Dare to Dream!

I'm a dreamer!  I dream all the time.  Sometimes my dreams are realistic but lot of times that are not!  You can probably all relate to that!

When I opened my TpT store back in March 2013 I dreamed of all possible ways I can spend my extra earnings.  My dreams took me TpTing fulltime on the beaches of Hawaii- HA!

Like most, my store didn't take off so fast!  In fact it wasn't until the 2014- 2015 school year that I was making some decent money.  Now remember, "decent money" has a different definition for all of us!  Let's just say, if I wanted to buy a new car, I could easily afford the monthly payments.   What I started making in a month is what some make in a week or even in a day... OH MY!  Could you imagine?!

I knew I couldn't compare myself to others so I just focused on MY GOAL for my TpT earnings... A NEW KITCHEN!!  I search Pinterest all the time for kitchen ideas and pin them to my board "Kitchen Ideas"!    If you like white kitchens, you might want to check it out, if not, STAY CLEAR!!

So, last year I had a kitchen guy come over to give me an estimate.  I was SO close at going through with it until BAM, I need a new roof- boo!  Unfortunately, I could't choose between the two :(.  Oh, and I couldn't get just any roof, I had to get a metal roof (chi- chang!) due to the low pitch of my roof- WHATEVER!  So, now my kitchen is on my roof and you sometime see me up there eating- JUST KIDDING!

Now, why stop at a kitchen, I'll take a new bathroom, too!  Why not!  HA!  TpT is getting me closer to achieving my dreams but I need to keep at saving for hopefully just a little bit longer :).

Now, I would love to know... What is YOUR dream?!


  1. I want a new kitchen too!! I pray that I have success that you have! I plan on following you for tips! I bet your roof makes a cool sound when it rains?!

    1. Thank you Angie!! I wish I heard the sound the rain on my roof but that's just a myth about metal roofs- boo! I will have to check out your blog!! :)

  2. I want a new kitchen too!!! Now if only my bf and I could agree on the cabinets! ;) I'm heading over to check out your Pinterest board!

    1. Good luck with your kitchen, Sarah!! My boyfriend is leaving all the picking out to me although he says he can redo my kitchen so much cheaper than a professional! I tell him sure but I actually want the kitchen to get done! HA!

  3. I am glad you didn't let the unexpected expenses get you off track! Hopefully a new kitchen is in your near future!

  5. Me too, me too! Our house is 12 years old now, so our appliances are a bit outdated. I would love a new stainless steel stove and refridgerator. I hope our dream comes true.
