Jackie's Busy Birthday

Alternately Titled: I'm Really Excited That We Saved a Boatload of Money Today.

Today was a super busy day! First off I took the boys to the doctor--more on that later. Then we went to Target to get Jathan some church shoes (and a Barrel of Monkeys). When we got home we left almost immediately to go to Mellow Mushroom for Jackie's birthday. Yep, he's another year older today but don't worry, he hasn't shown any signs of growing up yet. = P

We had gotten a couple of gift certificates to Mellow Mushroom, one of our favorite pizza joints, through New Orleans Perks where you can get 1/2 price certificates to different restaurants. So
instead of spending $30, we spent $15 and filled up on some DELICIOUS cheesy garlic bread and the house special.

After Mellow Mushroom we went to Academy Sports so that Keeleigh could look around. She's been wanting a tent to play in and they had a 7x7 one on clearance for $16! She's so excited that she wanted to set in up on the breezeway and sleep in it tonight but I thought 45 degrees w
as a bit chilly to be camping out. Mean ol' Mama, I know!

Then we were off to Kohl's where Keeleigh was in bargain heaven. They had a huge clearance junior's section that was 70% off. She picked out several things to try on and ended up getting a some really cute pieces all for the same price that she paid for a single pair of pants yesterday at Old Navy. Her receipt said she saved a total of $78!

Jackie also found some great deals at Kohl's. He got some much needed pants and a couple of shirts and his receipt said he saved a total of $77! You've just gotta love Kohl's.

Yep, we shopped 'til Jathan and Ryland dropped but it was worth it.

I resisted the urge to go to Hobby Lobby mainly because it was getting late and we still had to travel all the way across the causeway (Did you know it was the world's longest bridge? I just learned that today!) but Keeleigh and I did hit Kirkland's where I finally bought the rooster lamp I've been thinking about buying forever. It was marked down to $10 and looks totally cute on my baker's rack.

So, even though it was Jackie's birthday, we all had a wonderful time and got some great goodies!
