I wasn't "Born" yesterday
HoneyBaked doesn't have as much ham as I do today! LOL
An unforseen benefit has come to me because of this blog. My husband was feeling like everyone out there would wonder if I have been FORCED to buy at thrift stores. So, he went to Macy's and bought this outfit from I.N.C. , AND....the boots. The boots are the bomb! Bombalicious even. They are from "BORN". There is supposed to be a slash through that "O", But, I don't know how to make it from my keyboard. I love their footwear! (love, Love, LOVE). They are ankle height and have a distressed look (so do I in this picture...hahaha). And of course they have buckles which I adore. So, no thrifting today, but WOW! Thanks for suprising me with a new outfit Grant!
I am sure I will be able to work much harder now that you paid full price for this........
So, why do I thrift? It is the thrill of the hunt, the joy in seeking and the gasp of suprise when I find a treasure! (I actually screamed when I found the Gucci jeans). And I love that I am helping others better thier lives because of what I do. My kids have been donating things (clothes, toy, their allowance, etc..) for years to Project Safe, so I hope I am teaching them to give back. And you never know when you may be the one in need sometime.
October is almost here and have we got a fun suprise for our readers....stay tuned for a Octoberlicious month!
