I didn't get much accomplished this week, in terms of shopping, but I'll keep you posted with the deals I get on groceries and food. I won't be able to do the $50 in September challege, as a few things have popped up which will prevent me from doing it. :( Hopefully I'll be able to do it in October!

Not the best deal that I've had, but it was a decent savings, and I got a lot of things that I needed.
Saturday, Mom & I went to the Houston Design Center for a big sample sale. I didn't find anything, but I learned a lot about rugs & I got a lot of decorating ideas. I bought a beautiful Kilim (made in turkey) to go by my bed. I've been looking for another one (to go on the other side of the bed) for a while. Unfortunately the rug stores didn't have any that I liked in the size that I needed.

4 Letters- LOIS! I went to see the corpse flower, Lois, at the Museum of Natural Science. We bought our tickets during the day that we were planning to go. We bought tickets to see her at 10pm (as the museum was open 24 hours a day to see Lois), we arrived at 9:45pm, and we waited an hour to see her. She wasn't half as stinky as I thought that she was going to be!

I started to read her book last night, and it's really great. I highly recommend it.
I'm going to see her talk again this weekend at the Holocaust Museum, as she will speak before the showing of the Laramie Project (an HBO movie that was made to show the Matthew Shepard story).

I took Jeepers back to the park on Sunday morning. After the park, I did a MASSIVE cleaning at home. I moved all of the furniture to clean my floors (LOVE the Swiffer WetJet), and I cleaned my couches from Dexter & Jeepers' hair! We ended the weekend with a family dinner with some cousins. By the end of the night this is what Jeepers looked like:
Have a great week!

Kitchen tile ripped out
Leveling the concrete before they can put down the new floors
Wood FINALLY going in!
Dexty peeking out while they were ripping out tile/carpet in the other rooms
After a long day full of loud noises (from tile being ripped out), dust, and cleaning, I headed over to my Grandma's house for dinner with the family. My Aunt Ricki was intown, so it was great seeing her. Didn't get any photos Friday night. Sunday was my cousin, Adam's, high school graduation. I'm so excited for him as he gets ready to head up to Boston for college, and I'm looking forward to seeing him this Fall when I visit!
Adam's high school class
Adam getting his diploma!
