Birthdays...and Shopping

My (30th) birthday was last Friday. My mom still had Payton and so I called our favorite babysitter who was available to come be with Max.

We went to the Melting Pot (so yummy) and then went to the movies to see District 9. Very different, yet good, movie. It's weird to feel sorry for aliens.

Saturday my mom came to town. Sunday we went to church and relaxed.

Monday, the fun began!! Mom and I spent 9 hours "thrifting" at different Salvation Army's in the area to find the "finishing pieces" on my wardrobe for work. We found some AMAZING pieces, new with tags, for CHEAP prices! It's so nice to have this market available to us. After another 3 hours of shopping today, we're about done. I need a few pieces of jewelry, a pair of black flats, some boots and a raincoat. Whew!!

The rest of this week holds great time with my mom, my boys and my husband. Thursday we're heading up to Armada Fair, the best "old time" fair in the area. The weekend holds the Air Show out at the military base.

Monday, I start work. Eek. It's happening. It's really happening.

I'm so excited for you about your new job. I just know you're going to do great! Also, it's very cool that you were able to find so many good deals on your wardrobe. I love thrift store shopping!
