our company just acquired www.billiondollarbabes.com!

i've been a member for awhile now and actually made my first purchase last month (paul frank goodies for kaitlyn). 

anyways, just wanted to pass along an invite in case anyone wants to join. 


currently on sale are my favorite pair of seven for all mankind jeans (ginger), chanel jewelry and mia bossi diaper bags.  goodness, this takes me back to my college summers when i was never able to leave work (nordy's) w/ my entire paycheck intact :p

comparable to hautelook, ideeli, etc... happy shopping!

a few weeks ago, i ordered about a dozen fleece items from babygap for all the kiddies on our list. when the box arrived, i noticed that one of the hoodies looked pretty big. it was for our 8 year old nephew and when i checked the sizing chart online, i must've rounded up too big, so i took it back to the store to exchange for a smaller size. the following weekend, we saw ethan and commented on how he'd grown into his bones. i asked his mom what size he was and turns out, i had the right size all along. DOH!

so back in the bag the new item went. i took it w/ me to work to exchange again. every morning, i catch up on my sleep on my 45 minute commute in. this morning was no different. i got off the train, bleary-eyed and schlepped my way into the office. after i walked about a block and started to wake up a little, i stopped in my tracks and realized i'd left the darn bag on BART. DOH! DOH!

i've been kicking myself ever since. dave tried to console me a bit, suggesting that maybe someone would turn in the bag to lost & found. yeah, right. i was also a little concerned bc the bag contained my receipt and packing slip w/ some personal info on it. in any case, it was a lost cause.... or so i thought.

last night, i got home and checked our front door for packages and to my surprise, there was one from an address i didn't recognize. i set it aside to attend to kaitlyn, wracking my brain abt the purchases i'd made in the past weeks, but couldn't come up w/ anything i'd purchase from etsy, ebay, etc... when i finally got a chance to open the package, i was stunned to see ethan's too-small sweater, my receipt & packing slip along w/ a christmas card from a girl named Jazmin who wrote that her brother had found the bag in a parking lot in SF (nowhere near a BART station) and she wished me a happy holiday.

i've been smiling from ear to ear ever since. how's that for a random act of kindness?!

off to the gap to get ethan the right size once and for all... AND a thank you gift for my good Samaritan.

just got this email...

The link below takes you to the ELF Nordstroms make up and yes, everything is $1.

Nordstrom is changing the logo on their makeup, so they're selling everything for $1!!!

The make-up line e.l.f.(eyes-lips-face) has been bought out by  

Nordstrom and  will be re-packaged with the Nordstrom name on it. They are getting  

rid of the entire make up in ELF packaging. They are selling everything for  

$1. You do have  to pay shipping. They have everything - powder, mascara, lipstick,  

a mineral  line (100% natural), brushes & cases, nail polish, lotions, you  

name it  -it's there. The website is :  http://www.eyeslipsface.com/shop.asp

When you check out there is a space for a coupon code. Use CAROLINA  

and save an additional 50% if your order is over $15.00.

just an idea in case y'all need an idea on where to spend all that extra goodness from your stimulus bonus ;)

ETA:  a coworker just mentioned and i googled it a bit, but i guess these products have always been a buck.... just goes to show you how much i know about makeup!  oh well, looks like a good place to stock up on brushes, etc ;)

The Inauguration Around the Bay
Normally this street sign would say "END BUSH," but the signs on Bush Street have been changed to "OBAMA" on Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2009, in San Francisco. (Kurt Rogers / The Chronicle)

what's this mess, you ask?  remnants of our sushi dinner.  an organic oatmeal animal cookie in w/ the katsu sauce, why?  because kaitlyn didn't want to eat it.  do you want to know what else kaitlyn hasn't wanted to eat in the last two days?  ANYTHING that isn't milk.  her mood's been perfectly agreeable otherwise.  is it teething?  is she just being fickle? is it my cooking? did she overhear us joking about her pot belly and impose a diet? who knows.  i sure don't and have sprouted a couple greys just agonizing about it.
