Score!

Since Noah's not here to share the bargain high I had today, I'm sharing it with the blogging world.

I've been on the hunt for a double jogger now that I've got that fun postpartum "muffin top" to get rid of yet again so I've been checking classified adds. Can I just say that double joggers are not an easy commodity to come by in Utah, but this morning the bargain Gods shined down on me. I logged onto ksl and saw the stroller pictured above (the BOB Sport Utility Stroller) for $75. To make sure I was getting a good deal, I googled it and what do you know, the retail on it is $429 new (this stroller is only 1 year old). The reviews call it the "BMW of joggers"--yeah! I phoned the seller (just two minutes after it had been posted) and left the house immediately to purchase it (on my drive to pick it up, 3 other less fortunate bargain hunters called on it).

That made me happy, as a good bargain often does. Another thing that made me very happy today was talking to Noah and realizing that because he will be gaining a day on his return trip home, he will arrive tomorrow night, not Saturday as we had originally thought! I think I shall do my hair tomorrow, and what the heck, I might even shave my legs. This has been one LONG week!

That does look like a nice jogging stroller!! Congrats on your new purchase! I just sold my double jogging stroller to my sister, maybe I should've posted it on KSL and got more money, huh?!!

I'll watch your kids while you shave your legs and do your hair... Oh, wait! I'm in Colorado! Are you sure you don't want to move here instead of Indiana?
