Shopping Finds

I hope that everyone had a good weekend. We certainly did, especially the extra day off on Monday.
Has anyone checked out the new blog Slimmed Down Preppies? It was started by Tammy of Pink Cupcakes and Tab and Hicktowndiva and it is for weight loss tips, support, and successes. I'm a contributor to the blog now, and I put my first post up today. Stop by over there and see us sometime. I know that I need all the help that I can get!

Our shopping trip to Sam's Club was a bust on Saturday, because they weren't open for business yet! Mr. P had signed up for a membership card through his company, so we did get to go in and check on that. But the store won't be open for business until the 22nd.

Our trip to Target was much more successful. They have some of the cutest items in the dollar bins right now. Pink and green sponges, rubber gloves, and lint rollers to name a few.





And they had these cute Valentine's tea towels for only $2.50. I love the cupcake on the front. Don't they look cute hanging on my oven door?


I was also looking for a small ottoman for the great room. I looked at a few at Target and I almost bought a leather one there, but it wasn't quite what I wanted. Imagine my surprise when I found just what I was looking for when I was grocery shopping at Wal-Mart on Sunday afternoon. I love the stripes on this one, and it was only $25! It really matches the color scheme that I have in my great room, and it has storage underneath it. All of the Wii paraphernalia had been getting on my nerves and I was looking for a basket to put it all in. But now I have it neatly stowed in the ottoman!




I have to say, Mr. P was quite patient with all of my shopping. I'm a browser, and he was such a trooper while I wandered around in Target : )
