Our Yard Sale Adventure Trip

Better late than never. It's taken me a while to get a post started on my yard sale trip. Here goes...
Thursday we drove to
This was our ride. Yes, all 5 of us rode in one truck from Alabama to Kentucky and back. My knees became well acquainted with the dash.

Our first big stop was at a Barn Sale on top of Signal Mountain. It was literally a sale inside a barn full of horses, chickens, ducks, pigs, etc.
The next day we headed North again. Most of the sales were clustered together in large flea-market-style setups. We would drive miles between them over hills and around curves. Up and down the mountains. I think this was one of the prettiest spots. It was an old general store situated next to a stream.
We saw a slimy slithery snake in the stream beside the store. That was enough for me. I went back to the car. On the way back I encountered another scaaaary creature.
We continued our way on into Kentucky. There were tobacco fields everywhere!
There was one rolling hill after another.
My Dad had to look at every tractor from here to Kentucky.
We weren't as enthused about them.
And PawPaw wasn't too happy that his bread didn't survive the trip.
On Saturday we (Mom, Dad, Ryan, Jamey & me) headed back toward home, while the rest of the gang (Aunt Teresa, Uncle Jim & PawPaw) drove further north into Ohio.
On the way home we drove through 'Amish country' in Liberty, Kentucky. I felt a little bad about taking their pictures. I was hoping they weren't offended by it.
We only made a few more stops before making a beeline toward home. It was fun to experience it once in life. But I think I've seen enough yard sales to last me quite a while!

If I were a kid, I'd shop at PBK

I know this is totally random, but I saw these adorable items on Pottery Barn Kids and had to share.

These colorful sheets with owls make me smile.
I just wish they made them for King size beds!

I love these storage baskets with mini chalkboard labels!

This lazy susan has buckets in a rainbow of cute colors. I love it!

As if this chair couldn't get any cuter, it can be monogrammed!

What's To Come..

So last weekend, I went on a trip with my family to the World's Longest Yard Sale. Jamey took part of the week off, so we've been doing all sorts of fun stuff. So until I can find the time to post about my yard sale adventure, I'll leave you with a little eye candy!

I WON!!!!!!!!

A couple of weeks ago, I entered a contest on Polyvore. Just got home from vacation last night, and found a message in my inbox telling me I WON!! I was so excited. I never win anything, so I was shocked!
I'm one lucky girl, because my prize is a $300 gift card to American Apparel!

shoes times two

Saturday, the Hubs and I went shopping in Columbus. I got several cute things. My main objective was to find somewhere that carried Minnetonka Kilty Mocs. I found some!! Best part---they were on sale!!!
I was desperately wanting a pair of these jeans, so I caved. LOVE them!

Anybody who knows me, knows I wouldn't leave these on the shelf....
I also got a cute scarf and tee, but I'm too lazy to post them.
Tomorrow is a study day, and Thursday I'm leaving for a vacation with my fam. You might ask--"Where are you going?"
Well, since you asked.....

Happy Anniversary!

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary! Time flies!!! I'm so thankful I have such a wonderful person to share my life with. There is not a single day that goes by that I don't laugh. If laughter really is the best medicine, then he keeps my heart and soul healthy!
