Stuff that’s so awesome it hurts, Vol. 27


This week is a good mix of weird and wonderful things.  Enjoy.

1. Apollo 11 Spacesuit Replica. Um, this is awesome. Have you ever wanted to own your own spacesuit? Now’s your chance! You may be thinking, “But Jenn, what would I do with a spacesuit?” My answer to you is, “What wouldn’t you do with a spacesuit?” Check and mate, my friend.

2. Lucien Albrecht Cremant D’alsace Brut Rose. This is one of my absolute most favorite wines.  I’m no wine expert, but I do enjoy sparkling wines a lot (a whole lot). And this one is one of the best sparkling wines I’ve ever had. Best of all, it’s around $20 a bottle!

3. Brian Reyes Asymmetrical Pleated Dress. So I don’t need a $1300 dress I couldn’t even wear until spring, but this dress is so beautiful.  I’m surprised at how much I like this color, but it works.

4. Chipotle Tequila Chocolate Truffles. Yeah, that’s right – chocolate and chipotle and tequila. That’s a tasty combination. Fat Turkey Chocolate is made in Austin and I’ve heard great things.  I’m going to try this particular flavor right away.

5. Biggy Mermaid Scarf by BossyBoots Design. I really want a long, skinny, colorful scarf this winter and I haven’t found the perfect one yet. Until now. I love this scarf! The blues and greens are very pretty and this is one very, very long scarf.

That’s all for this week. See you next time!

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    This summer dunirg our outdoor Family Storytime, I used props a couple of times. For Judy Sierra’s The Sleepy Little Alphabet I passed out magnetic alphabet letters(the frig kind) to each child ahead of the book. They were asked to listen for their letter and bring it forward to place on the magnetic board while I read the story. I also used the Ellison machine to make flannel pieces all using different colors, asking them to watch for their color while I read another book-which I can’t recall right now. Sometimes it gets the not quite so interesting books but great books a boost in your story times.
