I've moved my blog over here thenelsonnook7.blogspot.com
Please follow the link ! Thanks you !
Happy Friday ! I'm linking up with fabulous bloggers to share my favorites this week.
There's something sweet about having pretty flowers out on our front porch.
These pretties are in full bloom.
I've been watching the super cute boy every day while his mama works.
There's nothing better than having grandkids and getting to spend so much time with them.
This face cracks me up.
I'm sure he's thinking "my grandma has taken over 50 photos of me today and I wish she was done so that I can crawl around on the floor"
I picked this BB Cream up at Target a few weeks ago.
I wasn't sure that I cared for it.
Reason 1..... it goes on with what seems little coverage.
Reason2..... I need more coverage than what it offers.
But after wearing it now two days in a row and actually looking in natural light it really does give my face an even skin tone. Blurrs a few blemishes and my skin seems like it has a bit of a dewey look. I typically wear a foundation and then go over my face with a powder.
With this BB Cream I haven't been wearing a powder after I apply the cream.
I think this is turning out to be better than I thought.
Have you tried Lipsense ?
It's all the rave and well worth the mention.
I tried it for the first time a month ago and wasn't sure if I'd like it.
It's a little pricey.
I was shocked when I paid over 55.00 for a set,that included a color, Oops (to remove the color) and a lipgloss. It's sold in three's.
But of course anything new takes time getting use to right???
Fabulous stuff especially if your a coffee drinker like me.
I swear if I apply three coats of the color and then apply the gloss I can drink 3 cups of coffee and not have to reapply color until late afternoon.
Great stuff, now go buy some !!!
Spending the week watching this little guy while his mama worked was beyond the best ever.
He's such a sweetie and is easy going.
I love you to the moon and back Ameer Alex.
I thought it would be fun to sit here at the computer this Tuesday Morning and fill ya in on the latest happenings in my life.
It's never a dull moment in the Nelson Family.
Here's the scoop.
These two are getting married in September.
It's getting closer and we are kicking everything into full gear.
Invitations ordered and arrived and going out in the mail this weekend.
I am going out this weekend to look at dresses for myself.
I wasn't; t completely sold on wither of the dresses I tried on last week at Von Maur.
This son of ours is graduating from UNL on August 12th.
I am so incredibly proud.
He was not only a college student studying journalism but also a college athlete.
He played football for the Nebraska Cornhuskers for the past 5 years.
Lots of things to be proud of but most of all getting his college diploma.
I'm going back to school ! Full time too.
I decided to quit my job and go back to college.
I've wanted to for awhile and one day I just said forget it and went and enrolled.
I start the first week of September.
I'll keep you updated on how it goes.
Now onto a much lighter note.
I'm dieting YET again :)
I am determined to lose 15 pounds before my daughters wedding in September.
I'm eating cream of wheat three times a day with only 1% mile and no sugar.
You ask why cream of wheat.
1.... because I love it.
2.... because I've done the cream of wheat diet and it works.
However, this time
I have decided to give myself a treat twice a day and these are the BEST ever.
DIPPERS :) They are only 60 calories a pack.
Keep them in the freezer and open for a great little treat.
Happy Tuesday !
Happy Monday :)
Here's a few randoms from our weekend.
My niece recently got an iPhone and she's been face timing me, several times a day. Secretly, it makes my day. She is way to cute. The excitement of getting a new phone.
Friday I decided to part my hair on the opposite side I normally part it on and OMG, it's a lot darker. I've been only highlighting the very top part of my hair as I'm trying to get back more of my natural color.
Cute top that I picked up at Marshall's last week and it's only 16.99.
Cute summer top.
Friday night I went to my first Pink Zebra Party.
A co-worker hosted the party at her home. If your not familiar with Pink Zebra google it.
It's similar to Scentsy.
Smell goods for your home.
I chose Birthday Cake and Strawberry. The containers above are how the sprinkles are packaged.
I also bought cute little glass jars to fill the sprinkles with.
I'll share later what I think of the product once it comes in and I have time to use it.
Our daughter Tia is getting married in a few months and so Saturday evening she and I headed to Von Maur and I tried on a few formal dresses.
I love love this one here. I sized up because they didn't have a size 6 the size I usually wear.
And this dress here is a deep navy blue (looks black) and I loved how form fitting it was. The hubs saw me in this dress and loved how it looks on me.
I am still debating however these two dresses are similar to what I want to wear on the very special day.
I took off my artificial nails last week and wow the damage that was left behind is horrific.
I've been using OPI Natural Nail Strengthener and I've seen a little difference THANK GOODNESS !
This pretty nail color is perfect for summer.
OPI ElePhantastic Pink!
A few weeks ago Tia and I met my mom, sister and niece in Des Moines for lunch.
Our favorite place to eat is The Cheese Cake Factory.
It has everything to please even the pickiest eaters.
My silly niece was getting bored so she got a little creative.
The joys of taking a 9 year old to lunch.
My sister and my beautiful daughter Tia.
My favorite drink is The Georgia Peach.
I order this drink every time I get the chance.
My sister and I live a few hours from each other.
Quick unexpected trips to Des Moines to meet for lunch is always so much fun.
Laughing and eating and just relaxing is always fun with her.
On a serious note.........I've done everything I can possibly do to keep my blog from being hacked.
I was on blogger and somehow I was hacked and my privacy was completely violated.
I tried Wordpress but truthfully I found it very challenging to figure out.
I decided to try weebly.
I love the ease and simplicity of using this site for my blog.
I've been following along with some of my favorite blogs for months and couldn't wait to get back to blogging myself.
Truthfully I love blogging more than Facebook or Instagram.
This is my happy place.
I get to share my favorite photos, products that I love and even my bargain finds.
We had a family get together over at Carter Lake in Iowa.
My sister-in-law has thrown together the last two years of 4th of July Parties.
Lots of food, family and friends.
Here's my sweet little grandson and his mama.
Little Ameer Alex.
My sister-in-law and Aunt Patty.
These two ladies did an amazing job with decorating and getting the food ready for us to enjoy.
I had my good camera with me so I decided to take a few photos of people that I only get to see once a year.
How cute is the mama and her three kids ???
Hoping you enjoyed your 4th :)
And Happy Friday !
