i got picked!

Have you ever heard of the site House Party? I’ve been aware of it for quite a while and I’ve applied to host several parties, but was never picked. Until now. And, oh did I get chosen to host a great party (that, ironically I forgot I applied for). On December 5th I’ll be hosting a Rowenta iron & steamer party. And yes, the most amazing part of the whole thing is that I am actually getting a Rowenta iron & steamer sent to me. Talk about a fantastic early Christmas gift! The party premise is a clothing swap, but I’m not sure if I’ll go with that or do something slightly different. I might just ask people to bring a piece of clothing that would be a challenge — corduroy pants, tuxedo shirts, pashmina shawls, etc.

Currently I use an iron that belonged to either me or Drew in college and cost all of $10. Don’t get me wrong, it works fine but it will be so nice to have a good iron, especially for my sewing projects. I must sound crazy, getting all excited over this. But the truth is I do love to iron. There is something very soothing about smoothing out wrinkles. Love. It. I guess if I had to iron my husband’s shirts every day for work it might be a different story, but since I don’t have to do that, I can just be happy with what I do need to iron 🙂

Anyway, I just had to share my excitement!

  1. Congrats! I personally hate to iron unless it’s a square, like a tablecloth. 🙂 Is this the same site that I signed up for, where I won the French party?
