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!

  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.

  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...

  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.

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Let me know if you need a design and I can put something together for you!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
