It's cocktail time!

It's simple, it's yummy and it's pink. What more can you ask for? This is very good virgin too, so it would be good for kids or if you're expecting or just don't feel like drinking. Here's what you got to do...

For an exact recipe mix one liter of Ginger Ale (doesn't have to be diet, but I always prefer diet soda), one Strawberry Kiwi Crystal Light, and a cup (or two) of plain vodka.

Favorite Things

Lately I've been loving the following:

MAC's Crem Color Base in Pearl
I use it under my eyeshadow as a base.

MAC's Liberty of London Cremesheen lipstick in Everhip. It's such a pretty peachy pink color. It's light and very suttle. Perfect for spring!

Catwalk Fashionista Shampoo and Conditioner. Great for colored hair. It also lathers very nicely.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Hair Serum
Now this stuff ROCKS! It's the best! If you have thick hair I highly suggest you pick some of this stuff up. It penetrates deep into your hair shaft where it displaces water and constricts the hair. It also smoothes and cuts down on blow dry time. I cannot live without this stuff!

Bath & Body Works Wallflowers
. Awesome plug in air fresheners.

Flipside Pretzel Crackers
. Half pretzel half cracker, yum! Perfect little snack and there's only 70 calories in a serving (which is 5 crackers)!

And last but not least, PARAMORE. I know I've said this like 3 times already, but I'm still loving them! I cannot get enough. I'll be listening to them for days on my iPod then decide that's enough and change it to shuffle. But then what do I do? I skip and skip songs until I land on a Paramore song. haha And... I bought tickets to see them live in September!!! I can't wait! I mean sure we'll be the oldest people there but still. It'll be fun.

I try to keep this blog mostly PG-13 when in reality I'm rated R with a little bit of NC-17 thrown in. A have a very dirty mouth.

There are so many things that I want right now. Unfortunately we can't really afford to spend on things that we don't absolutely need at this point, but I can dream, right?

1. Boston Terrier puppy. I don't know if it's because of the whole TTC issues or what, but all of the sudden, I really want a puppy! Not like we need another pet when we have 4 dogs and a cat living here currently (2 dogs and the cat are ours). So it's definitely NOT going to happen any time soon. But look how stinking cute they are! Oh, and Husband wants two. Two at the same time. He's more insane than I am! I had planned on not getting another dog until our first child was old enough (maybe like 3 or 4?) to want one or to give it them a puppy. Our children will definitely grow up animal lovers. :)

2. DSLR Camera. I've wanted one for a couple years now. I can possibly put this in the need section, because c'mon, you've seen the pictures my camera takes. It sucks ass. I can't even take pictures at night or change the settings to anything other than auto flash because if I do, the pictures turn out super blurry.

3. A new simsuit. Ok, this is definitely in the "needs" department. The problem is, I am having the hardest time finding one that either fits or looks decent. There are a couple really cute ones I like at Target right now. this one, that I'm in love with.
