Happy Anniversary: Part Two!

Here is part 2 of 3 of our anniversary date!

next i take travis to this crazy antique store. it is just piled high with stuff! inside and out!

and some of the rooms are so dark you can hardly see anything.

she had a bunch of these poodles. i kind of love them.

got some awesome craft books about making stuff with socks, and bleach bottles, and magazines, and egg cartons. 

went through a whole box of photos to find some with dogs for my collection. then when we get to the counter the lady who owns the store says she can't sell them. because she has a bunch of stuff that she can't sell sprinkled among the stuff that is for sale. it's really annoying and one of the reasons i don't go there often. last time there was a box of antique jewelry that i went through for probably 20 minutes, in clear view of her, but it turns out the prices were what she bought them for and she hadn't priced them yet so i couldn't by them. eerrrggggh.

she is nice though, and brings out a box of squirrel stuff because last time i was there i mentioned that i collect squirrels. i got one that hangs on the wall, and one bank with a furry tail.

and THEN we went to the nashville zoo! horray! i have a membership and we live only a mile away, but i still love it every time.

happy anniversary faces!

those flamingos made a heart just for us.

sleepy leopard.

travis' favorite part. he loves the wax frogs.

can you see both lizards?

the meerkats are relaxing on our way out. sadly we didn't get to see the baby giraffe this time. she was in the barn. and the baby gibbons weren't out.

Thrift Share!

It's that time of the week again for thrift share! i didn't much this week. i stopped by one of my favorite stores just once, went to one antique store, and two estates sales (that were a bust). here i what i picked up.

some vintage craft books. here are some of the projects:


mr. brown bangs. made out of a bleach bottle.

a lovely wedding bleach bottle centerpiece!

cute birthday decorations made out of old magazines.

two squirrels. the one on the left is a bank and has a clumpy furry tail

a child craft book. i love the cover of this edition! i'll have to look for more of the set!

some snow globes. i don't know if they are actually vintage but i love the style. there was a box FULL of snow globes at this thrift store. i pulled out the cutest ones. it kind of made me sad to see the discarded collection.

i'm linking up with her library adventures as usual.

Happy Anniversary: Part One!

we had a really great day on our anniversary, and i took so many pictures that I'm going to break it up into a few posts! we didn't get to go on a trip this year (which is a total bummer) but we had a nashville originals themed day. i did a document a day post for my live journal of the day so we'll start at the beginning...
sleep in! i haven't done that in a long time and it felt GREAT. 

good morning murray and scout!

good morning phyllis and priscilla! every morning i peek in on them before i open the door and when they are in the same bed it melts my little heart. 

we take them outside. there are cicadas EVERYWHERE flying past you wherever you walk.
 one lands on me!  i run back inside and leave travis outside to deal with it.

what should i wear? stripes, or stripes?

travis is already ready and waiting for me.

he gives priscilla drops for her ear infections.

she doesn't mind too much as long as you rub her belly afterwards.

by the time i'm done getting ready travis has phyllis on the verge of passing out.

put on my shoes and lets go! does checkerboard go with polka dots?
 first stop...

the loveless cafe!

they weren't kidding when they said "small orange juice"

we start off with a plate of their famous biscuits. and the jam! oh my lord!

we both get vegetable plates. and we both get fried okra. too bad none of their bean options are meat free. beans are my favorite food. but all of this was awesome.

to go box! our waitress was awesome and brought me another order of biscuits to put in there.

i'm really good at photoshop obviously.
