Christmas LOTD: In the Pink!

"At some time in our life we must learn to face crushing disappointment"--My 16yo daughter JudoQueen

Ok, so today's look was not a crushing disappointment but it wasn't what I had planned. I'm stil recovering from surgery, and it appears to have made my chronics rear their ugly heads. I slept the better part of the week and most of Christmas Eve.

My hair did not get dyed as I had planned. Afraid to leave it bleached with purple swatches, I polled the family. They all thought it looked fine. Still unsure, I knew it was do my hair, or let my husband wrap the gifts. Family won out.

I'd planned on doing something dazzling for my nails. While I think they look pretty, it's not what I planned. And they haven't been photographed...Yet? We'll see.

Sometimes, good enough really IS good enough.

  1. OMG you are truly a make up junkie, just like me. I love the Urban Decay stuff to bits!!

  2. Oh look, it's My Babysitter and her family! Hee ;) Merry Christmas, y'all!

    Someday Choreboy and I will get out of the house sans children again... we had good intentions to do so before Christmas, but it didn't quite happen :/ Oh well, in time.

  3. Hi Girlfactory! It's a newfound passion :) I have loads more UD for 2012 to show off!

    LOL Amanda, too cute ;)

    Don't feel too bad....our "childless" day was boring. I slept, hubby cleaned. Woo.

    Your babysitter will still be here in 2012 ;) You have 18 mos to enlist her services LOL.

  4. waooooo....very much inspired by you gorgeous lady !! :)...following your blog !!<3

  5. Thank you SO much Ayantika! Following back ;)

    My husband is also in IT, and my daughter wants to travel to India (well, so do I)--she's going into neuroscience and knows that India has some incredible centers there for it. So she's planning on learning Hindi (her friends at school advised her this would probably be the best overall).

    SO glad you stopped by and thank you for the lovely words :))

  6. @The Crafty Angel....sounds really nice dear :) and my husband both are in IT <3...if ur daughter need any help then plz let me know :)

    O yes, thank you very much for following my blog ! I need all your support !


  7. OMG, I love your husband's shirt!!!!! What a fun looking family!

  8. LOL yeah he and the kids got Star Wars Xmas shirts from Zazzle last year, at the last minute my son changed into just a regular SW shirt. My daughter's is the Death Star Decorated like an ornament with lights lol.

    Thanks for visiting :)

  9. i hope that you are feeling better love! great bracelet :)

  10. Thanks sweetheart! I have been lemming that bracelet ever since the promo pictures came out in the fall--but I never found it on the JC website--so I had to hit ebay LOL. It's sooo cute and the lipbalm is awesome, a nice toasty marshmallow scent!

    I normally wear another bracelet every xmas but I lost one charm and I need to lengthen it. I'll probably wind up wearing both next year LOL


  11. Wow, that is some pretty jewellery :) I like your shirt and also your family's, too. Have a great New Year (and may the Force be with you, haha!!) And your hair still looks great, I wouldn't worry about that!

  12. Yay another Star Wars fan! Thanks for the sweet words :) I LOVE my new watch! And my son was so cute and so proud to buy something nice for me with his own money.

    We love breaking out our holiday shirts! I need one of The Grinch.....

    Happy New Year dear and thanks for stopping by :)
