Birchbox Love

Have you heard about Birchbox?

It rocks my world.  I talked my brother-in-law into getting it for a Christmas gift for my sister last year.  I saw her first box and that was it for me.  

Basically it's a box of fun that comes in the mail.  Once a month, and it only costs ten dollars.  And you can customize your preferences so that you get perfect, awesome, totally use-able surprises every month!

Like, for example, my August box:


And in case you were super curious for details, I got:

Schick razor (with coups for refills)
Pixi Beauty - Lid Last Shadow Pen (which retails for $18 and I got a full size one!!)
Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curls
Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover
Juicy Couture Viva La Juice La Fleur - smells amazing!

I've seen other people post about their boxes, and I always love to see, so I thought I would share mine too!

Summer Oasis

It has been hot here.  More hot than my delicate constitution can handle.

So my sister and I managed to snag a group pass to the local pool for us and the little ladies. 

Did the teenage boy who sold it to us think that we were a couple?


Anyway, every single afternoon, once the grumpy girls get their beauty sleep, we pack up our bags, slip into swimsuits and head to Heaven.  

Also known as 'da poo'.  Lulu likes to "swim in DA poo."

Scarlett is brave enough to go down the slide...

Lulu just sits on the outside!

I'm so thankful for this place.  I don't think we could have survived the summer without it!
