Happy, Friday, friends! I am excited for another round of, “It’s the 3 Little Things,” and sharing three things that are making me happy this week! If you have missed any of our past weeks, you can check them out here! I am also opening the post up for you to share your own list of 3 things that are making you happy this week! I’d love for you to participate either on your own blogs or in the comments below! I love ending my week on a high note, don’t you?
Oh, dear, I have become QUITE the NPR junkie this year. Every day I learn something new from listening to NPR and one of the things that my husband & I discovered was our absolute adoration for This American Life. Since we are rarely listening to the radio at the scheduled time, I splurged for the This American Life app for my iPad ($4.99) and now we are able to listen to the shows anytime we want. If you haven’t discovered it yet This American Life is mostly true stories of everyday people, and the best way I can describe it is that the show is like listening to a movie about these people. It is typically told in three acts that all interact around the same theme. It is the best kind of storytelling and usually leads to a beautiful discussion about your own viewpoints after the show.
My husband and I sit in our respective chairs and hang on every word. Every. Word. It’s become one of our favorite things to do in the evenings, further solidifying the exciting type of senior life you might expect from us in the future. If you aren’t listening to NPR, you are missing the boat. And I can say this because I missed the boat for years and now I can’t imagine my life without it.
I have been having a bad struggle with patches of eczema that just didn’t seem to heal. I read that coconut oil was a great solution and although it moisturized really well, it never cleared up my eczema. I started using this Aveeno cream and it has changed my skin completely. No more dry, itchy, irritated skin for this girl. Just a little dab seems to go a long way and my skin feels completely different especially on those patches of eczema that I have battled for forever. If you or someone you know is struggling with this, definitely give this cream a try. It has finally healed me!
If you are the type of woman that benefits from things like extra support, underwires, and wide comfortable straps…please carry on with your day. If you do not benefit from such an arrangement, I have found the world’s most comfortable undergarment ever. This bra has no lines if you wear it with t-shirts or tank tops and it is comfortable enough that you could sleep in it. I had one that I wore to death and then decided that I would buy a few more.
I went to Vassarette’s site directly, but it was $5 more than Walmart so I ordered it through Walmart instead. You can’t beat $9.48 for the world’s best bra. I bought myself five and got rid of the ones that weren’t comfortable. I would call that “something that makes me happy,” indeed!
And for those that asked why I wasn’t in that cardio dance video, I had the pleasure of being a part of one of Abbi’s tapings! If my list of randomness doesn’t make you happy, this dance will! Happy Friday, friends!!
