My Most Recent CSN Store Purchase

For simply writing a few posts about CSN Stores I was given a gift certificate to use at one of their multiple stores. DH & I and have been hunting for the right night stands for years. The ones we have found that we liked have all cost way more than we are willing to pay.

I found these on CSN Store. Adding my own money to the gift certifcate, I ordered two for our bedroom.

I also looked at Sears.ca to see if I could find anything comparable.

I found this almost identical night stand. All measurements are the same as the other one. Notice the price. For one of these from Sears, it would cost more than I paid in total (even without the GC), including international fees, shipping & tax for the 2 from CSN Stores.

Is that not unbelievable?

I received my order approx. 2 weeks after ordering - not bad really. Unfortunetly, one of the night stands was damaged and will have to be returned.

The other one looks great!

And you can see how close the wood colour is to my bed.

Happy family Day!

Today in Ontario, it is Family Day - what that means is it is a paid day off work YAH!

It means time for me to catch up on the laundry I didn't do on the weekend because I was scrambling to finish the quilt and cooking for the baby shower.

Happy family Day :)

Candice's Baby Shower

My nephew Chris and his girlfriend Candice are expecting their first baby in mid-March.

Today we held a baby shower for her. Oh by the way, she knows she is having a girl - it kind of explains all the pink!

Note: The guy is not the Daddy, but a really good friend of the soon to be Mommy.

 The Mommy to be



 The littel girl is Candice's neice

 My brother Don made the cake - the blocks say Baby 
(only I am too short to get a good shot!)

 The cake was SO good!

 We tuckered the puppies out!
It was a great shower - thanks to good friends & family!
