Cars and money
I had to take my car in the other day for a recall. I put it off and decided now was a good time. Had a friend meet me for coffee and breakfast, and then a little shopping. Well it was so early ... First pick to shop was Ikea ... Closed ... Container Store was on my short list ... Closed. Okay ... Target is open. An hour and a half later, my "free" recall service cost me $$$$$ at Target! I have been really good lately about not spending money, but I broke the damn about a week ago, and I can't seem to stop!
I splurged at T and got a new quilt and pillow shams; haven't replaced mine for at least 5 years. I wanted something neutral that I could change the look of with my own different quilts, but dark because Sophie always gets up there and rolls around!
I always send a Halloween box to the kids. Daughter is in college, so her box had to be super fun. I've started shopping already because I found if you wait too long, the Halloween stuff disappears fast. I found these super cute melamine dishes at T and knew she would love this little vignette:
On my separate trip with hubby, I scored on the dollar bins up front and filled in her box with some other fun goodies! I think I get as excited as she does! It is more fun to send a box to a girl than a guy!
Son and fiancé will also get a box, but there's will be easier since they are working parents! I did find a sweet outfit for Kylee ...
