Last night and today I am attending the ND Grazing Lands Coalition annual workshop and meeting. Learning with these folks is a dream come true for me.
But yesterday afternoon, whilst I was in the BIG city, I hit my favorite kids re-sale store for a huge sale. 50% off and then I had a coupon for an additional 20% off my entire purchase. Yes indeed!
Kiddo1 got three pants and three coordinating shirts. Kiddo3 got a new shirt, two new pants and a new dress. Kiddo2 got new, tags-still-on-them, John Deere lace-up cowboy boots. I paid $8 for them. They're $60 in the store. The are a little big, but should fit this cowboy when his current boots become too small.
But the biggest score was a pair of bright pink cowgirl boots in Kiddo1's size. They even have flowers on them. I called her to tell her what I found. She squealed and said, "Oh Mama, I have been dreaming about something like that!"
I know, sweet girl. And mama got 'em for $5.50. And she's been dreaming about that.
