No luck.....with the baby that is. She was 9 lbs 11.5 0zs and 4 days late. However I did push out some heavy carts from that store in those last few months.
I don't know what it is about Home Goods but when I walk in there its like I'm in another world. So my question is .....is their motto Be Home Goods Happy a Myth or Mama medicine?
On Saturday 1/1/11......I had cabin fever and had to get out of the house. So off I went leaving Big Daddy J with the little ones (I said a prayer for them before I left)lol.
My mind was racing on the way there (5 mins away from my house) of course I was doing the speed limit (yea right). I was already thinking of my vignettes and decor for Jan/Feb in the house. As a retail merchandiser you're always ahead of the season which is why you'll see spring/summer stuff on the shelves soon. OMG!!
I get out of my super cool mama mini-van and walk through those amazing automatic doors....the squeak was music to my ears. lol
First thing is a 3 tiered square cubed display of everything CUPID, VALENTINE, RED, GOLD and FEBRUARY! Yay! Score!
I then spot some dishes and of course I'm a bargain shopper ( I just want to get more for my money) so I make my way to the CLEARANCE aisle of each dept. I quickly discover from the WONDERFUL RED SIGNS that all Christmas is 50% off. I would've expected a little more but I started picking through looking for all things RED.
I scored some fabulous little finds as always. It was like little vintage discoveries at a flea market. Not like a room makeover trip where you buy everything in your sight in the theme your going for.
Im quite happy with my finds and they are currently in a RED Rubbermaid tub awaiting their proper display.
My traditions are strong and I will not put away my 3 Kings and Baby Jesus until January 6th, but after that it's full blown CUPID'S CAVE up in here.
Here are my finds from my Home Goods night out:
This lovely red lady was only $9 and yep 50% off!
This I will be saving for next year's Red/White Christmas
Yep $7.99 and.........50% off!
I also got this fabulous letter "J" that is currently hanging solo on the hallway wall but I have big plans for this letter J and the hallway too.
SO.......I'M GONNA SAY THAT I'M VERY HOME GOODS HAPPY RIGHT NOW!
Home Goods is this Mama's Medicine for Cabin Fever!
