{"Deally" Dallying!}

When I got off work yesterday I just wasn't quite ready to go home. I decided to go browse through Burke's and Big Lots for awhile.

But first, I went through the Sonic Drive thru....
I used this coupon...

And got this yummy diet cherry limeade! A perfect afternoon pick-me-up!
I LOVE DIET CHERRY LIMEADES!


As I enjoyed my treat, I browsed through endless racks, and got lost in all the clearance deals!
I found these new yellow wedges for $3!!!
And a couple of new reads to start my "beach box"....(I have a little box that I'm filing with goodies I might need for my vacation, I usually do this for all upcoming trips. It's nice to have a little box of "prizes" to pack up when you're getting ready to go! Plus, you save money by buying great deals ahead of time rather than having to rush out and buy expensive things at the last minute.)
OK...this one won't go in the beach box because I won't be needing it anytime soon *wink* but hopefully I will one day! I'm lookin' forward to reading it someday though! It was brand new at Big Lots for 50 cent!
This one is a beach read for sure! It too was only 50 cent....a little light hearted romance. Perfect for a day of lounging on the beach!
And Jinxed....a little paperback book I found at Dollar Tree. Really, I just liked the cover!


I've been really into reading lately! I just read "A Child Called It" and "The Lost Boy" by Dave Pelzer. I HIGHLY recommend both! They are such moving, tragic, yet inspiring tales of a young boy who was SEVERLY abused by his mother thoughout his childhood. I can't wait to read the third book, "A Man Named Dave." So many children endure so much that we never even know about....SAD!


But on a lighter note....SMILE!...

I also got this new nailpolish!
This is the ONLY polish I've found that really truly lasts 14 days!!! It's AWESOME and I really wanted this light pink color for a new manicure!

And lastly, these little gold bangles for a whopping 30 cent!

After my relaxing shopping trip I felt energized for a run! I put Glory on her leash and ran around the neighborhood. I can slowly feel my body gaining strength and I feel my endurance SLOWLY getting better! Yay! Then I sat for two solid hours and read completely through "The Lost Boy", the book I mentioned above. It was that engaging, I couldn't put it down!

Tonight I have a date with Bubba to help her pack for her upcoming cruise (aka...hoping she can pack ME!) and then going to see "Letters from Juliet". A fun GIRLS NIGHT!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thursday!http://www.davepelzer.com/

Love,
Laura
