Some Re-arrangement

From One Bean dot comToday was quite a day! We woke up with an agenda: to re-arrange my dining room and create more "hiding space" for my (ahem!) few (maybe more) (ahem!) dinnerware collection.

Then, we went to Tuesday Morning today for their B1Clearance, get 2nd Clearance 50% off trying to see if I can find something for the upcoming Mother's Day Potluck Brunch I'm hosting for the moms I know around our building. And would you believe it? I didn't find anything! Nothing! I am shocked myself! Wow! Nothing!

After, we went to Kohl's and what happened there? All of the pieces that I've been watching out for (that turned out perfect for my brunch) were on clearance for either 80% or 90% OFF!!! Hooray!!!

While we were at the end of our shopping trip, I noticed this other clearance shelf had some new items on it. I quickly went over there but not looking like I was going to pick up anything until I saw that it was the same items I've been watching for over 6 months now! Anyway, on approach to mentioned shelf, another lady buzzed around three times and didn't pick up anything. Well, after I got over my shock of seeing these items (after 6 full months of waiting) for 80% off, I quickly grabbed the ones I wanted. Well... when I started doing that, the lady quickly came back and started grabbing some of them! My ammo, I had four children with me so I was grabbing them quicker than she is since I had four hands taking away my picks and stashing them into the cart! I think the lady felt bummed out, but she waited too long. They were to be mine, today, after 6 long months of salivating, hoping, saving, hoping, salivating... oh, you get it. Sorry.

How was your Saturday?

I had L-Infinity's boyfriend, Daniel to also help us out but it turned out that I could have done it all myself. I love how it's looking but it's not done yet so I'll do a show and tell later one. Oh well... Anyway, post again tomorrow. I'm sleepy now...

Can't wait to see!

And, as always, jealous of your ability to get what you want on clearance!

I am glad you find the things that you want and make you happy. I think about you every time we say the blessing on the food. I remember you saying you have such a high respect for your food on the table. I am grateful everyday for each dinner meal we have. Thank you for that.
