Summer is here!

Home Goods

Retail Therapy

ahhhhhhh . . . . nothing like a little retail therapy to lift your spirits! “Home Goods” is probably my all time favorite place to shop for unique and fair priced treasures. We have a new “Home Goods” about an hour away that recently opened.  (There is also one about 10 minutes from my house.)  I met my daughter up at the new one, did a little shopping and took her to lunch.  It was funny because I was telling her how great this was, she’s out of college now, on her own, working full time and we were just 2 women out having a good time together. When the bill came at lunch and I paid, Amie said “whewwww, I was afraid your little 2 women shopping talk meant you weren’t going to pay for lunch . . . besides you ARE still my mother.” Geeze Louise! LOL She just cracks me up sometimes!

Summer weather is here and the Outdoor Concerts have begun. We have a few venues that host free concerts during the summer. Just grab your camping chair and some food. Always a good time with friends.

Note to self: Next time you (me) decide to put together a ping pong table by yourself . . . . wear gloves, good gloves!!! OUCH . . 20 screws into the 52 needed and a huge blister . . . the directions said NOT to use the electric drill . . . realllyyyyyy!!  And the last 32 screws  . . . . still on the floor!

  1. I agree…Home Goods is the BEST! Can’t wait to come see you in July! I am sure we will manage to squeeze in a shopping trip or two. PLUS you owe me a summer concert and dinner @ 3 Margarita’s!!!


  2. I am with you on Home Goods. I used to travel a lot and I had to visit a TJ’s in every city. I find the coolest things at the best prices. People always ask, “Where did you get that?
    See you at the summer concerts!
