Yesterday, I took a day off work. Mr. Ripples had the day off too. We sent the kids too school and had a date day.
We hit some garage sales. I got 3 new books to read. Found some brand new activity books and little toys still in their packaging that I bought super cheap to put away as stocking stuffers for Christmas.
We didn't really need anything but found a new umbrella and a Christmas tree skirt both of which we did need.
Then we stopped at the thrift store to get the girls each some t-shirts. I cleaned out all the stained and worn out clothes from their closets a week ago and they both needed a couple new t-shirts. Baby Ripples got 3 new shirts, Big Ripples got 1 shirt and a pair of jeans, Mr. Ripples found a shirt and a photo album, all for $14. Yay for Thrift Stores!
Then Mr. Ripples and I went out to lunch at a nicer restaurant. He wanted to go to the buffet but since I rarely get to go out to eat, I wanted someone to wait on me. It was an expensive meal but very good. $43 including the tip.
After lunch we took a nap until it was time to get Big Ripples off the bus.
It was a great day. I wish I would have taken today off too.
