High Fives All Around

My good friend Lauren was in town over spring break and we had a lot of fun times. First we went to dinner at La Grande Orange and while walking to the restaurant Lauren brought up Save By The Bell and we literally high fived over the fact that it was now on Netflix's. We then discussed the origins of the high five and how much we enjoyed high fives.
We also had a craft night and I turned this tea cup into a pin cushion. I didn't see it on Pinterest I saw it on Tumblr but did pin it so it is another pin for the win.
Lauren also wanted to have a bonfire, which we did I only have pictures of the coals we pulled away from the fire so we could roast marshmallows with out melting our faces off.

I know it is hard to see but we made mini smores with vanilla wafers, they were excellent!
I have been in love with this ETSY shop for awhile but I don't really do the whole shopping online thing especially if I can make it myself but I just love the design of her stuff I had to buy it.  
Last Sunday we had some unusual weather (meaning it wasn't warm & sunny) come our way and heard it had snowed up north (Payson, Arizona it is an hour and a half drive). My sister Debbie called me Monday morning and told me her family, my mom and two of my sister in laws and their kids were all going up to the snow. I took the day off and we all went and had a snow day. It was even snowing for part of the drive and it was fun for the kids to see it snow.
We had  a blast building snowmen, having snow ball fights and eating snow. 

This past Saturday my mom's neighborhood had a community yard sale. Debbie I took our parents golf cart and drove around and found some steals! I had told my mom forever ago to watch for a beach cruiser with a basket for me. Finding this bike was a dream come true! It has a basket for my library books!!!
I also found this red purse and the lady selling it said oh and it comes with this yellow bag. I had no idea what a Fendi bag was. But she told Debbie and I how she got it in the Bahamas after winning a big sum of money gambling. I now know what it feels like to own a thousand dollar purse, it feels a lot like owning a three dollar purse. 
My nieces got some dress up and I loved see them walking around as a butterfly and a kitty, best quarter they ever spent. 

William got a snorkel and was determined to use it Grandma told him he could put his feet in knowing he would see how cold it still was. He ended up putting more than his feet in and after I made his wet hair into a mohawk/fohawk.


  1. This is my favorite part of the entire post: "I now know what it feels like to own a thousand dollar purse, it feels a lot like owning a three dollar purse." Ha, ha, ha! EXACTLY!

  2. Sounds like a lot of fun in Arizona this past week! I just love your blog, Connie :)

  3. Best yard sale finds ever! I love your bike and purse. Come to salt lake and go yard saling with me.
