Today I noticed my nephew had a very runny nose.
I asked him if he was getting sick.
"No" he answered w/ rosy cheeks.
 I asked if his nose was getting sick
  "Yes and it keeps throwing up!"
He stated!
 Love that kid!!

Wait in line.....

If you know me.....and you should.
You'd know I hate to wait in line.
I do however like FREE stuff so (then) I'll wait in line
as needed. The other day posted
on the classifieds was posted
a local Marriott was remodeling
and everything in the rooms was to go.
To go FOR FREE!!
The ad stated to bring your own
tools and own man power. Being unemployed
I was game. I went down and the building was
was circled w/ U-Hauls. I was a small fish in a big pond!
I saw the very long line and waited. I made friends
w/ the woman next to me. We chatted as item after item
was unloaded from the building. She saved my place while I
snuck in a back door!! It is a weird feeling to be in a dark and
deserted hotel alone. So first let me tell you what was up for grabs!
Hotel Marriott Ogden
The lamps, The desk. A buffet (the tv is sitting on) It is boosting a granite top.
The window coverings. The bed frames and head boards.
Door knobs. Art in the bathrooms. Oh and the red/orange side chair and ottoman. OH and HUGE
beautiful beveled glass mirrors in the bathrooms.  Night stands too.
Oh and a duel layered computer desk.
So the way it worked was when you got to the head of the line the "man in charge"
would open a room and you could take what you wanted.
I noticed that some people also got to take what others left too.
Some people were after the metal. Door knobs and bed frames.
Someone people wanted the art. Others wanted only lamps
and easy things to carry.
Others wanted whatever they could get their hands on.
It was a grab and dash for sure.
Everything was clean, in great repair and SUPER heavy
duty quality. (and just plain heavy!!) Sadly after and hour and realizing
I had none of the tools or any of the braun needed. I left.
I did though come home knowing what I should do next time
so I can make a HUGE killing!!
Next should go too!!!

Carly my idol!!

Once a long long time ago.
I met a like minded woman at her yard sale.
I called my friend to come to partake of the yard sale too and
they too became friends. Her name is Carly. 
She is a BEAUTY. She is a cleaver diva too.
Her design style and sassy pants are
out of this world!
Today I dropped by her beautiful home! Swoon.
In her garage I noticed this:

Are you kidding me? I love this. She said it was from Pintrest.
The lady follows through and does pintrest projects too!!

A conversation w/ my almost 3 year old nephew.

belongs here.
Me: I won't take him home. I just like to pretend he is my baby.
T: Oh pretend? Do you want to pretend this house and
those chickens are yours too?

Yesterday I spent the day watching horses eat breakfast,
clomping through hug amounts of mud and looking all
over an empty home (being built) for an echo.
 It was the best time I have had in awhile.
Life through a child's eyes....PRICELESS

Lately my sister and I have a
new hobby! It's finding things
for FREE!
Things are cuter when really!
The lantern above is about 3 feet high!
My paper whites are in it right now and
it makes me smile!

It's two sisters!
Happy Spring!!


My sister claims she isn't crafty.
I nearly choke when she states such a thing!
This year for Christmas she whipped
up some custom canvas.
Uber impressive!

I like it berry much.

It's no secret that I LOVE the
Dollar Store!
I love me a good deal!
I found these little mixed berries
in the stores w/ fridges and freezers.
One dollar for 12 oz of yummy?
What do you LOVE at Dollar Tree!

Light Brite!


I am not a big Shopko fan.
I did pop in the other day to
get an amaryllises on Christmas clearance!
And what to my wondering eyes did appear?
A few darling marquee lights on
SALE! Sadly they didn't have
any of "my letters"! I have been
goo goo over these online for weeks.
I guess it is time to pop into shopko more often!!
Happy Spring!
