Winter Deals & Other Stuff

Confession...I go to Wal-Mart about 25 times a week. I am NOT a Wal-Mart fan, believe me. I hate the crowded aisles and the long lines. And our Wal-Mart has a Subway in it. Subway does not mix well with Wal-Mart. It always smells so weird in there.

Anyway...I DO find really good deals there from time to time, I have to admit. And this week I found two really good ones.

First of all, I am very cold natured, so I need warm, comfy clothes for when I am just hanging out at home in the winter. This week Wal Mart had all of their Valentines fleece pajama pants out and I just happened to walk by them. They looked so soft that I just had to feel them. Oh my goodness...I was sold! I almost bought this exact pair, but they didn't have my size...


...so I got plaid ones instead. And I have literally worn them every single day since! They are so warm and so comfortable and they were only like $12!

Then, today I saw a jacket exactly like this one for only $25. I popped it right into my cart!


This makes my third coat that I have bought from Wal Mart. I get compliments on one of the coats all the time. People are always surprised when I tell them it came from Wal Mart! Both of those coats are very well made and so warm. I have had them for years. I love good deals!

On another note, I have my own "The Help" this week. Laura is here till next weekend. So while she is here, she is helping me out! She helps me with cleaning and with running errands. And tonight she cooked dinner for us. She made Pioneer Woman's Spicy Shrimp. John, Ashley, and David came over to eat with us too. I love having someone cook dinner for me!


Steve is watching the LSU v. Alabama game tonight. We both lived in Louisiana growing up, so we are pulling for LSU. I may watch a little bit of it, but I'm pretty sure I'll be asleep before it's over. Six o'clock comes reaaaallly early! I'll just have to find out who won in the morning.

My daughter loves the fleece pj bottoms from Walmart. She owns several pair. I absolutely roast at night so they are too warm for my blood!

Enjoy your help while you have got it. It's nice to have an extra pair of hands around from time to time.

That coat is so cute!! My sis finds cute things at Walmart all the time. I never think to look at the clothes!

I like for people to cook for me too. LOL You are so funny. And it's nice to have one of your sweet daughters home to help you!

Hope you're having a great week, friend!
