Hobby Lobby Dress Form

I have been looking for a dress form for my craft room for ever.  I didn't need one for sewing or anything like that.  I wanted a form that was pretty and would jazz up some pictures for my future etsy shop.  Not sure if anyone has priced a form lately but man are they expensive!  After looking around and deciding I really didn't want to spend $100+ on a form just for pictures I stumbled upon this beauty at Hobby Lobby in the CLEARANCE SECTION!!

Thats right! $15.99!!!!  It was in the clearance section because the bottom is broke.  Seriously!! $64 bucks off because of a broke bottom. SOLD!!!!!!  

Hubby will make a new stand for it and its going to look PERFECT in my craft room!!! :)

Little Bit of Lately

Loving..... Spending the weekend cuddled up on the sofa with Hubby and watching the Olympics. Life is good! I also have some awesome dogs!  Bloodhounds rock!

Praying for.... The motivation to go after my dreams and figure out EXACTLY what I want to do in life.

Resolving to.... Be a better wife and quit procrastinating.  I want to get a blog post up at least every other day. I've missed blogging. I also need to quit spreading myself so thin and concentrate on whats important in my life.

Reading.... I have been reading the Shopaholic series again.  I always read this series when I am stressed and need a good laugh. I am ssooo Rebecca Bloomwood by the way. ;) \
Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic, #1)

Excited about.... Thrill on the Hill over labor day weekend!!  We are going down to Cloudcroft, NM (FAV PLACE EVER!!!) and having out with a bunch of other cool FJ Cruiser peeps!  Some 4 wheeling, BBQ and adult beverages are always in the plans.  4 wheeling in the AM and BBQ/Adult beverages in the evening.  ;)

Nervous about..... Test results from my DR on Monday.

Working on.... Cleaning out my craft room, cleaning the clutter out of my dining room, creating a plan for Brett and I to eat out less, and working on a budget. Also, a Etsy store is in the works ;)  I am also working at fundraising for South Central Bloodhound Club Rescue.  Currently we have over 15 dogs in our rescue program but need money desperately.  All donations are tax deductible. :)

Trying to.... Stay calm and carry on. I can only worry about what I can control.

Missing..... the Great Lakes in Michigan.   I miss water :(  New Mexico doesn't have any good lakes within a decent driving distance from Albuquerque.
ahhh Michigan. Michigan
Enjoying.... That I am finally figuring out who I am and what I want to do. I have a great husband, great 4 legged kids, a beautiful home, a great job, and wonderful friends.

Using.... I am working on my social media skills.  I am starting to get over facebook.  Seriously everyone complains about politics and how much their life sucks.  No Bueno... I just signed up for Instagram.

Would be great if this could just fall into my closet today :) 

Listening to.... I am in LOVE with Jason Aldean and Chris Young.  I love rock but I guess I am a little bit country. I also can hear Hank snoring.

Dreaming of.... retiring and traveling.
