Here's a little story....I hope you can follow my writing :)
I've been looking for a little farm set for Luke for Christmas. A couple of weeks ago, I found this farm set at Wal-Mart. The price -- $34.97.
(This photo was actually taken after this story ended -- but, I decided to show it now).
After finding it, I thought to myself, "I'm not going to buy it yet. I'm going to look around a bit."
Last week, I went one evening to Target. I actually went there for the one specific reason of picking out and purchasing new glasses -- as well as ordering new contacts for the next year (yes, I'm blind without the assistance). Target optical accepts the eye coverage through Marc's job -- Cessna.
After making the decision as to which glasses I was going to purchase....which, by the way, here they are (excuse the photo because these frames obviously weren't yet adjusted to my face and the tag was still on since these were for the showroom).
By the way, when they do come in, I'll take a better photo when they're adjusted with no tags -- also, I'll take a photo of my current (old) glasses for comparison.
Anyways, when the employee was entering all of my information as well as my order into the computer, I looked up and noticed a sign: "This week only -- $25 gift card to Target with any full set of glasses purchase."
Ahhh -- how nice would that be -- a gift card?
So, after finishing up with Optical, I took my $25 gift card and headed to the toys' section -- just to look.
I happened to notice the same farm set on SALE for $24.99....
Whoa -- Can we just say, "S.C.O.R.E.?"
My gift card would cover the "on-sale" price of this farm set. I only needed to pay the sales tax.....
Oh -- I was so excited....I definitely will NOT say that we bought this farm set for Luke for FREE (Marc and I don't like that word in this household) as I did have to purchase a pair of glasses for this, BUT it certainly does help when you get a bonus like this...
So, that was my sheer excitement for last week -- Hey! It doesn't take much, does it?
I haven't posted any photos of Luke for awhile, and since he makes me so very happy, I'll post a photo.
He loves waving the American flag around, and this day (last week) was no exception.
And, photos of Marc and Luke together certainly make me happy as well, and so, from this past Sunday, here's a photo of my two guys reading together on the couch.
And, one last "happy" thing....
Marc has given me flowers several times over the course of our dating/engagement/marriage. I R.E.A.L.L.Y. appreciate the fact that he doesn't overdo it with flowers because then, when I do get flowers, I genuinely appreciate them.
Anyways, last Saturday, to my surprise, Marc showed up at home (after running some errands) with this....
It's actually supposed to be from er....Luke. But, since we all know Luke is not yet capable of going to a flower shop alone and purchasing a flower, it ultimately did come from Marc. But, I was definitely sure to thank them both.
Marc said that "Luke just really wanted to thank his Mommy for taking good care of him each and every day. That way, Daddy doesn't have to sit and work and worry. He can focus on doing a good job at work."
That's sooooo sweet of them both :) I loved it! I think I even cried!
Those are my happy things for the last week!
