I stumbled across a link awhile back on one of my friend's blogs to Sheer Miracle. I have been wanting to try mineral makeup ever since BareMinerals makeup came out but it was always so expensive. So when I came across this website I was excited. Sheer Miracle sells premium mineral makeup at prices I can afford. It is also Bismuth Oxychloride free which causes itchy skin and breakouts (which may of the other brands include), so big bonus to me since I have sensitive skin.
A little background information on me. I was a Clinque consultant for many years and at the time loved their products. Towards the end of working for Clinique I felt that they no longer cared about the client only making money and adding more and more products for them to slather on their faces which none of them needed. I have since moved on trying different makeup lines still not finding the right one.
I am embarking on a new possible career in makeup starting this weekend and look forward to the challenge. I will be a freelance makeup artist. For now I will be using makeup the model brings me but hope to purchase a full line of Sheer Miracle and to even start selling it.
I hope this new found Sheer Miracle will be the answer to my needs. I will let you all know the results!

After a week of fussing, clinging, screaming and not sleeping we have a tooth!! It is his lower left front tooth and you can barley see it but can definitely feel it. Hopefully we can all get some sleep now. I am tired of getting up 3-5 times a night. I will post pictures once it is in further and will actually show up in a pic.

Once again my friends Sarah and Kyle Smidt at Clashing Collaborations out did themselves. Jameson was utterly uncooperative during the photo shoot so I figured we would only get a handful of decent photos. Was I wrong! There are over 100 amazing photos :) You can check all of them out here and I included a few of my favorites below. Enjoy!!

Jameson was 6 months on July 4th...he has changed so much in just these few months.
His physical development is amazing...He has gone from 6lb 2oz and 18.75in to 15lb 5oz and 26.2in!
Of course there are the many milestones he has met a long the way such as sitting unassisted, rolling over, smiling, giggling, eating solid food, grabbing things (on purpose), putting everything in his mouth, and many many more.
But today was a big milestone event for me and made me cry harder than the first time I dropped him off to go back to work. When I took him to grandma's this morning he cried when I handed him over...he wanted his mommy and reached for me! It made me feel amazing and despicable for leaving him all at the same time. I miss him so much!
Another big change is happening starting today I will no longer be pumping breast milk while at work. I made my 6 month exclusive breastfeeding goal and I am satisfied. I wish I could have gone longer but my body just doesn't seem to want to cooperate and the stress of the last couple of weeks trying to increase my supply actually made it worse. I still plan (attempt) to breastfeed when I am home with him but my time spent in the electrical closet at work is officially over! It is a bittersweet ending.
Jameson at One day old!
Jameson at 6 months!
