fun finds!

I found some awesome bargains today, that I had to share with you!

I stopped by the donation center at the new Salvation Army store by our house to drop off some old clothes and shoes. Then, I decided to go in to see if the new store had anything good. First of all, I hate digging through racks of stuff, just to find things that you don't really want or need, but this store was so clean and well organized! Right when I walked in to the store I instantly spotted a brand new entertainment center from Rooms To Go! It had a small scratch on the side, but you'd never really notice. I'm considering going back tonight once Josh gets home to pick it up.

I ended up finding this brown linen dress with the tags still on it! It was only $2.50! Once I got home, I paired it with a little white tank and this beaded necklace I already had. A cute little outfit, huh?

I also found this new necklace...
And this cool bangle!

I'd say that it was a very successful shopping trip at the thrift store! Tomorrow is the community garage sale; wonder what I'll find there!

Don't you love finding great things for super-cheap?

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
