what I'm lovin' these days.

20-ounce Yeti.  Each morning my Yeti is sitting on the bathroom counter with ice water that Jeff put there the night before. Still ice water at 4:15 in the morning when I take my life medicine. For several months now, beginning at 5 am I've nursed pipping hot coffee all morning long, until it is gone, usually finishing the mug of coffee around 8 am. Three hours of hot coffee. On the rare days I've snagged Jeff's 30-ounce man-size Yeti with the handle (shh, don't tell him!), in addition to my 20-ounce Yeti which I consume first, the 30- ounce is still hot, too, until it's gone. The Yeti can easily transition from ice water to hot coffee. Although the Yeti's are expensive at $45-50 for a 20-ounce they are so worth the price. The Yeti revolution is on! P.S. I would love this turquoise Yeti!


Sleep. I shared with Jeff the other day about loving going to bed at a decent hour because I just really love to sleep. It is one of my favorite things to do. Getting up at 4:15 am each week day morning to get ready for work dictates the necessity of getting to bed at an early hour the night before, usually no later than 9 pm, even that is late, but if I'm to have any time with Jeff, or family evening time - 9 pm it is. Come weekends I can usually sleep 9-10 hours and I'm in heaven.


Neutrogena skin care products. My skin has never looked so good. I've experienced everything from disgusting peeling skin from my nose, red, bumpy chin and cheek acne (even in my 40's - 50's), and oily, greasy shiny skin on my forehead and nose. It's been a frustrating ugly, skin, ride. Once I was able to correct some health issues and come off some skin damaging medicine I experienced some skin clear up, but it is these Neutrogena products that have truly turned my skin around. Specifically, the Clear Pore Daily Scrub, and Acne Stress-Control Triple Action Cleanser, weekly the Deep Clean Gentle Scrub, nightly the Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Serum, and Rapid Tone Repair Dark Spot Corrector, and during the driest periods the Hydro Boost Water Gel. 


Dr. Scholls Animal Print Flats. Not only for the many compliments, like, the table of four shades of brown ladies in Red Lobster the other day ogling these shoes, the sweet ladies I serve with in Elevate oohing, and many more...but also for the amazing fit, all-day comfort, and stylish look - I can wear them well with many outfits.


Lindt Lindor Caramel with Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Truffles. Oh my! An alliteration of decadent, dreamy, and deliciousness, mouthwatering sweet and savory explosion in my mouth. Simply, lovely.
