Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia

Remember a Merry Infomercial Christmas? I thought I'd give the update on what we got. Jeff's sister Laura gave us a Chia Gourmet Herb Garden! 

I don't know if she also bought one for a friend and herself, but we're sure glad she gave one to us. Jeff takes good care of our gourmet garden every day.



I am an avid chap stick applier. But not just any chap stick, it has to be Natural Ice. The only problem is, they only sell it at select gas stations. It is so hard to find! My mom seems to come across it a lot more than I do, so I always tell her to stock up for me. This was one of my Christmas presents from my mom:
Now, you might think that's a lot, but mere weeks after Christmas Jeff and I were leaving the house and I realized I was chap stickless. My hands were full so I made Jeff search the house for one. He was wandering around the apartment saying things like, "How is it so hard to find one of these? You just got like 6 of them. Where'd they all go? There's NO WAY you have gone through all of those already!" I hadn't gone through all of them, but I do lose track of them pretty easily. They eventually showed up, though, along with the other 8 my mom got me for my birthday. That should last me another month.
One night Jeff was wondering why I love Natural Ice and only Natural Ice, so he looked up some reviews on the internet to see if I was the only crazy addict out there. It was so funny. There was not one bad review, and every one of them was like, "I have to stock up when I find it because they don't sell it anywhere anymore." "I always have to carry Natural Ice with me wherever I go." and this was our favorite because it's me in 30 years...
"I have used this product since I was a small girl and I am now 50 yrs. old. The packaging has changed over the years but the product has changed very little. I am a very faithful daily user. I can't go to sleep at night unless I put a heavy coating of Mentholatum Natural Ice on my lips. I also use it in the summer sun for protection especially when we are going fishing or near water. I love the cooling feeling your lips have when you apply it. I hope they never quit making this lip balm or I will go crazy."

Here's to a great year of gourmet herbs and chap-free lips!

Jeff, let's hope those chia herbs help you get some chia-licious meals out of that cute wife of yours!!! I'm sure the chapstick helps ensure some chia-licious kisses from her!

And by the way--good job on helping to make her twenty-first birthday a memorable one!

I am glad you like the herb garden. I didn't get one for my friend or myself. We love out puff cooker. We had eggs puffs tonight for dinner and Kaelynn ate 7 of them. I have never tried Natural Ice chapstick. But I have an obession with mentholatum, so maybe I would like it
