Monday Memories!


We had Tornado watches out all day Friday so schools in our county let out at 1:30... I went home and got Camden's carrier ready to head to Lee's sister's house for coverage. (They have a poured underground basement, so that is where we go for safety) When the husband got home from work we headed to his sister's. Thankfully, the storms had weakened by the time they got to us.
To play it safe, we just went out for supper close by and grabbed bar-b-q...
Then we went home and relaxed all evening, which was nice for a change!


We got up bright & early b/c we made plans to go to Dog Town (furniture warehouse) which is over 2 hours away. We were on the hunt for vanities for our powder room and upstairs bathrooms and my parents joined us for the adventure. We loaded up the trailer just knowing we would find something and ate breakfast at Jack's! Of course, we didn't find ANYTHING after hauling that trailer 3 hours!!! I told Lee, if we wouldn't have brought the trailer, we would have found everything we wanted!
We then decided to go to T.D.'s which is a furniture store an hour from our house in the OPPOSITE direction of Dog Town. We didn't find vanities there, but I found a desk and file cabinet I LOVE! We didn't get it yet, but plan on going back later.
When leaving T.D.'s we saw a sign of Sides Furniture two red lights down, so WHY NOT give it a shot! Of course we didn't find vanities but I found some living room furniture I LOVE! We plan to go back and get it closer to finishing the house....
We had to be back by 3:30 to talk with possible buyers of our home. So, we grabbed lunch at a Bar-B-Q joint. Which was an interesting experience I will not go into;).... The meeting with the people interested in our home went GREAT, just waiting to hear back!
After our meeting, we headed to the house that has our brick and stack stone combination. (Remember, the stack stone place the woman told us to go was shut down). OF COURSE, they were not home... but we left a note in the mailbox... Hoping for a reply SOON!
We decided to go to dinner at Taziki's (and used our coupon!) After dinner, I tried to do my coupon shopping at CVS and they were OUT OF EVERYTHING!! UGH....
Next, we we made the interesting Lowe's and Home Depot trips I talked about in my post yesterday...
Finally, we made it home and passed out, we were exhausted!


Went to Sunday School, ate lunch at Milo's (cheeseburger combo, just sauce, cut in half, mega sized, apple pie, and a sweet tea for me! Not one glass of sweet tea but TWO... and I drank some of Lee's milkshake! That is so ridiculous!!)
We then went home to take a Sunday Nascar Nap, which felt amazing...
And last night was our Raze the Roof Rally for our community churches which is held at the high school. We heard some wonderful praise and worship music, dramas, and unbelievable testimonies... A tragedy has recently occured in our community. Two teens killed in a car accident.... asking for prayers of strength for their families, friends, and the community.

I know this post is a lot of rambling we just had a busy weekend!

Hope you had a BLESSED weekend!!

I am trying to get my kitchen ideas in my mind... it is what I am currently stressing about. If you have any web sites/ideas PLEASE help! Also, websites for powder room vanities, not having any luck in that area either!!

House Update:
They are pouring the basement floor as we speak!! Hopefully the wood will start coming up tomorrow!!!! :)

Happy Monday Everyone!
