Rain Rain Go Away........


Where did my sunny weather go??

We are stuck in a rainy rut. I hope it passes quickly because I’m dying to get outside. Hubby and I had a fantastic weekend of bargain hunting like we always do and stumbled on some great finds……

1. A cute wooden patio table set complete with chairs and an umbrella for a grand total of $50. I’m dying to set it up and put it to good use as soon as the sun greets us.

2. A small set of casual dinnerware that we picked up at Ikea for $15.

3. A beautiful new tablecloth for $5, found in the “As- Is” bin at Ikea originally $25, turns out it just needed to be washed.

4. A 19’’ LCD TV for the guestroom for $97, thank you my favorite place to shop

5. A 10x10 EZ-Up Sun shelter for $29 found on the clearance rack un-marked and no barcode. I negotiated the price with an associate at Meijer and ended up walking out with 3 of them for that price. We have been looking to buy one for our trip to Bonnaroo this June and they were all priced +$90 for one.

6. A cute pair of boots from the Cincinnati Outlet Mall for $10 originally $94.

7. A flag pole for the front yard and a flag to go with it for $8 found at Kohls.

8. A beautiful hanging planter for the front deck for $3


On top of all of this shop till you drop business, the hubby and I have been having lots of fun here at home. We busted out the the Wii games and challenged each other to an assortment of games; Bowling, Tennis, Baseball, and Golf. I forgot how fun it was to play on our little Wii, but my arm was quickly reminded how sore you can get from swinging that controller around. LOL

Tomorrow I’m prepared to do some spring cleaning and lots and lots of laundry is calling my name as well.

On the TTC journey, we are enjoying are relaxed approach to this cycle. We’re prepared for whatever the outcome is whether it be BFP or BFN.

If you are stopping by for ICLW, I thank you for your comments and you can find out more here and here.
