Nice Weekends

This weekend was my weekend off and I try to spend those weekends in Lexington with Cory. This weekend we met up Friday night for the Pride Parade in Louisville. This year seemed a little bit more rowdy than normal, at least there were more flying candy, beads, and frisbees (yes, frisbees!) than I remember. I love going to Louisville’s Pride Parade because it’s always so inspiring to see people out being themselves. I’m not sure why gay marriage is still an issue but I’m happy to be out supporting people who deserve the same rights that I take for granted.

Saturday we got a few things done, napped (my favorite thing to do these days), I went to the MAC counter and bought a new lipstick, lip liner, and eye brow makeup, and we went to see “Before Midnight” at the Kentucky Theater. Quite honestly, I’m still thinking about it. I haven’t seen a good movie like that in a long time. It made me cry a couple times and it had a really sad tone but it was really good.

Good makeup days

Tuesday I had some down time for the first time in…forever! So I decided to play around with my makeup. I felt inspired by a tutorial I watched earlier in the day on winged eyeliner. Seriously, I’ve tried doing this technique several times in the past and it always looked like a kid drew the line. I was determined to get it right, preferably before it went out of style, and I finally got it… at least by my standards. heh. :D

Hanson

If you know me, you know I’m a die hard Hanson fan! They released a new album called “Anthem” this week. This is the first album since I’ve been a fan that I haven’t listened to the music on the album before it was released aside from the single — not even snippets. It was like Christmas because I had all these new songs to listen to. I’ve only listened to it once all the way through but I know it will grow on me. I’m happy they’re still making music and I’ve been blessed to see them as many times as I have in the past. Is it October yet? :D
