Our host is Gattina. Come join us and tell us what YOU did this past weekend! After all, you never know when you will need an alibi!
As it was Super Bowl Weekend, I did a fair amount of appetizer preparations. Even when it is just Hubby and me, I still try to make things festive. I prepared a 7 Layer Mexican Dip, and then I also prepared Steak Fajitas. We hadn’t had them in a long time, and so I thought it might be nice. And it was!
On Friday we drove down to Concord as I had a problem with my winter coat. I had washed it and it shrunk! Well, LL Bean Guarantees their clothing and boots, no matter how long you have had them. So I brought the coat back.
You might recall last January 22, 2012 I had brought in my much loved blue jacket (see me in Germany in the sidebar) for a new zipper and was talked into getting a new coat. You can read about it here, but that coat never really thrilled me, and then when it shrunk, well, back to the store it went.
I really love LL Bean. They checked the old coat out, gave me a gift card for the full value, and then I was able to take my time looking for a new coat.
At first I saw nothing and then there was a rack with winter parkas marked down and then another 30% taken off. So I started looking, and there it was!
So between my gift card, and a few coupons I had, Hubby got 2 pairs of pants and I got this coat for $6.95!
Interestingly, this parka is a sister parka to the one I loved so much and had for 6 years before the zipper broke. (see sidebar)
Greta and I went visiting on Sunday. She just loves our neighbor and our neighbor loves her too. I used to bring Shubi up, but now Greta is the favored one. It was a good time.
Well that wraps it all up. Have a great Monday everyone!
(PS: Today would have been my Grandma Honey’s birthday. I still miss her and send my love to her in Heaven)
