Monday Fun & Link Up

I feel like there is so much I want to talk about and not nearly enough here are a few things I need to get out on this Monday!

1. Valentines Day Swap-

After doing the book swap I was definitely in for a Valentines day swap! I haven't done anything for Vday in years so it was nice to get some goodies! I was partnered up with Samantha @ The Lotus Thrives Anyway
So glad I did!! Look at all the great stuff she got me! I've already used one of the polishes of course.

2. A 2nd Date-
I went on a 2nd date with Mr.Hops! It was kind of a last minute decision, I was supposed to be joining some coworkers for a screening party and didn't want to go alone since A has come down with germies and is sickly at home. I text him asking what he had planned for the night and he responded taking me out. So we did! We headed to a bar/lounge and had drinks and hung out. I thought I might make it to the party but it didn't happen and I am definitely ok with that! I had a great time! 

3.   The Grammys -
I actually  almost forgot about the Grammys because well...yea I am just not a big awards show gal. So lets see....the performances were pretty good. I have no idea who was wearing what but I know I thought Carrie Underwood looked amazing! Adele was fantastic! I was really slow to get on the Adele bandwagon but once I joined I realized she has serious talent. She deserved all those awards and then some! Ummm what else...Rihanna needs clean up that mess of hair, Nicki Minaj makes me want to punch her through the screen. Loved the song Katy Perry performed though not so much her outfit or performance. Blake Shelton & Adam Levine....yes please!!! 

4. Mrs. M's Birthday-
It was my mama's birthday this sunday! We went for Sushi at our fave family sushi place and had a grand ole time! We got her a Pandora charm bracelet for her bday, we hope she loved it and it seems she did! I can't tell you how old she is but I tell you she doesn't look like she is old enough to be my mother! 

5. Whitney Houston-
oooh Whitney! I was definitely sad to hear that she died. She was yet another troubled but amazing talent. I don't presume to know what drove the woman to ruin her life with drugs but I can only say that it is a sad story. This was my favorite Whitney Houston song!! 

I think thats all I want to share for now!! Check out my All About Me post for the link up at A Complete Waste of Makeup!

I totally missed this swap. It looked like so much fun! Your date sounded fun!!! Seriously, your mom could pass as your sister!!!! You are both beauties!!!

Sami @ The Lotus Thrives Anyway said...

Awe, I'm glad you liked everything! Sounds like you had a good time on your date =]

Love your swap gifts! Super cute! I really enjoyed mine, too, but I wish I'd been more creative in the one that I sent. It was hard to keep it under $10 (and I think some people cheated on that!!).

Congrats on having a good date.. keep us updated there! :)

I was slow to get on the Adele bandwagon, too, but she's super talented and I'm glad that someone who's sole claim to fame is their TALENT (instead of looks or controversy) was finally recognized.
