Table Topics and Pink
This is a little random for today.
One of my loyal readers (ha,ha, my cute NY sister) sent me a gift that she thought would help my project. It has been awesome! I can't believe what stimulating and enlightening conversations we are now having at dinner. Each card has a question-- they are called "Table Topics." The questions are simple, but somebody did their homework because they work! One night I was really laughing about how heated (in a good way) the conversation was about what they like to do at recess. And practical for eating because the cards are protected from spaghetti fingers by a pretty clear box.
Speaking of acts of service, I've done my school shopping the last two years about a month after school and gotten some killer deals. Like some cute cotton shirts at GAP for $3 and $5. I always struggle finding P.E. shoes for my girls that are still feminine and cute, until I found these at a discount retailer for a great price.
My one well filler for last month, a splurge tube of NARS lipstick I read about on this cute girl's blog. I haven't bought lipstick for 3 years. So it's been fun and I even got a compliment today! This tube was MIA for a few days, until I found what looked like some shady marks on the walls and carpet in a few places. Luckily the lipstick did eventually turn up and wasn't as much worse for the wear as I thought it would be. :) And it came out of everything but the carpet.
The lipstick color is Roman Holiday. I love it! Just a touch of pink that feels updated without being crazy.
Happy weekend! Have any fall weekend plans? For us: soccer, a wedding, and some religion.
