I had a little time and decided to go to my favorite place in the world, Arches National Park in Moab, UT! On the way there however, I stopped in Las Vegas to get some zzzz. I wasn't quite ready for bed at 6 pm, so I checked out the strip. While dodging drunks and brothel promotions, I ran into the mall maze at Planet Hollywood. There I found an entire Tervis store. I know Tervis makes Made in USA coffee thermoses, but I had no idea they had their own stores. Also, I had no idea they make adorable, easy to clean and sturdy water bottles. Needless to say, I thought my life could be improved by frequent hydration and delightful whale decals, so $27 later, I was the proud owner of my nice new water bottle! Very happy with it so far!
A lot of people my age are having babies these days. As I browse baby registries, I'm feel forced to buy utilitarian gifts like breast-milk storage bottles because none of the baby clothes are American-made. Truly, these sterile, functional gifts do not speak to my soul. I don't even know how useful they are.
Actually, for my last shower gift, I bought an adorable PB&J twins onesies set from Etsy, but it turned out they onesies were imported, but embroidered in Portland. I felt duped!
Alas, I've decided that it might be worthy to lookout for some Made in USA baby clothes that don't cost $1,000,000. From a quick Google search, here's my finds!
First, the not-so-useful!
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
