Hello Blogland!! Everyone having a fabulous weekend?? The hubster and I spend the weekend at our church Marriage Retreat. It was a wonderful time-great hotel, awesome food, lot’s of laughs. We look forward to it every year.
Others who go get all excited about visiting the huge malls where it’s located. We used to live about 3 miles from the hotel so it’s our old stomping ground. I tell everyone I didn’t go to the malls when we LIVED in the area, much less now.
We did stop at a new Goodwill that opened nearby. It was the PITS. Now I love to dig and hunt but this place was pure chaos!!! There was no organization for the clothing. EVERYTHING was just randomly stuffed on racks regardless of what it was, what size, or even if it was men’s, womens, or kids. The shoes were thrown on top of the racks in the same fashion.
I got lucky–my eagle eye spotted a pair of nice boots amongst the jumble. They were dark chocolate-brown leather Nine West flat boots IN MY SIZE for $5!! From the wear on the bottom and inside they were barely worn at all. Oh yes they came home with me!
We stopped at Walmart this afternoon to pick up some groceries. I was in the produce section getting my weekly supply of veggies and fruit when I saw this lady whose outfit just blew me away. I went over and complimented her on it. She remarked that she had thrifted the skirt and top and had the jacket forever. I asked her if I could take her picture for the blog. She was tickled to death!! After I took her picture she said maybe all this attention would get her a date for dinner and dancing tonite!! We then looked around at all of the “Walmartians” and both said “Nah!!!” Here she is looking very visible and fabulous! I would totally wear this outfit!!
I dressed super casual this weekend. Totally forgot to take a picture on Saturday but you aren’t missing anything exciting.
Sweater-CJBanks/Thrifted, Shirt-Thrifted, Jeans-LeeRider/Retail, Shoes-Retail
Everything is thrifted or DIY (pendant)
I’m going to be pretty casually dressed for work this week. I’m moving into another office. The former “tenant” retired last week. He was a complete filthy PIG and left it disgusting. So I’m breaking out the rubber gloves and Lysol and giving it a good scrub before I move in. My current office is in an old storage closet (it’s huge) but the location is crappy. I have to pass through another office to get to it. All the grumblers and whiners congregate outside my door and I’m sick of listening to their crap all day long. They are totally harshing my mellow!!! So a bit of scrubbing and such and I’ll have a nice quiet office far far away from them!!
I’ll be linking up today with the rest of the gorgeous ladies for Visible Monday!! and Lakota’s Tah-Dah Tuesday as I think Miz anna deserves a big Tah-Dah!! I’ll be back Tuesday!! I hope to catch up on all of your blogs later tonite!!
