Since it was the end of the month, I worked all day Friday and had a routine doctor's appointment. So it was not a fabulous day. Friday evening a friend and I went to Zumba, only to learn it has been canceled because the instructor was out of town :( So we walked on the pier a little (class is held in a community center on the water). Then when we came home DH went with me and the kiddos on a bike ride. Ernie ran beside the bike on a leash for the first time and did really well! Then we went to Walmart to grocery shop and watched part of a movie.
We abandoned our plans to sleep in in favor of two neighborhood yard sales. I made out big at one of them. I just love it when you find someone who is getting rid of fashionable clothes in your size! I got 4 skirts, 3 tops and a scarf for $12. I am getting more fierce with the bargaining. Especially with clothes since I don't get a chance to try them on and don't know if they will fit or look good. The lady wanted $2 a piece for the skirts and when I told the hubby to please put them back and I would just take the shirts, she came down to $1.50.
Anyway, this is what I ended up with:
|Skirt, $1.50, Gap|
|Practicing Shannon's photo tips, for fun. (Still on the skirt is from Friday)|
|Ahhhh! LOVE this scarf. For coming cold season yet far off. American Eagle|
|$1.50 each, both Gap|
|Tweed pencil skirt and khaki pants, still Gap|
|White cardi, Mossimo, Blue pinstripe shirt, Gap|
Then we did some house chores since company was coming Sunday. Went to a co-worker's graduation (WTG Gwen, Master of Social Work!) ate early lunch at The Drizzle BBQ (weird name, great sauce) watched the rest of our movie, cleaned and cooked for like 2 hours. I was dead on my feet in the kitchen til about midnight. DH was my wonderful assistant.
We SLEPT! I think we finally got out of the bed about 10:30, after being awake for quite a bit.
We bummed around the house, cleaned more, took the dogs for another bike ride where I got stung by some awful bug on my knee and it burned like fire and I yelped and tried to keep control of my bike and it swelled up and is still itching today, took a shower, then had company.
It was so nice to have friends over. We had yummy food: homemade salsa and guacamole, chips, jambalaya, bread and orange pineapple cake (or pea pickin' cake as my family calls it). Then we played a round of Last Word and had lots of great conversation.
It was a good one!
