1. A pineapple corer. My friend Suzanne brought hers over earlier this spring and I LOVED it. It ended up in my dishwasher and then my cupboard and a few times she was over and I honestly remembered that we had it but "forgot" to return it. So... last Friday night after a great "make your own whole wheat pizza" night, I buckled down and gave it back. So I found my own for $9.99 today and had a 20% of coupon. If you don't have one of these slick (calorie-friendly) things, you should consider it.
2. A new bathmat because I hate mine so much. It has approximately 10 suctions on it and it's always sliding around. This wouldn't be an issue if my tub weren't fiberglass and slicker than a whistle and (I think-- but Dave will refute) slightly tilted downward. If I put Dekker in there without the mat he honestly slides right down to the drain. (And yes, I clean it regularly, gross-0's). So my new mat will take 30 minutes to "install" every time I clean, but it has a lot of suctions-- like 200 and I'm not over exaggerating. Does anyone have a bathmat that they love?
3. And finally, I found a little gem for the low low price of $4.99. And because I was with my mom and every 20% off coupon she's ever gotten since 2004, I had a coupon that saved me $1.00. So... ...
Well honestly. For $3.99 I HAD to know if this would solve my hair problems. The ones NOT created by my bangs taking on a zip code of their own... It's not as easy as it looks...
I read the directions and everything. I am going to keep working on it because actually, if I could get it in just right and get my hair to go over it just right and then spray hairspray on it just right... it almost covered up the device and looked pretty cool. hahaha. And now, Aunt Becky, you know what your "surprise" is.
The rest of the day was great. It kept raining so we had Mexican food, then went to the new Kohls where we found some adorable PJ's for Dekker-- sweet thing is just growing up and can you believe that we bought him size 24 months! It is separate, pants and shirt. Except the pants have footies (love them) and the shirt "snaps" into the waist band of the pants. So big boy. He is a big, WALKING boy. We drove home and he "napped" in the car, then at home in his crib a little and we had a snack before I ran across town to my Monday night date with the Ted E Bear Hollow. I took this salad and it was a HIT. I served it with tortilla chips but a lot of people ate it with a green salad or as a side. I made it the night before and just added the avocado right before we left. I'm making the same thing for small group tomorrow night. I'm loving the Skinny Taste website.
Need to get to bed... so I can fall asleep before the "flash flood" wakes me up tonight. I love storms, actually, so I'm pretty jazzed and will be somewhat disappointed if it flops.
On the journey,
