My weekend...

In a nutshell!

The little farm has been pummeled by these little missiles all weekend long. At times it sounded like hail or firecrackers. They hit the roof of the house, the store, the old chicken coop and our poor cars. The weird thing is that I sort of like it. It reminds me of thunder, a good storm without the rain.

In between acorn bombings we spent the weekend relaxing and running errands. Saturday afternoon we saw Nights in Rodanthe. Bring tissues. We dined at Red Lobster. Cheese biscuits. Then we hit Target and Sam's Club. And you would think that shopping at Target could not get any better but they have these new plastic carts that are wonderful- a nice smooth ride around my favorite isles. I don't have to tell you that Sunday=football. And from our wonderful seats on the couch we beat the Packers! And this oak tree beat the heck out of the house...


This week I have a lot of thrifty treasures to show you. I will be taking pictures tonight. I found some great stuff at Goodwill and my favorite thrift store and mom dropped off some goodies for me on Saturday morning.

And I can't wrap this up without sending a huge CONGRATS to my little brother- star of Friday's post. Saturday night he won the karaoke competition at the Virginia State Fair! Go little bro! You so deserve it!

I once got nailed in the back of my head by an acorn. I hit the deck, seriously thinking I'd been shot. Those things can be dangerous!

Why does Nicholas Sparks WRECK me every single time with those movies and books of his? Just when I think I'm strong enough to take it, I leave bawling my eyes out ... and love every second of it. I'm such a sap and romantic at heart! The way he writes about relationships is how I feel about Target. I LOVE Target ; )

Great picture of the acorns! A couple of years ago, Ash and David stood behind a bush and threw tons of acorns at Josh as he was mowing grass. He was about 15 then, and he came in the house almost in tears, part pain, part humiliation! LOL!

The post on your brother was great! He is a hottie! :) Congrats on his karaoke win at the state fair! ~Rhonda
