Birchbox: I'm running late on this month's box!

Back to school edition! (PS this was me testing out my instagram, ha)

The goods!

Here's the skinny on what I got this month:
oh, and a Schick hydro silk razor! :)

So far, the perfume smells pretty, but likely not something I'd wear. So far my favorite perfume from Birchbox has been Arquiste L'Etrog from my very first Birchbox. I'm actually a little behind on posting some reviews for these products. I need to be a better planner...I need to stop saying "I need to do this..." :)

Maternal Instincts: Care package for Katie

Since she got it today, I can share the photos now! :) I had some fun with it.
Snackfest: PB to go, Reese's Pieces, Cheez-its, gum and pretzels! 

I wrapped up Nerds!

And Spree!

Inside: temporary tattoos!

A big eraser!


A staple for Gameday.

See above :)

A Paddle :)

Jackson wanted to get in the box...


Apples to Apples in a can!

Elliot wanted to help too!
There were also some drinking straws (for soda), some scratch art stuff and pinwheels! I also wrote my best advice for college on a note and included it. I cannot believe that Katie is already in college! Tim and I started "dating" when I was 16, which means Katie was like 6. That means I've known her for 12 years. Some 66.667% of her life. Crazy how time flies.

Snacking at our house: WW Red Velvet Cupcakes

The ingredients!

So cute!

Big and fluffy. Makes 15!

So I tried these out last week. The cupcake part was awesome. The pudding for icing, tastes like pudding. It wasn't bad, just not my cup of tea. Here's how you do it:

1. Mix together 8ox of Diet Dr. Pepper with the cake mix.
2. Bake as usual (makes 15 cupcakes)
3. Make pudding as usual.
4. Top cooled cupcakes with pudding.
5. Enjoy for 4 old school WW points each.

Business trip: Mobile AL

Entering the city.

View from my room.

More of the view...

JACKPOT! Look at that hottie...

I'm shy and nerdy, so each night I ordered room service.

It was so yum!

At the conference we had an adorable milk and cookie break!

I participated in a team scavenger hunt as a team builder. The guy in the middle was the hotel  bartender. 

We had to find a U shaped chair.

and all fit on a treadmill!

Get in the pool

get out chalklines made!

Pose with the battleship (we cheated)...

Get our photo with the bar across the street.

and locate plastic Jesus (he's there)!
It was nice, but I hope next time my buddy Beth will come along :) Then I might be brave enough to leave my room at night haha!
