Saturday Shopping!!

I stayed up late last night just watching movies, TV and then reading. No husband to tell me to "turn off the lights, the TV is too loud." I guess you would say I did what I wanted too!! Finally I just said that I had enough and had to sleep. zzzzzz

I slept in also!! Our cat Simon kept trying to "meow" me awake but I can ignore that!! Finally he even gave up and went back to sleep on the foot of our bed!!

Eventually, quite ashamed of myself, I had to get up and get the morning going!! Slowly though!! I decided that I would go to the mall and get the gifts that I had to get before it was too late.

We are having our "farewell dinner" for our MOPS steering team this coming Tuesday night. We are really not wanting to give up our old steering team but we know that change is good. We will be saying good-bye to a great group of women who have done a wonderful job taking care of a bunch of great mothers over the past 5 years. I am one of the steering team (MOPS mentor mom) that will be stepping down. I have been praying about it and know it is time for me to move on. I was out looking for just that "perfect gift for my secret sister". I have always enjoyed that part of MOPS. We will reveal our sisters this Tuesday night. Usually I have an idea who has my name but I am blank this time.?????

I "just" had to go to AC Moore you know...ME and scrapbooking!! I got in there and found that they were having a sale.....OH!! SALE!! I found stickers at 40% off so I was having fun, fun and some more fun!! I stayed in there just a little too long and then and then........OHHHHH...I discovered a wonderful FIND!!! (Just hope my husband thinks so)....FLIP FLOP pictures!! I was standing there so enthralled in this wondrous find and I guess I must have just clapped my hands!! Let me first explain...they have their Halloween things up!!! To my right I saw a BIG---YES a BIG hairy BLACK spider coming crawling down the wall!! I did not scream...WHY I have no idea!! But I did move quick!! I guess it was set up that when you "CLAP YOUR HANDS" it comes running down the wall!! GREAT!! ME just silly me I clapped my hands!! It about scared me to death!! I got red all over and was very very HOT by the time I made it up front to pay for my purchases. I saw a friend as I was leaving. She gave me a hug and asked if I was having a HOT FLASH!! I said no but told her what had happened. She was a mess laughing about it!! WELL, I guess I made someone laugh today!! Someone is healthier because of me!!

I am back home now and hopefully not causing anyone any problems. I hope you are having a good day like me. I am praying that my hubby is having a MARVELOUS day at Promise Keepers and is meeting tons of new guys and just having a BLAST!! Relaxing and enjoying a day with other Christian men and putting his work problems FAR behind him!!

I am off to see everyone's sites now!! Take care...I am still working on my site so be patient.

Oh wow!!! You and me!!!! The word SALE just draws me into a store...any kind of store actually. Even V. Secret and I don't wear....well, I have no need for their product, but hey...the word sale plastered all over their windows is like a magnet for me. I'm there looking for fun bargains.

They actually have HALLOWEEN stuff out already? Dear me.

And I LOVE your new purchase. Where ya gonna hang 'em? By the computer? How cool is that.

Thanks for the visit dear friend. Happy Saturday to you.

Wow, what a buy...sorry about the spider! Bet you did turn red. It's kind of nice "doing your own thing" as long as it's not too long. Miss you.

Thanks for calling and telling me about the spider, then when I read about it on your blog it was even funnier. I was telling your Dad what happened and he just never did get it I think. Men do not have the imagination a woman has, now do they? Nice blog today, enjoyed it Love Mother

AWESOME! Those are darling flip flop pictures! I can SEE why you would clap! I would have clapped too! And as I was reading and before I even got to that part, I thought "oh, just like having hot flashes!" LOL! Your friend and I must think alike! hehehe... I'm so glad you're enjoying your day to yourself!

Oh, I'm sorry...I appreciate spider fears as my son is arachnophobic....but I couldn't help....laughing. Not at the spider, but at the visual of you spotting flipflop pictures and clapping your hands in glee....BooBoo does that!! She'll see something and get all giggly and always makes me laugh...cause she's's so random!! You've endeared yourself to me for life!
And yes, the flipflop pictures are perfect...and I like your new look too.
Have a great day.

What a fun day except for the spider...I love AC Moore...wish we had one here. I go when I'm in the south...just a great store. I'm remembering the wonderful sticker collection they have, and beads...etc. Your flip flop pictures are very fun...I can see why you would be excited to find them. They are smile makers..
