DH Training Well for Tablescaping and We're Ready to Climb the Waterfall!

I participated in Anita's Sunday Shopping Secrets and since it is almost Monday and everything I shared for Sunday is blue, I decided to enter the same post for Blue Monday too. Blue Monday is hosted by Smiling Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/. Please visit her blog and check out everybody else's blues tomorrow.
Whoohoo! My favorite past time is shopping so you know I will always have something to share for Anita's hosted event of Sunday Shopping Secrets. Please visit Anita at http://bridalblooms4u.blogspot.com/ and check out what everybody brought home from the stores this week. I have bought so much this week and this page will not be enough if I uploaded all the pictures so I will just show you a few. We went to Baton Rouge to pick up my laptop yesterday and then I asked dh if we could stop by Ross. And yes, we did! I saw these 2 fish and I immediately thought "hmmmm...beachy tablescape". I showed them to hubby and then he left the aisle. Then he came back with these three wood carved items, a lighthouse and 2 pelicans and said, "I brought you more for your tablescape" LOL! He is getting a good training, isn't he?
I have looked at different stores for water shoes for AJ that she can use for our trip to Jamaica next month. And then I saw a size 2, sport Teva sandals. I was so excited cause they will be perfect for her to climb Dunns River Waterfalls. I already have my water shoes but I liked hers so much that I searched high and low for my size and found a pair so I got those too. Yipee! Just look at those rubber soles! I think they have enough traction and won't make us slip in the slippery waterfall. And we match...LOL!
I got even more excited when I saw the price of $8.99! Can you believe that? Do you know how much these cost in a sporting goods shop?
Now, we are all set to climb 600 ft up the Dunns River Waterfall!

Thanks Anita, for allowing us to show off what we bought. Now I am off to see everybody else's cool stuff.

Christine, how neat that your DH is helping you shop for items to do a tablescape. That's just too precious. Love the fish and lighthouse and seahorses. The shoes are a terrific buy and what a great find to take on your trip. Be sure to take lots of pics as always so we can all enjoy your trip. Hugs, Marty

Not to mention, that he sure does have great taste...all of those items will make a fabulous tablescape! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Christine,

Your DH is a sweetie! Maybe he should start his own blog!

I didn't know you were going to Jamaica next month. So is my daughter Abby with some of her friends. It is our graduation present to her. Originally she was going to Mexico, but because of the escalating violence there, we re~routed her to Jamaica!

Climbing the waterfalls sounds like a real thrill! I assume it is safe if you are letting AJ climb also.

I love your purchases. maybe I will participate one Sunday!

xoxo
Jane

You can tell that your husband is so supportive of your blog when he helps you shop for stuff. I think that's so cute! Mine will come up with post ideas or say..hey you should take a picture of that for your blog....It always makes me smile. I love the nautical stuff you got. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

A beach-themed tablescape. I wonder what you'll prepare for such event :-)The two fishies are so cute and the additional lighthouse and pelicans are just perfect! You and your hubby must really think alike :-)

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

Oh man, those fish are fantastic! Don't you love looking around stores like Ross? And holy cow, but you DO have the hubby trained! I'd never get Jimmy to walking INTO a store like that with me, much less HELP me spend his money! LOL
Ah, Jamaica. I'm soooooooooo jealous!
