Guess What Guys.....


Which by the way has made my week! The award was given to me by Laura over at Our Crazy Adventure. I just LOVE her blog. She's a Texas gal at heart but lives Germany with her husband. She blogs about their travels, recipes, and everyday life. Thank you soooo much Laura for passing this beauty along to me!

So, now that I have this award I have a little assignment that goes along with it. I need to list 5 of my current obsessions and pass this award onto 5 fellow blogs that I enjoy.

My Current Obsessions.....

1. Goodwill! The other day I went "window shopping" at Goodwill. Seriously, who does that! I promised myself that I would not buy anything at Goodwill last week so I figured if I didn’t BUY anything I was not breaking my promise. I'm thinking I should go to some type of thrifting rehab. Does anyone know if they have something like that ;o)

2. Silver trays new and or antique! I just LOVE THEM!!! I need to do a post about all the different ways I use them throughout my home...hummm that sounds like that may be a little boring for some. For those that are not interested you can skip that post.

3. Making list. This is not a new obsession but a way of life for me. Now do I get everything done that's on my list....NO, but for some reason it makes me feel better to know that I have some sort of list. These are just a few of the list I have going right now: to do list, project list, honey do list, grocery list, Christmas list (yes, I’m one of those crazies that is already thinking about what I want to gift family and friends).

4. Organizing or obsessing about organizing. The thing is I never follow through with my organizing ambitions! I just add them to my running to do list. Ya know what, in honor of my award I promise to organize this week. Hummm lets see what it will be.....Ok I have it! I promise to organize my tupperware cabinet. I'll blog about to hold myself accountable.

5. I'm obsessed with taking pictures. I always have my camera with me and take pictures whenever and wherever I can. This leaves me with tons of random pictures but I have fun doing it. I only wish I was better at it. Oh well, I’ve got to start somewhere right?

Here are some of those random pictures I was talking about above.

I was walking out of Ross one evening and this is what I saw….beautiful!
I promise I didn’t set this one up. They were just being super cute!

And the Award Goes to (in random order).....

1. Manuela: The Pleasures of Homemaking- Manuela is a fellow thrifter and decorator. She has a great eye for color and print which she uses throughout her home. Oh and I'm very jealous of her beautiful garden!

2. Carrie: Buzzing of a Queen Bee- Carrie blogs about her family and her many DIY projects. You have to see her recent coffee table transformation!

3. Nicole: Taulman Times- I recently met Nicole at a DFW blog event and have fallen in love with her blog. She blogs about her family and everyday life. During our event she said her motto in her home is "If you don't want it blogged about then don't do it." Sounds like a good motto to me. Nicole, you need to have that printed on a shirt or paint it on a cute wooden sign for your house.

4. Cheryl: The Coolest Mom on the Block Cheryl's blog if full of get DIY projects and thrifty finds. She does a wonderful job providing step by step instructions. She recently posted about a ribbon organizing method that I'm going to do. You can guess where I listed this project....right on my to do list with all my other organizing projects.

5. Bill: Affordable Accoutrements -Bill loves estate sale and dishes. This boy has a TON of dishes. He creates beautiful table scapes and blogs about things centered around home decor.


  1. I am a list obsessor too. And I am constantly trying to get organized. I have a feeling it's not going to happen.

  2. I love the pictures of the peppers. Yum! The color is so great. I also like to make lists, the problem is remembering where I put the list!

  3. Thank you for the sweet award! I hope you weren't offended by my poo-itude! It was so sweet for you to give me this award and to say such sweet things about me! I think I just might have to make that wooden sign you have talked about! And I just might market those t-shirts!! Have a great day!

  4. Congrats on your award! I have to agree with you on the list thing. I can't believe I'm admitting this but sometimes I add something to my list that I already completed just to cross it off and feel that sense of accomplishment - I'm a freak I know. :)

  5. Here's the link to that website you wanted


    Be prepared, today's post is a little "juicy!"
    Have a great day!

  6. Hi Kendra!

    Congratulations on the award! Thank you so much for including me in that great group of women! I'll post the award on my sidebar.

    Yes, thrifting (my Goodwill in particular) can become an obsession. Especially when they always have something good! Those puppies are just too adorable - what a cute picture!


  7. Kendra, none of the links work. I went to look at the last three and none of them go through.


  8. Congrats on your award! It was fun getting to know you better. And if you find a good rehab for obsessing over thrifting...let me know!


  9. Kendra, Congrats on the award..great going. I am sure it is just the first of many more to come.

    I love goodwill and I always buy something....

    Come see me.

  10. VERY funny about the Web-ring thing! A long time ago, it seemed that one person would create an award and give them out, but not ask you to pass it on, etc. It does seem that they have lost their importance. Thanks for thinking of me, anyway!

    Have a great weekend!!!

  11. Congrats on your first award!!!

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest

  12. My husband is a great list-maker. We're planning to drive cross country (Maine to Ohio, to Minnesota, to Vancouver, BC, to Seattle, Los Angeles, Los Vagas, St. Louis, and who knows where else! So he's been listing like crazy; things we need to bring, things to see, places to eat, you name it--he's listing it!

    I recently retired, so this is our 3 to 4 week sojourn before we get to old to feel like doing it!

    Just stopping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.

  13. Wow, thank you so much, Domestic Princess, for my award!! I am so excited! I also have to say I share your love for silver trays, and I just "browsed" at Goodwill this morning, too...although I did end up buying a few things. Funny how that happens! :)
