Shopping

The Week’s End Activities.

This weekend was a nice one. We enjoyed the farmers market, a few yard sales, and got to spend some quality family time together. Daniel also preached his very first sermon yesterday, which was special. I’m not just saying this cause he is my husband, but for the first time preparing and delivering a sermon, he did EXCELLENT. We have discovered that my husband has quite a bit of natural talent for public speaking. While listening to him, I became overwhelmed for a few minutes with emotion- both good and scary. For months I’ve been feeling God moving us towards a pastoral or some kind of leadership calling. I also felt very undeserving of such a wonderful man. I am so grateful.

Over the weekend I got some stuff done and picked up some things here and there. Wanna see?

I ordered striped paper straws for Abram’s birthday party and they came in Friday afternoon. They are really cute!

I made a bunch of hair clips for a little girl at church. I always love to decorate and package my orders and gifts, because it always brings a smile to the receiver.

Picked up this cute pair of overalls at the Educate BV yard sale on Saturday. From the looks of the tag, they might be vintage. I just really liked the colors.

Snagged this gem of a vintage bag for a dollar at a yard sale.

FINALLY found a pair of shorts that fit me comfortably. Still working on the post-pregnancy bod, and man things just fit so weird. These are cute, and go along with the nautical theme I seem to be following lately.

Bought this liquid container that we are going to use for the bubble station for Abram’s birthday party. This will hold the refill bubbles, and I’ve saved baby food jars here and there to hold the bubbles in for the kids. Recycle!

Decided to finally get a case of ball jars, they’re real cheap: only 9 dollars for 12 jars at Wal-mart. I want to use these for pretty drinks for the Bachelorette Party I’m hosting for my friend Kay. I also want to use them for everyday drinking. That is green tea in there, btw. I realized after taking the picture that it looked kinda gross.

I made a list that gives Daniel and I a daily reminder of the things we need to do to the house so that it is guest-ready for when family and friends come in for Abram’s birthday.

 

Well that was my weekend. How was yours?

 

 

 

Weekend Buys.

I had such a great weekend with my man and my boy. Saturday we strolled the annual Olustee Festival down Marion St. with Daniel’s mom and enjoyed fair foods. I got a corn dog and some deep fried oreos that nearly sent me into a food coma and gave me a yucky headache. It was completely worth it. I also made some fantastic purchases:

Ok, so talk about some delicious smelling soap that leaves you all soft and clean. Goats milk soap is the best. I got this from the a.k.a. farms booth at the festival. I was so happy to find that they still had some Fresh Snow scent left. Daniel and I got a bar of it for Christmas and still haven’t used it because it makes our entire bathroom smell like sweet tarts! They have all kinds of scented goats milk soaps, and if you live in Lake City then you are in luck! They are at the Lake Desoto Farmers Market every week. If your not local, then click here to visit their site and buy some soap!

I got these artsy Dia De Los Muertos coasters from one of my favorite ladies. Corrine makes all kinds of wonderful stuff, and you can also find her at the Farmers Market in town. Visit her etsy shop and look through all her goodies. I chose these coasters because my sister also likes this kind of art and I wanted to add these to her house warming package.

I definitely didn’t get these at the festival. Saturday evening Daniel’s parents and I took Daniel to Jacksonville for a Guitar Center birthday shopping spree and Cheesecake Factory. The wait for dinner was 45 minutes. I had an anthropoligie gift card that my friend Leanne gave to me for my birthday, and a store HAPPENED to be within walking distance from the restaurant. I picked up these three pretty cabinet nobs that I am going to install in my bedroom to hang necklaces off of.

So overall, my weekend was much fun and I am very satisfied with my purchases. How was your weekend?
