Oh, Friday, you are here! I'm so happy to see you and this long weekend.

After reading a small feature about this book in Glamour magazine at the nail place, I purchased it on Amazon when I got home. "The Residence" is a great book about the inside, behind-the-scenes world of the White House. {Think "Downton Abbey."} I only started reading it this week, but it's AWESOME! I even found a free audio version on YouTube that I listened to during my lunch break at work. :) 

I got a free sample of Bare Minerals Matte with a recent Sephora purchase, and I was so impressed that I went out and bought the full-size version yesterday. Typically, I'll use concealer under my eyes and on blemishes, then put on BB Cream, and then top with powder. But with this, I just put concealer under my eyes and put this over it, and voilĂ ! 

My skin feels like it can breathe a little more, and I noticed I'm not as greasy at the end of the day as I was before. 

Thank you all for your NYC recommendations I posted about on Wednesday! I can't wait to sit down and figure out where we're going to eat...because clearly we love food! ;) 

If anyone else has any other recommendations, I'd love to hear them! 

After Walker played with our neighbors' son's Bubble Lawn Mower, he became obsessed. {And he may or may not have thrown a fit in the middle of our street when it was time to go home and give said toy lawn mower back...}'s such a fun little toy, especially for bubble-obsessed kiddos. Definitely worth all $26 we paid for this!

We have had so much rain lately. Seriously, it has been raining off and on for about eight straight weeks. I feel like I live in Seattle...but with tornado sirens. I know I'll complain about the heat and drought in about two months, but for now, I'm just really about to build an ark and start gathering animals up two-by-two. 

I'm really hoping it doesn't rain out our Memorial Day plans, but if it does, I'll just be happy to have a much-needed long weekend. 

I hope y'all have a lovely Memorial Day!
