I've been bugged by Jenn and others to write posts on the blog for a long time, but I didn't want to have to figure out what to write about while staying somewhat on topic. So the obvious solution was to write about random things in the warehouse. Warehouse Roulette! To make it fun and very random, I put all of the warehouse locations in a box, mixed it up and drew a location. Then we had a long weekend.
This week’s blog post is going to be short and sweet (which may be a relief to some after my epic journey last week) because my innards can’t decide what they are going to do. I think the turkey on my sandwich was teetering on the edge of the cliff of intestinal doom. I’m not sure what’s worse - having your innards melt and getting it over with, or the queasiness and the uncertainty of what, if anything is going to happen. Someone suggested White Castle on the way out the door. Yarf!
So, with that in mind, and a bucket at the ready, this week’s draw was the Aden + Anais Nibble muslin snap bibs. If you’ve ever used or felt an Aden + Anais muslin blanket, you know how soft and yummy they are. Their bibs are made from the same material and prints, but cut into the shape of a bib, bound around the edges and have three snaps to get a good fit. There are three in a package, and if you’re lucky, you get a peanut shell with three peanuts in it. I love those. It’s like nature’s bonus check. Is it gross to eat the shell of a peanut? I like to eat them because that’s where all the salt is, but then I actually looked at the shell and noticed how much dirt was still on the shell. Hmmm.. gross. Then I ate another shell because it's so tasty. It’s a good things worms aren’t tasty. I have a hard enough time getting spaghetti to cooperate.
The bibs are nicely made and should be comfy to wear. The attention to detail is noticeable. The snaps are backed with a woven cotton material, so they won’t pull through the muslin fabric. The top of the snap is under the top layer of muslin so they can’t been seen and they are nice and small so the bib is easy to remove from the squirming messy monkey.
How well does it perform? I didn’t take them out of the packaging to find out. I could take a nap and drool on them, but that might be hard to explain to the returns department. The only pitfall I see with these bibs is that they are not backed with a waterproof barrier. If lil’ Spanky spills grape juice, it will soak through and end up on his clothes. Muslin is pretty absorbent, so it might be ok for chunky/thicker messes, but you should still change the bib after lil’ Spanky decorates himself with Spaghetti.
There aren’t any amusing warnings, except for the reminder to not iron the bib, which is a good thing because I get carried away and want to iron everything, especially the squirrels. The squirrels found our bird feeder again. Stinkin’ squirrels.
And I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the location card again. Whoops.
Who wants pie?
