my wednesday...

Ahhh....Such a beautiful day today...

79 degrees...not very humid...I love days like this.

Its all about the sunshine!

So I am enjoying that sunshine and pricing things for our annual "is-it-a-garage-sale-or-a-flea-market-on-my-front-lawn" event that will be taking place on Friday.

Our sales are always a little out of control. We have become a little famous in our city for our is so fun! Women come running up telling me they were waiting all summer for the big pink polka-dot sign to go up on the street! (Yes, we even have 7 wooden sandwich boards that are painted hot pink with polka dots telling there where to find  us! Weird, I know!) 

We go all out, a lemonade stand for the kids, my hubs will be grilling burgers and brats for all the girls that come to sell their stuff. Who knew a grage sale could be so much fun!?

I am talking 10 girls that love to shop the mall, junk and pick every barn we can get our hands on...get together with their junk treasures, and to keep from becoming subject of the show "Horders" have an annual sale that would put Niecy Nash and her crew to shame!

I live next door to my sister, so once again it will probably fill both driveaways and cover both of our front lawns...and even though we open at 7:30, people will be here by 6:00 am peeking under the tarps that cover the tables...boy does that bug me! Let me shower, people! Trust me. We will all be happier.

So this is a shout out to the meany antique dealers out there that I knoooow read my blog (said sarcastically, I don't think those crusty old men know what a blog is!): If you show up at 6:00 am trying to beat everyone else to our fabulous stuff, forget it. I won't sell you a single thing until 7:30. And if you try to hide it under a table in a pile, only to later try to get me to take 25 cents for something that says $5...I will send my cute little niece over to retrieve your pile and put it back. (all of that was said with a smile, by the way...)

(all photos via Real Simple, because I never thought to photograph my own junk...and even if I did, it would never look this cute.)

Oh, and back to the subject of sunshine...have you heard Steve Azar's new song??...I am in LOVE.

Total love.

 It is such a sweet song. I hear it is becoming the wedding song of the summer. Take a listen. And yes, it is country. Sorry, this is the only format I could find it in. I was sad to find out Playlist didn't have it so I could not add it to my blog.

(And I will have to go down and mute my Playlist at the bottom of this page before you can hear "Sunshine"...its worth it, I promise.)
