Goodwill Finds

Well, I am way behind this week! It was a really fun really busy weekend, it started Friday night with an impromptu family dinner with some of hubby's family. I was making a turkey, and since it was 22 pounds, we decided we needed help eating it! We had a great evening!! Saturday I took Little Monkey swimming at her aunt's house. It was the first time since she was an infant, she did so great!! Scared at first of course, but after about 15 minutes she was telling me to go away! She had on armies (those little floats you can put on their arms), and a foam noodle. She floated around and kicked and had a grand time! After we took the kiddos, LM, and her 3 cousins, to a Taco Bell/KFC that had a play area for lunch and wore them out even more! After we finished with lunch I went to Goodwill and found some goodies, some of these came from a trip to a different Goodwill on Thursday as well.

Not all these cloths are for LM, the infant stuff is for her soon to be born little girl cousin!

I also go this basket of stuff. The embroidery hoops were only $.45 each! They are going to be part of a gift for my sister for her new baby room. Hopefully I'll get to work on them soon!

Sunday was another busy, but fun day for us! The weekend just kept on going, it was great! Oh, a funny little story for you. We have several friends who are expecting babies soon, Little Monkey also has 3 aunts that are expecting. When we came home Sunday night we had a conversation that went something like this.

Little Monkey is in the bath "cleaning up".
LM: Mommy, I have a baby in my tummy.
Me: Oh really? Who told you that?
LM: M and G (her little friends) told me.?
Me: okay.
LM: We are all mommies, so that means we have babies in our tummies.
I love the logic of three year old's! This made me laugh, she has been telling me she has a baby in her tummy each day, and of course asking me if I have one too. I had to try to explain that not every mommy has a baby in her tummy, and that I don't. She doesn't quite get it yet. :)


  1. Testing, testing. I would love to comment...

  2. It's gone... well, I guess you didn't need that story... I have a really, really hard time posting a comment...

  3. Ah, Melissa

    I need inspiration for a quilt/throw for each of the two Sintz (sp) girls... Abby and Paige( You may know their style better... at least better than I do! I have some ideas, but I think I may be way off...Any help would be appreciated. I don't know how to email other than leaving a comment. I am rather in the dark ages (knowledge wise on these blogs)

  4. Great finds. I love laying everything out when I get home from a thrift shopping day, especially if I find a lot. I love conversations with little ones even if the questions are sometimes hard to answer. ;) Glad you had a fun weekend.

  5. LM is adorable! :D I got my sweet note. Methinks you just might make My Happy List this week :D

    By the way...I bet you have many baby showers in your immediate future!
