Review ~ Gloves in a Bottle {Skin Care}

I was sent an 8 oz bottle of Gloves in a Bottle recently to test out. I was extremely excited to give it a try because I have terribly dry skin, and from what I read it sounded wonderful.

Unlike artificial moisturizers, Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that bonds with the outermost layer of skin cells to turn it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves.

These "invisible gloves" prevent dry skin by helping to keep moisture-robbing irritants out while better retaining your skin's own natural moisture, resulting in skin that is far better hydrated, over the long term, than what can ever be achieved by conventional lotions.

Gloves In A Bottle keeps the outer layer of skin functioning so well so it can breathe and perspire naturally. Because Gloves In A Bottle becomes part of the outer layer of skin itself, it doesn't wash off like conventional lotions. It comes off naturally with exfoliating skin cells. For continued protection, just reapply every 4 to 12 h…

Now that blogging is such a habit, can you go a full day without doing it?

Rest up now, we still have a lot of year left ya know.

And no blogging about not blogging either! That's still blogging!

I'm excited for the break! Watch for my review of Gloves in a Bottle when I come back!
(Love it!)

Saturday is Aly's dress rehearsal for her first competition! Things are totally crazy. We are having major costume issues, like Aly's is still not in! Our back up is a dress some girls were last year, so we have temporarily borrowed one from a girl who has a costume. What irritates me is that now, they might not be in until after the 2nd competition. Well then she only has 1 more to do. Do I really want an expensive costume for 1 competition??? Ugh, frustrating. Plus the owner & one of the teachers …

Sock & Glove Book & freebie pattern

I was watching Martha Stewart the other day. I barely ever watch it to be honest. I'm so glad I kept it on though, she featured the cutest book Sock and Glove Creating Charming Softy Friends from Cast-Off Socks and Gloves. Now I am not good at sewing, but these little cuties look so easy! The woman from Penguin that translated the book to English, showed us how to make a rabbit & a dog. Martha had an elephant, that I want to make so bad. I have to get this book! The rabbit will be cute for Easter. All you need is a pair of gloves, they can match or not. They used work gloves on the show, but any gloves would work.

You can get the patterns on Martha Stewart's website.

Doctor Update & Review: Peace Love Mom thermal

On Thursday I had my appointment to find my biopsy results. I had a hard time getting myself ready. I kept finding other things to do, basically stalling. My appointment was at 11:45 & I literally walked in the door at 11:45. That is only because it was an easy drive there with no traffic which has been unusual.

I basically have been going the entire week expecting the worst, that I did have thyroid cancer. Figured it would be easier to handle. I know that it is one of the best you can have with high cure rates. When the doctor didn't call to change my appointment sooner, I started thinking maybe I would be ok. I was getting myself all geared up to fight with the doctors about waiting till summer since I needed to be there for my kids school & dance.

When I got there, they thankfully didn't make me wait to long. There have been times where I have waited an hour in the room for the doctor. I hate that! I'd rather be in the waiting room with other people,…

Sunday Salon ~ Review last 2 weeks

I think I forgot to post last week. Let's see, I finished Dead Witch Walking. I really liked it & can't read to the next book in the series. Then I read T is for Trespass. I felt like I was waiting FOREVER to get that book from the library. Back in 2006, I read the entire series A is for Alibi through S is for Suspense. Which I finished on new years eve because I was determined to read everything in that year, lol. Then in 2007, I finally got around to reading the Stephanie Plum series, so it was nice to get back to Sue Grafton!

Then I read Kiss the Girls. I picked that up with T. It was a quick read. I was going to finally get to the 2nd Kim Harrison book, but I found Midnight Club by Patterson & decided to read that. I was hoping to start up Jack & Jill which is the 3rd book in the Cross series, but waiting on the library.

I'm liking it so far, but it isn't as quick of a read as I thought. Patterson says it is one of his favorites, hopefully it w…
