Recovering / InstaFriday

Happy Friday friends.  

There always has to be reason for being MIA right? Well last Friday I had hernia surgery and let me tell you, I have never had surgery and I was really scared. I had no idea how I was going to react to anesthesia . I was wheeled back about 11 and by 1120 I was in recovery. Waking up is the weirdest thing. I hardly remeber a thing. I woke up with a nice pack on my belly, in pain and my hubby walking back to see me and a nurse asking me if I wanted to something to eat.
 It was outpatient so I was later that afternoon. That night and Saturday were awful. It is pain that I personally have never felt. I could not get up with assistance and to move basically hurt. 
Each day got better and better. I eventually quit taking the pain pills am able to move and walk more.
 My internal stiches healed enough to where I could sleep on my side and get up on my own. My outside stitches are healing and itching and hurt, but I  am able to do things.
 I am a week out and able to resume normal activity except swimming and working out until my follow up. Boo
So anyway, that is where I have been the last week. I am not the best blogger anyway and am still working in doing more posts. 
Where do you get your ideas to post?
Ok, back to InstaFriday. There are little pictures because I was flat on my back for a few days.
I am linking up with life rearranged.
I am coleyclark30 if you are not followering and would like too. I love to meet new people and new blogs.

Last Friday Kendric had his first sleepover campout.  He had a blast.

Summer fun. Our neighbors have a motor home that has 2 stories and 4 TV's. Really? Cadence and the neighbor girls relaxing in the cool air watching tv. Outside.

She loves to help me water the flowers.
I love a clean sink before I go to bed. Knowing in the morning I walk down to a clean kitchen makes me so happy. 
I really cannot sleep if my kitchen is a mess. 
Anybody else like this?

Happy weekend !

We had been in the car for almost 9 hours and we were ready to get out and get away from each other!

 I love drinking these greens everyday!

She loves helping me with my ab work.

It was the last day for VBS and it was a spy theme. Figuring out what God can do.

 How was your week?

The 4th

This was the first year we have not been in town over the 4th. We were in Ohio visiting my family . When we celebrate in Missiouri , we buy a ton of fireworks and love setting them off. In Ohio fireworks are illegal so we decided to go to a big fireworks show. There was a carnival and music and the best part was just relaxing and watching the most amazing fireworks. I could not get good pictures of the fireworks, but they were beautiful.
 We enjoyed awsome food and great company during the 4th.

How did you celebrate your 4th?

Happy Friday! This is the last day of vacation for us. So this Friday is bittersweet.  I love seeing everybody's pictures from the week.
I am linking up life rearranged. 

Birthday dinner for Cadence at red robin. 

Every year when we visit my parents we go  to the waterfall. It is crazy how different each year is.

Funny pose with Nana

Zoo day

I love this girl. It's been such a rough year for her and our family and am so Greatful for God each day that she is here.

Have a great long weekend and happy 4th of July.

I have tried so many brands of makeup and skin products, but I have found my favorites.

I love butterfly mascara from loreal. It adds so much length to my eyelashes. It's AMAZING! 

I love all the itworks products. The lip and eye cream. 

Have you heard of Rodan + Fields?  The only product I use right now is this. It exfoilats your skin. My friend Brooke is a consultant and her business has taken off. If you have problems with acne or deep lines or just want to take better care of your skin Rodan + Fields is the place to get products. They have the best selfless  tanner. If you are interested in finding out more visit Brooke's link.

Have you tried this? I LOVE it. I can feel the pulling of my pores. It is so easy to mix together. Just need organic raw apple cider viniger.
Apply it and wait for it to hard and cracked and then wipe off. Your face will be red for a bit, but goes away.

As far as a primer I like maybelines dream nude airform. It goes on nice and smooth. It does not look heavy or caked on.  This also has sunscreen in it. 

 I then apply this:

Loreal's true match mineral powder.  I wanted something light and something that would go well with foam.

 I use  the elf face bronzer.
This just gives off a suttle shimmer.

For my lips, I love baby lips lip glosses. You get the color, but not the lipstick feel. Perfect for going to the pool or running errands. 

Well there you have it. A few of my favorite products. 
 I get everything at Walgreens or target. 
The face mask I order through amazon.
The viniger comes from amazon or any grocery store.
Baby lips any store. I found mine at Target.

What are some if your favorites?
