Treasure Tuesday on Thursday


So I have been cruising around the web, connected by Shannon's "Rocks In My Dryer," and I found this blog, called "Faithful Mommy." Yes, they are full of good sound womanly advice. You won't find alot of tips on Fantasy Football or Truck shows (buy, hey maybe you will). They do alot of home repairs, taking care of kids, and taking care of yourself advice.

"Faithful Mommy" has started a link sight of "Treasure Tuesday" to have people share things that they treasure. Faithful Mommy posts pics of her house and things that she loves like her baby grand piano. I have plenty of stuff like that, but its all at my parents house. For those who don't know, I live in a VERY VERY small apartment. Since KW and I moved 400miles the day after we got married, we did not get to take any of these wonderful treasures with us. Hopefully, we will recieve some of these later when we move to Michigan.

So here is my Treasure Tuesday post on Thrusday:

Natural Ice Cherry

Not only is this the best Lip Balm EVER. It has SPF and tingles wonderfully when applied. When I got my first tube, I do not remember. I fell in love, but soon realized that I could not find any more. I created a massive tri-state search in every drugstore, grocery store, convenient store, department store. And still no luck. My youngest brother went on a trip (out west), and he came upon some at a ski lodge (of course they would be there, its pefect when you are skiing). He sent me several glorious tubes which I cherished. But then through the course of time, I used or lost them all. Then came the next statewide search. I found the yucky mint kind: NO GOOD. I emailed the company who assured me that this product was located at my local CVS or Walgreens (LIARS!). So I was going to the gas station one day with no Natural Ice on my mind (I had already switched to Burts Beeswax, which is good but it is no Natural Ice). And there on the checkout was a boot* full of Cherry flavored Natural Ice. I cleaned them out. Finally, two years later I ran out. I was devastated. Someone mentioned using drugstore.com, and I couldn't have typed fast enough. AND JOY OF JOYS they had it! I ordered 20 of them, delivered to my door and it was worth every red cent. They are now spread out in between my purses, coats, and drawers at home and the office. And thankfully, I will know where to go when I run out again.

My Treasure this Thursday and forever: Natural Ice Cherry.

*the boot wasn't an acutal used, leather boot it was an acrylic "show" boot...I don't know what it had to do with Natural Ice though.

If it makes you feel any better, it took B and I 4 years to actually unpack all our wedding presents for use in our own house! We always live in the tiniest places (with one-butt kitchens, ha ha ha!)
