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…
