Shopping Shopping Shopping!

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

We decided to head to Lowe's the other day. And, of course, Grace (and Daddy) felt it absolutely necessary that they "try out" the tractors. Daddy dreamed of bigger decks and more horsepower while Grace focused on aesthetics... you know, color, seat comfort, how many cup holders it had... that's my girl.

We finally made it to the area we came for... the small appliances. Courtney and I have been using an ancient Posterior blender he bought back in the day of his Air Force run in Germany. While it's been a good blender, it's finally met it's match and has given up the ghost. So, we had Grace help us pick out our next blender... it was surprising how many and the range of prices Lowe's carries in blenders! We settled on the $39.99 Oster 16 speed blender w/ the brushed stainless base. I have to say, it's quite nice and the pitcher is wider which makes it easier for me to do my purees (for my Sneaky Chef cooking... but that's another post for a later day).

I decided to go on my next shopping trip on my own... Easter dress shopping for Grace. I've been checking out what's out there on ebay and Craigslist and places like that, but just wasn't finding what I wanted. But, I found it this past week. It is absolutely the most beautiful Easter dress I've seen... and I found it at TJ Maxx of all places! I have a white shrug she can wear with it when we're outside and it's cool. And we'll have to get some new shoes and A PURSE! She's gonna be so darn cute!

BTW, it's not an old "Posterior" blender we had, that's supposed to be "Osterizer"... stinkin' spell check...

Yes, darn that infernal software! ;-)

You know, I was wondering if you were casting aspersions on my trusty old blender there and trying to be cute about it. (For those playing at home, think of other words for 'Ancient' and 'Posterior'.)
