The Girls Day Out ,What We Do For Fun

October 24, 2019

I like to do to have fun that involves
getting in my car getting my seatbelt on and getting my daughter and picking her
up then we’re going to my oldest daughter’s house and we’re gonna spend
the day together and you get to join along doing us and my little adventure
the girls in Homestead tessie’s life and it’s gonna be exciting and fun get ready
whoo are you ready are your seatbelts on let’s get started and it involves this
girl and it involves this girl and these girls a certain point I people I should so we went to Salvation Army and we each
got some treasures now we’re ready to go to our next store and it’s our favorite
store and now we’re for a favorite thrift store reuse it let’s go and see
what they got so we did a lot of things that we
normally don’t do and one of them was going to McDonald’s for lunch
my grandchildren aren’t used to fast-food restaurants in fact they’re
not used to many restaurants at all my daughter does most of her cooking by
scratch and so by going into a McDonald’s was something really fun for
them and they enjoy that we got to go McDonald’s and go to Goodwill and go to
the thrift store and go to Salvation Army and we got to do so many things and
I’ll show you what I got so the first thing I got was I spent a
dollar and I got this and I thought it was really cute and somebody did a lot
of work with it to cook books at Salvation Army now their books are
pretty reasonable so I paid a dollar for each more than a cookbook book and then
I got this one for a dollar and I thought the recipes were really unique
and has all kinds of recipes for non-food items as well so I thought they
were neat and I only paid $1 each for them because they were softcover and then I was at the Salvation Army and
I was said to my granddaughter’s I said I just wish I could find a clock
I want a battery-operated clock for in my kitchen I used to have one and it
fell into my sink and stopped working and we looked and looked and looked and
couldn’t find anything and we were ready to leave and my granddaughter just looks
over she says oh well there’s one and so I got a clock it’s exactly what I wanted
now it was $4.99 their prices are outrageous but it was blue tag so it was
half off so I paid 250 for it so that wasn’t too bad
so I can’t wait after this video I’m gonna put that clock back in my kitchen The Salvation Army is about Oh almost an
hour away The Salvation Army is about 35 40 minutes away from our house so I only
go maybe twice a year I don’t go very often but my daughter wanted to go for
some clothing but I’m really glad I went now I did spend a little bit
I spent $3 for all of these but look at all these vintage lids so we got vintage
lids and they’re really all goes with what I like to do but these were 27
cents at one time and I just thought wow how you need to
use these for display $0.99 so I just stopped there with me these here are
really old so for $3 for all of these wasn’t too
bad so I’m glad I got them and the last thing I got was this and it’s a shredder
but it is a modern one I paid 99 cents for it a goodwill but I’ve never seen
this before it actually came with this on the bottom
of it never seen that and I was using my antique one but now I have this one it’s
so much sharper so when I shred all that bar soap I’m going to use this as my
soap one and I have another one that I can use for food 99 cents I was really
happy about that so I hope you had fun with this really
different video of just me spending my time with my daughters and my
granddaughters and just what do I like to do for fun and that always involves
my children enjoyed this very unusual video it’s about me having fun with my
children and at the age of 17 I got married and by the age of 19 I had my
three children and I’ve been married almost 33 years and I think a lot of it
has to do is because I grew up with my children and so they remained my closest
friends take care everyone we’ll see you guys tomorrow okay I’ll beat elidio it’s a video
everyone there’s Sarah she’s feeling better today there’s a girls I guess
we’re still having a fun girls day even though we are in the hospital right you
