I love to see my temple...

The other night just as the sun was about to set the girls (from the group home) and I went to see the temple. Everyday the walls get higher and things begin to look more and more like a real temple. We walked around the whole block while I quietly sang "I love to see the temple".  What blessing "our" new temple is!!

Baby NPS!

I have the hugest crush on NPS..but it is more then an hour I can't go everyday! Sighh! Good news though. There is a Baby NPS not to far from home. I went to the first time today!

They have sports clothes...starting at 5.00. Nice!

Isles of Grocery store "stuffs", shoes and Loft House Cookies!

Even furniture. These darling were 30 dollars for a pair! Cute! I knew someone I knew had these ..hmmm..after much thought and a little blog's Ms. Honeybee!!  I shoulda guessed she does have the cutest house..even if it is in the middle of no where!!

I didn't NEED anything..I just went to check the place out...and I did find a few must haves!

Apple Sauce for my sack lunch tonight 1.00
Pesto..(YUMMERS) .50
My friend Bentley swearers by the spray on retails for 14.00. It was 3.00
Organix Shampoo retails for 6.00...3.00.

I'll have to admit not a many scream'n deals as NPS but will do nicely in a pinch!

I love a pocket in a purse! LOVE!
I thrifted this baby today for 2.00.
 I'm really quite pleased w/ my self!
I just need to get my hands on some red shoe polish!! 

*** Bad has a KILLER stank!! Sighhh!

Bread Sticks and a black tie affair!!

Today I was sitting quietly in the doctors office. In walked my doctor (PA) and said right off..."Have you made bread sticks yet?" Many thoughts quickly rolled through my head. I really wondered what my doctor could diagnose w/ such a question. After a minute of awkward silence...I remembered that she and I had attend the same "Bread Making" class. I assured her I am not good at such things and we moved on w/ the appointment!

Sunday a child in my class and I turned when we heard a baby crying in the hall. We saw a white daddy carrying his darling African American baby. Laker turned to me and said. "Don't worry it's just a baby dressed in all black!"

I for the life of me can not find my car unless it has a decal on it! Honestly...hours and hours would be wasted in the Walmart parking lot unless there was something just a little bit diffrent about my car. My old decal died after 2 winters. I couldn't spend REAL money on I bought a roll of contact paper at the thrift store for 50 cents. I have now avoided a Walmart melt down in the near furture!!

Kinda Deep Thoughts!

People are wasteful!
Things turn very green (even in Utah) when it rains! 
I don't know how to use punctuation!
Never ever get stuck in the mud w/ my mother!! So not fun!
Old darling houses get torn down...and I don't have a say in the matter!!

Not all people have to follow the same rules!
Not all crafty projects work out!
I so enjoy a good junk haul!!
I love my new bread only to hone the skill!

Happy Spring!

The Divers Dish....

So I have been lax w/ sharing the dumpster "booty"!
I have been busy...and we have had some lack luster nights!

I'll share some of my favorite things thus far.

20 new in boxes 2" wood blinds!!
An awesome bread maker and manual!!(Totally clean. Don't worry!) 
A Radio Flyer wagon.
Loads of patio furniture!
A painting of a man in coveralls.

One more night.....sigh....

SWAP 365

So after looking for the address for no less then 45 minutes...I found the location of the 365!

Look how cute this wood door fence is!!

And the floor! A perfect dance floor. I didn't test it out I'm just assuming!

We all signed this massive chalkboard wall. So fun. Wouldn't this be awesome year round. Oh the hours of FUN!!

Cute decor and Ms. Honeybee!

I love pink and polka dotted!

Super DELISH cupcakes!!

Take a seat..any seat! I chose an aqua one. Aren't they cute...not even one the same!!

So the whole idea of this little party was to bring 7 cute things and leave w/ 7 OTHER darling things. Get it SWAP!! We all had 7 clothes pins...and stuck them on something we'd love to have...if no one else wanted was ours...if other clothes pins showed up...then sighhhhhh...we had to draw out of a hat. Those who didn't win had to choose another fun object! All left overs went to a yard sale of a little girl w/ a medical need!

This is one of my goodies! I shared! I got this in England!

And these!

MORE stuff to swap. It was hard to decide!

Even MORE...

Old piano turned into a CANDY BUFFET!! Yummers!

This is the loot I came home w/. The barn star is already aqua and above my bed!

I'd love to do a local SWAP...would you been willing to help?

PS: STUDIO 5 Was there...and they filmed the whole thing!!
Check it out on Thursday May 12 @ 11:00am Chanel 5.

Thanks for the invite Cultivate Ladies!!
