Makin' Money for the Man..the Irish Man


(Scroll down for my Wordle!!)

Yep, I am having a yard sale today and tomorrow! I will be slaving away trying to rake in a few bucks, selling off everything we own so I can continue to afford Irish dance. I will catch up with ya'll on Monday! Got any yard sale horror stories for me? What about lucky yard sale stories??? Anything???

Before I go, I want to share this delightful tidbit that I happened upon while visiting my friend, Ladystyx! Do you like Chick-Fil-A? Do you enjoy their tasty chicken sandwiches with pickles and a nice cold Cherry Coke as much as I do?? Then be sure to click one of those linkys!
You will laugh your pa-tootie right off! Seriously, go check it out!!! Even if you have never heard of Chick-Fil-A it's worth checking out because it will give you the giggles! My kids and I can't stop watching it! (just scroll down a little when you get there!)

Have a wonderful weekend!


Don't forget to join Shannon over at Last Shreds of Sanity for her Week-end Wordles!

As long as you don't sell your computer. ;o)

The best yard sale I ever had was with my mom. Before the sun rose, we blew up balloons and hung them everywhere. In the glare of daylight, we realized that they looked like blown up condoms. Hanging EVERYWHERE. ACK.

That Chick-Fil-A song was hysterical! We love eating there and now I am craving it for lunch.

Good luck with your garage sale! I know how much work they are to do. I have them about every 2 years which means I am due this year. I'm skipping though. Maybe next year.

I saw that vid at her blog for Chick-Fil-A and it was hilarious!

Good luck with your sale. I hate those things!
Me said…
You will do fabulous darling!

Seriously..I have had great luck with the yard sales I have had. Made almost $500 one time. (I had a lot of baby stuff to get rid of). There was one time though..I was helping a neighbor with her yard sale, and two of her 'customers' back into each other. One of the drivers was so upset over the whole ordeal she dropped the glass table she had just purchased, breaking it. She demanded her money back. After discussion, my neighbor agreed to give her half back. As the table was still usable, it just need a glass insert. Silly people!

Good luck and I look forward to hearing about your success!

LadyStyx said…

Good luck with your yard sale. We have been fairly lucky as of late in the way of money coming in but the horrors are the people who will try and steal from you. YES! I have caught people trying to walk away with stuff. Like paying 50 cents for a shirt is just too much! But I don't let it go and usually they are guilted into buying more.....lol

Have a great weekend!

Arrrghh! Yard sales. People haggling with you over a toaster that already costs a dime! I hate them! They are so much work and people are so cheap. I ran an ad once with a start time of 7:30 am and people started ringing the doorbell at 6:00 am. Yard sale people are nuts! Hope you get some good sales!
I am all about yard sales.... I wish I could be there to shop. Hope you have "fun".
Queenie Jeannie said…
Good luck with your yard sale!! I know how much work all that is!

Good luck with the yard sale!!
Marie Reed said…
That sounds like a blast. My cousin and I used to sell lemonade whenever my Grandma had a yard sale! We were so excited by earning dimes:)
Good luck on your yard sale. I want to have 1 this year & sell all the old baby stuff. I love Chick-fil-a, but we don't have 1 in our mall. I want to go to the other mall & eat there soon. I've been missing it.

I hope everything went well and you made lots of money! I really need to drag all my crap out and sell it. I feel like my house is shrinking!

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)
