My Ooooold Baby Pack

I know I just wrote about marriage and the importance of making it work. Well, very loosely along those lines, here are Arnold and Maria in a dated photo of them from 1990. I realize they are making the news because they are calling it quits after 25 years of marriage, and that's why this photo was online, but that's not why I'm posting this picture.....I have a much funnier reason.See that baby pack she's wearing? Well, I have that exact same one. I mean EXACTLY. The same color and everything. The picture jumped out at me for that reason and made me laugh. I bought it at the thrift store for $5 a couple years ago and it was in perfect shape. I knew it was old, I just didn't have any idea how old since it didn't come with tags. Tessa pretty much lives in the thing. When I go out, I rarely use a stroller. Tessa will last for hours in it as happy as a clam. It was the best $5 I've ever spent. I broke a buckle on it in Hawaii, and I just need to go to Joann's and get a new one. It's an easy replacement. It must have been a good one back in the day since the Schwarzeneggers got it. I have no clue. In fact, all of the new ones I've seen I don't like near as much and for the $100 and over price tag on them, I definitely wouldn't be buying. I love this one because the back bar kicks out and is a stand too that Tessa can just sit in when she's off my back (which she often does). But HOW FUNNY IS THIS? The pack is holding up great for over 10 years old, haha!


  1. Hahaha! There's not a thing wrong with "old" stuff. On the other hand, I was totally shocked when Addison told me that they were splitting up. It's just so sad.

  2. I think that last sentence should read "over 20 years old". :) Nathan's parents have a similar one that we've borrowed on short hikes - works great!
