HRH will start school this fall. Needless to say, I am very excited at the prospect of wearing uniforms to school. I can't wait to get all her sweet little collars mongrammed. And bloomers. And socks.
I started yesterdady on my search for a suitable lunch box. First instinct was Pottery Barn, but I decided to do a little reasearch first.
GoodHousekeeping released a study in 2009 on lunch box effectiveness. Out of 43 lunch boxes tested, guess how many kept the lunch under the standard safety temp of 40 WITH a cool pack for the minimum two hours? None. Not one. Zip, zilch, nada. Scary, right?
So I started digging a little more - the survey was from 2009, so surely there was a lunch box out there that met the safety requirements. And I found one.
LLBean has this lunch box for a whopping $14.95 and it comes in LOTS of colors. It passed the cooling requirements for FIVE hours. With monogramming AND shipping - $20. Glad I did my research before spending too much money on a crap lunch box. (We chose pink with a grey butterfly)
SO - now I have the lunch box. But how do I fill it? A quick trip to amazon solved that as well.
I hate how amazon has the "customers who bought this, also bought this" section. Because of this, I also bought these egg shapers - cause HRH will chow down on some hard boiled eggs.
Now we are ready. (Except for the nap mat, uniforms, bows, backpack.... SCHOOL IS FUN!)
