Happy Birthday, Julie!

My sister Julie got a rude awakening this morning with RJ wanting breakfast.  Meanwhile, I was able to sleep in because a) RJ didn't wake me up and b) OPM announced a 2-hour delay for the federal government, woot
I had a shopping victory this afternoon.  Not that I bought anything or found a good deal, but it's that I didn't buy anything!  I went to Ulta after my last conference call of the day, armed with coupons and I could get double points because it's my birthday month.  They were having a buy 2 get 1 free deal on Loreal products. I've been wanting to try their foundation, concealer and eyeliner, so I had all 3 items in my hands when I went to the checkout line.  The cashier was busy helping someone else, and in that moment of waiting, I was looking at the makeup and didn't feel confident enough that it'd be yellow enough for my skin tone, so I took everything back.  There was a lady in the high end makeup section who pointed out some Stila yellow based foundations and concealers, but they were definitely not at drugstore price.  Blah, no thanks.  I'm not that desperate yet.  I'll make do with what I have.

After spin class, I went to Giant to pick up an apple pie and ice cream for Julie's birthday.  Dad carried out from That's Amore for Julie's birthday dinner.  Good thing I got some exercise in, whew!  I gave Julie a bag of Starbursts and gummy bears (she's more into fruit candy whereas I go for anything chocolate).  I told her I'd get her a zoo shirt to add to my collection while I'm in San Diego.

Here's the card that I made for Julie's birthday.  I was really lucky to have cherry stickers to go with the sentiment.

Nice card.....I want to wish you a Happy Birthday...I see you have been doing a good job at it. One must celebrate the whole month.

Hope RJ behaves himself at mom's house. Wonder what makes him mischievous....maybe just curious about his new surroundings. Enjoy your little trip, hope it is warm.
