Blog Fling!

Happy Saturday, readers! I've been looking forward to today all week. And not just because it's the weekend. (I'm a stay-at-home Mom, remember? No "weekend" for me!)

Today is Sara's Blog Fling! My post today comes from Brandi. Be sure to check out Brandi's blog, and Sara's to find other bloggers who are flinging their blogs.

Here's Brandi's post:

I grew up in the country and I don't think my mother has ever had a manicure or a pedicure. I had to teach myself about girlie products including tampons, often learning things the hard way. There was the time that I waxed off and entire eyebrow. Then another time when I tried to straighten my hair... the chemicals burnt it and my hair started breaking off at the roots. I was left with some nice bald spots. Asking me about a beauty product is like asking a boy to pick out your prom dress.

I've had my moments. I'm partial to Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. My hair stays relatively trimmed. My eyebrows are mostly plucked and my day isn't right until I've showered and shaved. I have makeup preferences although I'm thinking if the economy gets any worse my choices will have to come from Target instead of Sephora. I still swear my Maybelline Great Lash mascara.

What do I treasure most, you ask? If stranded on a dessert island, what is the one thing I can't live without? Here it is...

This stuff is the most versatile and best thing I own. Even dirt poor, I think I would find a way to have it in my cabinet. It cures chapped lips in a heartbeat. It laughs at my scaly elbows and knees. I've used it on babies butts and as lip gloss in a pinch. I lather my hands at night in an effort to make that dry wrinkly 35-year old skin go away. I think it's working. When my kids had psoriasis on their scalps, this was applies. Their hair was greasy one day but the scales disappeared. I quite clearly and vehemently swear by it. Run out and get some. Wait! Maybe I should buy stock first.

Thanks, Brandi! Don't forget to head on over to her blog, and Sara's, too!

This is some of the greatest stuff ever made. I first used it when my daughter was an infant. They gave it to us at the pediatrician for her diaper rash. It's great on faces and lips, too. In the winter, when my hands get cracked and raw, it makes a world of difference.

I agree this is a great product. We have used it for diaper rash and it works wonders.

Jenn-I so agree with you on the excitment for the weekend and that mommies never get a weekend off. Have a blessed day!

Okay. 3 TIMES now, I have had to go put lotion on before reading your blog.
