I've been sickies!

So I've been MIA I had the stomach flu! What's left of it today is a horrible headache and I have a sty...grr!

It sucks being sick when you have no one around my family lives four hours away. I moved from Va Beach to Martinsburg,WV when I got married. El Hub got a better job and we found a beautiful home at a steal. We also have a wonderful church which was trully important for us. The downside: I miss my family sooo much! I've never lived outside my parents home before I married. It was a scary move I must admit but I thank God for a wonderful caring husband who loves me and makes my every wish come true!

Anyways, if you do have request please post them or email at mariposadedios@gmail.com send me pics of what you need a look for! I would be glad to help and will try my best to meet your needs

till lata

Corn Shadestick all over - very important

>> My husband

>>
>> I knew that my husband

>>
>> My husband thought for a few

>> window.
>>
>>
>>
>> He said 'Son, stand there and tell me what you see?'
>>
>>
>> 'I see trees and cars and our neighbor's houses,' he replied.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK, now I want you to pretend that our house and our yard is the
>> United States of America and you are President Bush.
>>
>> '
>>
>> Our son giggled and said 'OK.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Now son, I want you to look out the window and pretend that every
>> house and yard on this block is a different country' my husband said.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK Dad, I'm pretending.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Now I want you to stand there and look out the window and pretend
>> you see Saddam come out of his house with his wife, he has her by the
>> hair and is hitting her. You see her bleeding and crying.
>>
>> He hits her
>> in the face, he throws her on the ground, then he starts to kick her
>> to death.
>>
>> Their children run out and are afraid to stop him, they are
>> screaming and crying, they are watching this but do nothing because
>> they are kids and they are afraid of their father.
>>
>> You see all of
>> this, son ... what do you do?'
>>
>> 'Dad?'
>>
>> 'What do you do son?'
>>
>> 'I'd call the police, Dad.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'OK. Pretend that the police are the United Nations.
>>
>> They take your
>> call. They listen to what you know and saw but they refuse to help.
>>
>>
>> What do you do then son?'
>>
>> 'Dad ......... but the police are supposed to help!' My son starts to
>> whine.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'They don't want to, son, because they say that it is not their place
>> or your place to get involved and that you should stay out of it,' my
>> husband says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'But Dad ... he killed her!!' my son exclaims.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'I know he did .... but the police tell you to stay out of it.
>>
>> Now I
>> want you to look out that window and pretend you see our neighbor who
>> you're pretending is Saddam turn around and do the same thing to his
>> children'
>>
>> 'Daddy ..... he kills them?'
>>
>> 'Yes, son, he does.
>>
>> What do you do?'
>>
>> 'Well, if the police don't want to help, I will go and ask my next
>> door neighbor to help me stop him,' our son says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'Son, our next door neighbor sees what is happening and refuses to
>> get involved as well.. He refuses to open the door and help you stop
>> him,' my husband says.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'But Dad, I NEED help!!! I can't stop him by myself!!'
>>
>> 'WHAT DO YOU DO SON?' Our son starts to cry.
>>
>>
>>
>> 'OK, no one wants to help you, the man across the street saw you ask
>> for help and saw that no one would help you stop him.
>>
>> He stands
>> taller and puffs out his chest.
>>
>> Guess what he does next, son?'
>>
>> 'What Daddy?'
>>
>> 'He walks across the street to the old ladies house and breaks down
>> her door and drags her out, steals all her stuff and sets her house
>> on fire and then ... he kills her.
>>
>> He turns around and sees you
>> standing in the window and laughs at you.
>>
>> WHAT DO YOU DO?'
>>
>> 'Daddy...'
>>
>> 'WHAT DO YOU DO?' Our son is crying and he looks down and he
>> whispers, 'I'd close the blinds, Daddy.
>>
>> '
>>
>> My husband looks at our son with tears in his eyes and asks him
>> 'Why?'
>>
>> 'Because, Daddy ..... the police are supposed to help people who need
>> them ... and they won't help ... You always say that neighbors are
>> supposed to HELP neighbors, but they won't help either ... they won't
>> help me stop him ... I'm afraid ... I can't do it by myself, Daddy
>> ... I can't look out my window and just watch him do all these
>> terrible things and, and, do nothing .. so, I'm just going to close
>> the blinds ... so I can't see what he's doing ... and I'm going to
>> pretend that it is not happening.
>>
>> '
>>
>> I start to cry.
>>
>> My husband looks at our nine year old son standing in
>> the window, looking pitiful and ashamed at his answers to my
>> husband's questions and he says ...
>>
>> 'Son'
>>
>> 'Yes, Daddy.
>>
>> '
>>
>> 'Open the blinds because that man .... He's at your front door
>> ...'WHAT DO YOU DO?'
>>
>> My son looks at his father, anger and defiance in his eyes.
>>
>> He balls
>> up his tiny fists and looks his father square in the eyes, without
>> hesitation he says: ' I DEFEND MY FAMILY, DAD!! I'M NOT GONNA LET HIM
>> HURT MOMMY OR MY SISTER, DAD!!! I'M GONNA FIGHT HIM, DAD, I'M GONNA
>> FIGHT HIM!!!!!'
>>
>> I see a tear roll down my husband's cheek and he grabs our son to his
>> chest and hugs him tight, and says ... ' It's too late to fight him,
>> he's too strong and he's already at YOUR front door son ... you
>> should have stopped him BEFORE he killed his wife, and his children
>> and the old lady across the way.
>>
>> You have to do what's right, even if
>> you have to do it alone, before its too late,' my husband whispers.
>>
>>
>>
>> THAT scenario I just gave you is WHY we are at war with Iraq .
>>
>> When
>> good men stand by and let evil happen, son, THAT is the greatest
>> atrocity in the world.
>>
>> 'YOU MUST NEVER BE AFRAID TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT
>> EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO DO IT ALONE!' BE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN! BE
>> PROUD OF OUR TROOPS!! SUPPORT THEM!!! SUPPORT AMERICA SO THAT IN THE
>> FUTURE OUR CHILDREN WILL NEVER HAVE TO CLOSE THEIR BLINDS...'
>>
>> This should be printed in every newspaper and posted in every school
>> in America . Of course that won't happen so we'll use the Internet.
>>
>> If
>> your blinds are closed, do nothing with this email.
>>
>> If they are open
>> I do not need to tell you what to do.

