Dumspter Diving Report #8

So we had another great night out. I would have to say that the best thing I found was a dual sided standing make-up mirror at BB&B. I also found a total intact paint and brush set at Micheal's that came in its own wooden case...very mice. We also found a set of 400 thread count white cotton sheets still in plastic and a set of gorgeous black sheers as well. Both of these came from BB&B as well. There was a lot of little odds and ends this week at Micheal's. I think they must of had a cake decorating demo going on over the weekend because we came across several different tools along with unopened tubes of frosting and food coloring. Oh and I almost forgot that at BB&B we found a brand new rice cooker. Now I'm not real huge on rice but hey it was free and who am I to turn down something that nice which just happened to be sitting waiting for little ole me. Until 'til next time....

Dumpster Diving Report #7

Ashley and I went out again last night which turned out to be a bust. For starters it had been raining all day so anything we would have found would of been soaked. Our two fav places didn't have a single thing at them. I was somewhat bummed by this but at the same time I know that this is how the game goes with dumpster diving. Some days you can find a mountain of stuff and others you find very little or nothing at all. Oh well is what I say. We at least got a break away from the house. Thinking of going back out again either tomorrow or Sunday night but that remains to be seen.

The Hubby's Birthday

Today my wonderful, sweet, intelligent, very handsome hubby turned 33. I started off his day with pancakes, sausage and coffee served to him in bed this morning. This afternoon we went to see The Lorax with the kids along with my sister, her hubby, and 2 of her kids. When we got home I made him an awesome dinner of fried chicken, greens, macaroni cheese, and potato salad. To top it all off I made him an amazing red velvet cake that was melt in your mouth good. I'm thinking that all in all it was a pretty damn good birthday for him. He sure seemed to have a lot of smiles on his face today. Does my heart good to do things that are special for him.

Dumpster Diving Report #6

Ashley and I went out again last night to have some girl time and see what we could find. One of the best things we came across was a teak bathtub caddy that goes across the tub. It's super cool. There is a place of a candle, a book holder, place for your soap and other things as well. I was really excited to find this because it was something that I've been wanting. The best part was that it was brand new in the box, there was nothing at all wrong with it. Besides that we found a shower caddy, some Easter stuffed animals (which will come in handy), tons of ribbons, a bunch of brand new socks, and a few other misc. things. As always we had a fun trip out together. Thinking we may go out again tonight....but we'll see.

Family Reading Night At School

At my boy's school tonight they had a family reading night. There were different "stations" for each grade. One of the coolest things they had there was a "fire" going to read spooky stories as we all ate s'mores. We also got the chance to play sight word bingo with the kindergarteners. I actually won this this made me smile. Through it all I do have to say that the kids were pretty well behaved, especially for there being 9 of them and only 2 of us. I think I had a momentary lapse of sanity when I made the decision to go. But everything ended up turning out good. There was a ton of pizza, cookies and juice afterwards which made me happy because I didn't have to cook and the kids happy since what kid doesn't love pizza. All in all in was a pretty good night I do have to admit. To add to this all my bff and I gave our hubby's the night off and let them go out to see a movie...hope they don't get too used to that sort of thing happening, lol.
