Life and Times of a Mommy(:

This Can’t Be Happening.

“Oh. My. Gosh!” were the only words that could describe the utter terror I felt when I ripped out half my eyebrow thanks to a lovely face mask I found on Pintrest Friday night. Yes. You read that right. I ripped out part of my eye brow. With a face mask. Found on Pintrest.

“What?! What did you do?” my husband asked from his spot on the other side of the room. As I explained his face went from horror to amusement to trying not to laugh as his wife stood over him on the verge of tears. Tears of pain and humiliation.

The mask I found was a DIY mask that had two ingredients: milk and unflavored gelatin. You mix a tablespoon or so of each, microwave it for a few seconds, and immediately apply it to your face. Once it hardens you peel it off. The thing said that it pulls out black heads and leaves your face baby butt smooth. I was all for this because I just had about 500 black heads pop up on my chin, nose, and forehead.

So it got hard (that’s what she said…sorry couldn’t resist), and I started pulling the mask off. Man, it was like waxing!! I pulled off a couple pieces next to my eyebrow and noticed a few hairs but ignored it. I got the stuff of my chin, most of my forehead, my nose, and a little off my jaw. (It wouldn’t harden on my jaw for some reason.) Then I went to pull it off of my eyebrow… Aaaaaaand there went half of it. In my hand. Needless to say, I didn’t go anywhere Saturday and the only reason I got out of my house Sunday was because my grandma needed me to come help her jump start her car. Which turned into a trip to the grocery store. Then I just thought “what the hell…might as well go to church…”. And I’m of course at work…

Thankfully no one has said anything about it unless I point it out. So, obviously I haven’t pointed it out to too many people. Just two of my best friends and my grandma. They were nice enough to not bust out laughing at me like my husband almost did… Guess it’s time to invest in a brow pencil… Hopefully I can’t screw that up to bad.

And for your viewing pleasure, my lovely missing eyebrow...

Day Sixteen

We are halfway to the end guys!! Woooo!!!! So today is something or someone you could definitely live without. Not this is an easy one. I could definitely live without Pintrest. (If you have never heard of this site or been on this site do not, I repeat DO NOT click on that link. You will be sucked in you will NEVER. LEAVE.

Reasons why I could do without Pintrest:

It’s addicting. Like seriously. It’s like someone injected meth into you every time you looked at the site so now you feel weird and incomplete without it. It’s like you find no color or happiness in the world without Pintrest. It’s craziness. Plus it has some amazing projects on there that look so fun. And money saving tips. And yummy food.

The projects and recipes. You will never, and I mean never, be able to recreate the beautiful masterpieces that you see. It’s impossible. My recipes just turn into unflattering masses of food. They may be delicious but the plate does not look near as good as those professional,edited pictures. The projects on the other hand. They just go horrible wrong. It’s depressing.

The amount of time wasted. I spend hours, HOURS on Pintrest. That time could be better spent thinking up fun things for you guys, or watching Supernatural, or reading a book. There are just so many other things I could be doing instead of looking at work out regimens hat make me tired just thinking about them, delicious looking food that will never turn out that way, and entirely too expensive clothes that I will never wear or be able to buy.

So. I could definitely do without Pintrest. It does nothing but depress me by causing unreal expectations when it comes to fashion, cooking, looking skinny, make up, and “ingenious” projects. Will I make the decision to beat my addiction? No, probably not. It’s just too amazing!!
