Then I cleaned my house all day Saturday, because I hadn't cleaned in a week. There was not a single clean dish, laundry piles were taller than I am, and literally nothing was in it's place. It was great being able to spend a day at my own pace, putting my home back together. Weeks like this remind me of why I love being a stay at home mom....even though I do work full time, I truly love my modest little home and am so happy to be able to care for it.
I took Friday afternoon off because I took Missy to take her senior pictures; the thought of my baby girl being an adult in a year is really throwing me for a loop. It's fun to watch her make adult decisions, and driving, and that kind of thing. I can't believe her childhood is nearly over. Where did it go, I sometimes wonder? Well, her pictures didn't take very long, and I got my jury duty check, so we headed over to Goodwill. She found quite a few very nice tops and I found this dress:
|Lane Bryant dress, size 18/20 (a bit big on me, but I love the colors!) Purchased for $5.99 on Friday 7/20, at the Goodwill in Orange City, FL with my daughter!|
|I'm wearing a black cami from WalMart, a flea market necklace I bought for $2, and my trusty ol Target flats purchased in 2010 for $6.88.|
|You can see the line of my cami under the dress. I didn't notice that when I was leaving the house. I'm kinda sad now, it doesn't look as cute.|
I also bought a brown dress, purchased for $5.99, which I will debut sometime this week, I'm certain. And a cute ruffly tank which is a citrusy green color (but it's not quite lime, I'm not sure what color it's called!). It was a size 3x which is normally way too big for me, but someone must have dried this tank into oblivion, because it fit me just fine. Then I went to WalMart today after church with the kids to buy the Three Stooges dvd, and I found a white ankle length skirt for $14. Last one in a size 20. Normally I can buy a 16/18 at WalMart but the next size down was an 8 and that was certainly not going to happen. They also had the long skirts in a delightful coral color and a denim-y blue. I may go back to get those last two colors. I just really love a long skirt/pretty tank or top combo with a pair of sandals here in Florida. I'm modestly covered but not overheated, and that is a big deal for me!
