Another Weekend Gone

Yard sale = Huge Success!!
I sold everything. Literally everything. I don't have very many interesting stories to report unfortunately. It was pretty uneventful. To most people that would be a good thing.. but you know how I like a good story. The only thing I got for ya is a very sweaty, tell me your whole life story woman who bought 2 lamps from me but said she'd have to come and get them at another time. The lamps are still in my shed. I assumed she meant this weekend but apparently not? She was sweating so much that my brother thought she was spitting. No, that was just the sweat rolling down her lips as she was talking. It really wasn't THAT hot.
We thought we were done around 10:15. Just as we were figuring out how to get a dresser, desk, and bookshelf down the the goodwill store, a older man in a pickup truck pulled up and started checking them out. He said he'd paid me $25 for everything. Sold. Deal of a century for him? Absolutely. But also for me seeing as how I didn't have to deal with it! I made out pretty good and will be using the money I made to put towards paying for the rest of my sweet pup that I'm going to pick up in ~ 18 ~ days!!! I bought her a cute little bed this weekend at Burlington Coat Factory for $9.99!!
I DID NOT on the other hand find another dress to buy that I liked more than that blue number from a couple posts back, so that was ordered this morning. I'll have it by Wednesday. Pray Pray Pray. I also ordered the dress I'm going to wear to his graduation:

Very simple, I know. But I likie and I'll spruce it up with some fun jewelry. I can't believe his graduation is a mere 3 weeks away. I remember when were counting down from 2o-something weeks. It felt like a lifetime. I can't even express how much I'm looking forward to living a "normal" life with him again. I do worry about re-domesticating myself though! I don't think he'll be down for cereal or LC's for dinner...
