I hope you were adored & pampered on Mother's Day - my beloved grands made "cards":
I am going to arrange these in a frame.

I wore purple (and "sparkles") since it's GD's favorite color.
 Grandchildren are so precious - why do they have to grow up??

This Ellen Tracy Layered Eyeshadow Brick is in 'Dusk' and I especially love it because it was only $3 at a discount dept store!

I won't use all the colors but that's ok at this price!

While out & about, I had to stop at some outlets for a 'few' things: (no this isn't all - I'll add them next time)

Mr. For 42 Years has to go for a liver biopsy this week so I am making some of his favorite foods.
It's the least I can do -  caring for me after 4 brain surgeries, he so deserves to be spoiled!
He loves brownies!  And since these delicious ice creams were on sale I stocked up on these:
I could eat Belgian chocolate every day - oh wait - this was about him???!!!!!!!!

 My bunny came back!
Be well everyone.

This is a brand that I have not seen since I was a teenager: Yardley
This perfumed talc powder is Lily of the Valley and I found it at a discount dept store for $5.99!
I keep all of these open so they scent the dressing room & walk-in closet. It was so popular in my younger days!

This new serum form of self-tanning works great! It's L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Serum.
I have just started using it and it goes on quickly without a sticky residue.  Definitely wash your hands right away or use those disposable dr. gloves - I keep boxes of those in the kitchen and my dressing room.  It tried quickly and supposedly lasts for over a week - we'll see, as I exfoliate frequently.

This little bottle of nail polish is cute and is supposed to have fragrance:
I don't' smell a strong "Autumn Spice" but it is a cute marketing idea!  This included with some additional beauty items would make a nice gift basket.

I am so glad stripes are still popular - I have a ton of them!
I love the ones I have gotten from Lands End and Ralph Lauren - they 100% cotton and so comfortable with the summer weather.  Enduring the heat here in the South is a full-time job!

There has been so much rain but the azaleas love it!
There was a little bunny hopping around there a few days ago but have since not seen him.

I thought it was going to be a  Simple Friday - hair & nail salon - groceries, so I just needed a touch of mascara, lip gloss & plum eye shadow - but the Dr calls and tells me it is time for some vaccines - unfortunately my whining & complaining did not allow me to escape!  So I will schedule this for  publication and then off to bed - my arm hurts & I have a mild fever - hopefully something entertaining will be on tv!  At least the new InStyle is here!

I can't get over how simple oven fajitas were to make! My gang loves this - just throw everything into a baking pan and let it cook! I really like my chicken done so I probably over cook it to some degree but since I put everything on my fajitas they will be moist. I find it simple to buy a packet of seasoning but add more things like cumin, cayenne and seasoned salt. Before & After:
I line the pan for easy clean up!

It is time to be very mindful about using sunscreen and I am currently using this one by Neutrogena:
This is a broad sprectrum SPF 70 - it is sheer & quickly absorbs.  I also use this when I go to the nail salon because I think it adds some protection under the curing lamp - you can't take too many precautions.

This is short but I wanted to say 'hello' and relay that my friend's grandson is coming along nicely after the heart surgery.  Hopefully he will be home this week. Thank you for the kind thoughts.

I have some new pretties to show you next time!  It has rained all week so taking good pictures has been a challenge but it has been great for the azaleas!

Remember: Grandmothers are mothers without boundaries!
