Things to be excited about:

~ On Tuesday, Nomz and I get to see and meet Barlowgirl! If you don't know who they are, checkout a few of our recent blogs- we've been listening to them to learn more of their songs. My goal? To get a jumping picture. That's right. Here's to hopin' that they're cool enough to make fools of themselves with a couple-o-fans.

~ My genius friend, Stevie (insert FB and Twitter tag here), has been helping me with my little breakout issue. Her suggestion? Wash my face daily with plain yogurt, moisturize with coconut oil and, once a week, use a mask of mashed banana and honey. Thus far? I'm amazed. The coconut oil is brilliant; I don't think I'll ever use another moisturizer again. What about the Proactiv, you ask? I sold it to my brother. ;-)

~ There are precisely 261 days until October 10th, 2010. Not that we're counting. What is so special about said date, you ask? The wedding of the century, of course! Aaaand, I get to be apart of it!! Hello, who wouldn't want to be surrounded by damask?! I ♥ my Ashleyface.

~ Also on Tuesday, I get to whip my camera out and take pictures of a seven week old baby. Awwwwww. I may or may not also develop baby fever.

~ My friends are pretty much the best a human could ask for. When life consists of impromptu photoshoots, black dress shopping, escapes to the nail salon and Chick-fil-A on a regular basis, it's practically impossible to get down.

~ There are precisely 33 days until SPRING. Yes, I'm counting...

~ Taxes shall be deposited into my account I'm not going to spend it (not very much, anyway) and it feels so nice knowing I'm going to have a little bit of a cushion to build upon.
~ This whole divorce/custody issue? It's almost over. Soon, I'll be able to breath a little easier.

~ With Junbzee in tow, I finally had a semi-spa day. It was delightful--- and I love the sound of my indestructible nails clicking away on the keyboard.

I have every confidence that my beautifulfaces will have NO issue in the world getting a jumping picture!

How DO you wash your face with plain yogurt? Just glob it on & wash it off? It sounds like face fingerpainting & I love it. Your skin really did look all dewy/happy today, seriously.

<3 <3 that I'm going to be surrounded by such gorgeous, big-hearted girls on my big day!

Also? I'm penning a love letter now to those last two quotes.

My instructions were to wet my face with warm water, "lather" the yogurt on my face with long sweeping motions (count to thirty) and rinse it off like any other soap. The yogurt is cold, obviously, because I can't keep it out of the fridge. I do use a lot because it kinda "melts" <--- can't think of another word. I have a feeling I'll go through a good amount, but at $2 per pint, I'm okay with it! Also, the amazing coconut oil is awesome; definitely not greasy and oh so good smelling. A little goes a looong way, too!
