That's where Lou Lou and I were yesterday, Cut Bank, Montana. We heard there was a JC Penney's and an Albertsons so we thought why not. We can drive 1 1/2 hours, talk and sing to XM and shop. Easy. It doesn't take a lot to make us happy, no sirree. I wish I had brought my camera though. This JC Penney's was built in 1950 and is downtown on main street. Old. It seemed like everyone that walked in was greeted by a friend and had lots to talk about. That's how small towns are I suppose. Actually, I know that's how small towns are because I live in a smaller town than Cut Bank. There is always some one you know or recognize and sometimes they are your relatives, which I am getting used to.
The deals in Penney's were crazy! And I mean crazy. I spent $71.00 and saved $217.97! Is that not fun? Lou Lou spent just under $50.00 and saved over $300.00!! I bought a cardigan set for $3.94. And a corduroy shirt for $1.97. Even if we wear the clothes for a season or two or even a time or two, who cares right, because a lot of things can be $1.97 cute, right Cher? (we think about you often while clothes shopping) We were in that store for close to three hours and that store was small.
We then headed over to Albertsons. I spent more and saved less, but I did come home with fun stuff that I can't buy here. Little Ben and Jerrys ice cream, 10 for $10.00. Buttermilk Ranch dressing packets for my Cafe Rio recipe, strawberry cake mix for Michelle, Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup for 59 cents (I can't even buy it at one of the grocery stores here which totally boggles my mind), and one of my all time favorite cookies, Nabisco iced animal cookies! The price on those don't even matter!
Because I spent so much at Albertsons I was congratulated with 300 bonus labels for Campbells Labels for Education. Who wants them? I would be happy to put the coupon in the mail. It might just push your child's classroom over the top and win a party. You never know. I'm serious you guys. First come first serve!
We had a super fun day. Next week is my turn to visit Lou Lou and I think I might go to her RS Birthday Party which could be fun, but not fun like Cutbank, Montana!
This is Sweet Magic Mocha, one of Dixie's newest foals. One week old! Oh, it's a girl and that would be a filly. Can you tell this is Lou Lou and not me? Probably.
And by the way, Cut Bank was not so cold. It must have been the coldest spot at one time, one day,so they grabbed the title and ran with it. A small town has to have claim to something right?
