Letting Go...

Raise of hands...Who else is as RIDICULOUSLY excited as I am that Meg's preggers?!
I have stalked been enamored with Meg and her hubby for quite some time, and I love that I get to be excited right along with them! Can you just imagine them as parents? Gets me all giddy!

Sometimes: People think it's weird to "meet" people online.
Always: Chat rooms, yes. Blogging, totally normal.


Sometimes: We ogle over everything at C&B, Anthro, and Pier 1.
Always: If you put the effort in, you can make/thrift decor that is just as cute!
You know how they say:
 "It's not the clothes that make the girl, it's the girl that makes the clothes..."?
I say, It's not the decor that makes the decorator, it's the decorator that makes the decor!

Sometimes: We get wrapped in all the commercialization.
Always: I'll keep my money in the bank, and have more fun thrifting!

Sometimes: We get wrapped up in material things period.
Always: It's OK to take a picture and let go...
These are small treasures, but it's time to de-clutter.


Sometimes: People cherish every artifact filled with memory.
Always: That's why there's a show called Hoarders.

We might move every three to five years for the next twenty years, so I'm definitely wanting to downsize. We filled the BIGGEST truck they had last move, and we have even more furniture now. 
How do two twenty-somethings acquire this much? 
No clue, but you better bet I'm going to get us in check by the next move.
If it's not nailed down, it's available!


Snag them for yourselves or Christmas is coming...
Send your boyfriends and husbands my way!
Otherwise, these babies are going on ebay for a few other lucky ladies Christmas presents.
Hillary, aren't you the ebay queen? Haha.
You all know that tomorrow is the next installment of GBB, right?
I hope everyone has their videos ready.
I love Vlog days, so come back tomorrow!

I wish I was more crafting when it came to thrifting. I just dont seem to have that special touch.

I'm so glad I found your blog - I can't stop reading! I too love thrifting, and have found some of my favorite clothes that way.

I'm your newest follower. Nice to 'meet' you. :)

Jenn said...

I wish I was more crafty. I pin a ton of stuff on Pinterest but i think I'm afraid to mess it up haha

Courtney said...

Oh man that Louis is gorgeous...if only I had $500!!

Morgan @ xoxo, me said...

I agree with alllllll of these! And when you move a lot you do find out just how much you have acquired. On the bright side, it definitely forces you to declutter!

If you ever wind up at Ft. Campbell, KY, my hubby says if you're there, that's where you stay for your whole career... LOL. That was his first station. He was released on Honorable Medical discharge, but he said had he stayed in, that's where he'd have been his whole career. he said those guys never leave... LOL :)

I don't have the creativity or imagination for thrifting!! Oh, how I wish I did. I'd save so much money on clothes and furniture. I'm missing the thrifting gene unfortunately. Moving every three years while a pain in the booty sounds a bit exciting. Shakes things up a bit.

Hilary said...

I *love* your quote! It's not the decor that makes the decorator, it's the decorator that makes the decor!

Girl, I am an ebay fanatic - just let me know if you want any help listing, I'd be glad to do it for ya!! Can someone purchase Mr. Louis stat so that I don't have to??

Megan said...
