Maya Angelou wrote a poem to celebrate AARPa€™s (American Association of Retired People) 50th anniversary. I cana€™t say I love to cook the way some gourmet cooks relish a whole day or weekend spent in the kitchen. I love kitchens, kitchen gadgets, electrical appliances, full refrigerators, cooking pots and pretty dishes. In the spring of 2006 we bought an RV, emptied the house, put it up for sale and hit the road.
I plan to talk about our RV lifestyle and the places wea€™ve seen in this blog on a regular basis.
Each challenge card has a different way of setting up the cars and trucks so each game is a new challenge. The Husband’s Secret is an exciting new book from Liane Moriarty, author of What Alice Forgot (which I LOVED). Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all—she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. Alright, but anyway, I just wanted to stop by this old dinosaur to let anyone out there who still may be following me know that I have started a new blog!
I’m super excited about this endeavor and have been working on it for the better part of six months now. Let me tell you this has certainly not been an easy decision by any stretch of the imagination. I've really been thinking hard about this for the past few weeks, but if I'm really honest with myself I've probably been toying around with the idea for much longer than that.
I certainly don’t want to say that this is the end of my relationship with blogging for forever, but I know that either way The Newlywed Notebook will be done. I also just want to say that there are so many of you out there that I don’t just consider readers, but friends.
I know I just recently did a fertility update, but a lot has happened since that post and I feel like since we are at a point where we finally have some answers, another update is probably appropriate. I will try to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to share the big revelations we've received lately in the fertility department.
Our appointment started with the ultrasound tech taking a bunch of different photos for Dr.
I will try to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to share the big revelations we’ve received lately in the fertility department. Next my doctor went on to explain to me what the big black blob on the ultrasound screen was that I had kept seeing. If you've been married for a few months (heck, a few days) you've probably been in a situation or conversation when you find yourself thinking your husband is wrong. As a wife of almost 3 years now, I can definitely admit I've found myself in this situation a few hundred dozen times. As a wife of almost 3 years now, I can definitely admit I’ve found myself in this situation a few hundred dozen times. This is always the first question I ask myself when I find myself thinking my husband is wrong. However, I think the important thing about this one is to remember to correct in a way that does not embarrass your partner in front of others and is not done in a way that makes him feel stupid. And in this instance there is usually a definite point in the conversation where I begin to realize that I am the one who either has the incorrect information or behaved incorrectly, and let me tell ya that realization digs in like a knife.
So the next time you find yourself on opposite sides of the proverbial fence as your husband, try quickly running through these three questions in your head first before setting up camp there.
And if you are interested in learning more about marital or pre-marital coaching, it would be my honor to recommend to you Valerie Kolick, Life and Relationship Success Coach. And the coolest thing is that since a successful marriage is the #1 predictor of overall life satisfaction and well-being, Valerie is able to help you make positive changes not just in your marriage, but in your career, parenting abilities, and other relationships as well.
So over the years I've had to get creative with different ways to get some color into my completion during the warmer months.
So over the years I’ve had to get creative with different ways to get some color into my completion during the warmer months. I had never tried any products from the line thebalm before, but I had heard great things about it from multiple people, so it was on my list for the future. This is however, until a few weeks ago when I saw that thebalm was listed as one of the sale products on HauteLook for the week — I was pumped! I will post a photo over on my Instagram this week on a day I do a full face of makeup to show you how it looks all together, but it honestly gives you that perfect, beautiful summery look! I don’t typically do a ton of product reviews on here, but I’ve just been so incredibly impressed with thebalm line and specifically these few products, so I thought I would share!
This month my husband and I will have been married for three years, and together for over 10.
I think we as women find ourselves waiting on our men much more often than they find themselves waiting on us. Over the past year or so I've found myself becoming a bit more patient with my husband, so I thought I would share a few of these "revelations" here. This past weekend was pretty much the only weekend Eric and I were home this month, so we decided to make the most of it and attempt way too much in the DIY department. We started by finally replacing and updating the ugly lamp post we have smack dab in front of our house. At that point all we had left to do was purchase a new lantern for the top and switch out the old with the new. Next, we decided to take out our most physically exhausting DIY project to date — redoing the plant beds all around our house.
