Yesterday while browsing through our Goodwill, I saw this picture that had caught my eye a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't justify buying it, where would it go? I did the usual I love it, but I really don't need it and left. As soon as you walk into the Goodwill here, they had it up on a high shelf so it would stare right at you when you opened their front door. Now I've been to Goodwill several times since first seeing it and it caught my eye every single time. I loved it. It was calling my name. I had convinced myself that I didn't need it. When it caught hub's eye he said it was a really nice picture. Yesterday he helped me get it. Not that it was that expensive, but I try to stay on a pretty tight budget here and Goodwilling is my vent of being on a tight budget. It was marked $40. I just couldn't justify it. So...hub tells me to ask if they'll mark it down. I know...we're so cheap, right?! *winks* So, they called the manager over the microphone....as I laid on the floor with embarrassment...I mean seriously, who begs for a discount in Goodwill? Ummmm...we do? She came and said she couldn't mark it down and I gave her this look...
Here's a few more pics of it...
I had no problem finding a place for this. It matched the chest perfectly. I moved a few pictures around in the family room and it's a done deal.
You never know what Goodwill has sitting on it's shelf!! I can't wait to show you my Pier One find! Next post!
Hannah blegged out on me yesterday with her treasure post. Too tired perhaps? Ahem. She said she would "try" to do one NEXT Saturday. I'm so firing her if she doesn't. GIRLS!! Geesh.
I wanted to tell you that I'm still loving the Cozi.com site. They really should hire me. I love that site. It is keeping me in order with all my household cleaning. I had another Saturday of waking up to a clean house. The only job I have to do on that day is changing the linens in the master bedroom. My menu and grocery shopping is all done through Cozi. I also keep up with all of Hannah's school functions and homework assignements! I know what homework is due every week. Her school emails me this every week! Nice, huh?
Update on the Lemony Soup recipe...hated it. Hub loved it. I hated it. It tasted okay, but I'm just not use to a plain, blah, rice soup I guess. That's what it tasted like to me. I do have a new recipe for Slow Cooker corn chowder that I'm serving up on Monday night. If it passes my taste test, I'll share the recipe.
We still have not painted. My goal is to have this done before Thanksgiving. That gives me a few weeks to procrastinate over it. I've already asked my son would he be interested in painting it...he quickly said no. I should have really guilt tripped him up with..."thanks, since I labored for days to have you, rode in an ambulance and had so much drama, I guess I don't DESERVE for you to paint this room for me"...but, I didn't. He's a busy guy, so I'll leave him alone THIS time.
