Home for the Holidays

I've been in Alabama since last Thursday, visiting for the first time since last Christmas. It has been too long! Everyone's kept me busy...so busy, in fact, that the time has flown by, and sadly, I'm flying back to Phoenix tomorrow afternoon.

Between a hair appointment (blond highlights!), visits with some of my favorite little ones, a wedding, and two or three separate Christmas celebrations (not to mention church services...I had Communion 3 times in about as many days), I'm exhausted!

Note: I spent my last weekend in Alabama with my cousins in Birmingham. Look to your left, and you will see a link to Amanda's new blog -- The Benson Family -- created tonight. I encourage all to take a peak, mostly because there will be photos of Blake. Cuteness. Speaking of, I finally got to meet Abby (more cuteness can be found if you click on her name, also to your left).

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara

My newest mascara purchase. Don't worry: I'm not discarding the Dior Iconic. I still love it, but I was so intrigued by this mascara when I saw it, I just had to buy it.


Of course, the second I got back from Sephora, I took off the mascara I was wearing so I could try it out. So far, I love it.
