Whooohh!! That's a lot of pageviews.

Sooooooooooooooo, I was planning to do a fun post when my blog reached 1000 pageviews. Sadly, that milestone passed before my eyes too quickly to mention it at all!

Instead, today I celebrate:

Yeah. You read that correctly. 3000. I jumped from 850 views to over 3000 in 2 days!

It's all thanks the following. The most exciting thing that has ever happened on my blog. Mandi!

WooooowwhhhooO!!! (Nope, I'm not sure what that sound is either)

Or, at least I thought it was the most exciting thing. Until this:

See it? See it? See it? 
Best. Day. Ever. 

Am I allowed to print this out and frame it? 

(I'm pretty sure this was my exact expression. Thanks Google Images!)

Thanks to all y'all in the bloggy world for visiting and showing your support!

Look What I Found Friday!

I remember when Mandi {Vintage Revivals} would post "Look What I Found Friday" on her blog. They were always some of my favorite posts, due to the fact that they simply displayed a picture of something she (or someone else) had found and are planning to "revive". Its just like when I walk into a thrift store and see all the sad little furnitures and think about what I could do to them if I chose to adopt! (That was a strange sentence)

Now, technically I did find this on a Friday. I just didn't pick it up or do anything with it on that particular Friday. So, I am officially saying that it counts and I can title steal the post title.

I found this lovely little gem in....... umm... the dump.
Yup, I was on a run (well, mainly a walk because I am lazy) and made it all the way to the dump, which is about a mile from the camp I am working at this summer. Being adventurous, I walked around the fence and examined the piles of crap. It was fun :D I felt dangerous. Is that sad that is the most daring thing I have done in a while? Sneaking into a dump to look at old garbage? Well, I kinda think so. Sadly, I did not want to carry a desk down the road for a mile. Instead, my devilish self stashed it in the woods next to the dump entrance.

The next day, I was a bit more ambitious. Yup. I carried a desk from a dump down a road for a mile.

Without further ado:

Check back in a few days to see the makeover!
