Because Life's Not Crazy Enough

I came home from St. Louis Sunday night and realized that we are moving in less than a month. I quickly became overwhelmed with everything that had to be done. (Hence, the four birthday candles.)

Suddenly, an idea.
I'll have a giant garage sale! In four days!



I started piling stuff up. And the pile grew. And grew some more.
Will I really be able to pull this off?



What on earth have I gotten myself into?



Garage sale at my place.

9 a.m. - 1 p.m. (or so)


Cider and snacks peddled by the biggest littles.

Paparazzi may be lurking.

    You will do great! I will pray for perfect weather and people with LOTS of money to come and give it to you for your treasures!

  4. I want to come, so hand over the address lady! I'll try to squeeze it in between the sleepover my kids are having, and the birthday party one has later, and the groceries that need to be got.

    Praying it is a success & nary a scrap is left to haul away!

  10. Wow, you're inspiring! I'm moving in two days and I'm a wreck. I wish I lived near by because I'd for sure be stopping at your sale.

  11. Those pictures made me smile this morning! So darling! And eep - good luck on the yard sale! I always stress out before yard sales but it's always worth it when they're over because you've got a little extra cash and the weight of your unused "stuff" off of your shoulders!

  13. My emotions matched the pics of your beautiful kids: 1) Say what?!!!! Garage sale at FPFG! I'm so there. 2) Wait, how am I going to be in your neighborhood this sat w/o spending $$$$ and looking like a crazy stalker? Ugh, must brainstorm. 3) :( I cry inside. Seattle to IN. Not. Gonna. Happen.

  14. This cracks. me. up.
    Mainly because I decided, on Monday, that we too should have a yard sale this Saturday. And have been making piles and posters all day today, wondering what I was thinking.
    Maybe it's something in the air?

  19. would love to go to a fpfg-garage sale! too bad there's hundreds and hundreds of miles between the places where you and i live.

    hope the weather cooperates and you have huge sales. also hope the move goes well and you all have peace and fun in the process.

  25. Oh I so wish I could come to your garage sale, but alas... I live in a far away land. Tomorrow I'll be sending you good vibes and wishing I could dig through your things in hopes of having as cool of a home as you do!!
    PS- Hand in there with your impending "change." Rest in the peace of knowing we all hate it. Jesus is already preparing that new home, just for you!!
