Nat: Dang. It had to be a few months ago when I was in an online meeting with a bunch of professors and students. I was the lead instructor for the meeting. In short, I had a kid wake up, thought I put my mic on mute (put the recording on pause) and then proceeded to scream for my husband as my child was screaming bloody murder.

  1. YES on word verification Kel. SO frustrating.

    Amen on napping as a hobby Nat!

    Kelli, so how much frank and lavender to coconut oil? Does the coconut oil not solidify in the roller?

    Oh those shakes are amazing from Chick Fil A Kelli!

    Sweet Stuff? Cutest hubby nickname ever Nat!

    Love the way you both answered that last one.

    FAB post!!!!!!!!

    1. It's frctionated coconut oil (stays in liquid form) and you can get it at a great price It's fractionated coconut oil (stays in liquid form) and you can get it at a great price on Amazon. I will tell Kelli to give the exact recipe, I am always having to ask her what to add with what. :)

      And I can't for the life of me remember why I started calling him Sweet Stuff, but I know it was around date #2 (and he calls me Pink).

  2. Yes to all of this :) I knew that I had things in common with you . P& P and word verification

  3. Kelli - I am envious of your memory!

    Nat - I recommend using Windows Live Writer for composing/editing blog posts. And with the Dynamic Template plugin - HEAVEN.

    And Nat, that is my biggest fear - not muting the phone when I thought I did. OMG I feel ya!! And Pitch Perfect is a great movie! I actually didn't get why everyone was obsessed with it the first time I watched it, but once I watched it again I got it. It's one of the few movies I can rewatch over and over.


Word verification stinks--- but spammers are worse. Thank you for your patience!
