The buds last night:
I think I need a bigger couch!
The bake sale at work went great - the last I heard we had raised over $500 at our branch. If there was a person that made it out of the branch without buying something, they were either very quick or T was selling to someone else! T stayed in the lobby all day 'pushing' the sale. Her group did such a great job of putting everything together. They repackaged things, priced everything and monitored the sale. Around noon they started knocking a dollar off the prices. Somewhere around 3:00, they had 'happy hour' and everything was 1/3 off. T was hitting up all the guys that come in to cash payroll checks on Fridays - a couple of eyelash flutters and the mention of sugar - they were hooked! There was absolutely nothing left at 5:00. (I was just a bit bummed - the last I had looked, I still had a couple of bags of truffles left, and I had decided to give a bag to Alli's daycare provider, and then one to AJ. Now I'll have to make a whole new batch!)
Alli and I went chair shopping yesterday too. Her rocking chair had springs sticking out the back of the chair! I really wish she could tell me when things started breaking (or that I was more observant!) Poor thing - that can't have been a comfortable rocking chair. She has a new one now - not quite the color I was looking for, but Salvation Army had it for $80.00 - it is leather, and seems to rock nicely. She isn't quite sold on it yet. Maybe she liked the way the old one felt with no springs??
