Top ten rules every marriage should live by

Hey Girl, Hey!

Stumbled across this great blog entry I want to share with everyone.
It's about marriage & relationships and how not to screw it up.

Please read it

" Let's be honest, times are a changing'. Marriage isn't like it used to be where it was also a matter of survival. I didn't inherent my wifes farm and our kids don't plant and hunt to eat. We live in a digital world where the reality of life is that the grass always looks greener and more manicured but the reality is, like all marriages, the lawns that look the best are the ones that are tended to the most!"

Always it classy, never trashy

New title page
Taking you directly to my Etsy shop!

Any Spring Weddings coming up!?
Don't forget to order your custom Keg Bag!


Birchbox numba 1 review

Item 1:
Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Shimmering Pink Nude

What the site says about it-
This gloss drenches your lips in shine and color that is never sticky.Glides on smooth with soft squeeze tube and custom designed tip.

My 2 cents
Glides on super smooth, isn't sticky & has a good neutral color.
I don't get why the line is called Sugarbomb though.
It has nothing to do with sugar, it doesn't taste sweet and the products are all in the pink shade family.
Which to me, doesn't scream sugar...?

Item 2:
Beauty Protector 
Leave in Conditioner 

What the site says about it-
It conditions, shields from heat & sun as well as detangles. 
Plus, it's 100% vegan

My 2 cents
Why is it exclusive?
It makes my hair silky and smooth without the grease.
10k other reviews on the site give it a 4.5 outta 5.
That's pretty darn good. 
I hate that I can only order it though, I prefer the instant gratification of the mall.
I am a girl of the 80's after all.

Item 3:
Harvey Prince
Perfume sample

What the site says about it-

The spritz that greets you with a smile.

The world's a busy place. Let time stand still for a moment, and with one spritz, taste the sweetness of Meyer lemon in your cold glass of lemonade, smell the pink plumerias budding, and revel in the jubilant tweets of the nearby hummingbird. Before diving back into reality, say "Hello" to your body and soul.

Harvey Prince is thrilled to bring you a splash of spring with our latest, hippest, most energizing fragrance, "Hello." With a twist of citrus in homage to that fresh squeezed glass on the breakfast table, the subtle yet invigorating notes are layered with Summer Forsythia, an early Spring floral, to bring out the blossoming glow within you. As the scent wears through the day, you'll be warmly greeted with the enchanting smell of Pink Plumerias, found in the fragrant floral Leis of Hawaii bestowed upon guests, friends, and loved ones.

Embrace your surroundings, reach out, smell, touch! The warm and soft rays of sunshine on your shoulders will keep you company through the day. Take a whiff and just say, "You had me at Hello.

My 2 cents
Wow that description was a little ridiculous. 
It smells good if you are the Clinique Happy perfume type.
Which is too floral for me.
( And too HAPPY I guess, remember I have resting bitch face after all. Not to mention it also gives me flashbacks of freshman year in high school)
However the scent did wear all day and I appreciated the sample came with a spray tip and I wasn't forced to dab it all over my body with my finger.

Item 4:
Full size!

This one is pretty self explanatory.
I stuck it in the Hub's lunch box though because I'm on a diet.
Ha. Okay,the diet part is a lie.
I knew if I ate it, I would eat the whole damn thing at once because I lack self control.
Once you pop, you can't stop.... or something like that.

Item 5:
Ruby Wings
Color Changing Solar Nail polish
In Ride em' Cowgirl

What the site says about it:
Can't decide on the color, wear 2 in 1. It's one shade indoors and another shade outdoors. Also lightly scented with floral notes.

My 2 cents:
The sun doesn't shine in Seattle.
I smelled no notes of floral.

Over all I was happy with my first box and am anxiously waiting for the arrival of the next one.
Hopefully it is packed full of stuff I can use!

Happy Birthday to my favorite Ninja

This weekend was Angela's Birthday Extravaganza!

We started the festivities with lunch at Chaco Canyon.
An organic Vegetarian Cafe in Seattle.
Which Angela and I thought was in U Village, but as it turns out is really on the Ave. in the U Dist.
This was brought to my attention after making fun of another girl who called to say she had paid for parking and wondered where Angela and I were at. 

