I'm a soccer mom :)

Princess joined the local soccer league this year. It is her first time to play a team sport and she really likes it. Finding team sports that let home schoolers in has been difficult. We can do "Upwards" sports until she is out of 6th grade (next year) but she isn't interested in basketball, volleyball or touch football. Since Texas doesn't offer soccer as a public school sport she can stay with her team until she graduates high school.  Happy happy joy joy!

Warning tons of  craptastic Iphone pics from a  few of her games ahead! Enjoy :)

junkin' with my baby girl

Last month local counties had a massive junk/yard sale. My oldest and youngest were off visiting my mom in Oklahoma so I grabbed my baby girl and headed out for a few hours of treasure hunting.

sporting her new glasses isn't she CUTE!

lovely old milk jars and galvanized holder
it was more than I wanted to spend that day

this beat up vanity/desk had great bones and just
needed some loving.
but I am grounded from bringing home more projects
until I finish the ones I have started


I could see these stacked in my living room as a side table.
Again the price wasn't what I would pay

this was just the start of 12 miles of sales

I was good though!
All I bought was an antique minnow bucket that I made into a planter

chocolate whoopie pies
no pics cause they didn't last that long

Now I have until next spring to clean out space and finish up my projects so I can bring home more unique treasures to make this house a more RELAXED home.
