It’s that time of year, yard sale season. I swear I go into some sort of depression when the weather gets cooler and people stop having sales. So these summer months I am going to take full advantage of every Saturday morning that I can get out there and find some treasures. I don’t feel bad about being away from the family, I am usually gone and back by the time they are done eating breakfast. This past weekend I left the house at 6:30 and picked up the Nester and then meet up with Reeve. Reeve was hilarious, she is not normally a yard sale person and definitely not normally out and about at 6:30 on a Saturday morning.
But once she scored this old Judd’s CD, she was singing a different tune, literally!!! My friend Reeve has the most amazing beautiful voice. REALLY the most beautiful voice you will ever hear. When I hear her sing at church I cry every time. She sings in a band, plays guitar, and plays the drums (so jealous). It is sooo cool to hang out with someone who uses the word “gig” especially when my last concert was Hannah Montana, I mean Miley Cyrus. Nothing like rollin around in a mini van jammin the Judds early on a Saturday morning with a couple of dear friends. Made me smile. It really made me smile when we ran by McDonald’s for some good ole biscuits and gravy.
Nester, so encouraging and soooooooo inspiring. One of the best things about her is her sense of humor and her laugh. She cracks me up. My stomach and cheeks usually hurt from laughing so much when I am around her. She is one of those friends that you just can’t believe how much you have in common. I heart her.
She bought this foosball table for $5.00, her three boys were sooo excited. We hit a ton of sales but just didn’t find much. There have been times when I could barley fit one more thing in my car and there have been lots of times when I come home completely empty handed. Sometimes it is just fun getting out with a couple of friends and driving around. Kinda like in high school when you would go cruising….everyone did do that right?
|I did find this rubber framed mirror for $8.00. I had every intention of reselling it at Metrolina, however once I got it home I changed my mind.|
So how can two purchases totally change three spaces in my house?
This area between my living room and kitchen has always bothered me. It is an awkward space that I could never get to look right. I never bought anything especially for this space, so whatever I had laying around went here.
