So they order home try-on frame kits. This was the next best thing to spending a million dollars on one ticket to the Justin Timberlake concert and 1/2 a million dollars on a sitter while Simon worked late on Tuesday night. I'm not a Justin fanatic or anything but I've reached that point that homebounds reach in the dead of winter when even bringing the big trashcan in from the curb gets my heart a fluttering because it's a little change of pace and I need to pace my wall-scaling cabin fever because it's November, I know. So a concert sounds life changing but the home try-on frame kit was a super close second place. Don't state the obvious that a, b, and d are basically identical or that my t-zone is out of control or that these photos are grainy. I'm triple aware. I like b the best and I doubt I'll even bite the frame bullet but still .... it was a fun ten minute retreat away from the norm. This isn't sponsored or anything ... I just wanted to have fun. And Warby delivered. (It's totally free and totally fun ... do it up). Anyway ... do you like one over the others? Or do they all look the same?
What else? I'll tell you.
Julia just cried sick-wolf from her fake nap and I found a wall COVERED in purple crayon. So ... her bedtime may have just occurred at 3:30 in the pm if she knows what's best for her but a Magic Eraser will get that out, no problem .... right?
Mary sent this earlier today and it reaffirmed my deep affection for Costco.
About .2 seconds after I found out I was pregnant my face decided to do a little reenactment of its college shenanigans by way of worst and most painful breakouts ever ever ever. And because I really can't go on Accutane again (I just remember the medication always came with huge warnings and babies with coneheads ... so REALLY not pregnancy safe) I read a million reviews and settled on the Clear Regular Strength Acne System from Paula's Choice during a 3 am date with insomnia. It came 8 days ago and my face cleared up immediately and a blemish hasn't dared to surface since. I feel like an infomercial when I talk about it to Simon but so far -- it's been a miracle worker. I'm using it in conjunction with the Nerium because I love Nerium and the kit didn't come with lotion. Again, not sponsored but if you're as desperate as I was and want to order it - if you use my referral link we'll both get $10 off our next orders. Hopefully I'll never need to order it again though.
Okay so back to the cold weather that isn't even that cold. I hope Kelsey is cackling from her post up in Alaska where this is probably the equiv of a balmy July to her and her brood. Anyway, I have serious dress envy from her night out with her man (aka husband) and I'm wondering how ridic something like that would look at the hospital Christmas party where I've seen many a female in fancy slacks. Probably not very.
I trust you saw Jen's gorgeous book cover? More envy. The healthy kind of envy - fear not. Although Simon said if I ever write a book it should be titled, "Hair Volume: My Lifelong Quest" so .... my imaginary cover might look a little bit different. More serious maybe.
A few ad spots opened up today and I'd love to have you .... so there's that little bit of spice.
And finally ... let's end things with a bang here ... tons of kind souls gave me some awesome dinner recipe recommendations on the old Facebook page yesterday. I can't stop thinking about cauliflower (see post title) so I'm making this for dinner. Simon's response was a whooooole lot of silence so I'll let you know his exact vocalized sentiments posthaste. Of course I will.
