My Mink Lashes!

IMG_1042 IMG_1046 IMG_1047 IMG_1048

So far I love them! They are so incredibly soft I can barely feel them. All the synthetic lashes felt like plastic. They were crunchy and stiff. The synthetic lashes were also a lot heavier. I feel great wearing these. Each lash has 4-5 mink hairs attached to them to get this effect. Every morning I have to brush through them but they are great. These lashes are a week old and still going great. I truly love them and I can see myself becoming an addict. After having several brands of synthetic lashes applied I can really tell a difference.

Here is a picture of one of my lashes. You can see that there are several mink lashes attached to my ONE lash.

Ready for SPRING!

Sunday we went to try on pageant gowns which was fun. I think I found one, but I’m a little sticker shocked by the prices. I felt the most comfortable in a black one. It wasn’t as pageanty but it was ‘me’. Plus I can see myself wearing it many times if I do buy it. After, we went to the Denver Home and Garden show downtown. It was such a tease! You walk in and there are fresh flowers and trees planted in all these beautiful indoor lanscaped areas. You could SMELL spring. It seems like February is the month when I really start missing Spring. BUT to make our season ski passes cost effective we have to ski at least 7 days a season…………….so we still need a little more winter. We are going skiing this weekend too. Last year we got our last snow storm in MAY, so our winter could last quite a bit longer. But I have to admit, after that show I am misssssssing warm weather and blossoming plants. SOON!

Baby Got A Brobee Doll!

At the Portland airport Audrey found a doll dressed just like her at one of the stores! She instantly fell in love. Brobee is her favortie character from Yo Gabba Gabba. She is in love with that show. Of course daddy caved and bought it for her. We had seen this doll in another store before and he didn’t want to buy it then! I guess it was something we HAD to buy this time because it was too cute with her dressed up as Brobee. At the register she wouldn’t let anyone touch him because she was scared they would take him away. Finally we just brought a second Brobee up to scan since she made it clear we couldn’t touch hers. She LOOOOOOVES him. It’s so cute she was so happy after she kept laughing and hugging him.

Back Home!

This week we traveled to a new place. We flew into Seattle on Wednesday and made our way to Portland by Saturday. WOW winter is rough in Oregon and Washington. Here in Colorado it gets cold and we get snow, but we rarely get cold, rain, snow, AND ICE! Washington wasn’t nearly as bad as Portland. I guess they don’t get too much snow there because they didn’t seem to have the resources to clear the roads. I’m sure the spring and summers in these states are gorgeous!  The flight from Denver to Washington was about 2 hours and 40 minutes. Audrey was actually pretty good on the flights. As long as we have Yo Gabba Gabba on the ipad and snacks she’ll tolerate it. Tom lost his phone on the flight and they wouldn’t let him back onto the plane to find it GRRRRR! Later we had to deal with lost luggage too!!! They lost our bags but the carseat made it. Washinton was cold, but it wasn’t anything we weren’t used to. 

The drive to Portland was very icy and slow. Once we crossed the state line into Oregon things got pretty bad. The road was covered in ice so we were sliding around in our rental car. We drove straight to our hotel by the airport. We WERE going to stay downtown to see the area a bit, but we decided to play it safe with the weather. We didn’t want to spend double for a hotel room downtown when we’d be stuck inside. When we drove up to our hotel the fire alarm was on and there was water pouring out of the front entryway. I guess they had a pipe burst so the lobby was flooded! Luckily our room was on the 3rd floor so we had no issues. We braved the weather to get some dinner and there was an inch of ice on all the cars in the parking lot! I had never experienced ice rain or anything like that before. Everything was frozen. We didn’t leave the hotel at all today. We did go swimming since the hotel had an indoor pool. Audrey was fearless. We really had to watch her or she’d leap into the pool. Actually she was TRYING to get away from us to leap into the pool. The flight from Portland to Denver was under 2 hours which was nice. Audrey did pretty good on this flight too. She was SOOOOO HAPPY because Daddy bought her a Brobee doll at the airport! I’ll post pictures in my next post!
