You guys, I'm addicted to jars. I think it may be a side-effect from months of jar collecting for my wedding, but it could also be Pinterest's fault. Husband doesn't understand why I have a whole cupboard reserved for the keeping of empty jars and bottles, but I just can't get rid of them. The other day we had a funny (in my opinion) conversation about it and it all started with these:
Salt and pepper re-fillers...from Bed Bath and Beyond. Matthew brought these home and I was more excited about the shape of the dang cute jars than the fact that we had salt again. Usually he's pretty tolerant but this day he said:
Husband: Wait, you aren't really saving those jars when they're empty, are you?
Wife: Of course I am! Look at how cute they are with the corks!
Husband: You mean to tell me you have all those jars already and you need more??
Wife: Yes. If I ever want to do a project with them, I save money by already having the jars on hand.
Husband: Um, what project?
Wife: I could give them away as little gifts...candies, sugar scrubs - (This is where I got cut off)
Husband: That's what I want.
Husband: I want a sugar scrub. For Valentines Day.
Wife: Haaaha do you even know what a sugar scrub is?
Husband: Doesn't matter. That's what I want.
I'm pretty sure he just wants to see if I'll actually use one of those jars. What he doesn't know is, with Pinterest, I literally COULD think of a jillion things to put in there! The question is: Do I actually make him a sugar scrub (which I know I'll just end up using) or do I put something HE might actually use? Let's review the options...
Of course, once I dazzle him with a gift, he will completely understand and we will be in agreement that the jars are necessary ;)
