The Rest of the Story.....

Me:  Hon, I am going to run to Walmart.
Him:  Why don't you take the car!
Me:  I am going to be awhile...I just want to look.  The only thing I am buying is Peach Tea.

La, la, la....time alone to shop, look at Walmart.  Ooooh, starting to put out Fall....hmmm, I don't need anything but I wonder what is in housewares.  I'll just look.

OH MY GOODNESS.....I can't believe this....Oh, I don't need them.  But they are only 75 cents each.  I'll just get two.

La, la, la....looking, looking...hmmm, where is that clearance isle...oh here!  No, don't need that, nope...WHAT, what is there????  Oh, I have to buy them...I only need two!

Later....Me:  Hon, I need to run into the Dollar Tree.
Him:  What do WE NEED from there...?
Me:  I just need to see if they have 2 of these.....Oh Dollar Tree, please don't let me down!!

What did I buy????


No really, can you stand it???

I made the napkins just from some fabric at JoAnns.  The napkins rings...I put those together YEARS ago.  Placemats and Melamine Lemon dishes...75 cents each at Walmart.
Black plates...I have had.
Lemon know, The Dollar Tree.

So that's the rest of the story...I knew those lemons had something to do with it!! I haven't seen the lemon glasses at the Dollar Tree but it has been awhile since I stopped in. Wish I had them for summer, they are perfect for ice water or iced tea {or lemonade!!}. Love your dishes and pretty napkins, too!!

Be careful when you are going out for just one thing! ;-D

First, Happy Belated Anniversary!! I am so behind on reading blogs so I'm catching up here. I loved the pics of you and your family at the pool, it looked like a lot of fun (and your husband's Grandpa t-shirt....loved it!!)
The table looks so pretty! The colors and the lemons make it so fresh and cheerful. Great idea for the lemon container too.
Hope you are having a great week.

You know you HAD to have those lemon plates, girl! 75 cents, I can't believe it. Your entire table is to die for! I bought those lemon glasses for my daughter also. Wonder if our Walmart would have those darling plates. The black just makes them pop. Love it when you run on to something wonderful like that unexpectedly!
