I think someone said pie. Did someone say pie? I could really go for some Dutch Apple right now...

 

@@DonnaD That  is a super cute bag! I am envious of your talent. I have no crafting talent whatsoever, although both my mom and my sister quilt, crochet and knit. My artistic abilities are wholly digital.

 

@@SaraP Are your kids in year-round? Several of the schools in our district just went year-round, including my youngest's former elementary. I don't know if I am relieved or disappointed that they aren't going back quite yet!

No we just start early and end early (Late May). It has to do with our state testing, they have to provide a state test a certain number of days after school starts. That put testing after Christmas break and because the numbers are all important (eye roll) they moved the start date up to move the testing prior to the break. It stinks because it's so hot here in Aug!

^^^ Ahh, that makes sense! My boys' school is pretty traditional - late August start, early June end. My mom always complains about it, how they have to start before Labor Day, and then just get another vacation. :laughno:  When I was in primary/secondary my school started after Labor Day, and she's forever thought that was the best thing since sliced bread!

 

But in those days there weren't all these crazy standardized tests, so no schedules to force-work around. Those good ol' days... (I sound like a geezer!)

Just signing in with my mint chocolate chip (actually the better kind with the salted dark chocolate and mint fudge cups).

Ummm...brand please.  That sounds fabulous!

 

ETA:  I should have kept reading.  You answered that already.  Thanks!

Whoo-hoo! Missed last night because I started reading Ilona Andrews latest Cutting Edge book. I love this series I'm not a re-reader but I do re-read this one routinely.

Oops, missed the official mask party but I always do a mask as part of my Friday night ritual! :) 

 

So happy this thread is starting! :) :)

Oh no! That does not sound good at all!

At first it was all fine and dandy, about 5 minutes in my face started tingling by minute 8 I thought my face had literally caught on fire! So I took it off as fast as I could and my entire face was hot pink and the burning was still there so I put my entire face in the sink covered in water and that didn't even help. You should have seen me, it was quite the sight!

 

Oh yeah, I should probably add that it was the Freeman Rose mask.

It's been such a long frustrating week. I fully intend to spend my day watching Supernatural (full series rewatch, prepping for the new season) and doing a face mask (Michael Todd Pumpkin!) and probably reading (Mindy Kaling's book!)  I should do some cleaning....but that's crazy talk.

I had to work out of my normal area 2 days ago and stopped in a Asian grocery that had a beauty store inside  :w00t:  I purchased 10 Korean face masks, so I'm ready too :smilehappyyes:

Jealous! Our Asian market here has pretty much zero beauty products. It made me really sad, because I was so excited to go. So eBay and RoseRoseShop it is for me.

Is it bad that this comment makes me want to watch the movie "Cutting Edge"? Loved that movie. Toe pick!

I've heard multiple people say this about that mask! Sad, because I wanted to try it, but I would like to keep my facial skin. :(

I have enough problems keeping my skin with the Michael Todd pumpkin mask!  Definitely staying away from the rose mask!

 

(although that pic.... hey girl heeeeeeeeyyyyyyy..... ;) )

Cutting Edge was one of my favorite movies back in the day! I loved me some DB Sweeney! He hasn't aged as well as I would have liked, but then again neither have I, lol.

I am spending the day organizing my newly aquired scarves--I bought a zillion during Forever 21's clearance sale--with the extra 50% off and a discount code they sent me for not having spent $ there in a while, they were $1-$2 each...and shipping was free at $50, so you can guess I got a little carried away! Oh well, they are a lot cheaper than my usual statement necklaces and also serve to turn the most basic outfit into something a bit special.

 

I just popped in a DVD of Stargate SG1--such a silly series, but I got a zillion DVDs of it for $5 on EBay, so my non cable supplied house appreciates them greatly!

This week was brutal. Today is all about relaxing! :) 

Spent the morning in bed with the puppy watching Dogs 101. Boyfriend made me bacon & cinnamon rolls (with sprinkles!). Finally got up & took a super long shower. Face mask. Hair mask. Fixed my eyebrows. Painted my nails. 

Now Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is on, so I'm watching that & working on some long overdue swatches & reviews for the blog. 

 

The only reason I MIGHT leave the house today is to get something for dinner, but takeout sounds more appealing!

Ugh. Brutal weeks are the worst! My week was also brutal! I relaxed a bit last night, I have a little bit of homework I need to do today and I'm going to a White Sox game tonight!

 

I meant to get out of bed and go running, but then it became noon magically, and I didn't go running :( Maybe I'll just order Jimmy John's and start my running tomorrow. Tomorrow was going to be the day anyways.

 

But hooray for relaxation! I have a ton of things going on this weekend but everything is fun :)

I *was* going to go shopping in search of sandals and a top to wear with a skirt I have right now from Gwynnie Bee to wear to a wedding next weekend, and then I decided to go into the Room of Doom and see if I could find these awesome Merrill sandals I picked up a few years ago (success!), and I discovered a *lot* of adorable summery stuff I put in there a few years ago and forgot about, including a dress I could wear to the wedding!  Except I'm too pasty to expose my arms and legs in August, and the skirt I have decided on is so long I have to roll it up in order to not walk on it, so I can even NOT SHAVE MY LEGS and wear it.  And I have a top that goes with it, too, so now I just need a pedicure because I am *not* willing to have un-pedi'd toes exposed to the world.  And I found a second dress I could wear to a dressier-than-jeans function in autumn or winter, if hell should happen to freeze over and I needed such a garment.

 

OMG, YOU GUYS!  The mail just came and went (no Summerswap package, in case my buddy was wondering, but it's possible it will come by with another postal carrier), and I received my refund from the Birchbox/Women's Health collaboration AND MY SQUAREHUE BEVERLY HILLS COLLECTION!  Let's find some scissors and see what's in this box...

Get me Jimmy Johns and I'll be your BFF, for life! I used to live across the street from JJ...now I am a 45 minute drive from the nearest one. I could just cry. :'(

That's the saddest thing ever!! I would die if I didn't have a JJ within delivery distance of me at all times!

I work in a building without a Jimmy Johns but with a Potbelly in the lobby.  There's a JJ a few blocks away, but if I'm grabbing a sandwich, it's because I don't have time to venture outside of the building for lunch, so I've developed quite a fondness for Potbelly! 

 

Yesterday, a coworker and I went to Sephora and Macy's for foundation samples so I can find something new that I can buy in a physical store here (Pretty & Cute is discontinuing Missha!  *sob*), and we stopped in a cafe I had never been in before to grab sandwiches to take back to our desks:  Cafe Portlandia (note:  this is the real Portlandia:  They have fries made from FRESH POTATOES WITH THE SKINS ON.  Oh, yes.  And it's in the corner of the municipal services building, so it's not super busy, but it's really open and airy.  I think we're going to be going there for lunch a lot now when we just need some peace and quiet.  None of the other places we usually go for lunch are very calm, but this place was just magically soothing.

 

Um.  Perhaps I should have some breakfast.  I've already been up for three hours and have only had coffee!
