Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope everyone is wearing some green and avoiding being pinched.
I’ve had a bit of luck of my own today. It seems that my Irish name is working out well for me.

Today, I’m back at our condo, attempting to get it ready to rent out and have been up to my eyeballs in paint. We figured that sprucing up would make it more appealing. Duh. Earlier, I made a quick trip to Lowes to check out their mistints and see if there was anything worth scooping up. Since I’m not going to be around to enjoy the new paint colors, I’m not that picky, but I did want something that had a neutral tone. Lucky for me I found 2 one gallon buckets of paint that were only $5 each. Score!
I lugged my paint up to the check out counter, so proud of my fabulous finds. I knew that these colors would work perfectly for what I needed, which were for Pinky’s old room here and her new room out east. While the cashier rung up my purchases, he exclaimed that I would also be getting a $5 rebate because one of the paints was premium. Score again! If you did your math correctly, that means that I ended up only paying $5 for 2 gallons of paint. That is pretty amazing and I wouldn’t hestitate to say LUCKY.
