So there’s a possibility of snow this weekend.  Big Deal.  We’re from Ohio . . . we’ve got this.  (Right?)  Sigh.  Well, here are 8 things you can do indoors this weekend!  I hope you enjoy the weekend!

Okay, I’ll be honest, I have a vested interest here because I’m selling like a bajillion toddler and baby toys at this sale.  But it’s a good one for baby items and clothes, kids clothes, maternity items, toys, etc.  The half price sale starts at 1:00 PM and there is usually a line, so plan to arrive a little early!
