My favorite day of the month!

12 Jun

That’s right, it’s Birchbox time!

This month there was a world traveler theme.  In my box I got: two self tanning wipes, a jumbo eye color stick, a tube of 50 SPF moisturizer with zinc and vitamin C *I have been using this as my moisturizer lately and love it!, a dual lip/cheek stain, an airport friendly stylish plastic baggie, and a new sample from the Birchbox men’s line.  I’m pretty excited about the jumbo eye stick and lip stain.  I don’t know about the self tanner.  I usually stay away from it because I don’t want to end up looking like this…

Yeah, sorry celebrity I don’t know.  I really don’t want to look like I’ve had to many carrots…

I’ll probably give my dad or brother the Birchbox men’s sample.  I mean I do like smelling like dude all the time, but…

My other favorite days of the month include: pay-day, Foodie Penpal box arrival day, Friday, start to the beginning of a four-day weekend day, free donut day (which I missed!). 

Yesterday was field day, I guess another favorite day!  The first graders were running around and one little boy tripped and fell.  No biggie…  He came up to me with a blood filled mouth.  Awesome.

I asked him what happened

S-I was running, and I fell, and my tooth came out!

MG – Okay, well let’s go to the nurse (thinking he just slammed a tooth out of his mouth)

MG – Did the tooth just fall out or was it loose.

S – No it was a loose tooth, but I can’t find it on the ground.  It’s okay I’ll go find it.  (the area he lost it is just a big patch of dirt)

We didn’t go back to find it, sorry tooth fairy, and he went back to Field day.  Good times.

In other exciting news, the Norfolk Admirals are back in town.  I’ve heard that they are planning on celebrating tomorrow with a parade and party afterwards.  Sounds like my Wednesday evening is planned!

Oh! Who wants to shave an admiral??  No, no takers!?

Enjoy your favorite day of the month…probably not Tuesday though, right?
