A. Shecky’s was fantastic! I snagged this unique and adorable ‘Arabella Kimono’ from liamolly for a great price:
They were sold out of the shoes I wanted (so sad) but the lady is going to send me pics of the same style in a different color so there may be hope yet.
Did I mention the ginormous goodie bag you get at the event?? Ginormous. Can’t wait to go again next year.
B. The garage and estate sales were a HUGE success! We bought way too many things but they were just too hard to pass up at the prices. We got some beautiful antique furniture we plan to fix up and I found vintage postcards and greeting cards as well as a couple of old school calligraphy books that I have some fun plans for. The best was probably the vintage Christian Dior dress I picked up for $3 bucks (!!!) and some brand new YSL pants for $50, along with some other great designer pieces (all the rest were $3 as well), from a lady who spent the last few years as a merchandiser. Pictures will be posted soon.
3. We did indeed learn how to tie a bow-tie and dress 007 up and he most certainly did not enjoy it. Evidence of disgruntlement:
IV. Bear took me out for an impromptu Saturday night date at Armando’s where the food was good and the people were really good-looking. Fun excuse to dress up.
E. My parents came in this morning and I got a huge birthday present early: a new DSLR camera , a Nikon D3000!! My parents, Bear and Momma and Papa Bear pitched in and I am SO ecstatic to learn how to use it and try it out. Yes, you heard correctly, I have no idea how to use it. But rest assured there will be ungodly amounts of pictures taken of the furbabies (thanks for the adorable term Kristin!) as well as pretty much everything else. It will be used nonstop during our next weekend’s birthday trip to the Texas Hill Country (a wine country second only to Napa in the U.S.). Yes I have a birthday MONTH, don’t hate. And I have the best family in the whole wide world. Be jealous.
Is it really Sunday night already? Boooooooo.
P.S. We got a bathroom scale and I found out I lost not only 3 inches, but also 5 pounds! Whoo!
