Wow time passes so fast and I always say I will blog this week and then the weeks go by and I can't seem to find time to blog. So what better time then at midnight when I am dead tired. 
Maic and I have been working a lot but also playing a lot. We were able to go to St. George for a weekend. It was so nice to get away and enjoy the sun, which we did because it was 98 degrees outside. 
We hung out by the pool and did some biking up snow canyon and ate at some yummy places. 

Maic was in dirt heaven! Me not so much. 

The red mountains are breath taking it is hard to not get sucked into them and just bike up the whole canyon. 
We are so grateful that we were able to take a break away from our busy life and spend some time together.

Get Your Glam On!

Eyelash Extensions!!
Everyone told me for months how amazing Eyelash extensions were and I was never a believer until I caved and got them done about a year ago, I am defiantly a believer now! They are amazing! I have really curly natural lashes and before I would spend at least 10 minutes applying mascara and know I apply on my bottom lashes and I am out the door. I think this is one thing I will always have done.

I have been really struggling with finding a good foundation that covers, moisturizes and actually stays on my face and that doesn't look to thick. I think I have spent over $150. this year just trying out new foundations from MAC, Nars, Laura Mercier, Stila, You name I have tried it. I hated them all until my esthetician recommended this brand and I tried it and I am SOLD! It is really creamy and has great colors and coverage. Since using it my skin has cleared up and I have less breakouts. I also love Jane Iredale's powder for touch ups. I bought mine at Alpine Aesthetics in Highland for $36. But I am sure you can find it on Amazon.

Meliss: This post is for you:)
It is so dry in Utah and my skin feels like it is screaming for moisture all the time. I was having a really hard time finding a moisturizer that was thicker and hydrated well without leaving my face like a slip and slid. I found Bioelements and this is my new favorite thing! It is just enough moisture without leaving my face oily. They have a ton of options to choose from for all different skin types, this is just my personal favorite.

Okay ladies the older you get, the more unwanted hair we get......Or at least I do! I hated it and was constantly self conscious of it and with summer around the corner it was time to part our ways...BYE BYE Hair! I have been going to Alpine Aesthetics in Highland and they are great. This spa is cute and comfortable and the staff make you feel right at home! They also have amazing laser machines that don't hurt and are very effective. I have nothing bad to say about laser hair removal or the Alpine Aesthetics, other than it could possibly be addicting, which could be bad or good:)

Some of my Favorite Things!

I was introduced to Shallac a couple of months ago and it is my new favorite thing! The colors are great and it stays on for weeks. I am pretty picky when it comes to my nails and I love that Shallac is always shinny, and is high in pigment so you only have to paint 2 coats max! My favorite color is Tropix.

I am in love with Ombre hair coloring! It has been my most favorite hair color that I have ever had. I'm thinking I am going to rich en mine up to look like this. If only I looked like her:) One day!

I get asked all the time what I curl my hair with....This is my best-friend! It is the Enzo milano Curling rod. I love it because I can take huge sections and curl my head in about five minutes.....YES ladies FIVE minutes! It creates a more relaxed curl and it will last for 3+ days. They are a little spendy but well worth the $$$$$! This curling rod will create curls like the picture above.

OH Clarisonic I love you! I bought one of these about a year ago and it has changed my life forever! I can't believe how well it cleans your face and how much dirt it gets out. Since I have been using this I have less breakouts and my face thanks me everyday for using it:) I bought mine at Nordstrom but I know that ULTA Beauty sells them and you can print off a 20% off coupon.

After 9 years of being together I was running out ideas for Valentines Day:(. My sister is so crafty and created one of these date books for her husband and I fell in love with the idea and had to steal it and make one for Maic.
I think to date it is the best gift I have ever given him. It was a really fun project and hard, because I could only work on it when Maic was at work and I would have to take everything out and hurry and put it all away before he would get home.
I thought of all the places we like to go and I went and bought gift cards to all of those places. It was so fun because it gave us a full year worth of paid dates. It was the gift that kept giving. I think over all it took me over 20 hours to make this, and I would do it all again for my man!

Christmas Time!

Christmas is my favorite holiday and it is always so much fun to decorate the house and make lots of fun holiday treats. Since my mom was on her mission is was a bit of a different Christmas. It was pretty quiet and Maic and I were able to spend Christmas by ourselves which was really good, we were able to come closer to our savior and each other.

Really Catching Up!!!

It has been so long! Now that I really know how to blog I think I can try to do it more often. I have so much to post that I am not sure where to start. A lot has happened in the last couple of years, I won't go into detail about everything but I will post small things so you can see what we have been up too.

Sister Shirley Edwards returns home!

My mom finally returned home from her LDS Mission in Boston, MA. We missed her so much while she was busy serving the lord and I couldn't wait for her to come home. My mom is such a great example to me, I am so grateful to have her as my mother and truly feel that the lord knew what he was doing in heaven when he sent me to her. She doesn't just teach me how to be a good person she always shows me how by leading by example. I hope that when Maic and I are retired we are able to serve the lord and go on a mission, and hopefully touch as many lives as my mother did.
