Joy to the World

Yesterday morning, bright and early, Carrie (the secretary in our office) and I went shopping at some yard sales. This has always been one of my my favorite past times, along with antiquing. (What can I say, I'm my grandfather's girl). I was so thrilled when I found out that Clint shared the same hobby. However, he hasn't been able to go since he works Saturday mornings. I was delighted on Friday when I saw Carrie circling ads in the newspaper announcing yard sales. Since she knows this area far better than I do, she seemed like and ideal partner. (And she loves a bargain like me!) I always go with something in mind to hunt. This time I was on the look-out for a Christmas tree. Amazingly, 5 out of the 15 stops had some sort of tree for sale. However, most of them were either worn out or over priced (one was $85, HELLO, it's a yard sale!!). Anyway, I had just about given up hope until we stopped at our final sale. There, in the original box, was our Christmas tree priced at a reasonable $10. (No bargaining necessary!) I'm so excited to welcome our first tree into the family. If there is 2 things this girl loves it's Christmas and a good bargain!
