Heck of a Deal...

The town we call home in SC is really small, so it is about a 45 min. drive to go to Target or any of my other favorite stores. The nearest Hobby Lobby is over an hour away, and getting to go requires atleast half of your day. In TN all of these stores are in 2 shopping centers a few miles apart. So, it is no surprise that One of the highlights of visiting my parents in TN is getting to go shopping without having to drag my little guys along. They gladly watch my rugrats and let me run to my favorite stores. Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Target, and Tuesday Morning are always a must. I got a few deals this trip in the little bit of shopping I did, and I wanted to tell you about one in particular. I found a tassel. A beautiful, big, fluffy, wonderful tassel.

My parents laughed at me for being so excited over this little beauty, but I found it at TJ MAXX for a heck of a deal...$6.99. Now I love to make tassels, but it is not a cheap hobby.I could not make a tassel for that. Atleast not one with this much fluff. I am working on one for my Mom right now, and the topper alone was $5.

Okay, enough about my tassel. Now that we are back home I have much m0re important things to worry about. Like why did Connor feel the need to dump a whole bottle of body wash in the tub? They could fart and it would make a crazy amount of bubbles. I had to keep rinsing the tub out for an hour to get all those bubbles down the drain. I took this picture of Walker still enjoying the bubbles after Connor was already out of the tub. Keep in mind he is in about 4 inches of water, and the rest bubbles. Boys.

I once left 2 little boys who were staying at my house in the tub with bubbles and a wire whisk (I have no tub toys!) and they whipped up so many bubbles that I thought I would never get them all out!

Your shopping trip sounds like a dream. :) All my favorite stores, too. The closest I can get to shopping there is over 3 hours away. Boo hoo. But, I will be going to a Hobby Lobby in a couple of weeks, and man am I gearing up for it. :)
