Does anyone else have crazy pregnancy dreams? Like ones where you are being driven down a flooded street by two weather forecasters in a cargo van, then end up in the country where Jack Bauer and his long, lost Army friend from Bavaria toss pastrami at you and ask if you want swiss or provolone cheese?
Brittany talked me into going to Goodwill yesterday since we hadn't been in there in probably three months or more. We went to the Decker Blvd. Goodwill since they sort their clothes by size and color. Oh, yes. A pleasurable shopping experience. Definately more pleasurable than going to Wal-mart and having to stare at a half-naked Miley Cyrus poster pushing clothing I wouldn't wear, let alone any of my daughters, but I will save that post for another day.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw an entire rack, yes an ENTIRE rack of maternity clothes. I haven't been due in the summertime in almost ten years, so I didn't have any clothes for warm weather. I found five pairs of capris and four tops. Woohoo!
There's a denim pair, khaki, navy blue, white and black. The capris and the shirts were around $4 each. A little more than I'd spend if I were at a yard sale, but since no one is having a yard sale in an ice storm in the middle of January, I think this was an extraordinary deal.
Well, the exitement doesn't stop there. Oh, no. I thought I might run into Daffadeals (a local children's consignment) since I also needed another pair of jeans to get me through the winter. By the way, I found a pair at Goodwill, and when I tried them on they weren't my favorite style and they were a little bit big. But when I took them off I noticed the size on the tag, and the fact that they almost fit me, I began to rethink my love for the chocolate baked good. But, then I slapped myself back to my senses, and ran those babies back over to the rack where they came from. And fast.
Anyway. Like I said, I popped into Daffadeals to see if they had any jeans, and again I was not disappointed. I found a pair in a normal size that I totally love and they fit perfectly for $12, and when I got to the register, the heavens opened up and sang- they were discounted to only $6!
I also found Bailey a pair of Children's Place shoes there for $2.
Not to mention that while at Goodwill, I also snagged 7 summer shirts for the boys off of the $1 rack and Brittany found herself a pair of capris and three summer shirts.
It was a shopping success!
