Goodwill finds!

Hey y’all!

I LOVE Goodwill, Value Village, any thrift store, really! I find a lot of my skirts there. We just moved to Moses Lake, WA and there is a Goodwill about 1 minute from my house…I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing yet… Haha

I went to Goodwill and I found these amazing skirts! (Same skirt just different colors.) They are Old Navy, look brand new, and I got them for $3.99!! I was SO excited! I love maxi skirts, and since it’s 30 degrees or below here, it’s really nice to have some long skirts!











Those of you who know me, you know my favorite place in any thrift store is the book nooks!! I love books just a little too much, probably… It’s an addiction! At least it’s only books I’m addicted to… Haha! So, of course, I also found 2 new books to add to my overflowing bookshelf!

Some of my favorite author’s are

Mary Connealy

Deeanne Gist

Cathy Marie Hake

Dee Henderson

Shirlee McCoy

Lori Wick

Linda Windsor


Right now, my all time favorite author is Marcia Lynn McClure. I adore her books and my goal is to collect all of them! I have 5 on my shelf right now and most of them on my Kindle, but the Kindle is just not the same as holding the real deal!


These are my top favorites! (And it’s not even a drop in the bucket compared to how many books I own!)

I love discovering new authors, so if you know of any good ones, let me know!! :)

Fun stuff

Hey y’all!

So I had a blast in TX!! I’m so glad my best friend and I got to go! And then Last weekend was my cousins wedding everything turned out wonderful! I will be posting pics as soon as we get them!

So the New Look skirt pattern I talked about in my “I can do that for less” post is amazing! I got it and loved it! Its runs a size to small but it turned out great! I also got another New Look skirt pattern and love it as well! If you’re wanting some cute summer skirts it will be a good one I know I will be using it over and over again!!



Here’s the one I just made from this pattern :)


I hope y’all try these great patterns! :)
