We made a final trip to my in-law's house on Saturday. The second auction is coming up this weekend. It will have the household items and the rest of the antiques that we didn't have time to sell at the first auction. This one is combined with another family at their home and we aren't stressing over it. We don't even have to be there (but we probably will go). We took a cutting from my in-law's lilac bush. It is sitting in a bucket of water and we have no idea how to transplant it at our house. Any suggestions? We would love to save it.
I also crossed over to the "dark side" since I had access to a "real" Verizon store and finally had the time to explore my options. I have been an iPhone holdout. I am definitely a gadget person. In fact, I had a hard time getting out of the store with only the phone. Those iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tablets were calling my name. I just hated adding the fee for the data package to my already loaded cell phone bill. I hated the $10 package that I was forced to add with my last phone. We have 3 phones on our package and I already pay enough! Our Verizon salesperson was great and he did some research on our usage habits and found that we were paying for minutes we didn't need. A few tweaks and our bill with the new phone will actually be a little less than it was before. I've been playing with my new toy since I got it and I love it! I'm having a little trouble adjusting to texting with this kind of keyboard, but hopefully it will get easier. I'm obsessed with all the apps available, if you have a favorite let me know!
I'll leave you with a picture of a store display from our trip to Michigan. Maybe it will inspire you...I could certainly use a little decorative inspiration this summer. How was your weekend?
