Saturday, March 8, 2008
I just had to share our silly Saturday with you. My sister Emily had brought some boots up to me last week she thought I would like, but they didn't fit, so I put them in the pile to send to DI. They were a short black boot with a spiked heel, every 8 year olds dream. So Emily quickly deemed them hers, and wore them constantly for 3 days straight. She was so in love with them I was afraid she was going slip them in her backpack, and wear them at school. So, while she was at school, I finally took the bag of stuff to DI, including the boots. Today we had an appt. to take the van in for a detail so we could sell it. The car wash is right next door to Deseret Industries. Blake decides that we haven't been for a while and we need to go check out the "deals". Haven't finally gotten rid of my bag of stuff for DI, I was less than thrilled to go buy it back, but we hauled the whole family in anyway. The first deal we found was a pair of "Born" shoes for $5, they are identical to the pair Blake paid WAAAAAY more for, but a size smalled. But, because they were $5, we had to take them. Then Emily comes running up with a great gem she just had to have, and lo and behold it was the same pair of black, spike heel boot I had just given to DI earlier in the week!! Both Blake and I were doubled over laughing. After that Jack found this pair of "Incredible Hulk" fists he HAD to have. (Everyone took turns hitting each other with them for the remaining shopping trip.) We found a 25 cent book about a flying school bus for Sam, and traded the spiked boots for a cute Gymboree dress for Emily. Oh yeah, and I didn't get left out either. There was a great helmet, perfect for 4 Wheeling that we couldn't pass up. I know, what a bunch of hillbillies!!!
