It has begun

Alden and I have an obsession. And with the warmer weather creeping in I feel it coming to the surface. Getting out of bed in the morning on a weekday is a battle, but getting out of bed before 8 on a Saturday in the spring..... that is like Christmas morning, every Saturday.
We are avid garage sale shoppers. And we aren't the only ones, I will tell you that much. Although we are by far the youngest and dare I say, the hippest? I had a meeting last Saturday and I came home to Alden unloading this beauty. He told me it was kind of a lot of money but he really liked it so he just had to get it. I asked how much it was to which he replied, two-fifty.
TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS?!
Nope. $2.50. TWO DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS.
The man selling the credenza talked himself down from $5 to $2.50.
Quite a bargain that boy of mine.
Now....where to put it?
