Yellow Bug

I used to drive around town in this yellow bug when I was in high school.  It belonged to Megs, my bubbly, cute and adorable best friend.  If you weren't careful you could lose a shoe through the hole in the floor board, but it got us from point A to point B and when you're 16 that's all that matters!

Megan's family asked me to stop by their house this weekend and take their family's extended family portrait.  (That was an adventure in its own.)  While I was packing up my gear I turned and saw my handsome hunk of a husband and 2 of my 3 favorite children leaning so picturesquely against my favorite yellow bug I had to snap a picture.  My husband HATES having a camera in his face so this is the only one I got, but I LOVE it!  I tell him that he really did marry the wrong person if he has a problem with cameras, he disagrees.

Best Friends

These two can't get enough of each other.

Yesterday I stopped into the local Goodwill store to see if I could find my 5 year old some pants she should would actually wear.  3 minutes into digging through the jeans I decided I didn't really feel like buying her more pants that she wouldn't wear because they are too "tight" (that's a whole other post).  I started browsing the side isles and found a painting that I really, REALLY liked.  I wasn't quite sure if I loved it so I decided to let it go.

24 hours later I ended up in the Goodwill parking lot because I was picking up something from the shop next door.  I decided to walk in and check if it was still there...and it was!  Not only was it there, but they had marked it down from $30 to $20.  I love saving $10!
