That Lovely #3: Sleep Mask

February 11, 2009 By: Jenna Category: lovely, Uncategorized

Do you own a sleep mask? If the answer is no, I would ask you to reconsider the way you are living your life thus far. I think between That Husband and myself we own at least 5. We each keep one under our pillow at home, I always have on with me when I travel… you get the idea.

This particular mask was purchased right before I went to Rome with That Mother. As soon as TH tried it out for himself he made me trade him! IMG_5434

It’s something about the silky material, and the sweet little eye pockets that help block out the light.

What do you use to help you sleep better at night?

That Lovely #2: MCUSTA Chef’s Knife

January 21, 2009 By: Jenna Category: lovely

“My parents want to give us something off of the registry for the wedding.”

A wedding registry gives a couple the chance to create a dream wish list. What does it mean when your Polish relatives want to get you something you haven’t already asked for?

This was before I knew about my FIL’s completely awesome knive/sword collection, and so I still didn’t quite understand what I was getting when I opened it the week before the wedding.

This knife, is my best friend in the kitchen. When I dice, it sings. When I slice, it purrs. Sometimes we disagree and my finger ends up red, but I know that I’m always in the wrong in these situations and I never swear in anger at my little friend. Mcusta is allergic to the dishwasher so I lovingly wash her by hand each day. It’s a love affair of epic proportions.

I assure you, this knife is as amazing as the photo I took of it.

I love this knife so much I keep it in the original wood box it came in. I left the purple ribbon tied around it for the first few weeks, but I later realized that was an exercise in ridiculousness.

If you are still using the Wal-mart knife set you got in college, you are past due for an upgrade.

Oh, and if you speak Japanese, I would love to know how to say her name.

      I'm a farm-raised almost-crunchy stroller-pushing picture-taking lifestyle-blog-writing gastronomy-obsessed divine-seeking thrift-store-combing cheese-inhaling pavement-pounding laughter-sprinkling lover of individuality and taking chances.
