Putting it out there...

Somewhere, sometime, I read an interesting little tidbit. That when there is something that we are in need of (big or small) to throw it out there. Tell people what it is you are looking for and you quite possibly might find it.

For example, we were looking to replace Harmony's bed while we lived in Norfolk. Money was tight (isn't it always) and we didn't want to buy something. I mentioned this to my friend Candy. And guess what? Her daughter was getting rid of a perfectly good loft bed. She was off to college and so was getting a brand new bed set. How much was I charged for this bed? Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. As long as we picked it up, it was ours. Perfect condition. It has a desk that goes under it, and because she loves me, she threw in a desk chair too.

So here is what I am looking for. If you can help, great. If not, I tried! :)

Ben and I went out to South Finn yesterday to look around. We chose a house that is right next to the park. I can see the park from the living room and kitchen window. I was ecstatic. But I started thinking about how I am sure it will not be easy to get my kids to come in. So I would like to find a Fisher Price type table to put outside. I have a small one that is only a 2 seater. I know this is moving season around here so if you have one (or any yard toys really) that you are garage saling, getting rid of, or know someone who is, pass them my name will yah?

Second, Harmony and Ethan are growing like weeds. Every new uniform that I have bought for Ethan...holes. One pair of shorts had a huge hole in the bum! Harmony is getting really tall also. If you are moving and getting rid of uniforms, I would love to have them! Harmony wears about a size 10-11. Ethan...about the same.

And last but not least, all you who aren't local and can in no way send me a fisher price table, you can help with this one! :) I have sharing time this Sunday. But of course it is Mothers Day. I had an idea, but am not sure if I will have enough time to pull it off. So, any good ideas out there? Ones that you have done, or recieved or read about? Help a girl out ok?

And that is it. That is my list to send out in the universe! :)
