This is such a beautiful gift, love it. I'm not quite sure I'll go this route because my person is probably more of the type to open it all at once :) also....

 

Dear Santee, I'm afraid your present will be sent out a little later than the 1st because of a few things I'm waiting on, but I promise it will be worth while.

 

To my SS, I wanted to especially thank you today for thinking of me and taking time out of your busy day to do this. Know that whatever you send me will be appreciated  and I can't promise that it won't make me teary eye opening it.

I was thinking how touched that I was by this gift and I have to say that I have never in all my life received a gift that was so well thought out and so just for me. Growing up in an incredibly dysfunctional family the holidays were never something to look forward to. I only recently started enjoying the holidays once I had children of my own and could make it special for them. Nobody has ever taken the time or effort to do something like this for me and it truly is something that I will remember always.

Happy Thanksgiving to the best & most loving group of ladies I know! I feel like the holidays are SO special this year just getting to know some crazy make up addicts like myself. This whole secret Santa thing has helped me really get to know people, their joys, their struggles, their amazing accomplishments. It has made me thankful for all of you. I know I've grown as a person just having all of you touch my life in some way by the words you say & the wonderful things I hear you do for others. Yes, make up talk is full of the best, most caring, brilliant, corky, most amazing people ever! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Yeah!! So glad you liked everything!! After totally stalking your posts, profile, and questionnaires, I knew I wanted to get a cookbook and when I found the wizard of oz one, I knew it was the perfect one. The stila palette was meant to be the big thing but the cookbook ended up being my favorite too!!

I really hope that my girl posts on here when she gets hers. I put a lot into stalking her and tracking down her stuff and fighting with the postal people and companies' electronic devices that keep telling them to cancel my orders cause my address is "invalid" according to the modern world.

I guess I just want to know that she liked it so much, that she'd post her happiness here! lol. Is it wrong to want that? =p

The gifts posted here so far have been awesome- such thoughtful, thoughtful (And generous!) people here!

That's awesome that you live in Williamsburg!  One of my close friends from college is a blacksmith at Colonial Williamsburg.

 

Also, that Halloween photo of you and your fam is INCREDIBLE!

We are military & are stationed at Langley AFB right now, but can't live on base because of the size of our family. We actually live in a little town in VA but we are close to Williamsburg & claim it since most people have heard if it. We took the kids to the Yankee candle factory flagship store today to see Santa & play in the "snow room." It's a fun place. And thank you for the costume compliment. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I make our family theme costumes every year. I love doing it.

I lived in Virginia for three years before we were stationed in New York. We lived in Newport News. I miss the area so much.

I've been a re-enactor at Colonial Williamsburg before!  I know, I'm betraying my super-cool roots here, but I've done Revolutionary War re-enactment with my family since the second grade.  It's actually so much fun to be in costume at places like Williamsburg and Mount Vernon.  People treat you completely differently, like you're all part of a secret society... that dresses funny on weekends.  It's kind of a good thing I don't live near Williamsburg, because I would drink gallons of the sparkling cider from The King's Arms EVERY DAY if I could.

 

Awesome nerd dance break!  yess.gif

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
