things i’m digging
1. Valentine’s Day
Yes, I’m one of those people who loves everything about today. I love pink and hearts and candy and flowers and balloons and stuffed animals. I don’t need Valentine’s Day to celebrate love, but I think there is something very nice about having a full day dedicated to loving the one you’re with. Even when I was single I couldn’t hate on this day. I’m a sucker for some candy hearts. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
2. My Kindle
In preparation for our beach trip next month, I shelled out the cash and got a bottom-of-the-line Kindle. I have an iPad, which I love, but it is not good for reading, especially in the sun. The Kindle ROCKS. So light, easy-to-read, and I can get lots of great books for free from my library.
3. The Neti Pot
In an attempt to hold off another sinus infection in 2012, I’ve been using the Neti Pot like it’s my job. If you’ve never heard of the Neti Pot before, it’s a small plastic tea pot that you mix a warm saline solution in. You then use it to stream the solution through your sinuses. Sounds disgusting and painful, but it isn’t painful at all (and only a little disgusting). It almost immediately takes away sinus pressure I have and makes sure my sinus stay clean and infection free.
4. Junk Food Clothing Colts Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt was a Christmas gift from Babyface and it’s amazing. Other than being Colts-erific, it’s also incredibly soft, cozy and warm. I had it on over my Recipage shirt and a pair of old lounge pants and I turned to Babyface and said, “I don’t think I’ve ever been this comfortable before.”
5. Your generosity
Getting sick of me plugging this yet? Well, you only have four more days to endure. Seriously though, I am so in love with how open and charitable you guys have been with the Cook for the Cure Raffle. I am in complete awe of the numbers that are coming in. I always knew BTHR readers were amazing, but with this, you’ve totally exceeded my wildest dreams. XOXO. Even if you can’t join in the raffle fun, you can do your part by spreading the word about it on your blog, on Twitter and on Facebook. I understand that not everyone has money to spare, but by spreading the word about the raffle, you’re helping save lives, too. There are even graphics to use! Thank you for supporting me and this cause.
