Its a Beautiful Mornin'!

It's a better world now that Osama Bin Laden is no longer in it!

Lindsay and David had to go back to New Hampshire but I got to spend Saturday with them! We got to do a sisters sleepover on Friday after we ate dinner at Panera and Rachael came over for a 'spa night'. I was really tired so 'spa night' consisted of me watching Lindsay and Rachael paint their nails on my living room floor. We were too sleepy to do our homemade spa facials but we had a good time like we usually do!

The next morning we were ready to wake up early to do the March of Dimes walk. The weather was supposed to be really bad but I woke up at 6:00 and decided we were going. Apparently the rest of my family decided they were not going. Lindsay and I were on our way when we called Rachael and our step-mom Janet who were still sleeping. The wind was crazy and we hadn't even walked one block when Lindsay started walking like a creep. She had blisters on her feet from her new shoes so we decided to turn around and go to breakfast (I still donated money to the March of Dimes for for all they know, I did walk... just in case you were concerned)

Before we went out, Lindsay cleaned my kitchen! I found her doing this:

Thanks again Lindz!

We went to Moe's, I highly recommend it! The place was packed though
We did manage to get some seats and I had the Denver breakfast sandwich and my daily dose of caffeine

Lindsay likes to model

I was a little messy with my sandwich. Then we realized that I got onion on The Onion
 After a little brekkie, we decided to do some thrifting! I love the thrill of the hunt!

Here's what I picked up. I feel like I tell people this all the time but I love going to thrift stores for books. I always find some great stuff and I think I only spend about $15.00 on all of these books. You don't go to find what you're looking for, but every once and a while you can pick up some good stuff. This reminded me of a post I just read on one of my favorite blogs, Budgets Are Sexy. J. Money wrote a great post about thrift stores and how some people think only poor people should shop there. I would love to hear your thoughts and I think you know what side of the fence I'm on!

Lindsay got David a mini hockey game and I thought it was too hilarious not to take a picture of. David missed out on the thrifting because he and my Dad went to the shooting range that morning.

p.s. Stella got a haircut! She looks like she's missing her legs in this photo but I swear they're still there.


  1. I love Stella's haircut! So perfect! And I LOVE thrift stores - I found an "I <3 Ronson" dress at Goodwill for $12 with the tag still on it. It was originally $90 and it was very cute. I wore it to a wedding recently. :) I'm not ashamed.

  2. Ah! I love this blog post. Love everything about it... The onion on the onion, the mini hockey game... Stella. Amazing. Can't wait to see you next weekend.

  3. Stacie--- you're killin' it with those thrift store finds girrrrl! Are we still thinking Friday night btw?

    Amanda--- Thank you dear! You are going to have to give me some bloggin' tips when I'm in town this weekend, your blog is looking awesome these days!
