Although I've missed a couple of weeks, I'm joining Kelli's Show and Tell Friday today! I was gone most of the day and evening, so I'm trying to get it in so it's still on Friday! LOL
Just wanted to show off the great sale that I got in on at my job. I work part-time at Belk Department store in the shoe department (of all places), so I scoped out my finds and put them to the side. The shoes are by Kristin Davis (actress/designer from Sex & the City) and they were originally $82.00, but after the 75% off clearance sale to get rid of the fall and winter shoes, plus my 20% discount, they were a little under $13!!!!
I got the boots a couple of weeks earlier when we had a 50% off sale off of the already 50% off price, plus my discount = a little over $15!!! Those boots are BCBG Girls, which were regularly $155!!! Even though I only got to wear them for a day (last week it was actually cold all week), I have them for next year.
Today was our 18th wedding anniversary, thank the Lord! Our day started with a wonderful breakfast prepared by our awesome kiddos! We were escorted into the kitchen and then served scrambled eggs, bacon, heart-shaped toast (2 cute!) and cran-grape juice. We were so thrilled! They are just too sweet!
The happy couple looking our morning's best! lol
Later in the day we went to Grapevine Mills Mall and walked around and enjoyed window shopping and saw Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail. The movie was too funny! We stopped at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for some goodies. You have to try the pretzel sticks dipped in caramel, nuts and white and milk chocolate and the chocolate covered potato chips! We got to taste-test some chocolate covered orange peel, which was deliciously different (not enough to buy, though)!
This evening we stopped at Southlake Town Square and ate dinner at Copeland's New Orleans restaurant. Check it out at www.nmrestaurants.com/copelands. If you live near one, you gotta go!
Here's a back-in-the-day shot of us on our wedding day eighteen years ago! Weren't we skinny? lol
I think I'll keep him another 18 years!!! Be Blessed!
This is the first time I'm joining Peggy at http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/ and I hope I linked it up right! I think this is a wonderful way to share insight into your day and with others and to possibly make some new blogger friends!
FOR TODAY Monday, March 9th...
Outside my window... I hear the sounds of the cars and trucks going down the freeway behind my house. I've always loved the sound of the trucks going down the freeway, because it reminds me of when I was younger and traveled with my parents. That's the sound I would hear as I layed in bed at the hotel, late at night and early in the morning.
I am thinking... about my role as wife and mother and how I can better serve my family and God.
I am thankful for... my family. I'm blessed to be the mother of six outstanding children. I'm still amazed that God gave me the opportunity to be a mommy.
From the kitchen... I'm preparing shrimp scampi with garlic cheese bread for dinner.
I am wearing... A fuschia & multi-colored print top, jeans and socks and pink and white Adidas sneakers.
I am going... to the bank to deliver Avon and to the carwash to wash and vacuum our SUV.
I am reading... Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore. It's my reading assignment for our women's group at church. Great book!
I am hoping... to be blessed with a job that provides the income needed, and not be painful.
I am hearing... washing machine and dryer. Thank you Lord for clean clothes!
Around the house... I'm straigtening up papers in our bedroom and vacuuming downstairs.
One of my favorite things... is reading other blogs and enjoying what others are accomplishing in their lives.
A few plans for the rest of the week: recuperate from each day of work (Tues-Thur) and try to continue cleaning.
I'm a blessed mom with a sweet husband and six beautiful children. I love the Lord and want to do all that I can to please Him! I love going to church and participating in church-related activities. I love doing things for my family and just hanging out with them. I love all things girly, like purses, clothes, shoes, jewelry and makeup! I sell Avon and love watching women light up with the products they purchase. I love my life and thank God for it! I hope that this blog can be a blessing to others as others have been to me!
