After spending the past three weekends either visiting or hosting family, I’m looking forward to a couple of quiet days at home. Besides trying to catch up on life, laundry, and our DVR list, we don’t have much else planned.

We’re addicted to Homeland, are you? We binge-watched the first two seasons before the premiere of season three, and neither JB nor I thought season two was as awful as we had been warned. Season three is off to a slow start, though, and one major reason is Dana’s story. The Daily Mail explores all the Dana hate.
Like Tristan from Besotted, I try to stay away from anti-aging creams and serums made from chemicals while I’m pregnant. Still, I’m paranoid about wrinkles and fine lines, so I might have to try the Argan Infinity Cream she recommends.
