i need to remind myself very often of the things that are good.
sharing the good things make me feel even better!
it's the little things that make me smile.
1. I won 2 drawings on blogs!
here and here.
i won an AWESOME card magazine (its a book really!) and a necklace!!
ill have a drawing soon, when i know ill have time to get something together and send something out :) who knows when that will be, not this week since we are getting ready for our garage sale.
2. i love going to garage sales :) here are some of my recent finds...
i acutally drove all the way back across town to get him, since i passed him up the 1st time. but when i got home and told the kids about him, i really wanted him, and said if he was still there when i went back he was meant for me :) he was there. he was marked for $2.00 and i bargained him for $1.00. because i am. that cheap.
-over $100 worth of stride rite shoes for $1.50.
you heard it. 50 cents each. and proud of it.
-every little girl needs some 50 cent dorothy shoes that are 3 sizes too big.
-listening to her 25 cent lion king cassette tape in her 50 cent peter pan pjs.
3. a zoo pass and 2 trips there in 2 weeks.
4. more orders! and a big long list of things in the works...
5. this is how i shop :)
i spent $149.48
i saved $90.05 in coupons, in-store deals, and promotions.
my shopping is usually proportioned this way... where i save about a third of the regularly priced bill, though i am usually not spending $150 a trip!!
6. just some random pictures :)
these two crack me up.
fun summer cups filled with good yummy chocolates.
when lilly came home from school, i asked her if her teachers liked their gifts, and she said... "guess what mrs. h said.... she said she's allergic to calories!" hilarious!!
the little man had roseola last week. hes fine now though :)
grass that lilly grew at school. it has now been planted into a bald spot in our front yard :)
i am not planning to re-read this over a billion times , like normal, so please forgive the errors! ok, so i lied, ive already gone back 3 times to make changes.
have a great week :)
