I had a great time going to craft fairs last week but I have had my share of craft fairs, festivals, and extravaganzas to last me for a while. I found so many neat things, Christmas gifts, and great bargains that it is impossible for me to write or show them all in one post. The road trip with Bryan's mom, her friend, and her niece was great. We had tons of laughter and came home with inside jokes that no one will find funny but us!!
It means so much to know people are really truly praying for Bryan and I and they are not just saying empty words. Kelly blessed our food at Abuelos and spoke the most eloquent beautiful words to God for Bryan and I. I am blessed she is my friend!!
On Friday morning we went to War Eagle. I got some Christmas presents there and I also came home with some groceries. I can't wait to eat all of this!!
Left to Right: Cindy (Bryan's aunt), Karen (Bryan's cousin), Donna -- in the green shirt (Bryan's mom), and Gayla (Donna's best friend). I laughed so much with Donna and Gayla. It was a blast!
On our trip home Saturday we stopped at Oops!! I remembered Kelly mentioning it on her blog before and I called her on Friday to get the directions. It just so happened it was on the very road we would take to go home!! Yippee!!! I got so much stuff there but I saved boocoos of money!!! I got Christmas ornaments for $1.80!!!
Then in Siloam Springs, AR we stopped at the DaySpring Card outlet and I spent over 2 hours in that store. The money I saved there was unbelievable. I'm sure Donna and Gayla got tired of hearing about it. I got some notepads for the ladies in my Bible study group. They normally cost $7.99 but the outlet had them for $2.00. I bought 12. On this purchase alone, I saved $71.88!!!!! I also bought at least 4 Christmas gifts. I would drive back to Siloam Springs just to shop at this store. If you live in the area definitely visit this store!!
On this trip I bought a lot but a saved a ton!! I had more pleasure in knowing the dollars I saved than I think the actual item!! It is also a big relief to get some Christmas presents taken care of. Maybe I should relocate to NW Arkansas!!
