The morning started off with a delicious run to Dunkin Donuts. I'm a sucker for DD's coffee! YUMMY!! Plus the kids love the donuts....
After teaching some piano and voice lessons in the morning, I took the kids outside for some fun Memorial Day flag painting projects. I can't claim ownership of this idea, though. Stole it straight out of one of those parenting type magazines. Ava thought it was so fun! I mean, what could be more fun than getting paint all over your hands AND feet?
Here's Ava's finished flag project! Happy Memorial Day!!
After the projects were finished, my girl and I hit the road to do a little garage sale-ing. I'm a sucker for a good garage sale. But I'm really cheap. There, I said it. I go out with only a few dollars and truly expect to come home with treasures. Makes you want to laugh, huh?
Well, it was already late in the day, so things didn't start off GREAT. But wait! We came to our last stop and, no joke, the lady was GIVING her stuff away. What I'll do with some of it, who knows. And I'm not so sure the hubs will ever let me go out again! Ah, I love the sale!!
Here's what I got:
Stop #1: 1 boy shorts, 1 boy shirt $1.00
Stop #2: pasta canister (needs some cleaning) $ .50
Stop #3: Cute white table (needs work) FREE
Matted frame FREE
5 hangers FREE
Spray/fan H20 bottle FREE
I mean, seriously, $1.50 for all that! Come on!! The table will need to be refinished AND I really have no idea where it'll go. But it's SO cute! Any who knows where the frames and mirrors will go....a "someday" project I'm certain! SCORE!!!
