Yesterday was one of my rare Saturday mornings off work. So, I thought I would take advantage of the free time and do a little bargain shopping.
After eating breakfast with Dan,
I pulled on some sweatpants and braved the Dollar Store and Big Lots. After 3 hours of wandering around and not really knowing what I was doing (those aisles don't really have a rhyme or reason), I came home. I don't know if I would call it successful but here are a few things that happened:
- I picked up a candle to smell it and the person before me didn't secure the lid, which fell to the ground and shattered around my feet. After confirming that no one saw me, I went to the front of the store to tell the manager that there was glass on the floor. Hehehe. I did make it home with a $3 candle.
- Dan needed deodorant, but he told me to make sure it was the kind with anti-perspirant. I was so worried about looking for it that what I brought home was just anti-perspirant, with no deodorant. I wonder how that will work.
- I was excited to find a pretty good deal on powder Tide. However, when I was bragging to Dan about it he told me our washing machine doesn't take powder detergent. Fail.
I am starting to think that paying the few extra dollars at Target may have been worth it.
Dan went to go shoot guns with his friends. No words.
I was slightly worried about him wearing camo while just shooting guns, because I am pretty sure he would want his friends to see him. Good thing for the hat.
I spent the afternoon catching up on The Big Bang Theory, putting out my fall decorations,
and watching the rain fall down.
My friends came over for a night cap and some s'mores.
However, Sarah brought over her mom Charlotte's famous jack-o-latern cookies. Sugar cookies with some spices in them and the icing is orange flavored. YUM.
You would have to be crazy to pick a s'more over one of these babies. Charlotte has been making them since I can remember, and they have always been one of my favorite things about Fall.
Charlotte also sent me this super cute towel - now my Fall decorations are complete. Thanks Charlotte!
We spent the night chatting, watching football and then baseball, and setting up a blog for Liz.
It isn't quite ready, but when she posts her first post I will be sure to let you know - believe me, you wouldn't want to miss out!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
