I have the best co-workers.

Mike and I have been babysitting for a co-worker/friend of mine for about a year now. I've known her for about 9 years now, since I've been working at the School District since I was 14. She and I work together in the business office. She has 2 boys...Colin is 1 and Brian is 3. We always have so much fun babysitting for them. Her and her husband are great. She was the first person to get me an engagement gift. I love it, and use it all the time. She is always there for me...when I need to vent about certain things. She is just a genuinely great friend.
Friday night we babysat for them and when they got home we were talking about the wedding..and she knew I was trying to keep things old fashion (or vintage) and I mentioned something about mason jars. She took me into her basement and showed me her 10-15 boxes of mason jars!!!! She has offered to let me use them for our wedding! They are original ANTIQUE mason jars. These things are on EBay for $36 a piece! I am ever so grateful! She says they are just cluttering up her basement. But when I told her how much they were worth...she said she would like them back! LOL!

She has all different sizes and colors. She gave me 3 to I can play with them. Check them out!!! They are in mint condition.

This one is my favorite.

Not sure what I am going to do with them yet. But I have lots of ideas. I don't want to share too much with you....I want to keep it a surprise! But you will definitely see these beauties at our wedding!
