Well, we are back from the weekend. Josh returned on Friday and we enjoyed some hot wings together and walked around the Promenade Shops for a while. We found a few good deals. He worked Saturday for a half shift and then we had a bowling get together with the old gang. There is a trophy that goes to the winner each time this group gets together and Josh had the high score this time so he got the trophy! After that we went to O'Malley's for more wings and karaoke. Sunday we went to church and then to lunch with the family for Father's Day. We took a poster of Josh's dad with us in honor of Father's Day since he is out of the country. It was fun!

After that we decided to shop around, we have been trying to find a lighter weight comforter for our bed for the summer months. Our duvet that we had been using was supposed to be good for all seasons but it was too warm for summer! So in the meantime we have been using a nice IAFF fleece blanket. Very classy, I know. J So we had looked at many stores…Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target, Wal-Mart, Linens & Things, TJ Maxx Home Goods, Ross, etc. and found nothing. We were about to head home and we thought let's look at World Market because they usually have things in the colors we like. We were looking for something blue, any shade really. So we looked around and saw that they had all the bedding on clearance at 50% off. This is looking good! We saw a sample (6x6 inch square)of exactly what we were looking for but they didn't have it in stock. Not so good! Then we saw a bed on display that had a blue quilt on it! We were looking at it and talking to each other saying, "Oh I wish they had one we could buy, this would be great!" "Oh, what a bummer that they don't have any more!" Then a sales person walked up to us and asked if we needed any help and we said well do you happen to have any more of these anywhere that we could buy? She said no, but you can buy that one. So it turns out we bought this wonderful quilt that would have been $99 for only $44 since it was the display. YEAH! I love a good deal! It looks great on our red bed!

Then we broke down and bought a little portable A/C unit because our house becomes a little oven in all this sunshine! Not on sale but we had a coupon and put it to work last night. It is very nice!

Happy Monday!
