....this was my first stop this morning!
Last night we went to Cadillac to go look at a house. We are exploring the option of manufactured homes right now...and we are really in like with what we see. They are made really nice, and we can get so much more for the money, especially if we find a lot model that we like. We met Jamie (the sales guy) in Traverse City at 4:30 and followed he and his wife to the lot in Cadillac...we got about half way there and his car broke down (and he knows nothing about cars...so, he was lucky that I have a hubby that was happy to help out!) Ended up that their trans fluid was leaking...heavily...so, they hopped in the Avalanche with us and we continued on our journey!
We walked thru four homes (I think) and talked about all of them...asked lots of questions, saw a lot of things that we liked.
As we were walking back to the truck, we noticed that the air in the rear passenger tire was quite low....SO, we stopped at the nearest gas station to fill it up...about 15 miles down the road, it was REALLY REALLY low...so, we pulled over in another gas station and Dustin changed the tire (with very little help from our NON mechanic salesman, who did bend over to move the tire and rip a giant hole down the center of his pants!!) ANYWAY....soon we were back home, and had lots of paper work to look over. It was an eventful evening!
I stopped in to Discount Tire and dropped off my tire, and then headed to the mall.
I found a couple of dresses that might work for next weekends wedding (Matt and Amber). My wonderful MIL is picking out a dress for me in WB too...BUT, just in case it doesn't work out, I wanted to have another option...besides, they were half off at JC Penny...it was a great sale, and I can always take them back if I don't need them!
Oakley is giving me his approval...
So, now that I have these cute dresses....I need a white sweater, just in case it is cool next weekend...one would think that every girl would have a nice white sweater in her closet, just in case, but...NOT ME! and let me tell ya, they aren't easy to find!!!
I ended up finding one at TJ Maxx...along with a couple other things!
A cute orange sweater, and a black short sleeve blouse!
Dustin also has been NEEDING some new polos and t-shirts. His polos are starting to look pretty sad...so, I found a few shirts for him...we'll know better tonight if they are going to work or not. Hopefully I did an okay job picking them out!
I made a quick trip to Starbucks to get my new favorite drink. Shaken Iced Tea and Lemonade, made with Passion Tea)
Every thing ended up being okay with my tire, it had a leaking valve stem, so they fixed that and put it back on for me...!
I've been promising some pictures of some of my new collections...and antique finds...and finally, here they are!
I'm working on collecting some drinking glasses (most likely to be use for the great new tea drink mom and I discovered at Starbucks last weekend! (and that I treated myself to today!) more on that later...we're going to find a copy cat recipe!)
But, here is what I have so far...I'm loving the thick glass, and the fun designs!
I'm also finding some great new coffee/tea mugs....I realize that this style does not hold much, but they are so darn cute...and stack up inside one another...LOVE them!
and...just a couple more fun finds...just because!
