This is my man. His birthday is two months away, and I realize it may seem a little early to brainstorm, but when you want to make it the best birthday ever you must plan ahead! I have one or two ideas, but dang I don't know if it will be enough. Also, I am terrible about not waiting til the day of and using my good idea earlier than planned and having nothing for the big day. Presents are the easy part: I could think of a hundred things the baby would want. Its the wam bam blow your mind surprise that can be hard....LET THE BIRTHDAY BRAINSTORMING BEGIN!

I found this rock monster my first week of working at the Peddler's Mall. I rarely buy anything for five dollars, but I knew this had Billy written all over it, so I splurged and he was immediately smitten. In my world, five dollars is what fifty is to other people, so it was a big deal!
While Billy and I were Christmas shopping for each other last year, we found this golden gem in a corner of flea market booth. We lost our minds and he immediately came home with us. He is a masterpiece!

Right here! At our two month old store! It has been very exciting and stressful, but most of all awesome and rewarding! Our computer and camera are both on broke butt mode, so that is why there has been no updates. We have also been understandably busy, but we are hoping to come back in full attack mode on this thing! As long as our new friends let us use their computer! Thank you friends!So our life has been store store store, but its been about some other things too. Lots of our amazing friends and family have come to see our creation. Billy worked his fingers to the bone making Lovers Live Longer Thrift Shop as magical as possible, and everyone seems to love it!
This is the counter that Billy and my dad pulled out of a burned down diner near our home. The other end of it was burned off, so they chained sawed that sucker off there and brought it to our store. It was nasty, and I do mean NASTY. I was even telling him to throw it away, and if I say that, then it's is a big ol' deal. But luckily, Billy had a vision and didn't listen to me and it is beautiful!
