Beauty Box 5


Each month I anticipate the arrival of my beauty box from the lovely people at Beauty Box 5 however with the hustle and bustle of these last few months I have seriously fallen behind on my reviews. In case you haven't heard of Beauty Box 5 let me fill you in on their awesomeness. They are an affordable monthly beauty and makeup subscription box that will only cost you $8.25 a month with an annual subscription. Is that not cool or what? Although I have been the world's worst blogger lately I just wanted to take a second to show you the variety of products you could expect to get in your monthly boxes if you decided to join this subscription.

Bridal Shower Weekend




It's already my bridal shower weekend and to say that I am excited would be an understatement. We have been counting down the days for so long that it just seems so surreal. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing group of ladies in my life who are all coming together to celebrate such a special day in my honor. I also get to attend my good friend's bridal shower while I'm there as well, so it'll be nothing short of a good time with great company.

Hope that your weekend is just as blessed :)

Five Things



1 || It has been in the 70's all week to which I reciprocated by working on my tan. The closer it gets to our wedding date the whiter I realize I really am and that just won't work for this girl. On that note, if you've ever gotten an airbrush tan how did that workout for you? Seriously contemplating getting one!

2 || Father in law update: He is doing really well especially after just having his first chemo treatment. He has been fairly active and for the most part feeling good aside from the occasional headache. I just wanted to thank you all for the thoughtful comments and prayers that you've been sending his way. They are so appreciated and are certainly being heard, so thank you.

3 || Our wedding planning is still in full swing and I can say with a smile on my face that everything is coming along perfectly. It's funny that just 19 months ago we were getting engaged and now were just a few months shy of our big day!  How is it that that my first bridal shower is within a week away? Time flies when you're having fun obviously!

4 || Spurs fan or not, this weekend we'll be watching the game from a luxury suite. Okay, I may be a Spurs fan, but I am way more excited about the latter half of that sentence. It just so happens that Eric's Aunt won 16 tickets for the suite so we will be spending the day with his family as well. Go Spurs! 

5 || I am never very excited about weekends because I am usually working, but this girl has major plans which involves a small road trip and celebrating a special lady's birthday. Happy early birthday to my sister in law, Amber :)
