Neutrogena Wave

This is a challenge. If you're anything like me, the minute you became a mother, you stopped taking as good of care of yourself. I stopped wearing my retainers (now my teeth aren't as straight), I stopped cleaning my face as often (because I rarely put on make-up), I used to do sit-ups and push-ups nightly (now....ya, right!), I stopped getting regular pedis (this is a necessity in life isn't it?), I don't floss nearly as often as I should. It's deeply affected my morning and nightly routine. The other night at GNO, someone mentioned that the reason men's faces stay looking younger is because they shave and it exfoliates their skin. That's all it took for me. I was going to start exfoliating every night (I know I'm a freak...ONE COMMENT!) Which led me to this. I love this little thing. I even bought nail polish and painted my toes a bright sunshiney yellow. So, I challenge you mothers, committ to giving yourself 10-15 minutes a day for a pedi, for a facial, something spiritual, whatever it takes to make you feel beautiful. DO IT!

Bomboy's Home Made Ice Cream

We ventured over to Havre de Grace today, had delicious crab cakes (best view EVER)....and then, the.BEST ice cream. It's home made.....I don't remember the last time I saw a mom and pop home made hard ice cream shop. I had Salty Dawg (choc-covered pretzels in vanilla). And then, I almost cried when I saw the girl lock up Bomboy's home made candy shop across the street. Gotta go back.

Silver Dophin Sticker Activity Books

"W" has spent hours and hours with these sticker books. I got them at costco for $7.99 a piece. By far the best money ever spent on the kid. The last road trip and airplane trip we took were a breeze.

Creature ABC

I picked this book up for the boys at Sandpebble in Friday Harbor. I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time.

They also had this book. Almost got it too.
