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.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
