A Fabulous Deal...

So, if you are like me, you are on the lookout for great deals. Well I just received an email from a friend letting me know about this deal- Thank you Lisa :) I just got done placing an order and saving a bunch of money.

This is true! I just ordered some stuff, and the $7.50 coupon code worked too!

Nordstrom is changing the logo on their makeup, so they're selling everything for one dollar on line. The make-up line E.L.F. (eyes-lips-face) has been bought out by Nordstrom and will be re-packaged with the Nordstrom name on it. They are getting rid of the entire make up in the ELF packaging. They are selling everything for $1. You do have to pay shipping. They have everything powder,mascara, lipstick, a mineral line, brushes etc. The website is
When you check out there is a space for a coupon code. Use " CAROLINA " and save an additional $7.50 if your order is over $15.00.

Sorry, I haven't been around...

Sorry, I haven't been around much, at least in the blogging world. I thought that I would try to do a bit better. I have a little free time on my hands and thought that I would update my blog. I know that it has been awhile, so I thought that I might do one long blog post.

Last night was my first night of packing before Jordan and I move. My dear friend Courtney came over and helped me pack- such a great help! We were able to pack up a bunch of specialty cooking items that I will most likely not need during the next month as well as a whole bookshelf of books. We packed up at least eight boxes. I realized after she left how much work this packing business is going to entail. Jordan and I have moved one other time. It was from our first apartment in Dallas to our current apartment in Plano. That was a difficult move but I think this one is going to be a bit harder. Jordan is in grad school, we both work full time day jobs, and I do Pampered Chef parties in the evenings... Packing doesn't easily fit into this schedule. So, all of the above being said, let's get on to some fun pictures...

Living in Texas means that it is imperative that everyone of your children and in our case dogs must have their pictures taken in the Texas Bluebonnets. After taking what felt like 100 pictures these two were what we thought were the best ones...On a side note, Buddy and Mollee are in Dog Training. We take them every Thursday and will be continuing these classes through the second Thursday in July. I think that Buddy and Mollee especially like the treats for trainning aspect of this.

As many of you know, Jordan and I are building our first house. Below are some more recent pictures of the progress. We are very excited about our first house! The lastest that we could close would be July 10th and earliest that we could close would be June 24th. The days are really sneaking up on us. The first picture was taken on May 24th. Lonna took this picture of Jordan and me in front of the house. The second and third pictures were taken on May 29th. The granite had been installed and the lot had been grated.

This week, the tile is supposed to be done in the entry, dining, and kitchen areas. Also, the fence-posts are to be put in. Preparations are to be started for the sprinkler system as well. Everything is coming along sooo quickly.

Lonna & Milton (my in-laws) celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary on May 27th. As our gift for them, we set up a table on their back patio and cooked and prepared for them a beautiful dinner on the following Saturday. After this experience, Jordan and I decided to keep our day jobs and not go into the catering business...

I will try to do better and post more often...we will see how long that lasts.
