*why worry?* :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Or so the street sign tells me! LOL! :):):):):) Me and the crew were coming back from antiquing yesterday and Brian spots this street sign name...and I was like...."EEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK! Turn around! I need a picture of that!!" LOL.....Ohhhhhhhhhh come on....U all know U would have done it too!! LOL LOL LOL! :):):):):):):) Soooooooooooooo I think this is THE STREET I need to LIVE ON...how can U WORRY when your own street tells U NOT too!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooo back to the antiquing!! Because of the wonderful Laura Ingalls Gunn....I found a "new to me" store in the "Melrose" district of Phoenix yesterday....she had blogged about this place...and I could NOT wait to head there myself! :):):):):):):):) The store is in two parts...Paris Envy is one the first floor, and Olive in Paris is on the 2nd floor!! Just loved this store...and I got to have a wonderful convo with the owner of "Olive in Paris" Lani!!! She is JUST a SWEETIE!!!!! LOVED her!!! And she was really nice to Brookie...which those that follow me KNOW that is a HUGE bonus! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Here are some photos from both stores! :):):):):):):):):):):)







Best of luck to you Lani!!! I truly enjoyed meeting U yesterday! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Then after that store...we went to one of my old favorites..."Melrose Vintage" ....just loveeeeeeeeee their store!!! It is part ANTIQUES...part SCRAPBOOK store....I'm sorry...how can you go wrong there???? LOL! :):):):):):):):):):) And here are my photos from there! :):):):):):):):):):):)


And see...even this sign spoke to me....FUN! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)






And this ones for Maggi!!!! BLINGED OUT CANDLE! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





Scrappy goods! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Even Brookie wanted a peek!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And then it was off to a baseball game last night!! I don't NORMALLY agree to go to baseball games....cuz ummmmmmmmmmmmmm I know longer live in NY and the YANKEES won't come to me!! LOL!!! But...LAST NIGHT was FREE GNOME night!! LOL!! Soooooooooooo I had to go to get my free GNOME!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here are our photos from the game....of course it would have been better if all of our shirts said "YANKEES"....but hey....*whatev*!!! LOL!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh and it was '70's night too...sooooooooooooooo one of these photos are JUST for DEANA! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Deana???? Ohhhhhhhhhh Deana?????? LOL! :):):):):):):)











And what's a baseball game without a bunch of NON-baseball related rides for the kiddo-s???? LOL :):):):):):):):):):):)






And here is Adam with the Diamondbacks 2001 World Series trophy.....*should have been the OTHER team that won that night....cough cough .... YANKEES!*........I'm PLAYING...and obviously a sore loser too!!! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


Thanks for stopping by.....I appreciate it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
