Goodbye Apartment!


We've been back and forth to the apartment so many times this month scrambling to get everything out.  I seriously have NO IDEA how we've accumulated so much stuff.  I'm trying so hard to sell / donate / trash things to widdle it down!  Luckily, I've just discovered Facebook Garage Sales!  Have you heard of this??  Just go to Facebook and search your town + "garage sale" and see if anything comes up!  I've found two groups near me, and even finding buyers for some of my stuff.  I got $30 for our … [Read more...]

5.  Cupcakes put her [anti-thumb-sucking] glove on her one hand (we lost the other glove in the move), and held it up to daddy, and said: "I'm a fire fighter." Dramatic Pause "A fire fighter that kills." on kills, she extended her arm even further.  No idea where she got any of that, haha. 4. I send this picture to my sister.  She hates winter even more than I do, and she does NOT appreciate Christmas stuff at Target a month before Halloween.  Hahaha.  I'm … [Read more...]

Working on our House – Progress!

2014-09-12 22.49.33

  We bought all new floor vents because the previous ones were completely rusted out and disgusting.  $7 each.  Not bad!! Hobbs started putting Living Room curtains up, but they're not quite ready yet.  $17 each from Target.  Better than expected.  I'm a little disappointed in the color.  At the store, I thought they'd be ok, but I actually wanted them to be a little lighter blue.  I'll show you when they're ready.  We need to find some curtain ties… where's a good place to buy … [Read more...]
