Walmart, I'm impressed!

Ok, as you all know I'm partial to Target, very partial. But, the other day I was at looking at the HP 3-in-1 printers when I came across a new line that they are carrying called 'Canopy' and I have to say that I'm impressed!

We'd like to start slowly updating our master bedroom furniture. Everything in our bedroom is hand me downs. We have a very large, very ugly dresser that I got at a garage sale a few years back. It's made of solid oak but it's not very functional and often find ourselves (read Handsome Hubby) stacking clothes on top of it for easier access.

Check out this dresser! Based on the description it is well made and it looks sharp. The best part is that it's under $300 which is really a good deal for a dresser if it is indeed well made.

A few other items from the Canopy line that I think have promising potential....

I've not been into Walmart in awhile and I don't know if the line is so new that they're not all in store yet but I'm anxious to check them out. If any of you end up purchasing something from the line you'll have to let me know what you think!

Weeks pass yet again and here I am....I really am not a good blogger. So many times I think of blogging but then I end up reading everyone else's blogs and lose track of time.

The new scale has been helping me keep my weight in check, sort of. We learned that through the company Handsome Hubby's just started with he can get a great deal on a family membership to the YMCA. The YMCA here in my suburb is really pretty nice with lots of new equipment and classes to choose from. We joined a few weeks ago and have been going 4 days a week. We have been meeting there 3 days a week on our lunch hour and going with the kids on Saturday morning. I lost almost 5 lbs according to my new scale last week but managed to gain almost all of it back over the weekend. For shame! Now, I'm spending this week trying to reign it back in. I'm so frustrated with myself because my goal is so attainable, 12-15 lbs to lose, but I seem to sabotage myself on the weekends.

Switching gears completely, I've been thinking about unique things I can put in the kids' Easter baskets next weekend and haven't gotten too far with it but I did find the super cute 'monster toys' at Room Service Home. They were originally $29.00 each but have been marked down to $5.00 each so I bought one for each kid. Aren't they so cute?

They both will get chocolate bunnies and all that good stuff. We'll have to eat Delaney's for her since she's too young. Oh shoot! ;) But I was also thinking about getting them both a pair of Croc's. Aidan wore his pair from last year ALL summer long. They are so easy to throw on and so comfortable. I'm thinking Delaney would use them a lot this summer too since she's just learning to walk, they're lightweight and comfortable. The big decision is the colors, they have about 50 colors to choose from!

This weekend my Mom is coming down to visit. She and I have a 'date' with Aidan on Saturday. We're taking him to see 'Horton Hears a Who'. I can't wait to see it and Aidan is super excited too. It just looks so darn cute doesn't it? We bought the book last weekend in preparation for the big date.

Oh and before I forget! Happy Homemaker I miss reading your blog now that you've gone private. If you read this, I'd love to be invited to read it!
