Girls Night Out(s)

Friday AND Saturday night I got to go out and enjoy some 'me' time with a bunch of girls. It is always nice to get out of the house and Trent is always nice enough to watch the kids anytime!

Friday night I went to Kimmy's Nickel Auction. This was an amazing experience. If you are like me, you have no idea what this is. A bunch of girls get together and sell things they don't want/use anymore. And you bid in 5 cent increments. It was awesome! Take a look at all the stuff I came home with for only $3.80. Amazing isn't it? What really took my price up was that big pad of scrapbook paper. I purchased that for $4.25. Got into a little bidding war for that one. And if you are wondering how I only spent $3.80 after I said the paper was $4.25, well, I sold a purse and a pair of shoes and made $1.05.
Here is a list of my loot: 2 shirts for Oakley, pullups, Revitalift, Garnier deep conditioner, scrapbook paper pack, 2 picture frames, glass Christmas tree, princess coloring toy, vegetable cutter, and a bag to bring it all home in.


Saturday night I went out with Kristen and Alyssa for a much needed girls night. It had been a while since the 3 of us had been together. We went to Chili's where we ate way too much food and then we went and checked out Alyssa's amazing Lining Room. These girls are some of the best and I love how close we have gotten over the past year. I am already looking forward to seeing you both again!

Kristen (Piggy), Alyssa (Toots), and Me (Stinky). We earned these nicknames at girls camp. And I won't share how we earned them to the whole wide web world...

I'm so glad you came. It really is surprising what you end up going home with. I never expect to buy anything, but somehow always do.
