I’ve been listening to the new John Mayer album, it’s good easy listening. Before this past week, I don’t think I’ve listened to John Mayer in yearsssss. It’s been one of my favorite albums to listen to while I’m in the kitchen either cooking or cleaning
My folks arrived yesterday for a little visit and my sister and I have been brainstorming some “touristy” things to do in Raleigh while they are here. We easily slip into repetitive activities and restaurants and while there is certainly something to be said for a guaranteed great time or meal, it’s also fun to stretch out past the usual sometimes. I asked locals to offer their suggestions of some family-oriented or simply fun things to do, and here were their top suggestions:
Pullen Park – a great park near downtown Raleigh with a train and other small rides.
Hike at Umstead – I’ve been on a few hikes at Umstead but it’s been a while. Loved this idea.
Farmers Market – Raleigh does have a pretty incredible Farmers Market. I thought it would be fun to do a version of the show Chopped and require that most of the ingredients must come from the Farmers Market. Maybe we can do that!
Do you and your husband ever play board games together? Only when we’re with my family, he’s otherwise not much of a board game kind of guy!
Do you still recommend Shani Darden products? I’ve used the retinol and the eye cream and still love the retinol!
Do you have a brand of sunscreen you prefer for the kids? I really love Supergoop or SunBum!
Do you make to-do lists? I rely heavily on Evernote and iCal!
Is it okay to blend a moisturizer with foundation? It is! It may cause the foundation to separate oddly so it’s worth a test before wearing it out of the house but generally, I find it to simply thin the foundation out for a more sheer finish.
