It's time for another round of my FAVORIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITE things! I had the toughest time coming up with the second list. I couldn't quite narrow it down and when I would ask Mr. Man his opinion he would say, "No, you can't give everyone a deer and a crew of Juans." Lame, he is such a Debbie Downer. This week, I'll be posting things that I wish I could give, it's full of some gorgeous eye candy and beauties.
For this week, Quite Contrary Mary and I are doing a simultaneous giveaway, which means you could win either one, or even both if you are super lucky. The first item on the list is my favorite book of all time, The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. It is one of those books where you don't want the book to end, because you don't want to say goodbye to the characters.
I love my insulated cups so much, it's become my latest accessory. I always have one in my hand.
It reminds me of Mary-Louise Parker in Weeds who always had an Iced Coffee in her hands.
This next product has REVOLUTIONIZED how I do laundry. Seriously, I cannot rave about this product enough. Laundry has always been problematic in our house. I used to do it all on Saturday, and then spend my wild Saturday nights folding laundry. Then we added sports and our Saturdays became crazy. Then we were living out of stuff that needed to be folded and my "reading chair" in my bedroom became the "family dresser" or more like a mountain of clean laundry. Then I discovered Shout Color Catcher and my whole laundry process changed. Shout Color Catchers absorbs loose dyes so your colors don't bleed on to other clothes. So long to separating all the clothes and then sorting and folding. Now, I take Mr. Boys dirty hamper and toss it in the washer with the Shout Color Catcher and detergent. When they are all done, I put them in a basket on Mr. Boys bed and he folds and puts away his clothes. There is no co-mingling of clothes and everyone's clothes get their own loads. It is genius and I love it. I used to worry about all of AK's pink bleeding out onto her white ballet clothes, but they all come out sparkling clean and their original color.
Do you know how much I love Nordstrom's? Oh how I love them. It's my favorite place to indulge in a little me time. I love their customer service and the fact that they don't decorate for Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. I love that their personal shopping service is free and they will work with any budget. I used to be embarrassed when I went in and said, "Look, I don't have a lot of cash." The lady helping me said, "Babe... do you think I'm living like Donald Trump? I totally understand where you are coming from." Their shoe department is amazing and if I had millions, I'd buy one of every pair of shoes they had. For you, I'm giving away a $25 gift card to help nudge you into buying something special for yourself. You deserve it!
