My teenager and I got up early on Thursday and headed out before 8am to find some treasures at garage sales. How convenient was it that citywide garage sales were taking place in our little hometown!?! We had a blast. Emma loves garage sales and was on the lookout for a couch for her room. We scored a really cute one for $10. I’ll show it to you later this week.
I found a carload of great stuff and also a truckload of furniture I had my hubby pick up in his truck. His truck is years and years old and doesn’t run great but it does the job for picking up my great finds 😀
At almost noon we finally returned home for some food. My 8 year old met me at the car wondering if I’d brought her a root beer like I said I would. I’d forgot! So she and I hopped in the car and hustled to Dollar General where she grabbed her root beer, one for her Sis, a box of mac-n-cheese and a bottle of juice for Emma. Then we had to stop at some garage sales Emma and I hadn’t been to yet! Becca loves garage sales too – she found some little things at a couple of them and each time she got something we headed to the car with her giggling away and saying how much she loved garage sales! I think I’m passing my addiction for the hunt on to my girls!
Emma and I went to a few more sales after Travis and I picked up all the big stuff I bought – a desk, rocker, chair and Emma’s couch. I’ll show it all to you soon – I did take pics of all of it! Then Emma and I headed to her voice lessons. After voice lessons, Travis took Emma to my Mom’s so they could get ready for the party they had planned for me on Friday night.
I took the younger two to their gymnastics lessons, and then I worked on getting things together for my own yard sale the next day. Travis had been talking about having a garage sale on the weekend. I didn’t want tied to one since my sister was planning to be here. Since she didn’t make it I decided I could help him with it. HA! I ended up doing all the work and selling my stuff! I did pretty well for a last minute, thrown together, one day sale. I decided one day was enough and packed up the leftovers Friday afternoon.
Friday evening we went to my Mom’s for my party. I loved what my Mom and Teenager came up with! All the pics were so fun and the food and cake was pretty and yummy. Tator Tot casserole has been a fav of mine ever since I was a little girl. Comfort food at its finest! Broccoli/Cauliflower salad, bran muffins, cake and ice cream. Yum Yum.
Saturday morning I took all three of my girls out to garage sales. They all took their money and we all found a few more treasures The rest of the day we worked in the yard – got mulch all spread and it looks about as good as it can around here for now 😀
It was a good 40th. Nothing at all to get worked up about. It’s just a number anyway right?!
