G IS FOR GOOD...

I am joining Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday and 
Suzanne over at Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingy Thursday
 
 Today's post is brought to you by the letter  G...
I was Going to do a Green post for St Patrick's Day but thought...hmmm...might be a lot of Green today so instead I will do a G is for GOOD
Today my friend Sandie and I had a Girls Day out.  We lunched at

 
Rafferty's.  Sorry no photos of the yummy food, but I was hungry and just dug in!  I had some Great potato soup & a sandwich and Sandie had the Grilled chicken salad.
It was soooo GOOD and we Gabbed, Giggled and had a Great time.
Next was shopping!
 

So many of you have mentioned finding great Goodies at this store so this was my first visit to HomeGoods!  So much fun.
 

Great assortment of dishes and accessories
 

Some Green dishes
  
Green items for St Patrick's Day
 

A little rooster love for my friends (see the Green)
 

I am lucky to have met this Great Gal and we have become Great Girfriends!  Sandie at Chatty Crone
She has a Groovy fun blog so check it out.
 
More Rooster love!
 

These are my Goodies I bought at HomeGoods
 

Really Great Good friends also share coupons so I was able to buy these really cute Easter Goodies for under $5 at World Market.
  
Wait, what is this Gorgeous Green Gift??
 

It's an Egg cup from my Girlfriend Sandie.
Thank you for such cuteness!
 

On the way home I stopped at another Great place
Goodwill!  Look what I found.  Great bargains.
 

Gaze at these bargains from another thrift shop 
 

Including two more items for my Flamingo collection

I had a Great Day with a Good Girlfriend! 

Gee, how was your day?

Always,
Linda

G is for GOOD GIRL LINDA.
Sounds like you had a great girlfriend day. Is it really your first time at Home Goods? In Canada it's called Home Sense. No coupons though.
Love all you Good things.

Love Ya
Love Claudie

I'm so glad you found more flamingos. I love that rose tea cup and saucer. We have a Home Goods about 30 minutes away, and I've never been there. I'm afraid to go - afraid I'll break the bank. lol

I've never seen coupons for Home Goods. Isn't that store the BEST?

Hello Linda! Thanks for your kind words for my Miley. I'm hoping she just walks up to the door.
We could sure do some shopping! I have never been to Home Goods, I'm afraid to go. But I do like Goodwill. You did good girl!
Enjoy your weekend.

Looks like you had a blast. I would love to have a homegoods store near me, but it's about an hour away, but Goodwill is a weekly stop for me.
