A Free Shopping Spree!

I went on a HUGE shopping trip yesterday.  And it didn't cost me a penny!  

Yesterday I drove up to my mom's house and I went Christmas shopping in her garage!  It was fantastic.  I got a few Snow Village peices from my Dad's train set (not all are the Department 56 brand so Casey and I will probably switch them out as our collection grows), a set of Budweiser Clydesdale Beer Steins (they sound tacky but I swear they will be great for Christmas parties!), some big decorative Santas, a few serving peices, a candy dish, a 3" tree to put in the family room (our big tree will go in the living room), a few ornaments, some really pretty gold ribbon, gold and white tree picks, and some yummy smelling pine cones. 

Now I have a big pile of Christmas decor sitting on the floor and all I want to do is start putting it up!  

Instead, I am off to the courthouse to request defensive driving for my silly ticket.

  2. Good luck at the courthouse! I actually took a defensive driving course for my insurance and it was actually pretty fun. I got to drive around TMS all day. :)

    Yay for free Christmas decorations!
