glee and other goodies and why I'm blogging mid-morning
Have you seen Glee? (The show, not the gum below.) We are big fans, and I understand that the next episode won't air until April. This doesn't look promising for the show's future. Definitely watch if you have the chance - it's hilarious, clever, and did I mention hilarious?
Have you seen Glee? (The gum, not the show.) We are not gum people (it drives Adam crazy if I chew gum near him, so I try not to), but sometimes I like to have something more than a mint handy in my purse when needed. But I don't go for sugar-free gums with aspartame and other artificial sweeteners, so I was pleased to find this gum at Yarmouth Natural last week. It's tasty, but the flavour doesn't last nearly as long as 'regular' gums. Good for freshening breath in a hurry, though, which is what I was looking for. And really, with packaging like that, who cares what it tastes like?
I ordered some soaps (I know - the last thing I need is soap, but I love it!) from fantastic Amber. I blogged about them over here. Mmmm!
And this is one of our two Advent calendars (and by far Phillip's favourite). I bought it last year at Chapters after Christmas, for maybe $10. It's made of wood, and I love that it's reusable and should be with us through lots of Christmases to come. Adam discovered that Laura Secord milk chocolates wrapped like little presents fit perfectly in each door.
Lastly, I'm home from work this week, since my blood pressure was up yesterday at my prenatal appointment. I have all of my Christmas soap orders done, gifts purchased and wrapped, and now that work's done, it is my full-time job to relax. I go back in a couple of weeks for a follow-up, and I'm keeping track of my pressure here at home. Happy relaxing to me!
