Miscellany Monday

I didn't mean for two+ weeks to pass between my posts, but, alas, it did.

And now it's May.

WHAT?

Let's catch up with a few random things, shall we...

01.) Years ago we got a Chipotle in our area so Scott and I dutifully checked it out. We liked it except for the fact you have to buy chips and salsa, which is the opposite of every other Tex-Mex place, so we boycotted Chipotle on principle (although I suppose most fast food Tex-Mex places make you buy them but I consider Chipotle a step above). Last week, for some odd reason out of the blue, we tried it again.

As evidenced by this awkward selfie on the patio.
Needless to say we all three are now hooked on their bowls and have somehow managed to eat it three times in the last two weeks.

I don't know what to say about that. #addictivepersonality

02.) We had a wonderful ladies tea at church weekend before last. Everything from the decor, the company, the food and most importantly the two lovely women that spoke from their hearts and God's word made the event perfect.
03.) When I got home from Ladies Day Annelise was bursting at the seams to show me her Lego creation. She had an extra credit assignment for math to design and build her dream room to scale, so of course she decided to make hers out of Legos.
Notice her defense system of dual cross bows by the bed and a pizza on her nightstand.
A mailbox conveniently located by the front door along with a garage for her ATV (I think it might also double as a boat) and purple motorcycle.
I got a kick out of all her details!

I also got a kick out of the fact she did this purely on her own and was ready to turn in two weeks early. Math has been a little touch and go this quarter so an opportunity for extra credit was MUCH appreciated.

04.) I've been experimenting with a few self-tanners to get a little glow going.
I've used the Jergens Natural Glow off and on the last few years and have always liked the gradual color that develops.

The other two self-tanners are recent finds and I must admit, I likey.

I ordered the Dr. Gross glow pads from Amazon after reading a few bloggers (like Big Mama and Shay) sing their praises. I like that the tanner is on the wipe and all you have to do is swipe it all over your face, neck and chest (carefully of course). So far I've only used two wipes, maybe once a week or a little longer. The color is a tiny bit strong at first (I put it on before bed and the color develops overnight) but then wears really well and looks natural. Since I use my Clarisonic daily though I don't think any self tanner will last for too long on my face.

The Tanwise bronzing sunless mousse is my newest obsession, thanks to an Instagram post last week.   I've never used a mousse before but it goes on really smooth and the bronze color helps you see where you are applying it so you can avoid streaks. There is an immediate color, which is a nice brown, not orange-y at all, then the self-tanner builds over time. I used a mitt to apply which makes everything so much easier and less messy. The reviews compare Tanwise to St. Tropez, but it's much cheaper ($12.00 vs. $30.00!). Also? There's no funky self-tanner smell. I'm hooked!

And I guess that's enough miscellany for now.

Happy Monday, y'all!
