Putting the Parents to Work

Let me tell you, I have some of the best parents! We got so much done this weekend. They didn't get here until 10pm Saturday night and they left at about 3:30 this afternoon.

My stepmom is a creative and thrifty genious. We painted my bedroom and master bathroom in about 7 hours. Also in that time, my dad put together my new kitchen table, 6 stools, and hung a bunch of stuff for me.

After a hard days work, we were invited to Morrigan and her beau's house for dinner. Dad had his heart set on Dave's BBQ, but when pot roast was mentioned, it was no question. So we had an absolutely wonderful dinner there while my lil sis talked everyone's ear off. It was fun. Thanks again you two!

Then this morning, my stepmom and I did some serious shopping. We found great deals everywhere we went. We hit the great towel sale at Kohl's, got curtain rods, curtains and sheers at Bed Bath and Beyond and another gallon of paint at Home Depot. I have mail-in rebates to send in, Kohl's cash to use at a future date, and were even able to use an expired coupon. She's that good! :-)
(Advice: Bed, Bath and Beyond willingly takes expired coupons and takes Linen's and Things coupons)

I hate that I have to go to Kansas City tomorrow as I'm still motivated to get more done.

I get back Friday but 5 hours later, my friend B from Yuma arrives.

So here's to everything coming together and to the best parents ever!

Our pleasure. Sorry about the pound cake. It does have its share of butter. I've been eating it for breakfast...mmmm perhaps I'll add a slice of bacon. ;-)
