New Addition to My Diaper Bag


Check out my new pewter flask. I scored this little gem at my ladies club "Holiday Party" last night. It was a White Elephant Chinese Auction. We all brought something in that we had previously received as a gift but didn't want. The idea is that you make it all pretty with the wrapping paper and bows--sorta like polishing a turd. I had my eye on this the whole time. Had Mischa not "stolen" the indoor/outdoor christmas tree lights that I had gotten, I never would have been able to steal this from Molly. Who had stolen it from Amber. I wanted to steal it from Amber, but I felt bad because she seemed to like it. Molly claimed she needed it because she has three kids. Sorry Charlie. It's all mine now.

And to think that someone got used stove burner covers. With BURNS ON THEM! I'd say I got the best gift there.



The best part is this:

The Barbie-sized funnel.


This flask is going to take my playgroups to a whole new level. Whatever will I put in it for Baby Girl's art class on Monday morning?

Decisions, decisions...

Now all you need are the tiny liquor bottles you get on the airiplane and you're set to go!

Next? Tiny little barf bags for when you've had a wee dram too many!

I am unclear about why that would be a gift someone would NOT want to keep. I mean, come on, IT'S A FLASK, PEOPLE! It holds booze! And fits discreetly in your bag! For all those times that your coffee needs to be Irish. Which for me would be every day.

Oh god I think I need help . . .

I'm seriously laughing so hard that I can barely type! I snorted when I read it's "sorta like polishing a turd"! Oh my God, that's funny! You know, for the next white elephant gift event I have to go to, I just might take a polished turd!......... I'm still laughing!!
