Wow I can't believe how much I look a lot like my dad with my new mustache.
Yeah so I am dressed for the cold today. I also had a scarf on.

March is taking this in like a lion thing a bit too seriously. This is an improvement from this morning when the "feels like" was in the negative. My walk to the T was brutal. I live in the water and the winds are awful some mornings. eek. I need a ski mask.
Thank you everyone for your advice here and on Facebook on the cruelty free products.I really really appreciate it. I had been buying more natural and organic products already (because of Dave) so I were pleased to discover last night we had very few things that were tested on animals. Deodorant, dishwasher detergent, toothpaste, clorox wipes, the rest of it was already cruelty free. While to some it might seem I grabbed onto this quick, there were lots of comments on Monday from people talking about animal testing and I was disappointed in myself, hard core. I gotta be honest I thought I was already being a good consumer I wasn't knowing doing any of it. (I wasn't investigating though) and we talked about it and said we are going to approach it exactly how we did Celiac and Gluten free. We have to decide who we will rely on for status, we have to contact questionable companies and we might have to make special trips to get supplies but we are already doing that for GF so it shouldn't be a big deal. With our girls too we don't need to be using such harsh stuff anyways. The toothpaste and deodorant are the only things I might struggle with. I have sensitive teeth and Dave has tooth issues (celiac side effect) so we use Sensodyne and it's the only one we both could use and helped. Tom's didn't work for us. I will be investigating options for when our tube runs out.
Now none of this is 100% easy nor am I going to pretend it is. I have extremely sensitive skin and with Dave's Celiac there are plenty of things that are the "only thing that works for us". Hell I have lots of things I use and am sad that I won't be repurchasing but I have to decide what I am OK and what I am not OK with. It is going to different for everybody. But I'd rather take my chances and try new thing on myself than repurchase things I had been using knowing what they do. I am not judging others if they decide to, it is honestly a very personal decision. I even told Dave I would understand if he didn't want to do it, hell I eat gluten so who am I to judge. But he wants to do it.
He might be a bigger animal lover than I am.
Waffle want to help!
P.S would anyone be interested in hearing about the Shellac nail treatment I had done?
