5/19 Firsts and Finals

*Clinique Happy in Bloom  I received this for Mother's Day and I love it.  I already had Happy in my rotation, this is a slightly sweeter floral version.

5/15 Money Monday

Low key weekend here.  We had our moms over to celebrate them on Mother's Day.  It's more relaxing at home rather than a crowded restaurant AND it's cheaper than taking nine out for brunch.

I deposited our most recent Ebates check.

5/12 First and Finals

*you are AMAZING lotion in grapefruit  This lotion is creamy and absorbs instantly.  The grapefruit scent is fresh, but not overpowering.  I love the messaging on the tube, as well!

*FAB Ultra Repair Cream  Really moisturizing and not very greasy.  This is a great, odorless hand cream.
*Sephora green tea sleeping mask  I love the rose version, so I tried the green tea 'mattifying' version.  I don't like it at all.  It's a gel and I can feel it on my face.  At times it was almost itchy.  I'll stick with the rose variety.

5/8 Money Monday

Husband installed the new windows in the basement, changing out the builder grade egress windows for vinyl windows that fully open AND match the rest of the windows on the house.  The windows weren't cheap, but we purchased at Menards and he installed them himself, which saved us some.  They look so nice and will improve sale-ability.  The extra ventilation will be good, too, as we still haven't turned our AC on.  I'm hoping to make it through this week, but the forecast is upper 80s, so we'll see.  Our parents are coming over next Sunday and we will have to turn the AC on then.  They all keep their homes in the 60s, so our current high 70s would have them melting. :)

5/5 First and Finals

*Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb  First, let's just say it, the name is stupid.  But the product is awesome!  It absorbs very quickly, doesn't sit on the face, doesn't feel sticky, but makes my skin feel moisturized all day.  Perfect for summer!
*Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color in Sunset  Gorgeous color, this glides on like a dream.  It's shiny, but not sticky.

*Fresh Soy Face Cleanser  This is pretty good, makes my skin soft.  I don't care for the smell, though.
*Hask Macadamia Oil  LOVE this and already had a back up for it.

5/1 Money Monday

In a case of splurging to save, we changed all the lightbulbs in the house to LEDs.  I found a great deal at Home Depot, which is no longer available.  Cases of LEDs were on sale for about 1/3 the regular price.  We counted bulbs, I placed an order with free shipping.  We did not throw out the bulbs we removed that were still working.  If we do decide to move, we'll put them back in and take our LEDs with us.  Now to watch our electric bill to see if it improves....
