My Patience has paid off! Woo! Hoo!

This worked out perfectly for what I learned this week. It's called being in the right place at the right time! I'm usually a day late and $447.00 short.

But this week I learned that....

1. ....if you pray for something and diligently wait for months and months and months, and refuse to pay full price for ANYTHING, and quit thinking about how you missed the great deal LAST year, you might get your flip flops blessed right off your feet!
Yup! That's what happened. I was at Wal-Mart getting a few things when I felt the need to check the wicker set ONCE AGAIN! I check this bad boy about every other time I go to Wally World to see if they have marked it down. It started at $447.00. (Ain't gonna happen!) Then it went down to $400.00. Still to rich for my blood. But Saturday Aug. 1 2009 I checked the set once again and it was marked down to $247.00 just that morning! And if you think that is still to much, try finding it cheaper ANYWHERE! Because I have trust me. I searched garage sales, craigslist, estate sales. You name it I searched it, but no one wants to give up their beautiful patio furniture and I knew that this was not going to get any cheaper. In fact I'd be surprised if they had any sets left at Wal-Mart right now. So I quickly grabbed the nearest garden employee and probably gave him way to much information on why this was to be mine! (There's a whole nother story to the purchase of this set but I'm sure you're sick of my post by now any way! LOL) I just used the word "nother" and drove the spell check crazy!
you wanna to see it? I'm sure you do!!!

Please disregard the empty planter with the tag still on it! I'm working on that! LOL
Won't you join me for a cold glass of ice tea? You know I'd love to have you!
I am just loving it!!
Um, I learned other stuff but this is already to long so you'll have to wait till next week!
But if you have something to share be sure to link up to Musings of a Housewife for all to see!!!


  1. I am soooooooooooo jealous, that is the one I have been drooling over all summer also!!! Hubby works at walmart and he came home sunday morning, (he works mids) and told me they had just marked them down. Sadly walmart pays poverty wages to its people. So I probably won't have a chair to sit in when I go to walmart. You know you spend to much time in the garden center when your 3 yo asks if they can go to the playground at walmart, (she was refeering to the porch swings)


    Have a Blessed day.

    So happy for you! Let me know when you need some help breaking it in ;-)

  20. It's beeeeeyoootiful! Looks like it was made for that spot, doesn't it? Wonder if our dinky store has anything good marked down. Check out Ace hardware for something to fill that planter. I got a trucnkload of plants for a quarter each at ours! Ferns, begonias, periwinkles, herbs and veggies, etc, etc, etc... all on clearance.

    Love ya loads, sweet thang!
