What to do when 2 deer and a turtle show up to your garage sale...

Well, the big weekend was finally here! We had our garage sale this weekend and despite the crappy weather, we did pretty well. Here are some pics of the sale:

view from the street - we had to invest in some flags - very effective!

The snapping turtle that snuck into the garage on Friday - I was pretty freaked out by it, just kept my distance

On Saturday morning these guys ran from across the street and into our yard! There were 3, but 1 hopped the fence across the street and got separated. I hope they had a meeting spot somewhere :(

I made chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes to sell. They went pretty well. I sold 10 of the 12 I had for the sale.

Our goal was to make enough money to buy a flat screen TV for our bedroom. Mainly because we don't like how our bedroom is set-up right now and a flat screen would allow us to change the set-up. Well, luckily we made enough to cover it! We know some peeps that can score a discount at a local vendor so that helped us out too!


  1. I think that cute little girl in the first picture maybe helped attract customers too! :)Great job with the sale! It was fun to hang out with ya.

  2. By the way, that was Whitney, not Josh.. :)
