Starting the New Year off right!

One last day off from work, and I'm wondering how I'll ever get back into the swing of things! I've had 12 days off and I am starting to get used to the leisurely pace that I've had on my vacation. I've gotten a lot accomplished, and I've relaxed a LOT-maybe too much!

Volleyball starts back up 2 nights a week this week, then in February it goes to 4, and this is the homestretch for Eric in his senior year. I know all of this rest and relaxation is going to disappear quite quickly-so I am very thankful to have had this quite time.

I totally forgot about a package of hand towels that I picked up at the second sale last week! I just found them in my car and they were all folded and tied with string. I picked them up because the whole pack was only $3. When I unfolded them, I was in love!

Florida, New Jersey and California and polka dots!?! LOVE ♥ ♥ ♥!

What do you think? Kinda dirty, but I'm not worried-Biz can get it out! They are kinda smelly too, good thing Biz has a great scent too!

 I had to run out to pick up a new hole punch (my other one has been missing for over a month), so I stopped at our local thrift store-boy was it PACKED!! I had to park on a side road along with about 10 other cars. It was worth it though!

Wouldn't you know as soon as I got home with the new punch and went downstairs to get busy pricing stuff, I found the old one! I had tucked it away in a old wooden box, along with a bunch of tags that I had cut out and some other stuff that I use for pricing-figures.

I'm looking forward to dinner tonight! I'm trying something new-crock pot lasagna! My cousin brought it to our extended family gathering on Christmas Eve and it was awesome! It was very easy to make, and one very important thing...when it's in the crock pot, it won't bubble up and spill over the sides like it does in the oven! :)

Happy January 2nd everyone! Have a great night!!!


  1. What great items- I love those towels! And, the pyrex- so nice. Happy New year and happy thrifting.

  2. I am always amazed that you find such great treasures all year round. Very nice Pyrex too.
