My procedure went well yesterday.
Surgery wasn't nearly as scary as I had built up in my mind.
But this morning, with some pain meds in my system I decided to hit the pavement and go shopping.
I desperately needed some retail therapy.
And I got it.
Plus....the doctor said I need to be up and moving to prevent blood clots. So the mall and Farmers Market seemed just like what the doctor ordered.... : )
Mr. Free and I woke up early with some friends and headed to the City Market.
We had so much fun.
We ate some pastries at a local bakery.
Then shopped around and got some amazing fruits and veggies as well as a half a loaf of Tuscan bread.
Look at that bounty!
Half loaf of Bread $5 (it's massive!)
5 peaches $4
3 onions $2
Big bag of green beans $3
Green onion $.75
Not too shabby!
Then my Mama took me to the mall where I indugled in a little Godiva (and Mom sent me home with some chocolates!)
And then headed to my favorite store for cheap indulgences, Forever 21.
I got some skinny jeans for $11.50 (regularly priced!)
A necklace: $5.80
Not shabby. I told my mom that I couldn't remember the last time I bought something for myself at the mall. It had been a long time.
Then when I got home I was reading a good friends money saving blog and found a steal on cereal at our local Hy-Vee.
The Free household goes through a LOT of cereal.
And I basically got paid $1 for buying 6 boxes of name-brand cereal! Score!
So yes....that was my day in a nutshell.
Workin' hard to get this economy back spinnin'!
Thank you again for all the thoughts and prayers....we have appreciated it so much!
