It's Almost Rebecca's Birthday

I am sooooo excited about Rebecca's birthday next week. Not because she's turning 4 since I would be happy if stayed 3 for the rest of MY life. This has been such a great age with her and while I am enjoying watching her mature and grow up before my very eyes, I would rather she stayed just like she is.
Anyhow, I digress. The reason I am so excited is what I managed to snag at Target today. I just stopped in to grab a few things that Taylor needed for a school project and was wandering around while she found them. They have a gazillion toys in the back on clearance. So I was looking around to see if there was anything that I thought Rebecca might like. While I was searching the aisles I found a Smart Cycle in the area that was marked 30% off. I was intrigued because I really wanted to get one of these for her for Christmas but just couldn't see paying $100. So I slid it off the shelf to see how much it was was only $49.99. Oh My Goodness. I was tickled pink.
I called Dan to make sure he was ok with the purchase, left Taylor and Teresa to guard the game in a cart, went home to get my Target credit card and came back and bought that sucker. I still can't believe it. I have been wanting one for quite some time but the price made it impossible. I am such a bargain shopper that I couldn't see paying that much for a video game that would only be able to be used until they outgrow the weight limit.
I can't wait until her birthday to see if she likes it as much as I do.

Awesome find! I was tempted by that, also, but opted for something else in the Target clearance aisle. I could have spent at least an hour going up and down the aisles in search of good deals. :)

Thanks for the blog designer recommendation. I'll go check her out! I was actually visiting a blog this morning that was designed by her and was impressed.

I love finding great toys reduced in price. Target has a super summer sale every year and I stock up on toys. I bought my son an ESPN baseball game (the baseballs shoot out for hitting) It was originally close to 50.00 and I got it for 10.00
I told my Mom and she went to the store and bought the last 3 for grand kids and a train table - originally 100.00 for 30.00. to put away for my sons upcoming 3rd b-day this summer. Loooooooooove it.
