I love cheap things.
For some reason I just like things better if I know they didn't cost very much.
Almost every day I find myself adding up how much my outfit cost.

Like today...
jeans - $6 D.I.
shoes - $3 Goodwill
shirt - can't remember for the life of me and it's driving me crazy
earrings - free from my great grandma when she passed away

Anyway, the point is I love to find a deal. So imagine my joy today when I finally made it to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. A thrift store for home improvement!

I am now the proud owner of this almost full gallon bucket of beautiful paint in just the color I'd been looking for. And it only set me back $7. I was giddy through the whole store!

Oh and I also found scout shirts for Li and me at D.I. We saved $40 over buying them at the scout store!

Happy day!!

Way to go! What color was the paint? Are you and Li in scouts, or just really like to dress like them?

Man, I've missed a lot! Congrats on finishing the BOM last month, you are are inspriation and I've felt guilty that I didn't do it.
Carter is such a cutie. Gardening is so fun with kids- the girls just love to "help"- usually just getting really really dirty.
How did the Triatholon go? Also, how did the white chocolate soup go? Also, those mouse trap note things look cool- very creative, lets see a pic of yours when finished :)
Anyway- glad that you guys are doing so well. Take care!!
