Other than running these couple errands, my boyfriend and I just lounged around. As you can see, it wasn't the nicest day out. We watched Green Zone, made some eggs and hung around in our sweats.

Even Mousse said it looked crappy out.
The weather yesterday was gorgeous, so with my sister in tow, we made our annual trek to the Sussex County Fairgrounds. Its part 4-H Fair, part craft fair, part amusement park. My boyfriend bought these beautiful earrings for me from one of the vendors. We made sure to get vanilla milkshakes from the 4-H stand (delish!), strolled through the barns looking at sheep, goats, chicken and rabbits, poked around the craft booths, watched the horse show for a bit and tried to avoid getting hit by passerbys wielding inflatable mallets, lime green aliens and gigantic stuffed toys. Fun for all! :)

It's definitely snoozeville this week at the stores. Usually I'm out at the crack of dawn doing the deals on Sunday morning, but today I slept in. It was yummy. Of course by the end of the week I'll be jonesing for a good sale, but for today a lazy day felt lovely! P.S. Love your kitty.

I will so trade you sunshine for rain. This has been the longest hottest summer ever here. Everything is dead! Love the deals. I've never tried the Purex but ready to give it a go!

I agree Melanie. I'm planning a couple of trips, mostly to roll some rewards but that's about it. Its nice to have quieter weeks though.

Valerie,
We've had an abnormally hot summer here too. My electric bill was more than double the normal amount since I've had the air on so frequently. It cooled off yesterday and was almost chilly, but today is back up in the 90's. Yuck. I'm so ready for fall!

Figures, right as I get into the swing of all things Rite Aid, CVS and WAGS (finally I got into them!) we get a slow week....lol

Yea, yesterday was a pretty 'laid back' day. We unpacked from our AC trip, did laundry and watched TV. I LOVE lazy days like those!
