Why It Works...

...because he never questions my shoe collection and I never question his hat collection. I found these while cleaning out the soon-to-be-office closet. This pile doesn't even include the ones he actually wears. I laid them out on the bed and asked him to get rid of the ones he doesn't want. He selected three to donate to charity.


  1. That's hilarious! Mine is like that with t-shirts. He has boxes and boxes at home and in the attic at his parents house...and he won't let anyone get rid of any of them...and he doesn't even wear t-shirts!

  2. And is he like my husband and wears the same one over and over so it's not-so-great-looking (i.e. sweaty, crusty and grungy?) At least I spread the love around to ALL of my shoes! ha!

  3. hahahahahahahhah. i love this post!! fantastic!

  4. This is so funny! I love the fact that he picked out 3 to go to charity.

  5. I'm a new reader. I hope you don't mind.

    That's too funny! My boyfriend is the same way with hats. He has many, but only wears one until it falls apart.

  6. How generous! We have a collection like that.

  7. I have that same problem. My husband has about 50 hats and will not get rid of any of them. He wears the same 3 all the time.

  8. Bumpkin Tip!

    You know how to wash these right?
    Top shelf of the dishwasher, treat with Shout stick if needed! Without the dishes of course. The shape is then blown by the spray, and comes out very neat!

  9. A man and his baseball caps are rarely parted...just like a woman and her shoes....There are just somethings that should never gotten rid of. :) We just buy more and larger storage containers...

  10. Far out! What a huge collection of hats! :O

  11. I wish I could do the same with my husbands hunting property! Don't think I would win!

  12. I couldn't even begin to count DOTR's hats. About every other year we give a huge shopping bag to goodwill. We have shelves in our bedroom that go from floor to ceiling and we got more shelves so they would be closer together (just the height of a hat) so now it looks like the Hat Shack in there. Those are only for the nice ones--he keeps the icky ones in the closet.

    And each of the boys have a large laundry basket full of hats in their rooms. I can talk hats all day long!

    It's definitely a sickness.

  13. My husband would be drooling if he saw this.Please don't attack me ...but I'm not a shoe person either.Flip flops maybe.. I hoard scrapbooking supplies,home decor and make-up.
    DH loves hats.My son who is 3 is picking up his obsession too.When he was a baby I kept beanies and little sun hats on him,guess he was doomed from the start.I won't show this post to dh,he might go into withdrawal.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

A Wreath-Making Party

My fabulous friend Laura is probably the most creative person I know. So when she says she's going to throw a wreath party, you know it's going to be good.

To entice moms to volunteer for our upcoming school fundraiser and show them how cool it is to work with the fundraising committee, several moms got together and threw a wreath-making party. We invited school moms to come to a local clubhouse, bring a bag of fresh greenery from their yard and learn how to make a wreath. And who knew it would be so easy to make a gorgeous wreath for next-to-nothing (I'm talking the kind of wreath you pay $75+ for in the stores and nurserys)...

The clubhouse didn't have much to work with, so we got creative and wrapped the bookcase filled with trophies - and we went tacky on this in case anyone thought we were serious...but the centerpiece was the best. Laura found it at Anthropologie I think and bought it right off of the display...

We also had a cute little hot cocoa bar available …

Christmas Card 2012 (Or The Things I Make My Family Do)

Walker's now at the age he doesn't like mommy taking pictures of him. He finds mommy "annoying" at those times.

Gone are the days I can dress my little guy in a cute red and green outfit, with cute little green trees on his pants and have him pose with Christmas ornaments and Santa Claus.

So for this year's Christmas card, I needed to get creative.

So I trekked on over to Michaels and picked up some fake snow and a couple of styrofoam balls and decided I'd let Walker have a snowball fight with me and his dad and hope I could get some good pics out of it.

He was down with my idea.

Of course, we got a lot of good outtakes on this one...and it was funny because I had him all dressed up for winter, but it was actually pretty warm out (yep bare feet - we keep it real).

But the winner and my fave had daddy sprinkling fake snow over Walker's head while he threw "snowballs" at me.  I've gotten several perplexed e-mails and calls asking me where in…
