Recent Estate Buy & Shower prep


 This is the 3rd or 4th vehicle that we have bought at an estate sale! It's a little " fancy" for me :) We got a SUPER DEAL on it...it's a tad tough inside as "teenage" boys had been driving it! I drive it like an "grandma", for now! LOL!!  I was hoping to WAIT until next year for a different vehicle, but it was a SUPER DEAL....




Here are some of the decorations for daughter's bridal shower. I'm going to have fresh flowers. It looks like it will be inside as there is a 60% chance of rain. It looks like just under 20 are coming.

I've been doing some touch up painting, outside yard work, and more "cleaning up". Tomorrow I am getting a mannie/peddie with my daughter! A little girl time :) 

Grand girl's last day of 5th grade is tomorrow!!! Awww...so we will go to the Dairy Queen for our "traditional" last day of school treat! She is changing so much. I'm feeling a little sad that "grandma" isn't so important anymore :(

Just wanted to do a quick post before the shower. See you after the shower!
warmly,
deb

I love getting a deal at an Estate Sale! That car is gorgeous! Enjoy the prep for the shower, the girl time with your daughter and the after school time with your Granddaughter:) Sending hugs and prayers your way!

Best as the estate sale buy I've ever seen! How cool, the only cars we've seen at estate sales have been rusty 30 year old pickup trucks, lol.

You still have a 40 percent chance of a nice day for the shower, so maybe you'll get lucky. Have fun decorating and getting ready for the day.

Have fun with the shower, I hope they are wrong about the rain and that you have a perfect day!
And yes, nice wheels. I thought it looked like a Caddy, we bought a used one (they are surprisingly affordable!) and I have to say it's pretty nice, never thought I'd see the day that I'd be driving one! :)

Great new car Deb. :) Hubby had just got me online again before it happened. So sorry I hadn't been able to email you back. Thank you SO much for your kind words. It has been so shocking and horrible, but I have been really Blessed by God though all of it. It is then that He carries us :)

Hugs,

Rhea
