Score one for me.

I sold a lot of cupcakes this weekend. A LOT of cupcakes. The upside to this is $$$, the downside is I'm working in a kids consignment sale and hello deals... I'm a SUCKER for board games, specifically ones I grew up with, and let's just say this sale did not disappoint.

 Not pictured, the copy of "Corduroy" and a random "Veggie Tales" book. And yes, I even scored the Ralph Lauren purse with the books and games for around $10. Yay for half price sales!

Reliving a classic.

When I put the Lite Brite in the car, my Dad laughed and said he hated that damn thing when my sister and I were kids because the stupid pegs hurt like a mother when you step on them. Lucky for my kids, I make them pick that shit up and it goes in the same storage closet as the Play-Doh because I am NOT picking that shit up for days. And then? When I went to get it out of the storage closet to take the swag picture above? I dropped the stupid thing and the pegs went E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E. I woke up the zombie bear Husband. Oops.

I think I'm most excited about the Jenga score. More for the crafting possibilities than anything else. I wonder what I can do with Jenga pieces and Mod Podge...

  2. I have a thingy for cupcakes. I've probably mentioned that before.

    I HATED when I dropped the lite brite. Pain in the butt! Jenga will be some three D crafting for sure that you will have to snap a pic of and post here.

    1. Cupcakes is so goooooood. I might have just had the very last mocha chip brownie for breakfast because it HAD to get out of the house. My logic might be skewed that early in the morning.

      So far the only thing I can find on Jenga crafts that involve the Mod Podge are keychains. I might make one and see what people think.

  3. I banned PlayDoh from my house back in '06 I think. I got the girls a Lite Brite a couple of years ago and they were all meh. But then. Then I found my old fashion plates with the carbon pencil and you'd have thought I gave them the best. toy. ever. Score! Also, don't break it b/c I've had these since 1977 and will totally kick your ass if you mess them up this long after.

    1. GET THIS. We went on a playdate recently and the Mom broke out what I *thought* was 80's style Barbie tracing plates, but that shit is COMING BACK.
