"Just Between Friends" Sale

Is there even anyone still reading here?? Other than my mom? and Gary?? I hope so. But I know I have been a bad blogger. Hopefully I will have time this week to catch up.

I am tagging tagging tagging for the local "Just Between Friends" sale. Remember last year when I my mom spent a butt load of money on a TON of clothes? So they wore maybe 10% of all that stuff. What was I thinking buying 3 month old babies jeans, huh?? And why did they need 8 pairs? I def got all caught up in the hunt for bargains. Plus, Abby started wearing a size above Olivia so all the matching clothes were pretty much useless. I SO did not need all those clothes since they mostly lived in their very comfy, warm sleepers last winter. Have I learned my lesson? Hmmm...maybe?

SO...I am tagging all those clothes from last year hoping that someone else will be as, I mean, SMART to jump on these great deals.

We are also selling all our baby stuff; swings (Oh, how I loved thee), bath seats, bouncers, Bumbos, excersaucers, walkers, bottles, blankets, car seats. All things baby because...

::big deep breath::

We're done.

We decided that financially, emotionally, physically, mentally our family is just right.
And if not then we can buy everything again, right?

This called for me to open tubs of Zachary's old clothes I was saving in case of a boy baby. I am letting a lot of these things go (yay, me!) So needless to say, we have a ton of things to sell...a TON! 375 tags to be exact so far. And that doesn't even count the groups of things, that is just the number of tags.

OH, and I am selling 2 strollers, so I am only a crazy owner of 6 strollers now. But really 2 don't count since they are single umbrella strollers, right? So we really only have 4 serious strollers. That's not too many, is it? And we would only have 3 if Gary and I could agree on which side by side stroller we want to keep. So let's knock that on down to 3 really. 3? Not bad at all!!

Ok, we really bird walked there, didn't we.

I also paid for sign printing for the sale so technically I am a volunteer. That means I get to shop a full day earlier than anyone else. There is only 1 group going in before me. Aww yeah! Can you say great deals??

I am making my own list of things to buy at the sale. I am amazed at how much they are already pretending. They love on dolls and mix things in bowls with spoons. They even pretend to feed us and each other! I was not prepared for them to do that quite yet. So those of you out there that have experience with older girls; what should I be looking for as far as toys? What toys are favorites for 1-2 year old girls? Zachary was into his trains and tractors at their age so I need a little help here.

And here are a few cute pictures of the girls. They got some new wheels. And before you go thinking this is just another "stroller" type thing, it's NOT.

They love it.
I know it doesn't look like it, but they really do.
It was nap time.

Aww, how cute! I'm consigning at a big sale in a few weeks, so I'm with you tagging up a bunch of clothes.

Still reading, too! \

I am trying to get rid of some stuff as well. It's overwhelming and who has time to organize a big yard sale?! Geesh!

My girls LOVE their wagon. We have the scaled-down version without the canopy and we take a ride in it every single night.
