When I was visiting my grandparents in Idaho, I noticed that my grandma used mason jars as a storage system. When I got home I bought a few jars, but eventually forgot about the genius space saving idea. Last week I finally pulled them out and I love using them! They are especially handy when I want to open a Diet Coke, because if I don't finish it, I can pop the lid on the top of the jar, and voila! Carbonation saver! It helps to have striped or pretty pink straws when drinking from mason jars, too.
The post office has gorgeous and classy ship stamps right now, so I'd suggest stalking up (and they're "forever" stamps). Is it possible to ever have too many stamps? (hint: the answer begins with the letter "N" and ends with the letter "O")
A few things we're watching for on ebay and Amazon:
the Motorola Digital Video Baby Monitor. When Lincoln's 6 month hits, he's off to his own room. Even though he's fifteen steps away, during the night this would be so nice to have, so that I don't have to get up and check on him every time I hear a noise. So I dream of this video baby monitor when I sleep lately.
the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light. There are 786 reasons I want this other than the fact it is pure awesomeness packed into 11 pounds.
Isn't it funny how having a baby completely changes your wish list? So baby stuff aside (for the moment), I've had my eyes (and heart and soul) on these Frye riding boots. Although they are pricey, I have to argue that riding boots will stay current regardless of the changing trends, so they seem like a wardrobe piece that's worth the investment.
And I'm loving Foster The People lately ...
Last of all, I love that it's Labor Day weekend and finally cooling off! I hope everyone is enjoying their three day weekend (it helps if these guys are playing in the background)!
