some randomness.

on saturday, i went yard sale-ing with my pal jude. it was one of those sweet yard sale days where i just kept finding sweet sweet deals. one of the best was this radio flyer trike (with handle) that i scored for $20 for anna. it’s $100 new. the hat she’s wearing was also a yard sale pickup. i got a bunch of old better homes and gardens quilt books. some jeans (always an awesome find) for the boy. some sweet toys. lots of kids books. 20120516-185924.jpg

this is one of the sweet yard sale finds. isaac has been coveting this batman imaginext toy for months. it’s $55 new. it was $4 at a yard sale. it didn’t have any figurines, but he could care less about that. anna is a fan too…

    Such a cool mom! My yard sale motto-why spend $50 when you can spend $.50
