Sweet Corn and Burp Cloths

Today's "feel better" attempts so far: lip gloss, new pens to try (I got the Uniball kind this time), three chocolate-chip muffins, unloading some of the posts building up on the baby names blog, putting a cat on my lap while I sit at the computer, ordering new jeans for me and a couple of clearance dresses for Elizabeth who is on a dress kick.

Score! Land's End dress for only $6.99!

Another Land's End dress, for fall, $9.99!

My sister-in-law sent me a care package, and do you know what is TOTALLY DELICIOUS and I'd never have thought it would be? Dried sweet corn! OMG. It is so tasty. This is the kind she sent me: Sensible Foods Organic Crunch Sweet Corn. I saw it and thought, "Oh, how...INTERESTING to try!" And before I knew it I'd eaten the whole bag (except what I shared with the kids, who also liked it) and was going online to find MORE MORE MORE.

I bought some of Parking at Home's Best Burp Cloths in the World, and I'm excited to see what my friend with a baby thinks of them. I'll do a post on the review blog when she gets back to me. They look GREAT: really cute, and nice and huge, and it was so fun to choose the colors I feel like placing another order just to choose again. I got a navy polkadot with white terry, and a red polkadot with green terry, but I was choosing for my friend's tastes so now I want to re-order for myself! But no one around here is barfing on my shoulder anymore.

I was always interested in finding cute burb cloths but I, too, no longer have anyone barfing on my shoulder. Cute, though! Hope you're feeling much better.

that corn does sound.... interesting. like, am having a hard time convincing myself to spend money on it interesting :-) but i always trust the things you like! and it sounds healthier than girl scout cookies, OMG WHY DO I STILL HAVE THOSE AROUND.

My daughter has both of those dresses (the first one in magenta/navy) and loves them. Land's End clothes are awesome when they go on clearance!


I think I'm going to have to look for the corn now too...

Now *that* looks cool. The napkins arrived, BTW. Thanks sooo much. We used them on Family Night. Everybody got a different color...
