What’s Next For The Obamas? Michelle Promises They’re ‘Not Gone’

Michelle Obama is still fighting the good fight when it comes to issues that matter to her. 

Obama sat down with Sam Kass, the former White House chef and senior advisor for nutrition policy, in Washington, D.C., on Friday for the Partnership for a Healthier America summit to address childhood obesity. And she took aim at President Donald Trump’s policies

“This is where you really have to look at motives,” she said. “You really have to stop and think, ‘Why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school? What is wrong with you and why is that a partisan issue?’ Why would that be political? What is going on?” 

Access to healthy school lunches was the former first lady’s focus while in the White House, and Trump’s administration has been rolling back those efforts

The Obamas took some time for themselves after Trump’s inauguration in January, inking book deals, vacationing and just generally living their best lives

But they’re back and they’re not going anywhere. 

“We’re not gone, we’re just breathing, y’all. Let us breathe,” Obama insisted, per People magazine. “We’ve got to get our new lives set up.”

“When you hear me getting riled up in this chair, it’s not politics, it’s parenting that’s really moving me,” she said, adding that everyone needs to “put aside our politics … to not be cynical … to not give up.”

She’s certainly not.

“You’ve got me as a partner as long as I can be of use,” she said. “So the question for you is, where do you want me? Just let me know and I’ll be here.”

New Perfume Promises The Fragrance Of A Kitten’s Neck

If you enjoy the gentle nuzzle from a soft, tiny kitten, we’ve got good news. Demeter Fragrance Library, a New York-based company that develops fragrances based on everyday scents, has developed a new perfume that will bring memories of a dozen kitten cuddles.

Get ready to spritz yourself with Demeter’s “Kitten Fur.”

“Now after 15 years of effort, Demeter has captured the olfactory essence of the warmth and comfort of that purrfect spot, just behind kitten’s neck,” the company wrote on its website. 

The scent of “Kitten Fur” is being sold in several Demeter products, including cologne, roll-on perfume oil, body lotion, shower gel and a diffuser oil, in case you wanted an entire room to smell like one giant kitten.

Prices range from $ 6 for a half-ounce of cologne to $ 39.95 for four ounces of cologne.

Demeter develops and sells of wide range of scents, including more traditional fragrances such as “Jasmine” and “Sweet Orange,” or peculiar ones like “Popcorn,” “Earthworm” and “Fuzzy Balls.” (The last one, in case you were curious, smells like “the woosh of a freshly opened can of tennis balls.”)

But it isn’t the first company to attempt to emulate the scent of cat.

Felissimo, a Japanese mail-order company, in 2015 developed a fabric spray that smells like a cat’s head, which is supposedly similar to baked bread. The company recently developed a lip gloss that is said to feel like a cat’s wet nose.

So what does a kitten’s neck smell like? 

Demeter’s Facebook fans said their cats smell like a number of different things, including honey, baby powder and cinnamon spice bread, and a combination of a “newborn baby, a freshly baked loaf of bread and the scent of home.” At least one person suggested “litter dust and cat spit.”

Whatever the fragrance ends up smelling like, let’s just hope it smells more sweet than foul, and it doesn’t trigger cat allergies.

7 Promises to Prove I Love You

2015-05-01-1430441216-9087739-44066633_e0ab44de09_z.jpg

The day we met was the first time in my life that I thought I would have a heart attack. Your beauty was stunning, but your overall presence was too much for me to handle.

We were young, 17 and 18 years old, but I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you. I had never been the kind of person to believe in love at first sight, but I was head-over-heels in love. I knew I loved you before you ever said a word to me.

You hated me at first, but we got to know each other, and you started to feel the same way. Our wedding day was the happiest day of my life. I’m tearing up as I think about it.

I wish the story ended there, but getting married young had its challenges. We struggled with getting to know each other and communicating. We struggled with money and my weight issues.

We separated and almost went through a divorce. We called it off and found a way back to each other. As we celebrate 17 years of marriage, there are seven promises I need to make to you. These are my vows for the rest of the time we have on this earth together.

1. I promise to put you first

When we said, “I do,” there were vows I made to you. I promised to put you first, but the truth is I haven’t. I reaffirm my promise, but this time I will follow through. I will put your needs above my own. I will give you first place in my heart and life.

