I may be kinda ridiculous, but I’m really excited that we inherited this high chair. Not only is it awesome because it’s getting reused, it’s awesome because it takes up so little space and it completely easy to transport. . . I’m really more excited about this than I should be. I used it when I took care of my friend’s child (the friend that gave it to us) and I was so stinking impressed with it that I think I raved about it for a couple weeks. There are just somethings that I get a little too excited about, like pretty bundt pans (thanks mom for getting me a pretty bundt pan for Christmas, I need to make a cake soon!) and this highchair happens to be one of them. 🙂
So yesterday morning, my hair dryer blew up in my hand while I was drying my hair. Sparks, loud pop, more sparks, scream, loud pop. Toss the hair dryer into the sink and back away. Thankfully my hair was still wet otherwise I think I might be sporting a new hairstyle (mainly, burnt). Now typically, I would race out and buy a new hair dryer because how else are you supposed to get ready for work! Well, I’m going to try life without a hair dryer for a little while. I know that the hair dryer is one of those items that sap quite a bit of extra electricity and really it might not even be necessary. Jason’s completely on board with this idea, because when I don’t blow dry my hair, it gets a little wavy, which he likes. So this next week should be an interesting week. People got along for a long time without hair dryers, I’m pretty sure I can too. I think. I know this wouldn’t work in some areas of the country in the middle of winter, but it’s going to be 85 today. Right. Crazy Texas weather.
And then, since we’re going with three completely unrelated topics, I was going to see if any of you Austinites would be interested in going in on a cow with me. That’s right. A cow. Alexander Farms is about to offer up some premium beef in half cow and quarter cow increments. Their beef is grass feed, free range, no hormones or antibiotics and completely local. It comes down to around $4 a pound for all cuts of meat (various steaks, ground beef, stew meat, roasts, etc). I would like to get either 4 people (for a quarter cow) or 8 people (for a half cow, it’s a bit cheaper this way) in on this deal. The meat wouldn’t be ready for another month but the order has to be put in by next week. The cost would be around $130-150 and the meat would come wrapped in freezer paper. Anyone interested?
