A "Thrifty" suprise!

Happy Monday! Doesn't it feel great to get a fresh start at a new week? It's just me & this goober for the week!

This morning I woke up early to send my hubs off for a week of jr high camp! Wahoo! I say "woke up" but really... right after I brought the clean laundry up from the basement for him - it was right back into the bed I went. That's the difference almost 5 years has made. :) And, in my defense... I did stay up well beyond midnight grinding coffee beans and doing laundry for his trip!

Anyway, hubs is gone :( We miss him - but, it's also a chance for me to spend some time getting all those house projects done! Today, I'm taking a total break from all of them, tho. Today is for resting and prepping for the rest of the week. So, Ava and I ventured up the street to buy stamps and on the way home we made a pit stop at the Salvation Army. I never do well in there. I never find anything amazing, and if I did I wouldn't know what I was looking at anyway. I have a hard time finding beauty in those places. Tho, I am working on it. I did find my piano bench a few weeks ago! Today was a "good find" day, too. I found all of the below items for UNDER $5!
The dress is just perfectly feminine and spotless! I can't wait to see my girlie in it! The Gap shirt was a suprise find & will pair wonderfully with the childrens place jeans I got on sale for $3 at the start of summer. Yay for next years wardrobe! And the boots are probably my fave find of the day. They were $1.99 and look like they've been worn maybe once. The bottoms don't even have dirt on them. :) Ava totally needed boots for this winter/fall and God has supplied them SUPER cheap! So, overall, a thrifty suprise day for me. :)

Yeah for great bargains! The boots look so cute, as well as the dress, shirt and socks. They are so much fun. I hope your week flies by and Brad is on the back porch before you know it.

Yeah for those one-in-a-million days when you just hit it right on the bargains!!! Although I'm really not desiring snow right now, it will be fun to see Ava in those snazzy boots! :)
Give us a call if you need anything this week! We could get there pretty snappy!

I heard a random fact somewhere that you only find something worthwhile at Goodwill every one in 10 times you go there -- I'd say that's usually true for me! Fun finds!

Let me know if you need some adult company this week!
