Share List Yesterday our squad spent time together shooting clay – tons of fun and a gorgeous day.  This morning I sent the boys out the door and hunkered down on the couch for awhile to watch some food network.  I decided to hit the kitchen just as a text came in from Hubby – he and the Boy found their happy place!

Then one day at one of my favorite thrift stores, namely Goodwill, it hit me. I’ll make up my own set.
