I know we say I love you a whole bunch throughout the day. When we get off the phone, when we are walking past each other, sitting next to one another... But I don't think I express to you as much as I should just how very lucky I am to have you as my husband. As cliche as it sounds, you make me whole. You are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and I thank God I'm in this world with you by my side. You love me unconditionally, you support me no matter what and you would do anything in your power to ensure I am happy (even if its something you don't want to do). I am so grateful for you and everything you do for me and our marriage. My life is a much happier place with you in it. Just wanted you to know.
I love you always.
And this jacket was regularly $130 (or something like that) and I got it for $50. The picture doesn't quite do it justice. It is really cute and fitted on.
On my way home, I decided to skip dinner and head straight to Sheridan's. Oh how I miss living in Lubbock! It's heaven in a little plastic cup (or in my case-big plastic cup).
Another 6 hour training tomorrow. Boo.

#2. Frederic Fekkai Shampoo & Conditioner (technically 2 things, but they go together, right?)
Shampoo: An ultra-moisturizing shampoo for damaged or color-treated hair. This shampoo is formulated to restore health to the hair by replenishing moisture, while strengthening and protecting each strand. Natural cleansers gently purify the hair and natural conditioners add moisture. Apricot, avocado, calendula, and peach provide extra moisture and softness for the ultimate hydration. Damaged hair will be softer, smoother, and shinier.
Conditioner: An ultra-moisturizing conditioner for damaged or color-treated hair. This specially formulated conditioner is a great follow-up to Technician Shampoo for Dry, Damaged, Color-Treated Hair. It restores softness, silkiness, and shine to damaged hair with Pro Vitamin B5 and silk protein, which smoothes and strengthens the hair while apricot, avocado, and calendula soften it for long-lasting conditioning and shine.
A sheer-pressed powder blush with golden speckles. NARS amps up their legendary NARS Orgasm to bring you Super Orgasm - the universally flattering shimmering peachy pink blush with an extra dose of golden sparkle. The super sexy pink flush gives the effect of an ultimate super,uh hum, afterglow. The blush contains a universally flattering peachy-pink undertone and can be worn alone or layered together for more depth.
#7. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (in color "Color Adjust")
It's the stick that hides it all. This pencil disguises lines, blemishes, and flaws of any kind giving you a smoother and younger looking appearance. Cease the crease and reclaim your youth. Use it stick to help erase the lines and creases from your nose to your mouth that make you look older and more tired. A few strokes of this ecru colored line diffusing pencil, in just the right places, will help make you look young and cheery in seconds.

A new (to me) gadget rave! I've played around with Wordle a few times before. It's addicting, no? I am in the process of making one for Christmas. Since there are going to be a group of us celebrating together (friends and family), I thought giving everyone a little something to remember the trip by would be kinda neat (maybe in a little frame?). Here is a quick example to give you an idea (my master list of words is on my computer at work):
Speaking of Christmas, I would love to give a couple of these posters to people I know. My co-worker had this awesome Demotivator magazine today. I must share a few of these with you. You can order t-shirts, calendars, posters, etc. I laughed out loud at a few:
Annnd they had a COACH outlet. I have yet to use them, but I did get these 2 bags :)
I'm on the fence about the black one. I still may return it when I head to San Marcos in a couple of weeks.
Oh and our tickets for the Nutcracker came in today and I'm so excited to go I can barely stand it! I'm taking some time off at Christmas so that Jevon and I can go to Ruidoso and figured we would catch a show while there. He really is such a trooper and I love him to pieces. He even took me to see Peter Pan when we were in college. Props to my Honey!
And just because I love snapping pictures of him looking at me funny, here is Dash:

My earlier post this morning talked about Halloween. I forgot to mention that this is now up in our living room:
In my defense, Jevon burned our tree from last year, so we bought a new one a few weeks ago. Since we had company last weekend (aka more muscles), Jevon and Cody went ahead and brought it inside. Its not even Halloween and the tree is up. Lord help me. Next year I will have it up come summertime.
Speaking of Christmas, I am organizing a Secret Santa exchange at work. There is a really neat website that allows people to enter, create wish lists, and then it draws names electronically. It does all the work for you. Neat, huh?
And speaking of wish lists, mine keeps getting longer and longer and longer... I use The Things I Want to keep up with everything. Our families always ask for ideas, so instead of a handwritten list, I give them the website, they click on the picture of the item and then it takes them directly to the item. Genius! A couple of things on my list:
Amazon Kindle (Thanks to Oprah for this recommendation!)
"Stacey! Come on down! You're the next contestant on the Price is Right!"
I think this giant cupcake mold is so cute and I want one.
I almost feel like I need to be burning pumpkin or candy corn scented stuff. But I have to rave about the current scents that are making our house feel oh so cozy.
Both are from Bath & Body Works and smell wonderful. I have the Winter Candy Apple burning upstairs and the Perfect Christmas Winter burning downstairs. The winter one smells almost like oranges and cloves. When I was growing up, my Mom would buy oranges and cloves and then we would sit around and stick the cloves in the oranges to create different designs. We have done it the past couple of years and I enjoy it.
