Smell my face

So yesterday Rob and I were in the car heading to a wedding reception/open house celebration.  I leaned over while he was driving and told him to smell my face cause I wanted to see if it smelled sweet.  LOL  So many things he could have said in response to that, but instead all he did was take a big whiff and tell me I smelled like cinnamon and he liked it!  Yes!  Thats what I was hoping for!  I found this diy face mask that was supposed to be amazing, so I tried it!
This mask is supposed to soothe swelling and redness in skin, along with helping to ease acne scars and prevent infection!  So easy to make and I had everything on hand too!

2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix it all together, apply to skin (I did it in little circular motions to exfoliate at the same time) and let it sit for 30 minutes.  That seems like a long time, but I just watched a show, tried not to scratch when it started itching a little bit, and then washed it all off!  It's not pretty when its on, but you feel so radiant when it all comes off.  It looks like you're glowing and you have this perfectly flushed skin like a professional just applied blush to you.  
Rob told me the next time I do it not to skimp on time cause he likes how it smells =)

2 years!

Today, Rob and I have been married for 2 years!  Here we are then:

















Awww.... we look so...um...the same-ish?  Who am I kidding, it's only been two years.  We're still relative newbies at this!  We celebrated first on Saturday night.  I have this awesome massage client that gave us a gift certificate to a restaurant in town called La Chene.  The service there was AMAZING!  Such a sweet server, host, busboys, everyone was great!  The food was great too!

Today we both got the day off, and started it right by sleeping in! <3  Then we got up and I got my anniversary present!!!  He got us tickets to go see the play Wicked next month!  I'm so excited!  I have been wanting to see that play for forever, and I just keep hearing everyone rave about it!  I love that Rob knows me!  I would prefer experiences for gifts, especially experiences we can both have.  Those memories will last far longer than any material thing he could ever give me... unless of course we are talking about diamonds.  Yes...diamonds are the exception... ha ha.
Then we made our way to Santa Monica.  I grew up in Southern California, and I had never been on the Ferris wheel at the pier, so that was the one thing I knew we had to do.  Everything else would just be bonus!


We kicked back and relaxed a bit... and took a few snapshots up there!




I absolutely love the faces we're making in this next one... soooo attractive!


Get a good laugh?  Good, cause the rest are kinda boring, but look at the hottie that was following me around all day...



Seriously, isn't he so handsome? 


 After strolling around for a bit, we grabbed a late lunch, and then we saw The Three Musketeers and then came home.  The movie was great, I think Milla Jovovitch is so stunning, though she was more cutsie in the movie than anything.  If you've seen the "original" with Chris O'Donnell, you'll basically know how it goes.  Same basic storyline, but slightly different.  Anyway, great day, great night, I hope the next year brings us many joys and very few trials!
