Girl with laptop

Ha! You thought I was off-line for some time, didn't you? I certainly did, but my sweet Husband, feeling riddled with guilt that he was taking the computer with him to Atlanta for so long--and would likely need to continue doing so for the next month of weekends--bought his blog-addict wife a used laptop! Isn't he a big sweetie? Did I say how much he rocks? He does.

And how do I repay my dear spouse? My splurging at the Aveda store while he's gone, of course! Now, lest you think I do this routinely, let me assure you that I do not. I'm usually a soap and cheap moisturizer kind of girl. But I have an impressive crop of forehead zits that I'm beginning to think are a result of my poor facial hygiene, so I thought I'd spring for the fancy stuff and see if that helped. I want to thank Aveda for putting a name to the kind of skin that I have, by the way. It's "mature" skin. Not wrinkly and dry, still prone to break-outs, and kind of grayish looking if I haven't gotten enough sleep--"mature," thank you very much. Which is why I plunked down $32 for "Night Nutrients" and another $18 for "Intensive Hydrating Masque." Ouch! ButI'm quite certain that I will soon be gorgeous and youthful-looking once more. It's just a matter of days, or perhaps even hours...!

good for you - and hurray for hubby! i think you made a good choice - i realize they're expensive, but aveda products are the only ones i will use to clean my face and hair. . . i'm a big fan, have been for years, and no, they're not paying me to say this. . .

I too love the Aveda...I need to physically avoid Aveda salons because I tend to buy lots when I'm in them...

cubmommy said...

Yeah for That was very nice.

Let us know if the Aveda stuff works.

I thought you looks pretty darned good today, girlie. Not at all "mature"

What a nice husband!!! I have dropped every clue I know, INcluding "I WANT A LAPTOP" linked to the one i want. He says I will spend too much time on it. Not true, I say, because I don't think it is possible, but atleast I can watch the kids while I am on it.

I use Aveda and you will love it.

I need a laptop! Now that it's 'tax season' and dh wil spend every waking moment doing taxe I'll go through withdrawls. I told him I'd get him chocolate and really good sex for V-day if he'll give me a laptop... I may have to go get one myself....
