Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

I am one of those people. I can not, absolutely can not, wear something if it is wrinkled. I'm not so bad that I iron everything-like my underwear and pajamas, but I do iron all major pieces of clothing (including jeans). So the iron is a very important tool in my house. I used to think that an iron was just an iron until I met................Rowenta. My Dad (who also has an ironing addiction) gave me a Rowenta iron one year for Christmas. It is indeed the best iron I have ever used. Rowenta irons are pricey. They range in prices from $40-$100. However, I have had my Rowenta iron for at least 5 years, and it irons just as good now as it did the first day I had it. If you are getting married, it is a great thing to add to your registry or if ironing is important to you add it to your Christmas list. Rowenta irons can easily be found on-line and in several stores. Lowes carries several varieties of Rowenta irons.

I realize that an iron isn't as exciting as some of my other favorite things, so I decided to share another favorite thing with you. Heather (co-worker, friend, and side kick) found a web-site that organizes your bookmarks on-line. The best part is that it is free!!! Visit "Delicious" to set up your account. You can access your bookmarks on any computer. I find this incredibly handy when I find a web-site that I love at work, but I want to be able to access this same web-site at home. Instead of e-mailing the web-site to myself or writing down the address, I simply save it to my Delicious account. It's easy, it's great, and it's free!

Have a wonderful Monday! I will be back soon to tell you about my fun-filled weekend!

You, my friend, are a girl after my own heart!
I LOVE my Rowenta, I have been through 2 (the first one started leaking after about 5 years). I was the only girl in the sorority house with an iron that cost as much as a pair of shoes and was proud of it!
I too, iron my jeans and t-shirts. I can't leave the house in wrinkled clothes either. I cannot wait to have a laundry room large enough to leave my ironing board and Rowenta out all the time :)

I use to be the same way about my clothes. But after last year my wardrobe changed to tank tops and jeans and I don't worry much about ironing. :)

One of my most favorite wedding gifts... deluxe rowenta iron. Lasted 5 years, through being dropped atleast 7 times... I'll miss that guy...
Good post, I'm an ironing fan also.
