Free Goodies!

These are a few mirrors I picked up at our Free Yard sale.

Just a cute little mirror, it's only about 5 X 7, it looks larger in this picture.

And then there was this one that I got for Baby Girls room.

I really like this one, just needs a little paint to brighten it up.

Makeovers coming soon!

We caught one!!!!

We made it back, and we actually caught a catfish when we went noodling.

You start out with a yellow (or color noodle of choice) noodle and you bait the hook and just throw it in the water.

You know there is something on the hook because the noodle will bob around.  They have something  in them to keep them on top of the water.  These have PVC pipe I think.

Anyway, you leave them a while then go back and hope you have something.

Look at Mr. Wonderful, he was having so much fun, he couldn't wait to see what was on the hook.

And if you are lucky, you will have a catfish on the hook.  This one was about 3-4 lbs.  And it was also the only one we caught out of 9 noodles.  But when we were fishing, Mr. Wonderful caught a really nice one.

All in all, it was a good weekend.

Hope yours was too!

This weekend we are heading out for a new adventure.

We are going noodling!

I know, I don't get it either, I am told it isn't really like these folks do it, and trust me, I will be watching from the boat, but I am going to take lots of pictures so you can really share the experience with me.

It should be a hoot!

Why Ask?

You know how sometimes, your Mr. Wonderful may start getting on your nerves a little and you think to yourself, it's nothing, just let it go.

Does that happen to anyone else or is it just me?

Anyway, like I said, I just thought you know what it's not a big deal, there are worse things in life so just get over it.

While I am trying, really, really, trying to get over it. Hee! Hee!  And it happens.

You know, he comes up to you and asks.  

"Did I do something wrong?"

OK, if you don't want to know what I am thinking here is a hint.   

Don't ask.

Cause if you do, I am probably going to tell you.

So, yea, I told him.  I said, You know what it really isn't a big deal but . . . . . . . 

Then, the inevitable happens and you won't believe this but somehow, this whole thing turns out to be my fault.  (You saw that coming, didn't you.)

So to any men, married or dating.  

If you don't want to know the answer to the question,

Painting, again!

A few weeks ago, I took off to the Goodwill store looking for that special something.

A bench.

But instead I came home with one of those wooden bowls that you see everywhere and super smart bloggers everywhere paint them and make them look awesome.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a before picture because I really didn't think it would be anything special, and I wanted to try the layering of the paint and if it didn't turn out right then it wouldn't matter anyway, right.

But I absolutely love how it turned out!!

Don't you just love her?

She looks dreamy, and now she sits by the door holding our keys.

I moved her so she could be seen in the light, in all her glory.

Linking up HERE and HERE!

Invasion of the. . . .


They look like they are grasshoppers on a tree but then something happens. . . .

They come out looking like this. . . . .

They are like locusts, but they sound like aliens.
