You know, I trudge through marching band season, wondering if it’s ever going to end. And it does, and we move on.
But today was such a great day.
It was the 50% off sale at Goodwill. Let me share a little bit of what I got:
I got these shoes for 5 bucks.
Those aren’t the exact shoe – -since it’s mens. They’re a women’s cut of a similar shoe and it seriously feels like I am walking air… yummy. I also got 4 other pair of shoes. One of which looks a lot like this (for 10 bucks):
I got a cute maxi dress, this is a similar cut but my strips are horizontal and while it may not be the most attractive mo-moo out there, I’m probably going to LOVE wearing it in the summer!
I found princess P a bunch of clothes to go on the Disney princess dolls. Now we just need to find a princess (a little Minnie came with it but I can’t get a lot of the clothes on her). I also found about 10 minature barbies and while I’m not a barbie fan I am loving how these fit in a little purse for her to take to PTO meeting.
Anyway, it’s always fun to get new things and while I know a lot of people think shopping at the Goodwill is beneath them, they are likely not married to a teacher and are trying to put any “extra” money towards a masters degree. Hence, nothing is above us. 🙂
But we still feel like we have a lot. 🙂
Also, we got to go out to the Haji Babba with friends for dinner and then over for a Krispy Kreme to finish off the evening on a sweet note. I feel very lucky today. A reminder that life is long and has many ups and downs.
