Friday Fun!

Yeah I know it's Sunday, but I am finally getting around to posting about Friday.

I worked in the morning, and then had the afternoon off...which is always a GREAT way to start a weekend.

But in order to tell you about Friday, I gotta back up for just a second to a few days earlier....

Tuesday evening I was watching "18 Kids and Counting", and in one episode they went to this mega consignment sale to shop for baby things. After the episode was over, I thought to myself "self, I wonder if there is anything like that in Portland..."

So, I turned on my laptop and googled "consignment sales in portland oregon", and guess what I found?

There was a GIANT one, that only happens twice a year, happening THIS VERY WEEKEND!!

Can you say Sweetness?


Dave's parents were already coming up on Friday for some fun evening plans we had, and I asked them to come a little early so my mom-in-law could go shopping with me.

It was AMAZING. There was SO much stuff, I pretty much needed a nap when we were done.

The highlight of my purchases was this:The Double Snap-N-Go stroller. These things retail for $100. I got mine used and in GREAT condition for $40.

Say it with me again...


I have a strong feeling it will come in really handy when the babies are teeny and in their infant carriers. It's just a shell of a stroller, meant for their carseats (which my mom generously offered to purchase for us - thanks mom!) to just pop right in there and go! Hooray!!

And just in case we hadn't had enough fun shopping, we had an even more fun evening ahead....

That's right. We saw The David Crowder Band in concert!!!

It was an amazing night of Worship, with great music and fun entertainment. They put on a SUPER show!It's too early for me to feel the babies move yet, but I have a feeling they were really enjoying the music too!! =)

Happy Sunday all.

I am a frequent reader, sometimes commenter on your blog. I haven't checked in here for a while and was moved to tears to read/hear your news! After years of infertility I know what it feels like to learn you are pregnant.
I know that we haven't ever met, I don't even remember how I stumbled onto your blog. I do know, however, that we serve the same God!
Rejoicing with you and praying for safety of your little ones,

Yea for consignment sales! I stood in line for over 4 hours to check out at the HUGE one (like as big as the one the Duggar's went to [yes, I was watching, too]) we had here in August.

And I'll do it again in March! =)

Yea for the SNG, too! =)

I live in the same town as the Duggars, and that consignment sale they went to is awesome. I totally racked up. I'm glad you found one in your area to go to-it helps a lot, especially I imagine with two!
