#Blogtober14 and One Lovely Blog

I have mentioned a week or so ago, that I've started putting more time into my blog.  Though, this week it has been hard!  I've been busy with work and dog-momming so I haven't been commenting like I usually do.  I have also found that the link up seems to be getting smaller-  but that may just be because I've only checked it a couple times during the day.

Today's post is supposed to be "your favorite beauty product that you can't live without."  Right now, that would be sleep.  A) because I have not been sleeping well so that affects everything I do.  B) because I'm the worst female ever:
  • I rarely wear makeup on weekends- we're usually doing some outside activity, but if we are going in to public I'll just wear foundation/powder and mascara.  And make sure I have my wedding rings on so people can see that someone actually married me like this.
  • I chew my nails, have since I was a very very small child.  Therefore if I don't have acrylics, my hands look like hell.  Less so due to the shiny rock.
  • I sleep with my makeup on, on a regular basis- if I don't remember to clean my face before getting into bed, I'm certainly not going to get back up to do it. 
  • Unless I take a shower at night, which is generally the case.  But I still don't use toner or moisturizer
So now that we've established that I am going to have old, dry, wrinkly skin before 40, on to the good stuff.  The One Lovely Blog Award! Charlotte over at A Love Triangle nominated me for this!  Go check her out- she's one of the new blogs I follow thanks to Blogtober!!

Now I'm passing on the love!  Here are the rules:
  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Add the Lovely blog award logo onto your post/ blog.
  3. Share 7 facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire/ read and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.
So, I'm qualifying the above facts about my makeup routine/ lack thereof as 4 of my random facts as well.  Here are 3 more:
  • It bothers the crap out of me if the light switches are opposite- like one in the "off" position and one in the "on" position when you have multiple.... panels for the room.  Does that even make sense?
  • I have a Roomba, his name is Peewee.  We refer to him as "him." 
  • I have a weird need to collect things.  I have probably 200 shot glasses.  I don't drink.  Well.  I don't take shots.  I also have been carrying around park passports in my purse.  I have one for Maine, Florida, and the National Parks.  I get the appropriate one stamped any time we go to a state/national park.

  1. 200 shot glasses :O That's mad! And sleep is a good one, I think we can all agree with that! :)

    Thanks so much for the shout out! :)

  3. It really is! I can't say how many I've got, I just know that whenever we go some place "new" I get one. And I got a bunch from one of my Army friends that would always get me one wherever he went. Resulting in Afghanistan and Iraq shot glasses.

  4. You're welcome!! You deserve it! :)

    I was a nail biter for the longest time and then finally stopped last year and I"m so happy I did - my nails are still short but at least they look better LOL!! Thanks for the nomination!!

  6. The last time I had acrylics I was SO close to breaking the habit! But about a week after the came off, I was back to square one.

  7. OMG I am the same way about light switches! We have a panel of three at work and it drives me nuts when they aren't all facing the same way when they are ON, I have to go and switch the other one off so that they can all match. LOL

  8. Hahah its one of the many ways that my husband and I are similar. So it baffles me when I enter a room and see the switches all jacked up. I think he does it just to mess with me.

  9. That's just cruel!!!!!!

  10. Thank you so much for the nomination! You're so sweet!

  11. You're welcome! You deserve it!
