Weekend Musings: Walmart + Diary Queen + MOMs

My recent trip to Tennessee was not intended for pleasure but to visit with my mom who was in the hospital.   However, once she was released and home recovering, I ventured out to get my childhood favorite food…  baby burgers from Diary Queen – that somehow just hit the spot.

My daily escape to reality was grocery shopping at Walmart…  which I had to actually drive to another town to visit.   I knew it was time to leave when the check out ladies were starting to recognize me!
And what is a trip back home without visiting MOMs!  Mechants Outlet Mall located in the old Brown Shoe Company with isles and isles of great finds.   Everything from old to new stuff, purses to furniture and even four wheelers.  My sister and I spent a good hour walking around and see some great finds.   I bought 2 old oil lamps and a couple of old glass milk bottles from early 1900s.

Weekend Musings… Sunflowers + Antique Tables + Doublemint Gum

Hello Monday… you came way too soon!  This past weekend was one of relaxation and bargain indulgences.    I have this thing where I like to look at pretty things in my kitchen so I indulge every so often and pick up a small bouquet of flowers.   Now I am definitely the bargain shopper so nothing over $7 – how you ask?  Randall’s or Target but usually Randall’s.   But any main grocery store will have fresh flowers and very reasonable.  No roses or anything that smells due to my allergies.   Here is a pic of my new sunflowers I picked up and my “new” old copper pitcher.

Doublemint Gum – this reminds me of my childhood and always brings a feeling of home and comfort.   My dad use to bring this home to me every blue moon.   Sometimes it is the little things in life that bring the most joy…

Spent Saturday in Galveston touring the antique stores there.  So many were destroyed by Hurricane Ike but amazingly recovered and reopened so we try to always buy in Galveston, if possible.   Found this wonderful table and chairs probably 1920-30s era for under $500.
