Free for Haul Friday

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul: My Origins’ order came last Friday, so technically not this week but I forgot to mention it!
  • Weekend plans: Another quiet weekend here at HQ :)  We’re going to get some sushi to-go tonight and watch a movie or comedy special. Low-key Valentine’s Day for us!
  • Favorite comfort food?:  Apple crisp a la mode

Office buddy/foot warmer.  Sometimes he sits between my legs and puts his head in my lap (makes it hard to work…).

Morning snuggle time, which really just means my lap is Mellan’s throne. This is his, “Go back to petting me” face.

Flashback Friday edition… even when he was a pup (16 weeks), he had quite the crinkled brow!

  • Haul:  I bought the other Dior spring eyeshadow palette online yesterday, and it might even arrive today, which would be awesome!
  • Weekend plans: Brunch, then football on Sunday. I’d like to catch-up on my backlog of email and comments, too!
  • Favorite piece of jewelry you own?:  My wedding ring/engagement ring; it’s the only piece I wear 24/7, but I feel like that’s too obvious, so aside from that, the earrings my mom gave me for Christmas that are in the design of the Temptalia logo. She worked with my favorite Etsy jewelry designer, and I just love the way they look.

  • Haul:  I bought and received a new Dior Fusion eyeshadow from Sephora yesterday, and I’m hoping the ones I ordered from Nordstrom arrive today!
  • Weekend plans:  I have so many photos to edit and products to review and hope to get through them this weekend! Cross your fingers for me!
  • Do you save birthday cards (or holiday cards, get well cards, etc.)?:  Only occasionally–if someone sends one with a really heartfelt message that’s personalized from them to me, then I will keep it, but otherwise I recycle.

Still smashing in his bow tie!  He also looks SO trim in this photo!
