Thrifting Thursdays

I love a good thrift/antique store!

Brady is in school from 8:30 to 11:50 three days a week now in Paris, so instead of driving home I go lookin' for treasures. This week I found this beautiful bowl at the Goodwill store. It was a whopping $1!!!

Every "Thrifting Thursday" I will show you my finds for the week.

The "you'll never fill that full of food" pantry

It's definitely bigger than we need, but I love having the extra space!
It has a peerrrrtty glass door that will never let me forget where the pantry is.  Ha!  What do you store in a pantry?
Well totes of course! 
(Only for a few days though, it now has FOOD!!!)

Tonight we met the "Mr." of our lovely neighbors.
He was "happy" and let the world know that he was indeed a Mr.!  Thankfully the kiddos didn't notice!!!

This picture makes me laugh!  Look how dainty she is petting him.  LOL!  They both really wanted to pet them and they did, but it will take some time to get more comfortable with them.

Preston wore his "college days" Korn t-shirt today to put a second coat of stain on the deck.  I don't know why, but it makes me laugh to see him wear it.  Again, I don't know why?  Maybe because it says "Sick and Twisted"...?

I met my neighbor!

My first impression:



and hungry!

Well hello there gorgeous!

She has a nose that screams, "Pet me!!!".

I know we are going to be great friends.

Yes, of course you can reach over the fence and eat all our grass you long as you let me pet you.

I haven't decided on her name yet.  Hmmm...what shall it be?

Or maybe she's a he?

Our dining room before chaos hit...
This is what it looked like for 6 days while we waited for the new carpet.  I never want to move again. Ever!
I haven't been in a picture taking mood lately so most of my moving in pics are from my phone.  Hoping to get back into a better "mood" soon.  ;-)

I might have an "after" pic for you sometime next year.

Miss Me?

Of course you do!

I'm baaaack...
Well, almost back.  We have so much still to do, but I can see the light!  I will be getting back to blogging and showing pics of this and that hopefully tomorrow.  The internet guy hooked us up today!  Yaaaay!!!
Ok so I can't go without posting a pic.  I really did try.  I took this pic with my phone the morning before we moved in.  I can't wait to show the "after" pics of the deck.  It needed some love and attention.  We gave it some stain and I think it's much happier now!

It's good to be back!!!
