Saturday, Kristin came up and we (Kristin, Ava, and I) hit some yard sales. We found a few things, but nothing spectacular. So, we decided to hit up the clearance sale at her work - Touch of Class.
I found SEVERAL steals!
First, I found these fabulous candle holders...that match my table and buffet!
They are the perfect addition to the window above my sink. And the best part..they were marked down from $89.99 to $17.99.
Then, I found these tiles to hang in the tray ceiling in my kitchen.
I've been wanting something to hang in that area for a long time, but couldn't ever find anything I liked. These are perfect, and were marked down from $55.00 to $7.99.
Then I saw it...the perfect painting for my living....
We've been looking for a painting for our living room for awhile but I'm cheap and I never wanted to spend mega bucks for a painting, so when I saw this was marked down $110 I almost did a happy dance right in the middle of the store.
Why are you all laughing?
I'm not even kidding!!!
Ok....maybe I am.
But I did it in my mind.
I called Chris to tell him about my candle holder finds, and the painting to see if he thought I should buy it.
Never mind the painting, sweetie, make sure you get those candle holders because you KNOW how much I LOVE candle holders.
Ok, smart-aleck! lol
Then as I was walking to the check out I spotted the perfect colored vases for my sister's new apartment. I walked closer to get a picture and low and behold, the have butterflies imprinted into them. Now, I know these vases are destined to be my sisters. :)
I sent her a picture, and of course she loved them.
Because they need new felt pads on the bottoms, they were marked down from $26/vase to $4.99. Can you believe that???
On the way home, Kristin and I decided to check out the ReStore store. It's miscellaneous things people have donated, and all the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity.
On my other blog, we've decided to start a monthly book club.
Needless to say, someone had donated a HUGE stack of a book called Delta Belles, and the inscription sounded perfect for a book in this book club. I bought ten copies!!! Nine of us in the book club, and one for our give-away book. The best part is that the money will go to a good cause. You just can't beat that!
When we got home, I checked the mail, and the APPROVAL from my insurance company stating they will cover my surgery at our in-network fee was in the mail.
I got home and made Chris and the kids BBQ cups with some of the left-over roast. So easy, and a big hit.
Sunday, we went to church and I started feeling pretty tired afterwards. Maybe it's my body's way of saying I need to slow down.
I slept almost all afternoon, last night, and have still been feeling very tired and weak today.
So, if you could, send up some extra prayers for that.
I have several pre-op appointments and blood work this week.
The countdown is on for surgery now!
ps) I can't get enough of this song!
