electricity is on at our new casa... but not the gas and it's absolutely freezing! good thing i have sweaters i bought on mine and danielle's last thrifting excursion and my Dolce Vita lip gloss by NARS (i love the shade!!! and smooth feeling of fancy lip gloss) thanks to sweet Claire {one of the christmas gifts she spoiled me with}!

this perfect lip gloss was actually inspired by the 1960 Fellini film. i love that and my girl claire for the most perfect gift! {true story: when i met claire, i couldn't stop staring at her flawless skin. besides the fact that she's oh-my-gosh pretty, her skin was so smooth! -unlike mine- she shared her secret with me: Airflash Spray Foundation by Dior. i'm more of your drug store make-up girl but i should have known with claire's shoe style, she's fancier. Now thanks to her, i am too!}

i've gone two days without a shower and since our move we've been living in a motel without a fridge or microwave so that's 10 + days where my diet has consisted of only the greasiest of fast foods... ugh! i can feel i've easily gained 10 pounds. the lip gloss makes me feel prettier.

but hopefully hopefully tonight everything will be FINALLY settled and we'll spend our first night in our new home... in fact, gas man AND cable guy just got here! hurray!!!

thank-you for all your support, well wishes, lovely comments & patience! i can't wait to be back to regular blogging/reading xoxo

how have YOU been? any exciting news i've missed out on? i'd love to hear! tell me in the comments or link to your blog post please!

nothing new here, but I miss you! and i love that sweater a lot :)

Claudia said...

hurray! glad to hear you're doing good!

Cassie said...

Love the colour of that lip-gloss, suits you perfectly.

Hoping that your gas and cable are all now sorted too.


Fallon said...

Goodie for you! How nice it must feel to know you are almost home :)

Claire Kiefer said...

You're so very sweet. :) Dior Airflash makes anyone's skin look like a doll's--promise. Too bad I just ran out of mine and so in the meantime I'm wearing regular foundation that doesn't work miracles.

And I'm so happy you love your lip gloss! I love Nars lip gloss and when I saw they had Dolce Vita, I tried it on and LOVED the color and it was the very first Christmas gift I bought this year. :)

HAPPY you're moved in and awaiting wonderful things like cable and gas and can't wait to chat with you when you're comfortably hanging out in your new living room.

And talk about beautiful--you are a stunner! But everyone already knows that. And like your twinkie and your daddy said--you could use ten pounds!! :)

rachel said...

the lip gloss is so pretty! I hope all goes well with your move :)

Kimbirdy said...

oh you have been through so much with this move!! i hope, when everything settles down and you have all your utilities, you do something extra nice for yourself, like a loooong hot bath and then a fancy evening out or something. stay strong sister!

Jen said...

Oh my gosh, I agree that lip gloss is perfect -- especially with your skin tone. Beautifully pretty.

I remember turning utilities on in our new house when we got it. Thankfully it was summer, and they had everything turned on when we moved in, but yikes it's a bit stressful! I hope everything gets set up soon.

Ashlee said...

so excited for you and your hubby.

can't wait to see how things come together in your new home!

Faiza said...

micaela your inside is so stunning and shines through your gorgeous outside as well. you make me smile!

Katyha said...

I know what it feels like without a shower...so I'm glad you will have it soon. Can't wait to see your little castle :D

Cole said...

My favorite lip gloss is NARS too but I can't remember the name.
I feel you on the eating fast food, we've been in that boat for two months now and it doesn't look like there's an end in sight considering that we have to wait until our kitchens are combined to have a real kitchen.

fiancee, i kid you not, when i was looking through my reader i saw the first picture and thought, "that looks like the sweater micaela got at estatre specialists." ha! i was right!

i got your sweet postcard today. i miss like crazy times 100!

i'm glad things are coming together for you guys.

love you!

Annie Cristina said...

I adore NARS lip glosses. And their "Orgasm" blush is amazing. I mean, how could it not be, with a name like that? ;)

Hope you get settled in soon! xoxo

Erin said...

Em is coming home to visit, 4 weeks from today!!! That's what I'm excited about. So, so, so excited.

It's good to have you back. Especially looking so lovely in that fancy lip-gloss! xo

Lauryn said...

I think it's very adventurous and romantic that you two have been living out of a hotel while you're waiting for your new home to come together. Think of the stories you can tell your grandkids one day :) hehe

Anna said...

i love how a little lip gloss can make you feel so much better. you look lovely.

congrats on your new move back to TX! woohoo! hope things are going smoothly for you!

Tiffany said...
