Happy Husband … Happy Life!

Happy Husband … Happy Life!

Texas summer heat is unbearable and being my husband works outdoors most of the time, I agreed to a small A/C wall unit in the master bedroom so we  could get our room super, super freezing cold!

“Pippa, it will just be a small opening that will go over in the corner”

I am in SHOCK!

I am in SHOCK!

 I walked into my room and was in complete shock when I saw an enormous hole in the wall!   The first thought that went through my mind was “I am the best wife in the world”  Then I realized that we will have the front grill of a FORD truck sitting in our bedroom    :(

This will be sticking out of the wall

In my opinion this is what will be sitting in our bedroom!

Then I had the epiphany “Happy Husband, Happy Life”.  I know, I know, it is supposed to be “Happy Wife, Happy Life”.   Life is just better when both the husband and the wife are happy!

BE HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!

 

Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Summer Cruising with the Family ~ Part II

Thrift store shopping is a great way to save money during the year so we can spend it on fun things!  This summer for our family vacation we went on a cruise to Mexico.   It was wonderful to laugh and create memories together.

Thrifting is a major part of everyone’s wardrobe and most of the clothes in these pictures were purchased at Goodwill.  Believe me, it is always an adventure to shop with the girls, to see what they pick out and develop their own personal style.   Perfect summer attire is t-shirts / jean shorts and fairly easy to find at Goodwill.

Remember to always thrift with style and have fun doing it!
