What a weekend and how it goes so fast!
On Saturday I spent most of my day in Hagerstown shopping for things I needed for a bridal shower I am throwing for a close friend of mine.
Side note: Stay tuned on my other blog for all the fabulous decorations and things I am doing!
While there, I stopped by Michaels (craft store) for some items. I saw that their Christmas trees were down from $299.99 to $59.99. I have been watching them since after Christmas because our artificial one was shot. They have been $99.99 for the LONGEST time!
I called Hubby and made him come in with the kids and check it out while I finished shopping. He came in and we were all excited about the $60 deal on a 7 1/2 foot prelit tree!
Another customer said, "I just talked to the manager and if you ask to talk to him you could the same deal as I did. They are selling it to me for $40."
So, Hubby asked to talk to the manager about the trees.
The manager sent a girl out and said we could have the trees for $20!!!!
We of course bought 2 of them. We would have gotten more but we had no room for them!
Now I will have a tree for me and a tree for the kids to decorate! I can't even believe we got such a deal! They just wanted to get rid of them. It pays to be in the right place at the right time!
Now today I weighed in this morning because I officially started my exercising and eating healthy. Thank goodness b/c I have seen a HUGE difference.
My weigh in this morning was:
DOWN 2 LBS!!!! and the best part is I dropped a pant's size!!! I am so excited!! Plus I can make it up all the stairs in my house without running out of breath! This is a big change for me over the last couple months. I thought for sure I dropped more weight by the way my belly has flattened, however I guess I am getting some muscle!
Now I am off to finish the rest of my day.
I am going to go get groceries. Thanks to my SmartShopper from my mom...it has simplified my life.
I am going to do the rest of the laundry and get it put away for the week.
And I am going to carpet clean my living room. We are slowly saving to get rid of the carpet on our main floor. I can't stand it anymore!! Where does the dirt come from??
I am also fixing the curtain rod over the sliding glass door. It has been falling down for a couple months now and I have been waiting for it to fix itself. lol.
I gotta exercise today too. Jillian and I are almost ready to move onto the second workout. We are busting a move!
Have a great day!
