The Spice Dilemma Solved

Last October I wrote about my dilemma with storing spices in the kitchen. The spices were crammed into a little cabinet and I couldn't find what I needed without removing half the spices from the cabinet. Also, I have been known to purchase a spice I needed for a recipe when I actually had it, I just couldn't find it the mess. Y'all had some great suggestions. Thanks!

I finally found a solution that worked in my kitchen, the elfa storage system, from The Container Store. I wish I could say that it was a great deal but it wasn't. I definitely paid more than I planned to pay. However, it works perfect!


After- In Alphabetical Order

I like the elfa storage system because the pieces are sold separately; so you can custom design what works best for your storage needs. First I purchased the vertical rod that hangs from the top of the door to the bottom for $14.99. Next I purchased the hooks which attach the pole to the door for $9.99. Then I purchase the storage baskets that I needed. I love the different sizes available... spice rack, narrow, deep, etc... Since the spices are now on their rack I have an extra cabinet in the kitchen. Yay!

If you're looking for a good way to organize your spices or anything else, I definitely suggest The Container Store!

An Ugly Chair

Not only did I buy this ugly chair, I bought the pair. I have TWO ugly chairs! I love the shape and style and have big plans for this pair. Now I just need to find time for my new project.


Project 52~ Week 10 (a little late)

Think I have a problem? At least it's not beer.


Hello Kitty Airport Terminal

I travel almost every week for work. I'm beyond happy these days... I'll be flying more than driving! At K*dak the policy was to drive within a FIVE hour radius. Yikes, the policy was changed from a four hour radius to five hour last year. The excessive driving was so boring & I couldn't get anything done. Thank goodness for my new job! We only have to drive within a 2 hour radius. Yay!

I'll be the first to admit flying is not always glamours but after the many Friday nights I've spent in the car, I'll take it! I rather sit in the Continental President's Club with a glass of wine and play on the computer & the phone any day over driving. ;)

I was browsing the Internet and found a Hello Kitty Airport Terminal at Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) in Taiwan. HOW CUTE! I'd love to have a very long layover or delay in this airport. The terminal has a Hello Kitty playground, a Baby Kitty nursery, a rainbow theater and a Hello Kitty shop, that has special items only sold at TPE.

I wonder what men think when their flight is in or out of this terminal, especially men flying on business that have no idea there is a Hello Kitty airport terminal. I bet they're thinking, "Get me out of here," or "All this pink is giving me a headache," or "I love my job, I love my job, I love my job."



Last weekends my friend Maria and her son Austin came to San Antonio for visit. It was great to see Maria. She is like a big sister to me and now that I live in SAT, I don't see her as much. Friday night we had Mexican food & made chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate covered marshmallows.

Saturday we slept in, it was great! We had a late breakfast and took a walk in the park. The weather was perfect! Saturday night we went to the Riverwalk for dinner and a boat ride. I haven't been taking as many photos as I usually do, I'm just not feeling it these days. However, Maria and I did try to have Austin, a 1st grader, take our photo. Here's the results....

1st try, very blurry. We instructed him to keep the camera very still.

2nd try, even worse

3rd try, not getting better

4th try, a little better