I confess I love Outlet Shopping!


Yey so today El Hub and I went to the outlets. I purchased MAC Charged Waters at the Cosmetics Company Store aka CCO the other day and I grabbed the wrong one so I went to exchange it I ended up with Youth Aura one hopefully I like it!(crossing fingers) I have super oily skin yuck I hate it I wish it was normal grr! Anyways I was so glad I went today the SAs there are super nice and helpful...yey for Hagerstown CCO...so the SA told me I could return some items I purchased that made me break out horribly (Clinique 3-Step may work on others not on me!)I didn't know I could return them I had already count them as a loss so that was a huge blessing! I didn't buy anything today as I did have a mini haul there 2 days ago. Heres a few things spotted at CCO that stood out:

MAC Pigments

Lark About, Cocomotion,Pinked Mauve, Reflects in Blackened Red

Lippies

Lots of slimshines and mattenes ,Viva Glam VI,Port Red - my love! Matte2Shadows among others And stuff from: Holiday07, Fafi, Novel Twist, Charged waters, Stylistics and MSFs

Moving on.....Had to go get El Hub from Bose store he knows I go crazy at CCO...my friends will testify!

El Hub needed some suits so we went to S&K and they had buy one get one free on everything we got 2 JonesNewYork suits for $300. El Hub is gonna look soo handsome in his ne suits. BOGO Yet another blessing God is amaizing!

Then we went to yet another Beauty store now I don't frequent this one because they only carry Lancome and while I like their products there's more variety at CCO. El hub came with me to Designer Fragances and Cosmetics they had tons of big name perfumes like Armani. A sale sign caught my eye that said $4.99 they had Juicy Tubes and Gelee Pots for 5 bucks also Color ID foundation a few shadows, blushes, eyeliners and a grey Hypnose. I picked up a mouse blush that was powdery to the touch and Color ID never tried it but 5 bucks for Lancome foundation I wasn't gonna pass! Then I headed to the back they had eyeshadow in pan form that came 2 to a pack for $1.99 yey! So I picked up 2 of them all of them came in packs of 2 of the same color except for one so I got 3 Lancome shadow colors for 4 bucks amazing! Here's the best part they fit a little snug but they fit into my MaC pro pan palette. I also found a cheek and lip tint for $1.99 I got a red one. If you can go to your outlet and check this sale out, can't beat it!

Here's a picture of the shadows I got and how it looks in my palette. They have good pigmentation the dark brown one is called Lezard it's darker than MaCs Expresso and though it looks a little matte has a slight shimmer to it. (I'm hoping to be able to use this on my brows) The one in the middle is Fog a frost like lavender very pretty. The last one at the bottom Russet to me comes very close to MaCs Barbie Loves MaC Beautyburst (I love this color) this color is perhaps a lighter version of this.

Excuse the low quality pic and lack of pics I'm blogging through iPhone won't let me email more than one pic. Being a newlywed means budget is tight but hey at least I have an iPhone!


Peace Out World till next time

August 9, 2008: Our Wedding Day

Everything was picture perfect on our wedding day! I could not and would not ask for more. Now I'm not going to lie I was a royal mess on the months prior to my wedding and particularlly on the last couple of weeks but on that BIG day morning I was numb to the world. It was like I was walking on a cloud I know it had to be God! That day I forgot about what anyone else was going to think or say. All that was in my mind was getting my dress on, getting to church and meeting my love. Afterall it was 5 years 8 months and 9 days in the making! I enjoyed my BIG day to the fullest! So for all you future brides to be stress all u want, because wether u want to or not stress WILL come. Just remember on that morning to relax and be a little selfish, take the day in, gaze into your lovers eyes and breathe. The day will be gone as soon as it came! Make the most of it and enjoy it!
