Let me start this off by saying, I’m pretty sure I’m spoiled out of my mind.
Firstly, my husband let me sleep in this morning and took care of A.
Secondly, they went to Starbuck’s and brought me back my favorite drink.
Thirdly, my husband happily tagged along throughout the neighborhood on a freezing morning to peruse our city wide garage sales.
Yeah. Totally spoiled.
We only walked through our neighborhood, but I think we had some success!
We scored A’s bike($3), a bread machine($2), 3 Winnie the Pooh characters(75c), A Sandra Boynton book(25c), and a metal bucket(50c).
The bike will need some jerry rigging. It doesn’t steer super, but A loved riding it down our driveway, so I think it’s already worth the $3. She also can’t reach the pedals yet, so what’s it matter anyway? Also funny, the little girl who owned the bike pulled a Cameron and said after I had already purchased it, “I DON”T KNOW HOW YOU’RE GOING TO GET THAT WHEEL FIXED!” I just laughed and said, I’m pretty sure we’ll make it work.
The bread machine was allegedly a homeowner’s elderly mothers that had never been used. Supposedly it works. It was a $2 risk we were willing to take.
And of course, the books, animals, and bucket were all fun things that were so cheap we couldn’t pass up. A already has a Winnie the Pooh and now she also has owl, gopher, and kanga too : )
Another thing worth noting are Abigail’s super awesome gloves. It was SO cold out and we discovered this morning that little miss doesn’t have any gloves or mittens that fit. So, she got to wear a pair of mine. Which she thought was hilariously awesome and so did most of the other garage salers.
*Okay, seriously? While I was updating this the hubs emptied the dishwasher and cleaned the shower.*
