Makes My Monday: The Blame Game

Tax-free weekend at Walmart.

Even while saving money and living better, we made a $188.00+ twinvestment in second grade school supplies...and had a heck of a lot of fun. Darren discovered---and came running to Sarah---waving the shirt they're hamming it up with above.
And who did we find restocking the ransacked bins of Fiskar scissors? One of our most beloved Walmart friends, Ms. Seevon...who's known them since the days of wheeling the DuoGlider into the snack bar to pop open a couple of baby food jars for a change in dining environment experience.

So two questions:
1.) Did we buy the shirt?
2.) Have you taken a picture at Walmart knowing full-well it'd end up on your blog?

Answer both questions in a comment and be entered to win a copy of Helen Garabedian's Itsy Bitsy Yoga and a signed copy of Twinspiration to boot. Play along with Makes My Monday and be entered twice!

I say yes, you bought the shirt...and no pics at WalMart...but have taken other random pics that I've shared here and there. :-)

Wish we had a Tax free shopping weekend here...nothing like that though!

I think you bought the shirt because the kids are so happy and we don't have any pictures at Wal-Mart (but I wish I have done it because I really love Wal-Mart).

I just can wait for the time to come to buy things for school (my girls are not going to school yet, next year if God permits).

You'd better have bought that shirt! No pics at Walmart for us .....

I am sure you bought the shirt! (I would have)

I haven't taken pictures at Walmart, but have taken them in many, many restaurants, Target, the movies, Home Depot...knowing full-well it would end up on a blog :)

I hope you bought the shirt! I also hope there was a coordinating shirt for her brother.

We don't have Walmart around here, so no pics - but I should have thought about taking some when we did go school shopping.

$188 isn't bad compared to my 3 in middle school. *yikes*

I bet you bought the shirt! They look too happy holding it. I know sometimes it's hard to resist buying them something when they are so happy with it. They are so cute and they are getting so big and taller. Have a great week!!

Happy MMM!!

I would say that you did NOT buy the shirt, but you did take the picture knowing it would end up on the blog b/c most of them do!

Jenny said...

1) Hmm... I am going to say yes, you bought the shirt. It really is cute, especially for the two of them. I bet it was also a good deal.

2) I haven't taken a picture at Wal-Mart that I can recall, but I did take one at Krispy Kreme while going through the drive-thru. It was during hot-now and those were some good donuts. I may have embarrassed my husband.

I have never heard of tax free weekend - that is pretty cool. I am sure that saved a lot of money! I wihs they did that around here!

I always wanted to make onesies that said "my evil twin did it" and "evil twin" - Maybe for halloween...

I bet you bought the shirt t- too funny to pass up!

And no, I have never taken a picture at Walmart but have done so in other stores and the mall.
