Los Rodriguez Mansion: Ready for Halloween!

During our stay in Chris and Danielle’s home in Cincinnati we got really excited about their Halloween decorations. They love Halloween and at that point we hadn’t even thought about decorating our house. It’s not that we don’t like Halloween but we didn’t want to pay full in-season prices for Halloween decor (as Dani said: “Never pay full price…EVER!”) So we decided that we would wait until after Halloween to buy some decorations when they go on super sale and store them for next year. Of course (silly us) our plan didn’t work… During nuestra estadia es casa de Dani y Chris en Cincinnati, quedamos muy prendidos con sus decoraciones de halloween. A ellos les encanta halloween y en ese momento ni siquiera habiamos pensado en decorar nuestra casa. No es que no nos guste halloween, sino que no queriamos paga el precio de decoraciones que estan en plena temporada (como Dani dijo: Nunca paguen precio completo! NUNCA!) Asi que nos convencimos que teniamos que esperar hasta despues de halloween para comprar algunas decoraciones cuando esten en super liquidacion y guardarlas para el proximo ano. Claro (tontos nosotros) el plan no funciono….
A few weeks ago, Leslie found great Fall decorations (note: not halloween, but fall) at Michaels on sale. She bought a lot of little things but the Halloween stuff wasn’t on sale at that point. When we started decorating the house, we noticed that we were missing a couple of pieces to finish the decorating and tie everything together. So Leslie went back to Michaels to get those last items (at that point on SUPER sale). To her surprise, Halloween decorations were 50 to 70% off already!! Obviously, this was a sign for us to buy a few so we could enjoy a decorated house this year and not have to wait until next – and so the neighborhood kiddos would know that we’re all about that trick-or-treating. Un par de semanas atras, Leslie encontro decoraciones de otono (nota: no de halloween, de otono) en Michaels en liquidacion. Compro un monton de cositas pero las cosas de halloween no estaban en liquidacion todavia. Cuando comenzamos a decorar la casa, nos dimos cuenta que nos faltaban un par de piezas para terminar las decoraciones y que todo se viera bien. Asi que Leslie volvio a Michaels a comprar esos ultimos detalles (en ese momento en SUPER liquidacion). Para su sorpresa, las decoraciones de halloween estaban a 0 – 70% de descuento! Obviamente, esta era una senal para nosotros para comprar y poder disfrutar una casa decorada este ano sin tener que esperar hasta el proximo – asi los ninos del vecindario pueden saber que estamos totalmente identificados con dulce o travesura.











Leslie used her decorative eye to stretch our budget to the max and satisfy her quota of cute decorations and my requirement for spooky decorations. Overall, she found a ton of great stuff for both of us and our home is now ready to greet those kiddos asking for candy. Man, dentists must love Halloween!!! Leslie uso su ojo decorativo para estirar nuestro presupuesto al maxiomo y satisfacer su deseo de decoraciones tiernas y mi requisito de decoraciones que den miedo. Despues de todo, encontro un monto de cosas para los dos y nuestra casa ahora esta lista para recibir a esos ninos pidiendo dulces. Los dentistas estan felices con halloween!!!
Now don’t be fooled – just because we have our decorations doesn’t mean that we won’t hit the post-season sales and stock up on a few more decorations for next year. Maybe we can find some of the more expensive things at a more affordable price…so get ready  all you kids planning on visiting the Rodriguez Mansion in 2013…..it’s going to be SPOOKY!! MUAH HA HA HA!!!!! No se confundan – solo porque tenemos decoraciones no significa que no visitaremos las liquidaciones post-temporada y nos llenaremos de de decoraciones para el proximo ano. Tal vez podemos encontrar cosas mas caras a mejore precios…asi que preparense ninos que piensan visitar la mansion Rodriguez el 2013….va a ser de TERRO!!! MUAH HA HA HA!!!!!!
