Sharing Things I Like

I think I'm supposed to be somewhere today. I have this nagging feeling that I have an appointment, or that some thing is due at school, or that someone needs me today and I can't remember what it is!
I've checked the calendar, my little notebook, the pad of paper by the phone and nothing is there. Is there a deadline I'm missing? I can't get rid of this nagging feeling. Hmmm...
Does this ever happen to you?

Well, let me go in a completely different direction from my normal blog entries and share some things that I truly enjoy. None of these items were gifts, etc. I actually bought them with my own piggy-bank money and am so happy with them. I think my blog pals should know about them.
First off, let me tell ya', I am a lipstick junkie. I'm constantly searching for the perfect lipstick. And here's my latest find. L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Lipcolor.
Oh yeah! I've purchased 2 of these and I'm going back for more. The compact is also a little mirror! I prefer the wand applicator, not the lip-stick. (The front of the display clarifies which is which.) Try it. Tell me what you think. (And Jenboglass, you can come up with all the lipstick color names you want. I happen to like your idea of "Gingery Firemaiden".)

Next item, and this is for the 35-and-over crowd; Anti-Wrinkle cream. (Which led my brother-in-law to ask "Why isn't there and Uncle Wrinkle cream?" That's now his nickname. His name is Rick, so it fits.)
I'm also a junkie for wrinkle-be-gone creams and I've found a good one. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. How intense does that sound?!? It smells great and it appears to be working very well. I don't have any before & after pictures, sorry.
Now, like most creams, this seems spendy to me, and I know that stores like Walgreen's and Rite-Aid have their own versions. In these tough times I'm not above getting the 'generic' version. I know for a fact that Walgreen's version comes in the beautiful red jar as well. And that it smells great too. I'm just saying.

Now here's one for everyone, a laundry detergent. Arm & Hammer Plus Oxy Clean. It works so-o-o well! And the Spring Fresh smells great. (I'm big on smells you might have noticed. Something can be the best product around, but if it doesn't smell good I probably won't use it.)

So there you have it! If you try any of these things let me know what you thought.
Now, I still have that nagging feeling that I'm supposed to be somewhere else. Ugh. Well I'll find out sooner or later by receiving a phone call from someone whose annoyed or having my girls roll their eyes at me when I pick them up from school. It's so fun being a mom some days! ( Major eye roll...)

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
