Out and About

Tomorrow will mark my being off from work eleven days. I have really enjoyed my time off, have accomplished alot, rested quite a bit and these last couple of days have been WILD! Yesterday I was in my frenzy mode and today, well was of free spirit and a do what you want to do day. So I called my mom and said "lets go shopping". So away we went. We drove to Searcy which is about a thirty minute drive and the rest is history............

First stop. The Cookie Basket. Their food is wonderful and the cookie they give you is always the highlight (especially the Lemon Iced ones).

Mom had their lunch special. Today was poppy seed chicken with green beans, and a side salad, plus a yummy homemade roll.

I had the chicken honey mustard salad, which consists of leafy green lettuce topped with baked chicken, grapes, carrots, tomatoes, walnuts, celery, homemade croutons and homemade honey mustard dressing.

Then it was off to Bath & Body Works big sale!!!

I LOVE these plug-ins. I use Coconut Lime Verbena, that is my favorite. They have this sale twice a year. Right after Christmas and the first week in June. It has taken me a couple of years, but I have it down to a fine art. It takes 18 plug-ins every six months to keep our house smelling yummy! The regular price is $12 for two and on sale they are $5 for two. WHAT A DEAL. DON'T MISS OUT.

Does anyone love Big Lots as much as I do! Really they have some GREAT deals!

This was the big purchase today. Freezer pops for the grands, some yummy French Vanilla creamer for Mimi and whole black pepper and sea salt in their own little grinders for Pop to use grilling. A whole $5 worth. Again, WHAT A DEAL!

Back home for a little pampering.

This is Kim the pamperer & me getting all the attention. Ahh!

And finally, back home to the one I love. What a way to end the perfect day!

Hey Ms. Becky! Your blog is so cute. I need to try out the nail place at the Village Mall. I looked at the older posts on your blog, and your living room and backyard are beautiful! Does Mr. Alvin want to come build me some stuff for my backyard??? HA!!
