I can't speak for every corner of the Midwest, but I'll take a stab at summarizing the past several months in my corner: longest winter ever, followed by the wettest and coldest spring. I don't know if official weather data confirms my summary, but I can say that with the exception of a handful of glorious days (or at least parts of days), it's been fairly miserable. I admit to medicating with some retail therapy in the form of unnecessary but not super expensive perk-me-up purchases.
written about my love of Nora Fleming products before. I couldn't resist the rain boot mini Nora Fleming came out with this rainy spring.
I was at Wal-Mart in search of a baby gate for our new puppy when I spied this giant insulated jug. So far, I have used it to keep Diet Coke chilled and it has worked like a charm (even over several hours). Actual goal is to drink more water this summer and this bottle will serve me well. It was $14.95.
