Raccoon Eyes

Remember this past winter when we remodeled our kitchen? Yeah, that was a blast.

Well, for the past few months, Jay and I have been given the daily reminder of our remodel every time we walked out into our garage.



And outside to our back yard…


But thanks to some major help from my Dad and brother, we are now free and clear of ALL of our junk. It’s a miracle!

I know it still looks like there’s quite a bunch of stuff in there, and that’s because there is. That’s all of the stuff I had to take out of my classroom and I still need to figure out what to do with it…



The day here has been absolutely beautiful! Sunny skies, temps in the 70’s…oh yes. It sounded like an al fresco kinda lunch day to me.


I made a big ‘ol salad with romaine, spinach, cukes, carrots, grape tomatoes, celery, red onion, chickpeas, dried cranberries, Chavrie, and a drizzle of light balsamic vinaigrette. It was, in one word, awesome.


On the side, I also snacked on some of these Wheat Thins Fiber Selects. I have no idea how many I consumed except for the fact that it was a lot. Note to self: Remember to portion out your crackers, Courtney! Eye rolling smile


Now I have a question for all you ladies out there…

For the past year or two, I have been loving my Prescriptives Site Unseen concealer. I was lucky enough to be blessed with lovely dark under-eye circles, and this little guy has done an amazing job at keeping them under wraps.


However, Prescriptives went out of business a few months back, and my stockpile of concealers is about to run out. Ohhh the horror.


So, this means that I’ve got to find myself a killer under-eye concealer fast, before I turn back into raccoon-eyed Courtney. It’s scary, trust me.

Question for the Afternoon:

What’s under-eye concealers would you recommend?
