it's a swell of a life.

Hey guys! I just got back from a day trip up to our cabin in the mountains with my mom. We left our computer there last weekend when we were up there with family watching this.

We woke up early and made some thrift store stops in Payson, grabbed the computer, then hit every single antique shop/thrift store in Pine. I got some pretty great gems. 

I love small town thrift stores. The prices are awesome and it seems like there's less competition for the good stuff ;)

It's been fun to get back into thrifting--i was pretty hardcore in jr high and high school (remember i even found my wedding dress for $3 at an estate sale?) and then i faded out for a while, but this month--it's becoming an obsession. 

My new traveling goal is going to be, that I always hit up at least one local thrift shop when in another town or state. Nothing like a one-of-a-kind souvenir, right?
What's the best thing you've ever scored at a thrift store/estate sale/antique shop?

Enjoying the forty eighth state thanks to POGO Pass + a giveaway

I love being married, but anyone who's been married for more than a few years likely knows that you can start to get stuck in a rut and date nights quickly turn to lots of dinner and a movies... 
Just before we headed off to Costa Rica I was contacted by the fab people at Phoenix POGO. They told me about their awesome year passes and offered to let Marcus and I test them out. Basically you buy a pass and you get admission into all sorts of fun things around Arizona for one year. There are some restrictions on what days you can go or how many times you cans go certain places, but for the price, you only have to go to a few stops before the passes are more than paid for. 

It was seriously JUST what Marcus and I needed. We've been really struggling with ideas on what to do and have ended up spending way too much of your free time on the couch watching Justified (anyone else watch it on Amazon, we're addicted!).

Now whenever we need to get out of the house we just open our POGO Pass app and pick an adventure. So far we've been to the rock gym twice and the Sea Life Aquarium once. Both were so much fun--next I think we might try the indoor trampoline park. I'm nervous for that one, but it will be fun to give it a try in our 25 and 26 year old bodies ;). 
POGO Pass is giving one of my readers the lucky chance to win two passes to use here in Phoenix!
