savers steal

10 Apr

I have a new found love for thrift store shopping. It’s something that I always was interested in, but not something I really found the time to do. BUT, lately I’ve found myself HUNTING for amazing deals, good finds, and funky pieces of clothing to add to my wardrobe. I’m really learning to buy AND wear pieces that I absolutely LOVE. Even if no one else seems to like them. If I like how it looks, fits and feels, then that’s ALL that matters. And I’m having so much more fun shopping for clothes when I don’t really care what others are going to think about it! SO, I’ve been visiting Savers regularly. There’s an AMAZING one that opened near my house and I am always dying to run in and see what I can find. I have YET to be disappointed. So I thought I would start sharing my finds here with you from time to time! Thrift shopping isn’t hard. I hear SO many people say that they just have no luck at stores like Savers. But I think it takes a little time, a little sorting through the clothes, AND a little decision making. Like, deciding whether or not YOU like it and wearing it no matter what anyone is going to think.

I found these black little pretties last weekend and I wore them on Easter Sunday. They were FOUR DOLLARS PEOPLE. What a steal! I am obsessed with flats because I’m tall and I don’t have time for high heels frankly. I love how high heels look, but I just don’t really want to wear them. But that doesn’t mean I need to be stuck in ‘frumps-ville’ in the shoe department!! There are SO many adorable, funky flats out there. You just have to find them! So I saw these, tried them on and they fit like a glove!

Seriously my new favorite find right now. And they were four bucks. You can’t beat that!

finding time

30 Oct

It’s actually been really, really great having Jay home these past few weeks. Honestly, we haven’t had too much down time since he lost his job; our photography business has exploded! It’s just been crazy and so, so good. I don’t think we’ve ever been this busy in our entire lives- and that’s without any solid commitments to ministry at the moment!

That said, we are still finding time- in between all the edits, applying for jobs, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, clipping coupons and applying for insurance- to make time for a few fun things with our little man. Halloween isn’t necessarily one of my favorite holidays ever, but since it’s tomorrow it’s still fun to do a few things to begin to get into the spirit of the holidays! (the holidays?? When did that happen?!)

After Cruz woke up from his morning nap yesterday (which he’s getting ready to drop and I’m not sure how I feel about it), we ate some lunch at home and then headed out to get him some new shoes. Since it’s been chilly here, I’ve noticed that he doesn’t really have any good shoes! Since he’s been such a small little guy up until now and since it’s so hot in the summer, I hardly ever put shoes on him! I just let those little footers go free all summer long! But now he’s starting to walk and it’s getting cold. So we headed to Dillard’s and got him a pair of grey Converse.

And boy, are they cute!!

They also convieniently match his costume that he is going to wear for Halloween- he’s going to be an elephant!! We have a great friend who passed down a costume she had from when her son was Cruz’s age. We are thrilled and can’t wait to post pictures of him in this costume.

So stay tuned for that!

After we bought his shoes we let him play in the toddler play area at the mall. He loved it, even though he hates wearing shoes since he’s not used to it.
