I wouldn't want to live without . . .

My L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara.

This stuff is amazing. It doesn't run or smear, but with a bit of water comes off in clumps. It is tube mascara, so rather than being painted on it somehow forms tubes around your eyelashes. I have been using this stuff for over 5 years. I remember my mom and sister asking me if I wanted waterproof mascara for Tripp's funeral, but I had already fallen in love with my tubes. 

Displaying IMG_1060.JPGThis stuff never wears off. Ever. But it washes off VERY easily. I have used waterproof mascara before and it pales in comparision to this stuff. There are many different brands of tube mascara. I have tried one from Sephora. I hated it. The tube was faulty and the price was way more. I get mine when I order from Here is the link, but you can likely pick it up in store as well. I just LOVE me some online shopping!

While we were skiing in Kimberly Calder and I had a shower together after a hot tub. I rubbed my eyes and all my tubes of mascara rubbed off on my hands. I gasped and exclaimed, "THERE ARE SPIDERS ALL OVER MY HANDS!"  Calder glanced down and screeched at the top of his lungs. I scared him more than I had even anticipated and immediately explained to him what it was. We giggled about it after his heart started beating again!

Have a great Thursday!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
