Even though it was emotionally draining, I had a great time in California. My mom always takes me to some new fun place to eat. We started the trip off right with a visit to a country BBQ place. Fried pickles and sweet tea? Yes please!
While I was visiting I helped my mom sort things so that we could have a massive garage sale. We spent four days going through all of our junk. My mom kept every single toy I had ever had...so it took a lot of time. And of course the kid in me wanted to play with everything. Did anyone else have The Littlest Pet shop toys? This isn't even half of what I had!
It seems like these toys are selling well on ebay so this lot is what I decided I could part with.....plus it was a good excuse to set all of them up one last time!
They are just too cute for words. Hopefully I'll have a daughter who will enjoy playing with them some day.
I didn't get a chance to take photos of the garage sale goods until it was almost over. I can't believe we still had SO much stuff left over! Our goal was to sell the big stuff: piano, couch, dining set, bookcases, and dressers...and we did!
That's my cousin sitting on the ground going through records and my aunt standing to his right. They were a huge help to us that day. The best part (other than the cash we made) was seeing some old friends who stopped by. Both Erin and Abby came, as well as some mom's of a few of my other friends....so good to catch up! Too bad I didn't take any photos.
My mom's dog Sydney was really confused by all of the boxes. She's getting old and not used to so much activity.
She was doubly confused when I tried to take a photo of her wearing my old pink boots. Oops. I settled for a photo of them next to her...and she was scared of them the rest of the week.
