Today I went shopping...again. Today it was for tablecloths!! I am so excited. Williams and Sonoma had a clearance sale AND they carried 90" round cloths that actually had patterns that would go with my kitchen!! I bought two.

Green table cloth (if it comes up yellow as default, I bought the green one) and
this orange cloth. You don't know how excited I am because I was going to make one and it is so much cheaper for me to buy them!! (and don't look at the prices on site-didn't pay that!!)

I also bought some more Fiesta Fruit bowls. They were on sale and then I got extra off with a coupon. I had a credit at Macy's so they were basically free!! So excited!!

Then I browsed my FAVORITE store Anthropologie and decided that when I get down to the size I want, I am treating myself to an outfit. That is my motivation. However, I did buy some mini latte bowls in different colors to make gifts with. (I have an idea but not going to say anything until it comes to fruition!!) They were $2.50 a piece and there were some really pretty colors.

It was so fun to browse and look at pretty things, talk to the sales people (something I don't usually do. I don't like them bothering me when I am browsing. I just like to look!) and just take my time.

I LOVE summer!! It ends, though, tomorrow because starting next week, Char no longer has camp. Yuck.

It's always nice when you find something you like AND it's on sale!! Enjoy your new purchases. What Fiestaware colors did you get? I have a collection of the fruit bowls too. It's the only other Fiestaware piece I've purchased besides the 5pc settings.

Oh lots of fun, and I'm glad you had a good day.

I did shopping too, yesterday. I ordered a whole bunch of Basic Grey background papers, half off in the pre-CHA sale here.

Are you going to show us the outfit you have your eye on? Or you in it? I haven't seen pics of you for the last... must be TWO YEARS now.

No outfit yet, girls. I need to lose the weight first!! I RARELY have my photo taken. Chris usually takes horrible photos and then tags me in them on FB. Some I could just kill him for posting them at all!!

My fruit bowls are in assorted colors. I have 12-one in every color I could find in the store. Obsessive, yes, but I had six and they were ALWAYS in the dishwasher!! We use those bowls more then we use any other dish!!

I bought some Fiesta platters in the white, kelly green (I think this was a "special" color and they no longer have it) and then a Paprika bowl. I LOVE Fiesta and would buy more if I could!! I had to replace all of my stuff because I gave my old dishes away when I packed them up when we did the kitchen. I even gave away all my serving bowls on purpose. I knew that was the only way Chris would let me replace them!!!

We use the fruit bowls quite a bit too. They are the perfect size for icecream.

And snacks!! Portion control!!! Makes me feel like I am eating a big bowl when in fact it is maybe 6 or 7 crackers!!

When I look up reviews online about Fiestaware the main complaint that I see is that the bowls are to small. Not really! Those are the portions we should be eating.

That is America for you!! I think they are the "perfect" size. Char does too. In fact, for a while I was missing some. She had been putting snacks in them and then eating it at her desk upstairs when she was doing homework. I put a kabosh on that pretty quick!!

I get the 5pc place settings and people complain about the size of those bowls too. A lot of them buy the Gusto bowls for soup, cereal, icecream instead of using the bowls that come with the place setting. They are really big!
