purse wipes.

Mother Rabbit is a big fan of flushable wipes.  Mother Rabbit appreciates clean things and one of my mantras is "have wipes, will travel".  I purchase this particular purse-size version in the travel-size aisle at Target for $1.   Besides the obvious, I enjoy using them to wipe off my hands after pushing a shopping cart or maneuvering a public place.  Did you know that the germ-iest place on an airplane is the fold-down tray?  Not for me, because I always give it a quick wipe.  The purse wipes also come in handy when a spill happens.  Recently in a supermarket checkout lane the woman next to me dropped a container of sour-cream-looking-stuff on her sandal-ed foot.  Luckily, she was standing next to me.  She was profoundly grateful to have someone hand her a series of moist wipes, and before long she could exit the store gracefully.
I recommend seeing how handy you could be with your own set of traveling purse wipes.


Lululemon is an athletic wear company out of Canada that is all the rage.  When I started teaching the Ultimate Cardio class at Anytime Fitness in Oakland my girls told me that I needed some Lulu.  So on my last trip to Dallas I made my first Lululemon purchases and I am supposedly looking much more hip.  But the real scoop on what makes the Lululemon workout pants worth the extra $ is how they make your behind look.  (I do not feel like Mother Rabbit should say "butt" on her blog.)  I guess I passed that test because daughter #3 said "Mom, those look great on you... you don't have an old lady butt anymore."  I think that was a complement...

Anyway, my intention in sharing about Lulu was not so you could be tuned in to how much more shapely I might be looking at workout time, but because with every Lululemon purchase you receive a handy workout bag.  Not only that, but the bag is covered with verbiage that is worth repeating, and Mother Rabbit did want to share some of these wise words. Here are a few of my favorites:

SWEAT once a day to regenerate your skin.

BREATHE DEEPLY and appreciate the moment. 

Stress is related to 99% of all illness.

Your OUTLOOK ON LIFE is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself.

Friends are more important than money.


Waking up two days in a row uninspired? CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Sunscreen absorbed into your skin might be worse than sunshine.  GET THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SUNSHINE.

Do one thing a day that scares you.

Observe a plant before & after watering and relate these benefits to your body and brain.
