Glittered Birthday

Hello Sunday! How did you get here so quickly? Do I really have to go back to work in the morning!?

I popped over to Just Us Girls only to find out that a trip to the Dollar Tree was mandatory. Just a note...when the video states that you have to use CREAM not GEL shaving cream... they mean it. Don't tell my husband but I wasted a paper plate full of his gel shaving cream....I thought...well - it MIGHT WORK. I'm here to tell you it doesn't! I am happy to announce that the really cheap cream style shaving goo from Dollar Tree works just fine.
