Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush

Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush
Liquid/paste blush.
It seems like whenever I carry in my purse or in my suitcase a powder make-up. It ALWAYS brakes. I end up with powder, eye shadow, blush- everywhere, or at least all over the inside of my make-up bag. One time when there was a sale on Make-up I picked up this paste blush. Just because. I think the sale may have been a buy one get one free sale. It sat on my dresser top for a long time, and one day I was packing for a trip and it dawned on me that this blush wouldn't brake and make a mess in my bag. So I put it in my suitcase. And I've been traveling with it ever since. I keep it in my emergency make-up in my purse and in my travel make-up bag for trips. I have even bought their liquid/paste eyeshadow too. It works great, looks great as make-up goes, but never has the mess in your bag. 
Thanks for reading.

When in Rome (movie)

"When in Rome" starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel ( link)
When this was in the theaters it looked like a cute movie and I like Kristen Bell as an actress (stems from my enjoyment of the TV show Veronica Mars. But the movie didn't sound like something my husband would enjoy and not something I felt the need to pay movie theater prices to see. Now that it is available on DVD, I had the opportunity to watch it. I love it. Such a cute movie. It was a much more enjoyable plot then the previews and trailers made it out to be- they did not do this movie justice.
Basic plot: Beth (Kristen Bell) has been overly occupied with achieving success in her career. When out of nowhere her sister Joan (Alexis Dziena) announces she is getting married- in Rome. While at the reception Beth gets herself a little drunk and takes a dip (in her brides maid dress) in a fountain, known as the fountain of love, while there she pulls 5 coins out of the fountain. The supposed legend of this fountain is that you wish for love by throwing in a coin, by the same if you pull a coin out of the fountain the legend says that person will be under your spell.
It is such a cute movie. Maybe not for your husband (although not too bad, I would try to get my husband to watch it with me the next time I watch it).

Flat Out Bread

Flat Out Bread ( link) Flat Out Bread (Official Website)
I bought these at Costco in a huge pack. I bought them and tried to use them. I was looking forward to them because they are only 1 Weight Watcher point each. Compared to most tortillas that is really healthy. I had some people tell me that they were really tasty. I ate them a few times, being completely unimpressed. Now they are sitting in my freezer and fridge taking up space. They are nothing special for how expensive they are. But I know a good number of people who think that for how healthy they are, they are wonderful and yummy. Try them for yourself. But I wouldn't buy a giant package like I did unless you know that you already like them.
Part 2:
I need to use these up. I can't have them in my fridge forever, and I can't get myself to throw them away and waste the money. If you eat them, how do you enjoy them? Do you use them in any recipes? Anyone have any suggestions for their use?
Thanks for reading.

Update:  We tried making homemade pizzas with them as suggested on their site. They were really tasty this way. Good stuff. I should try some more of their recipes.
