Many of you may have been wondering where the heck the Pollei family went, but really my priorities have been a little different this past month.

Blogging is not a relaxing activity for me, nor do I feel the need to inform everyone about every little thing going on in our lives because, frankly its probably boring to the rest of you. So I try to inform only the "necessary things." Although that can be a debatable topic, I do enjoy putting pictures up of my kiddos and updates that give the impression that we are all surviving the day to day life of the toddler world. The truth is, I do love being a mommy and wife and a stay at home maid, but this past month I finally followed through on a dream that has taken the back seat for a long time.

I am now a very excited and newly Certified Professional Makeup Artist. I just graduated from the Skin and Makeup Institute of Arizona. My course consisted of 80+ hours in all sorts and types of Makeup. It was a legit school program because I was constantly working on research projects and learning the history and science behind makeup. Including the replication of looks specifically from music videos, fashion designers (i.e. runway and print ads) movie makeup, and bridal makeup. I am also certified in airbrush. What is airbrush? Well it's basically the "new thing" although its not really that new, but is really the only thing that the big time makeup artist do. In fact most everyone you see on T.V, magazines, and in movies are all airbrushed. In short, it's a machine that spray's on your makeup. It's pretty sweet. If you don't airbrush these days you basically are not hirable, so that was a huge part of our makeup training.

So what do I plan on doing with this new certification? Anything and all things that I can. For now I am going to be breaking into the wedding scene and have already a few weddings lined up. So that is why I haven't been blogging, because I have been in school, finding babysitters to watch my kids, and playing with makeup virtually every day for the past 4 1/2 weeks. Yay for makeup!!!

Pictures of the kids and our latest happenings, will eventually get on here when I get around to it. Hope all is well.
