Love the garage sales!

My mom and I got up early and went garage saling this morning. We love to garage sale. It's always interesting to see what you can find. I found an adorable brand new duck chair for Miss Thing's room. It is big and plush! I've been looking at them in the Pottery Barn Kids magazine but couldn't justify spending that much. I got it for $5! YAY! We also picked up a cute little rocking chair that I'm going to paint and a plush paint rocking horse that whinnies and makes hoof noises when you push the buttons on it's ears. Very cute! We got some other stuff too but now I can't remember what. It was perfect weather for garage saling too. Cool with a warm sun. So nice:)
Then we came back to my house, unloaded all the loot and went to the best little drive-in in the area which happens to be about 5 miles from our house. Apparently everyone else had the same idea as it was packed. They have great food there!
Tonight we're watching Nascar and putting together the pack-n-play as our crib is still ~in route~ and won't be here until the end of the month. Hopefully it will get here before Miss Thing does! Oh, I'm doing laundry too.
I did take some belly pics but I haven't got them uploaded to my computer yet. My scraproom/office is all ripped apart since we're doing a little remodel in there so access to my cords and computer are currently not as handy as usual. I'll try to get them on tomorrow. I've grown quite a bit!! I don't know how men can stand to have a beer belly all the time?? This baby belly really gets in the way of bending over, putting on my shoes, putting on pants, ect.

You'll also notice from the comments from the last post that my brother has found my blog again. He always adds a little color with his comments and smart #ss wit. You would think that since we share blood and possibly eventually my liver, that he would be on my side but alas he sides with Lance all the time! ~sigh~ He better hope Lance's liver is as ~nice~ as mine is... when/if that time comes....
Mine could come with a lot of strings attached! tee hee hee

That's what I need to do, to to Garage Sales to try and find the last of the few (expensive) items I want.
I cant get past the rocking chair from Babies R Us, but it's going to cost me around $500.
But I cant help but thing "I Deserve It!" I mean, I am the one getting up with him in the night to nurse him, I Want comfort!

The other thing I love is Craigs List. Seriously I don't think I'll ever buy anything new for a baby again. Well except for clothes because those damn little girl clothes draw me in at the store with their insane adorableness.
