Hey girls,

So how did everyone's weekend go? I wasn't online much because a friend of the familys died on Friday so between organising things, going to the removal, funeral etc.. i didn't have much time at my PC. I did go out for dinner on Friday evening though with my family because my parents were going on hols today for 2 weeks. I gave mum a HUGE list of all the make up i wanted! *fingers crossed she brings back lots*

So spill the beans girlies, what did ye all get up to? Any shopping??

I had a very nice weekend. Was sunny and warm here in Texas. Didn't do any shopping. Just did house/yard work, laundry, cleaning, etc. Felt like I got alot accomplished.

Laura, I'm sorry about your family member dying.

Trisha, I love that new EL blush you got. Does it have shimmer, pearl or a matte finish. Might have to try that one out.


Tony, I have both my Mother and Father and consider myself lucky to still have them. I know it must be really hard loosing a parent. I am sorry.

edited to add...I did buy some flowers for my outside pots!

laura, i'm sorry for your loss.

my weekend was pretty bad. my boss's wife went into labor yesterday during a huge hit at work (restaurant) and she started having complications and got the phone call, so he went crazy, the kitchen got backed up, customers were complaining, etc. i wanted to walk out and cry. people can be so cruel

I'm sorry to hear about your dad Tony.
The circumstances around my grandfather's death were very difficult -- took me about 10 years to be at peace. I thank God that I have both of my parents and 3 of my grandparents still with me.

But on a lighter note, in regards to my weekend:

Friday was my first official day of work with MAC and I worked the whole weekend. Nordstroms had a big beauty event, so the store was jam packed & we did lots of makeovers. I'm slowly learning where everything is, getting a little faster at the register... my co-workers are sweeties & have been really helpful, answering all my questions. I love the fast-paced environment -- keeps me constantly busy and on my toes!

Oh, and last night I saw SIN CITY. Pretty cool!!

I'm sorry about your father, Tony.

Laura, I'm sorry about your family friend.

I've never lost anyone close to me. Not looking forward to it, but it's inevitably a part of life.


On the lighter topic of my weekend... I did some shopping and bought another MAC doubles blush, Cashew/Rosewood, and a Blue Peep Fluidliner. I FINALLY bought Blue Peep from the MAC freestanding store because I have been waiting for almost a month for my MAC order to come in. However, it never got here. Two weeks after they supposedly first shipping the item, I called and the rep told me she would order a reshipment. So I waited, but it didn't come. So on Saturday (two weeks after the supposed reshipment), I called again and the rep told me that there was a computer glitch and the reshipment never went out. So she ordered a reship. But the MAC website indicated that Blue Peep was sold out! So I called back and cancelled the entire order and went to the MAC store to pick up Blue Peep. I'm happy to report that I am in LOVE with Blue Peep.


I also spent time at my parent's house from Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening, which is why I wasn't online most of the weekend. Although they have internet access, it's only on one computer, which is constantly being hogged by a teenager and a pre-teen.

Laura sorry to hear of the death of your friend, it is never easy, our thoughts are with you.

Tony sorry to hear about the death of your dad.

I unfortunately am around both happiness and death, I work at a florist. It is very hard to work with family members in their time of need. I find myself getting choked up even when you have no idea who the person was. And you see all ages. The hardest one by far was several weeks ago when a boy lost his life to cancer, he was just 3. I have to deliver the flowers to the funeral home as well. It's tough all around. On a happier note I do also get to see the birthdays, births, anniversaries and other happy occasions.

As for my weekend, I went and ordered my dress for a friend wedding that I will be in, coming up in November, very pretty dress! Then my whole family headed out to the movies and saw the Pacifier. Very cute movie, the kids loved it. Vin had an upper body that doesn't stop! And then on Sunday I slept all day cause I was up sick all night. Fun!

I'm also sorry for your losses, Laura, and Tony...

My weekend was not much fun. Spent all weekend working on a computer program for a class and I still can't figure out what's wrong with it.
Plus I have tons of stuff due in the next 3 weeks so I need to get this program done as soon as I can!

Sorry for your losses Lau & T...


I really didn't do much at all this weekend. Hung around the house... hung out with my friend - that's about it. No shopping, nothing exciting!

well, I went partying to chicago this weekend!!


I went there friday, was supposed to come back saturday, enden up leaving sunday evening!!!! I hardly slept, came home at about 6-7 am both nights, and got up at 9-10 am already!! God, I was so BEAT on Sunday. I couldn't get up this morning to go to class!
( I haven't done this in a long time)

This was an absolutely unplanned trip! (these are always the best) A friend from Chicago called Friday night around 7 to say Hi, and an hour later I was on my way to Chicago (3 hour drive, not so bad).

But I have to tell you, I've tried THE BEST Burger in my LIFE this weekend!!!!!!! It was a $19 burger, so it better be good!!

Now I'm hungry..
