I am missing silverware. I have no idea where it has gone, but I am missing almost all of my forks and spoons. Not my knives, though, which is kind of weird, because if I was going to stash some silverware under my bed (or where ever my kids have put it) I would make sure it's a knife or two so I could fend off intruders. Not that there are many intruders in my bedroom, but you know what I'm saying.
I went to the store to buy some new stuff, and I couldn't believe how expensive flatware is. You used to be able to get four forks (or spoons or knives) for about a dollar, but I can't find those anymore. I did find some oneida flatware discounts online, but if I am going to spend any amount of money on flatware, I need to make sure it doesn't disappear. Short of not allowing my kids to use any of it, I don't know how to keep track of it all. Any ideas?
While I was shopping for flatware, it occurred to me that I could use an update on other things in my house as well. I found some cute dining cushions, but honestly, that look is a little too country for me. My mom would love them, though. In fact, I remember cushions on our dining chairs growing up.
I also found this awesome ice bucket with stand and I want it so bad! As soon as I saw it, I pictured it next to my bed, chilling a bottle of champagne on New Year's Eve. Sure, I am going to be with my kids New Year's Eve, so I won't be using it that night. But, the following week, I will have a special friend over, and it's never too late to toast in the new year, right?
