Not a whole lot going on...

Today has been spent doing some fall cleaning. I have been meaning to box up somethings for storage for a while now and have finally gotten around to it. While I was doing this, I came across my Miss America plates that I forgot to share with you all! I got them the day of the big flea market at a yard sale right across from the entrance. I decided to stop by and I am so glad that I did. The lady running the sale did not have prices on anything. Sometimes this is good, and others not so good--but in my case it was good. I knew that the plates were Miss America and I thought were only going to be worth about 15 bucks each, so when she said a dollar each I jumped at the chance. I also liked that they were pink glass, which is always worth more because they have to use real gold to get the color. From the picture you can't tell it's pink.....but it is. Anyways, the best part to this story is when I went to look them up when I got home. I have 3 different books I go by and one said they were valued at $25 each and the other said $50 each. I bought all seven and I am sure glad I did!!!
I was tagged by Jen at Rosey Little Things to take part in a little survey.

f you have been tagged, here is what is requested:
1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.

Here are 7 facts about me:
1. I had my own radio show when I was in high school, and I really miss it!!
2. I am addicted to finding a bargain and this aids to my love of shopping.
3. I learned to sew when I was about 7 or 8 and my mom always tells the cutest story about when she came to pick me up I was standing at my machine going at a full blast speed.
4. One of my favorite quotes is "Even though I am in college and even though I have career plans, most days I just want to be a HOUSEWIFE" I feel that this describes me well.
5. I want to have a big family someday. I would like to have 4 kids.
6. I am in the last year and a half of college. I am studying Film History and would like to get my masters in Film conservation/preservation. My dream job is to teach film at the college level.

Hi Emily. Boy, you got a deal on those plates! Cool!

Well, OK. I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon trying to think of 7 things about myself. LOL

Hi Emily - thanks so much for thinking of me. I appreciate it! I'm sorry, but I just don't participate in the whole tagging thing. I wrote about it in my post on Sept. 9th. I hope you will understand. Thank you again, Heidi
