Everyday Treasures

So, I was really bored today and decided to go to this discount antique store down the street, and that wasn't quite what I expected, but it was okay. 

In my quest for something to do (besides go to work, clean the apt, and be bored at home), I decided to go and check out these consignment stores out in Roy that I had been meaning to check out for quite some time.  The first place I went was Everyday Treasures, which I was pretty impressed by.  I purchased a couple of things which I am extremely excited for.  (see below)

I am seriously in love with this stuff...hubby actually likes it too! :)  I like on the chicken tin that the chicks look relatively close to real chicks, and they even have little feathers coming in, so whoever painted/made this...kudos!  (I really miss my babies...) And if anyone knows where I can find more tins like this that have chickens on them, let me know!  (p.s. it doesn't have to be a tin either, it could be a pic too)  Also, the moose hook is very very neat!!!  Its super heavy, but I'm looking forward to hanging it up and figuring something neat to hang from it.  It also has some super cool details on it..I'm waaay excited about my purchases, and they weren't very much money either!  I'll have to go back there when I have some more money, and probably more space.  :)  I went to the other consignment store right next door, they had a lot of really neat furniture that I would consider buying if I had space...I also sent them an email to see if they would be interested in selling some of our metal home decor, as well as several other places, so we'll see what happens.  (plus, they had lots of space on their walls, so...maybe!!)

Our new favorite thing for breakfast! has slices of ham or turkey, sausage, cheese, eggs, salsa, and salt and pepper (and maybe other seasonings).  ITS SOOO GOOD!!!! 

And, this is my latest most favorite purchase from the DI...$3.00 baby!! 
Thank you.

Fun tidbits..

Not sure if I already mentioned this or not, but hubby got an internship with John Deere for this summer.  We are both extremely excited about the opportunities that could come from this.  Plus, its a company that he's always wanted to work for.  Most of the family seems excited about it for us too, so, hopefully everything works out.  (side thought: man. I really need to get a vacuum) His internship is out in Davenport, Iowa, so really far away from home.  I'm going to try to go out there to see him a couple of times during the 3 months, but we'll see how things go.  The fun tidbit for this is that the show American Pickers on the History Channel's main store is about 15 miles away from Davenport. 

Also, kind of another tidbit for Davenport is that they have a 451 crime rating, while Ogden has a there is apparently a lot more crime, but there is also 1600-ish people per square mile, while Ogden has 3000 something.  So it seems really interesting to me.  I just hope we end up in a safe area. 

AND...Topper's Bakery, here in Ogden, on 25th-ish and Monroe, is AMAZING!!  Their donuts are so delicious and hubby really really likes their hamburger buns.  YUM YUM YUM!!!  And their prices are pretty reasonable too!  That being said, I'm about to eat some cinnamon twists and glazed donuts that I just got from there on the way home from work!  Mmm..
