Friday Fun!

Click here to join the fun!
1.   The best deal I've ever gotten is: my super fantastico Coach purse from an outlet mall in the states. It was cheap as it was, but with an extra 30% off it was rindonculous! I lovvvvvve that purse so much and plan on going back to the same outlet on my Seattle trip (next weekend!) to scout out more bargains

2.  If I were hosting a dinner party and could invite people from my fantasy guest list it would include: Oprah, Ani Defranco, Frida Khalo, Joan of Ark and Angelina Jolie

3.  Something that inspires me is: beauty in decay. I love fall and the beauty that is found in the decay all around us. I also love crows and skulls and such things....but not because I am morbid and doom and gloomy. Rather I feel that it is in these reminders of death that we truly see life. It makes me think of the cycles of the seasons and our bodies, of death leading to re-birth and I find it truly inspiring.
4.  If I could only choose to eat one flavor of food for the rest of eternity (sweet, salty, spicy, bitter....) I would have to go with: Salty all the way. I love sweet stuff, but food is just so bland with out salt!

5.  I dream about: having a big house with a wrap around porch, a huge garden full of veggies and fruit trees, some chickens and maybe even a horse or two. I see Ryan and I living there happily, drinking wine on the porch at sunset, watching our kids run around in the garden and play.Country living at its best

6. My weekend will be spent: cuddling and kissing my hubz! He gets home tmrw afternoon from a 10 day business trip and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED! I cant wait to see him, smell him, hold him! I missed him so much!

7. If I could only watch one movie or TV show for the rest of my life it would be: How I Met Your Mother! Hands down! I love that show and have already seen every episode probably 4 or 5 times each, I shit you not

And in other news all my practicing at screen printing is starting to pay off....TA DA! My very first quilted Bam-Bambi bib! What do you think? I am pretty happy with how it turned out!


  1. Thank you for the comment, and beauty in decay as odd as it may sound is very inspiring. It's usually when someone close to us perishes that we truly start living. And How I Met Your Mother is the most amazing show ever!
    PS: Coach wallet in Oregon for $30 I was pretty much gasping for breath because of the deal!

  2. Ani Difranco and How I met your mother. You have good taste!

  3. Thanks so much for linking up today! And I am pretty much the biggest bargain shopper out there, so I always love to hear about other deals that people get. Where did you get the Coach purse from? We have an outlet near us, but I've never been. Maybe I should go soon...

    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!


  4. oooooo I just LOVE outlet stores! That is where I buy all of my coach bags and wristlettes, and I also snagged beautiful Versace sunglasses for $100!!!! Come on down to Massachusetts and we can go on a little shopping spree, I have 2 outlet malls within an hour of me!! =)

  5. Seattle Premium Outlets? By the casino? I LOVE that place! I go there every time I go to Seattle, which is every two months or so :-)

  6. This was good ! The best deal I've ever gotten was a Coach Bag from the Coach Outlet in San Juan!
