My girls and I went junking today. We hit 6 stores. We got some great junk. The purpose of the trip was to find some stuff to dress up for career day at school, but some side purchases are always fun, too.
I got this:
I just couldn't resist it. I like it. And it was never actually used. It has a couple of scars like it was kicking around in someone's garage for a while, but the original frame filler is still inside.$4.99. Oh yeah, baby!
Libby bought this basket:
She also got a new pencil pouch out of the clearance bin at Office Depot for $.75. She's a good bargain shopper.
Abigail also bought a cute little basket. Her big score of the day, though, was the little tubes of glitter paint. They were marked at $.29 each. She didn't have quite that much so she picked out 6 tubes (should have been $1.74 plus tax) and marched to the front and asked for a deal,. It helps to be 5. And cute. And bold. She got all 6 tubes for a dollar flat.
We came home and the boys suddenly had some "mystery stuff" to do, so the 4 of them took off in our car. The girls and I rode out bikes to Jack In The Box and had dinner. Since we biked 2 miles that sorta cancelled all those calories, right?
When we came home the "not twins" decided to play dress up. Aren't they cute? One is a munchkin. The other is a blackbird. Yeah, I can see that.
Oh, and by the way, Libby gets bragging rights today for finding this little car.My nephew has a collection of these Chevron cars- with a custom built shelf to house them. Most of them were bought by Aunt Kris. She keeps a print out of all the cars and crosses them off when she finds a new one. It's getting hard to find a car that he doesn't have- even for Kris, the thrift store queen. HA HA! Libby found one today!
And now, here I sit blogging away.
The girls are waiting for me to finish so I can go watch a movie with them. See you later.
Happy Mother's Day!
