I hope everyone starts their 2010 off on the right foot

Funny thing, when I was a kid my parents and I would do this. Of course ours never looked so good! We'd get out leftover boxes and wrappings from Christmas and markers and make silly hats, then wear them while playing games and eating popcorn and meats and cheeses we'd gotten as gifts. It was corny, but a nice tradition.
Happy New Year's everyone.

I wanna see the inside! 3bd 2ba 1931 sq ft on over 1/2 an acre built in 1890 for $190,00 in Walnut Grove

You know, once upon a time I actually really wanted to get married on New Years Eve. It didn't work out that way, so now I just dream of a really great party someday. We've got a few invitations this year to gatherings but we're been pretty antisocial and homebodys lately so I think it's going to be a quite night at home this year. But someday...!

Some things I cannot resist

Last night in an attempt to cheer myself up I took a few minutes between To-Do's and went to the thrift store. And there I found, in all it's glory, a knitted ski mask much like this one.

I'd never seen one in person! I have no idea what to do with it yet, and I don't want it to get ruined in the wash but score! I also found another set of (faux) antlers that were super cheap. And, if you are in the market for a taxidermy goose on its back, or a death mask with pine cones and rocks- quick go to Deseret on Auburn!

what she knows

I'm in love with this dress. Sadly I'm a bit too big. Goal dress?

Is it the plaid? The blue? The shape? Not sure but it's super cute...

sometimes a girl just wants to be fancy
