Hi. Remember Me?

Yes, I've been very, very MIA pretty much the last year. I've been around, though. I'm still reading everyone's blogs. I stalk Pinterest quite a bit, too.  And I've just been introduced to Instagram. Instagram is AWESOME!   I don't know what took me so long!

I didn't really mean to just abandon the blog and all of you. But when you are only wearing team colors pretty much everyday, it gets boring.  And I've almost forgotten how to dress, when I'm NOT a work!

I did have a FABULOUS find this week and last week, at Goodwill.  My husband has always wanted one of those Original Australian Outback oilskin dusters. Why? I don't know, but he has.  They retail for about $250. So, uh. NO.  Lise and I found one at Goodwill this week. $9!!!  I was clutching it to me like a baby.  She's like, don't you want to put that in the cart. NO. No, I don't. They may realize what they have and take it from me, or worse, mark it up! LOL  Hubby was one happy man. I think it makes up for the coat that I apparently, accidentally gave to Goodwill. Oops.  It looks like this:

Last week, Ben and I were at Goodwill. The man loves it as much as I. We've been talking about recovering our dining room chairs for ages now. But we're cheap. And I didn't want to pay a bunch of money for fabric, and I really hadn't seen anything I liked. Well, I found a huge bolt of fabric at Goodwill. We really don't even know how many yards it is, but it's way more than enough to cover the chairs. $18!!  Score!

And because I know y'all are going to ask. Lise is good. She is busy as ever! Leah is also doing very well and staying busy with a house full of kiddies!

So, if you are still interested in me and my life, follow me on Instagram-joybaby2558. It will definitely be updated more than the blog! LOL


  1. JOY!!!!!! I missed you! Tell Lise I said hi and Merry Christmas! And I will join Instagram just to follow you! Xoxoxo!

  2. I slightly panicked when I got a notice that someone was trying to recover a blogger password... LOL! Good to see your post and I promise... I've been meaning to do one... really I have... one of these days.

  3. How sad is it that I had to recover the password??

  4. Welcome back! I was on hiatus too so I'm checking around to see who is back~
    Looks like you got some great finds~
