Just some thoughts on my personal life- shabby cottage/chic decor, thrifting/junking, dogs with smushed-in faces, and pretty much anything else...

Thoughts and Prayers

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers. My fiance's dad passed away suddenly yesterday morning. He was a great man and we already miss him. Life will never be the same.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things

I developed some new loves (or as the fiance likes to call them obsessions) in 2010. I fully expect them to follow me into 2011. Here's a list of my top five...

1. Harry Potter. The books. The movies. The characters. I love it all. I am currently on the fourth book and I just can't get enough of it!

2. Glee. Yes somewhere along the way last year I fell in love with the hilariously entertaining lives of the McKinley High Glee Club's misfits. I'm a dork Gleek.

3. Sewing. One of my many new hobbies It's fun. It's a money saver. And I'm not entirely bad at it.

4. Chalkboard paint. Love this stuff. On anything. And everything.

5. Junking. I have always been a pretty serious thrifter. Then I discovered junking. And it's pretty much the coolest hobby ever. My visit to the Oronoco Gold Rush Days and Junk Bonanza sealed my fate.

What about you? What new loves did you pick up in 2010 that you will carry with you into 2011? New hobbies? TV shows? Events? Places?
