The Cut

The garage sale is finally over! We ended up making $750!!! Okay so $500 of it was for our car but still! $250 isn't too bad and how often are you able to sell a car at a garage sale?! We put most of the items that didn't sell by the curb with a free sign and it was all gone within a couple of hours. There are still some bigger items that we had to put on craigslist. I love how effective craigslist is for making money off of unused items but it can definitely be a pain in the butt so I am hoping that everything sells quickly. Anyone in the twin cities need an upright freezer? We have two! :)

Anyway, since I rambled on and on about my long hair I thought that I would show you the pics of my new cut!

Link Party "Monday" 22

Sorry this one is a day late! We are having a garage sale this weekend and it has been taking up a lot of my "free time". I'm also a little behind on returning emails but I have enjoyed reading your hilarious comments about my Sweet Sixteen?!?! post. I believe the consensus is that I do in fact look like a teenager. Lol! That and shorter hair would make me look a little bit older. I still can't decide what to do about that one. I do like my hair short and kind of miss it at times. Plus, I didn't start getting the teenager comments until I recently grew my hair out. My husband likes the longer hair though and I like the versatility of it. So I'm still on the fence about that one. I'll keep you posted on this riveting topic. ;) Oh, and because I'm bored, I put a poll on my sidebar if you would like to give your 2 cents about what I should do.
Anyway, onto the link party! Check out last week's links here. My top picks of the week:
This Striped Wall from Mo Mamma look amazing! I love the colors!

Sweet Sixteen.....Wait...WHAT?!?!

Funny thing happened today....I was mistaken for a teenager...AGAIN!!!
This has been happening a lot the last few months. The first was when I had to go to the Minute Clinic and the guy apparently didn't look at my form closely enough because he told me that if I was under 18 then my dad needed to come in with me (he was mistakenly referring to my husband). When I told him how old I was he said that he thought for sure that I was sixteen.
