Cowboy take me away, fly this girl as high as you can into the wild blue.

Today I cleaned most of the house. Specifically our fridge. It some how got piled up with old left overs which needed to get thrown away. It was gross.  But anyways.. after cleaning i got tired of the way my picture frames looked so i switched things around a little. 

We were at the dollar store the other day and i bought a chive plant growing kit. It came with dirt, seeds, and a little pot. But I didn't like the pot and chad and i came up with the idea of putting it inside a book. So we went to di and found some cool old looking books and i cut a square in it, modge podged the pages, put a plastic container inside and planted my plant. The dirt seems real cheap so we will see if anything even grows. But yeah it turned out pretty cool. It was awful cutting through the pages. I don't want to ever have to do it again. haha.

Today we went to di again.. because i enjoy it. I think chad does too, but he wont admit it. He buys things every once in awhile. I have a hard time there though because i don't buy things everytime i go there, i mostly just like to look. But every once in awhile there is a cool thing and sometimes i second guess myself wanting it and then i leave and the next day i go back for it and its gone. Once this was with an old antique looking sewing desk, and a set of plates that were blue vintage nautical ship looking. They were both beautiful. And i regret not buying them. So today there were some plates i really liked and thought about not getting them but decide it was for the best that i did..haha. so here they are. 

 This one is a set of 5 with a little matching bowl. 

 And this one sadly was all by itself. Im not sure what im going to do with it yet? But its way pretty right?!

Here is also a way cool old Robinson Crusoe book chad found us that we brought home as well. 

And thats about it lately.
