The new Franklin County Visitors Guide came out last week and look who made the guide…
#6! Eating a Keim Bakery Cookie.
Here's a close up of the photo in the visitors guide.
AND… just so you know he's not just a cookie spokesperson for Keim bakery, he's also a customer… 😉
Here is #6 in his fire truck jammies hanging out at home eating a Keim Bakery cookie.
A little known fact about me… when I was a child I lived in Wichita Kansas… Just for fun we took last Friday and went to Wichita to do a little eBay scouting and check out the places where I hung out in 4th and part of 5th grade.
Here's the muffins (except for #1 she's in the front seat next to me)
We drove by the first house I lived in on Beechy Street. This house house had the craziest kitchen cabinets. If Intagram would have been around then, I'm sure my mother would have put them up! We didn't live in this house very long… I remember riding my bike here, and wearing the coolest gold velvet and tulle dress for Halloween. (I was a princess.. that's a shock right?) My little sister Amy was born when we lived in this house. My dad traveled for his job, and he bought a Doberman home to keep us safe. The Doberman would whine and cry ALL NIGHT and would only eat deer meat (which we didn't have).. to say this dog made my mother crazy is an understatement.
We moved to this house on Gretchen lane. I really liked this house. My best friend was Melanie, and we played Charlie's Angels, and I was SURE her brother was a spy. It was in this house if found out that Elvis died. My dad still traveled a lot for his job, and he was worried about the BTK killer that was in Wichita at the time. He installed phones in the bathrooms of our house so if something happened the kids (that were usually locked in the bathroom) could call for help. My bedroom was the first window on the right. I had the coolest cubby hole in this room, and I would climb up in it and read or play Barbies.
That building in the background is Kos Harris Elementary… where I went to school, and I crossed that bridge to get there. It was this school my dad came in to tell me my little brother was born.
When we go somewhere new, we always try to eat some place that we've never eaten before. On this day we ate at Jeanne's Cafe. If you are ever in Wichita.. you should eat there.. it's pretty dang good!
Went shopping.. ate a little ice cream…
Today was Garage Sale day in Ottawa, Kansas… Here's my day.. in pictures…
UM.. HELLO.. most awesome intern ever!
I love this house.. this picture doesn't do it justice…
Stuff.. laying on the ground…
This about the 5th garage sale we hit. I was so depressed after all the duds we had seen.. I didn't really want to go up and look at what they had to offered, of course #1 will go look at ANYTHING just to check to see if there is anything good. She's good to have around 🙂
My garage sale partner…
The number one thing I saw at every garage sale? DVDs.
Pretty container garden
The Nazarene Church Youth Group had a sale.
I love old cookbooks.. I didn't buy any of these though…
I stepped into this VERY interesting man's garage and he immediately said, "You the eBay Queen?" I reluctantly said, "Yes, kind of." He said; I've got something to sell you!… and showed me this:
It's a Ice Fishing Rod and reel. Pretty cool huh?
Lot's of interesting stuff..
Here's what I bought…
