Celebrating Mom & Lipstick Reviews.

On Saturday we headed over to my parents to celebrate my moms birthday.

Before I get started i'm in DESPERATE need of a great matte red lipstick,
anyone have any suggestions?!
I'm not a big fan of shiny/gloss so I definitely want a matte, and one that actually STAYS on!
Help?

Now back to todays post...

I'm BEYOND thankful that Kyle and I both have awesome families.
Of course there are always some crazies mixed in with the extended members,
but we both have been SO blessed with pretty amazing immediate families that we LOVE spending time with.

What better way to get the day started than with a family selfie?!
haha my sister got herself a "selfie stick" and gosh they are so much fun!!
A little embarrassing sure...but so fun! 


Kyle and Jonathan KNOW that there will always be some
sort of photo shoot when we all get together.
And although they CANT stand photos they are pretty good sports about it.
Actually, theres always a lot of complaining, but Tara and I always seem to get the job done.

Once my mamaw got to the house we all piled up [in 2 cars] and headed to Jimmy Changas!
A super yummy mexican restaurant that has THE best queso ever.
Y'all...I have been SO good on eating healthier lately..
but I totally caved. I can't even lie to y'all because I caved BAD.
so.much.queso. was eaten.
But hey, I never said I was taking it completely out of my diet...
Oh well, It was thoroughly enjoyed.

After our late lunch we headed back to the house for some dessert and chill time.
Then we all decided to go see American Sniper.
WOW talk about an incredible movie, it's also extremely heartbreaking...
But I would still definitely suggest it to anyone.
Major props to all of you wives/families of soldiers,
I honestly can't even imagine what you go through on a day to day basis.
I'll definitely be keeping all of our soldiers and their families in my prayers more regularly.

Happy Monday and Happy MLK Day!

  1. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time getting together for your mom's birthday! Happy belated birthday to her! We saw American Sniper on Saturday and it was such an amazing movie. The ending broke my heart though.

  2. Looks like such a fun weekend!! I have a whole post about red lipstick (here: http://www.hodgespodges.com/2014/12/holiday-red-lip-drugstore-edition.html) but I really love the elf lip crayon ($3) and the revlon matte balm in standout! The maybelline creamy mattes are really good too! All of those are fairly comfortable on the lips and stay in place!

  3. Try Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Velvet. It goes on liquid and dries matte! Check them out!
