All About Thursday 07.28.11

-----
Free stuff:
  • Nescafe Dolce sent the box of Cappucino Ice pods I had won through Twitter.
  • Steri-Bottles came from my win on Akron Ohio Moms
  • Aveeno Sample
  • Disney Cars Instant Win Game code for the Amazon GC came in my email
  • Beauty Blitz sent me a box of 3 nail polishes from Julep that I won in their July daily giveaway

Healthy stuff:
  • changed to peanut butter without hydrogenated oil and threw the old stuff away
  • purchased decent bread without high fructose corn syrup or other junk
  • chose to get some almonds (with dark chocolate) as a snack instead of chips
  • traded the salad dressing full of soybean oil for one without junk - the taste difference on this particular item was "WOW"
  • got some laundry soap free of dyes, ink, and perfumes - I'm pretty sure the other bottle is what gave me hives
  • exchanged plain Greek yogurt for the regular sugar-filled brand & bought honey to mix with it

Life stuff:
  • painted my nails with that new polish today - hadn't done that in about 8 years
  • remembered to call in a prescription refill
  • saw the youngest child breeze in and breeze out long enough to grab clean clothes - the dogs were sad when he didn't pay much attention to them...particularly Ruger
  • temperature here remains extraordinarily high
  • Charlie fixed my leaky faucet - finally :)
  • reading Towers of Midnight in preparation for the final book in the series coming out this fall - I may do one more re-read of the series after that and then I think I'll put them up for good.

Review stuff:

We have to buy "free" laundry detergent too...my hubby and son have sensitive skin. Hubby even had chronic hives for about a year! They finally went away over time. New GFC follower..would love for you to follow back!
