My New Loves

Love #1 - Baby Amelie
My friend, Tiffany, gave me a new baby to hold and play with during the day. There's just something about holding babies that gives you peace. Pure innocence and peace.

Love #2 - Dove Peppermint Bark
(also given to me by my friend, Tiffany)
Run right now to the store and stock up for the whole year.
And, as an added bonus, each chocolate contains tips from Martha Stewart on how to make your holidays a little easier. I had to eat 6 chocolates to get a good tip for you all. "Dress packages in candy stripes for a sweet presentation." -Martha Stewart That was the best one ... all those chocolates for that. Puh-lease, Martha. You could do a lot better.

#3 - Givenchy mascara
Maybe I shouldn't have told you my secret ... umm ... Covergirl's good too.

#4 Oroweat Sandwich Thins
Oh my! These are soft and flavorful. They don't taste like cardboard at all. And, only 100 calories for 2 thins.

#5 - This band - Glory
Go here and listen to "Over Us." I simply cannot get that song out of my head. Love it.
Chorus: "You are God of All, all things seen and unseen. You are God of All, all things big and small. You are my God, seated on the throne. God of all."
And this lyric, "No tear unseen, no problem too small. Every moment You watch over us."
Download the song. You won't be disappointed. There are other good songs too. My 2nd favorite - "Heart Ablaze."

Do you have a new love?

I was going to post the Jody Whatley video for "Looking for a New Love," which was a really great '80s song, but the video was a little inappropriate. To think my mother let me watch those videos. I didn't even realize how inappropriate the '80s videos even were when I was in the '80s. Of course, I was like 5. That's understandable.

But, in the process, I found this gem.

I present Gary Numan's, "This is New Love." Enjoy.

Sweet sweet baby.
How do you pronounce Amelie? Is it Ah-muh-lee? or AM-uh-lee....sorry...I know an {adult} Ah-muh-lee and from knowing her I know 3 babies named the same...crazy.
Recent love. Pillsbury Family Size Milk Chocolate Brownie Mix. Perfect chocolate. Perfect for 9x13 pan. Not super thick. Not pancakes. Perfect.

That Dove stuff up there??
Well, it looks pretty darn good!

That picture of you with the baby? Precious. Sure you're done having kids? :)

And I REALLY wish you wouldn't have told me about the Dove Peppermint Bark. Really. I have no self control when it comes to Dove chocolate :)

We have those thin wheat breads too, right now in the fridge. What made me laugh: Instead of Oroweat ours, up here are called Peppridge Farms thin wheat buns.
I am going to have to get those Doves. MMMMMMMMMM.

Ummmm, yeaaaah. You were no where NEAR 5 in the '80s.

Not if we're the same age, sister.

Nice try, though.

Cute baby! I'm loving Coke Zero. So much better than Diet Coke. Why have I just discovered this?