The craziest thing is we still have a ton of plants left, but at least now they look a bit more purposeful. We went back and forth quite a bit between getting actual mulch or something a bit more unique. Well, that appointment has since come and gone, and a lot has changed for us in just one short month. In case you missed it, last week I shared part 1 of "A Beginner's Guide to Marriage-ing." If you missed it, be sure to read that one first before continuing on to part 2. I want to thank all for your sweet comments, tweets, and shares on the first post in this two-part series. Okay, this one might sound crazy to you wives out there, but this has been a bit of a relationship revelation for me.
Men process information so much differently than women do, and a lot of times when we converse with them we are assuming or expecting them to communicate like a woman. I want to thank you all for your sweet comments, tweets, and shares on the first post in this two-part series.
I won’t go into this much since I wrote an entire blog post about creating (and living on) a budget a few weeks back, but I do just want to remind you how important it is to have a plan to manage your money set up early on in your marriage. When you get married, you will more than likely find shared interests and things you enjoy doing together. When you get married, you must be completely prepared to leave your parents and have your husband become your immediate family. When you get married, you must be completely prepared to leave your parents and have your husband become your immediate family.
Once you are married (or even before), talk about how you would like to run your new household together. For things we both do like laundry and dishes, we have a set schedule of when these things need to happen so we both know exactly what is going on and can share the responsibility. Our goal was to see the country in no big hurry and hopefully, meet some interesting people along the way. No features yet on him but, if you'd like to see the big salmon he caught in Alaska, go here. Join in the conversation by commenting on posts or sending me a email at margot.peck at gmail dot com.
I love the smell of bread baking, homemade soup on the back burner, and a fruit pie cooling by the window. I find that if I have something I cana€™t quite figure out, if I sit down for a bit and focus on my knitting, the other side of my brain seems to come up with a solution. We loved camping so much that we figured out a way to pack all our camping gear, tent, sleeping bags, cooking utensils and so forth in a duffle bag.
Somehow it wasna€™t quite so easy to get down on the ground and get into that sleeping bag. We didna€™t think anyone could call themselves real campers unless they were down on the cold ground.
Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. I am SUPER excited about this space, and about the opportunity to start blogging again…I have really missed it you guys. This beautiful blog design was completed by the talented Elizabeth of Chantilly Designs and the photos were taken by my wonderful Daddio.
I’ve been keeping up with many of you who blog from the shadows and am really looking forward to connecting with you again! So for those of you who are still interested in keeping tabs on me, especially with all the fertility stuff, know that I will be posting LOTS of stuff on my social media channels, so PLEASE stay connected with me over on Instagram and Facebook – those are the two I use the most.
If you aren't into these posts I COMPLETELY understand and am in no way offended of you decide to just pass on this week's post. So, a few weeks ago I went in for a big ultrasound appointment where they did an in-depth look and completed a few tests in order to try and figure out what is really going on. As the tech was doing the ultrasound, I had a feeling it wasn’t a good thing, and when my doctor came in he was able to confirm that it was an adenomyoma. I’m working hard at remaining positive and hopeful, but some days I definitely do better at it than others. It may be that he's wrong about specific information, the way he handled a certain situation, or that he's just wrong in general. Scroll down to download your own FREE copy of her ebook: How to Make Your Marriage Extraordinary! And unfortunately, in some of those instances I’ve definitely handled things incorrectly. But if it’s just something that drives me nuts from time to time or rubs me the wrong way here or there, I try to just take a deep breath and let it go. So for example, if he has the incorrect time for a dinner date with friends or think I’m picking the dog up from the groomers when I had asked him to, I make sure to communicate that information. It’s important to communicate your knowledge in these situations but there is definitely a right and and a wrong way to do it. I wont lie, sometimes I find myself trying to back-talk my out of that situation like a maniac, and sometimes I decide to just keep going with it and see how far I can get until I finally get called out. Valerie is a rockstar at helping smart and dedicated couples quickly break through challenges and providing the tools and guidance to create an extraordinary relationship together. You can check out what some of Valerie’s past clients are saying about their experience with her by checking out here testimonials page. So I bet you are now wondering how to get in contact with this awesome lady and learn even more about what she does, right? Do you have any tips for diffusing the tension or communicating well in that type of situation? I've tried everything from spray tanning to tanning lotions to pretty much every kind of bronzing powder that's out there.
