A Bit of a Wrinkle...

Ok, I don't have any grey hair yet (I had hubs look at my roots this weekend), but OMG, this picture taken yesterday at the zoo makes me look ollllllllllllllllllllld...

I don't mind the freckles so much, I've grown to love them, but those wrinkles and that thin skin under my eyes need some work. And a lot of people don't tell you this, but most ladies get dark spots on their skin when they get pregnant - another hidden gem of pregnancy - and mine are most prominent on my forehead, of course.

So, give it to me ladies - what wrinkle products have you tried and have actually worked? I'm gonna buy something and do a before and after of the most recommended product and let you know, rather - see, what happens.

  1. Wendy Marie, you know that sun that you love so much? It has taken its toll on your skin...the best thing that you can do is choose a good daily care regimen and stick with it every day and use sunscreen!!! I'd hate for you to take a close up of my face. Of couse anybody's face would show lots of imperfections with such a good camera and at such a close up view. Stay away from me!!!! 8-)

  7. First, you do not look old. Second, I have those spots, and I've never even been pregnant before. LOL! My dermo said it's hormones and the sun. But still, I digress....

  10. i think you look beautiful! i'm 23 years old with no children & i have creases all around my eyes. how does this happen!? i think my consistent time in the sun, lack of care, squinting, smilling and rubbing them as hard as i can has done me no good. :(

    my sweet mother heard me say something about them one day and bought me neutrogena
    anti-oxidant age reverse eye cream. i don't know if its making any long term differences butafter a night of wearing it my eyes do feel better in the morning!

    good luck!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
