Gearing up for Winter/Enjoying Fall

I had the most successful shopping trip ever yesterday.  First, my friend Jessica and I had lunch at a Mexican place and caught up on life.  We hadn't seen each other since about May, so it was really fun.  The food was fantastic.  I had a ginormous plate of steak nachos, and only finished about half of it.  I brought the rest home for G.  Then we went to Goodwill, Buffalo Exchange, and Crossroads Trading Company.  I was hoping to maybe find a warm winter coat or some boots that I liked and fit me well.  I did not even think of expecting that I would find both.  However, I found two pairs of perfect-fitting and super-cute boots at Goodwill for under $20 total.  I especially love the purple ones, because not only are they adorable, they're also the same color of purple as the University of Washington Huskies, which is where I went to school for two years and G is an alumnus of.  So that was really exciting, and then I found the cutest winter coat at Buffalo exchange.  I ended up having $10 left of what I had budgeted for one pair of boots and a coat.  The coat is from Juicy Couture and would have cost about $300 new.  I got it for $30! That's 90% off!

So my plans for today are to bake some more banana muffins, edit pictures for eBay, list my clothes for sale on eBay, then edit pictures for my blog if I still have time.  And I plan to do it all while catching up on my Hulu queue.

I also finished my Christmas shopping yesterday, and some of the things I ordered online for my roommates showed up today.  They're so cute that I had to share.

Antique Silver Robert Necklace

Colorful Hollow Owl Necklace

Black Camera Necklace
Would you believe that each one of these adorable necklaces is under $2 each?!  Sadly the owner closed down the Etsy shop after I made my purchase, so I can't go back and buy one of each of these necklaces for myself.  On the bright side, I only have two roommates so I still get to keep one of these necklaces :)


  1. That's a great deal! I love thrifting. And now I'm hungry for nachos :)

  2. Thrifting is so much fun. It's like treasure hunting :) I suggest you make yourself some nachos, it's super easy.
