    Rise and shine. It’ FRIDAY!!!!

    I’m sorry y’all, but this cracked me up.

    Pie and lattes, mwahahahahahhahaha!!!!! That’s a killer combo if ya ask me. Speaking of pilates, I really need to use my groupon for the 10 sessions I bought. This is the second time I’ve purchased the same deal to the same pilates studio. I never used the first one and then it expired. My latest one will expire next month. Crap, I better start pilate-ing.

    Last night, in a move of desperation, I dumped the rest of the candy corn; yes, even those big-ass sugary delicious pumpkins. I can’t be temped anymore. I don’t care who you are, no one can eat just a “few” pieces of candy corn. The entire bag? Why certainly, but just a couple? Nope, impossible.

    I got my reverse ombre hair done yesterday. What do you think? This was my reward for ditching those cornies, haha.  Dominique, my stylist said I’m the first client she’s had ask for the reverse look. Dom is fantastic and I’ve referred many people to her. If you live in the Dallas area and want a fab stylist that knows color, email me and I’ll give you Dom’s contact info. She truly is amaze! lisa@lisapaige.com

    Did I mention how much I love Z’s new haircut? Dom cut his locks off  Wednesday.

    Zach’s doesn’t look like a baby anymore with his new do. I’ve got a big boy on my hands now. Today as we were getting out of the car he says “Mommy, I’m going to jump. Ready, set go!” I about died. He gets in and out of my car and refuses to let us help him. The little conversations he’s starting up are completely adorable. Such a fun age.

    Okay one last picture, then I’ll stop.

    My latest order of glow pads came yesterday. These are my holy grail. I love that the new formulation doesn’t smell.

    Today is our anniversary and we’re celebrating by going to dinner at our favorite restaurant and then seeing Michael Buble tonight. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 11 years.

    I was 22 and Stu was 24 in this pic. Good lord, I am feel old.

    Alright, the kiddos are up and I need a refill on my coffee.

    Have an awesome Friday!

    Well today was quite eventful.

    Zach got his first real haircut. To ensure he’d get a good cut and not a bowl cut, I took him to my girl, Dominique. I brought his ipad and like a big boy, Z sat on my lap and watched Yo Gabba Gabba while Dom snipped away. I thought I’d be more emotional, but because I have so much confidence in Dominique and knowing she’d do a good job, I was at ease and peace with it all. Geesh, you’d think by reading this, someone had died. My friend Michelle was holding Ainslee there for moral support, haha. His long hair means so much to me. It’s sort of his identity in a way. I love his hair long, but honestly, I was getting sick or morons thinking he was a girl. Oh, and the fact that he was always getting food in it. Baths every other night is one thing, but every single night?? Nope, momma can’t do that. Now, we won’t have that problem anymore.

    And to think, just yesterday my sweet boy looked hair gorgeous hair like this…le sigh.

    Gulp…

    In other LP news, my second stitch fix box came today. I’m keeping one top. Unfortunately, the sleeves were too long on the two other shirts and the olive-green coat they sent me was similar to one I already have. The necklace was just okay. I’ll post a pic of my new swag tomorrow when I wear it ;0)  I love stitch fix simply because of the 1) surprise and 2) the convenience. Now that I have kids, I rarely have time to go shopping for myself, let alone try stuff on. There’s no commitment with stitchfix. Sign up for one month, see how you like it, and go from there. Easy peasy.

    This was my snack today. Control the drool. That would be a delicious 160 calorie double chocolate chunk quest bar warmed with two soft and fluffy marshmallows on top. Best 210 calorie treat I’ve had in a while. This picture looks so good, I pinned it.

    You’re welcome :0)

    Morning.

    Okay, so I’m making a conscious effort to get up early with Stu so that I can drink my coffee and watch the news for a few before Z ans A get up. There is nothing worse than getting up at the same time as your kids. You have NO time to yourself, or as say “ease into the day.” Anyway, so here I am blogging, drinking coffee and watching the news at 6:30a. Wakey wakey.