However, once I started trying to track it down when I was out and about I quickly discovered that it was a tough line of products to get your hands on.
Their products are a bit pricey, even for high end makeup, so when I saw everything was 60% off I jumped at the chance to put in an order of products I really had had my eye on.


You definitely want to use a super light hand with this stuff as a little goes a long way, but I love how silky and easy to work with this is, that the color is not at all overwhelming or muddy-looking on my pale skin, and that it has great staying powder. The Betty-Lou manizer bronzing powder from thebalm is hands down the BEST bronzer I’ve EVER used! I know it may sound like a lot of makeup, but if you use a light hand and blend it together well, it looks super natural — just like your skin, only better. Let me know what ones you’ve enjoyed, as I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for more to try! During that time I have found myself waiting on my husband in many different phases of our lives.
Unless we are getting ready for date night - then if you are anything like me, all bets are off.
So whether you are waiting to actually find your spouse, waiting for them to finally "make a move," or just waiting for them to be ready to move on to the next big thing, here a few thoughts you may want to keep in mind the next time you find yourself getting frustrated with your partner.
Unless we are getting ready for date night – then if you are anything like me, all bets are off. I know my husband feels a lot of pressure when it comes to making decisions that have the potential to change our lives like when to get married, when to purchase a home, when to have children, when is a good time to save vs.
It can be difficult for everyone, myself included, but sometimes change can be even more difficult for our guys for a myriad of reasons. Although at the end of it all both Eric and I wanted to crawl into bed and sleep for a week, we are so happy we got it all done and super happy with the results. In a perfect world I would get rid of the thing entirely, but that seemed like a lot more time and effort than the outcome would be worth. We decided to go with the Allen & Roth Castine Post Light from Lowes as it matched the new lights we just installed on the garage and front of the house. I don't think the people before us cared much about what the outside of their house looked like, because when we moved in the yard was just completely overgrown with plants. The front of our house is a bit bare (I want to be able to plant some flowers) but the sides and back of our house are still pretty lush. We took a ton of dirts out of the beds to make room for some hardwood chips, moved a few more plants around to make everything look uniform, and regraded all the bed away from the house. Muscles I didn’t even know I had are screaming at me to sit down and not move for a week. We decided to go with the Allen & Roth Castine Post Light from Lowes as it matched the new lights we just installed on the garage and front of the house. I don’t think the people before us cared much about what the outside of their house looked like, because when we moved in the yard was just completely overgrown with plants. I refused to get brown mulch because I thought it would look too much like just dirt in our small beds.
I really love how the color is very natural but the texture adds a fun element to our yard. If you want to see some photos of how the back of the yard turned out, I will post some more photos of our yard over on my Instagram and Facebook channels.
I mentioned that we would soon be going in for our very first fertility appointment with a new doctor. I’m happy to report that our first appointment went just as good as it possibly could considering it was a fertility appointment, and we finally have a plan.
I’m sure if you asked him directly my husband Eric would tell you that he was just fine, but his face told a very different story. K returned he was laden with a stack of textbooks, and proceeded to show me in pictures (which I weirdly loved) exactly what was going on.
A bit of a scary plan but nevertheless it’s a plan I’m very glad to have and I’m feeling grateful to be heading in a direction of healing (getting rid of all the pain I’m normally in is a huge bonus) and hope. After talking with different family members about all this over the past few weeks, I was shocked to discover that Dr.
