Anne and I are pretty geeked up about this weekend.  We are planning a roadtrip to Iowa for an estate auction.  We are prepared for it to be a big bust.  You just don't know what to expect in the middle of the winter at an auction, 4 1/2 hours away from home.  That isn't what we are excited about though, it's that we have a guest going with us on the trip.  Guess who?  It's our dad!!!  We can't believe it.  He actually wants to go with us.  Mom can't make it becasue she will be at another auction closer to home this weekend.  For the first time in a long time, we are splitting up to cover more ground.  Wish us luck.  We may not come home with anything but awesome dad stories!

Paris france 08' -2 157 (800x600) 
This is us a couple years back, in Paris.  We stopped to garbage pick, of course. Anne is laughing hysterically, and dad has just said "you've gotta be kidding me".  But, that old french window frame from Paris made it home with us.  


  Don't forget, Grayslake Antique Market is this weekend.  It's something to do on a cold winter day.



  1. Have fun! Love the picture of you guys in Paris, too funny!
    Oh, and the craft room is amazing!

  2. I hope you had some luck on that road trip! If it's any consolation, at least you had a bit of fun with your dad on the road, right? The time spent in reaching the destination provides a ton of opportunities to chat and have fun with other passengers.

  3. That must have been a very enjoyable and memorable road trip with your dad. I used to go on road trips with my father before, and we made a lot of good memories during those trips. Seeing your blog inspired me to organize a road trip for our family! I'm sure it would be so much fun!
