With a new house comes new stuff, even when we’re trying to avoid buying stuff. I mean, we’ve been buying (and receiving) PLENTY of baby stuff, but most of that is kind of necessary. But then we bought a new stove because the existing one was a fire hazard (our new one is so pretty!), and then – THEN – I may have gone a little overboard.
I knew I didn’t need it. I almost bought one months ago, but talked myself out of it. Too frivolous. I’ve lived without it for 39 years – I can live without it now.
Except, apparently, I can’t. There’s a coffee shop nearby that makes a chai latte that is the closest I’ve tasted to the BEST one I’ve ever had (from Shoe’s Cup and Cork in Leesburg). They specialize in coffee, not chai, so I asked them what mix they use for the chai and promptly ordered it. But that’s not all. Boiling water into a powdered chai mix doesn’t recreate the latte experience.
I ordered a milk frother.
I KNOW. I’ve become one of THEM. It makes my chai so good and frothy! I’ve gone off the deep end.
But that’s not all. You know what came yesterday? THIS!
I can hardly contain my glee, I love it so much. What’s next? Well, I’m eyeing these super-cute rocket and robot nightlights from Uncommon Goods for the baby’s room, but NO. THIS HAS TO STOP. They’re expensive and fall exactly in the category of things a baby doesn’t need (certainly not for that much money), especially when my salary is about to be cut in half, and we’ve been trying so hard not to accumulate things after three years of living light and damn it, I’m not going to ruin our streak because of night lights!
But seriously, how cute are these?
