Slip Slidin' Away

Tonight I found out why Birkenstocks were typically made for people in California. I never fell all the way down.... but I definitely chose the wrong shoes to wear to Vienna in the snow!!

Anja Lasagna is still kind of a sickie, but she will DEFINITELY be the absolute cutest 12-week-and-a-day old little girl at Mary's Circle party tomorrow!! She is going to be wearing her new denim jumper dress! And for a jacket she will wear her pink furry one with the ears on the hood.... it was the most groundhoggish thing I could find.

I really like Vienna. I miss vanilla chai so much these days though... but it's funny to be in a place where you are clearly the racial minority and not feel at all out of place! Tonight there were probably only 4 or 5 white people in the whole place, and it was pretty full, but I've never felt out of place there when it's like that.

But while we were there Bethany Jones came in. She's getting married in May and her engagement ring looks a lot like my sister's. She drooled over Anja, and she was wearing a coat with really pretty buttons.

I can't get enough orange juice these days. YUM.

If anyone knows of any really great lotions, my hands are so dry I'm not sure they'll ever recover, and I could use some theraputic suggestions.

The best thing I have found for dry hands is...believe it or not No Crack Cream. The only problem being that I always got it at Wells Yeager not sure where in Laf to find it now. This is their website http://www.nocrack.com/ Good luck and hope it helps

Cornhuskers works best for us.

Hm, No Crack Cream... is it very greasy? Cornhuskers works, but it's so greasy on my hands.

Delurking to say you should try CeraVe. It feels like it's going to be greasy, but in a very short time (minute or two) it eases up. It's really cool when you put it on all over because the next day when you take a shower your skin is really slippery. It's extremely awesome for dry skin!

Hand creme's work best when put on just as you are going to bed. That way you won't wash it off for hours and this give it the most time to do it's thing.

this probably doesn't help, but I got Arbonne lotion from a friend who's an Arbonne rep, and it's the best lotion I've ever used. I used to have to put lotion on my hands every few hours to keep my knuckles from bleeding, but I can even go a few days without the Arbonne and my hands are still really, really soft.
It's expensive, but it lasts a long time. I didn't get the hand cream, I got the body lotion. And you have to find an Arbonne rep...
