Last week was nuts and I completely forgot to post about my Favorite Things! While usually my price cap for Favorite Things is $5, but this week I am upping it to $10.
1) Pickles and Ham:
Guys, I am literally LOVING this combination. I divide a slice of ham into three pieces and wrap each piece around a mini dill pickle–Oh. My. Gosh. It is insanely delicious. And, cucumbers are totally vegetables, by the way. I realize that this snack is a bit high in sodium; however that is my intention. I have had crazy low blood pressure lately, which makes me dizzy, so I have been trying to up my salt intake. Every other paleo food I eat is super low in sodium, so it all balances out!
Cost: Way less than $1 per serving
2) Sunless Tanning Lotion
Pamcakes & Coffee just did an excellent post on Jimmy Choos on the Treadmill about sunless tanning. This is something I have decided to embrace whole-heartedly in Chase’s absence. I REFUSE to see him all brown as a berry from his month in California while I am pastey white. This tube is the generic brand of Jergen’s Natural Glow Sunless Tanning. This cost about $7. This is a small (skin cancer-free) price to pay to prevent Chase from totally showing me up!
Ok, I realize that this is totally lame, but these antibiotics are SAVING my life (and preventing my pink eye and sinus infection from getting any worse). I am pretty sure the $10 copay was the best money I have spent all week. Don’t get me wrong, they are horse pills and I wish I had been able to throw this nasty infection weeks ago, but my body is crying out for reinforcements and here they are! Woohoo!
4) Selling Things on E-bay
I have been sorting through all of our storage and bringing everything to tip-top organization. However, in this process, I have found items to be e-bayed. I have one item that I am 90% sure I want to post on e-bay, but I need your help in making the final decision.
Ok, the object at hand are these shoes:
These shoes have only been worn once. In fact, they were only worn for 5 hours and then placed in the box where I just found them. You see, I will never wear these shoes again. My taste is shoes is more this:
The only reason that I am slightly hesitating in selling my plain jane shoes are because they are the pair I wore on my wedding day. However, they were just shoes I picked up from Macy’s at a summer sale a few weeks before my wedding. There was nothing sentimental or memorable of any part of the process.
So, can I just sell them, or does that make me a horrible and unsentimental person? What do you think?
Also, what are the things you are loving this week?
