Today, we decided to check out a new thrift store in town.
My favorite thrift store was bought out a while back and now the prices are outrageous.
Not cool.
I had high hopes for this new store...

I got these books for the boys for birthday/Christmas gifts.
All in like-new condition.
Total cost: $1.12

I call that a SUCCESS.

That is all.

Jeans, jeans, jeans.

I just finished some quick sewing.
Super quick.

Quick and not at all creative sewing.
Hemming jeans.
(and our apartment has gross carpet. Ignore that. We're moving soon.)

A lot of the jeans we have in our inventories run really, really long.
Which is awesome.
It's awesome because really tall women have a really hard time finding jeans that are long enough for them.... I know first hand and I'm not even THAT tall.
It's also awesome for petite women, because they will end up with jeans that are the perfect length for them.
Everyone is happy.

Where else can you buy jeans and everyone is happy?
Probably no where.

I absolutely love that I am able to help women feel sexy, beautiful and self confident.

BUT, moving on...
This week I'm going to be working on a custom dress for a friend.
I'm looking forward to that.
We have a group on facebook full of crafters and instead of exchanging crafts for $$, we trade for other crafts.
Pretty awesome.
Lots of really talented women, too!

I also have some really exciting news coming up in the next couple weeks.
I'm not going to reveal it until I have pictures to show you as well.
Just trust me, it's awesome.

Also, tomorrow morning is my first class of the semester.
Things are about to get crazy busy and I am more than excited!

What We've Been Up To...

I haven't had many opportunities lately to hop on and post, so I downloaded the Blogger app for iPhone so I could update on the go! However, I can't quite figure out how to get the pictures into the post... I uploaded them, but then couldn't figure out what to do with them!

Back to the drawing board.

Here's what we've been up to lately:

These first two pictures were actually taken a while ago, on our vacation... but still very share worthy!

Levi was so excited to get to drive the boat and then swim in the middle of the big lake! 

I am a Vault Denim Fashion Consultant and had a big party during tax free weekend.
Lots of prizes to give away!
I love my job so much.

We've had some fun trampoline time with friends.

Gabe learned to feed himself finger foods!
He's only gotten puffs so far.
Trying to get the hang of the whole 'swallowing foods that aren't pureed' thing.

We had this gorgeous sunset the other day after a quick summer storm.
Just beautiful.

Levi and I did some tree climbing.
He's going to be a pro in no time!

And finally, my last semester at community college will be starting on the  21st!
I am really excited and anxious at the same time.
I also still have to go get one of my textbooks - they were sold out of it!

But REALLY excited to have a course about education this semester.
It feels good to be learning about what my career will actually entail.
