Thrift Finds 3.0

Thrift Finds Squirt Something is definitely missing.. Why?! Memories
Call For Smirnoff back door friends are best?! I shall pass quote Small blue chair ari & the big ass chair

  1. Enjoy Squirt Never an after-taste sign.  Is it me or does that sound dirty?!
  2. Getting married and need a bride & groom for your cake?! Check the Thrift Stores. Make sure there's nothing missing though..
  3. Madonna framed up for what looks like $25. Come on, seriously?!
  4. Glasses with some childhood friends. And an Oiler's glass :]
  5. Call for Smirnoff light sign. It looks better in the picture Lol
  6. Back door friends are best. I'm not really sure what that means.. also sounds dirty..
  7. 'I shall pass through this world but once, any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human bring, let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again' quote on tinted wood. Googled the quote and that name down there didn't come up..
  8. Little blue chair for $150. Why is it so small?! Why is it so expensive?! At first I thought it was a kneeling chair, but the back is too long. Why..?!
  9. It's me! Ariana! & a big ass chair! Too much?! Lol!
The places I like close before I get out of work. Only day I can go is Saturday and that day always blows. The stores are always packed with people who are looking to get paid off something they find there. They bring magnifying glasses and shizz. I rather go in the middle of the weekday and not deal with folks who give you attitude for saying excuse me when crossing in front of them. Thrifting gets hood. I've witnessed a few and I rather stay away from all that drama. Oh, you can't forget the folks who bitch about the prices. As if paying $2.85 for a pair of brand name jeans is too much for you. Some people are wired differently Lol!

..till next time ;]

Edit - I'm linking up with Young Heart on The Weekly Thrift. Check out her blog and link up your thrifting finds. :]

Link Line-Up 4.0

Link Line-Up
Banana Foster Crepe from Coco's Crepes

I haven't hit ya'll up with a Link Line-Up this year so I figured I'd share some today! :]

  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies 'Nuff said
  • Saw this quote on someone's Pinterest but when I clicked to view the original, it was no longer available. I put it on my flickr so if you know who it belongs to, let me know.
  • I have a couple of walls in my house that need some help. Glad to have found 12 ways to create a gallery wall. Need to stop procrastinating
  • I've seen a couple of different camera tattoos recently but this one is definitely my favorite.
  • My husband and I love Girl Scout Cookies. To be specific, the caramel delites. Found this recipe the other day and thought I might try it Lol! 
  • Been srsly contemplating signing up for the Fancy Box Subscription. It's $39+s&h for $80+ worth of stuffs. A couple celebrities have their own box subscriptions on there too.
  • How to add a USB port to a wall outlet. Pretty cool since we pretty much all work on USB's nowadays.
  • Sweet words for my husband. Found it on Pinterest with no original source. :/
  • Easy DIY zippered throw pillows. Kinda want to give this a go because pillows are too expensive for my taste nowadays.
  • Here's one for laughs. You had one job, just one and yet you still effed it up Lol

Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone is having a great week and eating lots of chocolates... or maybe that's just me. I can feel my face about to break out due to all the chocolate i'm eating. But hey meow, sometimes ya gotta make sacrifices and this is one I am willing to make :]

..till next time ;]

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone

I bought this rose this morning near my job. Sometimes ya need a pick me up and today is definitely one of those days. I also got a bag of chocolates ;] Chocolate breaks me out & gives me heart burn but sometimes ya gotta make sacrifices LOL!

Valentine's has always been a good day for me. Full of lots and lots of love with those I care about. This year is no different. I'm still surrounded by folks who care about my well being and folks that I just can't get enough of. I sent out my Valentine's Day cards out earlier this week, sorry if ya get them late! It's the thought that counts right?! :]

Please remember that today isn't just for lovers, it's for all types of LOVE! Show lots of love to those you care about - Parentals, siblings, other family members, coworkers, pets, friends, and your car (they need love too lol).

Make sure to smile no matter what your situation is because every day you spend without a smile is a lost day! So do it, SMILE!

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing
- Mother Teresa

Again, Hope you have a great Valentine's day and eat lots and lots of tasty sweets!

..till next time ;]

Trial & Error Cooking Week

I don't cook. I've talked about this multiple times. It's been something that I've always stayed away from. I've had other folks cook for me, including my husband. He doesn't like it but we've gotta eat so he makes it happen and not only am I grateful that he cooks but I really enjoy his grub.

Don't get me wrong though.. I'll make some things, I make a killer egg sammich, tasty guacamole or I'll stir the pasta but that's about it.  I've helped my mom a couple times and my MIL. But never alone.

I recently convinced myself that it was a phobia. I guess my issue is I don't want my food to be rejected or know that I wasted food, you know?! But now I've taken over some heavy bills and I can't afford to eat out every day anymore. With this new stuff happening in my life I've decided to stand up to my fear of cooking and give it a go. Hells yeah!

I decided yesterday that I would make chili thanks to my friend Angie sending me a recipe.  Thing is I have really bad acid reflux (I take a pill for it everyday) and I was pretty sure the chili would jack me up. I changed it up to beef tacos instead. Beef tacos require ground beef to be cooked and since I've never cooked ground beef, I figured it would be a nice place to start.

I know it sounds silly for me to stay I made beef tacos.  But to me it's more the action of cooking then what I actually made. I made beans and rice with it as well. What I know I'm going to have to work on is my timing. The rice was made before the beans and beef were so I had to make sure everything stayed warm. Overall I wasn't disappointed, I was actually pretty surprised it all tasted good LOL!

Trial & error is this week and next week will be Get it together already LOL Again, this might seem silly to you - but I'm pretty damn proud of myself.

Beef Tacos
empty plate
I wasn't looking for it but boy was I excitamated when I found it!
I also treated myself with cookies and ice cream. The cookies weren't as good as the ones my husband makes but I never say no to cookies. :]

Do you remember what you made the first time you cooked?! Was it tasty?! Care to share any quick & easy dinner meals with me?!

..till next time ;]
