who, me?

I received a Stylish Blogger Award from ZootsuitMama!

Thanks, Zoot! This is a fun one! The rules are simple: you tell 7 facts about yourself, link back to the person who gave it to you, then pass it on to 4 others & let them know they've been awarded. I can't wait to see what other people post.

Where do I begin?

1) Halloween is hands down my favorite holiday. I love the costumes, the candy, the decorations, all of it. ZooitsuitMama surprised me with some great Halloween goodies and what better time to show off and say thanks again? So...thanks again!

PS- NO COSTUME, NO CANDY! That goes for me, too.

2) My favorite outdoor sport is camping. Don't tell me that's not a sport. Sitting around drinking beer and cooking hot dogs is totally a sport.

3) I have a motorcycle license but no motorcycle.

4) I have only been fired once. I got fired from the swim fin factory. That's all I'm going to say about that.

5) I played the clarinet for years in school. I was not good at it. I can't read music. I hope my band teachers aren't reading this.

6) I got married in the same chapel that Ann Margret (Rusty) and Elvis (Lucky) got hitched at in Viva Las Vegas.

7) I still don't know what I'm going to be when I grow up.

Ok, my turn to tag some other bloggers (in no particular order):

It's official. Meat-themed valentines are the worst.

crafty room

The crafty room is coming along. Some new paint (Sherwin Williams Holiday Turquoise), some Ikea bookcases (I know, I know...) and some thrift store curtains, there you have it.

Work on the bathroom pretty much came to a grinding halt when I discovered that the walls needed to be refinished before painting & I would be the one doing it. Where's the fun in that??? Maybe I'll get inspired to pick up where I left off someday, but today is not that day. It's supposed to be 71 and sunny, and I'll take any excuse.

sunday funday

Gorgeous weather down at the flea market today!

This is my sister's hand holding up Mrs. Potato Head. Mrs. Potato Head has a car and HER OWN SHOPPING TRAILER. Mr. Potato Head is in trouble.
Big trouble.

Feeley Meeley is possibly the worst child's game ever. Kids stick their hands in a box and feel things. This seems like a bad idea for a lot of reasons.
Where is the Fried Chicken Department and how do I apply?
This is a truck full of vintage dresses. Wow!

How was your weekend?
