I posted a link on Facebook the other day to a post on a blog called Blissfully Domestic. The post was about the new insulated Kleen Kanteens, which I somehow hadn't known about before then. I love having a mug or cup of coffee with me in the car when I have to go somewhere on the early side of the morning, but haven't found the perfect solution. I had some pretty good travel mugs, but they never fit into my car's cup holder. I also have the Not A Paper Cup, which I love, but it's not quite large enough for morning coffee, and doesn't like to be overfilled or it drips into the cup holder. So I was thrilled to see that Kleen Kanteen is filling yet another hole in my obviously difficult life. I'll be ordering my 20oz insulated bottle from reusablebags.com this evening, and will report back with a review just as soon as it arrives.
Offer ends at midnight on 5/23.

I'm finally over the whole dough-mixing thing. I set up a shower curtain drop cloth (IKEA has pvc-free PEVA liners for $2, and amazon has them for $9 if you don't have an IKEA) and gave the kids a rainbow of dough balls, some plastic sticker molds for stamping, and a mini rolling pin. After about an hour of stamping and snake-making, the mixing commenced. Each color of dough was pulled apart into teeny little chunks and then piled together into a large colorful ball. We'll be bringing out the dough a lot more often now :)
