Garage Sale Saturday & Mailbox Stalking pays off!!

WOW! What a whirlwind weekend! We had our big fundraiser garage sale on Saturday! It was big and really great! Thanks to my boss, I took Friday off to prepare. This is the craziness on Friday.....

So I worked on it all day Friday and then got up at 6:15 Saturday morning. There were people already pulling up at 6:30!! Not. even. kidding!
You could tell they were the professional garage sale type. They would slow down, throw it in park, jump out, run through like a tornado and then back in their cars and quickly peel out. I think Clint was able to slow one guy down and asked him what he was looking for. He said, "jewelry". I'm thinking....ok, I've got a "Troy" watch from High School Musical in there for a $1 you can have! HA. That was Laynie's old watch of course!!

We had a great turnout and didn't close up until 3:00! We made $1448.83! Woot wooot! We have some stuff left over, but for the most part..everything is GONE! :)

I had some AMAZING help on Friday and Saturday! My sweet friends from our Life Group helped bake cookies and muffins for our bake sale. My wonderful friend, and next door neighbor, Kerri helped me organize and set up on Friday and then came and worked the WHOLE day on Saturday! Her little kiddos helped too! I couldn't have done it without them! My hubby was gone at a baseball tournament, so it would've been just me!! So I was super grateful to have my wonderful friends to help! I am blessed!

Here's little Caroline trying out the picnic basket! She's so dang cute! Not for sale though! ;)

In other wonderful news, my mailbox stalking has paid off!!! On Saturday we received our CIS approval letter!!!!! I was SUPER excited.

Yesterday I got all the dossier paperwork out and starting checking stuff off the list! It feels so good to be able to get this done! This paperwork phase has been a little nerve racking!

It was a super fabulous weekend and I am excited to get the dossier out this week. Also, looking forward to our dinner and silent auction this Saturday. Busy, busy!!
