Dear Diary...a thriftin' we will go!

Today we stuck around town....everything was closed today that we hoped to do. No big deal...my mom has been dying for me to take her to all these thrift stores I've shopped at. So my son followed us around the stores with a camera...why they might be a little blury ;)

Mom bought tons of stuff and got me a few outfits ...vintage/anthropologie style...I love them and maybe tomorrow I will model them for you! :) Today was my lucky day!












Then dad treated the kids to Burger King...can't remember the last time I ate there. Whatever happened to Happy Meal boxes...these came in a paper bag...my dad said, "Here's your Sad Meal!" hahahaha

Took parents to my favorite Mennonite store...I get all my baking goods here and cheese...glorious cheese!!! :)

Then we came home and ate leftover potroast and potatoes I cooked all day yesterday! Yummy! And watched Planet Earth....I'm going to drink my hot tea now ...

Oh I forgot to add that my soldier finally called me today...after three loooong days of not hearing from him. I hate that he is missing out on all the fun!!!! If you're reading this Teddy, I cannot find a word in the dictionary to describe how much I am missing you! I listened to Josh Groban today....I think I will have "when you say you love me" sung when we renew our vows!

Checking in after a few weeks absence! Thrilled to hear your family is visiting and even better that you got to go Thrift Store Shopping. Now that is my kind of vacation!

I am on pins and needles waiting to see the great things you picked up.

Until then...a tout alors!

How lovely to have family around you. I wished my mom or my mother in law were here that we can do shopping together.
I am excited about the news coming from your soldier :-)

Oh not fair; you guys look like you are having a blast! We will get together before your parents leave one way or another. Owen is feeling great now and nobody else got sick, praise the Lord for that! Although John's grandma passed away yesterday morning so things are hectic here for the next couple of days. i am hoping maybe Saturday we can get together I will call you on Thursday and let you know whats going on! Have some fun for me!
