Bar Champs!

Well, TGIFriday's Barchamps has come around again and we all had a super time. All the tables sold out nearly two weeks before and over $1200 was raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation!
Here's our third place winner, Chuck!I was trying to upload a video of one of the sets, but for some reason it's not working right now. I'll have to mess with blogspot a little more later...

Yes Yes

So today I've been doing some mad online listing for my vintage etsy store, Holypotato.
The bulk of it has been my mother's mug collection, which has been quite an ordeal in itself, convincing my mother to part with them. There are three large tubs of mugs and about a hundred that are already in our cupboard. Most of them have never even been used and sat for years on the wall of our old house.Tomorrow is the Bar Champs at TGIFriday's and I'll be filming the flair from my reserved table. It's a bartender competition where they each compete for style and accuracy. I have a ton of fun every year and this year's is supposed to be even bigger and better!
Well, back to listing... gotta get this done before tomorrow!

it's about time...

I should have written this post weeks ago, but I'm having such a hard time keeping up with the blog.
I'm writing today about JeweledFibers!
I won her Give-Away for a gift certificate and picked out some amazing earrings!
Here's some pics:
I think the blue ovals are my favorite, but it's so hard to choose! Her shop is FULL of fabulous jewelry at great prices (and the customer service is top-notch!).

wonderful wednesday

It's wonderful because I'm off work. What did I do today? I gardened!

Look at these beautiful baby serrano peppers!

And I have a little watermelon! I had no idea it was even there. The little guy was hiding under a pineapple leaf:

I've been trying to pick up extra hours at the job - more money is always welcome, but in turn have completely forgotten to blog. So without further ado, here's a new treasury I'm in by Bambuca!It's gorgeous and I'm pleased as punch to be a part of it.
In other news, Allen and I are on a tiny two day stay-cation. It was supposed to be a three day camping trip, but we ended up both working the first day, which was a total bummer. Yesterday morning, however, we got up early and headed to the dog beach with Bach.
The air was super windy and the waves were choppy so we didn't go swimming, but just waded out as far as we could without hitting the rip current. Our sweet pup still had a blast and we were all tuckered out and heading home by noon.
Hopefully we can head out again next week!
