This weekend I was reminded that floating in the pool is just shy of heavenly. The weather is officially sweltering here in AZ meaning that even standing in the shade may burn ya ;)! But there is this magical blue, wet thing in the middle of our yard that somehow makes the temperature seem less like an oven and more like awesomeness. In fact, I even experienced goosebumps when I first stepped in. Goosebumps in 110 degree weather?! That IS magical!
If you’ve been following my CTM for any length of time you know that I am a HUGE fan of a good deal. Thrift stores, craigslist, ebay, the outlet mall…I am ALL over it! It’s just such a great feeling knowing that you got something awesome at a sweet price. Well today I am giddy over my latest Craigslist find. A $25 turquoise/green and honey wood coffee table. Eeekkk! I LOVE it! I wasn’t quite sure where I would use it in the house, but I just couldn’t pass it up. It has now found a home in our living room in front of the tv where it fits perfectly. Heck. YES!
Speaking of new toys, I finally got an Ipad! No, not the NEW iPad or even the iPad 2. I got a killa’ deal on a 1st generation iPad (I told ya I love a deal!). This was my first ebay purchase. Gosh, that whole auction thing really gets the adrenaline pumping! I had bid on several iPads and got outbid almost immediately. When I went to check on this one, there was less than 30 seconds left before the auction ended and I had been outbid by $5. In those last 30 seconds my heart started racing as I thought “should I bid? ahhhh I don’t have long to decide! what if I don’t win? what if I DO? Okay, here I go…..! Ahhhh I WON!!!’. As exciting as that was, today was a bit more exciting as I got to rip open the box and play with my new toy. I LOVE it!
Only a couple more weeks until I head back to WI! I can’t wait to see some old clients/friends, hang with my fam and enjoy the under-100 degree weather! I always like to read on the plane (although I’ve never had an iPad before!). Any suggestions on some good reads? I’d love your input!
Happy Monday! xo stacy
