Sucker for Makeup (and Heidi Klum)

I live for Project Runway. I would love to be on the show but I don't know how to sew; so that's a problem. Heidi has a cute personality on the show and she is fun to watch. I am a semi-sucker for brands. She has come out with a makeup line for Victoria's Secret. I haven't seen it in person but I love how the colors look on my computer! I hope looks aren't deceiving. I would love to have this collection for Christmas. Hint, Hint, Nathan or Ann or Mom and Dad! Here is a link (this one works)

Ghost Town

Ry was reading the newspaper this morning and announced to me that Beverly Hills Chihuahua was the biggest box-office hit at the movies this week. For the second week in a row. Cringe. If you saw it and liked it, I'm happy for you. Please just don't tell me about it.

For the rest of you who are looking for a great movie, go see Ghost Town! It's a well-written, funny romantic comedy, full of twists and turns. Ry and I both loved it, and I don't think it was just because we haven't been out together, alone now for nearly 10 months (We went for a date when my mom was here. She stayed with baby.).

OK--being footloose and baby-free for the evening probably did have something to do with it, but we weren't the only ones enjoying it. It was one of those movies that had audience laughing out loud and clapping at the end!

I'm not sure how widely it's playing (the theaters have to save lots of screens for back-to-back showings of Beverly Hills Chihuahua). We had to see it a small, arts theater here. If you can't see it on screen, look for it when it comes out on DVD.

Sigerson Morrison for Target!!

Sigerson Morrison is a high end and pricey brand of shoes. Neiman Marcus carried them when I worked there. They are also carried at Saks, Bergdorf etc. . . Hollywood celebs love their ballet flats. Reese's shoes were $429.00 Good news: Sigerson Morrison is designing a line for Target!! Gotta love Target. The line comes out at the end of October. I will be there to buy the aqua or silver ballet flats for under $30 ( pictured below). What a deal. I wasn't crazy about the other shoes in their line for Target but here's a link to see the collection. GO TARGET!

Yearbook Yourself

I found this fun site called Yearbook Yourself. You upload a picture of yourself and they show you how you'd look from years past. Yes, all the pics below are of me (Laura)!! I will say that the 1990 pic looks JUST like Ann's highschool/college pics when Aqua Net ruled the world!!


Below is an actual pic of my mom (left) from 1969 and my sister Ann (right) in 1990.

Halloween Again

I promise this will be my last post about Halloween! Growing up, Halloween was our mom's Christmas! I know Ann will agree with me on that :o) It was such a fun time of year; filled with candy, homemade costumes and birthdays (mom's right before, dad's on, brother's right after). Again, I have to put Target on a pedestal. Their decorations are so cute this year. Here are a few fun finds and here's the link to see more. Happy Halloween.
