Overstock discount for you.

so i'm alive.
we made the move to a new city and i am in love.
anyone ever been to cashmere, wa?
well, you are missing out.

it's beautiful.
i couldn't be happier about living here.

right now, we are renting.
with each new house, comes a new layout and more or less space.
this one has some spaces that i would like to fill.
and it's all just talk.  it's not going to happen.
sadly, we are not millionaires and probably will never be.
but i can still dream :)

with Christmas right around the corner, it gives me more motivation to check things out.
and you guys are in luck.
Overstock is giving The Crafty Clique readers a 10% discount with your purchase!
that is really cool
So things i've been into lately are mirrors.
especially cool framed ones, like these:

and i'm always looking at headboards these days.  I really like this one:

and who isn't ever looking to get a new Digital Camera?
i really want one of these:

seriously, look at that kit...sigh....

Anyways, Overstock.com is a great website.  I've purchased many things from their website and I have never been disappointed.  Plus, it's only $2.95 for shipping ANYTHING.  That's what i'm talking about!

So who is ready to get 10% off Overstock products (excluding movies, books, and electronics)?
enter code: 121745
i should mention that t
his discount code never expires, however, it can only be used once per email address.
Another goodie code?

202234 gives you free shipping for electronics.
and i might be changing things up as far as the thursday linky party...because...cough, I have no participants except one.  I think I need to change the name or idea or something....it's just in the works.
 
Otherwise, hope everyone is having a great break!
Merry Christmas!

It's been a week already!! Here's a new week for the Thankful Thursdays Linky Party


Rules are you can link up ANYTHING you are thankful for.
Whether it's a project you finished up, a recipe you made or your wonderful family...
I want it all!

And I have been given so much.
I am so very blessed and so very thankful!

Today, & this week, I am thankful that the time is now at hand! We pack up our trunk in 2 days and move to our new home! I am very excited for it to be here finally. My house is a chaotic mess right now but we are almost done packing everything and then we'll start cleaning...actually I should say that I am grateful for my husband who is cleaning the shower door right now! What a trooper!

I am also thankful for friends that I have met during this short time here here in the Tri-Cities. What a wonderful group of ladies! I will miss them! But luckily I will be only 2 hours away!

So this week, what are you thankful for?
Show me!

Link up anything that you want that shows graditude, whether it's a recipe that was awesome or you painted some furniture or you made a scrapbook page...anything!

I would love to see it.

best. day. ever.

this was quite the momentous occasion for me.
my birthday.
yes, it's true.  I have them every year, but this year was different.
because joe sat down with me and asked me what I wanted to do ALL day.
so i laid it out and it went according to plan, without a hitch.
dec.9th 2010.
seriously a perfect day.
so this is me, now 27.
 i want to know what I looked like on such a wonderful day, when life was really good and when we have been given so so so much.
sorry if it seems like i'm gloating.  i'm not.
i'm just so grateful for life, family, my husband, my kids.
i'm experiencing a natural high in my life. (trust me, i've had my share of lows)
 after sleeping in, we all got ready and headed to the donut shop.
one of the best things about birthday and kids is that they make it much more fun! 
they were so excited for donuts! 

 luke's inital taste...still trying to figure that one out.
 he's past it ;)


 happy birthday and merry christmas to me :)
 next was matinee with my girls! 
we watched Tangled...my new FAV.  I loved that movie. 
I want to watch it right now.
 My handsome boy greeted me like this when we got home.

 After the movie, I was able to leave for a couple of hours and do whatever I wanted to do.
I went to the antique store and the mall.
I carefully planned that one...it was so nice and worth it.  I found some awesome stuff!
Dick & Jane calender- $1
Dick & Jane hard cover book - $1
Roll of fabric - $4.80
Raggedy Andy - $4
Vintage Phone( like the one in TS3) $6
Christmas ABC book - $1
Wahoo! ( i'm decorating Luke's room with vintage toys)

When i got home, we had a pizza party!

 Then the cake part...don't you love it?  I do!


 After we got the kids to bed, I hosted a demo night!  I showed some ladies how to cut up a pallet and turn it into a shelf, courtesy of ana-white.com




Here's a couple I made, cute huh?


seriously so grateful for Joe in helping me make this day wonderful for me.
here's hoping 27 will be a great one!

Thankful Thursdays Linky Party #3



It's been a week already!! Here's a new week for the Thankful Thursdays Linky Party

I am so very blessed and so very thankful!

Today, I am thankful for my...birthday!
It's my birthday today, cool huh?!

I am a big fat 27 year old now. This is the first time that an age has made me feel old.
I definitely don't feel 27. I still feel like I just graduated high school!

Does anyone else feel that way too?!

So I am thankful that, with each year, I learn new things.
My life is not perfect.  I face problems.
And from these problems, I learn.
I keep growing through trials.

Through time and experience, I gain knowledge that I would have otherwise not have!
I hope I can continue to do this, each year, grow older and WISER, right?

So this week, what are you thankful for?
Show me!

Link up anything that you want that shows graditude, whether it's a recipe that was awesome or you painted some furniture or you made a scrapbook page...anything!

I would love to see it.

12.6.10

today seemed like a saturday really.
joe is sick so he played hookie from work. 
Emma actually did go to preschool so that was the only thing that usually doesn't happen on saturdays.
I ran to the thrift store to grab a trunk and rug that I should have snatched on saturday but wasn't sure if we had the means.  But we did and I was worried that someone would have grabbed them!
joe scoffed at me when I expressed my worry.
"you think someone else is going to take an old trunk?"
"um...yes!  those who know true beauty will take it!"

Anyways, it was pointless since it was still waiting for me at the store.

The weekend was low-key due to sicknesses from everyone.  Last week, I had one day of a sore throat but it's gone.  Joe has laringitis and the flu.  Kate has the pukes and Luke has a bad cough.  So it's just me and Emma fending for ourselves!
We've watched a lot of christmas movies. 
Emma is loving Home Alone. 
I am loving Home Alone.  
I didn't realize John Hughes directed it.  I love his movies. 
So today was more movies, playing, going to the grocery store, with Kate puking on the grocery store floor and her shirt.
Luckily it was just me and her.
I had to get the meat guy to come help.  He was really nice and wiped it up with paper towels.  I wiped Kate off then he took my pukey towels.  Then he offered her some water.
If you could have seen her face when he said that....
Kate LOVES water.
So after that episode, she felt better but fell asleep on the way home. 
if you are wondering why I took her to the store when she was sick....well she had thrown up Saturday night and then once yesterday.  So today, she seemed fine...until the store.
At home, she lounged about, Emma danced around and Luke ran amuck everywhere else.

 OHH and Emma got a SQUINKIE from class.  She is obsessed....and i'm fearing for my life that these will take over my home...

 And here I am, eating my BLT, as a silent home overtakes me....and can i brag that it's only 7:20 pm?
silence people...silence.
