Porch Glider and Table

I used my Five-Dollar Savings Plan again!!!!

Click here to read more about how it works in detail….the overview is that you save every $5 you come across, and save it to buy yourself something. 

Now, here’s my new setup! I bought a glider and a table!

So, I started with $275. I thought of many things to spend this on. The only one I can remember right now is a new point-and-shoot camera (the one I have now is more than 10 years old). Anyway, I finally decided on furniture for my porch/patio!

Why? Because the sun sets riiiiiight there. Quite the view in the evenings.

Ok, so I had a $275 budget.

And I REALLY wanted a swing. For my porch. See? It needs something to keep the gnomes company. 

But, after much measuring, I decided that a swing won’t work. Too small of an area. You see, it would FIT, but then I wouldn’t be able to get into my front door…so I was looking for chairs…so I went looking for chairs with my 2 awesome girls. 

And I found a glider at Home Depot!

But I wasn’t sold. I tend to like dark furniture. That seat was so light. 

Then Natalie found this set! 

They didn’t have the glider in the store, but she saw it in the booklet!!!

So, I went home and looked at it online, measured my porch, and tried to decide…

It looks lighter in that picture, but the one at the store was darker…so I went with it! I did it!

Now, I had paid for it online, so I had to take my $5 bills and deposit them into the bank…

I chose to have it delivered to the store (shipping was free that way), and my friend and his Jeep helped me get it home.

Then it was time to assemble!

And I did it! And I felt great! It was beautiful!

And then I had sticky stuff on the metal from the stickers that they’d put on it….but I know how to deal with THAT!

After it was all cleaned off, I took it outside!

Then I realized I needed a table. I had $40 left, so I went searching…at Target.

And I found one!!!

Chloe’s Closet: Day 68

Today I went to dinner with my Aunt Rachael and her family! I love them so much! I especially loved being with my cousins…I miss kids so much! We went to Pirate Island for dinner…it was surprisingly delicious! Like seriously….SO GOOD! And we also played games….I got it in the 10,000 hole!

There was a man doing balloon art! My aunt got me a flamingo!!! I love it! I asked my 4-year old cousin to name it…she named it Tangle. =)

And I love my balloon flamingo!

My undershirt is a Half Tee! I love these things! The tank top is from Target…I got it forever ago! The shorts I got yesterday from Savers when I went with my Aunt! I love plaid shorts…and these were only $3.49!! Dude! You can’t beat that! Unless it happened to be cheaper than $3.49…that would beat it. Oh and also if it was free…that would also beat it. But the point is, my awesome shorts cost me $3.49!!! And the Converse…from my wonderful mom of course!

Chloe’s Closet: Day 57

Today was yellow and brown and light blue day! Sheridan took my pictures….first I posed like the care bear on her door…

Then I posed like the Jimmer on her door…

And then I saw tires on the floor….so I used them in my pictures!

And then Sheridan took a picture of my cool Converse…

And then Jenna walked in and stuck her foot in my face so I freaked out…

And then I wanted to fit inside the tire…

Well that was fun! And let me tell you…the jeans are from American Eagle. The undershirt is a Down East Basics lace camisole. The jacket thing is from Macy’s I think. The shoes are from my mommy =) The yellow laces I think are from Target. I got the hat when I went to Chinatown in Houston with Tammy! Oh and I made the necklace and some of the bracelets.

Today I was walking to class, and I saw Elisabeth. And she said we made a pumpkin together! So I said I’d come by later and we’d get pumpkin pictures! So when I got home I went to do it, but she wasn’t there. So she came upstairs when she got home…and Jenna took our pumpkin pictures!

Get it? I’m the pumpkin…she’s the stem/leaf!

And then we did a reverse pumpkin….she was the pumpkin, and I was the stem/leaf!

And then I crushed her…
