Thrifty Finds

So, I've been doing a little second hand shopping! Second hand shopping is hit or miss. The secret to being successful at it and scoring good deals is to go often. Not twice a day often but maybe once a week. I run into my favorite store at least once a week just to peruse the aisles to see if there are any new treasures.  Summer time is a great time to go because all the moms are cleaning out closets and playrooms! 

Here are a few of my favorite finds: 

Bakers Jelly Wedges. 


Lily Pulitzer mom shorts + nwt talbots


Lily Pulitzer capri and shirt


Matilda Jane Top and Skirt


Cartigans! Two are Anthropolgie

Anthro top and Matilda Jane top.

Ivy Jane capri. Super cute on.

Gap maxi. I can't tell if this is a skirt or a strapless dress. I wear as both...

Clothes Mentor was having 70% off clearance. I stocked up on some new jackets for less than $8 each. 

 Club Monaco classic jacket.

Those are my latest finds. Did you know I love love a good find! My friends tease me that my catch phrase is "I got it from Frisco Resale!" .

Weekend Review: Lucy's 8th Birthday and more!

We celebrated Lucy's 8th birthday on Saturday! I can't believe my little newborn, colicky baby is 8 years old! My how time flies. When she was born and I realized that she cried a lot, I was 95% sure I birthed an A-hole. I'm happy to say that she is the finest child that I've ever met. Full of personality, joy, empathy towards others, people pleaser, funny, good friend and she loves Jesus. (She's an elementary school evangelist as well) Every age is my favorite with this child but 8 is the bomb.com! Here's a few pictures from our weekend + last weekend.

I took dinner to a friend who has a new baby and then got to hold the lovie. I don't miss the baby days but man babies are so sweet!

Last week we saw the secret life of pets. My favorite part was during a fight scene, Henry stood on top of his chair and started throwing punches and cheering on the violence...

Lucy can't decide if she is a little girl or a big kid... She loves to snuggle and be rubbed on!

Saturday, Lucy and I got dressed up and went on a girls date. Our first stop was the nail salon for a mani/pedi.

Kendra Scott gives a birthday discount to all of its costumers. Since Lucy and I both have July birthdays we took advantage of our 50% off discount.

After girl's day, we went back home to get ready for Lucy's family party. She requested homemade lasagna and icecream cake.

Love this sweet girl.







I took this picture and realized it looked like we were advertising for the container store. We were not...



I made this kid wait all day to open her presents.

Showing off her new jewelry. 

The Birthday girl received a lot of shopkins! I don't get shopkins but she loves them!



Sunday we stayed home from church to let Daddy sleep. This chemo week has been rough. The kids enjoyed resting and playing at home with mama.
Wesley enjoyed resting.




Then we did some drawlering- Drawing+Coloring (Henry speak)


Lucy's new art box from her birthday!



That's it. That was our weekend!
Come back tomorrow fora look at my Thrifty Finds!

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.

Friday Favorites: Birthdays, Thrifts, and Office Tour.

one. Birthday.
My birthday was on Wednesday and I listed the 32 things I've learned in my 32 years.

two. Lucy's Birthday.
Lucy's birthday is tomorrow. My baby girl will be 8 years old. How did that happen? The past 4 years have gone by fast- the first 4 years were pretty slow...

three. Thredup.
Have you heard of thredup? My friend introduced it to me! She kept finding the cutest clothes for her, her daughter and her son! Y'all know I love a good deal! If you sign up here and make a purchase you get $10 off. Also, You get 40% off on your first purchase. I've been searching for the perfect selection for my first purchase! The inventory changes often!

four. Consignment
Speaking of consignment. I've found some great finds on my last visit to the thrift shop. Next week, look out for Thrifty Finds Tuesday. Here's a sneak peak.


Now's the time to do thrift shopping because moms are home and they are cleaning out the house!

five. Chemo
Jonathan finishes round 12 of chemo tonight. He's been doing it for a year and we have one year left to go. HALF WAY. He told the doctor that he wished he didn't have to do chemo for two years... and before anyone could answer I said, "While we are wishing for things, I wish you didn't have brain cancer...." Sometimes I think out-loud... It wasn't very supportive.

six. Presents.
Remember when I told you it was Lucy's birthday tomorrow. Well, ms. Lucy found all of her presents... "Mom, I just saw 2 of the shopkins you bought." She is just like my sister, Laura. There wasn't anything in the house that Laura didn't know about. She used to spider-man up a wall into our attic and tell everyone what they were getting for birthdays or Christmas.

seven. Office Tour.
I'm linking up with KellysKorner to share our office. It's the least interesting room in our house because I haven't done anything with it... But you can see how we live real life.





eight. Wesley the Parti Poodle.
Wesley is going to the groomer today! Update after his first haircut! Is that not the sweetest face?
