Wednesday Me For Works

This week, Works For Me Wednesday is BACKWARDS!!! I post a dilemma, and you, my dear readers, answer it for me! I know i don't get a lot of comments, can anyone help this week? Thanks!

I have a couple...

What are some good, tasty yet nutritious snacks I can send with my kids to school? They have to be "10 minute snacks", meaning they have to be able to be eaten in 10 minutes or less and healthy. I always struggle finding good snacks to send (kids eat lunch at school).

My face keeps breaking out like a teenage boy. I can attribute a lot of that to the summer weather, but are there any good acne meds/face washes? Proativ doesn't work for me, and I hate having zits!! ewww!!!

And thirdly...I have a wedding to go to in October. I am not a skinny lady, and I need to find a cute dress to wear, where are some places to shop at? Do Spanx really work?

I haven't really had much acne since high school, but suddenly, at the beginning of this pregnancy I was breaking out. I went to my dermatologist to have a skin cancer screening and decided to ask. She recommended I start micro-dermabrasion. You just lay on a table for 15 minutes once a week, and after 5 treatments, you go back for monthly maintenance. It feels like a really rough cat tongue licking your face- no pain, just a weird feeling. Now my fine lines are gone, my skin feels so soft, and I haven't had a zit in forever!

Thanks! I might try to do that at home and get a kit I can do myself.

Ditto on the dermatologist done micro-dermabrasion (not the home kit). For cute dresses in larger sizes, try: Lane Bryant, Old Navy (online), Torrid, and Nordstrom.

Here are a few snacks I plan omn sending with my Little Man to preschool with starting next week.....

-Carrot sticks with Ranch dip
-Crackers with cheese slices
-trail mix (raisins, cheerios, mini crackers, dreid fruit, etc.)
-Apple slices or Celery Sticks with PB to dip into
-Peanut Butter and Jelly Roll-ups (just take a peice of wheat bread, cut off the crusts and smear with PB & Jelly and roll up)

As far as finding dress...I atually have a wedding this weekend and scored a dress at Ross on the cheap. It is absolutely beautiful!! Marshalls is also a great place to look as well!!

oh yeah...spanx work! I can get into clothes are are 1-2 sizes too small, feel fantastic, & look great when I have on my spanx.

And the other great thing...the lady that created spanx recently created a line called assets specifically for target...so it's a VERY similiar product for a significant savings. I haven't tried the assets line yet, but you can bet when it's time to replace my spanx, I'll be checking out that line.

hope that helps. :)

Snacks - Carrots and Trail Mix are my kids favorites

Acne - I've tried many things since being a teenager, including many prescriptions, and what actually worked the best was when I stopped washing my face at night. Doesn't sound right, but it helped my skin.
