Almay vs. MAC

Since I was 15 I have been an advocate for MAC makeup.  I love the stuff.  But for some reason the last 2 years of my life MAC and I have been in a love hate relationship.  I love the their vibrant colors and fun styles, but my face doesn’t.  As much as I wanted to deny it MAC foundation makes my face break out.  Sad day right? Wrong!  I though I wouldn’t find a foundation that I liked more, but thanks to my sister, I did.  Almay Smart Shade is amazing.  I was nervous when buying this products, but my sister insured me I would love it.  It has great coverage, but is extremely light, unlike MAC foundation.   I really like the product and would suggest it for anyone.  It only comes in 3 shades, I picked the lightest, but it blends to your skin perfectly!  I’m definitely an Almay fan now!

Submarine Movies, Not for the Faint of Heart

Josh and I have been watching submarine movies lately.  these darn movie are so intense.  I can feel my blood pressure raising as these movies unfold.  I couldn't live on a sub.  I feel claustrophobic as I watch them.  At the same time I admire anyone that can live and work in these amazing machines.  I recommend these movies, but not if you are faint of heart. 


Delicious!

Doesn't this look like the best snack!  I love fresh fruit.

The Best Football Appetizer


Football season is here, and I can’t think of a better food to eat during the big opening game than bean dip.  This recipe is so easy.  This is a definite crowd pleaser that won’t take you all day to make!


Recipe: 
First Layer: 1 can refried beans mixed with 1 teaspoon cumin and ¼ teaspoon garlic salt.
Second layer: 1 Avocado mixed with ¼ cup of Mayonnaise and ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Third Layer: Regular sour cream
Fourth Layer: Cheese (my favorite layer)
Fifth Layer: Tomatoes, yellow onion, and cilantro
Such a fun dip that screams football!  P.S. Way to go BYU Cougs!

Mormon Ads


Since Josh and I moved to El Paso we have made a good list of things we enjoy about this city.  Number one on our list is most definitely our ward.  I look forward to church each week to see all of our wonderful friends.  It is funny, all the girls in my office were so baffled at how I could have an instant group of friends the second we moved here.  I feel so lucky and blessed that we have such a strong ward, who care so much about us.  I was lucky enough to receive a calling to work with the young women.  I am the Beehive advisor.  I love working with these girls each week.  They never cease to amaze me!  This last week for mutual I taught a lesson on the Strength of Youth and to follow up we made our own Mormon Ads.  The girls had such a great time, and just love the way their ads turned out.
