Day 12: #ouch or "I heart Mason Jars!"

First things first, if it is at all possible, my sunburn is even redder today. 

And, it hurts. Even the smallest touch is like a million pin pricks. #goodtimes

It feels worse than it looks. ;)

In happier news, my love for Mason Jars has deepened. 

They're not just for cute drinking glasses anymore. ;)

I was first turned on to the miracle that is Mason Jars by my friend Danielle and have spent the past couple of weeks using them in various ways and acquiring every shape and size imaginable. 

First, I started using them to make sure I got enough water to drink each day. 

I don't think I've ever been this well-hydrated in all my life.

Staying Hydrated!

Then, I started experimenting with using them in my weekly meal prep. I stored salad in them and chopped fruits and veggies. Danielle swore they would last for days and days. I admit, I was skeptical. But, I'm here to tell you that it really, really works!

Mason jar food prep!

I bought some strawberries almost a week ago and they are still fresh in their jar. I don't know about you, but sometimes my strawberries barely make it a day or two in their plastic container without getting all bruised and moldy. But, in the mason jar, 5 days later, they are still as fresh as the day I bought them.

Carrots, peppers, and salads have also fared equally well.

This week, I'm trying other berries and radishes and chicken taco filling. #yum

SO, if you're tired of throwing food away, get thee to the store and buy some Mason Jars, post haste. You won't regret it!

I just love them! They make me so happy...and save me money...and help me make sure I have good, real food on hand so I am less tempted to use the drive-thru...and they are just so stinkin' cute! The only thing that could make me love them more was if they were red...or cured sunburns. ;)
