I just have to say, I have so enjoyed my time at home with Camille. It's not always easy -- she's a very normal toddler (screaming, hitting, other fun things) ... and when we are reading What A Good Kitty for the seventeenth time of the day and I want to chuck it out of the open window, I do know that this is exactly what I want to be doing. Exactly what I want to be doing.
Seeing this face at the park? Worth all of the sacrifices we have made to make this decision happen. She is just funny, funny, funny and we have had a great week!

I get asked quite a bit if I am still doing the jewelry subscription box (Rocksbox). YES! I love it. Here is a peek in my latest shipment. I received a trio of Kendra Scott studs, a Perry Street rhinestone statement necklace, and a Loren Hope cuff.
The way this box works is simple. You take an online style survey. You receive a box of three pieces valued around $200. You return the jewels in a prepaid envelope (no trip to the post office necessary -- mail from your home mailbox) as often as you like, and you're sent three new pieces.
Plus, if you love an item, you can keep it, and you are offered a nicely discounted price on it.
Yep, I'm totally adding this Loren Hope bracelet to my jewelry box. Way too cute not to keep -- it would look great stacked with other bangles and cuffs!

Thank you to everyone who sent your Mexican Lime soup recipes to me earlier this week! I ended up using a blend of almost every recipe after seeing that many of them contained the same ingredients and instructions. I made a great soup for us using boneless chicken breasts, chicken broth, thinly-sliced onion, the juice of an entire lime, a can of green chiles, cumin, some salt, oregano, garlic, jalapeno slices, and chopped tomatoes. We garnished with sour cream and broken-up tortilla chips.
Um, it was awesome. My husband and I both had seconds!

Do you ever use a makeup product, then stray from it, then find it at the bottom of your makeup bag and wonder why you ever stopped using it?
Well, that happened to me with undereye concealer. I still really like my Maybelline version, but lately I've fallen back in love with my Hard Candy heavy duty concealer (on Amazon here). I have it in Light. A little goes a lonnnnng way, so it has lasted me forever. Like, years. Definitely happy that we have been reunited.

Just sending some love to this guy, who will never see this post, so I guess I'm sort of just shooting it out into the universe. We had a CATEGORY FIVE BATHTIME EMERGENCY on Wednesday ... a #2 in the tub, a #2 in the tub! (Oh gosh, it was Camille, not one of us -- I should probably point that out).
This hero of mine gloved up and handled the business. For that, I love him just a wee bit more.
Babe, you rock.
TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!
