 This is a delicious soup I found at the grocery store:
This is an excellent potato soup - very handy to keep in the pantry for chilly nights.  We could get our first snow this weekend & the grandchildren are over the moon since they will be here.

I am enjoying my new haircut - I really needed the layers - it helps add body to fine hair.  This is a little flatter than I normally wear as it was raining & freezing cold.
And yes, this is really my hair color - thanks to mother nature (it was darker before breast cancer).  But I was born with this color so I am happy with it.  I really need to use a molding wax but not sure which to get - I have this:
 It smells heavenly! But I tend to be heavy-handed with hair products so I guess I need practice.
Let me know your favorites - I have Ulta & Sephora items in a cart ready to go so there is room to add more products!!!

I discovered Paul Mitchell prods many years ago & have a stockpile that I am going to drag out and try again.  I think the sculpting glaze is going to do a good job for holding the style on top.

I have used Dr. Dennis Gross products over the years & like them.  So I had to try this new product:
This is Ferulic Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Overnight Serum - I have been wanting to use a nightly serum so I am excited to try this.  I use retinol esp in the summer but I wanted something milder for the winter.

 This week is partly teacher work days so I  will be keeping the grands - I think we will make cupcakes and I have ordered new coloring books to keep them busy:

 My stars  ~  they are growing so fast !!!!!!!!!

I found these orchid color Christmas balls which will be lovely for this year's tree:
Vickerman 34785 - 2.75" Orchid Pink Matte Ball Christmas Tree Ornament (12 pack) (N590709DMV)
I was lucky my DIL wanted my cream & burgundy color scheme from this year - I am drawn to pink and might as well not deny what I really enjoy.

                                          Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!
