Things That Make Me Say Yeay + Garage Sales Suck

Friday, September 20, 2013


The weather has actually been cool enough for flannels (with shorts ha) the past couple of evenings and I could not be more excited about this.

Max holding on tight to his little treasure he found on our nature walk.

Our Sunday night tradition...a shared chocolate mug cake (I know I am so nice to share) while we watch Breaking Bad.  We are completely obsessed with the show and I can not believe how intense it is getting.  Right?!  So good.

Re-staining this bed frame for Max's room.  I love diy projects but I think I am officially over re-finishing stuff for the time being.  Just saying.

Beautiful upholstery swatches from Thrive Furniture for a new couch.  So many choices but I think I am leaning towards the blue in the front.   Ian said N to the O on the blue but we will see ;)

Moving and packing and house stuff has basically been taking over our lives the past few weeks and until we actually move in I do not really see that changing.  Oh and last weekend we had a garage sale and I have officially decided they suck.  Never again.  NO I will not sell everything I have for a dollar.  Geesh.  I remember moving when we had no kids and it was a total breeze (duh).  Now that we have a full house it just seems to bring things to a whole new crazy stressful level.  We also thought it would be a good idea to sell all our furniture in our bedroom before we move and now we have no dresser and no bed (just the mattress) and all of our clothes are piling up like an episode from Hoarders.  Awesome.  I may be a little less present here on the blog until we get all settled but I will try to update and post as often as I possibly can. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Breaking Bad is definitely going out with a bang. I'm sad it is the last season but I heard they are doing some sort of spin off.

Oh dear. Yup, garage sales almost are too much effort for not enough return, imo. Good luck with packing and moving! I love Thrive furniture and may I suggest just telling your hubby that the darker color will be easier to care for especially with two kids. :) haha.

I used to have garage sales when our neighborhood would put them together. Not anymore. I would rather give the stuff away to someone in need rather than sell it for a $1 to someone who could most certainly afford to pay full price!! Now I just donate or take things to my local consignment store. So much easier.

Ever since I saw you cut your hair, I've wanted to ask- how do you get those slight waves? Is that your natural texture? Or do you use a wand or something. I have almost the exact same cut and am getting tired of wearing it straight everyday.

Totally agreed on the garage sale thing! Find a great charity and take the tax deduction instead. Way better than having people nickel and dime you over what's already an amazing bargain.
