Horsing Around

Here are some cute sayings I read on some horse t-shirts in a magazine...

Dogs have owners...HORSES have Staff!

The hardest thing about riding...is the ground!

Horses leave hoofprints on your heart!

Don't follow where the path may lead...go where there is no path and leave a trail!

Riding : The art of keeping the horse between you and the ground.

Laugh and Ride often!

The magazine I found these in... backinthesaddle.com

Base Foundation

Just thought I would share this with you.....a makeup tip, or more of a makeup observation. A friend (I won't name names) a while back stopped wearing base foundation and just wore powder. She just wore powder for about a year maybe longer. Now don't get me wrong, she has beautiful skin and a beautiful complexion so only wearing powder works for her. So the other day I saw her and she looked about 10 years younger (her face) and I thought maybe she had a facelift, or a chemical peel or something because she looked so much younger. I asked her and she said she started wearing base foundation again. I couldn't believe the difference it made! Anyway just thought I would pass that along for anyone wanting a change or maybe have a special occasion coming up and you want to dress it up a little. She said she used a liquid foundation, Revlon. If anyone has a makeup tip they would like to share please comment!

Skin Care

In the winter I love this product....M.D. Forte II Facial Cream with Glycolic Acid. It gets the dead skin off and gives you a nice glow. You can use it all year around but I just use it in the winter. They recommend you start with I and then move up to II because it has a higher Glycolic Acid. They also have a III but I like the II. You can get this at your dermatologist. I usually am able to find it on ebay and you save about 10.00 to 15.00 $ even with shipping.

Update

Hello! I haven't given a diet update in a long time. Back in the summer (yeah, I can't believe it is Nov already either!) I was trying to make a goal weight before going to Cabo in Aug. Well I got within 3 pounds of my goal when we went to Cabo so I was pretty happy!! Once we got to Cabo at our resort they had gourmet buffets and in a moment of weakness I thought...all bets are off, its my vaction! But after about 5 minutes I came back to reality and thought about all the hard work I had done to get to this point and decided I didn't want it to all go out the window. And believe me I can put on 10 pound in a matter of days!! So I worked really hard not to overeat. I ate what I wanted but didn't overeat and didn't go back for seconds. When we got home I had put on 3 pounds but I was pretty happy with that considering what it could of been! I got the 3 pounds back off and I am happy to say that I did get to my goal weight! I have been able to stay at my goal now since sept! I am going to try really hard not to fall off the wagon this winter because I don't want to go through that again. Last winter I really let my self go crazy and it was a lot harder to get back then what I thought. So my goal now is to not fall off the wagon and keep up with diet and exercise. So far so good!

Halloween 2008























We had a great Halloween! Me and Paul were Bat Girl and Johnny Depp and Eric and Cheryl were Jane Fonda and Richard Simons! Paul was the Johnny Depp pirate and I think he said "Aaarrrrrr" a million times that night! All the kids loved Paul's costume! I think a lot of kids on the block thought he was a real pirate! LOL! And as you can see Eric played his part all night too!! LOL! He was hilarious!!! All the kids got a ton of candy and just had so much fun!! Hope everyone had a great Halloween!!
