Maybe you'll forgive me for my long silence when you hear we've been moving into a new house.
My new favorite things?
A double oven.
And a dishwasher.
Mozely's favorite thing is pulling the towels off the handles. Funnest. Game. Ever.
How I lived this long without a dishwasher, I'll never know. I mean, I know plenty of people throughout the history of time have lived without a dishwasher, but now that my husband and I won't have to be passive aggressive about who should be doing the dishes next, my life is way better.
My entire existence has been so difficult lately that I'm ready for some relief. Between remodeling, babysitting, working, being sick 3 times, and everything else, I'd say that I wouldn't immediately recommend packing up all of your crap on top of that. And my, what a lot of crap one has when you start actually examining how many boxes it takes up.
These pictures do not do them justice. I received them and packed them right before we moved, and then couldn't find them. I couldn't find the lens I like (packed away), and then I couldn't edit the pictures in photoshop (desktop packed away). Uh, did I mention we moved in 2 weeks ago and I still haven't even started unpacking anything except the kitchen?
Anyway, I love these towels. They are huge, which is so important for kitchen towels, plus they are cotton and they absorb liquid so well. And they are crazy cute. Shar draws these herself and has them printed. I'm afraid to use them too much because all of my towels are nasty stained, but she promises that they wash so easily even if you do wipe up chocolate off of kids faces or try to clean your oven. Ok, so maybe don't clean your oven with it. She is so reliable and does things right when she says she will so if you want to order some of these from her she will send them to you. If you are in Hawaii or coming to Hawaii she will be selling at the upcoming craft fairs:
Aliiolani Elementary, Saturday Dec. 3rd
Okinawan Center at Waipio, Dec. 7th
Moanalua High School, Dec. 10th
Her too-cute towels were recently featured in the Advertiser as one of the "Things We Love" feature they run on Fridays. I couldn't agree more.
I'll be back to posting regularly and I'm excited to be re-energized with writing and blogging because
Seriously, it is like all kinds of Christmas around here. This is so much more exciting to me than Santa. I told my husband I don't even need any Christmas presents.
(except a kindle. because we have way too many freaking books. I know you agree with me. just give in already. maybe we need 2. oh, and then, naturally, we'll need to buy some ebooks.)
If you are still wanting to sign up, we have limited spots available, plus we made a few changes and were able to drop the price to $75. I'm also excited about the group that is coming. I think the socializing at lunch might be my favorite part.
Come back around on Tuesday. I've got a Lilikoi Bar recipe for you.
Just to keep up our Christmas cheer.
