thrifty goodness.

I am very pleased to announce that i bought my very first paint by number this weekend! April, Cousin Ashley and myself all went to the Peddler's Mall Sunday afternoon, and we were not let down! Oh no, it treated us well! In the past i haven't found much there, and the things that i have found weren't very reasonably priced. Not for my pocketbook anyways. We all ended up getting a few things a piece, and i think we were all quite happy with our purchases.
As i mentioned, i bought my first paint by number painting this weekend. The second i saw it, my feet just darted in that direction. I don't think my brain even had time to process what was going on. I was completely estatic! I've been looking for one for so long. I couldn't be happier with this little guy.
It's price tag was $7 dollars. I thought that was pretty fair. To be honest though, it could have cost $20, and i probably still would have bought it. I was just that excited.
The paint by number wasn't the only thing i bought though. I also scored this little beauty. A giant Chenille blanket!
I'd say that it fits a queen size bed. My bed is only a full, and it hangs off right to the floor all around the bed. I thought it was so pretty, and i wanted it immediately because my Nanny has a blanket just like this. So, i was instantly in love. I was really excited to show Nathan, but he seemed less than thrilled about it. He is now referring to it as the Granny blanket, but i don't care. I love it. Let me tell you, it was a piece of work. It was covered in ugly fuzz balls, so i spent about 3 hours de-fuzzing it. By the time i was done, i had a fuzz ball about the size of a cantaloupe. No joke.
It's price tag was a mere $6.99. Who could pass up a deal like that? Not this girl. That's who.

In other news, Nathan and myself just got back from watching Get Him to the Greek. Over all, i would say it was fairly decent. There is a lot of debauchery going on in that movie. I think P. Diddy's(is that still his name? i really don't know.) part was my favorite. He was pretty funny. I'd recommend it for you folks who need a good laugh.

That'll be it for tonight. I'll talk with you cuties later!


  1. That paint by numbers painting is really cute! And the way that you set it up is even cuter. Were you looking for one that had already been painted or one in general? They have some good ones on Amazon and I've bought a few at Wal-Mart, though theirs are all pretty much of animals.

  2. i usually like the ones that have already been painted. but, i do like the ones i've seen that you need to paint. i actually looked at some at wal mart last night, but they only had wolves. :| i'll check amazon though.
