Friends = Fun!

admittedly I was a bit of a loaner in high school. It was mostly self-inflected since my boyfriend went to a different school and hated all my friends. I always chose him over friends. FAIL!

So sometimes I’m surprised at how much friends really are and that people do want to hang out with me (besides my husband).

Sunday we hung out with friends at  graduation open house party and then we moved across town to a bonfire. Want to have a ginormous fire? Burn kitchen cabinets! Our friends are getting their kitchen redone, so they burned all the old stuff.

Bye-bye cabinet!

Today friend fun continued with a sweaty 4 mile hike on the Cadillac Pathway and a fun dinner at Da Dawg House. I indulged in a kielbasa with sauerkraut and Brent and I split an apple dumpling for dessert. It was so good and a perfect finish to a great day!

Other weekend happenings included:

– Garage Sale shopping with my mom (I scored 2 tennis rackets for $1.25!!)

– Shopping with my sister Emily. At a craft sale I got 7 hair flowers, a Michigan Christmas ornament and kettle corn. At the Shoe Dept. I got a pair of heels and a pair of flats for Hannah’s wedding and Brent a pair of sneakers.

– Strive for Stride 5k, which was our season finale Girls on Track 5k! Full Girls on Track/Girls on the Run recap coming this week.

– Cleaning the house!

– HOT and HUMID weather…yay!


Super Savings!

I love a deal, but really, who doesn’t? Do you or your friends really want to pay more for something? Probably not!

Today I had the displeasure of going to Walmart. I’ve been putting off this trip for over a month. I had to return one of the gifts I got for Brent and just didn’t want to do it. I finally got the courage and headed to my least favorite store on my lunch break.

After a relatively painless return, I decided to wander through the multiple clearance aisles to kill the rest of my lunch break. There was plenty of crap but amongst it all, I found a potential treasure!

Danskin dry fit tank tops marked down to $1!!! That is correct, ONE DOLLAR!! I scooped up 3 and hurried on  my happy way. I’m not counting on the best quality or sweat wicking abilities, but for $1, I can live with it!
