Take a Chance

Last Saturday was the H's and my sixth wedding anniversary, which seemed like a good excuse to update my pathetically aged fragrance collection. I chose the new Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel. Chance eau Fraiche smells pretty amazing too. I wish there was a scratch and sniff feature on Blogger. But trust me. Very heady stuff.

Have You Tried This Yet?

Eating Trader Joe's peanut butter was always a guilty pleasure, while eating their almond butter was pure torture. But pair those almonds with some roasted flaxseeds, and I suddenly don't miss the peanuts in my butter (or in my PB&J) one single bit. It's really yummy on bananas. And the kids like it too. So there you go.

I Have Sinned

Confession time: I fell off the Bullseye wagon, and sprang for a semi-pricey, 4-step skincare regimen. Again. My favorite step? This serum. Oh my gosh. This serum. I already love it, and it's not supposed to really kick in for two more months. Feels good to feel zero remorse. Finally.

Loving Laura

"Laura lived in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her big sister Mary, her baby sister Carrie, and their good old bulldog Jack." Snook and I are really enjoying reading our way through the My First Little House Books series, in no particular order. She seems enthralled by the depiction of life in simpler times. I'm just so happy that she's enthralled with any stories in which the heroine isn't wearing a crown.
