Protein Shake Review - Shake The Crave

I was offered the opportunity to try and review Shake the Crave shake mix.  They sent me one sample of vanilla and one sample of chocolate.
In their words, "Shake the Crave is the delicious, guilt-free shake that fills you up, boosts your energy, helps you feel full longer and made from 100% pure ingredients." (They do contain dairy). Sounds good to me!
I mixed mine up with almond milk and a few ice cubes.
Miss High School and I tried them both. She liked the vanilla better and I preferred the chocolate.  I liked that they weren't too sweet and sweetened with organic cane sugar.
And guess what, you can try them too!

{Get Crafty} Fall Twig Wreath

My front door needed some a-door-nment, get it?  I didn't want to buy a new wreath since I have a few fall type wreaths already, they just happen to be packed away in the attic right now.  I saw this great idea on Pinterest and immediately knew I had to make one for myself.
 All I had to purchase were some fall berries and a mini wheat bundle at Michael's (all 50% off right now! ).  I gathered some twigs that had been waiting around to be kindling and formed them into a rectangle.
 I tied the corners together with some twine and added the berries and wheat pieces.  Then I had to attach the mini chalkboard (taken down from my Back To School Mantel).  I hot glued a piece of twine to the back of the chalkboard after wrapping it around a top twig.  
 I added my fall greeting(I need to work on my leaf drawing skills) and a ribbon for hanging the wreath....and voila!
Easy, peasy and cheap-y!  It's the perfect stand-in until I get my fall decorations out and the nice thing is that I can take it apart and reuse all of the elements if I want to. I'm talking to you, future kindling!
My kind of project!

Thrifty Things Thursday


I've been pretty lucky this summer with my thrifting finds.  I've found a lot of clothes that I haven't even shared yet.  That's for a future post if I ever get it together.....
 This past week Mr. Click was with me when I went to Goodwill. It's not really his thing but he walked around with me because we had some time to kill. I only ended up with this tray ($1.97) that I plan on re-doing.  It says B/H on it, what do you think it stands for? Beverly Hills? Bill & Hillary?
As I was checking out with the tray, the hubs came up with this Guitar Hero 5 game.  Miss High School enjoys the game and I asked which Guitar Hero version we had for the Wii and he said "1". 
 It was time for an upgrade!
You can't beat the price and it works!!
Have you found any fun thrifty finds lately?

{Travel} College Exhibition Visit

I went on a solo visit to a special exhibition that College Girl had at her school before she left for Paris.
 This guy was looking down on me before I left. I was hoping that wasn't a bad sign (spoiler alert, it wasn't at least not for me).
 It was nice to be back on campus, even for a short visit.
 When I met up with her, we took a walk around and the weather was perfect.
 I never get tired of looking down at the gorges and beautiful waterfalls.
This was lovely but I was there for the opening of the exhibition.
 

 It was a scholarship exhibition of unconventional pieces that had to be made out of leather.
 

They all did a fabulous job.
 

 I loved talking to each designer and hearing what their inspiration and vision was and to see how they executed it.
Here's my girl and her design.
She was inspired by Polynesian tattoos.

 

 Everywhere you see detail is hand painted.
 
So stunning!
 The pieces will stay on exhibit through October in a gallery at the school.
I was so glad I could be there for the opening and share this special day with her!

{Shopping} Jonathan Adler Goodies- Georgetown

On our recent trip to DC, we visited the Georgetown Jonathan Adler store and I picked up a few lovelies.
 My first purchase was this charming elephant match holder.  I love all of the ceramic animals in the store but this little guy captured my heart, and he's practical to boot!
How cute is that box?
He's ready and waiting to provide us with strike anywhere matches on the hearth.  
It's too early for fires but we've been lighting candles.  
 This aqua zebra porcelain stack dish also came home with me.  There were rugs in the same shape  and color but at almost $1200, that wasn't happening.  I picked up this mini version and use it to hold my jewelry.
 Last but not least were these fun chevron socks (and they were 50%off!).
 I just tried them on and they are so soft and comfy. They'll be a nice reminder of our trip when I'm out and about (and wearing socks again).
