Blush + Bashful

Before my niece's wedding, I bought some pillow soft foam rollers and a curling iron at Target. Can you believe I didn't actually own a curling iron? I think the last time I used one was in high school. Anyway, I put rollers in Little Bit's hair the night before the wedding. Not even five minutes later, she ripped all of them out and threw them on the floor. She was not a happy camper. Since it was late, I gave up and put her to bed. While the kids were asleep, I tested out the new curling iron on myself.

I bought the Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Curling Wand.
$23.99 at Target

Boy, oh boy, did I have fun!

As my hair got bigger and bigger, all I could think about was Shelby in Steel Magnolias.

M'Lynn: Her colors are pink and pink.

Shelby: My colors are blush and bashful.
I have chosen two shades of pink, one is much deeper than the other.

Today, I'm linking up with Life Rearranged for Insta-Friday.

It's a nice day for a white wedding

My niece, who is one of my favorite people in the world, got married this past weekend. My beautiful children were the ring bearer and flower girl. It was a great day for our family as we welcomed a new member into the clan. The happy couple is currently vacationing in New York. I'm only a little bit jealous.

What I'll Be Watching This Fall, 2012

It's that time of year again. Fall tv shows are premiering with a vengeance. With a job, lots of overtime and two kids playing soccer, I might have to get creative with how and when I watch tv this fall. I usually wait until the kids are asleep before I watch one or two shows. Lately, as soon as the kids go to bed, I'm right behind them. This is why I only added a few new shows. Besides, I know some of these will undoubtedly get cancelled. Anyway, here's my tentative fall tv lineup.

2 Broke Girls
Mike & Molly
Hawaii Five-0

Go On*
New Girl
Hart of Dixie
Private Practice

X Factor
Chicago Fire*
Modern Family

X Factor
Grey's Anatomy
The Vampire Diaries

Blue Bloods

Sunday {the new Thursday}
The Mentalist
Once Upon a Time

*shows marked with an asterisk are new

I'm most excited about the return of New Girl, Revenge, Dexter, Homeland, and Once Upon a Time.

I'm running thin on time and patience, so I won't hesitate to cut a show if it starts to bore me.

What will you be watching?
