Another SNOWDAY???

I miss the YMCA.
I miss "my" time.
But I'm thankful the kids are home with me.
Except that Tim almost started a fire making pancakes.
And then he tried to make Hot Chocolate Toast.
And Natalie decided Puppy would rather have marshmallows in her food bowl.
And Amy wanted to learn how to use eyeliner.
And this was all before noon.
I made a choice that they could watch "The Office" and they have been netflixing it the better portion of the afternoon. I've had to explain a couple of terms, but nothing worse than what they have heard at school. I was desperate, people!
Then I smelled myself. Sweet mercy. I realized I haven't showered for 3 days. And it was WAY PAST TIME. So I made a video. Not of me showering, but trying to remember while cooped up in this house with youngins that I am a woman, and no one- NOT EVEN A BLIZZARD- can take that away from me. So here's my movie.

Edit after the fact: Due to inquiring minds, I'm going to answer some questions.
The stuff I keep rubbing on my face-
Starting from the top- ;)
Anti acne lotion from neutrogena.
Oil of Olay Regenerist for eyes
Garnier caffiene roller with tint
Then foundation.
Then powder.
Then highlight powder.
Mascara comes after the eyes have been tinted and powdered, so it has time to set.
I took some regular lotion and put it on my eyelash curler for 2 reasons- the white parts get hard and will cut off your lashes like scissors. And also, because I put mascara on first, it tends to stick to the curler. The lotion solves both problems, as long as I don't get it IN my eye. :)
Liquid liner requires lots and LOTS of practice.
And YES, MARI- I did this just for YOU GUYS!!!!!
Glad ya'll are enjoying this!!!

We had another snow day too and like you I hadn't showered in 3 days. It felt awesome to finally get in there. I didn't do the makeup like you though, to lazy. You look gorgeous btw!

Garnier caffiene roller with TINT. OMWord, that stuff is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! I just got it 2 weeks ago and I'm totally hooked. I will never be without it again.

Oookay! I must be make-up stupid or something, but, uh... what's all that stuff you kept rubbing on your face with your hands. There was like 3 or 4 things?

And why did you do your mascara before everything else... and, what did you put on your lash curler?

HAHA! I feel like I don't know anything! Your fantastic with that liquid liner! I could never get it right... my upper eye lid is too puffy.LOL

You looked great before and you looked great after. What makes you most beautiful though is the you I know's inside. Beautiful inside and out... Lovely!

Hottie with a naughty body.

You need to come here and do my makeup for me.

Schools around here just had late starts. I'm glad my kids are all grown up. I used to dread snow days. LOL

Q said...

You're KILLING me with rubbing your eyes...gotta just use your ring finger (it's the weakest) and be very gentle. I guess I'm paranoid about wrinkles. Fun video! :-)

Mari said...

I am bored too, but I don't think I'd put on as much stuff as you do...ever. LOL. I'm with the one commenter and wondering what is all that stuff you rubbed on at first, like 4 or 5 times? ha.

You are beautiful, with or without makeup. Makeup does "paint up the old barn though" doesn't us a boost.

My biggest question is, "okay now that you are all gorgeous and dolled up, what did you do, where did you go?" Did you do all that work just for US? :)

You really are so very cute and entertaining!!

Three cheers for snow days. I can't wait to get out!

Mari said...

Thanks Charlie...Ha. Inquiring minds want to know! You're the BEST!

Post-it Notes said...

Just found your blog. LOVE it!!

Julia said...

Fascinating! I don't spend nearly enough time putting on makeup!

I used to hate snow days when my boys were little. I missed my own time and the peace and quiet.

Does the Garnier Caffeine roller really work? I've been eyeing that bad boy for a long time at the store but didn't want to plunk down the cost and have it not work!

Great blog, btw ;)
