This was amazing!!

Saturday my husband and I took a trip into town to take a big load of our things to the local thrift store. Of course, since I was there I had to go in and look around, but I didn't find anything worth getting this time.

We then had to go to Walmart to get some pictures printed. I wanted to look at the lamps because I am in need of a lamp for my bedroom and a tall lamp for my front room. We were pricing and seeing what we would want. We were looking at the clearanced lamps, my husband took one to price it when he came back he told me it scanned for $1.00. Yep, you saw it right $1.00!!! There were two lamps left and so we bought them both. Now I have two lamps for my room. I got two lamps and unfortunately they only had one lamp shade left. My one lamp with the shade cost $6.00. That was a fun trip to Walmart!! and I don't even like shopping at Walmart.

G,Day, read your comment on Andrea's blog about cricket. I was amused by some of the comments.Cricket is a passion to people living in England, South Africa, Zimbabawe, India , Pakistan, New Zealand , Australia. I'll leave it somone else to fill in what a bowler does what a leg break is and who Warnie is.

I love finding those deals at places. Awesome job! You are making that trailer so homey you will never want to build a house :)

I'm pretty sure I will want a real built house but the bright side will be I'll already have nice things to put in my house.
