Friday night after work I decided to make some really poor life choices.
Saturday we slept in until 11am. By the time we dragged our butts out of bed, we decided it was high time we head over to Kohl's to take advantage of some sales, and buy some of our unpurchased wedding registry items. We managed to buy 4 place settings of Fiesta, a new shower curtain, shower curtain liner, shower curtain hooks, and toothbrush holder, all for $140. I couldn't be contained, I was so excited.
Since we were on a roll, we opted to stop by the Thrift Store to see if they had any great deals for us. One of our favorite things is finding great furniture to restore, or random, interesting things. We found a really old set of flameless road-flares, and a vintage Craftsman push-mower. After looking them up online, we realized these things were worth some scrilla, so we hustled them over to the check-out. Since our friend owns a Vintage consignment shop, we knew that was going to be our very next stop. After lunch, that was. Cafe Rio, to be exact. Ammon really likes their Nachos, so now I'm assured that he will offer Cafe Rio as a lunch or dinner option at least once a week. It's a good thing.
When we got to our friend Viv's shop, she assured us that the things we had were ultra-cool, and we got down to business setting prices. I also looked through some embroidery iron-on patterns, because I'm just that edgy. Before we left, there was already an inquiry about the push-mower. Score. I went home after that, and Ammon went to the garage to work on a laundry hamper he is currently building.
That night, I got to chat with Alyx. She is the best new mom in the whole entire world, it is official.
Aren't they adorable??? I just love it. She is teaching her daughter the importance of bathroom selfies and spreading the social media love from a very young age.
On Sunday we slept in again. I don't know what my problem is, but lately I have not been satisfied with any less that 10 hours of sleep a night on the weekends. While it makes me feel kind of lazy, it's also a nice change of pace from the typical weekend. We went to Home Depot for hot dogs...
And then I found $5.
That's a lie. But it made the story better?
Anyway, I'm done now. That was our weekend. I can tell you are totally enthralled, right???
