National Help a Pregnant Woman Day is TOMORROW!

You still have time to plan an act of kindness for someone you know.  This might mean the world to them and I bet it will make YOU feel all warm and fuzzy too. 😉

I am so excited to share with you the testimonials of how this little idea has affected people!  If you have anything you want to share, you can email me or leave it in the comments.

I am not doing a Mr. Linky or anything, but I would be happy to post a link to your blog if you blog about it. 

(I know some of you have already, but I didnt keep track *boo, hiss* so please just let me know again)

I will be on TCL again this Thursday at 3:00pm to talk about blogging.  We have four blogs scheduled to discuss, and three of them are local.  So be sure to tune in if you are a MN blogger!  Also, the non local blogger is one of my favorites of all time

I cant wait to show you how we are going to feature her!!

There should be a link up same day if you can't tune in.


And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I am SO so excited for a certain 'season' in Minnesota.  Its is one of my favorite ways to spend some time… and spend my dimes!

Thats right, Garage Sale Season is soon upon us!  Do you have any great Garage Sales tips?  Do you like to visit estate sales and thrift shops?   Do you even have garage sales in your area??

I cant wait to share with you some of my 'trash to treasure' finds!

Share with your friends!

  1. oh my gosh, we just found an awesome garbage find the other day. it’s a bench type thing, with a pad and a drawer underneath. i took the old cover off, put new fabric on the pad and it looks great in hannah’s room.
    i love garage saling. research that week who and where the sales are. try to hit up block sales to save time.
    p.s. i’m thinking of doing something coming up regarding garage sales and blogging. you might (*might*) be interested???? i don’t know. could be a crazy idea too. shoot me an email if you want to hear it.

  2. Oohh, garage sale season- it’ll be here before we know it! I should start making a list of things I need to watch for this year…
    Also, I have some friends who are real garage sale fanatics who I usually share my list with and they turn into my own little army of personal shoppers! (they’ve found an exersaucer, a sit n stand stroller, and a big wheel for us so far!) If you have a network of friends who live near great garage sale neighborhoods, this strategy can work out great!
