8 random things I'm lovin'

I keep a list of things I've been meaning to blog about and after glancing over it, I realized that while it's absolutely wonderful, there's not a great way to construct an entire post around my favorite lip balm.  I just don't have the word skills for that.  So instead, here is a somewhat random list of eight things that I'm lovin' right now.  In no particular order:

1. Corti balm.  Best stuff I've ever tried for healing dry, cracked lips.  Love it.

2. Rollick.  Keith found this before my family went to the beach at Thanksgiving, and we had way too much fun with it.  It's similar to charades, but instead of one actor per team, there's one guesser and many actors.  It had my dad - career military man, Bible scholar, and all-around macho guy - doing the moonwalk!  It kept us up way too late and caused us to laugh much too hard.  I wish I had a photo or two for this one!  

3. Sander/Deglosser.  This stuff is wonderful for impatient painters like me.  Just wipe it on, let it dry, and paint.  No sanding necessary!  I've used it a few times now and have liked it more each time.

4.  Little Miss Austen's Pride & Prejudice.   It's the 200th anniversary of one of my favorite all-time books and I celebrated by getting this sweet little board book for Lula at Christmas.  It's never too early for a little exposure to P&P!
The illustrations are adorable.  

5.  Slob-proof paint pen.  I can't actually vouch for this one because I haven't used it (yet!) but as soon as I figure out my next mural project, I'm going to be all over this.  It's a paint pen that can be filled with any paint, then washed and reused.  Genius!

6.  We just added a few Ikea wardrobes to our new bedroom for some much-needed storage space, and I decided to dress them up a bit with these knobs.
Ours came to us via ebay with a bit of a smaller price tag.  I love the sparkle of the mercury glass.  

7.  Skillet lasagna.  I found this via pinterest (of course!), tried it, and loved it.  It's now on my "Tried and True Recipes" board so I can find it quickly whenever I want to dish it up.  It's much quicker than regular lasagna, only requires one pan, is sooo yummy, and supposedly is only 7 weight-watchers points.  I added in spinach and chopped zucchini last time I made it for a few more veggies.  Delicious!

8. Moroccan oil.  This does wonders for my hair.  Smooths, shines, softens....  It's wonderful.  There are a lot of different brands out there, but my local Kroger happened to have this one for around $8.  Since I don't get out much, I scooped it up, and it's been fantastic.  

So there you have it.  Eight completely unrelated, random things I'm lovin' right now and thought y'all might, too.  Anything you'd like to share?
