keyword / harry potter:


Today’s keyword is Harry Potter. What can I say? I’m a fan. Are you? I know a lot of people that aren’t, but then sometimes we run into the die-hards too. There’s some pretty cool Harry Potter stuff out there, so I thought I’d do a little round up of it… and seeing how the last movie is coming this Friday, I’m really into it right about now! I get pretty emotional just watching the preview 😉 Anyone going to the midnight showing?

keyword / item of the month clubs:

I love receiving mail, what about you? I sometimes have recurring dreams that my front lawn is filled with packages, haha.
I came across this monthly soap club on etsy and started looking for more item of the months. Love the idea of these monthly clubs, because you can expect a package every month. Giving a monthly club is a great gift because it lasts for months too. Here are some fun clubs I found.. most of them are food but I wouldn’t have any problem with receiving a new cake each month! 😉

Today’s keyword is wood. I think wood is a material that will never grow old. It’s always classy. Right now, our goal for our place is to get wood floors installed and get rid of our yucky carpet. I just need to clean and get everything out of here first 😉 Hope you enjoy these finds today!