We were all like
 "Why did she pay to park?! It's free here. She doesn't know what she's doing!"

Turns out, we were the dummies and were actually at the wrong place entirely.

So, we called another friend who was on her way to meet us and asked her to pick us up.
This was after I called her on my phone because Angela's phone was acting a fool.
Since this particular friend isn't someone I call on the daily, I wasn't positive the number I had for her was correct.

So when I called I said:  " Hello, is this Stacy?"

She said: " No, you have the wrong number."

To which I apologized and hung up.
As Angela and I searched my text archive to locate the right number, my phone rang.
It was the person I had just called.

I answered: "Hello?"

Caller: "This is Stacy"

For a split moment I thought, WOW I really just controlled my universe there.
 I can't believe my mind control powers have gotten so strong!

 I was quickly brought back to reality though.

Me: "Whaaaaat?"

Caller: " This is Stacy! You called the right number, I was joking with you and then began to tell you some other story and a few minutes later when you didn't respond, I realized you had hung up and I was talking to myself "

Obviously, my friends and I are meant for each other.

Moving on. 
We made it to Chaco.

Where I had a delicious 
Thai Peanut Bowl
  Mango Mint Smoothie 

It was all super good and I didn't feel bloated and gross like I usually do. 
Check it out if you haven't yet. 
It's worth your veggie time.

Then a friend from Montana showed up and surprised Angela!!!
Only after my failed attempt to keep Angela in the Ladies Room with me long enough for the surprise guest to make an entrance.
That story is far to long to get into, but lets just say, if you are trying to trick someone, make sure they don't have access to your text messages.

Then this happened

Next stop was our hotel to pretty up, have a few (more) drinks and get ready for a night out.

Part of Angela's present!

This consisted of conversations regarding Demi Moore and her 19 year old playboy photos, dead squirrels, bisexual estheticians, stories about divorced husbands who lead secret lives, douchebag ex fiance's and cell phones in bags of rice due to being dropped in public toilets ( yes, that actually happened earlier in the day)

On her Rice bag phone. AKA Potty Phone

Off to dinner at Liams

The food was delicious, even though they screwed up my order.
The service we alright..ish, even though I was never offered a second cocktail and dessert was good because we all ordered it and it never came. 
Saving us many calories and money in the long run.
The manager apologized for basically sucking at life, but besides offering us free desserts to go ( which we didn't want, since we were headed to a club) we were given nothing.
So, I tipped....nothing.
Yep, that just happened.

Off to The Ballroom in Fremont.
Where things got weird.

I will not incriminate anyone on here with the permanent damage of the written word.
But I will say, long islands shouldn't be served to girls over 23 and stripper poles and cages bring out the naughty in everyone. Even the good girls.

The night came to a close like this:
It's 2 am
 1 of us ended up outside trying to have a conversation with the bouncer about something they apparently felt was very important

1 of us wasn't allowed back in after a smoke break outside

4 of us were asked to leave because someone closed their eyes and was accused of sleeping

1 of us got the bouncer's number 

1 of us accidentally stole a blazer ( the jacket ,not the car)

3 of us crammed in a car we aren't sure we were invited into for a ride home

Flash forward to Sunday AM

Michelle ended up crashing at the hotel the night before but hadn't planned on it.
To save herself from the walk of shame in her outfit from last night, she stole my yoga pants and t shirt and wore Angela's shoes home.
Accidentally, I might add.
She didn't know she was wearing someone else's shoes!
How do you do that?!
I'm not even mad, I'm impressed.

The rest of us stood in line for breakfast at

If you haven't been there, go.
If you haven't seen the menu, look at it.
If you aren't hungry now, you don't have a soul.

Oh yeah, there is a toppings bar.

You might remember when I came here for 

Also, I have no idea where this bruise came from.
But I do know, I can't party like I'm 17 anymore.

Then I came home and took a nap.
Thank God for naps.

Happy Birthday weekend Gurl.
