Let it snow, let it snow...

Barrett had his first experience with garage sales this weekend! I used to go with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law all the time in the summer. They would pick me up before 7am (this was very early for me before I became a mother), and we'd have a list of addresses to hit. It's so much fun to see what kind of treasures you can find! I hadn't been a single time yet this summer, since someone was keeping me busy at home in the mornings. Saturday morning, we were up before 7am, as is the routine around here with our own "little alarm clock." Justin was making coffee and I was playing on the floor with Barrett and kept hearing car doors slamming out front. I opened the front blinds to see cars lined up all along the street. I told Justin there must be a garage sale down the street. Barrett and I walked out in the front yard to take a peek and noticed Grandma Sandy's car parked across the street, so we waited in the front yard to see her.
After that we loaded up to hit some of the other sales around town. Barrett was awake for the first few, so we got him out with us. Then he fell asleep, so we took turns getting out at each sale. After we'd been to all the sales on our list, we got McDonald's breakfast...ahh, guilty pleasure--Cinnamon melts...and went to the park to eat. While at the park, we noticed the local Farmer's Market was going on, so we put Barrett in the stroller and browsed the homemade jams and candles and yummy produce. I love small town Saturday mornings!

One of our favorite finds from Barrett's first weekend of sales....these SNOW BOOTS!!! They look brand new and we got them for the bargain price of $1.00!
They're a bit big for this winter, but he'll have so much fun playing in the snow one of these years.
If you love sweet, chubby, chunky, rolly-polly baby thighs...enjoy these pictures!


  1. What a fun morning for you guys!! Barrett is SUCH a doll baby!!! And I must admit I have a weakness for chubby, chunky, rolly-polly baby thighs...both of my kids had them!! :)

    Reading that post took me back to small town America!! Things are SO vastly different here in the big city, but I will NEVER forget where I came from or the many things it represents!

    I hope you have a great day!!

  2. And we were just talking about you not going to any sales yet this year! And those lil chunky thighs...we call that "sweet meat" around here!! :)

  3. those pictures are too cute! I love garage sale finds... i'm missing going this summer. :(


  4. Now that is dedication to get up before 7 on a Saturday morning! How funny that Gma Sandy was just down the street. I have not heard about the cinnamon melts, probably just as well.

    Love Barrett in the boots. He is really becoming quite the ham for the camera, how fun! Can't wait to see you!
