It Was a Good Day..

Thursday was a good day. Well, except for work, but I'll just leave that *little* detail out (grrr..coworkers..). After escaping the day job, I decided my mood needed a pick-me-up. Cue Shopping. :)

However, with the pending house search & trying to save every penny, I decided to be a good little wifey & go thrift shopping vs. my fave stores. And boy, am I glad I did! I parused the housewares looking for fun pieces to add to my kictchen or decorate with & this is what I found:
And not just one, but two!These are going to look just fabulous with some fresh fruit in them! Only problem is.. In my head they look much more fabulous in a new kitchen! ;)
I also picked up one more thing (but I couldn't leave my favorites out of the shot!). I think I'll find some pretty things to display in it for now, and then arrange Christmas bulbs in it for the holidays!

I also found a GORGEOUS Mori Lee gown! Seriously, I don't know who gave that thing away, but I scooped it up for $5! I'm hoping it will fit one of my sisters for their prom, but if not, it's going on Ebay for some serious profit!

Other reasons Thursday was good:
  • Got reassurance that I'm NOT pregnant. (Freaking out every time AF is late EVERY month or when I'm feeling sick in the mornings is getting old. I need to just trust the pill & chill..tee hee..)
  • I had a recipe-success! Made yummy Satay Chicken Skewers and Roasted Potatoes.. will share later, I promise!
  • Menards (To those not in the midwest, it's similar to Lowe's & Home Depot). For the second time Hubby and I went there just for fun. Yes, we just walk around and plan. What we're going to use for what when we FINALLY get a house. From paint colors to trim to girl-tastic pink tools.. we plan it all. And we're usually there for at least a good hour and a half. You know it's bad when you get to the register with your $10 purchase and the clerk says "Didn't I see your earlier?" (We can't help it if she was the only register open & we needed a drink & some snacks for our browsing adventure!)
Anyway, thank you all for taking part in the giveaway! If you haven't gotten to it yet, you still have til Sunday night! There's a link at the top right hand corner of the blog for easy access! Happy Friday, and have a fabulous weekend!

[Endnote: No word on the house yet! Grrr...]

"trust the pill and chill" I seriously lol-ed! Too cute!

I think that I actually have one of those bowls you got. It was my great grandmother's I think. Yours are in better shape though! They would look really good with fruit or something - I'll have to find mine!
