First of Fall!

Today is the first day of fall!! So now that means I can officially decorate my porch with all things orange, brown, and yellow! I must say I cannot wait! Fall is my favorite season!

For my family, fall is a time for Bon fires, hoodies, pumpkin pie (that I have the best recipe for. I promise I will share it later!)Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, chili, pumpkin patch, pumpkin painting, trick or treating, thankfulness, and my favorite thing, just spending time with family! Fall is also one of my husband's favorite times of year because of all the car shows that are going on! He loves to drive his 57 chevy truck and hang out with other antique car collectors! This is something he and his father do together! Can't you tell I am really the car show type!

So, I hope everyone has a wonderful fall! Don't take your family for granted! Remember the things you're thankful for and cherish the blessings that God has placed on your life! Keep warm! Wishing you a happy first of fall!!

Someone's trash became my treasure!

I am always looking for a great deal. OK what am I saying, a great steal! I love to shop and I love to get a bargain! So I went on somewhat of a shopping spree in hopes of finding some fall/winter clothes. So Below is what I found!

So are you ready for my grand total? $14.50. Where, you might ask?? Goodwill! So, I know some people are not too excited about buying resale clothes but, I must say I am pretty happy with my tops. I got 5 shirts total for a quarter of what one would cost at my favorite store. To top it all off they are all name brand. That's right, brands like Talbots, Croft and Borrow, and Casual Corner. I think they all look pretty classy with my scarfs and necklaces! My little town has lots of resale stores and you never know what you might find. From furniture, to home decor, to clothing. So now with the money I saved on my shirts I can buy me a nice pair of jeans or two! So, don't reject those resale stores, look and see what you might find! You never know what treasures may be out there for you! Happy shopping!

Girls Night Out! Let's go GNO!

We had our annual girls night for our student ministries from our church Friday night. Dinner and a movie and a feather headband craft. What girl doesn't like a good chick flick and feathered hair. Although I didn't go all out, I did decide to decorate some. We all know about the big time candy buffets that are so in fashion for parties right now. Well, I had an idea to do a popcorn buffet, and after searching pinterest I realized, it wasn't my idea first! :) (of course not)! There are so many cute ideas out there for this. From different color popcorn to the many toppings. I did a very simple buffet (mostly different toppings) for this night and it was a hit! Planning on using this idea again for my youngest treasures birthday!!
