ELF Makeup Line

Have you seen the new ELF makeup line at Target?
No, it has nothing to do with Christmas Elves :)

ELF: Eyes Lips Face and their philosophy:
"e.l.f.’s philosophy is that beauty comes from within and it's our goal to enable every woman to look and feel her personal best through the perfect blend of both the inner and outer person. With that goal in mind, e.l.f. cosmetics was born – a line of simple, luxurious, problem-solution tools that allow you to showcase and believe in your unique, personal beauty. Our cosmetics are designed to improve and accentuate the individual, not hide her away.

We at e.l.f. believe that innovative technology, quality ingredients and superb delivery systems should not be limited to prestige retailers. Every woman should have the opportunity to participate in innovation, without sacrificing her budget. We hope you agree and invite you to experience e.l.f.’s revolutionary, value-priced cosmetics and the proven results they offer."
It is really inexpensive and I LOVE their stuff.
I own and highly recommend the following ELF items:

$3 blush brush - perfect applicator
 $3 Blush - great colors and easy application
 $1 Lipstick - long lasting
Here's a link to more ELF products at Target
It's fun to try out new colors or shades when they are so inexpensive!

Cranberry Chili Street Tacos

My dinner plans included this recipe from Whipper Berry recently.
Here is my version:
No avacados or cabbage
 My sauce was pretty spicy so I added a diet coke/brown sugar blend to the shredded pork 
instead of the chili mixture.
 Toppings: + shredded cheese
 Cranberry chili  sauce from the slow cooker

Planning a Visit to Santa Claus, IN

I told my class all about Santa Claus, IN
and they were dying to hear more.
So I had them plan a pretend trip!
We reviewed all the information about the town on their sites
and I told them stories about the area.
Here's what we came up with:
 My class wants me to take them on a field trip to Indiana!
Now that would be fun! :)
