New Pans!

Baby Drew and I were hanging out this afternoon when we heard a knock at the door. I opened the door to see the friendly UPS man leaving this package on the porch. My new pans!

My current pans are probably a health hazard. We got them for our wedding 4 1/2 years ago and the non-stick coating is starting to chip and scratch. Probably not the safest thing ever.

So I clipped some 20% off coupons and headed to Bed Bath & Beyond where the friendliest sales associate, Eddie, educated me in the exciting features of stainless steel cookware. (Did you know that pans have "cores"? Me neither.) After agonizing over the decision, I decided on the two I wanted. Much to my chagrin, they weren't in stock. But don't worry, the ever-helpful Eddie ordered them online for me (and waived the shipping fee!). And today they arrived!

Opening the box.......

Don't they look pretty on the stove?

Here are the old pans in the garbage. Goodbye, Old Pans. You've served me well, but it's time to move on. New Pans, I think we're going to be friends.

Dear Blog,

I was on a walk with my dear friend and our babies today. We were talking about the blogs we read and she encouraged me to start one. I definitely don't think I'm hip enough to have a blog, but whatever.
This whole blogging thing is a bit odd. I kind of feel like I'm writing in a diary when I blog. (Aside from the fact that a blog doesn't have an itty bitty padlock and unicorns on the front, a blog and a diary are quite similar.) This blog is about my forays into wifedom and motherhood and my closet desire to be Martha Stewart, minus the jail part. So here it is.....
