...Lucia STILL isn't consistently sleeping through the night. We had a breakthrough a few weeks ago, so she's finally staying in her crib all night long. And by breakthrough I mean her tubby butt burned out the swing's motor so it wasn't an option anymore. She still wants to eat 1-2 times a night, and still sometimes has those nights where she fusses from midnight to 4am. I THINK she only really does that when a new tooth is breaking through though. I finally just put a damn air mattress in her room so I can re-binky her from bed when she's having a bad night. She slept from 8-5:30 last night though, so yay!

  • Justin was out of town this weekend doing his version of meeting internet strangers (his gaming buddies all went to Atlantic City). This morning Adriana was crying because she missed him. When I asked why she was crying, she said "I miss Dada because I love him so very much." So very much! This kid kills me.

  • I took the kids to the zoo solo on Saturday, and it was like a whole new world. Lucy was in the stroller and Adriana actually walked the whole time, without whining or running off or anything. I bought her a little flamingo in the zoo gift shop for being so good, which she promptly named Maringo the flamingo. God, I love this age.

  • I have been buying makeup like gangbusters. Does anyone want to see what I got, or want me to post reviews or anything? I personally love stuff like that, but I didn't know if anyone else cares.

  • Assuming that there are some other makeup nerds out there, does anyone have any You Tube beauty gurus you love? I have pretty much seen every video by laurenbeautyy and diamondsandheels14 (if you have bad skin like me, you HAVE TO watch her stuff, she wears tons of makeup but it doesn't look cakey at all)(sorry for the lack of linkage, I'm posting from work). I need some new people to stalk.

  • And now, to end on the cutest picture in the history of the universe...

Your girls are so adorable!!

Yes, please post the makeup reviews! I'm thinking of doing one soon, too.

Elizabeth said...

Yes, I want to see all the make up and reviews and everything! I find that stuff fascinating.

Lacey said...

Maybe along with makeup reviews you can put a little makeup tutorial in there for makeup dummies like myself? I still use black eyeliner, not majorish, but still. And I'm pretty sure I shouldn't do that since like 1996, but I don't know what I'd do instead. Help!

& yes, most adorbs picture ever!

I slept on a futon mattress by Margaret's crib for MONTHS. Several of them while pregnant and pukey. Super fun.

Oh my gosh, so cute! Lucia looks like a little doll in this picture!
And YES I love makeup it!

Oh I love that picture! I actually just bought more makeup than I had in years. I got the Bare Minerals foundation, plus Ooh la lift eye stuff. Today is only my second day using it. I don't know if I'm doing it right. I don't see much LIFT in my eyes yet, just the bags. And the foundation stuff is just kinda..there. It doesn't look cakey or anything, so that's good. It's hard to even notice I'm wearing any. I never wear much of anything though. Tell us what you got!
