Indulgence

I had a really interesting week. There were several very fun things and several very trying things. In the end though, it was a week of indulgence! First, of course, was my ultrasound and learning we were having a boy. From that prompted a small little shopping trip to Target. They had a bunch of clothes on clearance for 75% off and I realized a new indulgence that I will now have, matching outfits for my little guys. Here are some I got this week:The day after my shopping spree, I learned that Target had marked a ton of toys on clearance, 75% off as well. I hit this clearance last year and got all of Abe's birthday and Christmas, plus some other toys for presents for really inexpensive. We rushed out the door and next thing you know, my sewing room is now Santa's workshop! Now, I have to find room to store all our toys. Our boys are going to be spoiled for birthdays and Christmas this year!

My favorite find was the Little People set, only $7.50!!

Finally, Abe got a really nasty cold a day ago and has been pretty miserable. I woke up this morning and found he'd shared his cold with me, only I can't take any medication because I'm pregnant. Fun. Today, after Ken let me take a nice, long nap, I had my last indulgence of the week, I made Fruity Pebbles treats. Yum! Fruity Pebbles were always a favorite cereal around the house growing up and I'd always look forward to Grandma Bodily making them for our 24th of July celebration. It was a perfect little treat and I admit, I've eaten way more than my share.

I LOVE the matching outfits! so cute! Thanks for getting us some sweet toys too! I went to our Target and they had nothing! I wish I could have helped when you were sick but I am sure you don't want to catch what we have

Those boys are going to be the cutest little guys around! And the most spoiled. Sheesh! I have yet to partake in Target's amazing clearance this season, but I plan to. And I've never had Fruity Pebbles Treats, but I can imagine how they taste, and I'm very jealous!

I didn't know you are a Bodily. That means we are related. All Bodilys come from the same line and I am a Bodily. You got some great loot. We use the after Christmas sales to get Asher's b-day stuff since it is just after.

Andrea...I can't believe Barlow has not every introduced you to the beauty of Fruity Pebble treats. Shame on him.

Davis Family said...

Yes, shame on Barlow.

Thanks for passing along the good deal info to us! Can't wait to see those boys in the outfits!

Aren't you just a thrify little booger?!? (that's a compliment) and I remember Fruity Pebbles Treats. It wasn't just your favorite cereal as a child my dear. I hope you and Abe are feeling better soon.

Fruity Pebbles Treats, or even marshmellow treats, ok any treats. We have now made it a week treat free. I am Jealous. I too went to Target and got all the Grandkids presents for a good price.

Rachel said...

You are one heck of an awesome shopper! Way to go...now it makes me want to get all stocked up now too but I probably missed all our sales! Darn it! And I hope you and Abe get better soon. It is rough when they are sick and you get sick too!! Hang in there!

Matching outfits are the BEST. I match my boys all the time. Even if it isn't an exact match, they are usually in the same colors.

Charlotte said...

I love matching outfits!! Andrea has never had fruity pebble treats? Barlow and Brenda should be shot. Elise has been making them in our house for years now.

Kim,

Neither Cathi (my wife) nor I know you other than all the great things your in-laws have told me...but may I say that you are on the Top 10 list of Cathi's favorite people all because you both have a frugality obsession!

We love the name Abraham...what a cute little guy. Good luck on your second pregnancy.

Take care,

Jerry (Ken's cousin in TX)
