Freecycle 365: Day 76

Offline and celebrating BDay weekend so no FC!

We just got back from Palm Springs 4 my BDay!!!

We were able to find a room even though Stagecoach Concert was going on at same time!!!

At first we had rocky start, even though we left at 2 afternoon the traffic was a bear!! And our first Hotel room wouldn't let us stay there because they forgot to mention they had one dog minimum and we had two!! So we had to punt and two hours later found a room! Wehhhh that was stress!

We enjoyed a great dinner at Kings Highway (in Ace Hotel).. Love that place, I'm gonna snag a room 4 us their during hot summertime cheap ratez Palm Springs Style!!!

The next day we had breakfast at locale Health Food Store, and since it was my BDay, and we did a bit of Thrift Shopping, Palm Springz Style!! We got a shopping cart w wheels at Marshalls along w small organizer purse 4 me, so needed!

Then we found few Thrift Stores and got a few cute silver costume jewelry pins, a seagull and a mushroom!!! So cute!!!
One is from Sarah Coventry (remember??), a Los Angeles Pottery 1971 Avocado Green ceramic Mushroom large salad bowl!!! Three mushroom items all in one week! Threez a charm!!
We also found a working Waring electric can opener circa's 70's (we need it!)!!!!!

We had great day thrifting in the desert! And had dinner at Spa Casino they have all u can eat seafood Buffett. We normally don't do all u can eat!!! It was actually really good and had that Vegas Vibe to it!

On Sunday we came home early to miss bad traffic (made it home in hour 10), and we went to Largest Swap Meet in Cali, at OC Fairgrounds! They charge $2 a person!!!!! To shop???!!!

Well it has over 1000 booths and is all new stuff, what a dissapointment, fa sure!!!!!

We did find me a pair of New Eileen Fisher Linen Capri's for $5!!! And two really cute camera bags 4 $5!!
That was it!!!!!!
Itz nice too not to lured into a hypnotic buying state like we say so many people!!

We ended our day at Costa Mesa Ikea and got red colour Laptop wall table! We really needed it and itz a great space saving piece of furniture!!! It is hubbyz BDay gift (everyone getz gifts on my BDay!!).
Now he has desk to put his laptop in and area for bills, stamps, envelopes!

What a hectic weekend! But fun!!
We ate and spent too much, so now were working ourselves back to balance w food n spending!!!
