Craigslist Shopping

Yesterday morning I loaded the kids in the pick up, grabbed my sister and her youngest and we headed to Boise.

Of course after the locksmith was called to come unlock the pickup that Taylor locked the night before with the keys IN IT!

I have been looking for a few items and I found BOTH of them in Boise and both at good prices.
So off we went to get the items.


It's time to get back into shape. It's just easier for me to workout when the kids (mainly Parker) is napping or in bed for the night.
Big must on this bad boy was it HAD to fold up! Our basement is jammed packed as it is with all of my AJ's Bow-tique stuff and our photography stuff, so it had to become smaller to help on the space issue!

Second item,

Haven't set it up yet, but I am pretty sure I am gonna LOVE this! I tried doing the quilting myself, but pushing the quilts through my machine, just wasn't for me. I know practice makes perfect, but I am a little on the un-patient side when it comes to things like that. AND taking the time to make the quilt, spending ALL that money just for me not to get it all right quilting was driving me bonkers!
Hopefully this will be golden, because I just dropped 40 bucks on a quilt at the quilters and that's too much for me! (pictures to come on that quilt on my other blog!!) :)

Two big purchases, One happy lady.

Ash and I had lots of fun shopping with you! Who says girls can't load heavy stuff into pickups and haul it around!

Nicole said...

My favorite kind of shopping. Those are fun purchases too. I'm sure you will love both of them too. I can't wait to see what else you are going to make!

I am so very jealous. I would love to have both purchases.

I am with Megan, you gotta tell me how much that long arm was because I WANT ONE and I looke them up and get sticker shock. But I can see how it would be a ggod trade off for all the frustration and money that I spend trying to do it with my machine. Let me know... :)
