Well that’s a new spot to lay (inside of the coffee table). My little hunny is so uncomfortable with arthritis / a torn ligament and only seems to want to lay on hard surfaces. 

Weekend Recap

Friday:

After work, Pat and I took the train to NYC for the Billy Joel concert.  When we got to NYC, we HAD to get some pizza first. Let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS. We then walked over to the concert.  Funny little story: Our tickets had a B next to the seat section. When we got into the concert and were told where our seats were, an older guy told Pat, “B stands for bar stool”, to which Pat laughed and said, “oh yeah, do they come with a bar too?”. They both laughed and we proceeded to our seats, which were BAR STOOLS!!  (You will see a picture below.)  I have NEVER been to a concert where some of the seats were bar stools.  I think everyone that was in our section questioned if they were really our seats and if they were in the right area because they never heard of it either.  I must say though, we really liked the seats. For one, we didn’t have to constantly get up to let people by to go to the bathroom, like you often do in concerts. Also, we had a little bar like table in front of us to rest drinks on, and there was a bar with drinks and food right behind us with no line.  I would definitely sit in a section like that again.

The concert was AWESOME!!    At one point in the show, AC/DC came on stage with Billy Joel!!

You can watch a video of it here:

As with every other Billy Joel concert I have been to, it was a great time.

We took the 11:18 train back to NJ, which got us back to NJ at 12:40 or so.  We then had a 20 min. ride home from the train station.  On the way home, we stopped at Dunkin Donuts because I had wanted a coffee from there all night. So many people always say that can’t have coffee after a certain time at night or they aren’t able to sleep.. NOT this girl!  :-)  I can drink coffee shortly before bed and have no problem at all going to sleep. Then again, I never really drink coffee to wake me up, I just drink it because I like the taste.

Random Friday

Hey guys!

Happpppy Friday!

- Lately I have been watching lots and lots of beauty how to / review videos on You Tube. I definitely don’t wear much makeup (most days during the week just mascara) but I find them so interesting.  I also love to hear reviews about products that I may not have otherwise known about.

My favorite You Tubers to watch have been the following:

        Magdalena Teresa

        Jaclyn Hill

        MakeupByAlli

        essiebutton

- I have been doing a lot of research about the Clarisonic Mia 2.

untitled

I never had much of a desire for one, but lately the more things I hear about it, the more I want one. There are so many great reviews about it and the wonderful effect it has on the skin. The only thing I don’t like about it —> the price.  Do any of you guys have one?  Would you recommend it? I am also not sure what type of brush head I should get.  I have somewhat sensitive skin and I believe they all come withe the sensitive head brush, but I also heard mixed reviews about the deep pore cleansing brush.

- Last week Pat and I started watching True Detective.

1654715_660263474015663_258038318_o

The first episode was a little slow moving, so I was not sure if we would like it, but we’re now up to the 5th or 6th episode and like it a lot.

- Have you guys heard of the new line of Crest toothpaste .. Be Adventurous - Mint Chocolate?

crestbe-adventurous-mint-chocolate-trek-toothpaste

When I first heard of it, I thought, ewww that’s strange.  The more I think about it though, the more intrigued I am about how it tastes. I love the mint / chocolate combo, but I am just not sure how it would be when it comes to toothpaste.

Tell me something random!

Have a great night and weekend!!
