The average woman will spend more than EIGHT YEARS of her life shopping...

This info comes from onepoll.com and is sooooo interesting,

"Buying household essentials and keeping the family fed and clothed means the typical female shops for a staggering 25,184 hours and 53 mins over a period of 63 years. The research also found women will make 301 individual shopping trips - lasting a total of 399 hours and 46 minutes - per year. A spokesman for OnePoll said: ''Many men seem to think women only shop when they are buying clothes for themselves. ''But they quite often shop for the entire family and that can be incredibly hard work.'' Even the food shop can take over an hour to complete and with 84 food shops a year, women will spend 94 hours and 55 minutes browsing the supermarket. Women also dedicate 90 shopping trips a year to keeping up appearances - shopping for clothes 30 times, shoes 15 times, accessories 18 times and toiletries 27 times."

Holy exhausting ladies!!! Get your hubbies to give you a big hug and kiss for saving them so much money and keeping them fed.

This weekends giveaway is for a Melissa and Doug floor puzzle (your choice). We just got in a HUGE shipment of M & D including their new brownie sets (sooooo cute), cupcake sets, sugar cookies and more play food. Come on in and check it out. Just leave a comment to enter.

The winner is #3, Tiffany. Congrats! You can come pick up your prize at the store.

Sorry, I am so spacey this week. Next time somebody comment to me and remind me so I'm not so flaky. This week we are upgrading the lighting at the store (it's been bugging me for only 5 and a half years). Come in and check it out.

New arrivals this week are: a huge, gorgeous lot of size Small and 4 junior clothing in super fun and trendy styles, a huge lot (over 40 pieces) of girls 7/8 clothes in bright spring colors, a darling wrought iron, sleigh style full size bed and a Pottery Barn shelf. And that's just an itty, bitty sample of what's come in. Spring cleaning is definitely in full force in Tooele. Hooray for our inventory and your shopping choices!!!

Weekend Freebie 4/17

In order to keep up better with the blog giveaway, I am changing it to weekend freebies instead of Freebie Friday. That way there is a little more flexibility (at least in my own expectations :) on posting our weekly giveaway.

Hope that works for everybody! The winner will be drawn on Mondays. This week's giveaway is a tile pendant of your choice and a chain to wear it with. There are a ton of fun patterns to choose from and these are locally made by one of my fave mom/artist/crafters. To enter leave a comment!

Freebie Fri-Saturday...4/10

Hope you all had a great Easter! Due to the holiday, there was no Freebie Friday post last week. It's been an exciting week at Sweet Pea. We've had construction and carpeting. But at the end, it looks much better, and our annoying lump in the floor is gone and we got to do a bit of Spring cleaning and rearranging. This week, to celebrate our new carpet and make it up to you for missing last week, we are going to do 3 giveaways! Leave a comment to enter for one of three $10 gift certificates to Sweet Pea. Also, if you haven't had a chance, feel free to meander over to www.sweetlizzies.blogspot.com for our first Sweet Lizzie's giveaway.
