As we pulled out of our parking space this morning, I saw something that was under our car. At first I was like WTF has fallen off and how much is it gonna cost?!!!
But then I saw it…
This guy was about 12-15 inches long (shell only) and sleepy. After checking him out, he slowly walked away towards the grass and bushes next to our house. I’m thinking he lives in or near the creek/pond at our house and will be on the lookout for a nest somewhere.
Normally I don’t like 2 in 1 grinders, but this one has changed my mind. It has simplicity in all the right spots: filling, cleaning, changing grind size, and using it at any time during the cooking/eating process. And the look of it compliments a wide range of kitchen/dining room designs.
It’s a touch too tall for the cabinet shelf where I usually keep my salt and pepper, but it looks so good that’s a minor issue as it will probably live on the counter or dining room table. Lids on both ends keep stray bits from dirtying your surfaces, but are quickly and easily removed when you need to use it.
It also is ADJUSTABLE and really made a very fine grind of both salt and pepper-similar to what you would find in the standard containers at the grocery store.
One thing I didn’t like was the giant logo on the thing. Such a Beautiful stainless finish and ruined by wording-this is a personal pet peeve of mine; I always feel like if I pay for an item, I should not have to advertise for them.
All in all a great product. YOU CAN BUY IT HERE for only $12.67
A couple weeks ago, I needed a lighter weight bedspread. SO I decided I would quilt one.
I had some pretty awesome fabrics for a pretty sparkly green and blue color scheme. You probably can’t tell, but some of these fabrics have SILVER SPARKLE.
So after lots of searching online and through my seldom used stash of books…I used a fairly easy pattern, but have never been great at cutting, sewing and matching pieces up evenly. I DID follow a suggestion and actually iron every single seam. Mind you, I used the chain method SHOWN BEST HERE and sewed and ironed all the pieces assembly line style.
It went together beautifully until the end when I was concerned about sewing the LARGE blocks together. It didn’t seem like they would match up straight. But I just went one by one, and matched up seams and it came together beautifully. Next I knew I just wanted a thin backing and no batting in the middle. I had a sheet from my favorite store IKEA that I used . I even did some top stitching with a metallic thread.
I am really pleased with it. It is getting a lot of use and hope that I can actually take some decent pics…maybe even make the bed more often!
I just found out that Amazon Prime will be offering a wardrobe service VERY soon. I used to be a member of Gwynnie Bee until I lost weight, and they went up in price. I haven’t subscribed to any of the other clothing subscription services because i was never very certain of their styles and sizes, and MONEY MONEY BUDGET! But Amazon Wardrobe makes things so easy, and I rely on reviews for sizing and quality info-especially with the market flooded with teeny tiny chinese sized items.
This is going to be AWESOME! I can’t wait to find out more about this service./
Check out this little video for a bit more info.
These are the cutest Tea Infusers! First of all the hang on your cup. They are silicone, and they are Manatees! Get it!?
When I first opened these, I thought they were going to be another cheap tea infuser I end up throwing away after the first try. I was WRONG!
First of all, they are made of a thicker silicone than others I have tried. This makes them easier to hold and fill. This also makes them Easier to close and STAY closed.
So we filled it up about 2/3 of the way with our herbal blend…plopped it on the edge of our cup. You have to make sure the infusers butt is fully under the water-which could be tricky depending on the cup you are using, and if you aren’t filling it up with hot water all the way. Let it steep for a couple minutes, then pull that sucker out and enjoy.
Now the best part: This was AMAZINGLY easy to clean. I just rinsed it a couple times under the faucet and DONE-no stuck bits in the holes, nothing under the edges. Perfect!
You can get these RIGHT HERE for $11.97 which is a bit more than I normally would spend…But you do get 2 and they are GREAT quality! And it’s funny to say “Oh The Hu-Mana-Tea!” and watch your own Mini-Me roll her eyes and try to stifle a giggle.

60 Gummies in Pineapple, Orange and Strawberry Flavor
PECTIN BASED – GELATIN FREE – SUGAR FREE – GLUTEN FREE
We are forgetful and picky. We often forget
to eat our vitamins. I got these for my mini-me, but I tried one myself. They have a nice texture that isn’t plastic-like, and good flavor that makes them seem a bit more like candy than something in the realm of medicine (definite plus for the kids).
They are sort of like those gum drop like fruit slices they have in many stores. They aren’t overly sticky or rubbery either. They don’t stick a lot in the bottle.
The only negative is that they all appear to be the same color/flavor in the bottle. An off-orange: maybe it’s our lighting, or maybe it’s that we are so used to
bright artificial colors in our food.
As long as it provides the vitamins they say they provide (and there’s no reason to think they don’t), they’re a winner to me.
They are on sale HERE for $5.99 for 60. Depending on the age of your child, they may need to take 1-3 a day.
