Top 2 Tuesday: Things You Collect

Tuesday is here again! That means we've all survived Monday. phew!
Our Monday ended with a doctor's appointment & Miss Kinsley Anne has her first ear infection in her right ear. She's been a trooper, just drooly, snotty, coughing, and not eating/sleeping well. Hopefully her Amoxicillin (yes, the bubble gum stuff..yum) & Tylenol will do the trick and get her feeling better fast!

Onto Top 2 Tuesday, hosted, as always, by Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma!

This week's topic is: Top 2 Things You Collect

{1} Spoons, Magnets, Stamped Pennies
I know that these 3 things are very different, but Kyle & I have tried to get a stamped penny or magnet from just about each place we visit outside of "hometown places." And since Kinsley Anne's been born, we decided to buy her sterling silver spoons from places to start her off with a collection. So far, she has 1 from Asheville, NC but if I find one from Wilmington, DE, then I'll get one of them too...because she's been twice!

{2} Pocket Knives
Since being engaged to Kyle, his dad has given me a pink or girly Case pocket knife each Christmas. He has always given the boys a Case pocket knife every Christmas & he has now taken me into this tradition. Kinsley Anne received her 1st pocket knife from Daddy this past Christmas as well.

{3} Ornaments
Every Christmas Eve for as long as I can remember, our next door neighbors would give my sister & I each an ornament for our tree. We always looked forward to seeing what we would open up each year.

..I have lots of others as well. Shoes, dresses, tickets (shows, baseball games, airplane, etc thinking one day I'll scrapbook about them all....wishful thinking), doctor's bills....haha. I probably should stop some of these collections. It may help my finances & my clutter.

What about you. What do you collect? Hop over to Taylor's blog & let us know!

Until Next Time..
Love, Jen

These are all great items to collect and I know your daughter will appreciate these when she's older.

I totally forgot about Christmas ornaments! I collect those too. I love putting up the Christmas tree every year!

I started getting ornaments over the last few years, now that I'm a 'big girl' and have my own Christmas tree!

I love that you said bills.. LOL
