I love a bargain!… and other random stuff…

Yesterday, I took Ashley to a local thrift store. They have a bunch of kids’ stuff, as well as jewelry, collectibles, and other junk treasures.

We made out like bandits! I got Ashley 3 new skirts, 2 pairs of pants (both new with tags – and each $2!!), 4 tops, a top for Lucy, a Spiderman outfit for Parker (that I must remember to take a picture of for you. It’s SO cute!), and a Little Mermaid Barbie Doll (new in the box) as a Christmas present for Lucy. We got all that, and spent less than $30. It was awesome! I need to go back there before Christmas!

In other news, Ashley left us. For an entire week! I don’t know what I’m going to do without her. She is such a help around the house. She’s off with our Associate Pastor and his family in South Georgia. They’re going to take her horseback riding, to the ocean, and a bunch of other stuff, so I’m certain she’s in heaven… especially since she doesn’t have to deal with 2 little boys and a little girl driving her up the wall! She left last night and she’ll be back on Saturday. This week is going to feel like an eternity.

AND, I got to go back to church today! YIPPEE!!!!!!! Parker is 30 days old, so he’s officially allowed “out and about.” It was just SO nice to be back at church. I even taught my Sunday School class. I’ve missed it so much.

Ok, I think that’s all for now. Enjoy your Sunday!

    I am a huge thrift store shopper. If you go to the right places around here you can get great stuff for next to nothing.

    Me, too. Check to see if there’s a “Value Village” in your area. They are extremely cheap.
