But I can totally justify it. All day long, if necessary.
You want to see? I'm so glad you asked. It's imperative that I have (because they're for ME, naturally) more fitteds in the stash because I'm using wool soakers and longies on a regular basis, and my plain old boring
still totally useful prefolds aren't always the best choice for using with wool because if the Snappi is not on just so, then the diaper slips and unfolds, where UNFOLDS = POOPSPLOSION, and mama don't love no poopsplosion.
Twitter has done this to me. I could list specific people who are VERY BAD INFLUENCES to me, but I'm no narc. The week of Thanksgiving, I kept hearing talk of the GINORMOUS Black Friday sales going on. And I fell for it. Black Friday sucked me in.
I hit RG Natural Babies. And I hit hard. (Well, for me, anyway.)
I bought three kinds of Rockin' Green: Cherry Almond, Lavendar Vanilla, and Mango Sorbet. I bought Snappi Diaper Fasteners (this was an actual need). I bought triangular crayons for HB's stocking. It's possible I even purchased two DryBee's Gone Natural fitteds. And a DryBees Fleece Night Time diaper with a Knickernappies SuperDo Insert.
Like this, but black.
To go with the skull and crossbones babylegs.
And I had my stuff by Tuesday. That there is some fast shipping.
I was surprised by the scent of grape wafting from my package (how many times have you heard that one?), and discovered that instead of sending me a lavender vanilla scented Rockin' Green Soap, Michelle sent Grape Soda.
I sent her an email to let her know I'd received the wrong item, and she responded quickly, asking me to please wait while she sorted things out. And because I'm awesome like that, I was, well, awesome like that.
Something happened that I did not expect at all. Michelle emailed me that she was shipping me the Lavendar Vanilla Rockin' Green Soap, and that I should just keep the Grape Soda flavour, and Merry Christmas to me!
So here's what I'm doing, because I want to spread the awesomesauce around:
I'm giving away the Grape Soda Rockin' Green Soap that Michelle gave me. And Michelle is giving you all a coupon for 5% off your next purchase at RG Natural Babies! Just type CHRISTMAS in the coupon place during checkout.
