God Gave Me You






God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton on Grooveshark



I’ve been a walking heartache

I’ve made a mess of me

The person that I’ve been lately

Ain’t who I wanna be



But you stay here right beside me

Watch as the storm goes through

And I need you





God gave me you for the ups and downs

God gave me you for the days of doubt

For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you





There’s more here than what were seeing

A divine conspiracy

That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
Ill be the flattered fool
And I need you







God gave me you for the ups and downs

God gave me you for the days of doubt

For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you





On my own I’m only

Half of what I could be

I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo







God gave me you for the ups and downs

God gave me you for the days of doubt

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt


For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you
Gave me you



To my husband: I could not have made it through these past few weeks without you. You are my strength. I love you. I thank God that he gave me you!

Makeup Bag Staples

If you are anything like me, you find something you love and you STICK WITH IT...seriously.

Below are some products that I don't think I'll ever quit using!!!!


1.

The FIRST thing I put on my face is primer.

I've tried so many different primer's y'all, and THIS is the only one I use now. I love it!



It's called NYX HD Studio Primer and it is awesome!

The description says that the "Silky and lightweight formula helps to erase the appearance of fine lines and pores for a smooth finish before applying foundation. Good for all skin types. Softens lines. Your makeup will look fresh and flawless all day."

I have only seen this brand at ULTA, so that is where I buy it. I buy online or in the store. Get some. It's awesome. And it smells good!






2.

Now...I don't know if I should admit this or not...but I wear the SAME EXACT SHADE OF LIPSTICK every day. Yes. Every day. I NEVER CHANGE IT.

What's wrong with me?!?! 

I guess I just love it that much! I have tried so many other kinds and colors, and it just does not give me the same results!

What is it, you ask?


I'm addicted to this. Seriously. It stays on ALL DAY. Yes! ALL DAY!!!!

If I need to freshen it up a bit, I'll just add a tiny amount of lip gloss for smoothness, and that's it!

Love it and HIGHLY recommend it. 




3.

I also wear this mascara EVERY DAY. I never leave the house without mascara. Never. Even if I am just going to the store. I have to have it on!


This shiz is amazing. It makes my lashes look so much longer!!!!






4.

Speaking of eyes...my allergies have been going super crazy lately...

I SWEAR by these eye drops. They are A MIRACLE in a bottle! If you suffer from red eyes during allergy season, these drops are just for you!


Naphcon A Eye drops!!

I blogged about it last year...and yes, I still use this brand!





5.

Before I go to bed every night, I put on lip balm. Don't know why, always have and always will.

For the past 2 months or so, I've been using EOS lip balm.

I'm in love.



I ONLY wear this balm in Lemon Drop. I'm a snob. Tee hee hee!



What are the staples in your makeup bag???

This Wont Hurt A Bit



What does Renee love love love about Pinterest??


"Since I found Pinterest several months ago I have pinned 3825 pins and liked 397 to date. So obviously I'm slightly obsessed with it. You might need a pintervention when you have 39 boards! :) My absolute favorite board of mine is 'Make me full, Make me fat'. It was a toss up between that one and the 'Words of Wisdom' board and I decided that I much prefer to eat than read. So sad. haha. But to be fair I love to cook and pinterest is the most amazing recipe book ever. I love the fact that I can go to one site and be inspired by an amazing picture or fall in love with a great outfit. Come on over and visit me and my insane amount of pins now! Happy Wednesday y'all!"


Isn't she a doll?!?!?! LOVE HER! She is just as obsessed with Pinterest as I am!

It got me thinking about all the other blogs and shops out there that are just starting out or looking to expand. Things cost money, which we all know we want to save some money, so I thought it would be fun to offer people some free advertising space on my blog!

I Love It.

It does not take very much to make me happy.....


A new iPhone case? That makes me ecstatic!

Then, when I find the exact pattern of Chevron print that my iPhone case is in on Google images, that makes me even MORE ecstatic.

Clearly, I need a life.

Another thing that makes me happy?

Chandeliers!

Hubs and I went to the brand new Restoration Hardware here in Houston and let me tell y'all...that place is amazing!!!!





I am IN LOVE with the soft, classic, elegant look of the actual chandeliers above, and then the added touch of the metal birdcages. Stunning.

Something I don't love too much?


Movie theater carpet. Gross.

We went to see The Hunger Games! It was pretty good. I'll always tell y'all that the books are SO MUCH BETTER, but the movie was good.

How was your weekend?


PS---Go to Renee's blog here!!! I have something special over there for y'all today!!! xoxoxoxo

What does Erin love love love about Pinterest??

"I have fallen head-over-heels for Pinterest in the past months! It makes me giddy with excitement when I find new adorable pins and I have found it inspiring in many different areas of my life. One of the things I love most about Pinterest is how many cute fashion and hairstyle tips I've picked up. It is so refreshing to find new ways to wear my clothes and fun styles to try in my hair! I have also found many new recipes that are getting me excited about cooking and so many amazing craft ideas that I can't wait to try--now I just need to find the time to create them. :) As a teacher, I have found Pinterest to be a fantastic sources of teaching resources and activities, many of which I have been able to use in my classroom. I absolutely love Pinterest and am so excited to be sponsoring this week's Oh, How Pinteresting!"
