A mystical omen/Thrifting Part II

Howdy, all!

Happy Sunny Saturday! It's about time, man. Perhaps your week was like mine; starting off slightly depressed in mood after a wicked snowstorm, then personal negativity brought on by (possible) house-buying financial stress, and then finishing with major mood improvement related to sunshine and the approaching weekend.

Today R and I were looking at a house for sale in south Minneapolis (we're not yet working with a realtor) near 35th St and 35th Ave and what did we see? A white squirrel and a regular squirrel playing grab-ass!

Clearly an omen! An omen of what, I don't know.

While we're in the critter vein, R and I welcomed some genetically-altered fish into our aquarium! Check out these GloFish!

They are cute. As usual, I'm trying to get my fish to reproduce, and purchased a silver molly pair; the female looked quite knocked up. But no babies can be found in the tank!

Once again I've been hitting the local thrift stores, even while visiting the Motherland:

The above is a dress from H&M, bought at the Goodwill in Portage, WI for $6.99.

I had great luck at the Unique Thrift Store in the Sun Ray shopping center east of St. Paul. Although a pair of jeans turned out to be too big, check out what else I found!

A khaki twin of the adorable Nine West Sport skirt I found earlier this year!
The cardigan in the above photo is pre-owned as well, coming either from Goodwill or a TurnStyle.

But the piece de resistance was finding almost new Danskos!

Please ignore the non-pedicure.

The running callus on the ball of my foot is featured here. Foxy!

So altogether, the shoes ($14.99) the skirt ($7.99) and the jeans (not pictured, $9.99) all came to $23 dollars with the Monday 25% discount! Jes.

To close, another one of my coats that my littlest sister, KW, hates!

(I took the belt off of it.)

Happy Saturday to y'all!
Wendell!

Squirrels playing grab-ass! An afternoon delight!

Before I read the little blurb about the non-pedicure, I was thinking, "Man, it's only April and her feet already look so nice. I should really deal with my feet." So if that is your non-pedicure state then I am jealous.
