Ahhh!! Feels Like Summer!


Spent the weekend cleaning and then setting up our front porch.  Planted my flowers and even a planter of lettuce!

Now who wants to come over, have a coffee with me and watch the sailboats go by in the harbor?!

STRIXADERM-MD Luxurious AquaScoop Moisture Cream Review

I love skin care products that deliver exactly what they say they will.  Results!  I don't want expensive packaging or the additional cost necessary to pay a 15-year-old model to pitch it to me.  So when I was given the opportunity to try AquaScoop by STRIXADERM-MD, I was intrigued.  


After learning AquaScoop contains PolyMoist-PS, a "moisture magnet" that will actually bind moisture to skin, I couldn't wait to try it.  This cream is so thick and rich and so easily absorbed into skin.  I love its fresh scent and peachy shade and it easily delivered on its promise to leave my face well hydrated and nourished.  

I've been using the AquaScoop for approximately two weeks and I love how soothing and luxurious this feels when applied.  Twice a day right over my usual facial serum and done!  Say good-bye to dry, peeling skin and hello to skin that is more plump, super soft and more firm.  So quick and easy to use, something we busy moms are always looking for.

Here are the Benefits and Testing Results
 Directly from the Website:

 

If your skin is dry, chapped or cracked, it needs moisture!
Quench it with AquaScoop!!

Aloha Friday - Kitchen Knife Survey


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question:


I've hated big knives my entire life so having them out on the counter in a wooden block just creeps me out.  I was lucky to find a nice quality set that include vinyl sleeves so they could be stored away in a drawer.  Funny thing is, I love using them when I'm preparing meals but want them out of sight when they aren't in use.  How about you?

Where do you store your kitchen knives?

*just wanted to let you all know, I'm away from the computer until Tuesday*

Oh How He Cracks Me Up Lol!!!

Yes, he's at it again.  My husband had me laughing so hard the other day, I was doubled over.  I don't know how many of you have help around the house but the remark my husband made the other day totally cracked me up.  I'm just lucky I can laugh in his face and get away with it.

Here's the statement that sent me over the edge:

"Well I vacuumed the attic the other day and you didn't even say thank you"

I don't know how many of you say "Thank You" every time your husband does something around the house but I know I didn't hear a "Thank You"  when I piled 7 cord of wood this past Winter or every couple of days when I take the garbage out.  I thought it was "our" wood and "our" garbage.

So here's how I responded to his remark through fits of laughter.

"Why would I thank you for vacuuming your own attic?"

And guess what.  It left him speechless.

So tell us, what would you have said to your significant other?
