We arrived at Costco, I filled out the membership form and paid the $55 fee, and we began our shopping adventure. Let me tell you...I was impressed. Tons of organic products, brands that I love, good looking meat and produce (which I did not buy, as I forgot to bring my cooler), and fairly reasonable prices. $40 later, we had the hand soap our household so desperately needed, Nutella which Will so desperately wanted, a ginormous bottle of vinegar, and this. Feast your eyes upon this glorious purchase.

Here is a good blog post describing oil pulling, for those of you who haven't heard of it. I kind of had the "eh, what's the harm in trying?" mentality when it came to OP, because I'm certainly not opposed to whiter teeth and good oral hygiene. I started last week, upon the urging of a friend, and I have to say...so far I'm impressed. I feel good, my teeth look shiny and whiter (which is a huge benefit if you're an avid coffee drinker like myself), and I've also noticed the absence of migraines, which were plaguing me over the past month. Coincidence? Perhaps, but as I said, ain't no harm in a little coconut oil.
The kids? They did great yesterday, in part because they were promised a "fancy lunch and playtime" at Chik-Fil-A if they behaved at Costco.
