Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jigg!

Our wonderful week is over. Not only did I get to have my sister here to celebrate my birthday with me, but my mom surprised me by coming, too!!! It was such a wonderful surprise. We had a blast. Of course our week comprised mostly of shopping...seriously though, we hit my fabulous thrift-store twice (you know it is fabulous when you can spend $30 on bags of clothes priced $2 and under-I literally would have spent over a hundred dollars on the things I found this week) and took a trip to Tanger Outlet for birthday shopping. My mom got me a pair of darling black wedge sandals and my sister got me a pair of fabulous neutral sandals. It was sooo fun! I haven't had new shoes for a while! My sister-in-law sent me some cute CAbi clothes, one of which is a beautiful tunic top. I simply love it! Kit and I got Green Pans from my mother-in-law. The list goes on...I won't keep listing, or I'll feel way too spoiled! It truly was a wonderful birthday.

It is always hard to say good-bye, but this was not as hard as other times. I was able to say good-bye knowing the boys and I would be heading to Oklahoma next month for Mack's graduation. Hooray! Four weeks will simply fly by!

It is great having Kit home. He was supposed to be home yesterday evening, but due to delays, he arrived home this morning. The boys and I always miss him when he's gone. He came home bearing gifts--Astronaut ice cream and fruit for the boys. They have been pretending to be in space all morning. The surprises Kit brings home are always a fun treat.

We're thankful everyone made it home safely! I love you all!!!

Happy Birthday Liberty! It sounds like you had a great time with your mom and sisters. Two questions: what is CAbi? What are the green pans?

I'm glad you had such a nice visit with your family. What a nice added surprise with your mom showing up! I just love the thrift store, actually pretty much everything that I wear comes from there. I love getting the great deals!

Jill- Green pans are these non-stick pans (w/out teflon).They are sold on HSN and are absolutely amazing! Kit did the research and fell in love with them. CAbi clothes are designer clothes that are sold via distributers (my SIL)at home shows(Carol Anderson by invitation).

Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday... Happy Birthday! It's great to be able to spend time with family. I also love the feeling of money saved, although I'm not sure husbands fully appreciate the phrase, "Guess how much money I saved today?"

I'm so jealous! I want to come out and save lots of money at your super-duper thrift store! I'd love to come visit you, but instead it seems your always coming here. We might no have the beach and tanger outlets, but at least we all have seperate houses;) Love ya!

Happy Belated birthday. You know I am super jealous that you keep getting to spend so much time with your family. But it sounds like you had a great time. You'll have to tell me how you like the green pans. I've seen those things on HSN several times and wondered if they really live up to the hype.
