Random! Thursday!

Okay folks, here you go: Token Random Copout Post of the Week.


1) I've been using the purple Matrix shampoo and conditioner (color-treated, perhaps?) for my recently greasy-pregnancy hair. And it's amazing! My hair is soft! Shiny! Not greasy!

2) Yesterday I was doing the dishes and had the dishwasher open, but neither the top nor bottom tray were pulled out. I scrubbed some dishes in the sink and when I went to pull the bottom tray out, I was stunned to see Cub standing there, on the open dishwasher door, reaching for something on the countertop. He had climbed up, unbeknownst to me. Why, hello there!! GET DOWN BEFORE YOUR MOTHER HAS A HEART ATTACK.

3) I'm craving salty and sweet things alike. Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby Ice Cream is quite good, and so is Mexican food. And eggs and toast for breakfast. And milkshakes. Notice I am not craving salad. Why is that?? Why can't I crave lima beans and tofu? 

4) I need a good winter lotion. Any suggestions?

5) My nails are getting long, a la prenatal vitamins. That's nice.

6) Have you seen the specials with the poor woman who was attacked by that chimp? She might be the bravest person I have ever seen.

7) I love Thursdays because they mean play group.

8) Especially when the play group is meeting at my neighbor's house, so Cub and I can walk there.

9) Cub is walking everywhere and I absolutely love this stage. The walking and then the abrupt falling. Walk, fall. Walk, fall. His little center of gravity is so low that he doesn't have far to go, but he sure hits hard! And then he pops back up and keeps going. It's hilarious.

10) Lastly, gratuitous baby pic of Cub in the alpaca sweater his grandparents bought him in Ecuador. And he is carrying an (unused) nasal aspirator. :) 

Have a lovely day!


  1. Love the sweater and Yes, your hair is lovely :) Let me know when you find a good lotion. I bought the cheap Aldi brand this last time around and I'm not impressed.

  2. I recently bought some Arbonne body butter and it is the bomb. If you know anyone who sells Arbonne, getcha some!

  3. I love, love the purple matrix and I'm so glad you're loving it too!
    I've always been a big fan of Jergens in the winter time, it has a nice soft scent and is hydrating without being too greasy. My sister SWEARS by Aveeno....

  4. Great sweater, and cute model too!

  5. Love the sweater, the aspirator not so much! A yucky necessity.
    Caleb is very fast - yesterday, I thought I could use the bathroom fast enough that he would be safe. I left the door open so I could see him, put the dogs out (for his and their protection!) and proceeded into le toilette. He follows me into the hallway, grins, peeks in the doorway, and veers into the utility room and straight into the dog dish. Good thing the dogs only get dry food. Fastest potty break ever. Disaster averted - no food ingested. Closed the utility room door. Whew!
    I love Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy plus Smoothing Essentials Fast Absorbing Lotion. It's fragrance free. Of course, I have wacked-out middle-age skin that is sooo dry, so it might be too heavy for you, but I use it even in the summer. It does seem to absorb pretty fast so that your skin doesn't have that "lotion sheen". I also like Burt's Bees Radiance Body Lotion, but it has mica in it so it is a little sparkly.

  6. I'm hosting a fun monogram card or Christmas card giveaway, drop by my blog to enter!
