Second, Happy Belated Thanksgiving! We had a very laid back Thanksgiving in Kansas. My mom came up for a visit and we just hung around the house, shared viruses, and did some shopping. Normal family holiday stuff. Here are some highlights:
We visited Legoland in Kansas City and we all had such a fun time!
My mom and the boys with her pink and purple creation
At Crown Center with larger than life Lego creations.
Just before Thanksgiving I received my first Birchbox. I was so excited to get it! If you're not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription to beauty products. It's $10 a month and you can cancel at any time. This was my first box and I love it. If you're interested in joining, please use the link below so I can get points:
My box had a SOYJOY bar, full size mascara (which I really liked), nail polish, hair powder (also really liked), and a perfume sample. It's a fun surprise in the mail and there's also a men's version for the metro man in your life.
One last thing - I finished up two books recently that I would recommend. I read Emily Giffin's Where We Belong (Something Borrowed author). I don't normally read chick lit, but this one held my attention and there was a plot twist I didn't see coming. It was cute and very easy reading. I also finished Bossy Pants by Tina Fey. I loved this book! I was laughing out loud the entire time. I just picked up Gone Girl and Safe Haven (have to read them before the movies come out!).
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
