I had a beautiful weekend.....it envolved grandkids...shopping and hubby time. First off hubby and I got to keep two of our grandbabies on Friday night. So happy about this. We hadn't seen them in two weeks. Their mother was keeping a tight hold on them as she was without them much longer than we were. I got to love up on them until noon on Sturday.
Hubby and I then had to get out in the boat. Soak up some sun....well I soaked up sun while he fished. I don't mind fishing....just prefer reading and sun bathing. If I have me some chip and salsa it would have been the perfect day!
Hubby on Sunday decided we needed to check out a new store in our area called Sheels. I decided if I must try out a new sporting goods store then D will needed to run me by Ikea because Ikea hasn't seen me in a while and I am sure their sales were down because of it. So Sheels was a beautiful store, that also had beautiful prices. You see D and I are thrifty people. We love a bargin or a sale. And if we had a coupon we are all over it. Sheels doesn't have coupons....or frequent buyers card...or anything that D thought he could live without. You see D is a Bass Pro kind of guy. He is a freguent buyer their....he has coupons.......$$$ of $50 purchase type of coupons. This place speaks his love language. I think Sheels will need to come up with some type of specials or D will not be flattered.
After D decided that Sheels is not his kind of store we moved on over to my kind of store Ikea! Oh the money I could drop in that place....Oh the money I have dropped in that place. You see I have a gift card that was screaming to be spent. My plans were to purchase under the kitchen cabinet lighting. And that is what I did. But then there was this beautiful black lantern that just begged me to take it home....and I did, right after I threw by back out checking out their new beds. Beds are half way through the store which means.......and if you all have ever been to Ikea there is half the size of a football field of shopping left to do. I am in so much pain with my back but was I going to let that stop me. I don't think so. It would just require D to carry all my stuff. Hey, I suffered through Sheels the least he can do is carry all my stuff. And when we were almost to the end. There it was. The lantern that I have been swooning over in all the magizines. The price was unbelievable! It now sits on my patio table on the front porch. It was made to go there, if was ment to be. It was because of all the back pain and suffering that I felt I needed a little gift to help. And it did!
