Birthday Celebration and OOTD

Hope you all had a great Columbus Day! Didn't seem like much of a holiday on our end...the Mr. and I both worked and M went to the grandparents house since school was closed. Seemed like a typical Monday to us...minus all the crazy Austin traffic! The morning drive was glorious!!!

This weekend we celebrated my nieces' 9th birthday! She's 9 years old. 9. Maybe if I say it over and over again, it will sink in. I cannot believe she is 9! I feel like just yesterday she could barely say my name! While now, I have pre-teen conversations with her-on the phone! {sigh} She is such an amazing little {tall} girl though. We love her to pieces.

To celebrate she wanted to go eat at a Mexican restaurant in the area, Morelia's Mexican Grill. Their food is delicious and they have great drink specials too. My favorite thing to order is their Steak Enchiladas and Mexican Martini {i was so hungry i forgot to snap a picture}

such a diva with the hand on the hip!

Believe it or not in our area it is still in the mid to high 90s. I die. I'm ready for the weather to catch up to the season. Because I wanted to be as "Fall" as possible yet still be comfortable in the 97 degree weather, I went for an olive dress I got at Old Navy a couple months ago. {unfortunately that dress is no longer available-so sorry!!!} This one here and here are on my "to-buy" list! I love Old Navy dresses, they are comfortable and can be dressed up or down.

For my makeup I went with a subtle plum and nude on the eye lids, peachy cheeks and matte mauve lips.

pardon the dirty Beauty Blender! 

I've really been loving the new Smashbox BB Water as well. It feels like you have nothing on your face while still giving you medium coverage. It's great for everyday wear or even as a base under your normal foundation. {i wear it in the color Medium}


I did nothing crazy for the lids.  I used Wanderer all over the lid and Free Spirit on upper lid from the Tartelette Palette. I also used Factory from the Naked 3 Palette over the lid as well. I like using the Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara for lash volume. The Milani Luminoso blush is my favorite blush of all time! I love it!!

Can't go out in this hot weather without my sunnies! These were a gift from the Mr. a couple birthdays ago. I love them! 

As much as I love the warm weather, I am so ready for the cool weather to grace us with it's presence. What's the weather like in your area?