I will put out another update in a few months after I’ve had surgery to give you an update.
This topic probably deserves a post entirely to itself, but for right now I will just say this: let your husband talk until he blatantly let's you know he's finished with his thought. When women talk with each other, we just say whatever we are thinking at the time and interrupt each other and talk over each other. Men like to take time to form a cohesive thought in their mind before they say it out loud (a technique I dare say I could learn a bit from).
Financial issues are one of the biggest stressors in a marriage, so it’s important to set up financial guidelines for yourselves early on that are realistic, agreed upon, and something you will stick to month to month. So make sure the things you do over and over again and the habits you are creating now are habits you would be happy to still have 10 years from now.
Unless you are waiting a few months after your wedding to go on your honeymoon (or if you don’t need any sort of transportation ticket or passport), wait to change your name. You might question if you should have waited longer to get married, waited until you knew each other better, or maybe even wonder if you married the right person at all. Talk about who you think should be responsible for what, and also how you will go about letting the other person know if you need some help.
For example, we always start laundry Sunday right after church, and dishes are done right after eating before we sit down to relax for the night.
Over the past year or so due to our different schedules we started going to bed separately and found it really hurt our marriage.
Ia€™m indulging myself in the pursuits I love: reading, travel, cooking, knitting, observing and visiting people, movies and music, playing games and so on. My daughter, Candice, lives in Oregon with her husband, Mark, and our two beautiful and brilliant granddaughters who we call Q and Lou. The first thing I did was paint it white and sew red and white checked curtains for the window. Most people pinch up their face and squint their eyes as if their brain cana€™t quite compartmentalize what theya€™ve just heard.
We were flying home from a trip in California and it was over the airport at a layover in Phoenix. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia—or each other—but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s secret.
And as always, if you’d prefer to keep track of me on social media instead of or in addition to, feel free to connect with me through the links below!
I've learned so many life skills by blogging in everything from all that it takes to have and run your own business, to financial and social skills, to even some advanced technological skills. I’ve learned so many life skills by blogging in everything from all that it takes to have and run your own business, to financial and social skills, to even some advanced technological skills. I’ve actually always had big ideas for a family blog where I could just write about whatever the heck I wanted to and would use it as more of an online journal rather than a cohesive blog (if there even is such a thing). I will make sure to periodically post life updates, DIY projects, and impromptu trips and photos there.
Thank you all SO much for the great ride these past three years, and thank you for your support and your friendship. However, I know there are also a good number of you who either have gone through this, are currently going through it, or are just awesomely supportive of Eric and I and want to keep tabs on how things are going.
After the first half of the appointment, my doctor came in to do some testing and take a look at what the tech had found. I’m generally not a fan of medications (I will take them if I really need them, but will try all other solutions first) and was so pleased that the other two issues discovered the previous day could both be dealt with by surgery alone. It’s funny how dealing with something like this can really open your eyes and make you so much more grateful for all the awesome things you do have.
I've yelled, gotten frustrated, and spent way too much time trying to convince him that he is in fact wrong.
I’ve yelled, gotten frustrated, and spent way too much time trying to convince him that he is in fact wrong. I have a tendency to be super stubborn and so sometimes I don’t even take into consideration that fact that Eric might actually be right and I may actually be the one in the wrong. But really, I’ve found that the best option is to just throw up the white flag as soon as I realize my mistake. In a world where 48% of marriages end in divorce, 20% of couples end up separated, and 20% are just generally unhappy, marriage coaching, when done early in marriage, can make you 80% more likely to have a happy, satisfying, and strong marriage. Well, the best and most interactive way to connect with Valerie is through her Facebook Page; so stop on over and say hello and that you hear about her through The Newlywed Notebook! Most of the time it doesn't bother me, but during the summertime here in Wisconsin (which, hello, is right now) it kind of drives me nuts.
