I met with my Mary Kay girl yesterday afternoon to finalize my order. Well, I got quite a bundle of items (for a fantastic price I must say). I am very excited because I have been searching for about a year for a good skincare system that had proven results and didn't put me in the poor house to pay for. I have used Mary Kay products for years off and on because every consultant I had would move away or quit doing it or something like that. I know the products are good and I always go back to them. I used to use Clinique, but I think my skin got too used to it or I outgrew it because it started to make me break out and I have never broken out ever in my life! I switched to Neutrogena products because they are cheap and since I started breaking out, so I thought it would be good until I found something better. I have liked them pretty well, but I don't feel like I am doing anything to improve my skin with them. I feel like I am just keeping my skin clean, but not really helping my skin for future years. I am excited to say I got the whole MK Time Wise skin care system. Here is my new routine:
- Time Wise cleanser in the morning and night
- Day Serum with SPF in the morning
- Night Serum with vitamins to improve and prevent fine lines
- Firming Eye Cream to improve and prevent fine lines
- Microdermabrasion System to be used about twice a week. This stuff is fantastic because it is so gritty that it gets the dead skin cells off and your face immediately looks for radiant and refreshed. I tried it and could see results for days!
- Satin Lips System which I plan to do on the days I do the Microdermabrasion. I also will do my Satin Hands on those days too, but I already own that.
- Eye Primer to keep my shadow on all day! I have heard raves about this from my co-worker. I put this on after all this other stuff, but before my makeup
- Time Wise Lip Primer for the same purpose, plus it is supposed to keep your lips from getting those fine lines on and around them.
- Ultimate Mascara which is my hands down favorite mascara ever and I was almost out of my Loreal kind.
I got everything other than my skincare 50% off and I got a big discount, which will hopefully go up in a couple of days and I can get a refund! I am waiting on a couple of people to finalize their orders. I plan to replace all of my makeup with MK as it runs out now that I have a consultant that isn't going anywhere. If y'all haven't ever tried MK products, I can promise you will not be disappointed. The price point is great, customer service is top notch, and the products last forever. A little goes such a long way with MK!

So let's add it up! Drumroll please...the grand total for this shopping spree was approximately $203! I can't even believe how many items I got for that! Run don't walk over to your closest thrift shop, Goodwill, consignment shop, outlet mall, or even hop over to ebay because there is no reason to pay a lot to look good when you can get great pieces at a fraction of the price!

I have picked a photographer! A friend of mine who is in school for photography has started her own business. Her photos are gorgeous! She has a real talent and I am so excited to have someone I know do the pictures. I haven't booked or anything since we don't have a date, but I am planning on using her and she knows it. Here is her website.
I have also made a wedding website. It's in the early stages, but I have some preliminary stuff on there for people to look at like my attendants, our story, about us, and things like that. I might end up making one through a different server when this is all said and done because you only have certain backgrounds you can choose through this one and none of them really go with my wedding theme. Anyway, for now this is it and I am excited!
I received my "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" cards in the mail this week and I am so excited. I know it is early, but I am probably going to send them out in a couple of weeks. I have already told all of my girls that I want them in the wedding and what I want them to be (bridesmaid, maid of honor, etc) but I want to officially ask them with these cards. I will do a whole post devoted to them because they are spectacular and the seller on etsy that I got them from it so talented. Look for that post soon!
Have a fantastic day!

Saturday, I cooked a yummy dinner for Thomas and we relaxed at my house and watched t.v. I never have big plans for the Fourth because my mother always goes to Tennessee to see Nanny. Thomas' parents usually go to some friend's houses and all of our friends aren't much for the holiday. Thomas and I decided that when we get married we will start our own yearly tradition of having a big cookout at our house for all of our friends and family on the Fourth. How fun will that be!
Sunday, I hung out with Thomas and went swimming with Ashton in the afternoon. All in all it was a great weekend!

Jennifer's Mushroom Chicken
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Container of Sour Cream - I don't remember how many ounces in the package, but it's not the real little one and it's not the huge one. It's the normal middle sized one. Sorry, I don't have a container in front of me
1 Package Dry Onion Soup Mix
Chicken Breasts - You can put however many you want, I do 2-3 for the amount of sauce because I like to eat it over noodles like a pasta. If you want it more like a gravy, add more chicken breasts. ]
Combine soup, sour cream, and dry onion soup mix in slow cooker and stir until blended. Add in chicken breasts. Set your slow cooker to LOW and cook for 8 hours (or until you get home from work :) When I get home from work I cook my egg noodles on the stove and then serve the chicken and sauce over them. It makes it like a pasta dish. You could also serve it over rice if you like that better. This is such an easy delicious recipe! It's also easy to double, just remember to cook it a little longer.
In other news, I have tomorrow off work! Ashton is not scheduled to work at the hospital, but our guys are working. What's a girl to do but have some quality girl time! We are going to spend the night together tonight at my house tonight because we are leaving tomorrow morning to drive to Jekyll Island and go to Summer Waves! Summer Waves is a water park on the island. It's not going to make the Travel Channel anytime soon, but it is very fun to go to and it the best thing near us, short of driving to Atlanta or Orlando (4 hours away). I haven't been to Summer Waves in a couple of years, so I am looking forward to going. I used to spend so many weekends there in the summers when I was a little girl. I have grown up going here, so it is nostalgic to me! A lot of our family traditions have taken place on Jekyll! I just love this island!

Me and Lucky in front of the fantastic water slide they had for the kids. They also had a huge moon bounce, nature walks, and tours of Fort Pulaski (where we had the picnic).My mama, me, and LuckyEating lunch catered by Ken and Candi's BBQ. If anyone is going to Savannah and will be on the Southside (where the malls are), go get some! It is very good! I had a chance to snap a couple cute pictures of my furbaby!Saturday Thomas and I ran errands and I wore my Lilly skort (option #1). I don't want to bore you with the rest of weekend and week. I have been so busy at work. Not to mention, someone told me they may be monitoring blogger now. Everything I have touched this week at work has turned into a huge problem because of our different systems conversions over the years and now our IT people will have to help to figure out how to fix the like 9 million error messages that have popped up this week. Thank goodness it is a short week! I am ready for the weekend! I will tell y'all tomorrow about my big(ish) plans for Friday and about today's lunch experience! I just don't want to pack everything into one post!
