So, today is our last full day at my parents house!!!
We got the keys to our new place yesterday 
and we are moving tomorrow.


But this all means that I will be without the internet
for an unknown amount of time.

For the time being the blog will come to a stop
and i will be posting over on my Tumblr.
It will be easier to keep with it all cause i can update 
from my not-so-fancy smart phone..

Check out the Tumblr!!!


'Till next time...

It was a great day!

Today was a good slow day. Little Miss and I got off to a slow start. Slept in a little long. We still had a nice day. We walked to the mail box, with out sunglasses. She has this thing with the sun lately, so we are working on it. I also got some housework and home errands done today. Then i made some fresh squeezed lemoaide and with the pulp i made lemon ice. Perfect for water with lemon NEW FAVORITE!!!

I also made tuna for lunch for my dad and I and Little Miss had a "cheese grilled sandwich" haha! Now we have turkey legs cooking and my dad is teaching me a family recipe for turkey and saffron rice. Its one of my favorite dishes.

Don't know if i mentioned it before but we are moving out of my parents place REALLY soon. We found a smaller place at the same complex we were at and we have it all paid for, we are just waiting for the old tenants to move out so we can move in!!! Im so happy that it didnt take long to save for our place. :)

'Till next time...

Try this Tuesdays!!

Sorry for being MIA...i'm still around...just hit a road bump. :)

Try It Tuesdays!!

For our second round we have this very helpful post from over at Prudent Baby for a twin duvet cover.
After the move we are moving Little Miss back into her twin bed, and re-doing her room, so she will need a new blanket. :)

'Till next time...

A little help from the "experts"

I am in no way a "BIG TIME BLOGGER" at this moment in time.
But there are very many out there that I "look up to", I guess you can say.

A few days ago Bethany and I were talking about my future moving and refurnishing plans.
When the husband and I moved out of our last place with his dad, 
we decided to give away most of our kitchen contents.
Meaning, dishes, most cups, silverware, pots and pans.
We did this because we were anticipating buy all over again.

MEANING: I get to thrift EVERYTHING!!!

This is where I look to my "BLOG EXPERTS"

Enter Amanda from Here's Looking at me Kid...and her apartment therapy article!!

My favorite tips: 
  • Be picky! This is your dream collection. Don't just buy something because it's on clearance or because it's a steal at the thrift store. Think to yourself, "Tomorrow, will I regret not having purchased this?" If the answer is an honest "yes", then I would say, go for it!
  • Become a regular thrifter. I've found most of my new collection at local thrift stores. After I cleaned them vigorously, they made quite the charming addition to my quirky family of dishes. Also, if I find something new that I can't live without, it's not difficult to relinquish the inexpensive older items to make room for the new ones.

Wish me luck!!
