Super Saturday

Yesterday was a lovely day. The weather was perfect: cool in the morning, sunny and warm in the afternoon. I went to lunch with a friend from church, Liz, on Friday (Cheddar's) and we were talking about garage sales and our husbands being away Saturday mornings, so I asked if she wanted to garage-sale'ing with me and she said yes. We decided to go around the neighborhoods near her - Moore & South Oklahoma City - and it was no slim pickins' - there were a ton of sales. But we hit the jackpot when we found a storage center sale. It was like the garage sale mecca! Together we ended up with some good stuff.

I bought these cute little white bowls for a dollar.




































I am such a sucker for things that nest.

Got these two books for $1.25.



















This suitcase for $5.
























The last thing I need is more luggage, but this one is the size I was lacking. It will be great for all of our/Bobby's overnight trips to Dallas.

I found these two shirts - the OU shirt for $1 (for me) and this blue military/work short for $2 (for bobby.)





































He thought it would be a cool guitar-playing shirt. I agree.

And my big ticket item was this area rug for our living room. It is not exactly what I wanted, but because the echo is so bad in there, and the floor is so bare, I was so happy to find this. The colors match pretty well, it is in really good shape, and it was only $10! Here's a picture of it laying on our backyard table. Once we clean it and put it in place, I'll show a picture of it in action.



















Later that night Liz and her husband came over to watch the OU game. We were so excited to host our first football game gathering in our new house, even though the house isn't quite ready for entertaining yet... They promised to look past the bare walls and floors, and boxes, and unfinished bathroom, oh, and the turtles in the bathtub.

Bobby waiting for the game to start - red shirt on the red couch - nice!



















Me giving the #1 sign. Unfortunately OU is far from #1 this year... :-(



















And you gotta have two kinds of salsa - red & green



















We're so glad Liz and Jarod came over. And they brought their adorable dog, Cooper!

Wow--you got some really good deals.

It sure is fun watching OU play ball with good friends. We sure DID NOT play well though. Hopefully we will play better next weekend. Boomer.......Sooner!

Ooooh...I really like the rug! $10 is an amazing deal for a good rug - even if it isn't your dream rug. Especially your dream rug probably costs between $100-$300!!! :)
Also like the bowls!
