Yup, girls night out and I had to swing into the thrift store for quick minute. It was on the way to the bar, and I was ALONE! It's been a long week. My friend who works there could see it on my face. She has 4 kids and knows mine fairly well. She reminded me to soak up the quietness and enjoy my time. I did.
Bedtime at my house has been a nightmare. My kids are nightowls and some nights it's 10:00 (or later) before they finally give in and fall asleep.
Secretly, I went with the hopes that my husband would get the kids to bed and I would just come home instead. He did. My daughter was asleep by 7, my son by 8. Seriously? Beyond unfair. You mothers understand. We struggle every night and our husbands swoop in and the kids finally behave when we aren't there. Not even right. I went out anyways...my girls are good for the soul and I needed a break....and a beer...and a shot...and another beer.
I did score a few super finds though before I made my way out!
3 Betsey Johnson sweaters for my littlest nightowl and biggest stinker! $4 a piece!
a little handknit cardi and a sweatshirt for her as well. I don't think her behavior warrants any new clothes...but I couldn't resist.
a prairie style dress for me...because I reward my own bad behavior.
This picture doesn't do this 80s shirt justice. It really is super cute.
that collar goes around to the back (think sailor style).
A great Saturday night. A pieceful thrifting visit, some much needed cocktails...and home before 10 to watch a movie with my love.
