Today I was on a mission! Luckily I knew where to start. My bird was trying to distract me with this cute innocent look…but really he was screaming for my attention all day! (Not acceptable!!) So I did some flight training with him. He’s really starting to get control with his flight…unlike the other day where he flew across the room, smacked into the glass slider, then was dangling off the end table. I’m sure it hurt but I was laughing too hard to notice! He was ok…but didn’t learn cuz he tried it again in my bedroom…so flight training I will do. 😉
Speaking of bedrooms, back to the subject!
I have a big white void on my bedroom wall that needs some color! I was debating doing another vinyl wall decal, but then again, I was wanting an oil painting. Fred Meyer had some awesome Koi fish oil paints, but for full price…so I headed to my favorite Home Goods store. They have ridiculously low prices on everything! I got a large framed mirror there last year for like $30! So after scanning all their paintings I settled on this one. (I hadn’t taken the cardboard off the edges yet…)
I’m loving all the primary colors in this print! And such a lovely scene…(and nobody’s getting drunk in the background either haha).
As I was wandering I checked out the clearance rack and could not leave without these bowls! They are like a coral color (not pink). Poppies print. So Gorgeous!
Then off to Dress Barn. I saw a beautiful necklace there last time but had already spent a bit on the new dresses. So I decided to come back. And I also found these CUTE earrings! They totally matched my shirt today too!
[Disclaimer: I did not take that WHILE driving…I was at a red light…]
So moving on… My all time favorite store since I was a teenager was having a 75% off sale… So in I go!
I fell in LOVE with this Limoncello scent! So awesome it also came in a hand soap! I could just smell it all day…but then that might be considered huffing??
I also got a bunch of wall flower refills in these scents: fresh balsam (super awesome they brought it back in the summer!), island nectar, limoncello, and flower shop (smells like peonies). :]
And then…. Here’s two new lotions. The peach poppy is a very light scent, like can barely smell it. But the Rio Rumberry is super charged island smells. LOVE IT!!
Oh…and the best part, they were only $2.75 each! Then the final total…$34!
I felt like I won the lottery! Lol!! Ok, so not really. But I was really happy! 😀
I probably looked like a dork with the yea’s I was doing as I saw each item price ring up. LOL!!
I also went to GNC to get refills on my vitamins. I got up-saled on these chew square thingies…tastes like starbursts! One is a chia protein chews and the other was B-12 chews. Them B’s sure did work!! (Along with my coffee..)
Next stop was New Seasons Market. Got me some fresh veggies for the week, and found me a gem! Udi’s now makes “flour” tortillas! (I’m so sick of corn tortillas…never really liked them anyway). These are a bit thicker than a normal gluten flour tortilla, but that’s maybe so they don’t crumble is my guess? They are mighty tasty!! Had burritos tonight. Mmmmm…. :]
I got me some flowers for home too…something to look forward to after long hours working.
I love arranging flowers…I actually wanted to be a florist when I was younger, but the long hours standing on a concrete floor was a turn off… (That and I loved drafting more…)
I also saw this cute bird cage flower pot. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my patio, so here’s my opportunity!
I really couldn’t shove much more in my car!! And my flowers were wilting in the 85° heat! (I’m sure it was hotter than that IN my car).
But here’s the finished product. Looks sooo much better!! I was Lovin the lemon yellow flowers! Specially the small ones. (Don’t remember what they are called). I got zinnias because my mom said they usually attract humming birds and butterfly’s. There was a butterfly I was following around the nursery to see where she landed…she must of been full, she didn’t land.
But here’s my beauties. :-}
So that was my fun day. I felt like I haven’t had a life recently so it was enjoyable to be out in the sun!
Oh. Almost forgot! Here are two more pics. The flower I didn’t get, but thought was cool looking. And the print I had to laugh! For one I realized I didn’t spell Lemonade right in my last post! And the other was the phrase in itself. I whole hearted agree!
