Some Family Fun + A Thrifty Find

August 12, 2011

Like I mentioned before, every Thursday night is Family Night at my parents’ house. The weather has been so gorgeous lately and last night was no exception. It was perfect!

The little cousins played hula hoops and rode scooters and tuckered themselves out!

Little Violet watched the action from the sidelines….for now.

My neice Nya looking awfully sweet. But don’t let her fool you – she’s got some spunk!

In case you care (sorry about all this mommy-talk), potty training Jack has been, well, I’m not even sure what to say. It’s been challenging to say the least. I don’t think I’ve ever cleaned up so many puddles in my life. He has yet to actually go in the toilet. I don’t remember that Avery was so difficult to train, but maybe I just forget.

Oh, boy…all I can do is keep trying!

Moving along….to my thrifty find for the week.

I know what you are going to say – why are you wearing a coat in the middle of summer?

Because I found it at Goodwill.

In their bargain bins.

For 85 cents.

It’s a really good quality coat from French designers Marithe Francois Girbaud.

And it fits me perfectly.

Score!

If you don’t shop at thrift stores, you really should try it sometime. It might just be the highlight of your week!:)

Happy Weekend Peeps!
