HAPPY EIGHT EIGHT O EIGHT, 8-8-08!

Keeping with the theme of the day, I thought I’d share eight things that I love.

1. Need A Margarita?
No, not alcohol. This citrus sugar body scrub (from Bath & Body Works) will leave your skin feeling soft, luxurious, and smelling like a Tahitian sunset. Not to mention, it gets rid of those ugly red bumps that form on the back of your arm.

2. Activia Yogurt

It works and I love it, especially vanilla-flavored. I often consume it by blending it with a banana, Skippy all-natural peanut butter, milk (chocolate soy or regular 1%), and some ice. It’s also great blended with any kind of frozen fruit.

3. Curel Lotion

I’ve used this since I was a wee lady, thanks to my mom. And now that I live in Utah, it is a absolute, daily, all-over the body moisturizer after every shower or bath.

4. Clorox Green Works Cleaner

This is a relatively new product. I find the pleasant lemon aroma and lack of “chemical-ness” a wonderful all-purpose glass and surface cleaner.

5. Joshua won So You Think You Can Dance

I love that the “muscley,” manly, running back from Texas won this dance competition. I’m going to miss this show until next summer.

6. The Olympics start today
I love athletic competition. Go Team U.S.A.!

7. A meal made out of leftover kitchen scraps that turns out delicious
Don’t you just love it when it all comes together and tastes great?

8. Summertime and fresh peaches!
I’m on my way to the orchard to get some today! I can’t wait for the sweet, juicy, and peachy goodness to satisfy my sweet-craving palate.

*As a bonus to "Things That I Love": Crude oil is trading at $115. 41 a barrel as I type, not to mention the Dow is up over 300 points. This is great!

I'm going to have to try your lotion...my skin is so dry lately!

I'm completely jealous that you can go get peaches from an orchard. I'm going to have to find some out here, but they'll be from a store. It's not quite the same.

I've been wondering about the Activia. I'm not a huge yogurt fan, but I was interested to see if it really works. So yeah, you convinced me to try it! Vanilla sounds yummy.
