Shrewd Shopper or Hopeless Hoarder?

So here's an example of the difference between me and my husband. We were out shopping and I spotted these cute silicone kitchen sets.  They're the kind that can handle high heat.
Then I saw the price.
.49¢...They were only .49¢!  There were four sets left on the rack and I took great pleasure in buying all of them.
Chris did not understand why I would buy all 4. At that price I probably would have bought 10 sets!

I'm using one, I'll give a set to my son John David for his apartment, keep one in reserve and give the last one to my mom or neighbor.

Would you have bought 4 or more of these because of the extreme mark down or would you have just been 1 and done?

Just Springtime in Michigan

I was so excited to see my little daffodils pop their head up on Monday.
Then I woke up in the middle of the night with the power out. We had gotten about 2 inches of snow. Poor daffodils.
And poor me! Our power didn't come on until about 2 yesterday afternoon.

Chloe woke me up to let me know she did not appreciate the cold house.  It got down to 53 degrees in here!

I found a cool 1980's throwback to keep me warm. Please excuse my derp face!
Thank you Merino sheep for giving me this lovely snug sack to keep warm in.

Finally I have to show you the area of our power outage as diagrammed by DTE Energy.

My house is located near the tip end, lol.

A Major Life Accomplishment

For the first time in my 46 years I have finished a lip balm before I lost it.

I figure why not celebrate life's little victories!