    Speaking of the kids, Ainslee turned 8 months yesterday. Where is the time going? She’s cutting her first bottom tooth. Exciting stuff.

    Meanwhile, Zach is totally into pumpkins this year. He LOVES them. We have several trips planned to the pumpkin patch over the next couple of weeks. Seeing him get so excited over them gets me excited and makes me smile.

    Isn’t this a cute Halloween idea?

    Too bad it wouldn’t ever last at my house. We’d eat those cornies so fast. Lately I’ve been adding a few to my ice cream. Sure, they get cold and harden up, whoooofc. Still amaze!

    If you’re a fellow stay-at-home-mom, you’ve got to read this great article. What the hell is wrong with people? I admit that before we had kids, I was one of those clueless ignorant people who thought being a sahm was a luxury, fun and easy. OKAY, young naive Lisa. Okay.

    11 years!

    Ahhhh, our 11 year anniversary is next week. It just so happens that our fave, Michale Buble will be in town that night, so of course we’re going to the show. I can’t wait. I made sure to book my hair appointment that day so I’ll be freshly highlighted and blown out for our fun night.

    Bad brows..

    I’m thinking about going to the brow bar at Ulta today. My friend went recently and had a good experience. My brows have seen better days.

    Dior love

    I’m diggin’ Dior’s new overcurl mascara these days. For the past four years, the ONLY mascara I’ve used is Bobbi Brown’s no smudge. I’ve tried other mascaras but have always gone back to BB. At the trend show 2 weeks ago, overcurl was featured. I bought it (because it was something new) but assumed it would be like all the others and I’d hate it. No so. I actually really like it. I like it a lot. In my book, this is worth the money.

    Zach has school today so while he’s there, Ainslee and I are going to Pier 1 to buy my friend a new house warming gift.

    Have a great Thursday!

    Happy Friday, woot woot!

    If you’re like me, you’ve got a cuppa joe in your hand right now. And if you’re really like me, it’s pumpkin flavored.

    Some food for thought.

    Ain’t that the truth?

    My mom better book her plane ticket for Christmas. I keep telling her that the prices are only going to go up at this point. Hurry up Marzy!

    I didn’t believe that Zach actually took naps at school until his teacher sent me this presh pic. Now I feel stupid.

    I’ve got to buy a large utility bag for all the crap we have to lug to school. When I saw the other moms carrying one, I wondered why. Why would they need such a huge picnic basket sized bag for their preschooler? Welp, after this week, now I know. There is so much stuff these kids need and it doesn’t help that we have to take their nap mats home every day either. You should see me trying to roll Ainslee in/out, while walking with Zach, and juggling the stroller, his bag, lunch box, nap mat, etc. It’s a show. A total show. Ugh. Rant over. I’m just going to have to get this ridiculous bag.

    My friend Lori tagged me in this pic on fb. I loved my cabbage patch kid. Did you have one? I remember my mom specifically bought a blonde cpk with the name “Lisa.” I’ve got to get Ainslee one at some point.

    Tomorrow my friend Jenn and I are running a local 5K. This will my second 5K since having Ainslee. One night a few months ago, I inhaled a sleeve, yes a huge, long never-ending sleeve of oreos. It was also at 10:30 at night. And to make matters worse, I was hiding in the pantry popping them back, haha. I was so mad at myself post oreo coma, that I ended up registering to run a few 5K’s and two half marathons. That is how gross and disgusting I felt!! Want some racing motivation? Eat 106 oreos before bed. That’ll do it. #fatty

    I’ve been on the lookout for a small crossbody bag. I want something just big enough to hold my money, gloss and phone. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. After doing extensive purse research (I can’t believe I had to do any in the first place,) I found this Michael Kors Charlton crossbody bag. I’m digging it. This is exactly what I had in mind. I can always count on Zappos’ speedy delivery. This baby will be crossed over my bod by Monday! It’s so perfect for our trip to Louisville next month and Tampa in November.

    Okay, sorry to cut this short but I’m already late! Off to KISS. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!
