New Beauty Products

So, since I am sitting at my laptop on my 7th (8th is tomorrow and 10th for the year) snow day I decided I am going to share a few new beauty products that I have been using and loving lately. If you know me well then you know I LOVE new beauty finds. It was so bad that in college my sorority sisters would not let me go to the beauty aisle at Walmart. Haha! OK, so the first is a new teasing brush that I saw someone use on a beauty blog. It's a simple Conair brush that I purchased at Walgreens for around $3.oo.
I posted this on Twitter and said that I have had senator's wife hair since I purchased it. Let's just say that I am serious! There was a point that I felt like maybe I should comb a little of the tease out because my hair was SO big. That means A LOT coming from me! I LOVE BIG HAIR!!!

The second product that I am loving recently is Banana Boat's Summer Color, which is a self tanner.
I bought this at Ulta and it was around $7.00 or $8.00, which is what I normally pay for drug store self tanners. This tanner is different though. It is AMAZING!!! One of the office ladies recommend it and now I have to pass this little jewel along! Hope you choose to try these goodies and love them!

Snow Day #4 and counting.

I am writing this post at 11:28 on a school night because we have yet another snow day tomorrow. Tomorrow will make snow day number 4. That's right ladies and gents we have ZERO built in days and have already taken 4. As you can probably tell I am SUPER excited about attending school well into July! Really though, I have NEVER went to school on my birthday (June 8th) and I think we actually may get there, which is a total bummer(we are at May 30th as of tomorrow). I promise that this post will not be all neggie nancy. This past weekend Bixby's NHS held their annual Winter Ball. It is quite the soiree. I LOVE fancy smancy dances because the kids get all dressed up and let's be honest it's the only time when I get to see some of them in anything other than sweats and hoodies. It was held at the Oklahoma Aquarium. It's a weird thing attending high school dances as an adult. If you know me you know that I like to get my booty shake on and it's hard to fight the temptation of cutting a rug! I was on ticket duty, which is my fave job, because I get to see all the kids and in their fancy pants! Have I ever expressed how beautiful I think my students are? I mean that may sound a little odd coming from one of their teachers but seriously, Bixby has some stunning kiddos! Not only are the pretty they are extremely smart and have huge personality! Why, yes, I do LOVE my job and the kids I get to work with! HAHA!!
I haven't ventured out and taken any "snoklahoma" pictures yet, hopefully tomorrow! I have added some pictures of the Winter Ball for your viewing pleasure though! Have a great break from life this week! Stay warm and safe!!!

Beautiful!!They were at their picture taking level! Ha! I told them to get used to it if they wanted women around!
Like I said STUNNING!!!
I only talked two into wearing bow ties! Not quite where I want it but it's a good start if you ask me!!
They wanted to do "that one sorority pose!" HAHA!!! Love them!!!
