Really Great Pizza and a Yard Sale Bonanza!

The closer it gets to the end of school - the happier I feel! This has been a very difficult year, for many reasons, and I will be glad to see it come to an end.
I have a long list of things that I want to do this summer - and I can't wait to get started on them.

I am still working on the baby blanket as often as I can. It's almost 20 inches now.

This morning a friend and I headed to Tryon, NC to have pizza at the Side Street Cafe. It is one of my favorite restaurants and I don't get over there very often, it's about 45 minutes. ON the way I saw a yard sale sign and pulled in...boy am I glad that I did. They were packing up, but pulled out the toys and baby clothes. I got a big box of baby toys for $3, there must have been well over $100 worth of toys in that box. And there were Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger and other name brand clothes. I spent $25 and got 15 outfits and`all those toys. Not a bad haul!

I'm trying to get all of my craft stash organized. At Hobby Lobby, I bought some really pretty fabric covered boxes in graduated sized. They only had two black and white toile boxes, which match my bedspread, and then I got a set of five navy and white. So I am putting stuff away and it is looking good! Are all crafters messy or is it just me?

Happy Memorial Day!

I am looking forward to school being done this year as well :)

I am glad you got some great deals at the garage sale! I love going to garage sales :D

Those boxes sound great, I have several like that stacked in my living room and stuff full of my craft supplies, at least they look nice right? My things are constantly needing to be put away, I am as messy as my kids :P
