II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Okay, so...how many of you recognize this weapon I have pictured here? Yes, that's right...it's an eyelash curler. Weapon? you ask. Well, let me just TELL you! Thursday I hosted a Pampered Chef party and while I was running around like a chicken-with-my-head-cut-off trying to get everything ready and cleaned, I also had to try to get MySelf ready....so, here I am...in the bathroom standing in front of the sink--Matt's in the shower behind me and I am furiously putting my make up on so I can be at least presentable when my consultant arrives. I grab my eyelash curler As Always....
As a matter of fact...let me just stray from this first story for a second and tell you all that I actually had my eyelash curler out just the day before that so I could take a picture of it and put it on my blog and tell you all about how much I LOVE that thing and how that EVERYONE should have one and use it DAILY because it really makes a HUGE difference in the way your lashes look. Boy...if I'd only known then what I know now about WHAT a difference it can make!
Okay..so back to the first story...I grab my curler, put it on my left eyelashes, squeeze together and count to five. I release...and ta-dah! perfect! long, thick-looking curled lashes. Now, for the right eye. I put in on there, squeeze and then WHAT THE HECK??? My bleeping fingers twisted and t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-ch ALL MY EYELASHES JUST RIPPED RIGHT OUT!!!! I look down at the curler and there are all of my long, thick-looking eyelashes laying there on the little rubber thingy! I look in the mirror and start sobbing. I look like a FREAK! Okay..I know that is bad to say...but really, that's what I thought. So...Matt's still there in the shower and I tell him what happened through my tears and he starts CRACKING UP! Hardy-har-har! That of course makes me cry even harder. So, I eventually quit crying, re-apply my make up and attempt to draw on some fake eyelashes onto my eyelid. Finally, I just fixed my hair so that it would lay aross my face and cover my eye so you couldn't see it. Then I just PRAYED to GOD that eyelashes grow...!?!?!
So...for your viewing entertainment...here is a picture of the "new" me.

OH MY GOSH!!! Are you serious????

That is horrible!! But...on the good side...you did make me want to go out and buy an eyelash curler. I will be sure to be VERY careful!!

P.S.-what brand of mascara do you use?

KC said...

I use one everyday, and have never had this happen....I'm sorry Jen, when I was reading this, and read about Matt's reaction...well, honestly...I about peed my pants from laughing so hard!!!! :)

I do love ya girl, and I feel your pain, but girl, you had me cracking up! I can't believe that happened. I don't know what I would do. I think I would FREAK!

One good tip. When you use your curler, make sure you have cleaned any "waterproof" mascara off of your lashes, or it sticks really bad and hurts. :) Love ya Jen!

If you had a PC party this month, then you were able to get Cookware at 60% off! Woo-Hoo! What all did you get???
I love my Executive Non-Stick cookware. I use my saute pan everyday! I make scrambled eggs in it, stirring it with my Small Mix N Scraper, and I never use oil. It doesn't stick at all. What is left in the pan, after it cools, just all flakes loose and I can dump it in the trash and wipe it out with a soapy rag. It is so easy! I also use it to make pancakes. Again, no oil, and the pancakes do not stick at all! I love my PC Cookware!
