Why yesterday was so awesome....












*Starting and ending the day with a walk around the neighborhood with the best baby in the world who is growing up WAY too quickly!!
*Watching the girls ride their bikes and enjoying the cool (cool is definitely being used loosely here) evening air.
*making "jazzy jars" with the girls to take to school for the annual Harvest Hoedown.
*buying the most awesome Halloween ribbon (notice the thick orange and purple) at the Dollar Store.
*having a VERY successful trip to the thrift store. I LOVE the challenge of leaving the store with AMAZING stuff. I bought all sorts of Gymboree, Children's Place, and Gap clothing (I've posted my two favorites...when it comes to baby girl dresses, I'm obsessed). I also got the awesome 4 wick pumpkin candle pictured below. It is making my house smell AMAZING (you have to say amazing in your best sing song voice, haven't you heard me say it like that?) And, no trip to the thrift store would be complete without some good children's books.
*eating McDonalds for dinner. Okay, I normally hate McDonalds, but have you ever had their Southwest salad? My sister, Andrea, told me about it and I was very impressed. But, the best part about eating McDonalds for dinner was the fact that there was no cooking involved or dirty dishes afterwards (we also went b/c it is a new location near us and for the rest of the month they have 99 cent happy meals every Wednesday...oops, I found out it was actually Thursday but there was no turning around at that point or else my kids would've gone ballistic)

...and that is why I had such an awesome day.

Dude, what kind of candle is that? I love candles as much as Mandy does. Walmart had some of their Better Homes and Garden candles for $4.95. My favorite is Mulled Cranbery. It smells amazing!!I try to do consignment shops as well. You must have some awesome ones there.
