Closed on Sunday

I went to check out a vintage candy store today. I found out about the company from an ad in the local paper, hours were not listed. Darn they are closed Sunday! The store is open during the week and Saturday until 7pm, good thing they are close by. I am excited to see what kind of candy they have. I love the Chick-o-Sticks and Big Hunks, you can still find these in some stores around town.

Love AZ! T-shirt and flip flops still.

Happy Halloween!

Good tip

To turn off Geo-tagging for your photos on your cellphone camera here is a link that shows you how.

I checked the setting on my phone and this was already turned off. There was a segment on the news the other day telling how people can track your photos. For example you post a pic of your new flat screen tv, which has your home address associated with it, next you post a pic at a restaurant...if someone is watching they can determine you are not home and this would be a good time rob you.

What a cool store

"Polka Dots and Popsicles" at San Tan mall opened September 1. No popsicles for sale here. This store is comprised of unique items that would be great for Christmas presents. Suprisingly this is the first time I have been in or even noticed this store, possibly because it is not on the main strip and next to Dave's BBQ. I left with two cards. Some of the items in the store include colorful beads made of recycled paper, glass jewerly, metal wall art and onsies with bling. The owners little girl was helping in the store( she was maybe 8) wrapping purchases, she showed me some cute items too.

Jewelry Party

Saturday night I went to a Lia Sophia party. They have quite a few cute necklaces, earrings and bracelets. All the bracelets were too big for me:( I ended up buying two necklaces and a pair of earrings. The lady got me with if you buy three items you get the most expensive one half off. I can't wait until the end of the month when my goodies will be here.

My favorite candy(during Halloween)

Love these pumpkins! I found this candle that smells just like them:)

Random Snoopy yard ornament at Target.

Great customer service - Sears Automotive

Last night I went out to my car to go home, tried to start it once alarm went off, tried to start it again alarm went off, great battery is dead. Good thing Lenore was there and a guy in another car that had jumper cables. I got the car started and then called Costco. I wanted to see if they had a battery and would install it. The guy said they have batteries but do not install them. Not good, I do not install batteries either, I am sure I could do it but prefer not to especially in the dark. It is now 6:40pm, I call Sears and ask about a battery and installation. Terrence said they close in 20 minutes, what kind of car do I have and he will check their stock. They had the battery, I pull up to the front and he asks I pull around to the side entrance to the last bay. I go inside to pay for the battery and by the time I was done signing the paperwork the car was in the front of the store and ready to go. YAY for Sears!


This girl loves chocolate more than anyone I know.
P.S. The caramel apple was pretty good.

Fun at Fashion Square

One of the clothing stores Hollie wanted to look at had these masks. She did not get anything from this store but these were fun!

I told him it was cold

Blas wanted to go swimming before they headed home. I told him the water would be cold but he still wanted to go. What does he do when he first get there? Jump right in of course! He gets out and says "The water is cold". Just because it is 85 outside does not mean the pool in warm. Get in or we are leaving.

10 10 10 Race for the Cure

The start of the race

The finish! Kim made it. Hollie and I are glad she joined us for the first time!

Waiting for Blas to decide

Damacio, Hollie, Kim, Blas and me(with the chainsaw)
Blas wanted the biggest and most expensive Lego sets at the Lego store. He had to decide what to get right now. The biggest and most expensive were not an option. While waiting Hollie and Damacio constructed Lego people for each of us.

Missed photo

Last night I went to Sand Bar on the west side to celebrate Marble's birthday. She was there early to get a cabana for the night. This was nice because there are couches to sit on and a little balcony to hang out and people watch. Towards the end of the night I was relaxing on one of the couches and this guy came over and wanted to know why I was sitting down. I told him my feet hurt from standing, he proceeded to take off my shoe and give me a foot massage. Would have loved to capture this with a photo:)
