An Ode to What I'm Finding Fine in '09


Dear Fiber One: Thank you for your granola bars' delicious flavors and relatively low calorie count. I eat one EVERY SINGLE morning. And all I have to say is, um...all that fiber you're packing does a great job of keeping a gal regular...if you catch my whiff drift.
2. Dear Nelle & Lizzy: Thank you for creating such fun yet sentimental products. For Christmas my Hubby got me the stamped triple ring engraved with our boyz' names. (Meaning, I feigned surprise when I opened the box on Christmas morning, but I basically had SENT HIM YOUR WEBSITE LINK and instructed him to BUY THIS ONE.) In any event, I receive lots of compliments on it!

3. Dear Smashbox: Your O-GLOW cheek color has worked overtime during this long New England winter as I vainly attempt to not look like a corpse.

4. Dear Uggs: Speaking of weather, thank you for your warmth. Your coziness. Your comfort. And most of all? Your ability to withstand foot stink. I heart you.

5. Dear Philosophy: (To be sung) Amazing Grace, how sweet your aroma, that scents a gal like me...

6. Dear Infusium 23: Your (frizz)ologie shampoo is like a freaking MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE! Where have you been all my life? Thanks you you, I'm saving huDge amounts of valuable time in the morning by NOT HAVING TO BLOWDRY MY UNRULY MOP! Instead, I just towel dry and GO. Granted, I now bear an uncanny resemblance to Curly Sue, but it's well worth it to not have to futz at the ass-crack of dawn. Amen.

7. Dear Nintendo: Thanks for allowing me to practice balancing, learn yoga moves, and most importantly, ROCK THE HULA HOOP. I just have one question for you regarding the WiiFit though- whose sick idea was it to allow the balance board to GROAN when one steps on it? Not nice. Not nice AT ALL.

What's tickling your fancy these first few months of 2009?

I love those Fiber One bars...but don't ask what happens when you eat the entire box before lunch...

Chris said...

I love that ring!!! On my way to their site right now to check out prices. Totally cool!

LMAO @ Judy. Makes my belly hurt thinking about it.

I just LOVE that ring!! I showed it to my husband and hinted about Mother's Day. I also saved the site to favorites. Maybe he'll catch on.

We just bought a Wii, and I was thinking about the WiiFit. I've heard great things about it so I think I'll have to get it! Anything to help me burn more calories. I can't believe how SORE I was after boxing and bowling with hubby! So the Wii is definitely something I've been enjoying.

Infusium has a leave in spray conditioner that I use every day and LOVE LOVE!! You can spray it on wet or dry hair. It's a miracle product.

Aren't you sounding all upbeat and positive on such a snowy day!

I heart my Uggs too. And I love Nutrisystem. And my Lee jeans from Kohls in a size smaller!

Patois said...

Ditto the Fiber One bars. And I've really got to get me a pair of Uggs.

I know! What's up with the Wii groaning? Or the, "Oh!" like it's going to break if you don't stand still because it thinks you're too fat to be standing on it? Definitely a design fail.

But the ring? GORGEOUS!