2. I promise to remember I’m the problem

A wise counselor told us that if you have a problem with your spouse, the problem is with yourself. I know this but have made it seem like you’re the problem. Instead of making a big deal about things that won’t matter in the grand scheme of things, I’ll work through my issues on my own. They aren’t major and aren’t important.

3. I promise never to cheat on you

I love you more than life itself, and will not allow myself to get to a place that puts me in a situation that leads to infidelity. You have my heart, mind, and body. I will prove my love to you by not sharing them with another. My lips and body are only designed to work with your lips and body; I will keep it that way.

4. I promise to communicate

In the past, I have tried to be “Superman” and keep what I’m dealing with in my business and life to myself. I promise to let you in and get your opinion. Your perspective gets first place, and I will make sure I honor it. I promise not to go to sleep if I haven’t communicated adequately.

5. I promise NEVER to get physical with you

You are precious and delicate, and the one thing I can’t live without. I promise never to get physical with you. I’m not talking about hitting, I promise to never even make a gesture towards you in anger. I promise to have a better way to deal with my temper.

6. I promise not to be jealous or controlling

In the past, I have struggled with being an insecure, controlling jerk. It’s been some time, but I want to reaffirm my commitment to never again fall victim to these tendencies. I will give you the space you need and trust you. You have given me no reason not to.

7. I promise to choose love every day

Over these last 16 years, we have learned first hand that love isn’t a feeling. It’s a decision. I promise to choose to love every day. I will ignore my feelings, which come and go. I will choose to wake up each day and honor the commitment I made.

I haven’t always been the ideal husband–I know that’s an understatement. Thank you so much for staying with me. I don’t deserve it but thank you for staying. I promise to honor what we’ve built together. I know words are cheap, so I’ll shut up and honor these commitments with action. No more talk, my love will be proven by honoring these seven promises.

24 Promises Every Man Should Make To His Future Wife

By Tom Miller for YourTango

I’ll be 36 by the time this gets published and I’m still not married. According to my mom, I should probably count on staying that way for a while because “all the good ones are taken.”

Little does she know that, sooner or later, I’ll likely marry someone younger or, gawd fahbid, some “poor” divorcee.

I’m not sure if I’m one of the “good ones” or not, but what I am sure about is that I want to have shared values with my future wife — and in return, I’ll promise her the world.

Or more realistically, I will commit to these 24 things:

I will never leave an empty toilet paper roll in the bathroom (or hang a fresh roll upside down like a monster).

  1. I will try to solve your problems instead of just listening and saying, “that sucks.”
  2. I will handle or (delegate handling) any pest problems.
  3. I will only say sh*tty things about your family when they do sh*tty things to you.
  4. I won’t steal your thunder and will always be your biggest cheerleader.
  5. I will eat anything you cook… unless it’s genuinely gross because life is just too short.
  6. I will respond incredibly well to the words “please” and “thank you.”
  7. I won’t get embarrassingly drunk at any event that’s important to you.
  8. I will surprise you with my depth of knowledge about completely unimportant topics regularly.
  9. I will bring home flowers for no reason, and no, I’m not feeling guilty about anything.
  10. I will not share all my passwords with you, nor will I ask for yours.
  11. I will sing the wrong words to songs… loudly.
  12. I will continue to despise reality TV, unless I marry a reality TV star.
  13. I will take athletic endeavors too seriously.
  14. I will make jokes at inappropriate times; you will generally laugh.
  15. I will refer to myself as a hero, not always ironically.
  16. I will lavish you with compliments, mostly sincerely.
  17. I will consult with you for most purchases over1,000 — adjusted for inflation to 2015 currency values — unless it’s a gift for you, or we’re just NASTY rich.
  18. I will cuddle you until I absolutely just need to sleep.
  19. I will not shoplift. This is probably not an issue, but I’m an 8th Commandment guy.
  20. I will not let disagreements with you color my opinion of you as a person.
  21. I will not go vegan.
  22. I will not start a band.
  23. I will help any of your friends move (provided they’re not complete jerks).
  24. I will not (completely) let myself go.

I know, you don’t have to say it: I’ll be a hero husband and all of your friends will be hella-jealous of how much I spoil you.
