Hoarding Tendancies

Last weekend, I got the urge to simplify. I looked around our apartment and just felt like we had useless crap shoved into every available drawer, closet, nook, and cranny in our home. I felt claustrophobic and decided that it HAD TO GO! So I went through all of our drawers, all of my clothes, and our storage closet with my tried and true rule: If I haven't worn or used it in the last year, then it goes.

And I present to you the conversation that was had when my husband decided to "help".

(Pulling out a huge sweatshirt with our last name embroidered on it)Me: What about this babe. You never wear this sweatshirt.

Husband(aghast): Babe, it has my last name on it. I can't get rid of it.

Me: Okay. What about this old referee jersey?

Husband: But that is like a legit ref uniform.

Me: Okay. What about this Christmas bucket hat(which is ridiculous and he does not wear it).

Husband: I can't believe you would even suggest that.

Me: You are such a hoarder.

Husband: I am not a hoarder. I just see the potential in things.

haha!! Oh my. And I thought I had a hard time letting things go!



A few weekends ago, I went down to Florida to visit one of my dearest friends, T!!! Her husband is doing an internship in Nashville for the semester so I went down to keep her company and help pass the time! We had a great time. I got in late Friday and we stayed up SO late talking! That girl and I could talk for days I tell ya!

Saturday we decided we wanted to drive a little ways and go to a farm that was having a fall festival. It was huge!! They had every southern food you could think of. Fried Oreos, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Corn on the Cob, Bacon dipped in Chocolate(yuck). Oh man we ate so much food, went on a hayride, and watched them shoot pumpkins out of a pumpkin shooter! It was a fun day. And then we got in the car in the middle of nowhereville and realized we were out of gas. Being two city girls we thought no problem. There is bound to be a gas station somewhere close, right? WRonG. T's car tells her how many miles her gas tank has left in it. And we drove that thing two miles past the zero. Let me just say that I have never been so glad to see a gas station in my life.

Saturday night we went to her church, went out for amazing fro-yo, made fish tacos at home....and both fell asleep during a movie! Fun night!

Sunday we did some shopping. I miss my shopping buddy so much! Thanks for letting me visit T!!
