Happy Monday everyone! I'm not quite sure why I feel so chipper today but I'm going to accept it and just go with it! :)
Friday: After work, I rode the motorcycle home, let the dog out, changed into flip flops and then met up with my friend Erin at the mall for some End of Week Retail therapy. I got 2 pair of shorts at Maurice's for $24.50 each and saved over $13. One was a size 11/12 and the other pair was a size 7/8!!! Not sure how that happens but they were different brands and that's all I can think of to explain it. Then, we went to Old Navy and they were having a deal for in store card carriers for $2 tanks. I got 6 or 7 tank in different colors, a running tank top, an orange bathing suit cover up, and a pair of cotton shorts for $43. I saved $56 at Old Navy! WOOO savings!!
Saturday: It started early and was a pretty busy morning. I was up, showered and out the door before 8am. I picked up Laura to go to the Farmer's Market and did a little detour to check on a friend's kitty. We stopped at Starbucks on the way and I got my tea fix for the morning. Then I spent all of my $13 in my pocket. $12 on carbs from Wheatberries bakery and $1 on 2 little zucchinis. Then we stopped at Winco for greek yogurt and I ended up with some corn, tomatoes, a coconut and some chicken boobs.
I dropped Laura off at home and went home and got busy doing stuff around the house. I got an adaptor to hook up my garden hose to my kitchen sink and filled up Heif's baby pool to play in since the weather is finally getting nice.
And then I hung out the load of clothes that I put in the washer before I left that morning. You might think that hanging your clothes is a bit Hillbilly-ish but I like to think that I'm being eco-friendly b/c I'm using my solar dryer and you CAN'T beat the smell of clothes from on the line! AMAZING!!!
While I was at ACE Hardware getting my hose attachments, I also got 2 new tomato plants to replace the pepper plants that died on me. I also got some herbs too; chive, rosemary and thyme.

Then, I saw my old boss and he gave me my present from watching his house/animals a few weeks ago. I got some sweets from South Carolina! I guess they are famous for their pralines down there. I had to have a bite of each and they were amazing! I tried having another bite after I had put them back into the freezer and I think I'm lucky that I still have my front teeth attached! Oops!

|The coconut that I bought. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. Suggestions?|

Sunday: I had all intentions of getting up early and running and then decided that since I was up early on Saturday that I needed a "sleep in" day. That turned out to me being a vegetable all day. I did put on my suit and tried to change my color from blinding white to not-so-blinding white but that didn't work so well b/c after a half hour on each side I was sweating buckets and relocated to the couch. I was so lazy that I had Fiber One cereal and greek yogurt with blueberries for dinner. I did cut up half of my giant watermelon to have in my lunch today! And I did water the garden and took out the garbage/ recycling. I guess I wasn't totally worthless yesterday.
Do you have any idea of how I can prepare my coconut?
**Just so you know, I am extremely humored by some of the things that people have used to find my blog. Some examples are: "big mom breasts" and "miss usa nerd". I'm not sure about the first one b/c I'm not a real life human mom but I am a fur-mom. I guess people search for some crazy things! Yipes!
