What can you buy for $1.00?

Today was just a normal Wal-M*art day...UNTIL, a saleslady walked past me and let me know about a "wall of shoes" for $1.00. Poor big boy L only got one pair (the above shown for $1 Nerf brand). Below are all of B girl's....

These two black pair were NOT $1, but the ones on the left were $8 (Faded Glory) and the ones on the right were $4 (Danskin). (seriously)

These four little beauties were $1.00 each.......I couldn't believe it and they're all really cute. If sis doesn't like them for school, then she can play dress up with them. A girl can NEVER have too many shoes, right. (no duh)
I don't have any clue if all Wal-M*rt stores are having this dollar sale or not, but I would say that it's definitely worth checking out.

{Being Grateful and Embarrassed in one day}

My friends, I have lovely news. My friends, I have embarrassing news.

I HAVE literally been obsessed/consumed with trying to find the "perfect, great deal" of a stroller. WHY? There are several reasons that I could go on and on about, but I will not. I won't do this because I'm completely embarrassed by my behavior. Obsessing over something materialistic is NOT a good thing. THINGS don't matter. I wasted two precious days glancing at the internet every time I got a chance, when I could have been doing other things......chores in my home, making an art project with my two year old.....whatever.
Please, don't waste your thoughts on "things"..they don't matter, they don't make us better people, they don't bring us lifelong happiness.

My lovely news is this, I called two friends today. I asked the first friend to be on the lookout for me a used stroller to purchase (she owns a Stroller Fit franchise), I then called another friend and asked her if she possibly had an old jogging stroller (she has four kids and loves working out) AND SHE DID!!!!! Woo Hoo, best part is........she GAVE it to me and it was FREE and it works just fine and dandy (it sort of pulls to the left, but that's beside the point..he he).

The stroller is "shabby chic", and I appreciate it very much. I will use my "well-loved" stroller and if a great deal comes along that I just can't pass up, I will get a new one. End of story. No more obsessing though. Until then, we will take our family walks/runs/bike rides and enjoy every second of it.
What is it that you tend to obsess over? Is it consuming your days and your thoughts?

Riches are meaningless

1Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

Grace be with you,

Obsession and a date

Two things:

I have an obsession recently with Ebay........I CANNOT stop looking at Bob strollers. I WILL buy one OH SO VERY SOON, but I want a good deal on a slightly used or new Bob. (don't we all want good deals) IF you have any ideas or would like to sell me your Bob, let me know Joe. (*thanks*)
