Total Basset Case: April Favorites

April Favorites

May! Finally!
I love May, I really think it is one of my favorite months.  The sun is finally shining, it's warm and it's just a happy month.

But before we get too excited about May, let's talk about all the things from April that were great.

First and most exciting, Mister and I jumped the gun on flower planting and starting on the yard and I couldn't be happier.  I've said it before, I want our whole yard flowers.  Mister is with me on this and has done an excellent job mulching and getting our yard prepped for all the flowers I want.  

Also this gave us a chance to put our metal anniversaries gifts to use.
See if you can spot them ;)

Other favorites this month included this Mexican mac and cheese dish. Totally not on my diet or what I should be eating but we had friends over and it was necessary.

Old Navy...I feel like they go through spurts there where things are great and things are terrible.  I ordered a couple things online and they were TERRIBLE but then I went in the store and gave them a large chunk of my paycheck.
I picked up some great spring/summer weekend items but am lacking spring stuff to wear to work.  Does anyone have any good suggestions where to look?

I recently switched to using BareMinerals Bare Skin foundation.  I haven't been using it consistently enough to give it a full review but so far, I really like it!  I haven't used a liquid foundation in years so this is a whole new world for me.  I picked up a (knock off) beauty blender to make the process even easier.  

And those were my April let's do this, May!

Yay, flowers! And I've been using that foundation for a while and like it - but I'm a total beauty dunce, so I'm not sure my recommendation should count. Also I think you need to fill me in on what is/how do I use a beauty blender because I'm always up for easier makeup processes...

Old navy is definitely like that!! Kind of hit or miss when I stop in. But I haven't been in their store in a while! I love the basset garden stuff ;)

Old Navy is 100% hit or miss. The only hits I've had there lately are workout clothes. JCrew has some great spring stuff!!

LOVE the metal gift!! :) So perfect in your gorgeous yard. I use bare minerals powder and LOVE it, so hopefully their liquid foundation is just as great!