The sun and my skin are pretty much mortal enemies - they want nothing to do with each other. Recently, I've come across both a line of cosmetics and a combination of application that I've been SO impressed with for making me look skin-kissed without being orangey or streaky. Most of the time it doesn’t bother me, but during the summertime here in Wisconsin (which, hello, is right now) it kind of drives me nuts.
The sun and my skin are pretty much mortal enemies – they want nothing to do with each other. I never had a really good contouring powder before, so I wanted to give this one a try for at least that purpose.
Well often times a bronzer has some sort of subtle (or not so subtle) shimmer or sparkle to the product to help highlight certain areas of the face when it catches the light. I use this in conjunction with the next product to really give my face a subtle but beautiful summery glow. Again, I love that this product manages to catch light in this amazing way without being too in-your-face, and without containing a bunch of shimmer or sparkle. Sometimes it was in small things like where he wanted to go for his birthday dinner, but I would also find myself waiting for him in bigger things like when we would get engaged or when he felt it was the right time to purchase a home. But I think the majority of the time we as women are so used to multi-tasking and having to make quick decisions that we have a tendency to lose our patience with our guys when we find ourselves waiting on them. I’ve found that when I give my husband some space to think things through and get used to the change, he usually comes around. If you look really closely you will notice a young pup very eager to see what her mom and dad were doing outside with a camera. Last summer my wonderful husband took on the demanding job of cleaning out the beds all the war around our house.
Eric had accomplishing nothing short of a miracle last summer, but we knew this summer we want to tackle "phase 2" of the project as we like to call it, and take it on home. We also want to paint the front door a rich, glossy black and get a new handle for the front door. I had a lot of hesitations about going, but all in all I was just hopeful they would find something that would be treatable instead of slapping me with the “unexplained infertility” diagnosis and sending us on our merry way. I do much better when I’m able to move forward toward an end goal, no matter how fast or slow progress might be, so I’m very grateful to now have a plan I agree with an can get behind. We were quickly taken back by a nurse to get those initial measurements and paperwork done that you seem to have to do at every appointment, and only had to wait a few minutes for the doctor to arrive.
K, and in our short time together he has already proven to be the most awesome doctor I’ve ever had. He told me that unfortunately he could feel endometriosis all over the right side of my body.
I have a condition called Hashimoto’s Disease (the autoimmune form of hypothyroidism) that I’ve had issues with since I was in 7th grade, and Dr. For example, if you are happy with the way you currently spent your time or the way you and your spouse communicate, then keep right on doing it!


Between learning your husband and learning your own new role as a wife, there is a lot of room for error. I often still wanted my mom to be the first one with whom I shared good news, and the one I went shopping with on Saturday afternoons. The problem arises from the fact that when you go on a plane, train, or try to leave the country, the name on your ticket will need to match the name on your driver’s license and your passport. But rest assured that these little feelings of doubt that creep up are TOTALLY normal and will COMPLETELY go away as you adjust to your new life as a wife. Personally, I think it’s important for each person to have certain things they are responsible for taking care of, or a schedule you plan to stick to. This way we both can take responsibility for these tasks because there is a specific starting point and ending time that we stick to together.
Now, I realize that due to work shifts going to bed at the same time as your spouse isn’t always feasible, but if that is true for you, I urge you to try and do it as often as your schedules can manage. My husband and I sold our house, put stuff in storage, bought an RV, and set off to travel North America.
As I went off to college and into adulthood a library card has always been a prized possession.A  Ia€™ve lived in lots of places in my life and can count 12 different libraries where I was an avid patron.
Herea€™s something else the non-knitter may find it hard to believe: I honestly think I listen better when Ia€™m knitting.
Wea€™d been talking about camping and our retirement and the possibility of getting a pop-up tent camper. I've made so many amazing friends through blogging too, and for all of those things I will be forever grateful.
I’ve made so many amazing friends through blogging too, and for all of those things I will be forever grateful.
