Some things are just more important than others- like applying my Edward tattoo before I go see Twlight. I liked it! I'll see it again if anyone needs company!PS- I am excited about this website that makes To Do lists quickly for you! Click HERE for Ta-Da list.

Grocery Shopping Tip- Stock up time

The holidays are a great time to stock up on all your grocery necessities. Most basics, especially baking supplies, go on sale for cheaper than you'll see them all year. As you can see, I have been stocking up on my most basic supplies.

In case you still have any money...

Because I don't, and a lot of people I know don't, but I think there are still some people who do. I think that finding things and showing them to you here is almost as good as buying them and showing them to you in my home. I love this bag- simple, cute, earth friendly and a cheap $4 gift idea:Besides this cute vintage tote bag, they have some fun vintage magnets and stuff too. I think it's actually easier to window shop when you know you can spend NO money, rather than having just a little money, because then you have to stress about what you want the most. Crate and Barrel has the prettiest cake plate I've ever seen:And finally, I don't really want this loopy stocking, but there's something about it I like, I wonder if I could do the same effect on paper, maybe with ribbon? Anyways, there's something really fun about it!

Spoonflower- a great idea!

From my Photojojo e-mail today I discovered Spoonflower- design your own fabric! If you are a designer, this could be really fun, or for us average people, you can send in photos and have them made into fabric. Endless possibilities! This is a purse made by Lauren O'Brien with her own custom printed fabric. It's available in her Etsy store!

Pretty Pier One Holiday

I got a little Pier One catalog in the mail last week and finally went through it tonight and it was so pretty! I'm keeping an extra sharp eye out for cheap-make-it-myself decorating ideas (in case I can actually make the time to do some this year) and I loved this candy garland: Another fun thing was the balloon tree in the picture below. I'm not sure how exactly they did it, but if you have a big bag of green balloons laying around, I bet you could put something together.I liked the pretty paper garland around it too- they had those strung around in lots of the pictures.

A Brand New Day

Breathe in, breathe out, life is good! I love these commercials.
They are a good reminder that tough financial times are not the end of the world- and you can even shop at Target still! It even makes it look fun to be a little poorer, thrifty, spending good time at home with family. There are some smart marketers over there at Target.

Halloween Tricks and Treats

Those are some angry looking Hannah Montana's! (they didn't want to waste any time posing for pictures) Miss G removed all of her costume but the white t-shirt and sparkle leggings about 5 minutes after we walked out the door. We spent Halloween night at the neighborhood carnival and then trick-or-treated down the street with friends and cousins before bed. It was a fun night! Mr Skeleton was an angel all night. I spent the day making treats for the carnival bake sale- my pictures are horrible, (as usual) but I had fun with the tags.
