If I Were . . . A Working Girl!

If I Were . . . A Working Girl (in an actual office where I couldn't wear my flannel pajama pants!)

I would totally have to use this bag.

Love the look and the size! Perfect for carrying papers from office to home, in case I were a telecommunter part-time! :)

Bag by neikodesigns, click image to go to the listing!

These shoes would be a must, if I had an executive's salary! I love them. I might not get any actual work done while wearing them, though. I'd just sit and stare at my feet all day.

If I were the sort who could wear hats without looking like a nerdbucket, this is one I would choose. It would be a fantastic compliment to my MaryJanes above! :)

's hats are anything BUT boring!

If I Were . . . Eco-Friendly!

Ok, so I try to be eco-friendly already - but I know I can do better! Here are some things I'd like to buy on Etsy to further the cause, when I have the money. :)

Click on the pictures to go to the Etsy listings!

These swiffer replacement pads by QuiltingMama are so ingenious! I want to go buy a swiffer just so I can get these cloths.

Once I get my kitchen remodeled and hard flooring down (who carpets a kitchen anyway??) I plan on buying both!!

I would love to bring my own grocery bags to the store with me. This is another item on my eco-friendly "to do" list. There is quite a selection on Etsy. It was hard to choose!

I picked this one by chicaroja because the material was rescued! Double eco-friendly!

And who says having the girly flu has to be depressing? Try out these fun eco-friendly washeable pads! I want to!

Tamarack has great feedback and lovely patterns!

If I Were . . . Pregnant!

If I were . . . pregnant (I'm not) then I would add these to my wishlist:

This diaper bag by PinkLemonadeBags is adorable! I love the prints and the colors. Plus it has three interior pockets to hold the small stuff. And it has a magnetic closure so if it tips, everything doesn't go spilling everywhere.

This tummy time taggy pillow is brilliant! Baby gets tummy time, can play with the tags, or pull on the rings. Plus the love bug fabric is super cute!

Click on the image to go to the listing or visit HappyBabee for more great items!

Last, but certainly not least (there are so many things I'd want, I'll have to revisit this topic again later!). . .

This handcrafted baby powder looks lovely. I really do prefer buying my B&B products from handmade sources, the ingredients are usually so much better for you than store bought and the artificial and chemical additions are a lot less, if any!

The nice thing about powder is that a little goes a long way, so this would last!
Three cheers for SpaceMonkey!

New Blog Features. . .If I Were. . .

Welcome! I've decided to do a new fun blog feature called "If I Were. . ."

Every so often (I will aim for 2-3 times a week) I will post an Etsy item (or items) I would buy "If I Were. . ." someone specific or looking for something specific.

For example, my very first one is:

If I Were . . . a hippie chick in NYC, I would buy this:

I love this skirt! I love the colors and the drape,
and could totally see myself hanging out as a young
single hippie chick in NYC for some reason.

Skirt by LovePeaceAndDye.

Click the image to go to the listing.

And I would want this shoulder bag from BlackBags:

It has lots of pockets, an adjustable shoulder strap,
and a reinforced bottom to help it stand up when
you put it down.
Plus I love the calico fabric and the cute trim!

I've been Tagged!

Apparently this is a blog game where you tell seven interesting tidbits about yourself and then "tag" seven other bloggers to do the same and pass it on. So here goes, I am always willing to do anything once, and it is a fun way to meet each other.

1. I have a moth phobia. I know it is silly, but if a moth gets anywhere near me, I can NOT control my reaction, which is usually to hit the floor and crawl away screaming.

2. The Dr just told me on Monday that I have high cholesterol (at age 30! It runs in the family. . .) So I am supposed to give up butter and eggs, amongst other things. No way in hell I am giving up butter. Bring on the heart attack, I don't care. (Ok, so maybe I will use butter only on things where taste really matters - like toast.)

3. I have a birthmark on my arm that didn't show up until I was 12. My mother was convinced it was dirt and kept trying to wash it off for me, even though I told her it was a birthmark. She is a nurse and it still makes me a little happy that I was right and she was wrong.

4. I've only seen my dad cry two times. Once at his mother's funeral and the other time was my fault. I still harbor guilt over this, but at the same time, I am happy because it was proof that he loved me! (not that he doesn't prove it in many other ways!)

5. My husband is amazing in so many ways, but my favorite thing is to sit and watch him do artwork. I love him most in those moments. And also when he is playing with our kids.

6. If I could marry a food, I would be Mrs. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

7. Or Mrs. Steak.

And now for the seven people I am tagging:


Thanks! This has been fun! :)

Pity Party - Table for Four?

Geez. Ok, so almost three weeks ago, my husband got T-boned on his way home from work (his third day at his new job). They still haven't decided whether or not to total the truck or repair it, which is annoying. He was fine, so was the guy who hit him, thank God.

Yesterday on my way home from my mom's, I got rear-ended in a three car crash. No one was hurt, my two boys were fine, and it wasn't my fault. But good grief! Now we have both our vehicles in need of repair. It is frustrating.

So, I am throwing a pity party for my family of four! Stop by my Etsy shop and save 15% on any two or more items! :) Just put "pity party" in the notes to seller and I will invoice you!

On a brighter note, my 3 1/2 year old thought being in an accident was the best thing ever! He hasn't stopped talking about it. I think I have heard about the car that knocked our bumper off and broke all its tail lights at least 134 times so far. ;) This has truly eclipsed Grandpa's tail light breaking accident back in October.
