This morning, I started out with VERY good intentions. I was going to teach all day, coach after teach, tutor after coach and clean after tutor. Well, I taught the same writing lesson to 133 freshmen, practice finished early because my team rocks and my tutoring kid canceled, and Rusty left on a 4:30 bus to coach an away game.
On my lunch break, I caught up on my Google Reader and saw this inspiring photo:
After practice ended, I decided to stop by a thrift store to see what deals I have been missing. Here's what ended up in my shopping basket:
I can't wait to get these frames sprayed in some fun color!!
All 4 frames totaled about $15.00.
2 little wire baskets at .99 cents each.
This great square basket was only .99 cents. I am going to fill it full of toiletries and put it under the sink in the guest bathroom.
This wire magazine rack was only $1.00 and will work perfectly in any room!
Then I stopped by the outlet malls and scored these shoes!!!!
The heels and wedges were on clearance for $6.99 with a buy one get one 50% off sale! The sandals were $2.99 a pair. Then I scored some $5.00 coupon card at the register, so who knows what they ended up costing.....dirt cheap!!!And then, just because I could....I bought this huge, flower clip. WHOA (Blossom reference).
But now I'm home. Alone. The weather is perfect for eating and movies. There are a million things I need to be doing and 2 million things I could be doing. The house is quiet. I was home before 7. And this is what I did....
My favorite oversized hoodie and Rusty's Navy boot camp sweats....
I wish I were lying, but I'm not! It's a dream come true! Cheese, crackers, chips and cookies. Confession: while I took this picture, I was cooking a stovetop Knorr's Pasta Side (college days!). Good news: I drank a Coke Zero with this feast. Bad news: I haven't been to the gym in 2 months, and I will probably eat a biscuit for breakfast. Confession #2: I put chocolate icing on the cookies I made to make them like the ones you buy in the mall.
I love it!
Did you know that this was an awesome Friday to send an awesome week? It was awesome because I turned 28. I went to the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain. My guest bedding I ordered came. I ordered a new necklace from Etsy. My team won their 1st competition. My kids were awesome at school. The new County Living magazine came. I cleaned my house during the week, so I can enjoy the weekend. I am going to dinner tomorrow night at a restaurant that the hubs had to make reservations for. It hit 67 degrees today. AND....I discovered gel nail polish! I lasts for 2 weeks without chipping!
Rusty, I know you will get this post on your EVO during the game. Please hurry home; I am tired of feeling single.
Why was your week awesome?!
