We were fortunate this summer to have a family reunion in Utah at Deb’s house. Having all three families together doesn’t happen very often. We love watching all the cousins “hanging” out together and we do our best to to choose activities that can include everyone.
This year we did something a little different, we reserved one day for Sherri, Deb and I to go shopping (no kids, no hubby’s) and talk about our blog as much as we wanted! We managed to do a lot of talking, laughing and shopping in several stores, but one store was my favorite. A thrift store, yes I’m a HUGE thrift store junkie. At least half of the props in my posts have been purchased from a thrift stores.
The tray in these pictures is one of my purchases from my shopping trip with Deb and Sherri. It cost me a whopping $1.50! I found it on a shelf underneath a bunch of craft supplies. Few things in life are better than a great thrift store find. Except maybe……..
Eating some amazing Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk Cookies. These cookies are as good as they look, crunchy on the outside chewy on the inside with big chunks of chocolate.
Grab a large glass of milk (yes the glass in the picture is another thrift store find) and you will be in cookie heaven.
Not on a gluten free diet? Don’t worry we have you covered, try one of these awesome cookie recipes with regular flour. Revolution Cookies, Righteous Chocolate Chip Cookies, Wicked Good Chocolate Chip Cookies, Soft Almond Cookies
