Latest Obsessions

Two things I'm addicted to:

The new water bottle I got for my birthday. Whitney has one and I've coveted it for a long time. It's BPA free, completely spill proof, and has the bite valve/straw combo. I am much more likely to drink something out of a straw, and since I've been super thirsty lately, I needed a better way to stay hydrated. I drink so much more now because of it. I love it because I can set it next to me in bed when I nurse at night and I don't have to worry about spills. It's also safer to use when driving--no tipping my head back to take a drink. Seriously, best water bottle ever. And of course, mine is pink.

The other is Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Lotion. This stuff is amazing. Our hands have been so dry they peel and crack and look sooo nasty. This stuff fixed it in like a day. My feet were super dry too, and after one day of lotion on them they are no longer rough and ugly. My hands are really soft now because of it. I'd always shied away from Gold Bond b/c of the price tag, but it's well worth the cost. Honestly, they give it away on The Price is Right so much I'm surprised I haven't tried it sooner. I have since repented and shamelessly promote it to everyone I see.

That's it for now. Although as you know it's only a matter of time before I find my next addiction.

I discovered the Gold Bond at Christmas. It ROCKS.

Careful with straws. My MIL used them her whole life and now her lips have "smoker wrinkles."

Bet you never thought about that, huh?

I have that same water bottle, except mine is blue. I love it! I'll have to try the lotion, I've always just used Eucerin but it's pretty pricey.

There are always coupons for the Gold Bond, so find them it will help :)

I also love Gold Bond. However, this year my hands are still cracked and dry and nasty and occassionally bleed. All that hand washing I'm doing, I suppose. I have yet to try the Shea Butter one, tho. Is that the exact one you use?
