props

I managed to find a spare hour between my doctor's exam & picking up Mason at the park in Far Far Away, so I wandered into Goodwill in search of a cocktail shaker and small set of tongs (could not find). Somehow I ended up in the capri pants aisle, where I found a pair that appeared to be my size AND had the 50% off tag of the day [angels sang]. As I held them against my lower body, the handsome young man working down the aisle from me suddenly said "BAM! There she goes!" I looked up curiously and he was smiling at me while straightening the clothes in front of him. "You need those!"

Yes I did. They will be the most fulfilling jeans I'll ever wear.

Grocery boy who?

LOL! I found myself in a thrift store today seeking out crafting supplies and convincing my daughter she was not going to get some dusty old stuffed animal.

her last words before bed were, if I am a good girl tomorrow, can we go back to that store that has everything and get the monkey? aye aye aye!

It may or may not surprise** you to know that nearly all my clothes are from Goodwill.

**this word always looks like it's misspelled.

You seem to find them (deals/boys) at every turn!

omg I can just see it now. You'll be shoveling items out of your house (things you may even need!) several times a week waiting for the Goodwill truck to show up.

Awww crap. I'm trying to send more TO Goodwill, and less FROM Goodwill.

The pants were 'Bam' though.

Your husband is hilarious! Guess he'll have to be sending stuff every week to goodwill now that you have a new "crush" who you'll have to visit. (Maybe you can donate and then go back and buy your own stuff)

Helloe Goodwill Boy, my name is BadMom and I have recently broken up with Grocery Boy. Are you free for ogling?

I would have walked away to disheartened from the lack of a cocktail shaker to carry on ...

Happy pants!

Like you needed an excuse to hit up Goodwill. I'll have to investigate next time I'm in.
