Weekend Pics | Why Girls Are Weird

Weekend Pics

So a couple of pictures from my blogger weekend:

Technically this pic is illegal.  We went into Sephora and I told the lady working there that I wanted to try red lips.  I've always been scared to but I totally wanted to try them out.  So after she gave Sara and me red lips we wanted to take a picture.  Right afterwards another salesperson there told us we weren't supposed to be taking pics.  Oops.

We found this hat and mittens at H&M and of course we wanted to see what a Russian prostitute looks like.  Sara was kind enough to show us.  Thanks Sara.

Amy, me and Sara.  Sadly I realized later that we didn't take a picture when Anna was still with us.  Which means, of course, we need to have a sequel get together.

I am officially starting to feel stressed out.  I forgot what working normal work hours feels like.  Well, not normal, since I'm not 9-5 or anything, but normal as in more than 7.  I went from not working at all for 6 months to working anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a week to now working around 30.  The money will be nice but being busy again is kind of a shock to my system.  I will say that I'm thankful to be working for companies that give their employees the holidays off.  Both Maurices and Best Buy are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Caribou was always open EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.  As if people can't make coffee in their coffee pots for two days out of the year.  Seriously.

Yesterday was my first day on the floor at Best Buy.  I basically shadowed some different people and learned way too much in way too small of an amount of time.  My main area will be in gaming which is actually kind of funny considering I only really like to play old school Nintendo and Sega.  But I'm excited to be there and the extra money will be very, very nice.

Anyway!  Even though the blogger potluck didn't happen I still made Heavenly Hash because I had the makings for it.  I've been eating it like crazy because I swear, it is SO good.  Basically, all you do is take a bag of mini marshmallows and mix it together with a pint of sour cream.  Then add whatever canned fruit you want.  I made mine with pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges and maraschino cherries.  Oh my gosh SO GOOD.  Not kidding.  Try it.

One more thing before I get my butt in gear.  I'm being featured over at Adventures in Love and Happiness.  The series is called Real People in Love and this one's all about Dustin and me!  So please go over and check it out!

Okay, I am off to try to complete some of the homework I have to do and work on NaNo.  Yikes.

More soon!

We make that every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas but we call it Ambrosia! It rocks my world, we don't mess with our recipe, sour cream, mini marshmallows, mandarin oranges, coconut and pineapple (sometimes I add very finely chopped walnuts). I could eat it by the bucket full.

I like the red lipstick & I like your friends nail polish too!

I worked for Albertsons (Grocery store) for 9 years, nights weekends and holidays, I am also in the thankful boat for going on 2years now of Holidays OFF. P.s. Places like Caribou should be closed! That's ridic!

Totally loving your illegal picture! ;)


Smart Ass Sara

@Erika- it's Red Wine nail polish from Avon. My favorite EVER. :)

If a friend can't show you what a Russian prostitute looks like- what good are they?? Matt says I should have bought the hat. THAT is why we don't shop together.

Dancing Branflake

You guys are so hilarious! And taking photos at Sephora is illegal? I had no clue! Weird. They are so pretentious.

Cafe Fashionista

I think that you should adopt red lipstick as your new trademark - it looks amazing on you, Krysten! :)

Emily Jane

Agreed, it looks gorgeous! Sounds like so much fun :)


at the top of this post I began to wonder if I had already read it (you know, cause Sara had the same pics and all)...

Hopefully the money will get you through the stress of working!

Jessie Szmanda

Teenage Bride

No pics in Sephora WHAT!!!! You go girl, way to break the rules


those are totally fun photos! love them. and hang in there with all that busyness! i know i always struggle with that whole grass + other side = greener. i'm unemployed right now and going a little bit crazy with nothing productive to do. but i know once i get a full time job i'll miss these calm, relaxing days. money is pretty necessary though. alas! :)

T @ Poppy Place

Looks like you girls had a whole lot of fun and the red lips, gorgeous :)

My son is working as a seasonal employee at Best Buy too! He just got his hours for Black Friday, 4:30am - 3pm.

It is funny he has been in Uni in England for 3 years and as we never shopped Black Friday he had really no clue about it until 6 weeks ago.

Don't be too stressed!

Have a lovely day, T. :)


I LOVE the red lips!


Adorable photos!

Glad your new job is going well


So wait, whats stopping people from taking pics outside the store? I'm confused by the illegal use of cameras... LOL

Sandy a la Mode

you gals look gorgeous!! off to check out your feature now!! :)


WHY no pictures...? that's terribly stupid. i def won't be shopping at sephora.

have a calming cup of tea while you're writing to take the edge off the stress, dear :]



Look at those gorgeous ladies! :) Definitely good times at the MOA!

It's hard to get used to more hours. I went from 30 to 40 2 months ago and it was definitely a shock to the system lol. I shouldn't complain, but I hear ya. I'm used to working full time again and am not sure what I'll do with all my spare time when I go back to my FTE.

Enjoy the extra money! Maybe get that $30 Dior lipstick ;) haha


Such adorable pix! I can't believe taking photos in Sephora isn't allowed! That is the weirdest policy. (And thanks for the awesome chuckle over the Russian prostitute, I'm glad I know now too! :))

kelli g. { bug miscellany }

Those red lips are HOT! It should be a regular color for you. :)

The first few days on a job are always the most rough, learning everything and feeling like the newbie. I hope you start feeling more comfortable there soon!

Amber Blue Bird

I think you should do red lips more often!

Heavenly hash?!...mmm I'm not sold.

Kristin Hjellegjerde

Welcome to the working world again. Doesn't it completely suck! Groan. I'm still in the office and wondering what happened to the sun. Sigh.

I didn't realize you weren't allowed to take pics in Sephora with the makeup on? The hell? Anyway, you girls look ADORABLE! How fun to have a bloggy girl meet-up!
