not your everyday garage sale


We are knee-deep into getting ready for a
MAJOR
garage sale tomorrow
to raise more $$ for our adoption!

And listen,
I gotta say right off the bat that I simply
could not
do this without the help of my mom and sister, Kindel.

They literally worked for hours, dripping with sweat from the blasted heat wave, helping me get ready.

Girls, you ROCK!

We spent much of the morning yesterday organizing all
our junk...er, I mean wonderful items.

My mom's garage is FULL.
FULL, I'm tellin' ya.
Of really great things.

We had fun arranging everything into "departments"...
it all looks so good.

It is NOT your everyday garage sale.
Trust me.

I'm thinking we should open a boutique.

But that's another idea for another day.

Anyway,
would you please pray that a gazillion generous people
come to our sale?
:)

AND....
don't forget that the drawing for the iPad will take place THIS COMING MONDAY!!

(August 9)

It's not too late to get in on it!!

I have been majorly meticulous in keeping record of
each and every entry.

And I am so stoked to mail this beauty to the winner!

Go HERE for more details!!

I totally suggest having a donation box there instead of pricing all of your stuff (saves loads of time)! We did this with our adoption garage sale and it was a SUCCESS! Its just a thought of course. We had posters everywhere announcing our adoption....people were so interested...and generous!
