So I missed a day. . . don't act too surprised.

I know, I know. . .I failed miserably yesterday. . . I didn't get the post up. In my defense, it was St. Patty's day and just because I'm pregnant, doesn't mean I can't indulge in a fun holiday tradition with an O'Doul's and some water?! heh?

Well, I will make this post extra special and extra photoy. I know . . not a word. . but you get what I mean.
I have a bunch of random pics that I have taken of cool things I wanna share with you. First off, these bad ass old postoffice boxes I got off Craigslist. For those of you that don't know me, my husband recently got me addicted to Craigslist. I find all kinds of amazing stuff on there for me and for friends. Wonder if people would pay me to do it? It's so f'n addicting!

Back to these postoffice boxes. Pretty sweet huh? The lady I purchased them from got them a few years ago at the Nashville Flea Market. Each of them have their own combination and the back is completely open.
I initially wanted to use this as a decorative piece in the baby's room but seeing as how the furniture and theme are changing constantly, this is going to go somewhere else in the house with some fake tea lights, small picture frames and maybe a cool vine plant. :)
While we are on the topic of Craigslist. . .I have to show you the dining room table and chairs I found and purchased for $450 when in reality. . .brand new . . .it was worth over $3000!! I would say it is still worth more than $450 but I know how to bargain. :) It is Calligaris from Italy. Ohh la la . . .HA!
Next. . .the really cool new ketchup package design by Heinz for Chick-fil-A. If you are like me and no longer live near a Chick-fil-A. . .and trust me, I miss it dearly. . .then you might be missing out on this really cool new packaging!

Not only does it give you 3 packets worth the ketchup in 1 but you have the option to dip or squeeze!

A few things I've learned with my first experience of this new packaging:

1. I like to eat my fries as soon as I get them, so the squeeze feature seems to be my best choice while driving. (I did do a little dipping, and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.)

2. Two problems with the squeeze option: to tear that plastic open is kind of a pain in the ass and when you squeeze, you aren't able to get all of the ketchup out because of the way the plastic bends.

3. Finally, MOST IMPORTANTLY, if you order a large fry, ask for at least 4 total packets. . .2 STILL DOESN'T CUT IT.

I thought I might save this for the next post. . .it's gonna be all about decorating the baby's room . . .well, everything I found but can't afford. . .lol. But seeing as how we aren't doing a physics theme anymore. . .I'll share.

Link I love the color palette and textures. . .also the symbols for each scientist/physicist are pretty sweet! They are a tad on the expensive side for the larger prints, but TOTALLY worth it!

Everyone have a great weekend and I'll be back . . .possibly Sunday.

I leave you with one of the most hilarious freakin' videos I've watched in a long time, courteous of my good friend Kayce over at 3rd Bird. Check out her blog!
