You put in a series of words, names, etc. and can turn it into a really cool piece of art for you blog, etc. Erin did one with her kids names and nicknames. I did one for Dave and I. It's on the right.
Very fun! Thanks Erin!

I LOVE Cracker Barrel! And I do mean love!!! It's so fabulous. MMMM...Cracker Barrel! Wait, what was talking about? Right...road trip.
The reason it took so long was because the first part of the trip included rain of biblical proportions. No really...we got passed by an ark. Of course, it's not like I saw this. Like a good wife, I was sleeping in the passenger seat. But I did wake up in time for my favorite part of the trip to New York. If you've ever traveled the eastern section of I-90 between PA and Buffalo, I know you've seen this:Wait, what is that sign? Wildlife crossing? Tourist attraction? Nope!
That's right...it says "Correctional Facility Area - Do Not Pick Up Hitchhikers." No, we didn't stop to take the photo. Dave wouldn't let me. I took the photo while the car was traveling at 65 mph. Not bad for our little digital! But what I didn't realize until I enlarged it when I got home was the fact that there is a car clearly parked on the shoulder and people are walking towards it. They're too well dressed for prisoners, unless the State of New York has increased the budget for prison wear astronomically. I just bet they all got their picture in front of that sign. I'm so jealous.
But the whole point is this...who picks up hitchhikers anywhere, much less there? I mean really? This happens?!? It's a PRISON! Can you just imagine the conversation?
Passenger: "Hey look, here comes someone in an orange jumpsuit from down by the double layer of razor wire." Driver: "Who said orange was the new pink?" Passenger: "Poor thing...let's give him a ride."
Not to forget about Dave, who gamely drove the entire way both there and back. Here he is in all of his driving glory:

We may be going through a series of revamps until I find one that he can live with. OR I might decide to leave everything as is and tell him to suck it up, as he so eloquently tells me to do when I'm whining about something. Stay tuned.

Dave's family lives there, so it's always so much fun to see everybody. I'll post pics when I can.
Happy 4th, everybody!

They've introduced a new feature called I Tried It Tuesday. So here is my addition!
Recently, Chic Critique had a guest blogger, Nina, who shared a little secret about shaving. She's been using hair conditioner to shave her legs. I know what you're thinking, because I thought the same thing. But she assured the reader that the shave would be much smoother and last longer than with regular shaving cream.
Guess what...she was right!
I tried it first on one leg, with my original shaving cream on the other. The leg with hair conditioner was much smoother. The next day, I noticed I had stubble on the shaving cream leg. Still smooth on the conditioner side. So then I thought that maybe one leg's hair grows faster than the other. So I swapped legs. It still worked.
My legs are so smooth now, and so well moisturized. Who's a rock star? Ummm, that would be Nina, my new hero!!
And the very best thing? It's cheaper than than shaving cream. Bliss!!!
