Another wet weekend here. It rained pretty much all day Saturday and all day Sunday. I had planned on working out in the yard....but that didn't happen. Friday night was my monthly girls get together. Every month, me and my best friends from High School get together. We have a great time. Saturday I went shopping with 2 of my friends...it was Tax Free Weekend as most of you know....so it was CRAZY!!!! There were millions of people out shopping! We found some great buys! Butterfly Ginger....what a heavenly smell!
blooms on The Hunter's watermelons!
Bee Balm with Zinnia in background
Rose (not sure which one)
We went to Kohl's Saturday and they had an awesome sale! I bought this table cloth for $3!!!!!! The placemats were $1 each!
I love it, because as you can see...my walls are very similar in color! I actually bought 2 of the tablecloths. I am going to use the other one to make mats for my "rusty 'ol cart" since I haven't been able to find any I like to put on each shelf. Then I am going to use the remainder to make curtains for my kitchen (the tablecloth was 60" x 104"). That should be plenty to make 3 simple curtains, and 3 little place mats for the cart.
Saturday while we were shopping I had a little dilemma! I wore a sundress shopping, and it zipped in the back. I was looking for a cute outfit to wear this upcoming weekend (we'll get to that soon). I go in the dressing room and try on a few outfits, but didn't like any of them. I go to put my dress back on and the zipper BROKE!!!!!! It wouldn't zip back up!!! Are you kidding me! So both of my girlfriends came into the dressing room with me to try to zip my dress. An hour later...it was a lost cause. It would only zip about 6" and its about and 18" zipper!!! So my bra and most of my back were exposed. My friends went on a mad dash to find me something to put on...and as luck would have it A) It either didn't fit or B) I hated it. I wasn't going to buy something just to get out of the store...I wanted to spend my money on something I would actually wear again! So I told them to go scan clothes to find some safety pins. You know how some clothes tags are pinned on with safety pins...so that's what they did. They pinned me up and we went on to the next store. The next store was a big fancy department store, and yes, some people didn't realize that my dress was pinned up!!! Who cares....
2-1/2 hours after Zipper-gate began...my friends FINALLY found a dress for me that fit, and that I liked. Whew!!!!! I was about to buy a bathrobe and wear it the rest of the day. It all worked out in the end. Of course I was a bit agitated....when you don't need something...you can find it. When you need something.....you can hang it up because you will NEVER find it. This was the case Saturday.
Friday I am leaving to go to..... NASHVILLE!!!!! Whoo hoo!!!! My brother is getting married August 29th, so this weekend is the bachelorette party and we are going to NASHVILLE!!! I am so excited because I have NEVER been to Nashville! I can't wait!! We are going to have blast. We will leave Friday and come back Sunday....I am READY!! My boots are polished and ready to hit the floor!
We have our Garden Club meeting this Thursday...feels like ages since I have been! I missed out meeting in June because I was at the beach on vacation. We don't meet in July. I haven't seen my garden ladies in ages. I can't wait to see them and catch up. I will have to pack Wednesday so I can go to the meeting Thursday.
