Recovering from Vacation

I think I forgot to tell y'all that I was going on vacation. For the 5 people who read this...we've been in Utah for the last 9 days. We had a wonderful time visiting with family we don't get to see very much. I think we packed in about 3 weeks worth of stuff into 1 week. It was crazy busy, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. I miss it so much already. Especially the unseasonably cool weather we got to enjoy. We probably wore hoodies every single day. For me it was an absolute treat...the best trip gift EVER! I am all about nice cool weather. Yes, this southern girl HATES the heat. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but I deplore the unbearable heat and humidity. Do you know what we came back to? 96 degrees with 95% humidity. Do you know what that feels like? Yucky, sticky, sweaty...ALL.THE.TIME. Let's just say I can't wait to get our hillbilly pool back up and running! Oh sweet relief!



I have some Utah yard sale finds to share, but I think I'll wait for my new friend Kennesha's Junk Party on June 18th. Yes, I found the time to hit some yard sales while I was there. My frugalicious cousin Seth and his sweet girlfriend Sierra invited me to go thrifting with them Saturday morning. We didn't have much time, but we had so much fun. I hated having to pass up some big ticket items, but I just couldn't justify shipping pieces of furniture home. I did, on the other hand, buy an extra suitcase to bring some treasures home with me! There are some awesome stores in Utah...Tai Pan Trading, Rod Works, IKEA, and D.I....just to name a few. I could have filled up numerous suitcases with everything I WANTED to buy...but I didn't.



And last...but certainly not least...I'd like to introduce you to a new blog friend of mine, Kennesha. She is a fellow southern girl from neighboring Alabama, who now resides in Hawaii. She has the most adorable blog,
and is hosting a Junk Party next Thursday June 18th. You know I am ALL about looking for, finding, enjoying, lovely junk. So I think this party will be a ton of fun, and well worth the visit. Hop on over to Me & My House and show Kennesha some bloggy love. I'm telling ya, you won't regret it. There is plenty of eye candy to enjoy! And mark your calendars for June 18th's Junk Party!

Sounds like a great vacation and I too am looking forward to seeing what you found when you went "thrifting" (What a perfect word!) www.satisfiedsole.com

I used to LOVE the HOT summers of the south, but the older I get, the more I enjoy cooler days/nights. Your trip sounds great*! _Ashley ~

Vacations, especially to see family, are always good things! Thanks for the tip on the junk party!

Hi Amanda!
So glad you had a fun trip! It has been unseasonably warm here. Today it rained all day long.

I lived on the east coast growing up and remember the humidity.

I can't wait to see the treasures you found!

XOXO
Jen
