Summer is almost over everyone! I can’t believe the cold weather and land of goose pimples is approaching. I was born in Phoenix……you know, the city where people say “Snow?! What is this thing….this SNOW you speak of?” Now snow is good for two things 1) snowboarding 2) making Christmas WHITE! But since snow comes with cold, it’s not one of my favorite things in the world.
Ah ok I am done with my rant about the cold, back to our weekend. We first went to Goodwill. Thank God for Goodwill. Let’s just say that kids don’t take the best care of their clothing, so places like Goodwill really make sense. We went there to get some uniforms this year and we made out great. Plus Audrey got a little pony ride out of it.
I have a hard time paying $11.99 for something that will be worn for 8 months when I can pay $2.99. I bought Audrey a whole stash of clothing from there, and we are set for while. I was never a “Thrift Store” kind of girl, lets face it. When Tom and I met he was in a thrift store at least once a week, that is pretty overkill even in my present state of thrift store loving. He would want to go to Goodwill and I would cringe, but after a while I began to look forward to it. Maternity clothes are crazy expensive and I refused to pay $75 for a tank top! But at Goodwill I bought a whole wardrobe for pregnancy for around $60. And now I have a box of maternity clothes in my basement for my next belly. For that I love Goodwill!
We stopped at Ross; another great store for inexpensive, quality items. We just bought a few more things there that we didn’t find at the GW. At Wal-Mart we bought lots of yummy things to pack in their lunch boxes. They would much rather we pack cake and ice cream every day but that is NOT going to happen. So to the best of our ability, keeping things healthy and tasty, we gathered everything we needed there.
After all our shopping we stopped at the park to see what festival was going on. It happened to be very windy and quite chilly so we didn’t stay too long. It was kind of pathetic for a festival though. I think there were 5 tents and a few tables set up….very disappointing.
We ended the day with a nice bath, IN THE SINK! This sink is the best tub a mom could ask for. Growing up my family never put babies in bathtubs, just sinks. I have pictures of my younger cousins and little sister all stuffed into a sink together. It just makes sense to me, and it works for us.
Anyways that was our Saturday. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. And there are even LESS hours when winter arrives. Enjoy the last few months of summer!
