Things I'm Digging This Week

This past week has been a rough one. My entire family was sick with a really bad head/chest cold AND my youngest son has been cutting two teeth. Needless to say, I've felt like a zombie since last Saturday. And I don't mean like a cheetah-zombie like the ones in the "Dawn of the Dead" revamp; I've been more like a moldering zombie from The Walking Dead that has lost its legs. Now that I'm feeling better and can no longer be ranked among the mouth breathers, I'd like to share what I've been digging lately:

-My new owl coffee mug! I absolutely love owls and penguins and today I got an owl mug from Mardel. I have a matching one in blue. "Quiet time" at my house is the short period of time when my youngest child naps and my eldest child lays down and watches a movie in his room. During quiet time I either doze in my room or relish the silence by enjoying a cup of coffee in my owl mug and either reading or, like I did today, playing a game. 

-Que Bella face masks. I tried the dead sea mineral mask on Thursday when my husband watched the kids and I took a relaxing bath. I had to make sure the kids were occupied because if they just so happened to bust in on me in the bathroom (which happens often) they'd see someone resembling Leatherface in the tub. Not something anyone wants to see, let alone a four year old. The mask was nice, though the "rejuvenating" tingles felt like I was on the cusp of a chemical burn. So, if you have sensitive skin like me leave the mask on for the minimum suggested time. 

- Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre!!!! *somewhere HIM plays and a deathmetal angel gets its fiery wings every time someone says the entire name of this game* I am so excited to play this game. We got it at our local game store today and I'm psyched. I watched the Tabletop episode for this game a few weeks ago and knew that my husband, friends, and I had to play it. Check out the episode to see if it's something you'd be interested in, but warning! this game is *not* for children. At all. Not even a little. 

My May ipsy glam bag! After feeling/looking like a trog all week it was nice to get something in the mail that made me feel pretty. This month I got a 24/7 glide on lip pencil w/lip gloss sample from Urban Decay, a Chella eyebrow pencil, a detoxifying facial cleanser from Peter Lamas, a tapered blending brush (#205) from Luxie Beauty, and a tinted moisturizer with SPF from CoTZ. 

That's all for this week, folks. Time to go make dinner for my guys and *hopefully* have time to check out my new game after the kiddos go to sleep.