I need to focus more on my health, especially as we gear up for my big surgery in a few weeks. Unfortunately (or fortunately I guess…answers are better than no answers, right?) Dr. This polycystic ovaries diagnosis meant more medication – and one that frankly is a bit scary to me.
I can tell you that this has never ever been a beneficial way to approach the situation in any sense of the word, and as soon as I learned this the better off I was.
Shorts and dresses do not feel nearly as comfortable to me when I have a pair of bright white gams sticking out from underneath. I did notice that every once in a while Ulta would have a handful of thebalm products at the counter, but it was never anything I was interested in trying.
This is great for bronzing, however the purpose of a contouring powder is to make areas of your face look like they are in a shadow, not highlighted.
I love the ever so slight peachy color of this product, and that it complements the other two thebalm products beautifully! There are 6 different shades of thebalm’s instain blush, and each one looks like the cover of a different magazine.
I know I personally certainly don’t do this on purpose, but sometimes if my husband and I are having a conversation and he stops talking, I just barge right in with my next thought instead of pausing for 30 seconds to see if he has actually completed his thought.
Eric and I make all our big decisions together of course, but I know he shoulders a lot more of the responsibility than I do when things go wrong.
He took out probably just over half of everything that was in there to give the plants some room to spread out a bit and breathe. We also want to replace the storm door with something a little more modern like this black storm door from Lowes. This was the first time in my adult life having a male doctor so I was a bit nervous about that, but I was so pleased to discover that we got along very well and I was very comfortable with him. He knew it was pretty bad but wouldn’t be sure the exact extent of it until he gets in there for surgery, which was scheduled right away. K is very committed to changing my medications and dosages in order to get that under control. So next time you ask your husband (or any man, really) a question, just sit there and wait for them to talk. Slowly though, Eric and I began to see each other as our "family" and rely on each other instead of our parents. Getting all of that documentation changed can take weeks, if not months, so don’t start the name change process until after you get back from vacation. For example, it’s my responsibility to take Stella outside and put her in her kennel before we leave for work in the mornings. For this specific example, I wouldn’t yell to Eric two seconds before he has to leave to take care of Stella. Since that first kitchen Ia€™ve had a galley kitchen, a big country kitchen and a u-shaped cooka€™s dream kitchen. When it came time to retire and downsize our belongings, what to do with all the books was the hardest part for me. Back in my business days I often wished I could have been able to knit during some of those long meetings. At almost the same time we looked at each other and said: a€?Why dona€™t we just sell the house, get an RV and then we can go camping all the time? I love that it has a more obvious meaning and also an almost secondary hidden message that is very special to both Eric and I.
I need to look forward to the weekends and spend them being lazy with my husband or doing things we love like working on the house, instead of feverishly trying to burn through all the list of things I either have to do for my blog or things I’ve been neglecting because of it. So who knows, maybe The Newlywed Notebook will turn into that down the road and you will see me again. They will give you tips, tricks, and tools to help you better communicate with and understand your partner, all while building an extraordinary relationship with your spouse!
This helps to create shape and dimension to your face by creating areas of less light and areas of more light. This is easily my new favorite blush, and I can’t wait to add a few more colors to my collection.
You can read more about this in #6 of A Beginner’s Guide to Marriage-ing, but basically the main difference in how men and women process information is that women process their thoughts as they are saying them out loud, and men process them in their head fully first before the speak. I think there are many men out there who feel similarly, so we as women need to remember that if our husband’s want to take a bit more time to think things through so that they feel 100% comfortable with any big decisions being made, we need to give them the time to do so (even though the waiting period can totally suck). I know it's not nearly as good, but the light looked exactly the same as the old ones that replaced in this post.
I know it’s not nearly as good, but the light looked exactly the same as the old ones that replaced in this post. I liked that they were a bit different than just shreds of wood pieces; it even included pieces of wood that looked like they had at one point been a part of a ship or a building. He also told me that he suspects I may have a uterine septum (you can google it if you’re interested) and if so I would need to have corrective surgery for that at the same time as my laparoscopy for the endometriosis.
