I feel like all I've really posted on the last few weeks are link ups, so here's a little update about what's going on.

-The joys of home ownership just got worse.  Our landlord called us last week and told us that he is putting our house on the market.  We've got to get moving.....now.  That being said, we're expanding our home search to a few areas we haven't looked before in hopes of finding something good.  We're going to look at a few more houses this week so hopefully we can decide on something soon.  In some ways it's comforting to have a time line since I'm afraid KB would just keep looking until forever and not find anything, but in other ways it scares the bejesus out of me to know that we might not have a place to stay.  Scary.

-Since we're going to be moving out of our current home sooner than planned we're doing a lot of clean up so it's not a master clean when we finally move out.  Our bathroom is designed really terribly.  There are no vents and no windows, so the steam from the shower has nowhere to go.  We have a terrible mildew problem in there because our landlord is really dumb and not the best house flipper.  I've tried to use all the natural products I can find and nothing was making the mildew go away.  Finally I broke down and tried this stuff....

It's definitely not natural, but it definitely works.  I didn't even have to scrub and everything came right off.  I would suggest wearing gloves and a mask.  I found out the hard way when I breathed in a bunch of it and thought I was going to die.

- I finally used up all of my old face wash and got around to using my new Kiehl's ones and I love them.  I have the rare earth cleanser and the cucumber toner and they are both great.  The cleanser has a slight exfoliator but not too much and it leaves my skin super clean and soft.  The toner is also really good for making my skin soft and moisturized.  So far I'm only using really tiny amounts because they were expensive.  At the rate I'm going I can probably make them last a year or more.

Buy this now.

-I've been trying to keep up my reading recently and have read a couple of okay books.

This book was kinda boring and predictable.  The "oh poor pitiful me, I'm fat and the world just doesn't understand" schtick got a bit old towards the end.

This book was pretty good.  It's all about food allergies and how this lady copes with them.  I don't have any food allergies and I don't know anybody with really serious ones so it was kind of interesting to learn about them.  It makes me really glad I don't have to look at everything I eat and wonder if it will kill me or not.

-I had a dentist appointment yesterday so I took the whole day off and just laid around.  Work has been super stressful recently and it seems like nothing goes right.  I've definitely had a few days where I got so angry that my face was purple.  A good day off with nothing to do and clean teeth should hopefully help things.  I spent yesterday working out, cooking, cleaning and getting my teeth done.  I love going to the dentist.  Fresh clean teeth is one of the best feelings in the world.


  1. all the house stuff will come together. it always does!
    and sometimes you just need some chemicals to get the job done. those liberal cleaners are just hanging out pretending to work....

  2. Kiehl's products are so fabulous! Best of luck with the house hunt!

  3. Good luck house hunting! I hate going to the dentist. I have to take a nerve pill prior to appts.
