Ahhhhh Friday! I told my next door neighbor teacher, Bill, that it was starting to feel like Groundhog Day and I am so ready for winter break! It’s been both a long semester and a quick semester. Do you feel that way, too? Or are you normal and you don’t measure your life by semesters?
I have not replaced my lipsticks since probably 2019 with the exception of a gloss here and there. You guys – it’s almost 2023 so that would make it four years! I could not find a classic red in my stash (that seriously needs to be tossed) that I wanted to wear this month. I know I love the Maybelline Superstay Ink Crayon. Seriously, it’s a great product! So, I went to Walgreen’s after school on Monday and bought “Own Your Empire”.
But, I knew I needed a better lipliner so I bought and love Milani in the color Spice. I think you really need a lipliner when you wear a red so that it doesn’t run outside the lipline.
I love NYX products and I also picked up this clear gloss that is supposed to plump called Filler Instinct. Sometimes I will go matte and sometimes I will go glossy.
I have looked too many times in Target and Kroger over the last month for Winter Mint Chocolate Premier Protein with no luck so I finally just ordered it off of Target.com – Same with Mrs. Meyer’s peppermint handsoap and kitchen cleaner spray. I can’t wait to get these items! They scream December to me!
Remember how I complained about the cocktail the “Leafblower” I had last Friday and my “neighbor” who blows leaves for hours in every season? Look what popped up in my Facebook memory. Tom was double fisting with two leafblowers. Why do we have two? Maybe Tom is the problem? I sent him this photo and he was like, “why do you have that?”
Tom and I hadn’t had a burrito bowl in a few weeks so that was our Tuesday dinner. So good!
Erica made the lasagna cups for one lunch this week.
I tried a new machine at the gym this week and I think I like it.
We went to our friends’ house last Saturday and I love these little clay faces Beth hung in her hall bath.
My friend Victoria is celebrating her birthday this week so we had a happy hour at Cultured and it was so cozy and wonderful.
For the board we ordered, you pick three cheeses and two meats and they create the rest.
They also have amazing cocktails that are reasonably priced.
I gave Victoria the dough bowl Frasier fir candle and rechargeable lighter and she sent this photo of it when she got home!
So, I told you we are doing demonstration speeches in Spanish 3.. .This guy works at a local pie shop that also has cookies and he demonstrated this Christmas tree cookie. He also gave each student a plain cookie and their own piping bag. They had so much fun participating. You’d be surprised how much high school kids are like elementary kids, I think!
I am so glad my school is very loose about food rules. We can have homemade foods brought in. We are allowed to accept food gifts. It’s very nice and creates a nice atmosphere, I think. I am also doing a cookie exchange with Spanish Club. I think kids need stuff like this. Do you have memories of food in high school? My journalism teacher (my favorite teacher!) bought us donuts frequently.
So, what were your favorites this week? I hope you had many. Please think of me as I try to figure out my gifts this weekend! I haven’t bought anything except a stocking stuffer!
