A Bit of a Wrinkle...

Ok, I don't have any grey hair yet (I had hubs look at my roots this weekend), but OMG, this picture taken yesterday at the zoo makes me look ollllllllllllllllllllld...

I don't mind the freckles so much, I've grown to love them, but those wrinkles and that thin skin under my eyes need some work. And a lot of people don't tell you this, but most ladies get dark spots on their skin when they get pregnant - another hidden gem of pregnancy - and mine are most prominent on my forehead, of course.

So, give it to me ladies - what wrinkle products have you tried and have actually worked? I'm gonna buy something and do a before and after of the most recommended product and let you know, rather - see, what happens.



  1. Wendy Marie, you know that sun that you love so much? It has taken its toll on your skin...the best thing that you can do is choose a good daily care regimen and stick with it every day and use sunscreen!!! I'd hate for you to take a close up of my face. Of couse anybody's face would show lots of imperfections with such a good camera and at such a close up view. Stay away from me!!!! 8-)

  2. I have the SAME PROBLEMS!!!! Please let me know what you skin looks AWFUL!

  3. I love, love Mary Kay products for eyes and skin!

  4. I have no helpful advice, but I can't WAIT for the before & after -- I discovered a rather deep crevasse on my forehead this weekend. Grrrr!

  5. first i will say- not bad at all
    second i will tell you try the neocutis line. has worked wonders- i use the eye cream and the moisturizer at night (because it's heavy)

  6. I think you look great! Sorry, that's not helpful on the product front though. :)

  7. First, you do not look old. Second, I have those spots, and I've never even been pregnant before. LOL! My dermo said it's hormones and the sun. But still, I digress....

  8. you don't look old!!

    i love neutrogena eye creams.

  9. I have the same problem...however, you don't look old. You look Great!! :)

  10. i think you look beautiful! i'm 23 years old with no children & i have creases all around my eyes. how does this happen!? i think my consistent time in the sun, lack of care, squinting, smilling and rubbing them as hard as i can has done me no good. :(

    my sweet mother heard me say something about them one day and bought me neutrogena
    anti-oxidant age reverse eye cream. i don't know if its making any long term differences butafter a night of wearing it my eyes do feel better in the morning!

    good luck!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
