Thrifty Thursday!

Oh man, it’s Fall Break and the days have completely gotten away from me. Last Saturday, our first day of Fall Break, I ditched the family and went out to Dothan with the derby girls to participate in our local Buddy Walk. Then after a quick costume change and face stuffing we took off to Montgomery to sub in a bout between the Montgomery team and the North Georgia Roller Girls. It was SO much fun. I love subbing. I dont have to jam and there’s no real pressure. Just go out and hit people. I feel like we worked really well with the team we helped too which is nice never having played with them before.

Anyway, Monday was junkin day, Tuesday we didn’t get out of our pjs all day, and Wednesday I had to get a wisdom tooth yanked. Not fun. So I spent the evening like this.

The pain pills they gave me knock me out. Once it kicked in T cut me off from watching any more of our Netflix shows because I kept nodding off. Dang.

Anyway, today I’m feeling a lot better than I thought I would be but am still skipping derby tonight (gasp!) Something about shoving a mouth guard in my mouth and super exerting myself just doesn’t sound like a good plan today.

SO, I did laundry. Which is good because there was some thrifted stuff in there I needed to share. But I couldn’t remember what all I bought Monday…and what was from past junkin trips. Which is bad. There’s too much. T also cut me off from junking until I take some of the stuff we don’t want OUT of the house. Or at least hang up/put away the previous weeks finds. I’m a hoarder. I’ll work on it. But for now I’ll just show you what I did find.

Layla got some golf shoes. They’re the same brand T has (I think) and I also think they fit her. Or at least aren’t too small. It’s a good thing. I was excited anyway…

I found this wooden mailbox thing and I probably definitely dont need it. But Melissa said I did and like I said, I’m a hoarder. So it came home with me. Maybe I’ll hang it outside the front door…even though we have a mailbox on the curb. I dunno. Maybe I can find some fun in the house use for it. Or out on the breezeway. Any suggestions for it? I do love it.

THIS I was pretty excited about. Even though it’s really only going to be good for moon viewing I think…and right now the moon isnt out any time before we go to bed so it’s just kind of fun to look at… Hopefully it will be worth the $20.

This is from a couple weeks ago. Or last week? I dont know. But it’s a globe! I’ve always wanted one.

And some clothes. I love the dress on the left. The 2 little shirts for Timmy are fun. Not sure on the sweater thing yet but it was $1…the top shirt looks little big but it’s just a Gap medium so maybe I’m bigger than I think and it will fit nicely. And the flannel…omg. Softest shirt ever. Totally a mans shirt but I dont think I care.

Since we’re already halfway through fall break and I hadnt dont anything I meant to do while kids were off I made myself take them for haircuts today. Look how shaggy Timmy is. Eek! I’ve already trimmed his bangs out of his eyes twice. It was time to just take them in. I’m just so lazy.

After.

Thrifty Thursday!

It’s that time of week again! I am really excited for this week’s Thrifty Thursday post. Some of you who follow me on Instagram saw the little preview I posted on Monday after our shopping trip. Good stuff!

First, not pictured…. L got a melon colored polo shirt. She’s going to a golf clinic so I figured she’l need more collared shirts. Also, I got a stoneware casserole dish. Very exciting! The 57 pictures I took of it all look like poo so you don’t get to see it. Just know that it makes me happy and I spent $3 on it.

Ok… onto this. It was hanging with the fancy dresses and we saw it on our way to the checkout when we were done. I didn’t know what it was…that awkward length between dress and shirt…but the tag was pink. It was $1! I’ll take it. After getting it home and trying it on I think I could wear it with… leggings.  I’m so not a leggings person. But I think I might need to figure it out.

lace dress

Oh, the kids both got a new pair of Levis.

levi jeans

The buttons on L’s are like diamonds so I’m sure they will be too girly and she wont wear them. I wont bring it to her attention if you don’t…

And finally my favorite thing that I’ve found at the Enterprise Christian Mission:

Prada bag

Um, what? A Prada bag? I’ll take it. And it’s only $25?? Yes please.

Now, finding it at the mission makes me skeptical. I lived in Korea for 2 years and have been down in the secret back rooms of the purse shops where they keep the really nice fakes…this could very well be fake. BUT…it’s still a lot less than I paid for my fake Coach bag. And it smells amazing. AND it’s so so soft. And there are no suckers/fruit snacks/cookie crumbs mashed into the bottom of it.

Also, it fits my camera and has a long cross body strap option. Perfecto.

I think it was a good purchase.

Im in love.

Thrifty Thursday!

Comin at ya today with a quick Thrifty Thursday post that almost didn’t happen. I swear the world was against me getting out on Monday, our usual junkin day. After running around all morning and finally giving up on the idea of making it out to the mission the planets aligned and Melissa and I ran out before we had to get the big kids from school. Whew!

First, check out this dress. I got it a few weeks ago and just now got around to wearing it. It’s too hot for long dresses…I was hoping it would be fallish if I wore it. I was still hot.

When we got there I really didn’t feel like I was finding much. After trying all day to get there I couldn’t bring myself to want anything.

Until this. Melissa said no but it had the half off tag.

It’s my Johnny Cash shirt.

She ended up finding these shoes for Timmy. Good eye. I didn’t see anything on the shoe shelves.

And finally THIS. My gramma had one. I remember it from when I was little. The latch on it doesn’t really hook but it does stay shut. I got it for $1 since it was broken.

Pretty excited about it.

But that’s it…only three things this week.
