EBAY!!

While I don't have quite the same bargain shopping skills as someone I know, I am still very good at finding a great deal! I have had a blast on eBay lately... A certain well loved gramma funded my recent excursions on eBay. THANKS!!! :) Check out some of what I got:

Ok, one of the Nalgenes is missing. J scarfed it and took it to work. But it looks exactly like the green one with the yellow top. I am *still* waiting for my extra Nalgene top. I, um... melted the top for my original Nalgene.

The silver colored parts are something that I don't know much about but I do know it goes to J's motorcycle. I am waiting for one to arrive for the truck, as well. We had to replace the bearing on the truck, and since it is four wheel drive, that is a VERY un-cheap part! But... J came home and told me to look on eBay and, lo and behold!! There it was! For a good $60.00 cheaper!! Yay!!

And, under the napkin... yeah... I am the most excited about that, hands down!! I'll admit, I am a Victoria's Secret fanatic for all sorts of very logical reasons, but shopping there has the ability to get very pricey... So, I decided to see if I could find those things on eBay. And I DID!! Fourteen pieces in all, and for any of you that have visited VS, you will know that should have cost me....... an astronomical amount. But it didn't. I covered them up for the sake of my daddy... Don't want you to have to see it... But, if knowing where I shop gives you heart murmurs, I'm really really really really sorry. I just couldn't NOT include that exciting part and fully convey my love of eBay.

And Gram, if you get to read this, THANK YOU! Every time I open my drawer and pull out a thing or use my Nalgene, I think of you. When I drive down the road and my truck no longer hums, I will think of you. Love you!

P.S. For the record, I am not the only person to talk about their things on their blog... But, dad, I promise, tomorrow's post will be much safer. I apologize for all the discomfort this one may have caused you.

HA! Those are MY nalgenes *lol* I have THREE of thing one (that would have been like... $105-$135... and 11 of thing two, and at $8.50 a pop on those, do the math!! I'm so excited. And guess what... I match on a regular basis again!! I haven't done that since before the kids! :-D
