Genius winter item

Why has it taken so long for me to find the sleeveless sweater?  I've looked for years and when I finally found it I ordered five for obvious reasons.  It keeps your core warm.  It looks cute under coats.  It doesn't add arm bulk.  I broke out my first of the season today and Maisy said, "Mom you are rocking the Duggar look".  That messes with my mojo for sure but I still like the practicality of it.....aaaand my mojo just took it's last breath.

Conversations in Crazytown

Me:  Today is the last day of the circus.  And guess what?  You can ride elephants.

Maisy:  Real ones?

Me:  Yep.

Her:  Can you feed them Mexican food?  Cause that is like number one on my bucket list.  Feeding an elephant Mexican food.

Me:  (internal voice: why does it always have to go like this?)  Anything specific?  Nachos?

Her:  I was thinking rice and beans.


Smell like your season

Fun fact.  I like a seasonal scent.  And the more obvious the better.  Lavender in the summer.  Pine in the winter.  Right now is prime Campfire! season.  And I try to coordinate the smelly things in my house like diffusers and candles and dish soap.  So I've compiled a list.  Here, my friends, is Campfire!

Candle - Diptyque Feu de Bois (all you really need - nails it)
Kitchen soap - Caldrea Plum Bergamot Clove (Amazon sells it and it's amazing)
Perfume - Jo Malone Wild Fig and Cassis (the personal scent equivalent of Feu de Bois)

The Olsen twins just look like a campfire would smell.  Smoky, wooly, slightly damp.
