Newness

Right before we left for our trip, my washing machine broke. I mean really broke. So when we got back last week, we went shopping for a new set. They were delivered on Sunday and I've been doing laundry since then. Today I finished. I was so bummed about running out of laundry to do that I decided to wash my rugs (bathroom and kitchen) haha! This new set really does a good job so far! *knock on wood*

Also, we got new phones. Yes, we've finally joined the 21st century and got smart phones. We honestly don't really need that kind of functionality, but whatever. Our previous, semi-stupid phones, were fine though. I do miss the slide-out keyboard, but our service provider doesn't support any phones with slide-out keyboards at all! Even though they are coming out with good ones too!

We settled on getting identical phones so if there's any learning curve we can help each other out. Last time we got new phones we each picked differently and regretted that decision since neither could help the other. We got Motorola Atrix HD phones. This model seems to do everything we need and runs on Android which we prefer. (We won't have any apple products in the house unless it's juice or sauce! HAHA!)

At first I was a bit freaked out because LEARNING A NEW PHONE OMG! But after the first day I was really fine. It's basically just like my Nexus 7 only smaller and with a phone. It does go through the battery a lot faster than my old one though. Still, I think it's worth it.

Over the weekend, The Big Aussie and I had an opportunity to go to The Home Depot to get some tools or whatever. (IDK, he handles all that stuff, I can barely stay conscious in there as it's so boring, but he's happy to to go Sephora with me so I am happy to go to HD with him.) Anyway, we're holding hands as we walk into the shop, we always walk around like that, it's no big deal to us, it's just normal. But the greeter is like FREAKING OUT. " OMG YOU ARE HOLDING HANDS! WHAT IS YOUR SECRET? HOW ARE YOU STILL ABLE TO TOLERATE EACH OTHER AT YOUR AGE?!?"

Is it that unusual for an older couple to still hold hands? I never really thought anything of it. Then again, when his sister visited last year she said "you guys act like a couple of teenagers!" when all we did was exchange a chaste kiss (no tongues, lips closed) in front of her a couple of times. It doesn't seem that weird to me that even old people like ourselves would be affectionate (tastefully, not sucking face) with each other.

Lip Stain

I got the most amazing lip stain over the weekend. Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain. I got Cha Cha and Quickstep. LOVE THEM! It lasts until you take it off basically. As a test I put some on before bed and it was still PERFECT when I got up this morning. And after I brushed my teeth too! It's really great.

Sofa!

Our new sofa is here. It looks so good. It is a bit smaller, but taller than our old sofa, but it looks really nice. It's so much taller that we had to go out and get new end tables, so yesterday wound up being really busy.

Last night we watched "The Woman in Black" in bed. OMG that was so scary! I actually screamed out loud a couple of times! Highly recommend it if you want to be really scared!

I lost another pound and a half :)

Also, we bought a new sofa which will be delivered on Friday. I took a pic with my phone. It looks beige in the pic, but it's not, it's more of a taupe, but the color subtly changes depending on the lighting. Sometimes it looks like a very pale olive green. I has a modern look without being trendy, and I like that.

Nail Polish

A couple of weeks ago, I got a new nail polish, a new color by Revlon called Bewitching. It's a very dark red, and I liked it. Then, my husband bought me a color that I'd used before but not in a few years called Raven Red. Well, I think these two colors are identical. So much so that I decided to paint nine nails Raven Red and one Bewitching, and guess what? Can't tell a difference! Why would they sell two identical colors under different names, while discontinuing my favorite color, Frankly Scarlet?

I've lost 2.8 pounds this week :) I am so happy, that makes nine pounds so far. Woot! I'll be able to get back into my normal clothes soon.

Yesterday was such a lovely day. The Big Aussie and I went to the mall and shopped around. I got another pair of shoes like last week only in the champagne color. They look so cute and the champagne color will look nice with my brown clothes. My new Vera bags finally came so I was able to use one of them as well. I posted links to them earlier.

We went by Sephora and I got an eyelash curler. This one heats up and doesn't crimp the lashes. The salesman said that normal eyelash curlers can actually weaken the lashes and cause them to break. Ö Well, my eyelashes are pretty short and pathetic already so I don't need them breaking off!

Then we went to eat at Ruby Tuesdays. They actually have a very nice "fit and trim" menu. We had a delicious chicken breast in a mushroom sauce with grilled zucchini and spaghetti squash. YUM!

Then last night on Lotro, my little Hobbit hunter, Nigella, WON a Steed of the Hunter! Here she is on the Brandywine bridge:

Purses

I just got a new purse. It's Bowler but in a discontinued color "Carnaby". It was a lot cheaper than the new colors, plus it's the old style bowler rather than the new one, and it's such a great style!

Then by signing up for the website, they sent me a great coupon so I ordered two more which have yet to arrive.

Squared Away in Safari Sunset and Saddle Up in Bali blue, which wound up being virtually free thanks to the great coupon they sent me.

I'm thinking about getting the e-reader cover in Safari Sunset as well. I like the color scheme and it would be cool to pull it out of my purse, plus it's very cushiony.

Anyone else like Vera Bradley? I actually started on these bags with a $20 knock-off that I still love. It is identical to Vera Bradley's Bowler down to the last stitch just in a different (but lovely) pattern.

Also got these shoes over the weekend. They are so cute! I love them.

We had to get a new coffee maker because our old one died. We've used Bunn coffee makers for years and years because they are so fast and they make good coffee. But when I priced the new ones I had a real case of sticker-shock! They wanted over $150 for one like our old one that died! Uh, no!

So I went to Amazon and checked out reviews and finally settled on this baby! It looks so great, I find it has a 50s kitchy quality to it, and it gets great reviews! And now that I have it in my hot little hands, I find that it also makes great coffee. It has features that my old coffee maker didn't too. Like I can pull the pot out in the middle of a brew cycle without coffee going everywhere. It just stops until I put the carafe back in place. I really love it!

So we went shopping today.  We needed a new toilet seat so we wound up at Wal-Mart.  I hate that place.  I wish there were a Target close by, but there's not so we wound up at Wal-Mart.  Ugh.

I'm so glad that pants that come all the way up to the waist are back in style!  To celebrate, I bought three pairs of jeans this weekend.  I also got two pairs of El Naturalista shoes.  They are so cute!  It's amazing that they are both the most comfortable shoes ever made, and also good looking.
