A Day Off

Well, I survived another race weekend.  And I know I'm not old, but I sure feel like it by the end of the weekend.  I can't handle them like I did a few years ago.  After I got home last night I showered and immediately went to bed, around 10:00pm.  I had the day off today (thank goodness!!!), so I didn't set my alarm and I slept til 10:00am. 12 solid hours of sleep!  It was wonderful :) 

After finally getting out of bed closer to 10:30, I did laundry and cleaned up the house a little for a while, and then headed out to enjoy the absolutely gorgeous day we had.  My first stop though was at Mahoney's to finally get a pair of Toms.  I've been saying no to all sorts of cute shoes for a while, so I could get Toms instead.  I went with the Classic in red.  You can't go wrong with a classic, and red shoes are just fun.  




After that I went to Panera and sat outside and enjoyed a smoothie while reading and journaling for a while.  




When I finished up at Panera I still had a little bit of time before I needed to head to small group, so I went to Goodwill.  The change between fall/winter and spring/summer is always a good time to hit up the Goodwill because people tend to do a lot of cleaning and get rid of stuff, so the Goodwills are usually nicely stocked.  And this trip turned out to be very successful!  I got this pair of light blue J. Crew shorts in perfect condition for less than $5!


And I got two new (to me) kitchen gadgets.  In this post I mentioned that I don't have a potato masher; well, I found one for 77 cents!  And I also got this cute lil citrus juicer for $2.97.  Whenever I make anything that calls for fresh lemon juice I always wish I had a juicer, and now I do!  It has a little chip on the handle (if that's what you want to call it), but that just gives it more character.



Have you had any good thrifting finds lately?

  2. Oh I need to go to some thrift stores now that the seasons are changing! I had never thought about the fact that they probably have some good stuff! And I love your juicer! I have one that I use all the time but it's plastic and I love the way the glass ones look!
