Craigslist

Craigslist is awesome. It's a giant garage sale with so little overhead I've found myself wishing I could sell everything I own, just for the simplicity. Saturday night I posted an ad to sell some baby furniture that we no longer need. The toddler has outgrown her pack n play, highchair, and travel system, so Craigslist yeilded four interested parties, one of which took it all for a great deal for her coming grandchild and cleaned out my storage area, all before 11am on Sunday. LOVE IT. Now...what else can I sell.

Jeans

Wouldn't it be nice if jeans made of denim were still available? without all the spandex and stretching. I'm tired of the thigh grabbing jeans. What happened to good old jeans that didn't shimmy when you walked?

Life List

I guess this will be my life list record. In no particular order.

1. Vacation in Greece
2. Learn to cook one actual meal
3. Learn CPR
4. Vacation in BoraBora, in an over the water hut


Obviously, more to come. I'm not going to retro list things I've already done, like visit Hawaii, Aruba, Cancun, get married, have kids, buy a house, etc. Those things are kind of old news and not really life altering.

Actually i just discovered the 'lists' widget from blogger, so the Life list will be a widget in the sidebar. it's better there anyway.

New Purse, I love you


So my former D&B purse started to yellow. I took good care of it, stored it in a rubbermaid bin, didn' t leave it sitting in the sun. I don't know why it started to yellow, so I contacted D&B and they recommend I return it to them for evaluation. A couple weeks later, I was given the option to trade it in, and given $70 toward a new one (at $140+). I love D&B purses, so I didn't want to keep the old yucky yellow one, and who doesn't want a new purse...so...I did it. This is my new favorite thing ever. My favorite purse for sure.

Blended Shadow Little Nina - in HOT PINK. That's not mild or easy on the eyes pink, its HOT fuschia pink. It's so awesome.

Here I Go

I've been thinking about actual blogging for awhile. I think for now i'll mostly use this as a storage spot for my life list - inspired by MightyGirl.com of course. I didn't think it was that important, until I started thinking of the things I wanted to be sure to do in my lifetime and pair that with my memory loss due to child rearing. I better make a list or I'll never remember what it is I want to do.
