A few of my recent favorite things

Well, I really like reading other peoples *favorite things*. Unfortunately the one gal that sometimes blogged about some of her favorite things bumped me off her blog-- oh well. So now I share just a few of my newish finds.
* the bodycology bubble bath is the most satisfying bubble bath I've used in my awesome bath tub.
*skintiment in-shower shaving lotion, or maybe moisturizing lotion makes my legs nice and smooth and nice to sleep with rather than the prickly alternative.
*Boogie wipes I found these at Walmart and maybe even at Maceys. They are grape scented baby wipes. My little friend seemed to not mind being cleaned up with these wipes. First time I used them on Jack, he wanted to put them in his mouth. Thankfully, they don't have any flavor because that would cause more problems than they solve.
There ya have it, a few things to try upon my happy recommendation.

Day 17 – your favorite website

hummm, thats a toughie.  I do love Facebook and have been able to catch up with so many friends from the past.  I also love for recipes and recipe reviews, as well as
I also love blogs that teach me things or inspire me, but I really LOVE blogs of my friends and family.  It feels so great to know more what is going on in their lives.

Getting ready for woman's conference

Thursday was the prep day for BYU s woman's conference. I was there from 9:30-2:00 and again from 5:30- umm 8:30? I came home tired and sore. The evening was spent winding a million sticks with the crocheen thread. We had a lot to do and not many came--- sorry gotta finish later. Baby is here

Im back.  So when not many came, I called my troops in.  Joseph and Jacob came even though it might be awkward for them being the only males there.  Aubrey was with me already.  As we described and got into the project Jacob realized there was a better way to accomplish the task.  He and Joseph went back for the drill. They left about 8 for the promised pay off, and Aub and I stayed until the job was finished.  It was a long good day.

Joseph winding string on the popsicle stick

Jacob figured a drill was the answer

The reward was cafe rio

Day 16 – a song that makes you cry

I had to put this on my auto play playlist.  Sorry Camille for the auto start :) I couldnt figure out how to do a link from youtube.
Hold on my heart from Genesis
I usually cant get through this song with out tearing up.  A dearly loved friend, who has had more broken hearts than I care to count, told me once that this is a song about him.  Nobody should be alone.  No one deserves to be so hurt

Me and a new friend, day 15

Ive been feeling a little sheepish about this post.  Its supposed to be a picture of a new friend and me.  A friend that I have made this year.  I'm not confident enough to ask any of my new friends if I can snap a picture, so I decided Id write about the new friend I have found in Kale.  Yes, the vegetable. 
Aubrey works at a smoothy place and they make green smoothies.   I've come to like them, because its a great easy way to make sure I get my 5 a day in.  Though I always use coupons, they are still kinda pricey, so sometimes I make my own green smoothies at home.  Start with a handful of raw spinach, a few little handfuls of kale (just the curly part, not the stems) any fruit, Ive used a frozen bag combo from Costco, and  a little sweetener.  Aub uses agave, I often use splenda.  Add in enough water and a little ice and blend as smooth as your machine will get it.  Not bad drinking Id say. 
I do have a few new real people friends this year, honestly.  But I guess my closest new friend is really a veggie : /

2 thoughts

Two thoughts,
First, I miss doing a photo of the day entry, (even though I still to to finish uploading photos from December on my other blog)  so I might do some "POTD" posts on this blog.

Second thought, be warned that when you go into a store with such a sign, the workers may be a little up tight and slow and rude.  sheesh!!!
