Great finds!

Last night my Mom, Matt (don't know how much fun it was for him) and I had a lot of fun looking through all of the baby stuff at the JBF sale. I got two great items for super prices. I got a new unopened rainforest bouncer for $30 (retail $60) and it is just adorable. I also got a gently used bath time set (pictured below) for $14 (retail $34). I was happy with the items I found. Not all of the stuff we looked at was of course worth buying but they did have some great finds. My mom got a grandmother pass to the sale and was able to get a great deal on a highchair ($27) and another bath time tub. She has all the stuff to keep babies at her house now. With Gray (my niece) we had to use a towel in the tub to bathe her and then feed her in her stroller when she came to my mom is ready. We were able to get Matt's mom a hardly used pack n' play for $40...great find!!
Matt and I find out on Aug. 10th if we are having a boy or a girl and we are so excited. It is too bad we don't already know because they had tons and tons of great buys on clothes for infants and kids. If you are in need of clothes and you don't mind digging for a bargain it is worth it. They are going to have a Just Between Friends sale in McKinney in Sept. so I will be looking for the dates on that sale for sure.

JBF here I come!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to shop! If you know me well you know that I live for big sales where you can save a ton of money on nice, cute, fun, and normally expensive stuff!!! Well last night at a dinner party I was visiting with a new mom and another pregnant friend and they let me in on a big Dallas sale that I had no idea about (must be some sort of Mommy secret) Its called Just Between Friends. www.
Here is a link to a shopping diva video clip to tell you all about it!

The sale is located at Mesquite Rodeo Hall and you can find directions and info on their website. The pre-sale is tonight from 5-10pm with a pass and then open to the public starting Thursday, July 29th- Sunday, Aug. 1st.

I was so excited to log on to their website last night and find a link for first time moms. If you are a first time mom (either pregnant or your baby is less than 1 year old) you can register for a pre-sale pass:) So of course I registered and my mom and I are headed out there tonight. I will let you know what sort of super stuff I find! My friend did tell me that she usually get clothes and other items for her kids for almost the whole year. Also if you are a mom that has a ton of clothes, toys or baby equipment that is new or gently used that you want to get rid of and make a little extra cash easily then you need to check out their consignment is so easy!

Happy Shopping:)

Friends and babies

This week Michele gave birth to little Ashlynn Joy. She is too cute and was a tad early but doing great! Here I am with Sandy and Michele on Ashlynn's birthday. Little miss Ashlynn did not do a whole lot other than lay on her mommy and sleep.....I think that will be her job for awhile. This little cutie is Steve and Halie's little girl Cambry. She is about 2 months old and this was my first time to get to see her. She is so cute and is already growing like a weed. It is amazing how fast they grow and change. I am so glad that Steve and Halie stopped by the hospital to visit Michele b/c I got the chance to visit with them and see thier precious little girl.

My sweet husband bought us tickets to go see Coldplay tonight and I can't wait. Matt and I both enjoy a lot of the same music from old country, rap, hip-hop (just me) and whatever else. It is great that we enjoy listening to the same kinds of music because then we are not fighting over the controls on the radio. Coldplay is just one of our favorite bands so I am excited to go and listen tonight. I am not too excited about being pregnant and in the Texas heat at night to see the concert but sometimes things come with a price right?? It should be a good concert.

Picture of baby Flesher

Well here we have a more recognizable picture of baby Flesher. I am 12 weeks 3 days along in my pregnancy. I have not felt sick at all which is a big praise. Matt and I had our appointment today for some prenatal testing so we got an extra sonogram. The sonogram doctor let us watch baby Flesher move around for about 20 minutes which was so fun! She said he/she was really active...jumping around a lot. She tried really hard to get him/her to turn over so that she could let us know the sex but baby Flesher and its profile but he/she was just not cooperating today. That is probably for the best so that I don't go crazy shopping for things. We will just be patient and wait until our 20 week appointment to find out for sure. I know that the sonogram picture is upside down but it is easier to see what you are looking at if I do that. I tried to label the parts that are the easiest to see in the picture. We are so excited and it was so much fun to see our little one so healthy with all of its parts and moving around. We can't hardly wait another 6 months.

Weekend get-away!

Matt and I are excited! We are in need of a weekend get-away and Lake Travis here we come! We are leaving this Thursday and are bound for the Island at Lake Travis (in Austin) to enjoy some good time spent with family. We are meeting Scott and Shannon (Matt's brother and wife) and Christy and Todd (My sister and her husband) for a fun weekend at the lake. We are so excited and we know it will be a blast. Here is a picture of the resort. Matt and the boys will play golf on Saturday and the girls might make a trip to the spa. Of course Matt will just be driving the golf cart because he still can't bend over much less swing a golf club. We are looking forward to fun in the sun, lake and some good pool time. I still need a tan as we are half way through the Summer and I am still white!

I am sure I will have more fun pics of our weekend when we return. Matt goes back to the back doctor tomorrow for another check-up. We are praying that Dr. Banta says it will be ok for him to get in the pool and lake over the weekend. It will be one hot weekend for Matt if Dr. Banta says no:( Matt returned back to work full time and is doing great! He goes to nerve therapy still 3 times per week for his left foot and it seems to slowly be getting better. Thanks for all of your prayers.

Just trying to stay cool!

So the Texas heat has really set in and with days that inch towards and above 100 degrees a girl has to find a way to stay cool. Oh how I wish that my house had a real pool in the back yard but you find ways to do without. You would think that with my dad being a pool designer and bulider that I would have a beautiful pool in my yard....well all I need is the $30,000 to make it happen right??? Every morning at 7:30am I have been going to water aerobics and I LOVE IT! It is so fun and relaxing and cool that early in the morning. But....after I get home, run around town and then have lunch all I want to do is find some water and dive in! Well I won't be diving in this case.......... So here is the answer to my heat problem:) My own little blow up splash pool...LOL! I love it and it is the perfect size to just sit back in the yard and relax. Even Matt has put his lawn chair in the pool and gotten some rays with me....umm can you say white trash!! Oh well at least we are nice and cool. I got this little pool on sale at Target for like $15 bucks regularly $30 so I thought it was a deal. So if you are jealous and need some cooling off this Summer just call me and I can let you know what the Summer pool hours are at the Flesher house....or I totally understand if you want to visit your local neighborhood pool:)

4th of July Neighborhood Parade

Matt and I love the 4th of July. It is such a day of celebration for our country and time spent with good food, family and friends. This year we started our day our by going to the neighborhood parade. All of the kids were so cute and Matt enjoyed seeing all the fixed up old cars. Here is a small taste of the parade. This is an old Richardson Fire dept. truck that they have restored. I liked it the most. It has an original old wooden ladder on the other sure did not look very long:) It was neat to look at all the stuff they used to use. It is amazing now what a up to date fire truck looks like...they are so fancy now and have so much more stuff.

This man was adorable. He had a horn on his mini car that played little tunes for the parade. It was cracking me up. I love this kind of 4th spirit!!

I thought this little girl was so cute and she was really concentrating on riding her bike and keeping everything together. They had a little contest for best bike, car and dog of the parade and I think this little girl should have won!

We had a great 4th! After the parade we headed over to my friend Jennifer and Chris' house for Dylan's 2nd birthday party. It was a lot of fun and we enjoy spending time with them. This was the first year that Matt and I together or single had not gone to see fireworks. By the time the day was over I was beat and ready for bed. Hope all of you had a wonderful and safe holiday.
