About Me

Thrifty finds, DIY, and a soon to be Home Reno...


I love to find cheaper ways to do expensive things. Whether this be through Thrift-store-shopping or DIY decorating, I find a way to get it done. I NEVER shop in the regular priced area of a store. If I do happen to see something I love that is regular priced, I wait til it goes on sale. OR, i make it my own version of it. I love to paint and do crafts. However, being a mother of two and a night-shift nurse, I have very little time to do it. We are also in a rental home while we search for my forever home. So, I am LOVING the blog world right now as I find ideas for my new home. Be sure to follow me so I will know I'm not just blogging to myself. :-)

Our first real Halloween

Well, Halloween '08 was a hit. Lanie Mae had the best time. We made it to 5 or 6 houses and then, all Lanie Mae wanted to do was go home and eat candy. She did very well in the short trick or treating period. She said "trick or treat" and "thank you" just like a big girl.
The first "candy" she chose to eat out of her pumpkin was a popcorn ball of all things. Boy, was she disappointed. She quickly moved on to a lollipop, then a butterfinger, then another lollipop. (she only licked the lollipops a couple of times ;)

We are now fighting over meal vs. candy with every meal! We may just have a candy bandit stop by if it continues. Lastly, we can thank Halloween for Lanie Mae's newest word..."cary". In adult words, SCARY. A few of our trick or treaters were way different than Tinkerbell. She is still pointing at the door saying "that boy was cary". Bless her little heart. Maybe she won't start having monsters under her bed or anything.

This was Costume #1 (for school)
We practiced at our house before we ventured out.Off we go...Right after one more picture.Thank goodness for the wagon. Too bad, for Neil, we live at the bottom of Mt. Rushmore.

I am posting more pictures on our family site

Peter Pan (the first 20 min. of it) is one of our favorites! Walking through WalMart the other day John David says, "I want dat Tink shirt!" Ha! He will be so amazed when he sees Lanie's picture.
