Crazy Busy Weekend

Don't forget to visit Southern Hospitality for their Thrifty Treasure's Monday party.

Southern Hospitality

So far this weekend I have not made it to Kroger's Mega Sale. Hopefully, this week sometime I will finally make it there. Plus out of all the garage sales they had this weekend, unfortunately, I only made it to one. DH and the kiddos have had me crazy, busy. Tonight it's supposed to get cold again. I guess this is what they call the Easter Snap. However, Rocky (my little Chihuahua) and Socks (my sweet kitty) have keeping warm under control.



Isn't that just the cutest thing how they snuggle together like that.

Yesterday, I went into a little town not far from us to pick up milk and stuff at WalMart. While there I did come across one deal - three bags of cat food marked down to $2 a bag on clearance and minus $1 off coupons I snagged three bags for $3.



On the way home I saw something. Oh, my - BALLOONS!!! What could it be? BALLOONS attached to a white sign that said GARAGE SALE!! Woohoo. Happy dance!!! What's better? A garage sale at a Pentecostal church. Since we're Pentecostal also I'm always looking for denim skirts for me and DD. When I drove up they had a sign on the door that said "All clothes 1/2 off Friday." That made me even more excited but then I got to thinking about it being the last day of the sale and it was late in the afternoon. What were the chances of finding anything at all. Well, as luck would have it I found just what I was looking for and for a whole $2.65 I got all these.





Then this morning it was up and off to the local fair. DH and I are so tired about now but the kids had a blast as you can see.




Until next time . . .

I love it when the cats curl up together and in a basket...photo op!
Glad you got some good buys this weekend.

LOL - I wish my two kitties got along that good - they like to growl at each other instead. Rocky is my little Chihuahua and Socks is very protective over him, keeping him warm and such.

Even though you and the hubs were tired, your kids had a great time, courtesy of two generous parentals! You were lucky finding what you were looking for. Every time I go out looking for something specific, I can never find it. I like those special times that I just run into things and I can then do the happy dance. LOL Thanks for stopping by.

Looks like you scored too. Cute little skirts.

$2.65...what a deal! My daughter used to have a pair of jeans just like the skirt in about the third pic down (with the different strips of fabric). They were so cute on her...wish they still fit her!

Lynda @ SportsMadGirl said...

You scored some great finds! I can't believe you were able to get all those clothes for $2.65. I must admit, I LOVE coupons so that cat food deal speaks to me :) I've been rocking my coupons lately.

Thanks for the visit. Come by any time.

Carmen said...

Great deal on the clothes! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. :)

The kitty cats look so cute in that basket, and the garage sale score for kids clothes very cool. The cat food deal gotta love that one to! Hugs, Diane

Merrie said...

Great snag on the skirts. I have been seeing them more and more lately around here too.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Score on the pet food!! Thanks for the visit. :)

Alma said...

Awww, I just love that first photo! So sweet! I can't believe your chihuahua actually loves your cat. My chi is NOT nice. :(
