to recharge during the weekend. By Tuesday, I already felt like I'd been through an entire week. Ack.
But besides a lack of energy, this has been a great week. At the beginning of the week, our kitchen pantry was featured on Apartment Therapy. This led to a large influx of first-time visitors to the blog. The computer
dork in me got a great deal of excitement out of refreshing my blog stats to see the number of pageviews growing rapidly!
I completed the last (I think?) project for baby girl's nursery, but I haven't been home during daylight hours any day this week to actually get a photo of it until today. Here's a sneak peak!
Wednesday I finally used a gift certificate I received for Christmas for a prenatal massage. I had been holding on to it until I got to a point where I felt like I really needed it, and boy that was definitely this week! It was amazing and relaxing, exactly what I needed to get through the secondhalf of the week.
Thursday was a large consignment/yard sale at our local Y.M.C.A. - "KinderMarket". There were tons of great deals on all sort of baby/kid items. We were pretty much able to round out our list of items we still
needed. We got a Chicco stroller for $60, a bouncer for $15, and a play mat for $10. These three items alone combine for $300 new. I also picked up more pretty little outfits in basically new condition that averaged about $1.25 each! Luckily, my BFF volunteered to help with the sale and had a guest pass that allowed me to get in early. I was able to start shopping at 4:30. It opened to expectant moms at 5:00 and the general public at 6:00. I got there at 4:30, and it was around 5:55 when I was done. They had a police officer at the door for when they opened to the general public, and the line stretched from the back of the Y all the way to the front desk. I was so glad that I checked out and got out of there before they opened to the general public, but I have to share that it felt awkward walking by all those women with my huge bag full of finds. I felt like I was getting the evil eye from all of them (of course, in my head I was saying "na na na na na I got all the good stuff").
Tomorrow I think everything is 50% off at the Kindermarket sale, so I may go back and see what is still available. There were a lot of items I put back because I thought they were overpriced.
