Last night, we were watching a rerun of a rerun of Oprah. I just love that Dr.Oz. When he explained how a neti pot could clean out your sinuses, Matt just knew we needed to try it. A member of Oprah's staff had been using one for awhile and she said it was life changing. So I got on the internet to see where I could get us one of these life altering pots. Turns out, they have become so popular that the demand is outweighing the supply. They are going for about $30.00 on Ebay. Seeing as how that seems a little high for a nostril cleaner outer thing, my very clever husband decided that we could just make one ourselves. First he tried a baby bottle with the nipple tip cut off. No such luck. Next up was one of my creamer pitchers. Once again, no dice. We finally succeded with a tupperware funnel and an extra person pouring the salt water steadily into it. I have got to say, I have never breathed easier in my life. Matt said his sense of smell was amazing. So we are hooked on homemade sinus cleansing.

New food

1. After much thought, I tried Social Suppers. I went with 4 friends and made 8 meals in less than 2 hours. The meals are large enough to serve my family twice so it's really like I made 16 meals. They have about 15 dishes every month to choose from. It's stuff I wouldn't normally make so I'm excited to try something new. Like the bacon wrapped turkey medallions in blueberry balsamic sauce that we will be having this week.

2. I was officially the second to last person (Jenny being the last) to try Ocean Zen. It was wonderful!

3. Tonight, we made fondue. Well really, I watched Holly and Mandy make fondue but I ate it. So yummy.

A mother's day

Oliver has recently learned to kiss. He's picky about it, so far he's only smooched me and Morgan a few times. Daddy tries and tries but Ollie makes it clear the kisses are reserved for his mama. I just love it. I love that he's mine and he's here. I love that God choose us to be his parents. I love that my girls will always have a brother. I just love him. I don't think I'll ever get over how amazing adoption is.

What about you?

Today I was asked what I didn't like about living here. The only thing I could come up with is that they took our Gap away. Seriously. I just love it here. Don't you?

This is the most shallow post ever...

Do people who live near an Ikea even realize how fortunate they are? How great would it be to wake up on a Saturday, drive a few miles, throw down $249, and come home with this couch. While you were there, you could pick up some great $5 curtains, a $1 hot pink toilet brush, and eat a quiet lunch since your kids would be off playing in the supervised play area. I'm just saying, how great would that be?
