Look what I found...

Oh yeah!


My latest fundraising hobby!

Who knew you could find vintage Merrell hiking boots on the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters? And who knew they'd sell for so much on eBay?

Money in the bank.

This Is As Crafty As I Get.

When it comes to Christmas gifts for our nieces and nephews, our budget is a measly $10 each. Ten dollars buys stomp rockets and cute underwear from the Gap, but you can only buy underwear for kids under a certain the older kids get gift cards.

This year I went crazy and made the gift card holders into ornaments.

Time will tell if the tradition continues!

Thrift Store Find

Came to seventy five cents thanks to the half off sale!

Charlie Brown

The past few years have found us in small spaces, and we ditched the whole Christmas tree thing awhile back. This year, however, I happened upon a true "Charlie Brown" tree while shopping with my mom.

I can't imagine it has more than a few days of life left, but we're hoping the wreath hung on the inside of our front door will fill the house with that beloved smell of Christmas!
