Catching Up/WILW

Well, hello! How about a nearly four month blogging hiatus? Why, yes, I think I will!

Anyway, in all seriousness, my break from blogging was not intended. Life has gotten busy and I have gotten lazy about blogging! Emmie is now over 11 months old, Christmas is next week and somehow 2012 is nearly over. I think it goes without saying, but this year has absolutely flown by. I need to get back into blogging regularly. Not only do I miss it, but I know that I'll regret not journaling all the memories we are making.

What better way to get back into it than a WILW post?!

1) L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream

This stuff absolutely rocks. My old makeup routine looked like this: wash face, apply moisturizer, apply concealer, apply Bare Minerals foundation, then apply Bare Minerals Mineral Veil. Well, due to this magic stuff, now, I have completely eliminated the moisturizer, foundation and some days, even the concealer. The BB cream goes on smoothly, makes my skin tone so much more even and even has anti-aging products in it. Love.

2) Homeland

I know I'm a little late on this, but this show is amazing. We just started watching Season 1 a few nights ago and have blazed through 11 episodes already. We are die-hard Dexter fans in this house, but Homeland is giving Dexter a run for the money, big time. 

3) Pura Vida Bracelets

I picked up a couple of these last month on a whim and haven't taken them off since. I got a white one with a circle and a tan one with a cross and I love how they layer well with other bracelets, or just look cute on their own. They're also waterproof and super light, so they are super versatile. And the proceeds go to a great cause!

4) Christmas

Between decorating, shopping, baking, etc., I am in the full on Christmas spirit this year. I've always been Christmas crazy, but I think this year is even more exciting since it will be Emmie's first Christmas. What's more, we leave tomorrow for the Blue Ridge Mountains in GA for a mountain Christmas with my family. I think it's going to be so much fun to have everyone together and to create some new memories!

What are you loving today??
