If you are gluten intolerant or even if you're in the mood for a yummy treat, head over to your local store (I found mine at Kroger) and buy a package of these mixes! You'll be glad you did!
If you want to "mix" it up a bit, then go to Betty Crocker's gluten free page. There you'll find all sorts of recipes using these mixes! I can't wait to try the gluten free cookie-brownie bars! I mean, what could be better than cookies and brownies at the SAME TIME!

Scooter is a Border Collie/Lab Mix. He is a rescue dog from C.A.R.E. He was originally our first foster dog but he was just adorable to let go. We have officially adopted him into the Buie clan!
So, let's review:
I got Hazel from the Pulaski County Humane Society about four years ago. Buie and I had just started dating but I can honestly say that he had nothing to do with the decision to adopt Hazel but he immediately fell in love with her.George was given to me from a friend who found a litter of kittens in the woods of Louisiana. Again, this was my own doing, but Buie again fell in love with George and his pink nose. I took this picture the day I took George home. Conner was adopted after his family didn't want him anymore. How could you not WANT this face? Buie warned me that having a dog would be TOTALLY different than cats... He was right! I once was a cat person, but I have converted! While I love my cats, nothing compares to the love and loyalty of owning a dog. And now...we have Scooter! We definitely have expanded our family from 0 to 4 animals in four years! We are averaging about one a year. But I'm pretty sure we are done for a while. Of course, I said that about a year and a half ago when we adopted Conner. We shall see! I hope you enjoyed a little history of our family. Until we have our own children, you have to understand... these are our children in a way. We love them dearly and I'm glad to share them with you!

A 1950's Savoy camera:
This will be the perfect $25 dollar addition to my vintage camera collection. Maybe one day I'll get around to photographing all of them. :)
- A Versatile Coke Crate:
Pottery Barn sells them currently for $24 dollars- I found one for $8 dollars! Can't make it to the Antique Shops? No problem. Order one from Etsy right from your home!
- A Seltzer Bottle:
I have had my eye on a seltzer at Pottery Barn but didn't want to pay that much. I searched high and low until I found one about like this at an antique store for $15 dollars. :) I quickly snatched it up!
- A tea cart or bar cart:
I have also had a tea cart on my list of things to look out for. I searched local furniture stores and even Target and couldn't quite find the quality that I was looking for. I knew as soon as I saw this baby, it was mine! And it was 1/2 off. I brought it home for a mere $70.
My new seltzer bottle looks GREAT on my cart!
Found any neat steals lately? I wanna hear about them! Don't you just love finding great deals!
