I haven’t been thrifting with my Mama for a while, budget reasons you know. but today we went grocery shopping today — and I thought you might want a few glimpses into what went on
As a bit of backstory, I told my parents that I needed to by a baseball bat for home protection. My Dad, being my Dad thought that it would be better for me to just get a shotgun. Let’s wrap our mind around that, Marika with a gun. Is there anyone out there that doesn’t believe that if there was a gun in the house, the next story about a dog shooting it’s owner would be about Dash and I? First place we went .. big bad ass bat, $2
And I got this
I am doing a mermaid thing in the main bathroom, and while I don’t like the mirror – I do like the pic at the top, and I think it was a deal at $3
Pretty cool, no? I like it.
So what happens in between thrift stores and garage sales? Fun conversation!
Marika: Oh this song makes me cry
Mom: Let’s listen!
And yes, she turned the volume up – I started to tear up …
Mom: hee hee hee
And here is the best thing I got … my mom thinks it’s a special kind of hideous but very me. Honestly, I think I started drooling the second I saw it.
When the sun hits it, the entire bottom lights up. Currently, it is residing in Poe corner next to a window. I’m not allowing myself any more lamps though, I have too many. I need a bookshelf to put them on.
And on the way home? I bought a bottle of water and offered my Mom a sip …
Mom : No thanks I bought this!
She pulled out a box of coconut water and took a sip
15 minutes later …
Mom: It says it’s supposed to be refreshing, it feels like I have feathers in my mouth. It tastes like SHIT. You want to try it?
