New Earrings – Not

Stopped by Kohl’s department store to find a new pair of jeans and see if they have anything good on sale. They were featuring jewelry for half price, so I decided to look for a new pair of earrings to go with my jeans.

I found a nice pair of silver earrings with little chips of dark blue stone. There was only one pair left on the rack and the sale price made them very affordable. I pulled the little cardboard backing off the rack to purchase them and one of the earrings came loose, fell to the floor and slid under the big glass display case. I couldn’t reach it and there was no sales clerk available to help me.

So I didn’t get to buy those earrings after all. I guess it was just not meant to be.

Labor Day weekend disappointment

I had originally planned to have a nice weekend with my spouse. We had planned on going to the mountains and enjoy an old-fashioned drive-in movie. They have a great drive in about an hour and a half from our house. It was built in 1956 and has been in business ever since!!! They have the playground, the concession stand and you can see two movies for only $7.50 per person. They play two feature length films a night and…they have two separate screens with different movies playing on each one.

I was so looking forward to eating drive-in concession stand hot dogs or pizza and enjoying the night like we did when I was a teenager. But, as fate would have it, something came up and my husband was not able to come home; he had to make an unexpected trip to Laredo, TX. He will be back next weekend instead. We were also going to go to a very large flea market in the same area where the drive-in is located. It would have been a nice weekend getaway, but his work schedule took it away. There will be another time though; I can hardly wait and am looking forward to it very much!!!!

Paint or Paper?

The wallpaper in my bathroom is getting really shabby. There are tears and patches missing, and stains that won’t wash off. It is probably the original wallpaper that came with the house when it was built in 1980. So I guess it is time to pull that off and do something else with the walls.

I’m not really a big fan of wallpaper, but it seems like everyone always puts wallpaper in their bathrooms. I would rather just paint the walls, but I want it to look nice. I think the patterns and decoration part can come from the towels and shower curtain.

What do you think?

Pasta Salad

Some of the delis have a great selection of salads. My favorite has always been a vinegar based pasta salad, although I love to try the different potato salads, too.

If you have a recipe for pasta salad, would you mind posting a link to it or including the recipe in a comment for this post? Thanks so much!
