Hi! Just a quick post to tell you that we're back from vacation, I'm alive, and to sincerely apologize for being the world's worst blogger lately. Seriously...I posted 3 times in July...that is pathetic!! Somehow the time is getting away from (how is it August already?) and though we're thoroughly enjoying our first summer with Maura, it seems like (read - its obvious) this blog is suffering. I will try and do a better job moving forward, but I will warn you that the next month and a half is looking crazy busy 'round here (we've got Maura's Christening - yes, I know she's about to turn 11 months and you're supposed to be baptized when you're a little baby but this is what happens when the godmother lives out of the country, a set of invitations due, an out of state wedding, a block party for my development of 80 houses that I'm in charge of planning, Maura's first birthday party (!!!!) and a bridal shower for my oldest friend that my mom, sister and I are hosting...aaaahhhhh!). However, there will definitely be another Mood Board Monday linky party coming soon (yay, finally!), so stay tuned.
And now on to the actual point of this post! Usually I buy the Gerber little plastic tubs of solid food for Maura (I know, I did have hopes of making my own puree for her, but that dream died when I realized I would be spending all my free time - uh, what free time, you have a baby?! - with my blender), but sometimes I like some of the flavors that you can only get in the real glass jars. Instead of recycling them, I figured they could be used for something since they're so cute, like mini mason jars. Then I remembered a shoe box full of beads I had stashed in our office closet.
So now I'm keeping all my beads in the baby food jars, organized by color. Aren't they pretty! Gotta love stylish storage...it kills 2 birds with 1 stone.
So, is anyone else having trouble keeping up with their blog these days or is it just me? Anybody use their baby food jars for other things?
PS. These are not the first recycled glass jars to make an appearance in our office...I got the big, real mason jars holding stuff too:)
