Why Is This Woman Smiling?

I admit with all honesty that I've bought far too many ridiculous items after seeing info-mercials, even though the products only work out approximately 10-20% of the time. Well, I've found something that absolutely works and I can never again live without this product. Ever. Never.Besides, I also HAVE MY NEW TEETH!

Allow me to introduce you to:

the "Dream Look Instant Eye Lift"

This is truly just about the best thing to hit the market since Spanx. I kid you not. Better, really, since they don't make you feel like you're in a Victorian corset. This is the closest you will ever get to an eye lift, minus the surgery and the big bucks. Mind you, it takes some practice to get them on right... And, you'll waste quite a few pairs before getting the hang of it, for where you place them on your own eyes to perfection, but these babies WORK. Besides, they guarantee their product. What more do you need?

I've actually been using them for 4 months (only for parties, dining out, and dinners with friends) and today I think I finally got them just right on my upper lids, which is not to say that they will look this good next time. It just takes practice, but I'm beginning to feel like a real kinda/sorta pro. Just don't put them on and ask your hubby if he notices anything different about your eyes. He won't.

So, today I had to make an appearance at the County Courthouse for jury duty at 8:30 AM and I got out of bed at 6:00 AM so I'd have enough time to do the whole eyes and makeup thing (which I DO NOT do on a daily basis). Whose court do you think I was in? Yes, that's right, the very court our best friend got beaten out of a judgeship for, by a mere 102 votes. His winning opponent was the judge doing all the speaking this morning, so I politely read my book on Kindle and kept my lips sealed. If I'd had my earplugs with me I'm pretty sure I would have used them, with discretion. When they called my name to go up to another criminal court for jury pool, I made the sign of the Cross and thanked my lucky stars as I made my exit. Dodged a bullet there.

This picture is after I took the little *wings* off of my eyes. It makes a huge difference to me. I also gave a set to my good friend and she's squealing over them too. She may have already bought them out. Luckily, she's been in the Bahamas with her hubby for 2 weeks, so I'm sure they have re-stocked by now.

So, since no jury duty, I then actually had a chance to come home and spend time stripping the fabric off this pair of Chippendale style stools we inherited from Mr. Snooty's parents. I'm having second doubts about doing this after googling the name of the company, Hickory Chair, Hickory, North Carolina. They make the most fabulous furniture. It has, so far, been a real witch to strip off fabric, staples, and brass tacks (layer after layer). Had I initially known what I was facing, I'd have run as fast as possible in the opposite direction. However, once I took the first big bite, I was basically committed. There was no turning back after that certain point.

Mr. Snoots thought the benches were *just fine* the way they were. Please. They were stained, covered in cat hair, cat throw-ups, and totally outdated. He is clearly not a visionary when it comes to decorating the home.. Or spending money to do so. I know. I did promise to marry him for better or worse. Zzzzzip my lip! But, he's lucky I had the sense not to spray paint them. Uh-Huh.

I'll give you an update as things progress. Also, I took the club chair to the upholsterer's and he said it might be a while. No worries. I have my new (old) $40.00 chair & ottoman from the consignment shop to get me through the interim. I did go with the polka dots but when I get that club chair back, I'm sending the other chair to be done in the tiny houndstooth pattern fabric.

You look fabulous!!!

ONLY 6.5-7 hours. I LOVELOVELOVE your way of thinking!! We should be in Wichita Falls for this week and maybe next. Never really too sure of anything! The 7-11s we are remodeling are owned by an outfit out your way. So it looks like we will be somewhere in TX for a while. If you get a wild hair, come on up to Wichita Falls! But if not, I'll keep in touch about where we are and we will get together at some point!! :)

I'm looking to get out of here by next Monday, when they start replacing all of our windows. After the whole roofing trauma, I'm getting out of Dodge for this. I just don't need the stress...
