Let's say you have a stainless steel cook top with dried on food. If you use any kind of cleaning product on this it streaks and even with cleanser it takes a lot of scrubbing.
Get a clean washcloth really damp.
Cook in microwave for 1 minute.
It will be steaming hot. (I use a dish towel to get it out of the microwave because it is so hot.) At this point your washcloth is a steam cleaning machine.
It will get your stainless steel cook top spotless in less than a minute.
You might recognize the sweater, head band and flip flops from that post. Now sitting in my daughter's closet. Along with a skirt and a tank.
This is for a contest, wish me luck.

Last night at book club, we discussed this:
My friend Eric just notified me of this book:
I have no words. But am definitely going to check it out.

This just happened today.
And my volume is broken, so I can never hear. But for all intents and purposes, it still works.
My contract is up with my current provider in 3 weeks. On that date I will be getting a new provider AND new phone.
If this one can last that long.
I brought my Garnet Hill dress which is so easy to pack (no ironing.) But somehow forgot my shoes (cute little black sling-back pumps with bows.)
I'm not sure the pictures do it justice for just how silly I looked. I looked like the Amish or Mennonite women I see occasionally here in the Midwest: long dress with tennis shoes. (no offense to these lovely women but I just don't think tennis shoes go well with dresses, call me crazy.) I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to be seen in public in such an outfit but couldn't miss the chance to go to the temple.
I had a wonderful session

I heart Target.

Click on the link and read the article. It's short and it's got me thinking.

And I found it: Light Silver Sage.
(Makes sense I love it since all my other paint colors are Restoration Hardware too.)

Not cool wallpaper like my friend Jessica:
I found some wallpaper on clearance at Target (I know, Target, right?) and today put it to good use. Lining drawers:
It even makes my Tupperware look pretty:
P.S. I am not actually gluing it, just stapling. I just can't commit to it long term.
I add a big dollop on top.

I know some women love designer (expensive) jeans. I have actually never bought a pair. Shocking but true. Two reasons:
1. A lot of designer jeans have funky back pockets: embroidery or flaps with metal buttons. I prefer plain.
2. Let's be honest: I can buy a pair of Hudson jeans or Joe's jeans, or 7 For All Mankind, for say $180. Or I can buy Long and Leans for $60 and spend the extra $120 on shirts or shoes.
I'm curious: what kind of jeans do you like?

I love this skirt at Old Navy. I can't wait to try it on. It just looks like the perfect summer skirt.
I adore the red too, plus love the blue shoes with it.
