Weddings can be budget busting and the bridal gowns a huge part of that. So to help pay for mine, I decided to have a yard sale to get rid of all the extraneous items I would no longer need when combining households.
We packed the kids up Friday night and drove down to Cedar Hills to spend the weekend with my parents. Grandma Kandi had the kid room all set up with sleeping bags and pillows & blankets. She even brought in the TV & VCR so they could watch Charlotte's Web.
Saturday morning we unloaded everything into the driveway and turned the yard sale over to Tiffani the yard sale Diva. By 2 o'clock when we closed up shop, we had made over $500! That was a great big help in paying off the dress. Jason and I got a night out without the youngin's that night as they stayed with Grandma & Grandpa. We went to the Mayan Restaurant in Salt Lake City and had great steak & mexican food and watched the awesome cliff divers. Then we cruised to downtown and walked around Temple Square. I hadn't been there since last Christmas. It's beautiful to see in the Fall.
Dad took Jason to Cabela's on Saturday after they went and got fitted for Tuxes. Now he's hooked and had to go back each day we were down there. We came home with bags full of Cabela's gear.. hats and shirts and even camoflauge winter coats for the kids. He was like a kid in a candy shop.
Gracie got a new pair of Disney Princess sneakers this week and she just loves them.
Madi is excited about putting in a book order and is selling cookies for a school fundraiser. If we haven't called you to order yet... wait by the phone LOL.
Jake is learning all about seasons in pre-school this week and brought home a fun picture today where he had glued leaves of varying colors on a tree.
Time for me to go get dinner started and change the laundry and help Madi finish her homework and......
