I love having guests over. Not only does it motivate me to clean my house (hah!), but as a work from home, homeschooling mom, I crave adult interaction. Probably more than the average Jane. Or maybe I'm just quirky because come to think of it, I loved having guests even when I worked in an office and didn't have kids. So, yeh. I love company. Now that we've spent an entire paragraph establishing that, let's move on.
Something I like to do for guests is to have a few special things on hand. For overnighters, we keep a single cup coffee brewer, water, and snacks in the guest bedroom so they can decompress without being swarmed by small children. For day trippers, I like to keep some fancy drinks around. Like flavored coffee, the good juice, and glass bottle sodas!
So, when I saw these Diet Coke "It's Mine" glass bottles at Albertsons I just had to grab a couple! Coca-Cola has created a new, uniquely packaged bottle to showcase its Diet Coke. No two glass bottles are the same! The bottles are so pretty and unique, that I couldn't bring myself to toss them in the recycle bin. Instead I made a nightlight!
I love the way it turned out and the fact that it was ridiculously easy to do! The bright colors on the bottle light up like stained glass windows and add a beautiful pop of color to any room. It's perfect on a bedside table or for keeping a small light on in the bathroom at night.
Right now, Albertsons is running a contest where you can win 1 of 10 VIP prize packages for 2 to Los Angeles to see Primetime TV's Biggest Awards show!
