Croc Craze

I know that you log on your computer just to read what I did today. I know that it makes you smile and feel fulfilled that you can get a glimpse into the life of Julie. HA! Some days I am so bored that I can't even think of anything to write-but not today.

You see, today I found a sale!
You know how we Skutt girls love a sale!

Saturday night when Stephen and I were on our double date, (Did I tell you about that?) Well, we ate at a restaurant that was new to us, and they had the best stuffed mushrooms. I mean it, they were the best mushrooms. You may think you make the best mushrooms, or have tasted the best mushrooms, but unless you have been to Q&Y in Monticello you haven't had them. And the best thing about these mushrooms is that they were on the buffet. We could (and did) load up as many as could fit on our plate. I mean GOOOOOOD!
OK, back to the story....So after we ate we stopped by Walmart and looked around, because without kids, Walmart is a totally different store. And after Walmart we drove by this kids store that was having a going out of business sale. The sign on the window said "Crocs buy one get one free".
So today we went to buy some crocs. I was scared that they would only have little sized crocs but, you know what? The Crocs that were on sale were the bigger size Crocs, the ones I had gone to buy for D&D. I was so excited!! I have never bought Crocs. My kids always have to wear the ones from Payless (except for the ones I got at the local resale store in town. I bought Anna a pair of pink ones for -are you ready?- 25 cents!!!) because I am too cheap to shell out $25-$35 on Crocs when I can get the knock off ones for $8. But this time I shelled out $24 and got 2 pair of Crocs. I was proud!! And so were D&D, and that is what really counts!
So, that is what I did today. I drove 23 miles to buy 2 pair of Crocs for $24. WOO!HOO!
I hope you had more excitement than I did today. Or maybe you have had too much excitement lately and you just need a day of quiet and no surprises, if so I hope you had that.

I'm off to church. I don't care what people say, I enjoy Wednesday night church. I wish more people would give it a try.

I just had to laugh about your comment about Walmart being a totally different experience without the kids, because that's what dh and I always do after a dinner out alone, oh and what fun it is! I say the same thing all the time. Good job on the good deal on the crocs! You sure seem to know how to find a good bargain. Wish we'd have met sooner!
