What we're loving (right now)

Occasionally, Hilary and I like to take a break from our regular posting and just show you some of the things we're into right at the mom

So for the next two weeks we're each going to pick three things...projects, crafts, products...and show you what we're loving. And I'm going to start! Here are my three things that I'm loving right now:

Jessica:

1. O'Keeffe's Working Hands Balm

This stuff is my magical skin secret. For those of us not used to the extremely dry Idaho air, it's been a miracle! I don't think I've ever had such dry skin in my life! My heels have cracked so badly it hurts, despite using a pumice stone on them every day. But I can slather on some of this balm and it makes my hands and feet feel super soft!



2. Extender slips:
I have a problem. Dresses are made too short! Seriously, what is with that now a days? I can't bend over while chasing my Dude (who requires quite a bit of chasing!) without exposing my unmentionables. This post by iCandy Handmade's gorgeous Autie and Jen has me totally inspired to sew my own:



3. Cucumber sandwiches:
 I had these sandwiches at the Mother's Day tea that myself, Hilary, Hilary's mom Rhonda, and our girls attended at our church last weekend. I. AM. OBSESSED.


I've had them before, but for some reason this time really struck a chord! The recipe above is for the classic cucumber sandwich steeped in traditional British culture from Less Then Perfect Parents. Click on the picture for the link to their recipe! I will be posting my own "pimped out" version of a cucumber sandwich very soon...I  think I've had it for lunch every day this week!

  5. You have just remindered me cucumber sandwiches, thank you! I love them, simple, delicious and good healthy snack! It's in the season now. Sometimes it's hard to think off what to make quickly and cucumber sandwiches are one of those good ideas :)

  6. DH picked up some of that hand cream for himself. It suits his very strict criteria of no stickiness, gumminess or "feels like lotion". He's not worried about soft, just not sandpapery and it has done wonders! He shared it once and then hid it! lol!

    1. Lol! I love this too! I picked this up for my hubby, but he's used it maybe twice because I stole it from him. This stuff is amazing!
