Goodwilling and Shopping at Ross!

Good Evening Bloggers! I hope everyone had a happy and safe fourth of July. Mine was very quite, it was just my husband and I. We seldom entertain. It is just so difficult to entertain with me working full time.
My husband and I are mostly home bodies. We enjoy just staying home and watching television and doing our own hobbies. So we do not do the fireworks scene anymore. Now when the children come here for the fourth we do have a cookout and enjoy family time!!

I thought I would share my finds for my Friday excursion! I took Friday off from work and went shopping at Hamericks and Ross's. Of course since I was near our local Goodwill store I had to stop in to see what goodies I can find!

My husband and I are considering selling our home and buying a home that gives us more space for storage as well as give us both a room for our hobbies. We spent this weekend looking at homes. It is not in concrete that we are putting our home on the market just yet. We are in a discussion.
Also , my hubby informed me that I might get to retire in less than five years!! That is really good news. I can't wait to be a homemaker.

I envision my new home being more traditional and less cottage. Or maybe a cottage traditional. I am kinda tired of the cluttered look and would like to simple fie my life. I will always have roses in my decor though. I want to go more with earth tones, rather than burgandies and green.


  1. A new home and exciting! I hope you find the perfect home for you and your hubby.

  2. I tellya Susan, I kinda thought I'd not like being retired...but when all's said and done, I wouldn't go back to work, ever! There is no schedules, no traffic to contend with, no time clocks...just get up, do what you want to do---or do nothing. You're gonna love it. Now with the two of us when we retired, we went from large home to a smaller one. And just as you and your dear man, we don't care to travel much NOR entertain. We like being with each other and then that way, nothing and anything goes!!

    [I didn't see any Goodwill finds tho in your post?]

  3. Hello my sweet friend! I don't shoot off fireworks, but I enjoy watching the big displays! Your dishes are beautiful and as always your kind words and encouragement have lifted my spirits!
    Squishy hugs,

  4. Beautiful finds! I love the colorful floral dish's from Goodwill too! I also really like your little girlish vase! It would be a great outdoor vase for spring and summer bouquets or cute for a valentines display as well! Just a thought!
