This weekend was so great. I know most of you are going to hate me, but it has been up in the mid 80's all weekend and today is suppose to be even nicer!
Friday I went to a yard sale and found a pasta maker! I have been wanting one, but not wanting to pay full price for one. So I bought one for three bucks and let me tell you it was so worth it! We had the best pasta ever. Even Rusty said it was great. The difference is the pasta actually had taste, and was not just a filler for the sauce. So this week I am going to make up a ton of pasta and freeze it.
Yesterday I grabbed one of the marines and we went looking for yard sales. We only found one, but I cleaned up there! I found a new pair of dickies for Ryan and a pair of jeans for Nikki. They were 50 cent each! I also found a big stack of handkerchiefs, some plastic cooking utensils, and two really cute large bags! Everything I needed for a grand total of $4!
Then we went to down town Lake Elsinore and went to this little coffee shop and let me tell you they had the best iced coffee. This place also had a huge chess set, so I taught the marine how to play chess.
We came home from that and I cleaned out Rusty's truck. Rusty leaves tomorrow for another sale, so I wanted to do something nice for him, and Rusty did like it.
I mentioned to Rusty that I heard about this hot dog place that says they have the best Chicago style hot dogs. O.K. I am from Chicago, so I will be the judge of that. This is a little mom and pop place and they are expanding! They did have great hot dogs. They also had a sign that said European hot dogs. Europe has the best hot dogs ever! They put Chicago style hot dogs to shame. So I had to ask if they were true European hot dogs, with European buns. The lady looked shocked that I knew what I was talking about. She said they will have those style of buns in in a few weeks.
I will have to take the girls there. Nikki wants to try a European hot dog and Amber and I love them already!
Today I want to get my bedroom and bathroom scrubbed down. I am not going to spend to much time cleaning because I also want to go to the lake and catch some rays! I have a book and sun, what more could a girl ask for?
Amber comes home tonight! I do hope that she had a great time. It will be nice to have her home.
I do need to go to the store and pick up some stuff for Rusty to take on his trip, but other then that The day is mine! I can't wait to go play in the sun.
