Thank you notes

Dear Nutrisystem,

Thank you for giving me the ability to dry my jeans again. I haven't felt free to dry my blue jeans in years because you know, they shrink a little when you dry them. I just pulled a pair out of the dryer and put them on and they fit. Like not-too-tight fit. It's a miracle.

Thank you for allowing me these six almonds as part of my morning snack. I also got to eat these beauties that were cooking on my stove a mere twenty minutes ago.
Cinnamon apples. They made the whole house smell good and I'm actually full after eating them. I feel a little like SouleMama making them this way but I'm sure she would take the peel off first with a special little gadget she has. I don't have one of those. Maybe since I'm making Joy's baby food I can ask for one for Christmas and people won't laugh at me for wanting it.

Dear Target,

Thank you for giving us a glimpse into the world of tights. I started with you, Target, because of the price tag on these tights. You can't beat $2.99 to add a little diva to your day. As I was wrangling Charlie to put them on her she looked down, smiled, and said, "Cute!" I think I gotta start watching what I say to her or she's gonna really turn into a diva. See her little denim skirt? I found that when she was about two weeks old at Old Navy for $4.99. I knew she'd wear it one day and sho'nuff the day has arrived.

Dear Lansinoh,

Thank you for your fabulous nursing pads. Even after weaning Joy I find them useful for when I need a coaster handy. I have them stashed all over my house and inevitably when I have a drink and need to put it down I just open the nearest drawer and there they are! I plowed through about 59 boxes of your nursing pads over the last three years and now I'll never buy a box again. It was a good run and I'm not kidding about using them for coasters. Not when people are coming over of course. I will surely be sad the day I run out.

Okay thank you and the end.

You crack me up! Thanks for the useful coasters tip. I have so many boxes of those things it's nice to know they can serve me in more than one way. Way to go on the jeans things!!! And Charlie is the cutest thing ever with that big smile and adorable curls. I could eat her up.

Oh the Lansinoh brand are my favorite! You can't see them under most shirts! I bought the gerber brand at first and I may as well carried a bullhorn with me and announced to everyone "Hello! I am lactating!"

You are too funny!

Funny! Charie looks so cute in her leggings! :) I gave all my nursing pads to my sister...never needing to use one!
