Oh garage sales,
sweet garage sales,
jackpot of treasures untold,
Let every cent,
that I have spent,
never cease to bring me joy.......
OK, maybe that's a tidge overkill. But it flowed.....like......buttah? Maybe I have an untapped gift for song writing? So my garage sale season has officially begun. Steve and the girls and I went down to the Cities yesterday to see the Twins/Tigers game. It was pouring rain, took forever to find parking, and we got a lil lost on our way home, but it was priceless to see Ella sitting on Steve's lap chanting "Let's go Tigers...
" We spent the night with my parents, had brunch with some friends (who think blogging is dumb and are too closed-minded to join facebook;), and then headed for home to make it to a dinner party tonight. But along the way, Steve spoke my other love language of quality time (he likes to call it "show-furring" me around to garage sales.) He voluntarily took the back roads so I could enjoy my first garage sale spree of the season. Mostly I got books......puzzle books, workbooks, school books, joke books.....perfect for making the ride home more palatable for the girls. But I also got a pair of nearly new ice skates for Addie next year ($2), a box full of various prepackaged art projects (.50), and several unused journals (.25 each). One of the journals had a raised picture of Cinderella and a gemstone that blinks all different colors when you press it. Ella was in heaven and asked about 14 times if she could really keep it. I also found a cute antique reproduction tin that I intended to fill with cookies and give as a hostess gift, but Ella got car sick literally 5 seconds before we pulled into our driveway:( Definitely worth a quarter!
