Two. Okay ladies, have you tried the new electronic facial cleansing brushes? I had not until Dec. and then I was given this
little beauty. It is the Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush by Mary Kay. All it took was one use and I was hooked! I love the clean, clean feeling it gives and supposedly it has other benefits, such as stimulating the collagen, thus slowing down the aging process. ~hope, hope~ I don't know anything about all the other brands available but I do know that this one is $50 and all the others I checked into were between $100 and $250. Hummm.....not sure about all the differences, so I'll try not to judge, but I'm thinking there can't be $200 worth of difference. I just think that the marketers know that women are easily convinced when it comes to skin and aging and they can put whatever price they want and there will always be a good percentage that will pay it. But, I'm telling you, this one by Mary Kay has really impressed me.
Three. I'm not sure I've ever introduced Bertha and Warren to my blogging buddies.
This picture was taken at the nursing facility and they spent most of their days right there in those two chairs. Don't you just love my Grandmother's wig? Bless her heart, she wore it for years!
Four. Have any of you read the book, 7 by Jen Hatmaker? The author calls it an experimental mutiny against excess. It was on the $5 table at the Christian book store after Christmas and I picked it up. I read Jen's blog and I knew a little about it from that and thought it would be a most interesting read. And, that it is!!! While I am not nor do I have plans to rid myself of as much excess as Jen has, it has been most thought provoking. Jen has pared down her closet to 7 outfits and I so enjoyed her sharing the process by which she did that. I did think how much easier my life would be if when I went to my closet I ONLY had 7 outfits to look through. I mean, how simple!!! As I said, it has definitely given me some really good "food for thought." And, her closet is just one of many, many ways that Jen has pared down with excess in her life. I'm afraid that we have become a society ruled by stuff, instead of us being the rulers of it. I'm thinking we could all learn a few lessons from Jen.
Five. Hubby and I take and pick up the Princess on Tuesday and Thursdays from Mother's Day Out ~ she calls it "school." Yesterday when we got in I let her decorate cupcakes.
Anything to do with icing is one of her most favorite things!And, when Pillsbury came up with Funfetti, they did a good thing for sure.
She worked very painstakingly on each cupcake and then could hardly wait to lick the spatula! What's not to like about sugary goodness?
Happy weekend y'all!!!
