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!

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.

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!

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.
