Tuesday, what?!

Unbelievably, it's only Tuesday.  Friday might as well be a million years away. It doesn't helped that it rained 497 inches today, thereby flooding our basement.  Grrrrr. 

But, the better news is that a new season of  Sixteen and Pregnant is starting right now.  And I realize how ridiculous it is that I continue to watch every episode, every season, but it's my weakness. That and Jersey Shore, and Diet Coke, of course.  Which, by the way, I have attempted to quit drinking.  Unsuccessfully.  I sent out a desperate email yesterday to two fellow addicts at school and thank goodness they were supplied.  Because the first day back after Spring Break required a little more than my patience.

In other news, I spent a large part of last week listening to my new favorite On Demand radio station.  Sans the strange images they flash while playing all of my 90s favorites, I am totally loving jamming to Wilson Phillips and Oasis while I clean or bake. 

Also, I went thrifting.  And - stop the world - it was scratch-a-deal day.  So, I got 50% off everything.  Which convinced me to buy the Little Tikes picnic table I had my eye on the whole time I circled the store.  Despite being lacquered in a ridiculous amount of crusty barbecue sauce, I just couldn't pass it up for five bucks.  A little soapy water and magic eraser (love those, btw!), and it was good as new. 


I also got these cutie sundresses.  If only the sun would shine and I could actually wear them. 


Also, continuing with my obsession with all things tank top I bought this flowery little number...
 And...don't tell anyone...a maternity top!  But I'm so totally wearing it now and I am anything but pregnant.  {Explanation: It's an XS which is essentially an oxymoron when used with the term maternity.  Come on, who is an XS while preggo?!  Sure as heck not me!}

Here's to Tuesday, a new season of one of my guilty pleasure, and thrifted maternity tops!  Happy mid-week, friends :)

I just love you...so creepy, but seriously, I love reading your blog and aspire to be as crafty a teacher, mom, and thrifter you are! And witty. Okay, this is turning creepy now. I wish the town I lived in had good thrifting. Slim to none down here in the deep dirty south. Luckily home/ATL is quite the opposite!
Happy almost hump day!

Quitting Diet Coke is so hard! I've done it so many times :) It is much easier during a not stressful time! Good finds as the thrift shop! The little table is so cute!

I'm so glad I'm not the only person who is above 24 and still obsessing over Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant! :)

On another note, (don't hate me) I am currently pregnant and can only buy XS at Motherhood. :) Then again, I'm only 24 weeks at the moment. ;) I'm sure here in another month or so I will only be wearing moomoo's. (just kidding)

Your thrift store rocks! I never, ever find cute things there. So jealous!

Add me to the 'I {heart} Mr. Eraser' club.

And boo about the flood in your basement. Hope it is an easy & inexpensive fix!

I love that you go thrifting! A friend of mine forwarded your blog to me after I started posting "Thrifty Thursday" (an outfit which includes thrift store finds) on my blog. Keep it thrifty, girl! :-)
