Is it Christmas?

You may remember the post I did of the pictures I hung in my hallway and told how I used the Latitude level I received in the Mom Select, Swag Suite. that . You can see that post HERE. Well, not long after I made the post, I got an e-mail from either the designer or owner of the company (someone that had the say so) saying that she was tickled by my post and that she was sending me the rest of the tools.

Great I thought, my very own tools and they're great quality and well made. So, I was very excited when I got my box of tools and opened it to see this:

Score! Yay for me! But, as I started examining the tools, I was struck by how brilliant the designs really are.

A screwdriver with a metal end that doubles as a hammer.. Seriously, tell me how many times you have turned your screw driver over and tried to use it as a hammer. I do it all the time. Or rather did it all the time :)

A hammer, with a rubber piece that stores in the handle that converts the hammer into a rubber mallet! Clever!

A small screw driver for small screws. You know those kind that every children's toy has? I can't tell you how many times I've fished through my kitchen drawer for the right sized screw driver from a little kit. This screw driver has 8 different heads that are stored right in the handle of the screw driver. Brilliant!

And there are many more tools that you can check out on their site by clicking HERE. They can also be found on FACEBOOK They are currently having a sale. And do you know what my husband said as I was bragging to him about my new tools? "Are you sure a man didn't design these"?.. Just like a man... No Adam Ellis, I'm pretty sure that the only kind of person that could come up with these types of designs would be one that can brush her teeth while she's breastfeeding the baby, carry an infant in one arm while she carries a child with a broken leg in the other or, one that can fix lunch at the time same time she reviews spelling words and soothes the colicky baby all while she's on the telephone helping her sister-in-law figure out what to do about her baby's rash. Yes, this brilliance no doubt has the touch of a woman..

If only these tools had existed when we were given our tool and gadget party so many years ago. That party would have so been for me. They would be the perfect addition to any bridal registry. Which by the way is possible since they are available at

Thank you Latitude tools! I will use my tools with pride!

And since the power of suggestion worked so well in this case... Now, if I can only find a way to get someone to pay my mortgage ;).
