New Purchases

This is my new bread box for my kitchen! I found it on ebay and I am absolutely in love with it. I might try and refinish it and get a new sticker to put on it. Their are a couple of nicks and scrapes but overall I love it and maybe I'll pick my new colors for the kitchen off of this box! Now before you think..ew um gross you're going to put you're bread in it. I plan on keeping wrapped bread in it and of course I'll give it a through Lysol spray inside, but I think it's going to look darling on my little counter!Next, eBay item up is two anthropologie kitsch 'n' glam aprons! They are aprons designed to fit like a retro dress, but obviously made out of good kitcheny material! I love these fun aprons. Normally they are $38.99 on anthropologie.com, but i was able to snag two aprons for $48.00 with shipping on eBay! and they are nwt( i really hope that means new with tag)

So hopefully, these will be what i ordered and I can go to town in my kitchen with all my new aprons!

Last night, I was going to attempt to make Thai Curry, but after going to the dog park I decided that I would much rather go to El Torito. So off we went and split a pitcher of blackberry margaritas. I asked how many the pitcher held and he said, oh about 4...Well i think he meant about 4 each. So a very buzzed Raechel drove home. It was quite silly, I live um...3 blocks for El torito, but I just hopped in the car without even thinking about it.

OH welll.

What else is new in Raechel land. I have gotten back to ballet. I know go on Wednesday right around lunch. I really love it. I do have a new teacher and she is good, but she isn't quite like my old teacher. Alicia ( the new teacher) is a prego, so its harder for her to teach and she can't show us jumps or anything, which sucks a little but she's really nice and I feel like I am getting a good ballet education from her. Jack built me a bar this weekend so I can practice when I am at home. I really want to learn how to be en pointe. That is a goal. If I had stuck with ballet when I was 5 I would be en pointe now, but alas, I was a foolish girl and wanted to play basketball (!?!?!??!??!?) (ok, don't judge. everyone else in my class was!) Maybe next time I am home I will put up pictures of me in my basketball regalia..It is quite amusing. Just as an FYI. Mother's should not be allowed to dress their children. I had to wear black socks with black tennis shoes because that was the color on out jerseys..oy vay..

This is going to be a super long post, but I feel that it is very worth you're reading because of all of the amazing things that have been going on.......or I just really wanted to share about my latest and greatest eBay purchases!

ok, well my bit of wisdom is "grease after the peace " ( i guess its a surfing mantra)

Oh I adore your new bread box and am very jealous! I have a very ugly 70's green one that has the front lid in plastic wood with fruit "carved" into it. I would like to spray paint the lid so it's not as ugly in it's brown wood tone. I do like it don't take me wrong but your's is much cuter.
The aprons are also adorable. I purchased fabric to sew some cool ones like Anthro's but haven't gotten around to it like so many other things.
p.s. I want to see a picture of you practicing ballet at your new bar that John made with your leg warmers on.
