Supergoop Sunscreen

Super sunscreen is Supergoop Sunscreen! It’s not a shock that I am very particular about sunscreen that I use. I don’t like overly sticky, too white, bad chemicals, etc. So I have searched low and high for the best sunscreen over the past several years. Finally, last year, I came across Supergoop and there is no going back.

 

Yes, so true.

Chicago Skates Pulse

The internet was down in my house for four days so I apologize for the silence on my end. It still amazes how we ever lived without the world wide web — no music, no TV, no internet browsing — just quiet complaints about why there was no connection….But alas, all has been fixed and now back to reality of writing posts, sending emails, buying presents, and spending too much time connected. So here we are in the middle of Hannukah, a holiday that my family celebrates, along with many others. It is a simple holiday with just lighting of the candles, a prayer in hebrew, and gift giving. My favorite present for the season so far is this pair of metallic light up skates. I saw them at a always-in-the-know-super-cool-and-chic-friend’s house and instantly knew they were something I needed RIGHT AWAY. And sure enough, they have added so much value and happiness and joy into my life.

 

Metallic, light up, cool sneakers ON ROLLER SKATES. How could this not make you smile and laugh and want to be on skates?

Sunriver 2013

We are in Florida now after an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable week in Sunriver, Oregon with my parents.  Although not as bad as last year, we missed a connection on the way out and had to rent a car and drive four hours from Portland.  No matter what a pain in the arse traveling across the country is with two kids, two car seats, a stroller and five million bags, it is worth every second to be with my parents. Enjoy the pics!

The area around the Sunriver resort is usually covered with snow this time of year.  At least we got to enjoy the high desert scenery.

The area around the Sunriver resort is usually covered with snow this time of year.  Not this time.  So no ski-out cross country skiing.  At least we got to enjoy the high desert scenery.
