High Five for Friday!

 photo H54Fbutton-1_zpsa7aaa665.png Hey y’all! (Yep, I said y’all.)  Sorry I haven’t posted much this week, but I am linking up with Lauren at thelaurenelizabeth.com for H54F!  Here is what I have been up to this week!

1.  On Saturday night, I babysat this cutie and painted her toenails.  I also did my nails in the same color, and she loved that we matched!  This girl has more personality than she  knows what to do with lol!575445_10100419636427436_599796343_n

2.  On Sunday night, my hubby and I went to a cookout with some of our very good friends (one family is the same one I babysat for the night before).  It was so much fun to eat, play ladder golf, then chill around the fire after the kiddos had gone to bed.  My hubby and I are the only ones in that group that don’t have kids, but I love getting to play and love on their cuties!

3.  On Memorial Day, we had some friends over to hang out at our neighborhood pool and a cookout at our place.  Of course, I managed to not take any pictures, though I doubt y’all mind not being subjected to pictures of me in a bathing suit.  Anyway, it was fun to hang out with some other couples that don’t have kids (we’ve nicknamed ourselves “the barren couples” haha).  That night, Jeff and I watched Act of Valor.  It was a perfect way to be reminded of what our soldiers do and sacrifice on a daily basis to keep our country free.

5.  Tomorrow, we are planning to attend the funeral for my hubby’s childhood pastor, who also married us.  Though it is a sad time, it is also a time for rejoicing as we know he is in heaven celebrating with his Jesus!

How has your week been?

DIY Heated Eyelash Curler

ImagePart of my daily makeup routine is applying mascara.  But before I apply the mascara, I always use an eyelash curler because my eyelashes are relatively straight.  A few years ago, I read a tip in some magazine about heating your eyelash curler to make the curl even better.  Lifechanging!!! AND you don’t have to buy an expensive heated eyelash curler like one of these.  All you have to do is take your regular metal eyelash curler, get your hairdryer, and point the hairdryer at the eyelash curler for a couple of seconds with the setting on warm.  You can also press the curler against your straightener or curling iron if it is on.  Be careful not to get the curler too hot or you’ll burn your eyes.

What is one of your little beauty tricks/secrets?