It can actually be something very dangerous to be struggling with during a pregnancy, so I am all for taking the next month or so to get that regulated. K as that family member had been the one who recommended him to Eric and I, but the other one was a complete surprise to me, happened almost 10 years ago, and I just found out about it a few weeks ago. I believe that no matter who you are this shift in thinking takes some time, but if you can start mentally preparing for it even before you get married, you will have a much smoother transition. I believe that no matter who you are this shift in thinking takes some time, but if you can start mentally preparing for it even before you get married, you will have a much smoother transition. And when you purchase your tickets for your honeymoon before your wedding, make sure to book them under your maiden name and not your soon-to-be married name.
When you crash into bed separately at the end of a long day you are missing out on an emotional and physical connection that is so important in a marriage. We wouldna€™t have to worry about the house and yard.a€? And right there the decision was made. But, if you want to find out what that is you will need to head over to my very first blog post on Life on the Ropes (shameless plug, I know).
I need to look forward to the weekends and spend them being lazy with my husband or doing things we love like working on the house, instead of feverishly trying to burn through all the list of things I either have to do for my blog or things I've been neglecting because of it. In fact, he's pretty convinced that at this point it has also spread into my body and is growing around certain organs, which is pretty typical of more advanced endo. In fact, he’s pretty convinced that at this point it has also spread into my body and is growing around certain organs, which is pretty typical of more advanced endo.
Eric and I actually participated in pre-marital coaching the few months leading up to our wedding, and it was such an amazing opportunity for us to work through some potential issues before they even became such in a controlled environment.
You should be placing contouring powder in places you want to draw light away from and in essence, look smaller and take up less space visually, such as in the hollows of your cheeks and the sides of your nose.
Again, a little goes a long way with this stuff, but I’ve been using it almost every day for over a month now and I’m totally sold! I love that this stuff acts like a stain in the sense that it stays in place all day and is extremely pigmented, but it goes on like a powder and is very blendable. So next time you are impatiently waiting for your guy to answer a question, make a decision on where to go or what to do, or just seem to not have cared or understood what you just said, give them a few minutes to process, and then speak. Sometimes my husband may make the decision to put the breaks on something or to wait until later to do something or to take on something, and I’m realizing I need to respect that and not fight him on it. This post also had a weird sign sticking out of the left side of it that had our house numbers on it. We finished by scheduling me for an ultrasound in a few weeks to either confirm or deny the septum. He will also be testing a lot of different hormone and vitamin levels in order to get everything into tip-top shape before I go in for surgery.
When I first read about this in the book, The Queen’s Code by Alison Armstrong, I thought it was just nonsense, but was shocking to discover it actually works!
We discovered we werena€™t the only ones who had the idea of selling our house and traveling in an RV. However without going into all the details, it was decided that I will need another specialist brought in for my surgery to address some possible extra complications this spread of endo may have caused.
So for that reason most contouring powders and bronzers should not be used interchangeably. I use it right on top of my cheekbones, on my temples, and finish with a light sweep across my hairline on my forehead. I think I mentioned in my last fertility post that Eric and I were nervous to start all this because we didn’t really know yet where the line was between just taking action and starting to play God. You just want advice on "what to expect," or "what not to do," or "common pitfalls to avoid" so you spend your time experiencing the "better" of marriage, and not so much of the "worse." So from one wifey to another, here is my beginners guide for surviving marriage. But for days I want to add a little extra flush and color to my complexion, I reach for this one every single time. Our main goal in all this is to follow God’s plan for our lives and to have this be a season of life that honors Him. So to see all these connections pop up and to have a feeling of such peace with “our plan” so far has been such a blessing and a source of comfort for us.
And let me just tell you that that 10-15 minute wait was one of the longest times of my entire life. I can still have that fresh bread smell, the soup on the back burner and a fruit pie cooling by the window.A Life is good.
