A few favorites and the #1 highest endorphin producing food

Today has been a great catch up day!  I had Grandma lined up to watch my kindergartener while I went to a field trip.  Happy day!  The field trip was rained out and my son still wanted to go to Grandmas.  I don’t think I’ve had this many hours in an empty house, ever!  So, I got caught up on my housework, emails and scheduling.  While I was ironing, which I almost never do, I watched Dr. Oz.  Again, something I never do.  I like Dr. Oz.  He speaks my language.  He talked about hair care, the benefits of fiber, the superfood quinoa, and cocoa!  Besides exercise, the #1 endorphin producing food is COCOA.  Not chocolate, the bitter 70% or more pure cocoa.  I love this stuff!

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Skin softener
  • Mood booster

Yesterday, we went to Park City to shop around.  The leaves are changing and this is one of my most favorite sites to see!

This led me to think of a few favorites as of late!  Number 1!!!  I found a new favorite smell.  I walked into Bath and Body works and immediately smelled the best thing ever!!  I found a candle burning and it was called Pumpkin Pecan Waffle.
