Same thing here.

I know my dad got cigar boxes and used for lots of stuff to store things in. I know my dad mentioned many years back that he got empty cigar boxes and wanted to use them for storing stuff even back when he still was a smoker. My dad was a cigarette smoker when he was a smoker before he quit in his 30s.. I'm sure most or all boxes my dad got were given to him empty since the only time he had cigars was to pass them out when my younger brother and I were born.

I remembered my dad had my younger brother and I store baseball cards in Cigar box. My parents even stored office supplies around the house in Cigar boxes including markers. When my mom was doing her one craft fair of the year, My dad had my mom use a cigar box for storing her change and dollars bills.

I know when I was a kid, we bought plenty of wooden crates with soda in them. We kept all the crates. My dad used them storing storing stuff in the crates in garage, and to store items in the pantry down the basement.
We must be from the same neighborhood! :joyfull:

Here's a few projects we did at home. My mother used to buy cans of frozen orange juice. The larger cans (once emptied out) made good pen and pencil holders, for the top of a desk. We used to decorate the outside of the can with some colorful felt, and then glue on some little sparkles for color. (When I was a kid, I thought it looked just gorgeous. :hilarious: )

My father also had cigar boxes (before he completely quit smoking about the age of 45). He'd use them for storing nails, hooks, and other smaller items, downstairs on his workbench. He gave me a box, and I made it into a jewelry box. I used sticky contact paper with a Cinderella design, and covered the outside of the box. Inside, I had a little piece of felt to line the bottom. Then I put in my jewelry (no, nothing from Tiffany's . . . ;))

Oh, my necklaces smelled like cigars . . . :p

Portillo's food is just awesome. 2 have moved into the Tampa area. Hoping they'll drop down to the Orlando area.
Did I read that right? You got the Meatballs from Portillo's? Well there happens to be one right in St Charles near the hotel my hubby's convention is at... so I guess I could try them... not sure if I can stop myself from the roast beef though!

The sausage is really good at Portillo's as well. I usually get one on my beef sandwich there. Yum, wish I had one now.

Yikes, is she teething? That's when my kids tended to have the diaper blowouts. Every time they got a new tooth.
Yes, she’s currently teething, but, this has also happened before when she wasn’t.
I’ve heard same, but, don’t recall that being the case with our 3 kiddos.
All I know is, whoever invents the fist “no blowout” diaper is gonna’ be... :greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy::greedy:...!!!!!!! :hilarious:

I'd be ordering the beef, sweet peppers please and extra juicy.

I'd also recommend McNally's on Main Street real close to the River. It is a small Irish Pub and Restaurant. Food is standard Bar Type but prepared so well. I go to the Scarecrowfest there every year. It is really nice. The only hotel I've stayed in while in St. Charles is Pheasant Run. I was at a convention.

I don't know if anyone else answered....it hasn't all been revealed but it is supposed to be classic Epcot music. In the little preview it was some good Future World entrance music.
These are the only other ones I've heard so far One Little Spark & Magic Journeys rumored Tapestry of Nation song too.
