Don't you just love reading end of the year top ten lists? Best movies, books, songs, news stories, inventions. Always makes me feel like I'm watching history unfold. My own personal list isn't full of anything new or shocking, but these are ten discoveries that have made my year a little happier...
02. cerave skin care
Sara Vee? Saravay? Karavie? I'm not sure how to say it, but I love this stuff. It's cheap. It's gentle. It's recommended by my dermatologist. Hey, I'm 40 now. My skin needs all the help it can get.
03. crossword love
Call me nerd if you must, but crosswords are my new favorite brain workout. USA Today puzzles are the best, in my opinion. And, if your husband travels a lot, he can bring them to you from hotel rooms around the country. Sweet.
04. my iphone
Yeah. The whole smartphone revolution...I get it now.
05. friday night lights
Brad and I are addicted. It's enough "All My Children" for me and plenty of "Sports Center" for him. He doesn't seem to mind that I have a teeny crush on Coach Taylor. Maybe because he thinks Tami is pretty cute. Thank you, Netflix.
06. charming charlie
I didn't know such a store existed til we moved West. Can you say "candy store for grown women"!? Cheap and non-fattening. Also known to cure PMS.
07. honey + licorice
These got me through my last East Coast winter. (And it was a doozy...) Sadly, I have not been able to find them anywhere since we moved. I will keep scouring drugstore shelves, though, because my pocketbook is lonesome for their crinkly-wrapped goodness.
08. shower power
Tilex Fresh Shower. You know the kind you spray and leave? And your brand-new, beautifully tiled shower stays streak- and mildew-free? I love housekeeping when it's this simple.
09. digital trainer
I've been using MapMyRun to help me stay motivated this month. Technology is just so great. With the help of #1 and #4, this little app is digitally kicking my trash.
10. babysitters in da howse
The single greatest discovery of 2010 is the fact that my kids can take care of themselves for a few hours while Brad and I catch a movie or grab a bite. In other words, I am saving so much money, I can head to Charming Charlie on a regular basis. And I can go child-free! Happy New Year to me.
