So first off, thank you to all my family and friends who made my birthday so special! It was a great day! This is just a quick update, and I will post more on this later. And I have a lot of posts coming up about the house! Get excited! ;P
Saturday I stopped by Re-Store after not having been there in several weeks. The last few trips I've came home empty handed. This was a different story though, after making it about half way down the first isle I saw this. A Herman Miller office chair. I wasn't too keen on the brown upholstery as I was walking up to it, but that immediately changed when I saw the price. $1. It actually had a bunch of $2 price tags on it along with the yellow $1 sale tag. Which I'm pretty sure means this has at least been there for a week. I guess it was just my lucky day, it even had a dime under the cushion which brought the total after tax to $0.96. It's no where near perfect shape, the rubber trim around the edges was off on one side. Lucy and I decided to go ahead and fix that tonight so I grabbed Lucy's hair dryer (to soften up the rubber) and hot glue gun. About ten minutes later the trim was back on.
Last week there was a small carnival at the end of the street, so obviously Bryant and I decided to spend part of our Friday night "enjoying" the sights and smells. haha So here are a few photos from the fun night and oh so delicious funnel cake. Yum!
My favorite part of the night by far was while Bryant and I were standing in line to get a funnel cake, this little gem of a conversation happened.
Me: Do you need anything special to make funnel cakes?
Bryant: [In a very serious tone] Yes...carney hands.
Bwahahahahaha! I couldn't breathe, I was laughing so hard!
The Coppola family is no doubt an extremely talented family. I have always wanted to try Coppola wine and luckily we got a bottle of Sofia Riesling for a house warming gift from Bryant's family. Now normally I'm not a huge fan of Riesling, but this wine was delicious and we will definitely get it again!
