We ended up not going out of town this weekend which was nice because I got some much needed rest. Friday night we went to the baseball game (Nationals vs. Cardinals). We had free tickets through work and there was a good group of us in the suite.
Saturday my hubby went to the Caps vs. Penguins playoff game. He is a HUGE Pens fan so I gave him my free ticket and I decided to stay home and run errands. Saturday night we checked out the Rockville Town Square's Cinco de Mayo celebration and hubby bought me a super cute dress! It is adorable and I can't wait to wear it on vacation. The straps and length need to be altered.
Sunday was supposed to be spent doing yardwork - planting flowers and getting my vegetable/herb garden together but it rained all day. :( We decided to still get the materials at Lowes and also pick up the Dyson (more on the Dyson later). We got everything we needed for yard work so hopefully the weather will be nice this week and we can work on it after work.
As you all know we were ready to buy the Dyson this weekend. There was a little bit of drama but it actually all worked out in our favor. Here's the short version - Went to Lowes (gift cards and discount card in hand) and they didn't have the vacuum. I asked customer service to see if any of the other Lowes around us or my parents had it...none did. I was annoyed but nothing I could do. I remembered seeing in the weekly Target ad that the Dysons were on sale ($439) so we decided to use the Lowe's gift cards for the all the gardening stuff we needed and go to Target and get the vacuum cleaner there. We decided to also open up a Target credit card and got another 10% off so we ended up saving more $$ getting it at Target. Haven't used it yet because hubby has to put it together. I have never been so excited to vacuum. For those of you in need of a new vacuum - the Dyson ones are on sale at Target this week so go check it out!
