–Going through boxes that my dad dropped off to me a long time ago and finding books from when I was a kid! Memories!!! Amelia Bedelia and Mr Pines Purple House were my favorite books.

“A white house is fine,” said Mr. Pine, “but there are FIFTY white houses all in a line on Vine Street. How can I tell which house is mine?”

Favorite Beauty Product: Have you guys heard of Paula’s Choice? I have purchased several products from their site and use Beautypedia to check out reviews on many skin care products that I am looking at buying. BzzAgent sent me Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid to try, and I have to say that I am loving it!!!! After using it for a few weeks, I noticed that my skin was looking healthier and the appearance of my pores was starting to diminish completely.

It is so important to exfoliate your skin to keep it balanced and happy. When you exfoliate you increase your cell turnover rate, allow for other products to do their job better, and help cure dull and flaky skin as well as clogged pores. Exfoliating with a product like BHA is also supposed to help fight signs of aging, and who doesn’t want that?

Paula’s Choice has given me a code to share with all of you to get 20% off your purchase on their site!!! Just enterΒ PRBHA16 at check out and enjoy shopping for some great products!!!

    I looooved Amelia Bedelia– such good books. I literally laughed out loud at the blockbuster meme- too funny!

      Tom,You are probably right.BTW what is the Democrat Party these days? A coalition of the oppressed and formerly oppressed. And who was doing most of the oppressing? Socons.See my comments at And how might we win them back? Republicans need to champion the Lelatizagion of Marijuana. It would prove our bonafides.We would become the party of Cultural and Economic Liberty. Where we should have been all along. Because Liberty is indivisible.

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! April 1, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    Amelia Bedelia!!!! Love that throwback! And the Alex and Ani bracelet is so cute!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph April 1, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    I did a review of that BHA liquid back in 2014 and have used it ever since. I like it! I like the website too, good review and skincare info on there.

    Amelia Bedelia was a favorite of mine.

    I just love your funnies!!! The horror one about Netflix is soooo true!!! Love the man-bun one too!! =)

    First of all, thank you for the song. I listened to a lil bit of it & then went to add it to my Spotify. πŸ™‚

    Secondly, the first thing I saw in your childhood books – Pound Puppies. LOVE IT! Tee hee!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista April 1, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    LOL at the Blockbuster card, I may still have mine too! And ahhhh Amelia Bedilia – so nostalgic! Loving your new Alex & Ani bracelet, that paw print is my fav! Happy Friday gurlie <3

  • Reply Dani April 1, 2016 at 2:50 pm

    e-Card twinning! My friend’s parents have a kitchen like the first pic, and I was afraid to touch anything lol. It sure was pretty though! And Amelia Bedelia! She was a favorite of mine too, along with Bernstein Bears! It’s really a good thing that there isn’t a World Market in my area, because I’d waste wayyy to many hours browsing all their cool stuff. So many good funnies today- love the Trump one (always) and Sheldon/Netflix- I hate when that happens! Happy weekend!

  • Reply kristen April 1, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    oh hey look at all those kid books πŸ™‚ so cute!!
    that recipe looks delicious. and i love that pretty floral dress, and i am off to check the drugstore/high end make up article out. also, i have heard about paula’s choice but never actually bought anything. i need to buy new skincare stuff, but i get so overwhelmed when i start looking that i just give up lol. the craft store frozen meme is basically me and shopping in general OOPS

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders April 1, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    Getting caught up with friends is definitely awesome! Sometimes you don’t realize how much you’ve missed actually talking to each other until you get together again. That’s so awesome that your dad brought over some of your favorite books from growing up! I’m still mad at my mom for giving ours away, along with our Barbies and my little ponies! I hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 1, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    I’ve found some great music from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals too! They really do have some great music!

    The “I’m Batman” pic is a fav of mine! It makes me laugh every time I see it! And I’m checking out that drugstore/high end make up post now. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

    i had that same cinderella book! i read that over and over again, i loved it so much.
    don’t you love it when you find skin care that just makes your skin glow?

  • Reply Lindsay April 1, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    I can’t wait to check out the Amelia Bedelia post… I can only imagine. Those kitchens are my dream! AH! I might actually be more motivated to cook… LOL! The Blockbuster thing made me laugh so hard. And the Frozen thing… I’ve taken to sneaking things in the house in my purse! Ha! Hope you have a great weekend!

  • Reply Jenna April 1, 2016 at 11:34 pm

    I see a running theme in those last three gifs, and I approve– particularly of Klaus. Because Klaus.

  • Reply Kaitlyn April 1, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    Amelia books <3 Throwback! Omg that blockbuster Meme is so funny. Those wraps look delicious! I looked at a top similar to that floral dress. We're on the same floral fashion wavelength.

  • Reply Laura April 3, 2016 at 3:06 am

    Love that dress so much! And also, Paula’s Choice! I’ve never had what would be considered “good skin” but I’ve been using PC products almost exclusively for a couple years and I’ve actually received compliments!!

  • Reply Katy April 3, 2016 at 12:24 pm

    My phone autocorrected ducking to fucking the other day and I had a really, really proud moment where I just looked at my phone, smiling, thinking “finally, you get me”.
    And that app store one…. so true. That’s when I’m like COME ON IPHONE, I THOUGHT YOU KNEW ME!
    That spring dress is GORGEOUS and those kitchens…. oh man… I wish I was rich. I did get our digital front door lock to work today after my boyfriend lived in this house two years and swore he couldn’t figure it out. So, I’ve got that luxury going for me now. lol

    we read a lot of amelia bedelia as a kid (new series) at work. i had that cinderella book! omg pound puppies!! my has saved all of my youngest bro and sis’ stuff, but my older sis and i just have the memories.
    HA about the clicking the ad on your phone. THE WORST!

  • Reply Kelli April 4, 2016 at 9:28 am

    I’ve been reading Amelia Bedelia to K and she loves her even though she can’t remember her name. She always asking for an Annie Manny book. It took me at least an hour to figure out who the heck Annie Manny was. Ha
