Okay, Jon and I had WAY too much fun shopping this week. We had an awesome mothers day antique shopping in Galena. Unfortunately everything was so expensive we left without purchasing anything. =( We stopped at the coolest place on the way home outside of stockton. We found this really cool antique pie safe that we decided to purchase and use to set our tv on.
Then yesterday we went to the "Pec Thing," which is pretty much a huge flea market. I insisted that we bring the stroller along for Ava and Owen, but of course Jon always knows best. We weren't there ten minutes and next thing I know Jon is forking over $40 and buying this cool old GTO pull wagon. I looked at him and said, "didn't your mother ever tell you not to buy the first thing you see?" He replied, "I was tired of holding the kids."
Well, it turns out Jon was actually right. It was a great decision not to bring the stroller because after the flea market our next stop was Stillman Valley. I am a huge craigslist user and I found this AWESOME antique dry sink. (Had we brought the stroller we wouldn't have been able to fit this in) We plan on converting this into a wet sink once we remodel our upstairs bathroom.
On top of everything we purchased, we placed a bid on a 2007 Pontiac G6 at a local bank. Its a repossessed vehicle with only 51,000 miles. Thats like brand stinkin new to me. I have NEVER owned anthing under 110,000. Last I knew we were the high bidders so we will wait and see if they call us on Monday. I think Jon and I got our shopping fix for the next 6 months!=)

Okay, I should be excited my little baby O is turning 1 in 5 days... but it makes me sad to think that this little boy that I rocked to sleep every night from the time he was born is eventually going to be soooo independent just like his sister. Maybe its time for baby number 3? LOL....I don't think my husband would be too happy about that idea. Its been a crazy busy year! Lots of Dr. appointments for little Owen, but overall, I am sooooooo amazed at how good God is. Ava and Owen are just sooooooo darn special I can't believe they are mine!
