I bought these on a whim Friday night before going to the movies. They are so good!! I'm sure they are just around for the holidays so I'll have to stock up. On sale for $2.33 at Target, go try them!
Has anyone seen "How Do You Know?"
I went Friday night with a friend and we both thought it was going to be amazing...but we were wrong. Reese Witherspoon was adorable and all of the acting was great from everyone, but the story was just dragging on and on. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it, but let me know what you all thought!
Saturday we spent the day Christmas shopping with my mother - in - law and nephew. I am almost done except for my dad and grandma. I feel bad that I get my dad the same thing every year...a UK shirt and some book about history. I'm going to try and get him something different this year. He recently turned my old bedroom into his office so I'm thinking something for his desk?
Saturday night we went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. Surprisingly I think this is my first one. Joey went to one last year but I think I couldn't go for some reason. Here are some pictures...don't you all love my Ugly OUTFIT? Haha I found this at the Salvation Army. The sad thing was that someone had obviously worn this multiple times because you could tell it had been washed a lot!
Tonight I'm heading to Pazzo's to have dinner with a friend who is in from Nebraska.
I wanted to begin sharing with you all a few "before and after" pictures from around our home. To start off...the dining room. When we moved in the dining room was baby blue painted over about 3 layers of wallpaper.
It took 4 of us about 3 days to scrape off the wallpaper to start over fresh. You know you have good friends when they do this for fun on a Saturday night!! ;)
And the finished product:
It was a very bold color choice, but fun for us right now.
Joey and I decided to rent out a Peddler's Mall booth
and it opens
Does anyone else have a Peddler's Mall in their town? I know a lot of the surrounding towns here do but I'm not sure if its all over. Peddler's Mall is basically just a flea market and you can rent a booth and sell whatever you want. Joey and I went recently and rented one out.
Its just a month to month thing so we aren't tied to it. We just went through our garage and had 165 items to sell and if they sell for what we priced them for we would make over $500!
We plan on selling mainly things for the home. We like to find things and fix them up. Also I think if we can just display something in a different way people will see different uses for
everyday things. We have been working on making price tags and are going to go there tomorrow when we get off work to put everything together.
My mom's side of the family decided to take a trip this year for Thanksgiving so we could all spend some quality time together. We went to Nashville, IN...or also referred to as Brown County, IN. It is a little artist and craft town kind of like Gatlinburg, TN. Joey and I have our own condo, my parents are sharing a condo with my sister and Grandma and my aunt and uncle have a condo with their kids. Out of the three ours was the cutest. At places like this you have to decorate with woodsy, cabin-esque decor and it is so cozy! I love our fireplace. Sorry I forgot to take pictures of the shops but here are some pictures of our condo.
"Together is the best place to be"
My husband, my sister and me...they didn't want to take pictures.
Now they are smiling!
If anyone is interested in traveling to Brown County, we stayed here.
