Things I Couldn't Live Without-- Part Two

There is one question I get asked every time I go out in public with the kids. Every time. Today only two people asked me and another person emailed me- it was a light day.

It's not any of the questions you would think- How old are the kids? How far apart are they? What are their names? Did you plan them that close??? (Although I do get all of these questions a lot.) Nope. It's not any of the common questions.

Here is the magic question that I think even Clay could answer at this point--Where did you get that car seat cover? (Funny, huh?)

Since the kids are so close in age I didn't want to buy a whole new car seat but I also didn't want my little pink precious to sit in her brother's black and silver seat. So, I started researching online and found the one I loved. (And let me just tell you that some of the covers I saw were more expensive than just buying a whole new seat!)

Anyway, this cover was reasonable, adorable and pink- so it met all my requirements. Here's the car seat Clay-style:

And Carolina-style:

What a difference a cover makes! So, if you're in the market for a car seat cover (or know someone who is) I would highly recommend this one. I wish I got some kind of kickback from the company every time I dropped their name but the cover really is cute, easy to throw in the washer (hood cover and all) and just plain fun!

I always laugh because when people approach you with your kids you expect them to ask you something about your kids- not your car seat! Oh well, it's kind of funny having strangers ask us about it but I'm always happy to share a good buy! (Mike thinks they should send us some business cards so we don't have to repeat ourselves all the time and wait for people to dig for a pen and paper to write it all down- I'm considering it.)

And that's the story of my most FAQ. So funny.

*I know this is the "Things I Couldn't Live Without" post (and I could live without a car seat cover) but the whole point is telling people about my favorite things (and this cover counts!). *

Interesting what people will notice. You would think with such adorable children right there they wouldn't want to look at anything else! Guess that's just Nana talking.
