We had planned on going to the drive-in movie theatre, but with the temperature at 99 degrees – we passed. It was awful just walking from the car to the stores we went into due to the heat mixed with high humidity. When we got back into town at 9:30 last night – it was still 86 degrees!
I would have like to go to the zoo as well, but forget that idea.
We did however go to A BUNCH of stores shopping for nothing in particular.
Sonic (Happy Hour Drinks!)
Pei Wei (Dinner)
Those are just the places Matt and I went to in the big city! I did more before I even left town.
I was one busy shopping lady!
While in BAM, I went into the store ahead of Matt while he did whatever outside. When he found me, he said – “I should have known you wouldn’t be looking at the regular priced books.”
Ha ha ha!
Sometimes, he knows me so well!
Of course I always go to the clearance book selection first!
I like a good deal! Books are way overpriced in my opinion. Why should I pay $15 when I can wait and get them for $5? Or an even better deal when I buy used?
I did go to 3 Goodwill stores this weekend - only found 3 good books. I need more! I will have to keep searching. I did email a lady about 2 books she is selling online that I wanted to buy. She emailed me back saying she still has them, but when I tried to setup a time to meet, she has yet to email me back. I really want these books! I emailed her from another email address last night so hopefully she will respond. (She still hasn’t!) If she does, Matt, I hope you will get them for me.
Please, please, please – with a cherry on top!
Wanna see my 2 best buys from yesterday?
He he he!
I have nothing else to blog about so I’ll show you them.
I am loving this pumpkin I bought for $8.16 from Hobby Lobby (75% off).
Check out the swirls! I could have got a spotted one, but this one is much cuter - more me!
Normally, I am too cheap to spend that much money on a holiday decoration, but I couldn’t take my eyes off of it in the store.
I HAD TO HAVE IT!
Besides, it is more then a holiday decoration – it a seasonal decoration. I’ll get use out of this August through November. Even longer this year since I plan on displaying it proudly on my dresser.
While in Hobby Lobby I saw all sorts of neat craft ideas. I need to make a list of the things I want to make and get busy making them. I already have an idea for my old Scrabble game - I will have to find one more at Goodwill or a yardsale.
I also need a craft room one day so I c. an have a big table! Of course, my kitchen table works great for now.
These are my new shoes from Sears… Reg. $70 – I paid $30
