GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU! :)Hey y’all. Sorry for the late post. Life got in the way in the form of a rescheduled tutoring appointment and the winter storm warning that should bring 4 – 8 inches of snow our way over night and into tomorrow.

Bloggiversary Celebration – Day 4 – Guest Post from Haley @ the distracted blogger

Today is Day 4 in our week long celebration and we have with us Haley from The Distracted Blogger. If you’ve read any of the comments on my posts, you’ll recognize this familiar face. I was so excited when Haley offered to guest post. I love her new blog and I just knew I had to ask her to write about thrifting. I was in awe when I saw all the awesome things she gets from local thrift shops! This girl knows her vintage style on a budget. She’s bringing her best tips for thrift today! Enjoy! Thanks Haley!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My first guest post! How exciting, especially for someone who has been a big supporter of me from the beginning!

Bloggiversary Celebration – Day 3- Going Forward: Blog Goals 2011 – 2012

Hey everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the bloggiversary stuff. Today I’d like to take a brief moment to share some blog goals for the upcoming year. I’m going to be honest here. When I started blogging I thought it would be “easy” and that I’d just do it here and there for fun and make a part time job out of it. HA! Blogging takes time and dedication to make it work if you actually want to turn it from a hobby into a real job. I’ve learned that the hard way. So I sat down recently and started a list of goals for the upcoming year. I may end up adding to them, who knows?(An aside: If you’re blogging for $$$ and have some goals you think I should include or advice for a newbie PLEASE leave me a comment. I’m still very new and learning as I go…

Bloggiversary Celebration – Day 2 – Guest Post: Tales of the Scotts

It’s only appropriate that Eva @ Tales of the Scotts guest posts for me today. Last year during her one year bloggiversary she asked me to share a project I had done based on something I saw during her I heart Mondays segment, so I did a guest post for her and ended up with my own blog! She’s busy with her two beautiful kiddos but I knew I wanted her to share something and so I begged, pleaded asked nicely if I could include one of my favorite posts of hers during our week long celebration and she said yes! Without further ado I bring you Eva’s Pumpkin Bread recipe. I made this last year after she blogged about it and I can totally vouch for how awesome it is. The one recipe makes a nice amount of bread and it is SO creamy and delicious. (And she’s totally…

Bloggiversary Celebration – Day 1 – The Year in Review

Due to a cold last week, I missed my own one year anniversary in blogging, so I decided to do some celebrating this week. Today I wanted to take a look back at some of the projects I’ve tackled in a year. (It kind of boggles me that I’ve done this stuff and showed our mess to the world – ha!) If you’ve missed any of these projects you can click on the caption below to go directly to that post.The most popular post by far in the past year has been this one:Who knew some dollar store frames would get that much attention?I still use those on a daily basis too. And they haven’t broken yet! Next up is my post on how I organize my kitchen. I’ll be honest with you here. I got the command hook idea to organize the measuring cups from my mother’s kitchen as I…
