Tweet 1 - Borax - WOW! I never thought I'd love something so much. This stuff is AWESOME! It will clean absolutely ANYTHING! I scrubbed off some gunk on the fan above the stove that had been there, I'm sure, for years and it came off like buttah! I have since scrubbed pans, cookie sheets, & a tea kettle. I have also added it to the dishwasher - where it helped clean off some of the hard water calcification build up AND got our utensils & glasses super shiny. ***LOVE***
2 - Mei Tai baby carriers - I am going to get a custom mei tai made by NuzzleMe Creations and sell my beloved BabyHawk "Alice" to a dear friend with a little one on the way. I have sadly realized that the straps are "petite" and I need "extra long" straps to do back carries. My lucky friend is the definition of petite, so I hope she loves Alice as much as I do. I have officially decided that I am a mei tai mama and not a wrap mama.
3 - Half-caf coffee - I rarely, if ever, consumed caffeine before I got pregnant. Now, I need it to function. Full-caf coffee makes me too jittery and sick feeling. Decaf, obviously, has no "ooomph." Half-caf gives me just the jolt I need to help me get over the fact that I sleep in 2.5 hour shifts and gave birth to a "morning" baby.
4 - Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters - Read some of my previous posts and you'll get a full picture of what this hospital means to me. In addition to the specialists working with Klaw, our pediatrician group is also a part of CHKD.
5 - Vidalia Onions - I still eat these babies raw. Sorry, folks, the Walla Walla, Mayan Sweet, or any of the numerous other "sweet" onions cannot hold a candle to the Vidalia. You haven't had a sweet onion until a Vidalia has touched your tongue.
