And…I’m back

Well, that took longer than expected, but I’m back now. Isn’t that what really matters? Fixed computer in hand and primed to share- aside from my established topics, be ready to hear all about the adventures of going back to college as a mrrmam-year-old SAHM. It has been quite the adventure so far and classes don’t even start until next week. Ay yi yi.


Object Lesson
Sherlock Holmes had his pipe. Dorothy had her red shoes. Batman had his Batmobile. If we asked your friends what object they most immediately associate with you, what would they answer?

I am not entirely positive that today’s Daily Prompt inspires me to write much of interest, but I am always happy to share my love of the aviators. These particular ones are from Betsey Johnson, but I have many pair.


Maybe you have a signature object you can go on and on about. Tell me about it in the comments!

Thrifty Thursday

I can’t believe yesterday was not Tuesday. But I had time to get used to it, so I’m okay with today being Thursday. Do you ever lose a day along the way?

Today’s thrifty store of choice is Jane was introduced to me by my lovely friend, Laurie. I would link you all to her so you could bask in her awesomeness, but she doesn’t blog. I know for a fact she would lynch me if I sent you to intrude upon her personal life on The Facebooks, so you will just have to take my word for it. is like a craft fair/boutique type of online store. You will find household goods, clothes, toys, jewelry, personalized items, makeup…the list just goes on and on. I adore a good amount of their clothes (and have purchased my fair share) and I REALLY love that I can buy personalized items for pretty much the same as non-personalized items elsewhere (maybe even cheaper!).

If you purchase from them you will need to keep in mind that all of the items are coming from different vendors. You may not and likely will not receive your items in one shipment and each item will likely have different shipping costs. I have never found this to be too much of a nuisance considering the great deal I’m getting.

A few of my favorite finds have been maxi skirts, chevron blouses and personalized necklaces for the littles. If you keep an eye out, you may even luck upon a grab bag or two like I did. Five pieces of statement jewelry for less than ten bucks? Don’t mind if I do.
